Anniversary weekend stay

3.8 on October 05, 2016

The room was beautiful & clean. The food was great ! the staff was very knowledgable & helpful. The over all atmosphere was very homey & welcoming

Outstanding Inn

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!

Love the service

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

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.

Our new go to Bed and Breakfast in Lancaster

5 on July 04, 2016

We booked this B&B online through 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.
