On the National Historic Register, the Churchtown Inn is a beautiful mansion graced with comfortable elegance. Our location in the middle the most beautiful farmland in Lancaster County provides breathtaking views that may be enjoyed from our flower garden or from our glass-enclosed, stone-floor garden room. Enjoy evening tea and sherry in our victorian double parlors, snuggle up with a book in our cozy den, bike or walk through the glorious backroads, or sit quietly by our garden fountain. Churcthown Inn provides ample space to get away from it all with your innkeepers always nearby, ready to help you learn about their Amish and Mennonite neighbors and other area attractions. On many evenings, the Inn provides guests with the one-of-a-kind experience of dinner in an Amish or Mennonite home. Wake to the aromas of a hearty breakfast and the sounds of Amish buggies clip-clopping past the Inn. All rooms feature private baths, queen-sized beds dressed in beautiful handmade Amish quilts, and wondeful antiques. All Amish attractions, antique areas, crafts, hot air ballooning, gliding, rafting, microbrewery, museums, ghost tours, buggy rides, great food, dinner with Amish families, and farmers markets are nearby. Tourist and restaurant information in all rooms.
Large guest room on the first floor with a king and two single beds. Private bath, TV, seasonal a/c, propane fireplace, internet access, private entrance and parking. Rate based on double occupancy. Additional guests $15.00/person.

The inn keepers were very friendly and hospitable. The rooms in the cottage we rented were very neat and had plenty of linens. The kitchen had everything we needed for the meals we cooked there. The bed had huge people-shaped depressions and was like sleeping on bricks. Probably the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept on. The bedroom also lacked curtains - there were just some flimsy sheers, so no privacy or light blocking capability. I can't rate dining because we didn't eat with them this time. The last time we ate with them it was really average. Not bad, but nothing to write home about. It wasn't a bad experience, (except for my lack of sleep). I would consider staying with them again if my first B & B choice was not available, but probably not at the cottage (the bed ruined an otherwise lovely little cottage for me....can't have a good vacation on little to no sleep).

We have stayed at the Churchtown Inn's Covered Bridge cottage a few times. Each and every time it has been a wonderful experience. It is close to everything but also close to nothing. We have stayed here in both summer and winter. The setting is beautiful - in a park with a covered bridge in your yard. We prefer the winter stays since there are less people in the area around the cottage, however, the summer allows you to enjoy the surroundings. Pets are welcome which is very important to us. Grocery shopping is close by in a 'fun to shop in' store called Good's. The bed & breakfast is located about a mile up the road. We don't get breakfast but that is our preference. The cottage has a full kitchen with a microwave that sings "oh Susannah". How special is that? The innkeepers are extremely friendly. It is the perfect place to stay where you are pretty much away from everything but close to the little towns in this area.

We have stayed at this charming Inn twice in the last month , so I guess you would assume we loved it. We do! Both rooms we reserved were charming and quaint, with vintage décor and cozy amish quilts. The Innkeepers , Jim and Chris, are so welcoming ....it feels like your staying with family. Chris keeps a cookie jar of homemade cookies for guests and a fridge full of beverages too. They also arranged a memorable dinner at an Amish Family Farm. What a wonderful evening. Chris prepares a wonderful, hearty breakfast each morning with a unique main course and always homemade granola...It's yummy. We hope to return soon for another getaway at the Churchtown.

Charming B&B. Lovely and hospitable Inn keepers. Breakfast was amazing. Little Grace added a warm touch to the cozy environment. The room was small, but really nice, however, It was bit hard to adjust the temperature in the room. It was cold at first, then got really hot after we turned the heat on, and I finally just turned it off for the night.

Wonderful and light, this guest favorite has just the right touch of lemony goodness counterbalanced by the sweetness of local wild strawberry that crowns this delicious dish!
