Located in the heart of Amish Country, you are invited to experience the history and elegance of a Victorian mansion, once a "Safe-House" on the Underground Railroad. Built in 1845 by Captain William Fassitt as a way to entertain guests and throw lavish parties located halfway between Philadelphia and Harrisburg, it was also a frequent stop for weary travelers. The Fassitt Mansion boasts twelve-foot ceilings, decorative molding in every room, deep windowsills and spacious guest rooms. A full country breakfast served family style at the oversized dining room table every morning. Authentic Amish foods are available. Upon your arrival, you can expect to relax and enjoy an afternoon snack, a warm or cold beverage, rest and relaxation. They will be happy to make any arrangements or reservations for you to have dinner at a local restaurant.
