A wonderful holiday at the harvest moon

5 on January 07, 2016

My husband and I spent two nights at this establishment for new years eve and to celebrate our anniversary and we had a great time. The house is very beautiful and well kept. We stayed in the deluxe suite room that has 2 levels (main floor bedroom with king bed and second floor sitting area and bath room) and it was very cozy and spacious. For new years eve they had a great murder mystery themed event which was lots of fun. The next morning we had a delicious brunch (Carl is an amazing cook and host). Carl was very friendly and helpful during our stay and even helped us figure out what to do in the area. I would also recommend getting a massage during your stay. We had the pleasure of getting a couples massage and it was amazing. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are ever in the mood for a nice little getaway, delicious food, and great hospitality. There is lots to see and do in Lancaster! We will definitely be back soon!


Wonderful experience

Our first time in Pennsylvania. Harvest Moon B&B is a charming house in a great location. It's a quiet town and close to many places for day-tripping in Lancaster County. Carl was a great host. He provided great information for local activities. The rooms were charming and very clean. We stayed in the Gala, and the kids loved the upstairs room.

We found Harvest Moon via a LivingSocial deal and were very pleased. We stayed in th e Braeburn room which was very comfortable - a plush king bed with an upstairs living room and HUGE bathroom with jacuzzi tub, The owner Carl is very informative and friendly, we enjoyed just chatting with him - plus he makes fabulous breakfasts and cookies to enjoy daily.

A Charming weekend

We LOVED our stay at the Harvest Moon. It's charm matched the beauty and quaint feel of Lancaster. Carl not only fed us exquisite food, beyond anything we had hoped for (do NOT pass up his pistachio muffins, or cranberry French Toast) but he also gave us great info concerning the area. He lead us to fine dining, shopping, and a delightful small town theater. Our November based on a wedding stay was a bit cool. We hope to come back in warmer weather or in time for fall colors. When we do, we'll stay here again! The Nielsen's from Utah

New Year's Eve Murder Mystery

5 on January 02, 2013

Although we were unable to stay at the Harvest Moon (they were booked up!!), we participated in the NYE Murder Mystery. I used one of the guest rooms for a restroom. The decor is so charming and perfect for an old, quaint, Lancaster County B&B. The front parlor was decorated impeccably with holiday items from years past. The bubble lights on the Christmas tree took me back to my childhood. Carl (the owner/chef/cleaning person) is fabulous and extremely helpful. He even called other hotels to try to find us a place to stay. He recommended great restaurants for dinner and was all around extremely welcoming. His love of being an owner/chef shines through in everything he does. The strawberry french toast for breakfast was AMAZING!!!


Best place to stay on an Amish vacation !

5 on August 21, 2012

We wanted to stay near the real backroads in Amish community. There were touristy motels nearby but that would feel less welcoming. The Harvest Moon feels like a house not a business. The front entry is into a sitting space next to a Main Street view that extends into the dining space with three individual tables for guests to have an extremely delectable breakfast ! Best place I've stayed in many years having been to homes in Mexico & Europe !


I have visited the Harvest Moon BB three times

5 on June 08, 2012

My wife and I have been to the Harvest Moon on three separate occasions. On each visit we have participated in a pre-planned weekend, two wine and cheese tours and an Italian cooking weekend. The planned weekends are just great! Well planned, fun and the right amount of time to relax. If you are looking for a great weekend experience you will really enjoy a wine a cheese weekend with Karl. The weekend will include tours of cheese farms and wineries throughout the area. I guarantee you will learn something and remember to take notes for the quiz at dinner.


Great Bed and Breakfast

Harvest Moon was a wonderful and inviting Bed and Breakfast. My sister took me as a birthday present and we did the "Bella Luna Weekend" . It was wonderful. Besides Carl and Marlies genuinly nice people and great Inn keepers Carl is a wonderful chef and we had so much fun cooking and learning wonderful new recipes. Breakfast was delicous every morning. I can't wait to take my husband to Harvest Moon.
