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.

My husband picked this location for a weekend getaway. What a great little bed and breakfast!! It's located a tad off the beaten path however, outlets and restaurants were very accessible and a quick drive. We stayed in the Four Seasons room that was absolutely charming, it was clean the bathroom was spacious and seemed newly renovated. Tom & Sarah were wonderful hosts. I recently found out I had a gluten allergy and let Tom know. I was wonderfully surprised at breakfast when Sarah presented gluten free pancakes served with eggs and bacon. Tom and Sarah do a great job at engaging you and anyone else staying there. My husband and I will be back.

What a wonderful birthday get-away! Our Four Seasons room was clean, the bed comfortable and the sheets heavenly. The breakfasts were delicious and displayed beautifully. We just loved talking with Tom & Sarah. When we got home, we missed being there for those special morning talks. We will definitely go there again!
