We love children, but have created Hartzell House Bed & Breakfast to be an adult-centered accommodation for those wishing a quiet and/or romantic retreat in Southwestern Pennsylvania. As such, the B&B is in no manner child-proof, and we are unequipped for infants, toddlers, or children under 12 years old. We are sorry that we find it necessary to stress this, but if you choose to arrive with a child you will be in breach of our policies and will be turned away. You will forfeit your deposit and owe for your entire reservation.

If Hartzell House Bed & Breakfast does not seem to be a good fit for your situation, we understand and are happy to recommend a nearby, child friendly accommodation of quality. Check our Other Area Accommodations page for links. We love Hanna House, a 200-year-old, brick farmhouse on 200 acres with a fishing pond, whose awesome innkeeper has created a fabulous family retreat!

Terms & Conditions

Advance reservations are required.

Hartzell House Bed & Breakfast property is reserved for guests only; no unregistered visitors are allowed without specific, written approval.

Deposit of one night’s payment is required to guarantee a reservation.

Cancellations must be received at least 7 days in advance of your reserved date in order for a return of your deposit. If cancellation is received within 7 days of your reserved date, the return of your deposit will be contingent upon our ability to re-book the room. All cancellations are subject to a $35.00 service fee.

​If your reservation is made through a third party booking service (Booking.com, Priceline, etc.), the cancellation policy which is stated online through that third party supersedes the Hartzell House Bed & Breakfast policy and will be enforced according to those terms.

No shows and cancellations made within 24 hours of your arrival date will be charged the entire amount of your reservation. As soon as you have checked in, you are responsible for paying for the entire stay. If you decide to check out early, no refund, in full or part, will be given.

We understand emergencies and bereavements, and if you encounter one, please call us and we will arrange to hold your deposit for a later date with no penalties.

If reserving 3 or more rooms a 50% deposit is required, and cancellations must be received at least 30 days in advance of reserved date for return of deposit, less a $35.00 per room cancellation fee. If cancellation is received within 30 days of your reserved date, return of your deposit will be contingent upon our ability to re-book the rooms. We require one source of payment for both the deposit and the final balance. Each room in the reservation may not have a separate billing and payment source.

Whole house bookings require a $1500, refundable security/damage deposit, and a signed rental agreement.

Check-in is between 4:00 and 9:00 PM (we get up quite early to ensure a scrumptious breakfast experience and a clean, revitalizing experience for you, so please allow us to get to bed at a reasonable hour!) Later check-in may occasionally be available at a surcharge of $25 per hour, or portion thereof, for any time beyond 9pm until midnight, after which time we do not accept check-ins and that day’s reservation is forfeit. Check-out is by 11:00 AM. Extended hours may be accommodated only if pre-arranged and agreed upon in writing. If this does not work for you, we understand and would love to offer you some other quality options to Hartzell House Bed & Breakfast.

All room rates are subject to state and local taxes.

Hartzell House does not accept Gift Certificates originating from an outside source.

Due to health, safety, and fire regulations, room occupancy limits may not be exceeded.

Pets cannot be accommodated anywhere on Hartzell House Bed & Breakfast property, although service animals are welcome in conjunction with accommodations in the Patriot’s Suite. Pets are not allowed to be kept in cars on our property (We can’t believe we actually need to say this!).

Hartzell House Bed & Breakfast is a smoke-free establishment; no smoking in the building or at any place on the property with the exception of the bench at the back of the west parking lot. Evidence of smoking in the house may result in a $250 cleaning fee.

Kindly notify us immediately if there is any potential change in your booking.

Please note:

Hartzell House Bed & Breakfast welcomes all conscientious guests regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, race, marital status, religion, or ethnic origin. We encourage our guests to be comfortable and be themselves here. There will be no effort to impose any of our political, personal, or social convictions on our guests at any time, nor any effort to create an environment where guests’ personal convictions may feel unwelcome. We honor and are grateful for all those we are fortunate enough to host, and ask that all of our guests show courtesy and respect to each other. If you take exception to any of our policies, we can recommend other area accommodations for you.
