The Osceola Mill House, c.1766 is a gracious and comfortable stone colonial located in the heart of picturesque Amish country. Come and be lulled by the sounds and sights of the Amish farm community. Set in a tranquil dell with an antique grist mill c.1757 on one side and a miller's house built in the 1860s across the road. One of Lancaster's finest bed and breakfasts, the inn is the perfect place just to relax or take in the many sights and sounds of our beautiful Lancaster county. We are only minutes from the quaint villages of Intercourse, Bird-in-Hand and Strasburg. Only minutes away from Sight & Sound Theatre and the American Music Theatre. All our guests rooms are beautifully and individually decorated. Attention to details abound throughout the inn. Antiques and quality period furniture fill the common rooms and bedrooms. Most guests rooms have fireplaces with queen size beds and private baths. Attention to details abound throughout the inn.

What a great place to visit when you want to get away from the city for a while! Our hosts were gracious, offering advice on where to go, giving us history on the Amish culture, and always asking if there was something we needed. The house is beautifully decorated and it felt very comfortable spending time in the gathering room, reading and watching a movie. The countryside is serene and the people friendly. We woke up to fresh coffee and a deliciously-prepared breakfast of apple french toast, sausage, yogurt with peaches, and homemade pumpkin pie for dessert. I will definitely be back again!

We had a very nice time at this B&B, and would be happy to stay there again. The owners made us feel right at home, and the food was delicious. The location was ideal for driving to places in Lancaster and neighboring counties, and exploring the historic sites in the area.

We had a wonderful and relaxing stay at the Osceola Mill House B&B. The hosts, Pat and Ron Ernst offer a warm welcome and stay ! Their breakfast is delicious. It's in the heartland of the Amish community and close enough to enjoy shopping and entertainment.

This review applies to the "Blue Room". 1. Shower door keeps coming off its tracks. 2. Obvious water damage to floor in bathroom. 3. Bathroom sink is both small and impractical (no place to put anything on it) 3. Room heat can't be controlled(but you can always ask). 4. Hosts are gracious and helpful. Bottom line: you can pay the same or less for nicer accommodations.

Ron made us feel like we'd been friends for years. The Inn is beautiful, the location ideal and his cooking is terrific. We'll be back!

Zurück in Deutschland erinnern wir uns besonders gern an unsere Übernachtungen im Osceola Mill House bei Ron & Pat. Die Zimmer sind liebe- und stilvoll eingerichtett, das Frühstück ist ausgezeichnet und die Atmosphäre ausgesprochen freundlich. Die Lage eignet sich gut, um ein wenig in das Leben der Amishpeople hinein zu schnuppern. Katharina&Georg

We stayed here twice, coming and going from a noisy beach destination. On our return visit, Pat's greeting was "Welcome home." We have surely found our home in Pennsylvania! If you like to see the stars, open your windows at night (the traffic by the house was mostly horse-drawn), or enjoy dessert after breakfast, look no further.
Thanks for your kind words! We so enjoyed your visits while on your way to and from Canada. I feel as if we shared far more than two one-night stays should have enabled: Ocean City, MD., wild ponies, and of course - Downton Abbey! We hope your travels bring you this way again.

I stayed overnight by myself at the end of June as I wanted an opportunity to do just what I wanted, when I wanted and that's what I did! The Inn is beautiful and Patricia and Ron where very attentive and helpful with all my needs. Will definitely stay again and may even bring the hubby next time! Thanks for a great time,Donna N.

We have stayed at Osceola Mill House B&B twice now, and plan on returning many times! Ron and Pat are fabulous people and fantastic hosts. Their breakfasts are to die for, and their knowledge of the local community, culture, and events is invaluable for planning your visit to Amish country. The historic main home pre-dates the Revolutionary War and is absolutely beautiful. It is surrounded by Amish family farms and centrally located with everything you'd want to see very close by. The quiet evenings outside with the thousands of fireflies and sky full of stars is exactly what you need to relax and forget about your big city headaches. We highly recommend Osceola Mill House! Stay in the Carriage House for a nice, quiet get away - a true little home away from home!
Legend has it that this was the "birthing room" for the early occupants, and that legend is reflected in the decorations of the room. Located on the second floor of the main house, with a wonderful view of the morning sunrise, the Rose Room is a peaceful, quiet room with a canopy bed hand made by a local Amish craftsman. The comfortable love seat faces the working fireplace. The in-suite private bath features a traditional tub and shower.
The Green suite is the newest and most versatile addition to the Mill House. The two bedrooms and shared bath on the second floor of the main house can accommodate up to four people. Each bedroom is only steps away from the large bath room on the hall. The rooms can be reserved together or alone. You would be sharing the bath only with your traveling companions or family.
The Blue Room is truly a gracious room, with a grand view of the Old Mill, the bridge over the Pequea Creek, and all to the comings and goings of the Amish buggies. It is located on the second floor of the main house. The room is comfortably furnished with a blue painted canopy bed (hand made by one of our Amish neighbors), and two wing chairs for reading or enjoying the working fireplace. The in-suite bath is quite spacious and features a walk-in shower.
This recently redecorated room on the third floor of the main house celebrates the fact that this house witnessed the struggle for independence and the creation of the United States. It is a cozy room with a painted canopy bed, in-suite bath with a walk-in shower, and comfortable furnishings. The room also has satellite TV and DVD player.
Nestled in the eves of the third floor, this romantic room is a wonderful hideaway. If you can take your eyes off of the gas-log fireplace, you can look out over the neighboring farms and the beautiful sunsets. The room includes a comfortable chair for sitting and reading, a carved oak bed, and an in-suite bath with a large claw footed soaking tub and hand-held shower. Satellite TV with a DVD player to complete your stay.
This three room cottage is just steps away from the main house. It offers privacy and comfort to couples and families. The first floor has a kitchen and living room complete with a gas-log fireplace. The living room includes a comfortable queen size sofa-bed and a love seat that converts to a single bed. There is also satellite TV with a DVD player. The second floor features a queen size brass bed in the bedroom and a whirlpool tub with a hand held shower in the bath. Adult guests are invited to the Main House for breakfast each morning.
