What a great place to visit when you want to get away from the city for a while! Our hosts were gracious, offering advice on where to go, giving us history on the Amish culture, and always asking if there was something we needed. The house is beautifully decorated and it felt very comfortable spending time in the gathering room, reading and watching a movie. The countryside is serene and the people friendly. We woke up to fresh coffee and a deliciously-prepared breakfast of apple french toast, sausage, yogurt with peaches, and homemade pumpkin pie for dessert. I will definitely be back again!
We had a very nice time at this B&B, and would be happy to stay there again. The owners made us feel right at home, and the food was delicious. The location was ideal for driving to places in Lancaster and neighboring counties, and exploring the historic sites in the area.
We had a wonderful and relaxing stay at the Osceola Mill House B&B. The hosts, Pat and Ron Ernst offer a warm welcome and stay ! Their breakfast is delicious. It's in the heartland of the Amish community and close enough to enjoy shopping and entertainment.
This review applies to the "Blue Room". 1. Shower door keeps coming off its tracks. 2. Obvious water damage to floor in bathroom. 3. Bathroom sink is both small and impractical (no place to put anything on it) 3. Room heat can't be controlled(but you can always ask). 4. Hosts are gracious and helpful. Bottom line: you can pay the same or less for nicer accommodations.
Zurück in Deutschland erinnern wir uns besonders gern an unsere Übernachtungen im Osceola Mill House bei Ron & Pat. Die Zimmer sind liebe- und stilvoll eingerichtett, das Frühstück ist ausgezeichnet und die Atmosphäre ausgesprochen freundlich. Die Lage eignet sich gut, um ein wenig in das Leben der Amishpeople hinein zu schnuppern. Katharina&Georg
We stayed here twice, coming and going from a noisy beach destination. On our return visit, Pat's greeting was "Welcome home." We have surely found our home in Pennsylvania! If you like to see the stars, open your windows at night (the traffic by the house was mostly horse-drawn), or enjoy dessert after breakfast, look no further.
I stayed overnight by myself at the end of June as I wanted an opportunity to do just what I wanted, when I wanted and that's what I did! The Inn is beautiful and Patricia and Ron where very attentive and helpful with all my needs. Will definitely stay again and may even bring the hubby next time! Thanks for a great time,Donna N.
We have stayed at Osceola Mill House B&B twice now, and plan on returning many times! Ron and Pat are fabulous people and fantastic hosts. Their breakfasts are to die for, and their knowledge of the local community, culture, and events is invaluable for planning your visit to Amish country. The historic main home pre-dates the Revolutionary War and is absolutely beautiful. It is surrounded by Amish family farms and centrally located with everything you'd want to see very close by. The quiet evenings outside with the thousands of fireflies and sky full of stars is exactly what you need to relax and forget about your big city headaches. We highly recommend Osceola Mill House! Stay in the Carriage House for a nice, quiet get away - a true little home away from home!
Osceola Mill House sits in a perfect and convenient location in Lancaster county, just a few minutes from many tourist attractions. The owners are welcoming and helpful and make you feel right at home. The food was AMAZING! We can't wait to go back again!
My wife and I had a beautiful 2-night stay at Pat and Ron's Osceola Mill House B & B while we were touring the Amish countryside for the first time. Pat and Ron were very hospitable and had great information on the area, like what to see and do, best ice cream places, historic train ride and museum, Amish furniture and craft locations. The room was very clean and had a nice aroma. The breakfest and coffee was excellent. Thanks Ron and Pat.
We had a marvelous time at the Osceola Mill House. Such a peaceful place on a quiet country road neighboring Amish farms. Pat and Ron are outstanding innkeepers. Food was delicious and hospitality was amazing. With breakfast they gave us information and facts about the Amish community including sites to visit & see, stores and snippets about the culture. It was fascinating. The rooms were superbly decorated in the Pennsylvania Dutch tradition. Everything was very clean also. A fantastic find!
My husband and I spent a relaxing weekend at Osceola Mill House B & B. Pat and Ron are friendly and outgoing and have wonderful stories to share about their Amish neighbors. Breakfasts at Osceola Mill House B & B were delicious and filling! We look forward to our next visit! Sue & Bud, Maryland
A warm welcome and beautiful home awaited my husband and me on a week-end get-away for our 20th anniversary. The B&B is close to all area attractions but tucked away in the peaceful countryside away from all the tourist bustle. Ron and Pat were great hosts. The breakfasts were delicious! We highly recommend a stay here.
Both our hosts, Ken and Pat were most friendly and provided us some great insight into the Amish way of life. The B&B was very handy to the Lancaster area with a very pleasant outlook over the surrounding fields. We were certainly provided with a breakfast that kept us going all day.
My fiancé and I just returned from a quick trip to Osceola Mill House and really enjoyed our trip. The home really is in the middle of an Amish community, and the owners are very knowledgeable about the local ways of life. We had a great stay at the house, and enjoyed the recommendations of Ron and Pat on things to do!
The owners are wonderful; they make you feel like you are a part of their family. They are very knowledgable about the area,and extremely accommodating. Ron is a breakfast wizard and Pat makes wonderful desserts (yes, dessert at breakfast!). I have Celiac's and I am never made to feel different at mealtime, they just use a different bread in my French toast ( if that is on the menu). My husband and I love it here!
Ron and Pat were the best, wonderful hosts! We were very fortunate to be able to stay at their B&B, we are so looking forward to our next visit. Kudos to the cook(Ron) and the dessert maker (Pat). The sit down breakfast is the best, allows for conversation among all the guests and our hosts. Thank you so much, see you next year!
Great place to stay, Innkeepers couldn't be nicer, more informative about the area, or try harder to please us. Thanks Ron & Pat. Special mentions for Morris, Latte, and rest of the kitties.
My wife and I just returned from the Osceola Mill House Bed and Breakfast after I had planned a quick Columbus Day Weekend getaway that also doubled as our "babymoon." I have been coming to Amish Country since I was a young child, but this was, by far, my best trip to the area. Where we stayed is what made it so wonderful. Ron and Pat are great hosts who greet you with a smile as they welcome you into their family. Each room has a very quaint decor that matches the warmth of the home. We stayed in the Rose Room which had extra special meaning to us as it was formerly the birthing room of the home. The amenities were great, and conversation with Ron and Pat was even greater. Of course, our review wouldn't be complete without us mentioning the breakfasts that are bar none, the best we've ever had at a B&B. Everything was great, right down to the dessert that came with breakfast! Our trip was great and we will definitely be back again!
My husband and I stayed at the Osceola Mill House during a weekend getaway in Lancaster. After reviewing (and watching the price increase) at several local hotels, we booked our stay here. (Suggestion: book directly through their website, NOT hotels.com) Check in was by 9 p.m. and Ron and Pat (the owners) were ready and waiting for us when we arrived; we were afraid we would be late due to traffic, but they knew we were coming and were prepared! We stayed in the green room - a lovely space. The bed is high and comfortable - our windows looked out over the property and the road frequently traveled by buggies. (There are some cute kitties on the property, too!) There is no television in the bedroom, but the living spaces downstairs provide a televison, Keurig, and movies, books, and games. The bathroom for the green room is just across the hall - it was well-stocked with towels and toiletries. Ron & Pat have thought of everything you could possibly need for your stay! Breakfast is served in the formal dining room each morning at 8:30 were you will enjoy a gourmet multi-course breakfast and conversation with other guests. Ron & Pat truly treat you like a member of the family staying in their own home and we will definitely return here in the future!
We loved this cute little b&b. Very comfortable homey place. The bed was soft, we fell right asleep, and everything is covered in quilts. There is a neat mill right next door and buggies going by all the time. The inn is in a quiet little area in the cornfields, which allows for amazing morning walks. The hosts were friendly and gracious. They gave us great dining advice, we went to the Revere Tavern for a romantic, amazingly good meal. We were a little jealous of the claw foot tub in the next room, our room just had a small shower. Breakfast was wonderful, quiche, pumpkin and oatmeal scones with apple butter, pear crisp with yougrt, and chocolate shew fly pie for breakfast! We will be back!
My husband and I spent a lovely weekend at Osceola Mill House Bed and Breakfast. The owners, Pat and Ron were very knowledgeable about the Amish and the surrounding area. We found lots of things to do for fun thanks to their suggestions. The food was delicious and the company was pleasant. We will definitely be back for another visit.
You couldn't find hosts who would be kinder or more informative than Pat and Ron. On our first stay we concluded it was the best experience we had ever had at a B&B. They are welcoming without being intrusive or oppressive. The property and rooms are charming and out of the way, which means you get an 'authentic' experience of the area. Take a walk at night (with a loaner lamp) to really experience the rural neighborhood. (Positive) warning -- don't expect to need lunch. Breakfast is wonderful and should keep you satisfied until dinner. We will absolutely be back, perhaps bringing friends and family.
We had a very relaxing getaway staying at the Osceola Mill House B&B! Ron is an extremely welcoming host, extraordinary chef, and knowledgeable guide to the Amish and their community! We stayed an extra 3rd night.......the countryside is peaceful and the accommodations quite comfortable! Would definitely stay here again!!
