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.

Weekend Getaway Stay

4.8 on July 20, 2016

We love traveling to Lancaster when the opportunity presents itself, and last weekend was just one of those times. As I was researching a place to stay, I came upon the Carriage Corner B&B. I noticed all the great reviews, so decided this is where I would book our stay...WOW! I can honestly say, this is such a nice place! There was not one thing that I could find that was a "negative" about this place! We absolutely loved our stay at this B&B!!! Not only is it nestled in a super nice area, but it's VERY clean and the owners are very nice & very accommodating. I can honestly give this place 10 stars, it's THAT nice! Also, if you're unfamiliar with the area, no fear, Gordon will sit down and map out places for you to visit...there is a lot to see & do here! I will end with this: You can always tell when an owner is proud of their B&B by how it's cared for, and this place is very well cared for...you will not be disappointed!


The perfect getaway

My boyfriend and I just had the good fortune of spending a night at the Carriage Corner Bed and Breakfast. Not only was out host, Gordon, wildly accommodating and knowledgable about the area, but he served the most outstanding home made breakfast. We were truly blown away by the amount of food he was able to prepare. If you need a relaxing getaway in a charming little area, this Bed and Breakfast should be the first on your list. The rooms are peppered with Amish history and memorabilia, so you are completely immersed in your vacation. We stayed in the Pinapple Room, which felt private, charming, and cozy. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. If we are ever in the area again, we will definitely be back!


Excellent Experience

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
