Very relaxing

5 on April 20, 2016

Had a lovely two night stay in the countryside...just what we were looking for. Both Brenda and Mark were wonderful hosts. Brenda is an exceptional cook and served us fresh made breakfast each morning....nothing like those horrible buffets at the hotels.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to review our inn! Your words "fresh made breakfast each morning" denotes the local pork and brown eggs from our neighboring farms, as well as fresh fruits and vegetables from our own garden, trees and berry plants!


A Home away from Home

5 on April 19, 2016

The Brownstone Inn was a home away from home for my family. It was our first trip to a B & B with our children and they enjoyed their stay. The Innkeepers, Brenda and Mark are excellent hosts, they helped our kids to be comfortable there. Our suite was exceptionally clean and quiet. Brenda cooks fantastic breakfasts. I would definitely recommend the Inn to friends and family.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words! I still am amazed that your daughter was able to put together our most difficult puzzle, which we adults have not been able to figure out! Our policy for accommodating young children is such that "well-behaved children age 5 and older are welcome"! Yours were amazingly quiet!


Comfortable and Authentic B&B!

5 on February 15, 2016

This is as good as it gets as far as bed and breakfast inns go! Brenda and Mark have perfected the perfect blend of hospitality, coziness, and charm to make for a wonderful experience. We spent the Valentine's Day weekend here, and could not have asked for a better time. The inn itself is itself a well-preserved step back in time. My partner and I had a small room on the second floor. It was the perfect size, and was replete with a sleigh bed and antique, heirloom furnishings. The mattress was a dream to sleep on, and the bedding was clean and warm. The ensuite bathroom was clean, and the inn provides linens and some small additions like bottled water and mint chocolates. There is also wifi for those that need to stay connected. In addition, there is a common room available to all guests that has a TV, a coffee/tea station, and some boardgames for personal use. The homemade breakfasts are worth being up and adam by breakfast time. Brenda is a wonderful cook, and her recipes exude a warmth that made us want to return for seconds. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast if you are visiting Lancaster County!

Innkeeper Response

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!!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for submitting an online review! I love cooking and baking, and hopefully that shows in the breakfasts I whip up the mornings! We're glad we could provide the getaway you were looking for!


Restful, refreshing, and delightful!

4.6 on November 12, 2015

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.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to review our inn! We take much pride in the painstaking renovations, always with the goal in mind of restoring our sandstone farmhouse to its 18th century charm! We're glad you've noticed and appreciated those touches!

Differnt and great breakfasts after good nights


A quiet and charming B&B

5 on October 24, 2015

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.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words! One of my favorite things about running our bed and breakfast is connecting with our guests and discovering what they most like to see and do in the area, which is rich in culture, history, theatre and shopping!


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

5 on September 18, 2015

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.

5 on August 28, 2015

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!

4.0 on August 25, 2015

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!
