The Kings Cottage is a lovely B&B to stay at when in Lancaster, convenient, friendly and wonderful service! Ann was so welcoming and offered suggestions for things to do during our stay. Ann made all of our reservations and provided detailed maps for getting around the area. We had a wonderful time and look forward to staying at Kings Cottage again.

Relaxing stay in Lancaster

We stayed two nights at Kings Cottage Inn in the Contessa room. The room and the inn were immaculate. Janice and Ann are lovely innkeepers and extremely helpful. The breakfasts are heavenly ( we particularly enjoyed the blueberry scones.) The inn is conveniently located, just a short drive to many of the area attractions. I would definitely stay there again next time I visit Lancaster.

Happy with King's Cottage

This is a beautiful big home right in the heart of Lancaster. We did not go to one single Amish buffet or ride a horse and buggy as we have on previous visits. King's Cottage shows another side of a great town with a lot of history.

Great Accommodations

Ann was very accommodating and pleasant. She waited extra for us to arrive, so she could greet us personally. She arranged our FANTASTIC breakfast earlier for us so we could be on time for our Scooter Tour. Would definately go back!

Lovely B & B!

4.6 on May 23, 2015

We absolutely loved King's Cottage B & B. From the minute we were greeted by Janis, we felt at home. The living spaces were lovely and our room was comfortable. We enjoyed our balcony as we relaxed with a glass of wine after a busy day in Lancaster. Our breakfast was scrumptious and plentiful. I would recommend King's Cottage to anyone.

We made an excellent choice for our Lancaster, PA getaway!

Ann was so nice and helpful with marking up maps and recommending things to see and even helping making dinner reservation when we could not get through by cell phone! Never had a 3 course breakfast before! Everything was homemade and delicious with fresh coffee, juice, etc. We really enjoyed our stay at King's Cottage Bed & Breakfast and would highly recommend it to friends and family! Kevin & Sue M.

Romantic, relaxing escape

5 on March 24, 2015

We experienced a wonderfully relaxing stay at King's Cottage B & B during our 44th anniversary vacation....spending all day Thursday in complete relaxation while the snow fell was beyond our expectations. We were also blessed with a wonderful hostess who's warmth and conversation was an added bonus. The couples' massage and covered bridge tour were great suggestions. We look forward to visiting again, and taking in another mud sale weekend.

Looking forward to a return visit

We indulged in the on-site couples massage and it was totally worth it. Ann and Janis went out of their way to work with our schedule and make it happen. They were attentive from the minute we arrived to the minute we left. We would definitely stay again. The entire Inn was meticulous and beautiful.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for sharing your experience at the King's Cottage with future guests. We are glad you enjoyed the couples massage as well as your visit with us. We look forward to seeing you again.
