The Space

Just finished a complete remodeling of my house and thought some skiers or other visitors to the area might like a simple, inexpensive place to stay. The futon is about the size of a double bed, so it could accommodate two people but rather cozily. A queen size bed in additional room is now available (not yet photographed).

I assume if you're coming to Mercersburg you have some idea of what to expect, but it's a tiny town with half-a-dozen eating establishments (some of which are top notch, however) and marginal sources of entertainment, other than the Mercersburg Academy and Whitetail Ski & Golf Resorts. My house is within relatively easy walking distance of the Academy and about 10 minutes from the Whitetail Resorts.

Neighborhood is relatively quiet and safe for running or walking. If you'd like to see more photos of the house, let me know.

Self-serve breakfast is available: cereal, fruit, yogurt, oatmeal. If you would like a hot breakfast prepared, you need to let me know.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Walt actually set me up in the larger room at his house. I had some issues finding Walt's house with my navigation system. However, he was very patient and eventually got me to the right place. His house is set in a very peaceful setting. It was very clean and tidy. The bed was comfy and the sheets and towels were soft. I was able to take a very short drive (less than a mile) to a great pub for dinner. It's a great spot and would recommend it if you are in the area.

  • I recently went skiing and stayed in this room. The futon bed was very comfortable, and everything was clean. It was a great deal:)

  • I booked this room for a companion who accompanied me on a recent trip to Whitetail ski resort. Although I personally did not stay in the room, I was told it was quite comfortable and,very clean, although slightly smaller in size compared to the Queen bed guest room next door.. Definitely suitable for one person.

    The common areas (kitchen, bathroom and living/dining rooms) have been wonderfully updated with quality fixtures and flooring throughout.

    As other guests have mentioned, the house location from the road is a bit tricky to find using GPS, so definitely coordinate specifics before arrival.

    We didnt get a chance to explore the town of Mercersburg, although we were able to grab dinner at Flannery's Tavern located on North Main Street, about a five minute car ride from Walt's place. Highly recommend.

    Walt is a very friendly & gracious host. Extra bonus points for flexible check in and providing juices and cereal/eggs for a quick breakfast before departure.

    Will definitely stay again during my next visit to Whitetail!

  • I had some very nice and relaxing days at Walt's house and got the opportunity to be nearby my son at the Academy. I want to thank him for being a great host. Walt is very flexible and helpful.
    Again thanks a lot!!!

  • Great place. Quiet and comfortable house and bedroom with a great view on the cornfields. We only stayed one night and didn't even get the chance to meet our host. But everything was well prepared and the door was left open for us. We liked the confidence given and really recommend this place to stay.

  • Walt was a very gracious host and also good at giving me space. He's got a lovely location, tucked away on a small lane, beside a corn field. Everything was clean and comfortable, and Walt is flexibe about check-in and check-out times.
    I highly recommend Walt's place, and also suggest that you have him give you clear directions about locating the house, as there is no house number on the street or on the house, as far as I could tell.
    My GPS located his house, just fine, but I was not sure I was at the right place, because I couldn't see any house number.
    The guest room is nicer than what you see in the photo, and the whole house is newly remodeled, so everything is very fresh and new.

  • This is a really nice place to stay. The location and the house are beautiful! Mercersburg is a nice little town with some good restaurants. You can easily walk there. The views are really pretty.

    The house itself is awesome. The room is big, the bed is good and everything is really clean. Walt is a great host!

  • Walt is a very friendly, hospitable host, and we had an enjoyable stay. Of particular importance to us, his home is impeccably clean and chemical free, and my guest -- who has asthma and chemical sensitivities that prevent her from staying in most hotels and B&Bs -- was very comfortable and distress free. Highly recommended!

  • My two-night stay was very comfortable. Walt is friendly and helpful, and the house is newly renovated and impeccably clean. The location is at the edge of the settled area of Mercersburg, with a pleasant view across farmland toward the Mercersburg Academy. I would highly recommend this as an option for a single person or couple visiting the Academy, or skiing at Whitetail.
