About

Carriage Corner B&B is the perfect introduction to the original concept of Bed and Breakfast: affordable lodging, genuine hospitality, delicious breakfasts and immaculate housekeeping. With tasteful handcrafted touches of folk-art, the B&B offers a relaxing country atmosphere; situated in the hub of Lancaster County's beautiful farmland and tourist area. Gordon is willing to share his knowledge and love of the area and assists in planning itineraries. He is also at times able to arrange dinners with Amish friends. Resources on the area are provided in guest rooms as well as in the common room where one can curl up with a steeping cup of tea and read about the Amish lifestyle in front of a gas log stove. Wake up and let the wafting aroma of freshly brewed coffee lure you to our breakfast table. Inn specialties might include Oatmeal Pancakes, fruit bread cream cheese french toast, or a "Lancaster County Omelet", baked oatmeal and muffins.

A surprisevweekend

As long time B&B patrons, we were totally surprised with our recent stay with Gordon and Gwen. Upon arriving, we found out that the Prime Minister of Denmark, with his wife and daughter were staying at the B&B for two nights. With heavy Secret Service security, it became a very different stay. Our host looked after us well, rooms were immaculate, and breakfasts were scrumptious. All in all a wonderful time was had by all. Many grand conversations were held and friendships made.

What a pleasant surprise

5 on July 30, 2016

Talk about a place that under-promises but over-delivers! Their web site did not nearly capture the perfection of this Amish Country Bed and Breakfast. The owner, host, travel advisor, and breakfast cook, Gordon, was perfect in all of these areas. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left he was gracious and accommodating. If you're even considering this Inn, reserve a room if it's available for your travel dates. Stop looking at other locations. This will be your "home away from home". Thanks Gordon - and Gwen - for making our visit beyond pleasant!

Innkeeper Response
This has just been such a wonderful and delightful season in regard to all those who have come our way. We appreciate each of you sincerely and all that you have contributed to the "spirit" of the B&B, your sharing around the breakfast table in the context of community --- it's just all been so encouraging to Gwen and me and we thank you for the privilege of serving you!

About the innkeepers

Gordon, with a background in pastoral ministry, has long desired to have a home open to others and enjoys extending hospitality. Gwen is CEO of Friendship Community that serves people with disabilities and thus is removed from the day to day running of the B&B. However, her decorative skills have touched the B&B.

Signature Dish

Carriage Corner Oatmeal Pancakes
One of the frequently asked for recipees is that of our Oatmeal Pancakes which are often served with a compliment of other kinds of Pancakes on Saturday morning. Made with Long Cooking and Oats and Buttermilk and served with Vermont Maple syrup and bacon or local sausage, it's the perfect start for exploration in the Amish Farmland!
