Guest Reviews

I loved this cute b & b. It really felt like we stepped back in time. Kind & helpful staff who really seemed passionate about the history of the property. Comfy bed. Breakfast was very cute... nice variety of offerings. Very cool area, historical, fun to do something different and not stay at a chain hotel. Would come back for sure!

- Robin Rohrich

We stayed in the Conservatory room and it was such a cool experience. The mansion with its history is so special. The entire property is relaxing. Between the parlour room and the complimentary port wine, beautiful outdoor seating, complimentary breakfast and exceptional service…I’d recommend this for all my family and friends. Within walking distance to restaurants, bars and shopping, it’s a perfect romantic getaway.

- Kimmy Martinez

Great location in S Bethlehem. Close to everything you want to do, then come back to cozy and welcoming charm. Our room is very well maintained, super clean and lots of personal touches to keep us comfortable. Fresh and tasteful decor - not a stuffy old BnB! Definitely recommend!

We’ve been trying to get to tea at Sayre Mansion for ages. Unfortunately they only offer it on Thursday afternoons, so it’s very difficult for those people with full-time jobs.

Every detail was perfectly thought out. I...See More

Our time at the Sayre Mansion was lovely. The breakfast menu was a treat with a hot menu that changed daily. The food was fresh and delicious. The waitstaff were so nice and accommodating. There is a nice front porch to enjoy outdoors as well as a comfortable sitting room. I would definitely come back when I’m in Bethlehem again.,
