This place is the best ever. We have stayed at a lot of B&Bs but the rooms looked just like the pictures the service was excellent. The ladies went out of their way to make you feel right at home. The food was wonderful. I would highly recommend you to book your next stay right here.
Thank you for your recommendation for others. We appreciate you sharing your comments about your stay with us. We hope we will see you again for more exploring in Lancaster County or to attend one of the many live shows.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with others. We are glad you enjoyed our gourmet breakfast. Ann & Janis, Innkeepers

A 2 day stay in the carriage house behind the main inn was brilliant in the size and layout of the suite, the cleanliness and the comfort provided. They even delivered a lovely breakfast to our room in a picnic basket - which we enjoyed in privacy while wearing beautiful bathrobes they provided. Wonderful in every way!
Thank you for your comments. We are glad you enjoyed your relaxing time with us. We hope you will come again. Ann & Janis, Innkeepers

The service I felt was above and beyond! The emails for dining options and coupons I thought was fantastic. They offered directions to the restaurant which if we followed GPS would have taken longer due to traffic. When I thought I lost my wallet they were making phone calls to the restaurant to help me find it. Breakfast was delicious and even when we were checking out they were helping us find something to do on a Sunday when most things were closed. I will be a repeat customer to Kings Cottage
Thanks for taking the time to share your experience with others. It was a pleasure having you stay with us and we look forward to seeing you both again.

The home was beautiful; our room was very nice. The hosts were full of good information about surrounding area, and very accommodating for a dairy allergy at breakfast time. We would recommend this b&b to friends and family.
Thank you for staying with us. We are glad you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to meeting your friends and family members. We appreciate your comments and hope to see you again sometime.

Had a wonderful stay here. Ann and Janice are the best - extremely personable and caring, seeing to every detail. Great guide to all the local places of interest. Thoroughly enjoyed the food.
Thanks for your comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and the breakfasts we served. We hope to see you again in the future.

We booked this B&B online through bedandbreakfast.com. Before arrival the hosts had sent us a mini questionnaire to get to know us and prepare for our stay. They also sent restaurant recommendations along with coupons for local activities. We arrived on a Friday evening later then the normal checkin time. My husband spoke to Ann a few hours before arrival and she gave us great directions on how to enter the B&B after hours and find our room. We chose to stay in the Kings room during our stay. It was a beautifully decorated room with a nice king size bed, seating area, flat screen tv and fireplace. During this time of year the fire place doesn't seem to be working but that didn't bother us at all. It would be great to have in the cool months though :) The kings room does not have an ensuite bathroom, but the private bathroom is just a few steps around the corner. We had a our own key and we were the only ones that could use it. The private bathroom was very large with a soaking tub and separate standing shower. Breakfast both mornings were out of this world. The first morning we had french toast with bacon and the most delicious maple syrup. The second morning we enjoyed a yogurt parfait with homemade local granola followed by ham and cheese stuffed crepes. We also had the most delicious scones in which I could have eaten the whole basket. After raving about them Janis and Ann happily shared the recipe with me. I cant wait to make them here at home as a little reminder of our wonderful stay in their B&B. Each morning at breakfast, Ann gave great recommendations of where to visit and the popular places to see. She even has directions printed out to some of her favorite locations. We really thought that was a great touch and we really appreciated the ideas. Overall, we had a wonderful stay and look forward to booking another stay at the Kings cottage later this year.
Thanks so much for sharing your experience at the King's Cottage B&B with others. We are thrilled you enjoyed your stay. Let us know how your scones come out. We look forward to seeing you again sometime.

Excellent location for weekend get away. Breakfast was great. Room was excellent. The ladies running the B&B were fantastic

I especially appreciated the tips on places to visit and the coupons for us. We will be returning.
5 on July 30, 2015
The Kings Cottage is a lovely B&B to stay at when in Lancaster, convenient, friendly and wonderful service! Ann was so welcoming and offered suggestions for things to do during our stay. Ann made all of our reservations and provided detailed maps for getting around the area. We had a wonderful time and look forward to staying at Kings Cottage again.
4.8 on July 26, 2015
We stayed two nights at Kings Cottage Inn in the Contessa room. The room and the inn were immaculate. Janice and Ann are lovely innkeepers and extremely helpful. The breakfasts are heavenly ( we particularly enjoyed the blueberry scones.) The inn is conveniently located, just a short drive to many of the area attractions. I would definitely stay there again next time I visit Lancaster.
4.6 on July 20, 2015
This is a beautiful big home right in the heart of Lancaster. We did not go to one single Amish buffet or ride a horse and buggy as we have on previous visits. King's Cottage shows another side of a great town with a lot of history.
5 on June 29, 2015
Ann was very accommodating and pleasant. She waited extra for us to arrive, so she could greet us personally. She arranged our FANTASTIC breakfast earlier for us so we could be on time for our Scooter Tour. Would definately go back!
4.6 on May 23, 2015
We absolutely loved King's Cottage B & B. From the minute we were greeted by Janis, we felt at home. The living spaces were lovely and our room was comfortable. We enjoyed our balcony as we relaxed with a glass of wine after a busy day in Lancaster. Our breakfast was scrumptious and plentiful. I would recommend King's Cottage to anyone.
5 on April 10, 2015
Ann was so nice and helpful with marking up maps and recommending things to see and even helping making dinner reservation when we could not get through by cell phone! Never had a 3 course breakfast before! Everything was homemade and delicious with fresh coffee, juice, etc. We really enjoyed our stay at King's Cottage Bed & Breakfast and would highly recommend it to friends and family! Kevin & Sue M.

We experienced a wonderfully relaxing stay at King's Cottage B & B during our 44th anniversary vacation....spending all day Thursday in complete relaxation while the snow fell was beyond our expectations. We were also blessed with a wonderful hostess who's warmth and conversation was an added bonus. The couples' massage and covered bridge tour were great suggestions. We look forward to visiting again, and taking in another mud sale weekend.
4.6 on March 16, 2015
We indulged in the on-site couples massage and it was totally worth it. Ann and Janis went out of their way to work with our schedule and make it happen. They were attentive from the minute we arrived to the minute we left. We would definitely stay again. The entire Inn was meticulous and beautiful.
Thank you for sharing your experience at the King's Cottage with future guests. We are glad you enjoyed the couples massage as well as your visit with us. We look forward to seeing you again.
4.2 on November 24, 2014
The King's Cottage B & B is delightfully decorated with exceptional accommodations, and they serve wonderful breakfasts. Janis and Ann's passion to make this B & B so enjoyable is evident in they way you are greeted and treated. They make you feel very much at home. A great place to spend some time!
5 on November 03, 2014
We spent two luxurious nights and delicious breakfasts at King's Cottage. Ann was very helpful and full of wonderful information that makes we want to return to the Cottage and Lancaster.
5 on September 18, 2014
King's Cottage is a lovely historic home. My husband and I had a very enjoyable stay. The innkeepers were wonderful and the breakfasts were delicious. We will definitely stay here here again if we are ever in the area. Mike & Patty
4.8 on August 25, 2014
My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Kings’ Cottage this past weekend. We enjoyed every moment of it. We stayed in the Princess Room and enjoyed the outdoor balcony in the afternoons and early morning. The food was delicious and they were very accommodating to our special dietary needs. You could not ask for a better place to spend a relaxing weekend.
5 on July 01, 2014
My husband and I went to Lancaster for one night just to get away. We stayed at Kings Cottage Bed and Breakfast and had a wonderful time. We scheduled a couple's massage when we first got there. It was fabulous. Everyone there was wonderful. The room and bathroom were very clean and the bed was very comfortable. The Inn Keepers were extremely friendly and helpful. They had printed directions for just about everywhere and recommended a great farmers market that was open on Sunday. The breakfast was delicious and they let us stay and talk to some other guest over coffee and never made us feel that we had to rush. I would definitely stay again the next time we are in Lancaster.
5 on June 30, 2014
Our first time at a B&B was truly amazing. Janis and Ann made us feel like family who came for a lovely visit. We couldn't have asked for a nicer B&B, the atmosphere was warm and cozy and the breakfasts were wonderful. Every morning was a special treat and we will definitely go back to the Kings Cottage B&B. Oh, Samson was just adorable.
5 on June 09, 2014
Our B&B host Ann was extremely helpful with suggestions on where to go for viewing the covered bridges with maps and directions, several great restaurants for meals and some of the best tourist attractions. Being a highly ranked B&B, she lived up to that reputation with superb and delicious breakfasts that we thoroughly enjoyed. We are looking forward to a return trip in the near future
4.4 on May 28, 2014
We really enjoyed our stay. Innkeepers are outstanding. Friendly, helpful, yet not overbearing. Room was perfect. Highly recommended.
4.6 on May 19, 2014
From the warm welcome, to the beautiful interior, comfortable bed and absolutely superb breakfasts - every possible need is met! We highly recommend King's Cottage
5 on May 16, 2014
Great rooms, great innkeepers, great breakfasts. WEehave stayed in all the boutique hotels and the Marriott (terrible service!!) in Lancasster, and King's Cottage is far and away our favorite place. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. Easy access to downtown and surrounding areas. Don't miss this great B&B.
4.4 on May 08, 2014
King's Cottage is tastefully decorated with unique furniture and trappings down to skeleton key door locks that reminds you of what life was like in the late 18th/early 19th centuries. Yet, the B&B had many of the comforts and conveniences of today.
4.6 on May 07, 2014
My wife found Kings Cottage on the web and we are sure glad she did. It was a great long weekend for us in PA and we totally enjoyed the great Breakfast every morning. Ann, Janice and Nancy were just great people and are very good at recommending the local sites. Sampson kept an eye on us and we enjoyed meeting other guests during our stay. We highly recommend staying here and taking in the surrounding area. Ann is a great cook and we are looking forward to coming back one day. Lisa & Keith B.
3.6 on April 17, 2014
The innkeepers were very accommodating and was a pleasant addition to our stay. The breakfasts were excellent and tasty. We would recommend if you are in the Lancaster area that you try this B & B for yourself and be the judge. Simply wonderful!!
4.0 on April 14, 2014
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Kings Cottage. The Inn Keepers were knowledgeable about the area, things to do and were extremely helpful. The breakfasts were outstanding-made with local ingredients. We will be back!
5 on March 17, 2014
My wife and I have stayed at the Kings Cottage B&B on numerous occasions, and have had a wonderful experience each time we have stayed. Anne and Janice are wonderful hosts and always helpful to determine the many wonderful things there are to do in Lancaster County. I would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a pleasant getaway for the weekend.
4.6 on October 25, 2013
Had a lovely stay. Would definitely return.
4.8 on September 19, 2013
We chose the King's Cottage as our weekend accommodations for a friend's wedding nearby. With our own wedding only two weeks away, we thought it would be the perfect getaway and time to refresh. We were absolutely correct! Every small detail of the King's Cottage contributes to the romantic and relaxing atmosphere. The food was delicious, the gardens were beautiful, and Janis and Ann were so friendly and welcoming. We stayed in the Carriage House and even enjoyed breakfast brought right to our front door. Just the right amount of privacy while still enjoying the friendly feel of a bed and breakfast. Everything was perfect!
5 on August 30, 2013
we stayed only one night but we had relax and enjoy...
4.2 on July 05, 2013
We had a wonderful visit. The Inn keepers provided outstanding breakfasts and catered to our requests (extending our stay due to our unpredictable schedule, lowering the air conditioning for us, and meeting our dietary needs). The Inn was lovely and our rooms were very comfortable, and the Inn keepers were extremely helpful with providing restaurant recommendations and directions. Overall a very positive experience, and we would recommend it to other visitors to Lancaster.
5 on June 29, 2013
My wife and I stayed in the Carriage House two nights during our honeymoon. I can’t stress how wonderful our visit was. From the moment we opened the doors we felt truly welcomed. Walking in we saw a beautiful card congratulating us on our wedding, a basket of Lancaster gourmet goodies and a plate of delightful chocolates. The room itself was amazing, with the table and chairs where we shared our breakfast (delivered to our door in a charming basket) in front of the fireplace to the 2 person Jacuzzi where we relaxed every evening with a bottle of wine. The breakfasts were plentiful and mouth watering, you will not go away hungry. The bed was more than comfortable and after my wife’s back surgery that is of utmost importance! Ann and Janis are both amazing and knowledgeable innkeepers, every recommendation they made was not only perfect for us but was something they too had experienced themselves. We highly recommend The King’s Cottage for your next getaway!! Michelle & Melissa

Me and my husband recently stayed here at this wonderful and no exaggerating Best Bed and Breakfast Kings Cottage on 4/20/2013.The innkeepers hands down knew everything and had everything you could possibly need or want on a peaceful vacation away .I have been to many B&Bs but by far this one really deserves A Recognition of excellence!!! From the cleanliness to the knowledge of the area .to the restaurants ,and so on I cant say enough, except thank you so much for making our 30th anniversary the best ever!!
5 on April 01, 2013
This B&B is first class all the way around. I surprised my wife with a romantic getaway and worked with Ann & Janis to assist with many surprises for my wife. They were both extremely accommodating and exceeded my expectations on every level. If you are looking for a night, weekend or week away - - this is the place to stay. I am one on the pickiest individuals when it comes to cleanliness as well as all around accommodations. Ann & Janis exceeded our expectations!!
Thank you so much for taking the time to share you thoughts and impressions with others. It was a pleasure meeting you and helping you with all of the little surprises for your wife. We look forward to seeing you again.
4.4 on March 12, 2013
It's the little things that make you feel at home at King's Cottage. From the complimentary snacks, amish made pies, and bottled water to the little chocolates on the night stand. I really feel like the innkeepers go out of their way to make your stay wonderful. During breakfast, my husband said it was the best he had ever had at a BandB before, it helped that it was delivered via picnic basket for us to eat in our room by the fire.
Thank you for mentioning all of the little things that made your stay with us memorable. We are glad you enjoyed our breakfast and your special time together. Thank you for sharing your comments with other travelers.
5 on December 26, 2012
We have stayed at King's Cottage several times and have thoroughly enjoyed every visit. We have never encountered anything but excellence. The facility is outstanding and Janice and Ann and crew are your family. They do everything for you and accommodate your every need. They truly make you feel like you are very welcome and part of their family. The breakfasts are fantastic and they will cater to any special needs such as allergies, different tastes, etc. If you go to Lancaster, stay at King's Cottage. You will not regret it.
Thank you so much for sharing your experiences at the King's Cottage with others. We look forward to welcoming you back again and catching up again.
4.8 on October 27, 2012
My wife and I recently stayed at King's Cottage in Lancaster. The innkeepers, Ann and Janis are exceedingly helpful and make you feel like you have arrived to visit old friends! They stock a wealth of informative advice on dining and attractions and are always ready to offer directions to help navigate Lancaster county. Our room was beautiful, breakfast was spectacular and the inn and surrounding property is a must see! We would highly recommend this beautiful B&B to anyone visiting Lancaster.
Thank you for your comments. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We look forward to seeing you again.
4.6 on September 14, 2012
Our accommodations (the Contessa) were very comfortable, pleasant and private. The innkeepers are very knowledgeable and helpful. With their recommendations in hand, we found a wonderful restaurant in town for dinner. The breakfast was, true to the theme, fit for a king. Beautifully prepared and served. We would definitely stay there again!
We appreciate your comments and we look forward to seeing you again some time.
4.8 on September 21, 2011
we just recently stayed in the King room at the King's Cottage. Our room was amazingly furnished and very unique. The bathroom was extremely well kept and clean. Our inn keepers Ann and Janis were extremely helpful in planning our day and providing us with maps of the area and various dining suggestions. The breakfasts at the Inn were outstanding!! we were there in mid september and due to colder temperatures in the evening we had our Fireplace pilot lit in our bedroom which was a nice surprise. we highly reccommend this bed and breakfast. We did not find anything dissatisfying--felt very much at home!
5 on August 22, 2011
This B&B is comfortable and beautifully decorated. The rooms are large and the hostesses are outstanding. They post all of the possible activities you would want to know about on a white board every morning and they have directions to everywhere (written down so you can take them with you!) The ladies are very professional and extremely helpful without being intrusive. The rooms are elegant and the home is extremely welcoming. Awesome!
4.0 on June 08, 2011
This is our second stay at Kings Cottage in the last decade; we stayed there 9 years ago. With B&B experience in the US, UK and France, we know a great one when we see one. Owners Janis and Anne are to be commended for operating a physically beautiful, warm and comfortable gem in one of the US' great touring destinations. Add this one to your bucket list.
5 on June 08, 2011
From the time we arrived to the time we left, it felt like we were home. The innkeepers, Ann and Janis, were so welcoming. We took advantage of the massages available, and spent the rest of our weekend completely relaxed. They were ready with information about the town and different activities, and able to recommend wonderful restaurants. The room was luxurious and exceeded my expectations. Breakfast was delicious, and it was wonderful to hear how many locally grown/made foods they used. Overall a wonderfully relaxing time at the King's Cottage. My husband land I will be visiting them again!
4.6 on March 11, 2011
Warm, gracious B&B with a real sense of relaxation. The enclosed front porch as the perfect place to enjoy a snack, do some reading and relax before going to dinner. Our room was beautiful, spacious and only the noise from the heating system disturbed the peace.
4.8 on March 10, 2011
We spent our 35th anniversary at The King's Cottage B & B in June of 2010. We had a wonderful stay of 8 nights and Janis and Ann were so hospitable. We had our breakfast delivered the first morning in a basket outside our door and the food was wonderful. Never having the same meal during our 8 days there and was always something to look forward to. Never having been to this area, Janis and Ann were there each morning to give us suggestions and maps on things to do and see. We will not hesitate to go back to The King's Cottage if we return to that area. All in all, we couldn't have made a better choice than this special place (a home away from home).
5 on February 23, 2011
The staff was exceptional! My wife and I felt "at home" because of the warmth and kindness of the staff that greeted us and made sure that our stay there was an experience that we both will remember. The room was great, and the accommodations outstanding. The breakfasts we enjoyed in our room, by the fire were unforgettable. The weekend spent at the King's Cottage was perfect. We are already planning a return trip.
5 on February 17, 2011
What a wonderfull weekend we recently had at King's Cottage. Janice and Ann were wonderful and so attentive to our every need. The breakfasts were to die for. We have stayed at other B&Bs but this one by far was the best. We plan on returning when the weather gets a little warmer.
4.4 on February 09, 2011
Our third stay at King's Cottage. We recommend trying to stay in the Carriage House. This is a secluded room with a gas fire place, a jaquzzi, and a huge comfortable bed. The innkeepers, Ann and Janice are very nice and extremely attentive to your needs.
4.4 on January 18, 2011
We recently had the pleasure of staying in the Majestic Chamber, the room was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, warm and inviting. Our hosts were more than gracious. They offered activity and meal ideas accompanied by written driving directions to area attractions and often coupons for discounts. They made dinner reservations and served an excellent hot breakfast. Oh, did we mention the Rose Petal bath and the massages!! Overall, a wonderful relaxing respite in Lancaster, close to everything but in a peaceful neighborhood!
5 on January 18, 2011
This was our 27th wedding anniversary and I wanted everything to be special for my wife. We ordered Roses for the room, Rose pedals for the tub, chocolate covered strawberries for the room and other items. It was all done to perfection. The room was outstanding and the service, cleanliness and food was incredible. Of all the B and B's we have stayed at we were the most thrilled with King's. We highly recommend them.
5 on January 13, 2011
We loved the King's Cottage. It was beautiful and clean the service was great and we had a great time. It was the best breakfast we've ever had! It was very romantic and we'd definitely go back!

Beautiful B&B in the middle of a rolling heartland! Enjoyed the Covered Bridge Tour and Antiquing. Room-Cozy and comfortable, breakfast delicious (alternative choice option might be in order for plain tastes,though I enjoyed every bite,my husband does not like his fruit warm )

Great little B&B, very accommadating and very clean! We would definately stay here again

Relaxed, understated elegance. We were very comfortable and content at the King's Cottage. Janis - the Innkeeper is a delight and so very gracious and helpful. The breakfast was memorable... "Eggs in a cloud" (Heavenly and yummy). Our room was comfy too and oh so pretty. Dave and Marie

The rooms were beautiful and the service was fantastic!! The food was good but not over and above my expectations. I will definitely be back!!
3.8 on December 21, 2010
Room was fantastic, and the staff is very warm and inviting. But breakfast honestly wasn't much to write home about. In fact, we went out for something to eat immediately after checkout.
Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoyed your room & talking with the staff. We apologize that our breakfast didn't meet your expectations. We think you were served our Turkey Sausage Florentine crepes which was a new recipe. We will remove this entree from our recipe collection. If you were served something else that did not please you, please let us know so we can adjust our breakfast menu accordingly. We hope you come visit again on your next trip to Lancaster County.
3.8 on December 08, 2010
My parents really enjoyed their relaxing weekend to get away from some stress at home. Thank you for making their stay enjoyable!
We are glad they enjoyed themselves. It was a pleasure to host your parents. We hope you will be able to come stay with us yourself in the future. Thank you.

Very clean and friendly. The owners were quite helpful in suggesting restaurants and shopping venues and in giving us driving directions, and they even offered to make reservations for us. The room in which we stayed had a nauseating cooking odor in the bathroom, however. The breakfast was tasty but sparse. One hot dish -- a turkey and spinach roll-up -- and no eggs, bacon, waffles, or pancakes. All in all, it was not nearly worth the $235 a night rate, in our opinion.
Thank you for leting us know we need to work on that breakfast. We alternate serving a sweet entree, like waffles or french toast one morning, and then an egg based dish, such as crepes or frittata the next. We are so sorry our turkey sausage florentine crepes with fresh basil cream sauce were not satisfying. We do need feedback like this to adjust the quantity served and/or the recipe. We had changed the recipe from using pork sausage to turkey recently. We will have to rework our recipe to make it more satisfying. As well, we will make sure whatever fruit course we start with pairs nicely with the muffins or scones we always serve with our crepes. We are sorry the aromas coming from the kitchen were unpleasant for you. Until now all our guests have said they loved waking up to the aroma of bacon or coffee or whatever was being made in the kitchen in the morning. Perhaps the fresh basil was pungent and not to your liking. Perhaps we did not have the kitchen vent fan on high to exhaust properly. We will have to pay better attention to that in the future. Perhaps if our breakfast had been better you might have enjoyed your stay more. The Princess room is priced higer than some other rooms since it has a luxury bathroom with a whirlpool tub and double sinks set in an antique marble countertop and is in high demand. We are sorry its features disappointed you.
4.4 on November 17, 2010
The room was wonderful, and the staff couldn't do enough to make the entire stay perfect. What a pleasure to be treated to a pampered life.
Thank you for your feedback. We hope we get to pamper you again soon.
1.6 on November 12, 2010
There seemed to be no special effort on the part of the Innkeepers to make the stay meaningful.Breakfast left something to be desired considering the price. Extras were hard to get because you had to leave your room and go outside to take part in the minimal snacks that were not on par with other B&Bs
We are sorry you were disappointed with your stay. In October, we offer pie, cake, or homemade cookies along with fresh local apple cider & fresh fruit. Alternatively, we put out a cheese tray instead of sweets, depending on guests dietary preferences. Going forward, we will monitor the snacks to make sure they are replenished if they they get low. If a guest is not happy with the fruit starter or breakfast entree we are always happy to provide an alternative if they let us know. We normally ask our guests how each course is but perhaps we got busy and missed doing so. We apologize if we missed doing so. We will make a conscious effort to make sure we check with each guest at breakfast to make sure they are satisfied. We are sorry your room location did not meet your needs. The 2 rooms we have with private outside entrances are usually chosen because the guest wants the seclusion and privacy. The tradeoff is that the guest must walk around and come inside to partake in snacks and enter the dining room. However, snacks can always be taken back to the room. The descriptions of our rooms do make this distinction clear.
4.8 on November 10, 2010
Our stay at Kings Cottage was amazing. The rooms are beautiful and the breakfasts delicious. The owners were sooooo helpful, giving directions, making reservations, making suggestions and answering questions about the history in the Lancaster area.
Thank you for your comments. We are glad you enjoyed your visit. We hope to see you again soon.

My husband and i recently stayed 3 nights at the King's Cottage. We had a wonderful time. We have been to Lancaster many times in the past, but had never stayed at a B&B here. We had a great experience. The directions provided on the website of the inn are easy to follow. Ann and Janis, the innkeepers, could not have been more accomodating. Just mention a restuarant or attraction in the area...they know everything about it, have been there themselves, know the easiest way to get there (inspite of your GPS telling you otherwise sometimes! Listen to the ladies...they KNOW!) and probably have a coupon for you to use! Breakfast was a delicious treat every day. And we loved the special touches which set a B&B apart from the rest...complimentary water and snacks like granola bars always available, great Flavia coffee machine with every imaginable type of coffee or tea, at your disposal, nightly little chocolates in the room, snaks and warm cider late in the afternoon, and even a thoughtful anniversary card on our pillow at check-in. We stayed in the King's Room...lovely. The only drawback, if you want to call it that, is that the bathroom for this room is about 8 steps from the door of the room. You must pass another guest room to get to it. While it is totally private and for your exclusive use, this may be a concern to some. And the floors in the hall are very creaky! I only mention this for information...it did not detract from our stay. In fact, for the first 2 nights, we were the only ones on the 2nd floor. And long,spa-type robes are provided. All in all, we loved the place and would highly recommend it!
We appreciate your time and all of your comments. We enjoy helping folks get around Lancaster County and finding some of its treasures. I guess living in our historic home, which will be 100 years old in 2013, we get use to the creaky floors. We are glad they didn't detract from your stay. We hope you'll come back for another visit and explore more of Lancaster County.

I have stayed in many Bed and Breakfasts throughout the United States and Kings Cottage was one of the best Bed and Breakfast experiences I have had. The home is absolutely beautiful. The rooms are decorated very tastefully. The Innkeepers couldn't have been more hospitable. They were most attentive to their guests to assure that their stay at Kings Cottage is the most comfortable possible. And the breakfasts were supurb. They were delicious and beautifully displayed. We will definitely return for further enjoyable times at Kings Cottage.
Thank you so much for your feedback. We look forward to your next visit.

Janis and Ann are the best! They feel like warm friends now, and what they provide at The Kings Cottage, I've not found anywhere else to date. The house itself is amazingly beautiful, relaxing and welcoming. It is my official home away from home....my great escape when I need peace of mind, body and soul. The sun room is my favorite place in the house to drift away, any time of day. Breakfast is always a delicious surprise! I can't say enough about the attention given to every detail of your stay...including the most luxurious robe I have ever fallen into waiting in your room! Guess you can tell I can't wait to go back...again and again! Vickie, Glassboro NJ
Vickie, we appreciate your comments. It is always a thrill to open the door, see a familiar face and welcome back a new friend. We look forward to your next visit.

All you could ever want in a B&B - with the benefit of a fantastic array of dining choices.
We appreciate your comments. Yes, Lancaster County does offer a large selection of dining options. We hope you'll come for another visit soon.

This is a truly wonderful place to stay! My daughter, who is attending college in Philadelphia, and I spent a fabulous mother/daughter weekend in the Amish country. We wanted that home-like atmosphere, so after scouring the internet for B&Bs, we settled on the King's Cottage. We stayed in the Carriage House, which we loved. We enjoyed all the extra ammenities (fireplace, flat screen TV for late night movies, in-room dining (incredible breakfasts), plush robes, huge bathroom, in-room fridge (for all our perishable purchases in town), popcorn and hot cocoa, and peace & quiet) and felt quite pampered. The owners also had great suggestions of where to eat and things to do in the area. We had such a great time, we found ourselves just wanted to come back to the B&B to relax in our fantastic room. The extra cost for the Carriage House is really worth it. Thank you!!
Thank you for your time and comments. The Carriage House is a wonderful room for relaxation, which you described so well. We look forward to seeing you and your daughter again in 2011.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 1 night stay in this beautiful Inn. Being near the city and yet a short drive to the magnificent farmlands made this a great location. Ann and Janis were very nice and helpful.
We appreciate your comments. We feel the same way as you regarding our location. You said it so well. We hope you'll come back for a longer visit next time.

My husband and I stayed on a Saturday night and had a marvelous time. Kings Cottage is convenient to many of the Amish sites that one wants to visit. Our room was more grand than we expected and very comfortable. Breakfast was amazing, both food and fellowship.
We are glad you enjoyed your short visit with us. Thank you for the feedback. We hope to see you again soon.

The owners could not be more prepared and professional.They provided specific directions to any location, menus for all restaurants, prepared outstanding meals and snacks worthy of a gourmet magazine's photos and recipes, made available the best soap, chocolate, and videos, had the finest teas, coffees, magazines and newspapers, and expended all effort to make our visit enjoyable. Home is lovely and enhanced by outdoor trees, shrubs, and fresh flowers. These hosts know what they're doing!

The King's Cottage in Lancaster is a spacious and charming bed and breakfast. The common areas are spacious and well appointed. The innkeepers, Janis and Ann treat you like family and make you feel welcome. They encourage you to take advantage of the amenities available and to feel comfortable using the common areas. The rooms are clean and each one is decorated beautifully. The breakfasts are delicious and ingredients used are typically obtained fresh from local farmers and markets. Janis and Ann are very knowledgeable about the area and make it a point to personally visit local restaurants, shops and local attractions so they have first hand knowledge when asked about the local area. We highly recommend this outstanding bed and breakfast!

My wife and I came her to "get away" for a few days and had a great stay. The Innkeeper was extremely helpful and friendly. Ann knew exactly where to direct us for dining and for sightseeing and shopping in Amish Country. The Inn itself was delightful and the morning breakfasts were superb. I'd recommend this Inn to anyone who want so to enjoy a nice leisurely time both close in to Lancaster and close to the rest of the Amish Country sights. PS I used the spa services, too, and they were wonderful.

We just completed our 8th stay at the Kings Cottage B & B in Lancaster and look forward to future visits. The facility is excellent, the afternoon snacks and conversations with the other guests make your days and the breakfasts are always different, very health concious and tailored to your tastes. Most of all, Ann, Janis and their staff treat you like loved ones. They do everything for you from suggesting activities, attractions, restaurants, etc. then make the reservations for you often at a discounted cost. They are so well known in the Lancaster area, that a mention of their name gives you added attention. They are one of the most centrally located inns in Lancaster which makes it very easy to totally maximize your stay in the area. Our friends who were there for the first time raved about their experience. The crowning glory was that they had to leave early Saturday morning for a train. As they were leaving the Kings Cottage a bag with hot coffee in travel mugs and a selection of warm muffins was sitting outside their door for them. We travel extensively and no one treats us as well as Ann, Janis and staff and you too will receive the same value. Visit them the next time you are in Lancaster.

We stumbled upon Kings Cottage and have been back several times since. It's location is ideal (about a 2 hour drive from NYC area), and the rooms and grounds are beautiful. We try to stay in a different room each time as each is unique and special. The breakfasts are incredible, good enough to get even my sleepy boyfriend out of bed early. We stay at bed and breakfasts and hotels regularly, and I cannot say enough about Ann and Janis. They help us plan wonderful activities, recommend the perfect dining choices and include step by step directions anywhere we go. We enthusiastically recommend Kings Cottage to all!!

Stayed here for my 25th anniversary. My husband is a chef and he raved about the breakfast delivered to our room in a basket. Room comfortable and they helped us with special diner arrangements. Very special and memorable.
