Finishes in house are exactly right

3.8 on May 12, 2016

The house retains its 1760's charm, but the finishes and décor keep your surroundings comfortable. Den with manly décor is a nice change from typical B&B dens. Driveway entrance is on a curve with no 'Hidden Driveway' sign. There is a sign on up the street for a drive that is far less dangerous. Leaving the property is a bit of an adventure.

Great B&B

We loved staying here. It is quiet and the owners were so friendly. We'll definitely stay here again.

Home away from home

Many things make a stay at Osceola Mill House feel like home away from home...from the wonderful owners/innkeepers, the scrumptious hand made breakfasts every morning (with dessert), the comfortable well apportioned guest rooms and the fantastic location within Lancaster County Pennsylvania Dutch country. We look forward to ur visits every year and would stay no where else.

Hidden gem surrounded by picturesque Amish farms...

This was a delightful place to spend the weekend. I only wish I could have stayed longer. Pat & Rob, the B&B hosts, were very gracious and helpful with local information on what to see and do. The B&B is ideally located and very close to the surrounding towns. I look forward to staying here again the next time I am in this area.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for your kind words. We agree that our location is just about perfect - close enough to all of the local attractions, but off the beaten path and tucked in among our Amish neighbors. The best of both worlds!

A Hidden Gem

Due to the nearby bridge being rebuilt, The Osceola Mill House B&B is a little hard to find but the solitude is well worth it. A beautiful old building with the excellent hosts Ron & Pat making sure your stay is wonderful.

Beautiful Bed and Breakfast stay!

My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful bed and breakfast. Helpful, friendly but not intrusive hosts who looked after us and provided lots of tips and recommended things to do during our visit. Ron and Pat even catered especially for me for breakfast due to some very difficult dietary requirements which was greatly appreciated. We would definitely recommend anyone visiting Lancaster County to stay here!

Pleasant stay
