My family and I gave stayed with Gerry and Dave twice and they are such a lovely couple. Giving such high service and standards of rooms. If we ever go again we would not think of staying any where else. You have treats around every corner of homemade cookies and candy a glass of free sherry on the evening. Full run of the house with other guests. So after a days exploring or taking in the beautiful area you can come back make a cup of coffee or tea and sit in the lounge or garden and relax wonderful!!!

I stumbled on the Lancaster B&B when searching online for a place to stay for our mother/daughter weekend. What a happy stumble! I found the B&B to be a wonderful place to stay. Clean, comfortable and welcoming. Brad and Keith were excellent hosts and the food was outstanding. Snacks were available at all times. We had a wonderful weekend and I can't wait to go back!

My girlfriend took me to Lancaster for my 50th birthday. That was all I knew. Expecting a simple hotel, I was astonished to see this beautiful early 1900's Bed & Breakfast. We stayed in the upstairs of the cottage in the Fennel room. The room was spacious and very clean. The bed was very comfortable. The ground were beautifully landscaped and the main house's decor was nothing short of stunning. The choice of color was done perfectly. The home has so much history, I just fell in love with the moldings and carved trim. But, the best part of the whole experience, were the caretakers Kieth and Brad. Kieth was very informing and very gracious. Going over and beyond to make our experience a great one. Brad was very entertaining and personable. You can tell from the moment you meet them, they love what they do and their guests. The breakfast just blew me away. Brad's culinary skills come through with flying colors. We were served an asparagus and peas quiche that was so delicious, that we raved about it all day. From beginning to end, this was an outstanding stay, and I am telling everyone about it and I will definitely be back.
Wow! What a kind review! It was so wonderful to meet and chat with you guys. We were honored that you chose to stay with us for your birthday celebration. We really do love what we do, but it is because of gracious guests like you. Remember that we are happy to extend a returning guest discount, so we'd be thrilled to help celebrate 51! All the best to you both, Keith and Brad

I was overwhelmed by the place and hospitality. Keith and Brad are wonderful and served an outstanding breakfast in the morning. Lancaster city/downtown only a couple of minutes ago, same for the Amish experiences. I would definitely stay again at The Lancaster B&B.

Our Daily Special Breakfast
Every breakfast is a distinctive amenity of our Lancaster accommodations at the Lancaster. Each breakfast is freshly served at individual intimate tables in our dining room. We can also arrange seating for groups. Breakfast is continuously available from 8:30-10 AM, so it's okay to sleep in a little; we'll make more! Coffee and tea are available throughout the day. We can also easily accommodate business travelers for timely appointments and guests who need to make an early departure. That most important meal of the day begins with a generous selection of coffee, tea, and juices. Fresh seasonal cut fruit is available daily. Homebaked muffins or breads are often on the menu as well. The wide variety of Lancaster County Farmers’ Markets, Amish Farmers' produce stands and orchards provide many of the favorite ingredients for our daily entrees. Most breakfasts include a meat side dish, such our own homemade turkey or chicken sausage, but we are always sensitive to the needs of our vegetarian guests, and are happy to offer a meat substitute. Main courses may be Brad's tremendous stuffed Challah French toast, Chicken and Waffles like you've never had (!) or a beautiful artisan quiche. When Brad is cooking you are welcome to share first hand in the process, but remember: he might put you to work! Please let us know ahead of time if you may require attention to food allergies or dietary concerns. We are happy to oblige.
The 4th Annual AQS "QuiltWeek" (American Quilter's Society) show in Lancaster, PA is scheduled for March 12 - 15, 2014. We are located just 1.2 miles (a 20 minute walk!) from the Lancaster County Convention Center, and bus transportation runs regularly from our inn into town. Why not stay with us and enjoy the amenities of a bed and breakfast while enjoying the show? Book a two night stay and take 10% off the room rate or stay 3 or more nights and take 20% off the rate. There are many many quilt shops and fabric stores to enjoy besides the convention floor. Please mention this special when making your reservation for discount to apply.
