Carriage Corner B&B

3705 E Newport Road , Intercourse, PA 17534 USA (Show map)

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.

What A Wonderful Place To Stay

This was my 3rd visit to Carriage Corner. It is a warm, welcoming place that feels like home. Gordon is a lovely man who is very knowledgeable about the area and its people. Breakfast is included and they are very good (way better than a hotel - check out the website for the recipes). This is the only place I will stay when in the area.


Wonderful

Carriage Corner is a fantastic place to stay. Gordon is friendly and knowledgeable and goes out of his way to make sure you experience is what you want it to be. Will be going back again when my sister comes for a visit. I will be recommending the Carriage Corner to all my friends. Sincerely Patricia Hoffer


Great stay

Unfortunately my husband and I could only spend one night at the Carriage Corner on our way back home. Would have loved to have stayed longer. Host was wonderful and the breakfast was great. Room was quiet and guests were friendly.


God's peace at the Corner

Every time my wife and I stay at this B&B, we sense a peaceful environment and a resting spirit. We experience a wonderful sense of God's peace in this house.


Perfect getaway for R&R

4.8 on April 08, 2016

The B&B is perfectly located in Intercourse. You could even walk into town. The atmosphere is very calming and charming. Gordon is the perfect host. He gave me a lot of tips on what to do and where to eat. He also knows a lot about the history of this area. I'll definitely stay here again!


GREAT VALUE

HAVE STAYED HERE MANY TIMES. PEACEFUL STAY, GREAT FOOD,GREAT HOST!


Too good to be true

5 on April 06, 2016

We were pleasantly surprised. A quiet, clean, and heavenly place. Our week-end was quite restful. Our host, Gordon, went all out with those 'scrumptious' breakfast meals. In addition, he provided us with all the information needed to make our stay in Pennsylvania a never-to-be-forgotten one. Our first time, and we will certainly return.

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.
