Cumberland Valley Bed & Breakfast Association
The Cumberland Valley offers a collection of authentic Pennsylvania lodging treasures. Up and down the Cumberland Valley of south central Pennsylvania, innkeepers offer a warm welcome and lots of information about the small towns along the I-81 corridor. Our Inns are centrally located near Hershey, Harrisburg, Gettysburg, Carlisle, and Chambersburg. Indoors or out, there is plenty to do and see at museums, festivals, hiking trails, skiing, and more.
It’s all things auto at Carlisle Events, the largest car, truck and motorcycle events in the country. Carlisle has arguably the oldest college in the United States. Dickinson College was the first college chartered after our constitution was signed. The Army Heritage Trail outside the U.S. Army Heritage & Educational Center offers 14 full-scale recreations of military sites such as a Revolutionary War redoubt, Civil War Cabins and a World War I trench. You can still see the subterranean river bubbling up at the river edge of Children’s Lake behind the Federal-style Boiling Springs Tavern built in 1832. With its large stone furnace that serves as a testimony to its history, the tavern is a restaurant and bar serving seafood, steak, and pasta. Boiling Springs is famous for the spring fed limestone streams which are home to rainbow trout. Hike the 20-mile stretch of the Appalachian Trail between Caledonia and Pine Grove Furnace state parks past historic sites, tumbling streams and blooming mountain laurel. A must-see stop is at the Appalachian Trail Museum. The Chambersburg Heritage Center explores the role the town played in the Civil War. A bronze Union soldier still stands watch to warn of the attack of southern troops before the burning of the town in 1864. Hit the slopes at Roundtop Mountain Resort or nearby Liberty and Whitetail resorts. Season passes and discount cards are transferable among all three resorts.
Nearby attractions include: Hershey’s Chocolate World, Hershey Gardens, Giant Center, Pennsylvania State Capitol, National Civil War Museum, and the Gettysburg National Military Park Museum and Visitor Center.
