Carriage Corner B&B is the perfect introduction to the original concept of Bed and Breakfast: affordable lodging, genuine hospitality, delicious breakfasts and immaculate housekeeping. With tasteful handcrafted touches of folk-art, the B&B offers a relaxing country atmosphere; situated in the hub of Lancaster County's beautiful farmland and tourist area. Gordon is willing to share his knowledge and love of the area and assists in planning itineraries. He is also at times able to arrange dinners with Amish friends. Resources on the area are provided in guest rooms as well as in the common room where one can curl up with a steeping cup of tea and read about the Amish lifestyle in front of a gas log stove. Wake up and let the wafting aroma of freshly brewed coffee lure you to our breakfast table. Inn specialties might include Oatmeal Pancakes, fruit bread cream cheese french toast, or a "Lancaster County Omelet", baked oatmeal and muffins.

This was our first time visiting the Amish area. Carriage Corner is a great place to stay and relax. Gordon was a great host with an outstanding breakfast each morning. He was very helpful with information about the area and places to visit. My wife and I met great people from all over the world there. I would recommend having dinner with a local Amish family. Great location to all the sights. I would recommend anyone to stay there. Great job Gordon!!!!!!

My husband and I stayed here mid August for a last minute getaway. Several reviews stated that it was noisy as this B&B is located on a corner lot of a main road but we did not hear anything. The room was super clean (I am a germaphobic & neat freak). It was a lovely place to stay (without kids) and close to all the Amish attractions. The inn keeper, Gordon (?) contacted a local Amish family who hosted an authentic Amish meal (delishious and filling) where we were invited to share a meal at an Amish house with an local Amish family (very interesting) for a small donation of $16-20 per person. I would definitely recommend the Carriage Corner B&B as it is clean, inexpensive, and Gordon prepares a yummy breakfast in the AM. Cheers!

If what you are looking for in a B&B is an old fashion house then this isn't your place BUT it is a very nice home furnished with that old fashion look on the inside. Great location if you want to shop the Amish country but not a quiet stay - sits on a main road that not only is carriage corner but car corner. We did meet some really nice people also staying there and had an awesome breakfast (food and conversation)

We had a great experience at Gordon and Gwen's place. The place was so clean and cozy. We had very good breakfast and met with nice people during the breakfast. Gordon is very nice and he knows a lot about the area. He helped us with planning our trip. Also, he scheduled a dinner with an Amish family for us which was a good experience. We will definitely go back.

Gordon went out of his way to make sure we had a pleasant stay. The food was fresh and good, and the information and love he had for the area was obvious. The home itself is beautiful, comfortable and well-appointed. The only slight negative is that during typical traffic times, it's on a busy corner, so you have to be careful getting out. I recommend this B&B without hesitation.

Gordon and Gwen Schuit
Gordon, with a background in pastoral ministry, has long desired to have a home open to others and enjoys extending hospitality. Gwen is CEO of Friendship Community that serves people with disabilities and thus is removed from the day to day running of the B&B. However, her decorative skills have touched the B&B.

Carriage Corner Oatmeal Pancakes
One of the frequently asked for recipees is that of our Oatmeal Pancakes which are often served with a compliment of other kinds of Pancakes on Saturday morning. Made with Long Cooking and Oats and Buttermilk and served with Vermont Maple syrup and bacon or local sausage, it's the perfect start for exploration in the Amish Farmland!
