King's Cottage

4.8 on October 12, 2017

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

A charming place

4.8 on March 17, 2017

I have to say I am pretty critical when it comes to rooms. This place was bought as a gift from our son. The stay was so nice. The staff went out of their way to make you feel comfortable. The place was very clean and as pictured, the food was amazing. Don't pass up this place ever!!!!

Innkeeper Response

Best place ever

5 on January 23, 2017

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.

Innkeeper Response

Wonderful, warm and inviting

My husband and I stayed at Kings Cottage over New Years weekend. Had a wonderful stay. Room was wonderful with amazing bedding and great fireplace. Breakfasts were delicious and the innkeepers are so kind and helpful with information since we were completely new to the area. We always stay at Select Registry B&Bs and we highly recommend this one. Lancaster is a great town with lots to see and do in the area. Highly recommend getting a massage from Ann!! Can't wait to go back again.

Outstanding Inn

5 on October 02, 2016

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

Love the service

4.8 on September 24, 2016

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

Innkeeper Response
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.

Beautiful home and accommodating dining experience

4.0 on August 18, 2016

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.

Innkeeper Response
