My wife and I had a really great stay at the Tea Kettle Inn. The hosts were very nice and welcoming and full of useful information about the surrounding area. It is located in a great area close enough to all the Lancaster County sights and sounds.

Patty and Kevin were very friendly and helpful for planning our trip. We stayed there for 3 days and felt very comfortable like a home away from home.

Patty and Kevin are the most amazing hosts! I've stayed here multiple times in the past, and will continue to make it my home away from home any time l visit the Manheim area. Patty makes certain all of her guests sleep well, have fun things to do during the day, and are fed the most amazing breakfasts! Plus, she can accommodate any food restrictions. You can't go wrong with the Tea Kettle Inn!!

I stayed at the Tea Kettle Inn throughtout a 4 month work engagement. I was nice to be in a home environment when I couldn't be at my own and it was so much quieter than a hotel. The breakfast was so good I needed just a light snack for lunch. Highly recommend staying here. Innkeepers very personable.

Patty and Kevin are simply the best as B&B hosts. They are sincerely friendly, and both are enjoyable to talk with. And Patty's breakfasts never disappoint. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the value beats any hotel deal easily. You'll feel at home at the Tea Kettle Inn.

I chose the Tea Kettle Inn because of my wife's fascination with all things tea related, but the inn far exceeded our expectations. The room was really well done and Patty, the hostess, made us feel very welcomed. It certainly would be our choice if we decide to vacation in the Lancaster area agin

My husband and I stayed with Patty and Kevin earlier this month to celebrate our anniversary. We had a wonderful time. The rooms were very nice. Far better than I expected from the internet pictures. We stayed in the Avalon room and our bathroom was small and the sink was in the bedroom section, which was a bit unusual, but overall the room was clean and comfortable. If we stay there again, I'd opt for the Through the Looking Glass Suite. The bedroom is larger, so there is more lounging room if you're looking for that. More importantly, to me, the bathroom is larger. It's in the hallway, not attached to the bedroom, but there is a curtain to pull for privacy that separates the bedroom/bathroom from the hallway and other guests. Breakfast was delicious. We had fruit every morning with tea (or coffee) and juice. Our first morning we had a quiche-like egg & veggie bake with bacon that was wonderful and lemon zucchini bread. Everything was homemade and seconds were encouraged! The next morning Patty treated us to Belgian waffles and cranberry scones. It was obvious that the hosts were willing to go out of their way to make everyone's stay enjoyable. They offered suggestions on where to eat in the area and were very flexible with our schedules, both to check in and for breakfast. It was a thoroughly wonderful experience.
