Great place!!

My friend & I stayed at Brownstone Colonial B&B in Reinholds for 2 nights as a quiet getaway to shopping, sight seeing etc. A really nice place with great hosts, Brenda & Mark. Very clean & comfy with Brenda making us a great breakfast every morning. We would definitely stay here again. And the price was right!!

Restful, refreshing, and delightful!

A stay at the Brownstone Colonial Inn is a charming step-back-in-time with all the comforts of our present day cleverly hidden from sight. The Queen Ann room is lovely and spacious, and it provided my husband and I with much needed rest with its comfortable bed, cozy flannel sheets, and countryside quiet. The bathroom was equally charming with a look of the past yet with our modern-day facilities. Each morning, it was so pleasant to just walk downstairs to a delicious breakfast along with other residents and our amiable hosts.

A quiet and charming B&B

The B&B is located in a pretty countryside away from big streets. The Owners are very kind and attentive. Brenda has a good feeling for one's needs and makes good and helpful suggestions. Our room "The Shaker's Suite" is nicely furnished and decorated. The Bed is also very comfortable. Every morning we had a delicious breakfast made of local products. If we're coming to the area again, we definitely will come back.

A new experience in the Amish Country, A great B&B

Absolutely a keeper and can return here anytime. Innkeepers are like family and great cooks. Rooms are comfortable. Grandpa's Room on the first floor is great. First time at a B&B in the Amish Country and the experience has won us over. The innkeepers are lovely people who love what they do and it shows.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your very kind words! We are glad we "won you over" regarding the bed and breakfast experience! We do indeed love what we do and have been innkeeping here for 19 years and hope to continue until we can no longer keep up!

Wonderful and relaxing weekend.

We had a wonderful and relaxing weekend at the Brownstone Colonial Inn when we were in the area for a wedding and family reunion. Our breakfasts were fabulous, so delicious and we enjoyed our time with Brenda, Mark was away for the weekend so we didn't get to meet him. We will definitely make future reservations and have already recommended Brownstone Colonial Inn to family and friends.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your superb review! We will look forward to a future visit, and hopefully, you'll also be able to meet Mark, my "better half"!

Peaceful, comfortable, pleasant experience!

Beautiful, historic and comfortable home. We rented the suite and enjoyed the evenings in the 2nd room watching movies, reading and relaxing. Plenty to do nearby w/ all the antique stores. Brenda's home cooked breakfasts were hearty and delicious. Getting to know Brenda and Mark made this stay a complete joy. We are already planning another stay at the Brownstone Colonial Inn soon.

Innkeeper Response
So glad you enjoyed your stay, both here at the inn, as well as visiting our many local attractions, especially Adamstown antiquing. We'll look forward to seeing you again soon!

Super lodging & home made breakfasts

We had our anniversary weekend over Memorial Day at the historic home. We enjoyed the landscape & attention to details. Half work & half play this was a great out of town rest bit that a hotel could never offer. Love to find another time to visit and stay.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to review our inn! So glad we could help you celebrate your anniversary with a little country getaway at the Brownstone Colonial Inn!

Had a fabulous stay at Brownstone Colonial Inn. The Inn is out in the country and very peaceful and quiet but yet is close to restaurants, shopping etc. Brenda is a great cook and even was nice enough to share a couple of recipes. We stayed three night but would like to have stayed longer. Don't miss,the Brownstone when traveling thru Pennsylvania.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind review! Yes, we are just a little off the beaten path, and guests have enjoyed this little escape from the traffic and people after a day filled with shopping and touring. Glad I could share the recipes - hope you enjoy preparing them!

Exceptional Experience!

The Brownstone Colonial Inn Bed and Breakfast with hosts Mark and Brenda Miller not only met, but exceeded our expectations. From the warm welcome to the lovely and comfortable accommodations to the scrumptious breakfasts and evening treats, the Millers definitely share graciously the gift of hospitality! In addition, their willingness to provide gluten free breakfast items to meet dietary needs was greatly appreciated. We look forward to returning in the fall and made certain to reserve our room before departing!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind and gracious words! We truly enjoyed having you stay with us and feel like we've made some new friends! We look forward to seeing you in October to celebrate your anniversary!
