King's Cottage

5 on September 13, 2018

We will definitely be back! We were welcomed with open arms even though we arrived 2 hours early. Our room was ready, and we were offered several suggestions for a late lunch in the area. (even provided with a coupon!) Wonderful recommendations for local food, sights, maps to bridges, and so much more. Our breakfasts on both days were AMAZING!! Great interaction with other guests made the trip truly unforgettable. I would 100% recommend anyone looking for a B & B in Lancaster to choose this one. You won't be disappointed... Thanks again....

The room was nice, but I expect better linens and towels at a B&B.

3.0 on August 27, 2018

The room was good and the bed very comfortable, but the towels were old and the sheets were low quality. The inn keeper was nice and breakfast was very good.

A true Innkeeper

Perfect place for our first trip to Lancaster and Amish country. Great old house, ample and cozy rooms and outstanding breakfast. But - Ann - the innkeeper made the trip and stay. She is a true professional, lovely to be with, knowledgeable and connected. She is what a Bed and Breakfast is all about. Don't miss.

Princess room getaway

4.0 on July 11, 2018

We enjoyed our one night stay at King’s Cottage. Ann greeted us when we arrived & gave us a very thorough tour of the house. We loved being in the Princess room because there was a private balcony off of the bedroom. It was nice to have that space after a day of touring lovely Lancaster. Breakfast was delicious & we enjoyed meeting the other guests. Thank you for your gracious hospitality!!

Innkeeper Response
We are so glad you enjoyed the balcony, as many others in the Princess room has. Thank you for taking the time to let others know about your experience. We hope you'll be able to stay longer next time.

Loved our stay and would definitely stay again. Ann is a fabulous innkeeper and a joy to be around.Her breakfast was awesome. The house was so inviting. We stayed in the Queen room which was lovely, but too cold. Couldn't find a way to turn down the air conditioning. Other than that, it was perfect!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your time and comments. We are sorry the room was too cold for your 1st night. Our contact phone numbers are in the notebook that is in each room. We hate you didn't call one of us so we could have taken care of it through the evening. The operating instructions for the fireplace in your room was in the notebook as well. We do appreciate you mentioning this to us during breakfast your first morning so we could make the proper adjustment for your 2nd night. We hope you will come again.

2nd stay

We have stayed here 2 times and had great experiences both times. We have stayed at several B&Bs over the years and this has become our favorite. Great inn keepers and the house is beautiful. You will not be disappointed. Frank

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for coming back and we are thrilled to be on your "Favorite" list. We are glad you enjoyed both of your stays with us. We look forward to your next visit.

First, but not the last!!

This was our first stay at a B&B. This was a Christmas present to my wife for "Quilter's Week". Janis and Ann spared no effort in making my wife and I feel at home. It goes without saying that the meals were wonderful.We will be back to King's Cottage and B&B is our new preferred vacation.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for sharing your experience with other travelers. We look forward to seeing you again when you can relax, explore the county and buy more fabric.
