A wonderful experience.

Carol and Rowland were wonderful hosts. Easily accessible from the PA Turnpike, the Quill Haven Country Inn provided clean, nicely decorated rooms that made for a very pleasant three nights stay. Each morning they provided us with a delicious hot breakfast and some nice conversation. We also enjoyed two of the local places of interest. The Flight93 Memorial Sight in Shanksville and the Quecreek Mine Rescue Site. If a guest would rather stay in, there is cable TV and a DVD player in the room. A very nice common room is also available. If you would like, you can walk the grounds and see their goats and chickens! We will definitely be going back.


Best B&B Experience EVER

5 on June 11, 2015

Stayed here for only a night, but we were able to chat with the owners and play with the goats, yes they have goats. The rooms are spacious and really well decorated. It is definitely not the hotel experience, if you want that I think there are some shady places down the road. If you want a place that has character and makes you smile, this is the place to go.


great weekend

family wedding retreat

Rental the whole for family weekend together to celebrate my son's wedding. The Breakfasts were the best and the hostess was very accommodating to special needs. Grandparents enjoyed having a room with bath on the first floor so they didn't have to do stairs or elevators. Everyone enjoyed the porch for a time of unwinding from the busy days while the younger people enjoyed the hot tub on the back deck. It was a wonderful weekend to remember.


Perfect for relaxing and sightseeing!

We stayed several nights the 2nd week in Oct. The inn is a short distance away from the Frank Lloyd Wright homes of Falling Water and Kentuck Knob. Also, the Flight 93 National memorial is close. The inn is conveniently located off the PA turnpike with numerous nearby restaurants and other tourist attractions within the Laurel Highlands. The Inn sits back from the road and is an interesting farm. Carol, the innkeeper was outstanding. She had excellent recommendations and anticipated our needs without overcrowding us. The rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated. The added touches of cookies and wine in the evening were very nice. Carol’s breakfasts were absolutely delicious! One entrée or side dish was outdone by the next. The fresh eggs and garden goodies certainly added value. Also, the fudge was outstanding. The Quill Haven Country Inn is perfect for relaxing and sightseeing!


Great hosts, great food, great room equals great B&B

We spent this past weekend at the Quill Haven Country Inn and attended the Mountain Craft Days at the local Historic Center. Carol and Rowland were gracious hosts and we enjoyed every minute of our stay. The B&B is also a working farm with a barn, garden, goats and chickens. It is a true haven right in the middle of Somerset. As their rates are VERY reasonable compared to other B&B's we've stayed. The Rose room on the first floor was very comfortable and clean. Carol's breakfasts are delicious. Rowland is quite the story teller and kept us entertained for hours. There is much to do locally such as the Historic Center, the Quecreek Miners Memorial, the Flight 93 Memorial and more. There are also many great places to eat and shop. Somerset is a great town. We HIGHLY recommend the Quill Haven Country Inn. Dan and Lynette


We had such a lovely time, we stayed there on our way back home.

Rowland and Carol are friendly and a joy to be with. Their home is beautiful and the breakfasts delicious. We highly recommend staying with them.


A Great Place

We stayed one night at the Quill Haven and my wife and I wish it could have been more! Carol and Rowland are very friendly and welcoming, the house is impeccably clean, the bedrooms amazing and the food great (including fresh eggs from their own hens). Nothing was too much trouble, and they even gave us a glass of wine! Don't just stay here if you are in the area, go out of your way to stay with Carol and Rowland. Its the best!


Great weekend away from the city

The experience at this bed and breakfast was memorable and wonderful. My husband and I went looking for a place close by to cross country skiing and hiking, and this place could not have been more perfect. Carol was incredibly sweet and her breakfast was fantastic, filling us up for most of the day. The hot tub was great to warm up in at the end of the day and our room was quiet and homey. Would definitely go back!


Really nice hosts at Quill Haven, Somerset, PA

Carol the hostess was so accommodating, hospitable, friendly. She lent me her new heavy rain coat since we were going hiking in the rain but unprepared. That rain coat saved the trip! Can't say enough about her genuine desire to make you feel as comfortable and at home as possible, from clean bed, large clean bathroom, yummy cookies, helpful tips and advice. We even visited her 7 goats and they were very friendly as well. You would be very lucky to stay here!
