Wonderful weekend in PA

5 on February 19, 2014

My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Columbian B&B. We checked in on Valentines Day and met the owner Karen, who showed us the inn and our room. I had requested a gift basket of Wine and Cheese for us to enjoy, and the one that Karen put together was great, filled with yummy cheese and a great local wine. There were some sweet extras in their too! After returning for the evening we tried out the Hot Tub which we found very relaxing and refreshing. Our breakfasts each morning were delicious and we found the Inn convenient to the attractions we were visiting in the area. It is not centrally located in PA Dutch country, but halfway between York and Lancaster, which suited us great! Columbia itself is a cute little town with a few attractions and many shops. On Sunday morning, my girlfriend got a massage from Karen at the Inn which she is still raving about days later. We look forward to our next visit!


We will never use a traditional hotel again

We stayed at the Columbian Inn Bed and Breakfast and it was delightful. We were visiting family for Thanksgiving so did not eat at the Inn but the service, room and hospitality were excellent. There are several nice little things in the room that were a treat. There are two fluffy bath robes in the bathroom and a complimentary wine sampler with two glasses in the room. The price was great and we are spoiled by the experience. Will never stay in a regular hotel again.

Nice lodgings in an interesting and historic Pennsylvania town.Very comfortable rooms well furnished and in top shape.Service friendly but not intrusive. Breakfast OK with no options offered for those who prefer food on the plain side.


Beautiful Facility

Lovely post-colonial building. Very well appointed. Karen is very easy to work with. I had a few changes to make. Made a simple request and fixed with no problem. I also needed early check. Again - No problem. Easy check in. Awesome breakfast. Very nice time. Will stay again.


Great Value with Fantastic Breakfast
