A Lancaster Pennsylvania Bed and Breakfast
Escape to our Lancaster, PA bed and breakfast located in the heart of Lancaster County, a quiet and unspoiled location that is home to the PA Dutch, Amish and Mennonite families living on acres of stunning beauty. As you visit, you can catch a glimpse of a lifestyle that focuses on the simple way of living that hasn’t changed much over the years.
Lancaster County earns its title as the "Garden Spot of the USA" as a result of the productive land farmed by the local farmers with their tractors or mules. In some areas of Lancaster County you will see no electric lines being run to the farms. You’ll observe the slow pace of the horse-drawn buggies. The Amish drive the grey buggies seen primarily in the Intercourse and Strasburg area, while the Old Order Mennonite folk drive the black buggies in the New Holland and Terre Hill areas of Lancaster County. Life is not as hurried in their communities.
Our Lancaster bed and breakfast is located in a prime area of rural Lancaster County. The city of Lancaster is about 4 miles to the west of us while Strasburg is 4 miles to the east of us. We are only 1 mile from Route 30, where the Tanger and Rockvale Square outlets provide great shopping.
Enjoy the view of the fields and the working dairy farm across the street from the comfort of a rocking chair on our wrap-around front porch. Relax in our gazebo for a spell and watch the fireflies light up the summer evening, read a book on the porch swing, enjoy a walk through our gardens, put together a puzzle, or take a nap in the hammock in the shade of our evergreen grove.
Be sure to explore Lancaster County and enjoy the agricultural fields, stop at a roadside stand for some homemade root beer or buy some fresh produce. Take a bike ride on the back roads or explore the many historic Lancaster County covered bridges.
Shop at the Olde Mill House gift shop (housed in a restored barn) a half-mile down the road or visit the Strasburg antique market for a prized gift. Play a game of miniature golf or ask about our favorite restaurants for fresh and delicious food. We may even be able to arrange a dinner in an Amish home for you, if we know in advance and based on availability.
