Wonderful Overnight Stay

We always wanted to stay at a bed and breakfast. We went to Lancaster, PA to visit the Amish country. We spent the night at the Rocky Springs Bed and Breakfast. It was a wonderful experience, and we felt at home the entire. Its a beautiful properly, and the service was excelent. Miss Teresa, the host and manager, was a wonderful lady, and a great cook. I highly recommend Rocky Springs to anyone looking for a quiet, relaxing stay.

Phenomenal Bed & Breakfast

5 on July 16, 2016

As a young professional that spends many nights a week away from home, I have always stayed at big hotels. I was completely unfamiliar to what a B&B actually was. One night traveling to Lancaster, there must have been some event going on in the area, and every hotel was booked full. I took to the internet to find another place to stay, and I came across Rocky Springs. After reading a couple of good reviews, and with no hotel options available, I decided to give the B&B thing a try. I would like to start out by saying that my experience with Rocky Springs has easily been my best overnight experience that I have ever had. The mansion was absolutely gorgeous, and each bedroom had it's own unique touch with interesting historic memorabilia. The inn keeper, Theresa, was among the most warm and hospitible people I have ever met. She truley helped to make my experience a home away from home. I cannot even put into words how amazing the breakfast, tea, and coffee were; breakfast at normal hotels does not even compare to it! For the same price, and sometimes even less, as the surrounding hotels, there is no doubt in my mind that this will be the only place I stay when I travel to the area in the future.

Great find in Lancaster

My wife and I went here for our anniversary, we had wanted to try a bed and breakfast. We are both very glad we choose the Rocky Springs. We stayed in the cottage and loved it. It has a hot tub, a little fireplace stove, and is very comfortable. It was really hot outside and the cottage stayed cool and inviting. Teresa was a great host, she took us on a tour the first day and showed us the mansion and the cottage. Her breakfast's each morning were different and delicious. The Rocky Springs is also located near Old Philadelphia Pike road which has a lot of places to visit. Definitely we had a great location, and everywhere we wanted to visit was within 20 miles or less.

Picture Perfect

My wife and I stayed at the Rocky Springs Bed and Breakfast the weekend of July 10th to July 12th and we would stay there again when we are in the area. Theresa, the caretaker of the property was just an amazingly friendly, attentive and informative host! The breakfast that she made each morning, along with her wonderful stories got our day started on a very cheerful note. "Thanks Theresa!" Cathie and Bill

We stayed in the EmmaBelle room - it was very comfortable and very clean. Theresa was a delight - she prepared wonderful breakfasts each morning and was friendly and welcoming. This was our second stay at Rocky Springs and I'm sure we will return. . . Terry & Sherry

So much fun!

Our stay at Rocky Springs was just fantastic. We loved the cottage. It was adorable, very open, the Jacuzzi was awesome, and our breakfast was just delicious! I would recommend this stay for anyone. Also, the history of the bed n breakfast is really neat; it used to be an amusement park! The rich history made it even more fun to stay at.

A great choice!
