Our turn-of-the-Century home recalls the rural life a century ago. A wrap around porch and quiet gazebo provide places to relax, read or watch the Amish buggies ride by. Each room has a 20" cabled TV for your enjoyment. Our small orchard provides fruit for the breakfast table. We attempt to maintain a healthy, chemical-free environment for all our guests including those who have allergy and asthma conditions, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity or Environmental Illness.
One advantage of Lancaster County is its four seasons. Each season is unique and has its own set of holidays and celebrations. This second floor guest room has a queen bed that will make your stay comfortable and relaxing. Enjoy the beauty of our small orchard and garden fountain from your room. Adding to the interest of this room is a full private bath that is accessed through huge chestnut doors which formerly enclosed an indoor 'water closet'.
A quilt is a work of art and a labor of love. In this warm second floor guest room, you will find beautiful examples of quilts from the Amish and Mennonite communities as well as from Thailand. This guest room features a queen bed with a private powder room. The Quilt room has a full private bath located outside the room for the exclusive use of guests in this room. After a busy day visiting the areas many attractions, you can relax and enjoy the view from the private balcony overlooking the Gazebo.
In memory of our Peace Corps experience, we gave this room the ancient name for Thailand. This spacious second floor guest room has a comfy king bed and a full private shower bath. An all-season fireplace gives a romantic accent to the room. The mosquito net canopy along with memorabilia and items we collected from our time in Southeast Asia accent this interesting and cozy guest room.
This European size guest room overlooks our small orchard and a garden fountain surrounded by flowers of the season. Enjoy the beauty of the Wisteria bush cascading over the Pergola. The bright and airy room features a queen bed, a private bathroom with shower stall, cabled TV and a comfy reading area.

This house is beautiful, quiet, comfortable and is right in the middle of Amish farmland. The hosts are friendly and accommodating. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are visiting Lancaster. It's in a good location, within 15 minutes of just about every place we visit out here.

After 2 weeks travelling in the USA, sleeping in good H hotels, the time in the Walnut Lawn B&B was Mike being at home with your family. Nice rooms and a very delicious home made breakfast is more than expected. But the two Innkeepers were like your own parents, doing for you, all that you need. Great stay for the whole family.

I really liked the location. the house itself and surrounding areas are beautifully maintained - much nicer than staying in Lancaster itself. I thought I had booked small room but it was more than adequate and the furnishings were appropriate to the feel of the property which is nice. Even though we were early we were able to drop bags and were given a friendly welcome and some helpful advice about where to go. Where this place really scores is the friendliness of the hosts, the atmosphere they create and above all the breakfast. This is eaten "family style", is totally delicious and will make it virtually impossible to be able to eat lunch.

My husband and I spent 2 nights in the Garden Room in celebration of our 19th wedding anniversary. It was a little noisy with the traffic, but running the air conditioner helped. We are not fond of soft mattresses and this one was very soft. Breakfast was amazing both days. We at family style with 3 other couples. The table settings were lovely. Tom & Sarah were just wonderful. They each sat at the ends of the table listening to our stories and sharing their own. The day that we were leaving, everyone in the Inn was leaving as well. We were able to get a peek into the other rooms. They are all so different and have their own uniqueness. We would certainly choose to return here again in a heartbeat.

A true experience! We learned more about the Amish at the breakfast table then we learned at the buggy ride afterwards. The breakfast was like the breakfasts you get at the Ritz Carlton but this was home made from scratch. Loved it.

The traffic was a little noisy but fine once we closed the windows. The food was amazing and the inkeepers went above and beyond to make sure that everything was perfect.
