What an amazing place!

We were duly impressed with Kimmell House and with its owners, Bonnie and Dave Harvey. They are inviting conversationalists who are interested in making your stay most enjoyable. The house is historically accurate in its décor and renovations.The bedrooms with ensuite baths were comfortable and clean. The hot breakfasts each morning were tasty and beautifully presented in the colonial diningroom with candle light. This is the perfect location from which to explore Lancaster County.


Excellent

My son and I stayed at the Kimmell House from August 29 thru September 2nd and I must say it was the most wonderful stay a person could have a wonderful host and hostess innkeepers Bonnie and Dave made us feel so welcome and at home. They made us feel like family. I have never been to a bed and breakfast before and it was the best. Excellent courteous service,great breakfast and centrally located to all the attractions that you want to see. I recommend this bed and breakfast to everyone. The rooms are so quaint and spacious,beautifully designed and decorated. We stayed in the Hunt room which is one of the largest rooms and has a nice deep tub. The grounds are so well maintained and the garden is beautiful. I will make this my bed and breakfast whenever I am in Lancaster county,keep up the good work Bonnie and Dave.


Feeling Great ...

... this is all because of the the WONDERFUL hospitality that the InnKeepers at Kimmell House provided. Dave and Bonnie were so welcoming, warm-hearted and caring. That made me and my Mother feel right at home. My mother has never been to a B&B so I wanted to treat her. We stayed in the Hunt Room, which is very spacious with an elevated queen bed and sleigh twin bed. Beautiful architecture, and Bonnie did all the painting and decorations herself. It feels like stepping back in the 1700s there. WE LOVED our stay. From the time we checked in on Thursday 29th till this morning (2nd) we felt pampered and loved. The breakfast every morning was superb. Always wonderful surprises. With my big appetite they made sure I was well fed, lol. They offered suggestions on day trips and restaurants and even the little things we loved - like little chocolate candies on our bed sometimes. But besides all of that great stuff, we had nice conversations and laughed together. So it never felt like a guest - innkeeper relationship, but more like friends. We were so sad to leave, but will definitely recommend Kimmell House to friends and family. We are planning to visit Bonnie and Dave again next year in the spring or fall. Thank you both for making us feel welcomed and part of the family. We miss you two already. André and Donna

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Kimmell House. The food was delicious!! We enjoyed The Hunt room. This was our first time staying in a B & B. Bonnie & Dave made us feel so welcome.


Outstanding B&B

4.0 on October 14, 2011

What a beautiful B&B!!! Rooms are gorgeous and the hosts treat you like family. We hated to leave. Bonnie is an outstanding cook and went out of her way to accommodate my gluten allergy. We have never stayed anywhere that we felt so welcome. Can't wait to go back.
