Walnut Lawn Bed & Breakfast

1027 Village Road , Lancaster, PA 17602 USA (Show map)


Our turn-of-the-Century home recalls the rural life a century ago. A wrap around porch and quiet gazebo provide places to relax, read or watch the Amish buggies ride by. Each room has a 20" cabled TV for your enjoyment. Our small orchard provides fruit for the breakfast table.

Beautiful Bed and Breakfast

5 on April 10, 2018

We recently stayed at Walnut Lawn to celebrate our 39th Anniversary. We frequent the Lancaster area generally once a year. We found Beth's home to be warm, inviting, comfortable and very well maintained. Upon arrival, Beth welcomed us into her home, showed us around, provided us with some area driving suggestions and made us feel right at home. The morning breakfast was wonderful and we enjoyed getting to know Beth during the weekend. We will absolutely return to this delightful B&B for our future Lancaster area getaways!

Best of the 14 B and Bs I've Visited in the past 11 years!

Quiche? Fiesta sausage? Chocolate Mousse? French Toast made from French Bread? Three different courses every morning served with a genuine smile? For those of us who absolutely LOVE breakfast...Beth is a MAGICIAN! Authentic Amish quilts on the beds AND on the walls? Spotless and roomy bathroom with custom made toiletries? Leather couch and wine opener and ancient oak chest of drawers? For those of us who absolutely LOVE to be pampered...Beth is a GENIE! Homemade cookies available in the lobby all day and all night? Antique and unique furniture in the dining room and both large sitting rooms? Victorian style mansion with gardens and gazebo in a private country setting? Plenty of parking on site and only minutes from all the Amish attractions, markets, balloon, buggy and helicopter rides, plus, terrific restaurants... Beth goes to all of them so she can recommend the best sushi, steak or salad bar! For those of us who absolutely LOVE bed and breakfasts...Beth's is the best! Lauren DeFeo Cold Spring Harbor, NY

Our visit to Walnut Lawn was a gift from our daughter and family. We really enjoyed our time. The rooms are beautiful, clean and so quiet. Beth was a great host, informative, helpful and very nice. We hope to return in the future!

Great B&B, it’s very charming, the rooms are comfortable and spacious! The breakfast is absolutely delicious! The innkeeper is accommodating, extremely helpful and knowledgeable with that to do around the area, and just amazing to have a great conversation with! The property has a charming porch with a swing and garden! I would definitely recommend it for a relaxing getaway!

Amazing 3 course breakfast included!

Beth is a wonderful hostess -- we are lucky she is sharing her lovely home with travelers passing through the area. She does everything she can to make sure your questions are answered and your needs are met. The location is convenient; the area is quiet. The rooms are clean, comfortable and private. I so enjoyed myself, I stayed an extra night! I will definitely return again.

Walnut Lawn Ben and Breakfast is "tops". We love everything about it. We have been there year and after year and are greeted with the same gracious reception each time In the Spring of each year we can hear walnut lawn virtually starting to calling us back. The beautiful rooms, breakfasts with desert and the wrap around porch with the Amish horses and buggies going by each day makes this a perfect place for a relaxing get a way. Donna and Bob

Truly the BEST!!!!!

Our inn keeper thought of everything we would need in our room. Very comfortable B&B and nicely decorated. She was very in tune to dietary restrictions. If ever back in Lancaster, we will definitely stay here.

Loved our stay

Great location, far enough out to be very quiet, but close to amenities in Lancaster. Comfortable room, great breakfast and our innkeeper was so helpful.
