We spent a wonderful weekend at rocky acre. Our children had a wonderful time and were sad that we had to leave. The food was delicious and the accommodations outstanding! We enjoyed our time away from the crazy hectic lives we lead.... No phones, no TVs!!!!! I would highly recommend!!!
We have been going to Rocky Acre Farm B&B since our son was 2. He is now 7 and still loves it! The Benners make you feel like one of the family. They are special people, and it has been a privilege to spend time in their home.
My kids, as well as my husband and I had an absolute blast. They played with the kittens and fed the baby cows. Had a great time on the hay rides as well as tractor rides. The Brenner Family were wonderful hosts and their breakfast was fantastic. We look forward to returning.
Rocky acres was a wonderful experience! We are farmers from Georgia and had a blast experiencing 'farm life' on a Pennsylvania dairy farm! The breakfasts were unbelievable and hospitality even better!!!
We love this place! We are a family of 7. There was something for everyone. Our little ones played with kittens, collected eggs, fed the bull calves. Our other kids milked cows, fed the goats, drove the golf cart, and played in the game room. The breakfast was delicious, the staff was great! We stayed in the apartment, the oldest part of the farm. The rooms were great (we loved the feel in the living room). We would def stay here again.
My family (2 x adults & 2 kids (10 and 8)) stayed and had a really great time. We had the efficiency room, which while was at the top of 2 narrow flights of stairs, was great. Large clean room, queen + 2 x singles + spa like ensuite. Great local recommendation for dinner. Breakfast was awesome. couldn't eat anymore. After breakfast the owner gave free rides on ponies, hay rides, ATV rides, etc. to show off his farm. I could not have asked for more. Strongly recommend for anyone with kids! We'll be back!!!
This was a first time in a farm and in a b&b. The experience was great, we made a lot of friends. The innkeepers are very nice people whom try to accommodate everyone. They really cater to the kids. Breakfast was really good and plenty. We loved it and we will comeback next year!
Truly enjoyed our longer labor day weekend stay at the Rocky Acre Farm B&B. Our top picks were the activities offered for the kids and the entire family, i.e. pony and barrel and hey tractor rides. My daughter has spent most of her time playing with kittens, loved the kids playhouse and game room. great breakfast, clean rooms and caring staff. great location to explore the area, however you could also just spend the entire stay at the B&B too!
All in our visiting group 4 children and 3 adults had a wonderful time. The children enjoyed all the activities starting at 6:00 am and commencing with games in the family room (all without TV or iPods......hooray!!!!! Needless to say everyone slept well. The accommodations and breakfasts were outstanding. We're ready for a return trip next year..
I wanted to take our two kids (8 & 10) to a farm to experience something different than our typical beach trips we take. When I was about 10 I spent two weeks on my Uncles farm and those great memories are still with me nearly 35 years later. This place came highly recommended by a friend and the reviews were fantastic. The room was great. It was modern inside, yet had the charm of a century ago. We stayed for two days and we planned to stay on the farm the whole time (except for dinner). Our kids enjoy getting the eggs from the hen house and they even milked the cows. I was hoping they would have enjoyed the farms animals a little more, but the kitttens stole the show. The golf cart they have there for guests use was also a big hit with my son. The reviews of the breakfast set the bar extremely high, but although I enjoyed the breakfast, I was not blown away. Don't get me wrong, breakfast is very good there, but I did not get the same experience as the other guests who left reviews. Because we spent all the time at the Farm, a major factory in how much fun the kids will have is the other guests that are there. When we arrived, most of the kids were older (about 7 years old to teens) which was great for our family. The kids and adults have alot of fun playing basketball, etc. When we were leaving, there were infants/todlers. Babies crying is not what you want to hear on vacation (especially at a bed & breakfast where you are all so close) plus not many kids for my kids to play with. They have a great (FREE) game room with plenty to to do in the evening or when raining. They have air hockey, pool, ping pong, skeeball and shuffle board...all free. Our family had a wonderful time and plan to go back. As long as there are other kids close to my kids age, they will have a great time!
This is a place you'll go back to year after year. We do. Just relax on a working farm, take in the sights or visit HersheyPark. There's no lack of either relaxation or things to do. You'll be treated like visiting friends and family. But, don't delay, they sell out a year in advance.
Our family visits this B & B annually and have been doing so for 11 years. Our children were small when our trips there began, now they are in college and high school and still LOVE the farm. This B & B trip is one our favorite family traditions. Thank you Eileen, Galen and Holly for your wonderful hospitality!
Our room was very spacious and clean-we had the Fireplace room. The home was very well kept and comfortable, the staff friendly and welcoming, and delicious breakfasts with plenty of food. The farm was amazing with lots of activities all included in your stay-hay ride each morning, pony rides, milk cows, pick eggs from hen house, kayacking, feed the goats, and more! Perfect family-friendly farm. We already booked for next year!
We stayed at Rocky Acre at the beginning of August and the stay far exceeded my expectations. The staff and other guests were so friendly that it felt that you were part of the family. It was so great for the kids to experience some aspects of farm life like collecting eggs and feeding the calves. We were even lucky enough to see a calf being born. My kids enjoyed playing with the other children, and there was so much to keep them occupied. I was so happy to see them get away from the electronic games. I can't wait to visit again!
We took our granchildren, ages 8 and 5 and spent three nights at Rocky Acre. It was so much fun and the children were thrilled. They loved the animals, the hayride, the pony ride, etc. They loved exploring the farm area and getting the eggs from the hen house. It is a great location for venturing out to Dutch Wonderland, Lancaster, and Cherry Crest Adventure Farm. Our stay couldn't have been better. Ray and Sue Kelton of East Brunswick, N.J.
What a wonderful weekend at the Olde Square Inn in Mt. Joy, PA. My husband and I greatly enjoyed our stay and would recommend to anyone needing accommodations in the area. One of the best features is location - it is near (within ½ hour) many of the more popular Lancaster County attractions, yet you feel that when you retire for the evening that you are “getting away from it all” in a small town feel. We stayed here so we could walk to Bube’s Brewery, since we had reservations to eat at the Catacombs on Saturday evening. It was an easy walking distance (about 4-5 blocks) in good weather. The inn itself is a beautiful old building with charm and character. We stayed in the Antebellum room and found it was a good size and quite comfortable. I liked that there were sufficient shelf space to place our toiletries, etc. The whole inn was very clean and well cared for. I liked that there were many places you could relax, including the “great room” in the communal area, a beautiful veranda, a balcony on the 2nd floor available to all patrons, and a lovely backyard area with seating. We felt welcome to make use of any of these areas. We had an opportunity to make use of the pool, which was refreshing on a hot summer afternoon! One suggestion is that if you are planning on using the pool, pack your own towels. The inn does not provide towels for use at the pool. Breakfasts were WONDERFUL! Many compliments to Georgie for her delicious preparations! Having breakfast at 8:30 was a perfect time – not too early, but yet early enough that you can get a start on your day. The innkeepers, Georgie and Paul, are very helpful to their guests in making suggestions on things to do. They are able to steer you to restaurants/attractions in the area that they would personally recommend. Overall, I would definitely stay again and would recommend to family and friends. We are very satisfied customers!
this place is an excellent family spot. rooms were comfortable. activities throughout the day for the kid and adults. feeding calves in the morning, pony rides, tractor trailer ride, hayride, game room, so much to do and so close to lancaster for a good visit.
July 29, 2014 IF a cottage all to your self with an amazing jacuzzi is a hot button, don't hesitate to book the "Carriage House". Clean and hand painted walls and oil paintings add to the experience. As for breakfast, Georgie will make you wish she also made lunch and supper it's that good. Also, has double sinks and a tiled shower that could literally fit the whole family in at once. We toured the main house which is a 1920's Colonial loaded with antiques and history. If you like vintage, your heart will melt!! Thanks for a wonderful stay!!
We loved this stay. The family was so welcoming and friendly. Our kids were in heaven with all the activities and animals. We'd love to return. Very doable 20-25 minute drive into Lancaster and, if you have kids, Dutch Wonderland. Highly recommend this unique experience.
