We loved that the children had the freedom to be as interactive as they like with the animals throughot the day. Our room was very cool on a hot day and exceptionally clean. I was concerned about the smell - being on a dairy farm - but there was none.
On the way home from a 2 night stay at Rocky Acre, my 8 year old son told us that this was "The BEST vacation ever" and my 5 year old daughter said it was "totally awesome!". This B&B is an amazing place where we all got to gather eggs, milk the cows, feed the calves, feed goats, and on our last morning we were lucky enough to watch the birth of a calf. Pony rides, tractor rides and a family hayride followed a breakfast that was nothing short of phenomenal. Mr. and Mrs. Benner have made this a very kid and family oriented vacation spot and it was so much fun to see all the kids playing together. The rooms are clean, the staff is friendly,and it truly is just a beautiful place. This was the most relaxing vacation we have every had with the kids!
Rocky Acres was everything it promised and more. The house was lovely and very cool on a hot day. Our room was just as pictured and very clean! Most of the activities were available throughout the day. River, kayaks, and play structures made it a great place for kids to play in the shade, while we relaxed. The family style breakfast was our favorite breakfast of our 7 day vacation!
We are from the FL and came back to Rocky Acre for the second time. We love it here because we are not from the country and for us it's a different way of life for a few days. Even my 12 year old son enjoyed sitting on the porch just relaxing with the cats, when he wasn't off kayaking or we doing other things on the farm. We can't wait to go back again!!
My Partner and I spent a night in this wonderful place on our road trip from Kansas. Nancy is a wonderful, generous hostess and she made our experience perfect. Our room was charming (the old Parlor) and breakfast on the porch was very special. Mount Joy is a charming town and I highly recommend that you stop here for the night if you are in the area.
This is the second time we've stayed at Rocky Acre Farms. We love it! Kids are welcome & it is so fun for them & us! Hay rides, tractor rides, pony rides, milk the cows, feed the goats, gather eggs, kayak or play in the creek, feed the bull calves...lots to do! Kittens everywhere! Breakfast is excellent - so much food! Best breakfast we've ever had. Rooms are extremely clean. I'm picky about cleanliness in hotels, b&b's, etc. and this place impresses me.
We had two families plan the trip together. We brought food to grill out and a ball for kickball. Everything was amazing our kids aged 8 &5 loved playing with kittens and seeing all the farm activities. We loved every minute of it. All the kids said they would rather go back to the farm then to a the beach next year. We will definitely be back.
We had such a lovely stay at Rocky Acres! My husband and I traveled with our 3.5 yr old and 2 month old. The home was perfect for families with kids. Our room was very clean and did not feel like I was on a farm it was very comfy and well air conditioned and decorated tastefully which being a city girl I really appreciated. Our daughter loved playing with the kittens, playing in the playhouse and collecting eggs for breakfast. Which speaking of breakfast it was served family style and each dish was amazing. We will definitely be returning for another stay at Rocky Acres. Two days just wasn't enough!
This place has a "home away from home" appeal. The Inn Keeper is very friendly and accommodating. The breakfasts are delicious and Nancy has a flair for detail without being fussy. This was our second visit and we prefer this to a hotel in the area. Our son lives nearby and we are happy to have discovered the Olde Square Inn in this quaint little town.
Thankful for such an amazing family vacation. Our four children ages 11, 8, 5 and 4 absolutely loved their time on the farm. The room, breakfast and hosts were wonderful. There was so much to do and all of us enjoyed gathering the eggs, feeding the calves, goats and pony. It was also a great chance to learn about the dairy farm and visit the Lancaster/Dutch country. My kids are already asking when we can return and we have recommended it to all of our friends.
We have been coming to Rockyacre for the last 23 years. My parents vacationed here with my 3 sisters and myself since I am 9 years old ! I now vacation here with my husband and our 3 children. Holly, Eileen and Gaelin are more like family to us and we can not express our love enough for them and their beautiful farm. I highly recommended Rockyacre for anyone looking for relaxation yet fun for the whole family all tied into one. Thank you from our family to yours for yet another wonderful time and more memories with our littles. Best regards Allison Faraci- Weinmeier
We went for a weekend in May with our three young boys and had a fabulous experience. The boys loved the hayride, playing the the kitten, cuddling the the rabbits, running around, grilling marshmallows, running with the dogs on this scenic beautiful old style farm house with a charming and friendly host family. We never needed to venture outside, but Marietta and Elizabeth town nearby have nice dining, Cafes and many other child friendly venues and activities... highly recommended.
Great place to go to get away from every day life . It takes you back in time . The Benner/Noll family treats everyone like family , the breakfast is amazing and the rooms are large and clean . Kids can get poney rides feed baby calfs and collect eggs . The can even find green ones . Make sure you book for next year before you leave , it is like a timeshare !!
It was our 2nd years to visit. We stayed with joy and relaxing. We just left for two days but my daughter cannot wait for the next visiting already. Breakfast is a highlight !
What can you say about a B and B that greets you with warm chocolate chip cookies and a clean beautiful room. We were greeted by Nancy who was wonderful and made us feel welcome and part of the family . Our room was great and our stay was way too short. Hate to have to leave as the Benner family makes you feel like part of the family . We were so lucky to be there when Mrs. Benner returned from Florida and she and Holly cooked up some delicious breakfasts . Nothing is better than their farm breakfasts. Can not wait until we go back to this place. My daughter counts the days and we both wish that we could go every weekend
We love Rocky Acre. My girls always find someone to play with, love feeding the animals and just have a great time. The rooms are amazingly clean, modern and spacious. The breakfast is AMAZZZING. These are good and kind people and I love their daily recommendations of things to do, along with the relaxing vibe of this fun, family-friendly farm. Cannot wait to go again!
All staff especially Holly, Laura and Jason were much more than great, they have found their calling and instantly make you feel like a part of their family. The rooms are immaculate and the country breakfast was fantastic. The farm experience was fun for the grand daughters and just as much fun for the grandparents. We loved everything about Rocky Acre and will return with more of the grand kids. Thank you for a great time. John, Peg, Alex and Sara
I have been taking my children here for a least 18 years. The rooms are so clean and comfortable. The owners and staff are friendly and warm. Wouldn't stay any place else when coming to Lancaster. My children love it here as well as I and my husband. We brought a family with us this last time and they absolutely loved it. I know I will always return here at least once a year and they want to come as well. Love the place and the people!
We enjoyed every minute. The farm had something wonderful for all the ages. We loved using the kayaks and the golf cart especially. The other guests were also friendly and welcoming. I only wished we had stayed longer.
