Twin Pine Manor Bed & Breakfast

1934 W Main St , Ephrata, PA 17522 USA (Show map)


If you’ve ever wanted to step inside a Thomas Kinkade painting, look no further than Twin Pine Manor Bed & Breakfast in Ephrata. This stunning mansion has been the subject of national attention since recognized it as one of the Top Ten B&Bs in the United States. Twin Pine Manor is a decadently remodeled countryside retreat. It seamlessly melds rural comfort with upper class elegance and houses them within an architect’s dream home. Each of the nine guest rooms is uniquely themed, from the Fox Hunt Suite to the Tower Loft, and each is exquisite. Every room features its own fireplace and jacuzzi tub. Twin Pine Manor’s common areas are equally enchanting. From the rooftop “Top of the Pines” deck, you can delight in a breathtaking view of the 26-acre property, as well as 35 local farms. Relax with a game of billiards in the Recreation Room, or gather for a spontaneous recital on the grand piano in the Great Room. There is a peaceful atmosphere that blankets the Manor like a gentle Amish quilt. When it comes to lodgings, there’s nothing more telling than customer reviews. “It doesn’t get any better!” writes Henry M. on TripAdvisor. “If the Ritz Carlton decided to open B&Bs, they would use Twin Pine Manor as their model.”

Our first B&B

5 on November 12, 2017

The entire process from beginning to end was easy. Karen responded quickly to emails and upon arrival Norm and Karen gave us the tour and explained everything. Alpine room was very clean, cozy and comfortable. The entire grounds are very well maintained. The breakfast was excellent and if you leave hungry that is your own fault. Norm was a gracious host and entire staff did an excellent job. We will be returning.

Innkeeper Response
We're happy that your first time at a B&B was with us, and you were cozy and comfortable! Thanks for being great guests, we look forward to your return.

Beyond our expectations!

5 on September 05, 2017

There are not enough positive words to describe Twin Pine!! Norm is a wonderful host! He is such a friendly, kind man and wanted to be sure we were enjoying our stay. Our room was clean, fresh and absolutely beautiful. Breakfast was delicious and had a nice variety of options. We were totally relaxed and felt at home at the B & B. When we travel to that area, we will be booking our stay at Twin Pines!

Innkeeper Response
So happy we went beyond your expectations! We loved having you and hope to see you soon again!

Home away from home

Visiting our grandson was so special. Being able to be close by and feel the comfort and quiet of home is so appreciated. This b and b was luxurious with staff meeting your every need. We would rate this b and b experience as excellent and will return soon! Great workout space, close to town, nice gardens as well.

This was our second stay on a glorious October weekend. I would come back in a instant. The place is just so nice and you get to know the owner who makes you feel like you are a relative rather than just a guest. The place has good theme rooms that are nicely done and you get to meet a nice group of people. Thanks Norman for a great time.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you and come again! Norm so enjoys opening his home to people and welcoming them in.

Twin Pine Manor Bed & Breakfast is #1

5 on July 10, 2015

This was our first Bed & Breakfast experience, and we feel staying anywhere else would pale in comparison. The Tower Suite was luxurious with gorgeous 360 degree views of the countryside. The common areas were expansive while being warm and welcoming. And the food was superb!!! The staff made us feel, not like guests, but like we were coming home to family. We can't wait to come back! Rick & Kitty - New Jersey

Innkeeper Response
We love first time B&B guests! Thank you for rating us #1! Please come again.
