CatYour hosts, John & Robin Trevaskis, run the Past Purr-fect Bed & Breakfast located at 216 N. Main Street, Jacobus in York County Pennsylvania.

Sometime between 1869 and 1893 our Victorian style house was build by Frederick and Henrietta Emenheiser. Large flower gardens, a pond, and majestic trees lure guests to sit on the white wicker furniture in the screened-in porch.
