Moore's Mountain Inn sits along the Yellow Breeches Creek in south-central Pennsylvania. This 1798 brownstone tavern has been graciously restored to include three charming guest rooms each with private bath.
The Owners, Jared and Karen Moore, live onsite with their Golden Retriever, Mackie, but their quarters (including the kitchen) are separate from the guest quarters.
Common Areas that are shared by guests and the Moore's include a screened front porch, dining room, bar, media room, Hot Tub, and firepit. The owners are also avid gardeners and the landscaping reflects this.
The Inn is conveniently located near Ski Roundtop and Messiah College just 10 miles south of Harrisburg, PA, and 25 miles from Hershey and Gettysburg. The area is rural, but Rt 114 is a main thoroughfare, and our close proximity to to I-81 and the intersections of routes 15, I-83 and I-76 make area businesses and attractions easily accessible.
Those who are traveling on business or for pleasure have found their stay with us affordable, secure, and more enjoyable than an impersonal hotel or motel. We are also the perfect pit-stop for “Snowbirds” traveling to and from warmer climates!
You must be at least 25 years old to book with us, and the rate for each of our 3 rooms is $90/night plus state (6%) and local (5%) taxes. The rate for 2 rooms is $180/night, and the rate for ALL 3 rooms is $270/night.

Moore's Mountain Inn is located in the rolling foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. It sits along the Yellow Breeches Creek, an officially designated Pennsylvania scenic river.
You can and enjoy cycling, jogging, or walking a nature trail that starts from our doorstep and includes the George and Rita Garstad Nature Trail in Lower Allen Community Park. You can also try your hand at trout fishing, tubing, or kayaking on the Yellow Breeches, or just sit back, relax, and take it easy.
We have a Mechanicsburg, PA mailing address, but we are located near the town of Lisburn on the corner of Moore’s Mountain Road and PA Route 114 (Cedars Rd). The inn is a brownstone with a wood-frame addition. A stone wall with a white horse fence atop surrounds the front gardens and grounds.
In 1798 Adam Brazier erected a brownstone tavern overlooking the Yellow Breeches Creek. Across the stream was New Lisburn, a Scott-Irish town established a half century earlier. Lisburn, as it is known today, was a thriving metropolis and a midway point for travelers going between Carlisle and York - Harrisburg wasn’t even on the map! The stone tavern, like most taverns of that era, doubled as an inn and for many years hosted area travelers.
The bustle around New Lisburn eventually disappeared and the tavern along with it. During most of its 200 year history, the structure has been used simply as a residence. However, there is also evidence that during that same period it served as a tannery, general store, and tobacco shop. There is little known about the inn during the Civil War period, but records show that Lisburn, and probably the tavern, were occupied for a short time by confederate troops.
In 1987 the structure was purchased by the Moore’s. They refurbished it and, in 1991, opened Moore’s Mountain Inn to revive a tradition started nearly 200 years before. “History is destined to repeat itself.” A saying which has certainly held true for Moore’s Mountain Inn. Two centuries after its construction, an old inn is once again offering hospitality and overnight stay to area travelers. And although we’ve never seen him, a previous owner reported encounters with a friendly ghost – perhaps old Adam Brazier himself is still keeping shop here!
