About

Make your getaway picture perfect . . . Spend the night in an art gallery! We invite you to Terre Hill, a small town nestled among Amish farms. You'll feel like you've escaped to a simpler, gentler time as horse-driven buggies pass by the house and chimes play from the 19th century church. All rooms feature gas stoves, cd players, and two feature Jacuzzi whirlpool tubs, cable tv/dvd players. Browse through the colored pencil pictures in the gallery, featuring the work of Innkeeper Bruce Garrabrandt. At the end of the day, you'll find your bed turned down and home-made chocolates on your pillow. Mornings feature a four-course gourmet breakfast. All our food is made from scratch and features foods from nearby farms. The Olde Stone Cottage and Carriage House are whole-house vacation rentals perfect for romantic retreats, family reunions or girlfriends getaways.

A Delightful B&B

5 on June 30, 2014

I doubt I can find the proper words to express our satisfaction with The Artist's Inn and Gallery. Although we only spent one night, we throughly enjoyed ourselves. On our arrival, Jan greeted us, gave us a tour of the property, then settled us into our room. We had the Kris Kringle Room and it was tastefully decorated in a Christmas theme. The bed was nice and comfortable. We spent most of the evening on the front porch sitting in rocking chairs with a bottle of wine watching the Amish pass by in their buggies. In the morning we were treated to a delicious four course breakfast served by Bruce. I feel the word delicious is understated in this case because the food was so good. Jan and Bruce provided us with a wonderful ending to our week-long drive vacation through Pennsylvania and the Virginias. We have not stopped talking about it and will be back to enjoy the hospitality of The Artist's Inn and Gallery and explore more of Lancaster County.

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for posting a review. We're so glad you enjoyed the porch...porch sitting is a wonderful pastime in Lancaster County! We hope to see you again.


A wonderful stay!

Our time at the Artist's Inn & Gallery was a WONDERFUL stay. The gracious innkeepers went over and beyond to make our stay enjoyable and pleasant. The food, very plentiful, was delicious and was presented on a beautiful table. We want to go back!


Spring Getaway

5 on May 23, 2013

From the start we were greeted with a friendly smile and a feeling of warmth. There was no awkwardness, but rather a "come in and sit awhile" feeling. As we were on our way out to the Sight and Sound show, Jan made sure we knew all the ins and outs of the house in case we came home late. Upon our return from the show our bed was turned down with chocolate turtle confections on pillows. We slept well, accommodations were superb! In the morning we enjoyed browsing through Bruce's whimsical colored pencil artwork (Even bought one!). Breakfast was wonderful ...Pecan waffles with Blueberry compote as well as home made zucchini bread. Great right down to the Stevia leaves which were a great treat! Thank you for your conversation and making us feel like we could stay for a week! A definite must try for anyone considering a visit! Fond Memories....Don & Barb Livingston


Beautiful, Peaceful, Friendly B&B

We have spent many happy days and nights at this special inn but this time we were excited to share our experience with dear friends. From the moment we arrived, Jan and Bruce made us feel completely at home. The inn itself is beautiful with each piece of furniture selected and placed with care and thoughtfulness. Jan's famous cookies had to be sampled and the gardens demanded a visit. Our rooms were perfect- clean and ready with anything that might be needed. Bruce's colored pencil drawings throughout delighted each one of us. The porch on a beautiful spring evening was the most relaxing place any of us could imagine. Both couples agreed that the beds were very comfortable and we especially loved the amazing sheets. They had a luxurious feel and did not wrinkle. Jan's breakfast presentation each day was done with style and grace. Special tableware, napkins, napkin holders... The food was delicious and different each day. Jan is definitely a gourmet cook who takes pride in what she prepares and serves. This is a destination to which we must repeatedly return - as soon as possible.


Artist's Inn and Gallery, Terre Hill, PA

5 on April 22, 2012

We recently stayed at the Artist's Inn and Gallery in Terre Hill, Lancaster, PA. Innkeepers Bruce and Jan Garrabrandt are hospitable hosts. The inn boasts two of their rooms with king size beds, which is not customary for a bed and breakfast inn. Bruce is an artist with an incredible sense of humor, which is depicted in most of his colored pencil drawings. He is creative and whimsical and it is almost impossible to leave the inn without a purchase of one of his drawings or books. Jan's cooking is a culinary delight. They are both attentive to every detail, printing maps and coupons for guests, along with making wonderful suggestions for restaurants, antique markets. etc. We highly recommend the Artist Inn for a memorable stay in Lancaster.
