My newlywed wife and I very much enjoyed our stay! The Bed and Breakfast is lovely. They were undergoing some repairs while we were there, but we were never disturbed. Dallas and Pam are just the friendliest people you could ever meet! Dallas introduced me to a local beer, and gave us a gift card for a nearby restaurant. We hope to visit again soon.

My husband & I live in the Phila area and wanted to get away, stay local to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Our visit here by far has been better than any of the many B&B's we have been to. Pam & Dallas hospitality is superior. Pampering and feeling right at home. They have paid special attention to the smallest details to make our stay the best ever. Excellent customer service and décor and cleanliness impeccable! Pam went out of hear way to make and serve a gluten free breakfast that was delicious! 5 STARS! And, enjoy your stay here you made the right choice! Candy & Freddie Pack

My husband and I had a lovely weekend at the BF Hiestand House B&B. I have very high expectations. It was everything a B&B stay should be. I have come to expect clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated B&B's. We enjoyed the special two person shower in the Susquehanna room. Breakfast was delicious. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. There were many niceties: scented soap, chocolates, soft sheets, white noise machine, local info, and more.

We stayed at the B&B this past weekend. It was our first time staying at a B&B and we would most certainly do it again; especially one owned by Dallas and Pam. First and foremost, Pam can cook the heck out of some food!!! Both our meals were top notch. Her husband Dallas was so helpful in planing day trips and restaurants to visit. The rooms were very clean, the house was beautiful and had great history. Their BIG 120 pound lab Quincy was friendly and sweet. I would rate the whole experience a 10 of 10. They made B&B fans of us! Thanks for making our anniversary trip a great experience!!
Thank you so very much for your kind words! We really enjoyed meeting you and are so happy your first B&B experience was a good one. B&B's are very diverse and are a "better way to stay"! Glad you want to try another some day!

My husband and I were looking for a special place to stay on our wedding night before we left for our honeymoon. I searched many local B&B's and couldn't find what we were looking for until I came up B. F. Hiestand. We were able to book the Cannon Cottage, which gave us the privacy and comfort we were looking for. Pam and Dallas were wonderful hosts, we had a very late check-in and they were super accommodating and we had the option to eat our delicious breakfast in the privacy of our cottage which was perfect! The cottage was well appointed and had the most comfortable bed and sheets. The spa shower, tub and heated floor were such a nice treat as well! Pam was so gracious and gave us a special gift when we left, she was so sweet! We had a such wonderful stay at B.F. Hiestand and will always cherish the time that we spent there! If you are looking for a welcoming, inviting and beautiful place to stay while in Lancaster country, this is it!

A friend and I stayed in the Cannon Cottage for 3 nights. Monday, March 25th and it was lovely. The bed was so comfortable, the whirlpool so relaxing and the breakfast was so very good. The innkeepers made you feel as if you were family and were so helpful with suggestions on what to do, etc. The high point was Quincy, the family's pet fetching the morning newspaper. This is my 3rd trip to this B&B and already planning to visit again in June or July.

A beautiful home with wonderful, helpful hosts. The house was warmly decorated, clean, and welcoming. The sheets, towels, and rainforest shower were amazing. Pam's breakfasts were delicious and satisfying. The location provided easy access to a winery, candy factory, and several impressive antique shops, as well as other historical homes to visit. We definitely plan to visit again!

I arrived with my friend on Monday, March 25th to spend 4 days shopping, relaxing and just to have a great time. We both enjoyed spending some time talking to Pam and Dallas. This has been my third trip to the B&B and I they both make you feel like you are family. After a wonderful breakfast, Quincy would fetch the newspaper at the end of the driveway and bring it back to Dallas.. He is a great addition to the B&B also. We are already planning another trip and can't wait to see the Fritz Family. Love them all. Peggy

We stayed at the B.F Hiestand House B & B this past weekend - in the Vanderslice Suite. The house was totally charming. Beautifully appointed and decorated as if walking back into the era. Pam, Dallas and Quincy were excellent hosts. We most definitely will stop by for a stay again in the future.
