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.

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.

We had our wedding party here in February last weekend (21st - 23rd), and had family fly in from around the world to celebrate in small style with us. We did the Amish wedding feast on Friday night, and the murder mystery night on Saturday. Chris & Jim made the entire weekend so memorable, even going as far as to get us a wedding cake. All out guests raved about it and had a blast! I wouldn't hesitate to ever recommend this place to anyone.

Chris and Jim are great hosts who go beyond expectations to make guest feel at home and comfortable. The breakfasts were wonderful and they were able to accomodate our gluten-free requests with delicious options. Don't miss the opportunity to visit an Amish family home for a group dinner.

This truly is the best bed & breakfast I've ever had the privilege to stay! Jim & Chris are the warmest, most personable people. From the moment you walk in & are greeted by Miss Gracie, one feels completely welcomed! Jim & Chris share their knowledge of the area with great enthusiasm. Truly a wonderful B&B!

I have stayed at the Churchtown Inn for other events in the past and have always loved it there. My husband and I recently stayed there for our honeymoon and the new owners were absolutely the sweetest ever. In fact we enjoyed our stay so much we extended from one night to two. The room was cozy the breakfast delicious and service above and beyond. We so enjoyed getting to know Jim each morning at breakfast. It was like being among family. They even let us switch our room after it was booked. We are planning on staying for Valentine's day as well and I may even surprise my husband for his Birthday. We will be staying again and most likely staying for our anniversary next year. I would recommend the Chir brown In. To anyone wanting a nice affordable place to stay in Lancaster. It's close to everything but yet far enough away to give a retreat feeling to your stay. Seriously stay here. You will call in love with it just as my husband and I have. Judith M. McCarty

We were lucky enough to stay at the Covered Bridge Cottage last weekend. I have to say that the hosts were the most accommodating I have ever encountered. They not only allowed an early check in so that I could get a little sleep but they also provided a goody bag of snacks so I would be able to maximize my snooze time before heading out that night! The cottage was beautiful as was the surrounding park. We did have a time getting the temperature regulated in the cottage but it is construction from the 1700's so that was not entirely unexpected. Breakfast both mornings was very tasty. Hopefully we will be able to stay again soon. Thank you for a fantastic mini-vacation! Kim & Christopher

Louisianna Lemon Creme Toast
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!
