What a beautiful relaxing place. Pam, Dallas and Quincy are wonderful Inn Keepers. Marietta is a fantastic town with several great places to eat and many weekend nights you can find live music. You are close to many other local interests in Lancaster and York. If your interested in riding, walking or running the rails to trails, Hiestand House is just put the street from the trail. Pam and Dallas even have bikes for rent. Don't miss an opportunity to stay here you will love it!.

Thank you to Pam and Dallas for welcoming us into their beautiful home. Their gracious hospitality, beautifully appointed room with thoughtful amenities, and scrumptious breakfast made our retreat exactly what we needed to relax and refresh after a very busy fall. We will definitely be back!

We stayed for an extended weekend getaway in the Victoria room. The entire experience was top notch and relaxing. Pam and Dallas were very helpful with plenty of advice about what to do and the best places to eat. The breakfasts each morning were always different and delicious. If you are planning a stay in Lancaster I would highly recommend staying here!

My husband and I love to stay at B&B's in Lancaster. My daughter has been getting us Bed and Breakfast gift certificates for Christmas. We have been going to different ones depending on the area we are staying in. This weekend was my husband's birthday, so we decided to stay in Marietta, since we were never in that area before. We made a great choice by choosing BF Hiestand House. We had a lovely time. The innkeepers, Pam and Dallas were so accommodating. Great breakfast and our room had everything we needed and was very clean. The linens were the best. We rate this B&B at the top of our list!
5 on August 28, 2016
We spent one night in the sun porch room. It was very comfortable and had a deep whirlpool tub in the bathroom. Breakfast was delicious with plenty to eat and drink. Love the original details in the home. We would definitely stay there again.
5 on August 23, 2016
The room was charming, and I loved that it had it's own bathroom with a shower! The breakfast was outstanding, and Pam and Dallas are just really great people! It was one of the best experiences that we've had in a B&B!

Rooms have a great feel to them very warm and comfy atmosphere. Breakfast was a joy with our host as Pam is very down to earth and easygoing. Room was very clean and bed was comfortable all around nice place.

We have stayed at Hiestand House numerous times. This visit we were in town to visit family again but also to attend the Brew and Music festival in Marietta. As always Pam, Dallas and Quincy are excellent hosts. Pam makes the most delicious breakfasts and the homemade cookies in the evening are a special treat. The Brew and Music festival had 6 places with music from 3 pm - 11 pm within walking distance of the B&B but not so close that you are bothered by the music if you are not interested. We plan on coming back for the fall festival. Also,don't miss a chance to also sit on this beautiful front porch and have a coffee or a glass of wine. ENJOY!

We came to B.F. Hiestand House Bed and Breakfast for a full week for our honeymoon. It was absolutely wonderful!! Pam and Dallas made sure our stay was the best it could be! When we first arrived they explained all their amenities and made sure we had all the information about local places and things they thought we may be interested in. They also had a basket full of the local restaurants' menus so that we could scope out which restaurants fit our mood and taste. We stayed in the Cannon Cottage. We definitely recommend this to any couples looking for a getaway! It is private and cozy!! The bed is so incredibly comfortable! The room also includes an amazing whirlpool tub, separate shower, heated tiles, and towel warmer! We used these amenities just about every night and were so pleased! Pam and Dallas also asked us what time we would like our breakfast each day. They brought it right at that time and it was a full and wonderful breakfast! They also included robes that were so comfortable!! Their main house has brochures for different sites in the community, and Pam and Dallas will answer any other questions you could have! I would absolutely recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone coming through the area!

Excellent accommodations and hosts. We highly recommend a stay here.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed out stay at B.F. Hiestand House B&B. The owners Pam and Dallas were welcoming and accommodating in every way. The house is perfect for a B&B, spacious with many architectural details. Our room was comfortable and furnished beautifully. We could not wait to see what would be for breakfast each day. Pam loves to spoil her guests no matter the food restrictions.
5 on April 11, 2016
We absolutely enjoyed our stay at the inn. Dallas,and Pam were very gracious hosts.We felt as if we were visiting friends,and definitely plan to return in the summer. The food was fantastic,and we highly recommend this Inn to anyone looking for a clean,relaxing experience with two of the most down to earth host. Richard &Lillian

We stayed at BF Hiestand as part of a brief getaway during our trip to see the show at Sight and Sound in Lancaster. We stayed here with another couple that we were traveling with. At the time I set up the reservation, I didn't realize that the other couple had never stayed at a B & B before. Consequently, I was a bit nervous for them as I had not stayed at BF Hiestand before. I really wanted their first experience to be special. Well I quickly found out that I had nothing to fear. We were greeted immediately by Dallas and he showed us around the house and our rooms. We were immediately impressed as we walked across the large covered porch and into the house. The large open entry and adjoining rooms boasted beautiful old architecture and lovely décor. We headed up to our spacious rooms that were also roomy and nicely appointed. Our room even had a small fridge stocked with water and soda. The candy by the bedside was a nice touch too! After getting settled in our rooms we came down to the siting area where we chatted with Dallas about the house and history, before we had to leave for the show. While visiting, Pam kindly served us fresh brownies she had made. We returned for a restful night's sleep and came down to breakfast the next morning. We were greeted by Pam and Quincy and served breakfast in the beautiful dining room with it's stained glass windows and lovely woodwork. Breakfast was delicious and ample. After enjoying good fellowship over breakfast we prepared to leave. Even though Pam and Dallas had a large group coming in later that day they did not rush us at all to leave. Overall it was a wonderful experience and our first time B & B friends said several times that they would certainly look at doing B & B's again. A couple final points about BF Hiestand that made it a perfect spot for us was that it allowed dogs (we have a mini poodle) and 1 night stays. Both of these are hard to find for these types of accommodations.

We stayed at BF Hiestand with another couple who had never stayed at a B & B before. We did not realize that when we made the reservations, so I was concerned about how the experience would be since we had not stayed at BF Hiestand before. Well any concerns I had were quickly eliminated as we were greeted by Dallas who showed us in and around. We were immediately taken with the architecture and décor of the entry and adjoining rooms. The bedrooms were spacious and well decorated and stocked. The room we stayed in even had a refrigerator stocked with water and soda. A nice touch along with the bedside candy! The breakfast in the beautiful dining area was unique and delicious. Pam was an excellent hostess and kept making sure we didn't need anything. Two final points that made this a great stay was the fact that they allow dogs (we have a mini poodle) and that they allow 1 night stays which met our schedule perfectly. We would certainly stay here again if the opportunity presented itself.
4.6 on March 01, 2016
We have stayed numerous times at the BF Hiestand House. Pam, Dallas and Quincy are great innkeepers that always make you feel most welcome. Pam makes the most delicious and filling breakfasts. The Cannon cottage is a very cozy and romantic spot. Stay here you can't go wrong with any of the rooms. Don't miss an opportunity to take some time to sit on their amazing front porch. Even in a downpour you will be nice and cozy.

We really enjoyed our stay! Such a beautiful house, very clean, beautifully decorated, great food & very nice people!
3.4 on October 12, 2015
We have been visiting Lancaster the last six years to do our Christmas shopping and made a habit of trying different B&B's. Our third year, we chose BF Hiestand House and we haven't gone anywhere else since then. Pam and Dallas are amazing and they don't forget you! We enjoy sitting with them at breakfast and learning about the different activities that are around to do. Pam takes the extra time to get you directions to really neat places to visit as well as making your reservations for you for dinner. I can't say enough about their home and I look forward to staying with them every November. Quincy is a keeper too!
5 on September 16, 2015
Pam, Dallas and Quincy are wonderful hosts. Every breakfast was fantastic. Our room, the Susquehanna Room, was beautifully decorated. When we are in the southwestern region of PA, this is by far the best place to stay. We had an absolutely amazing time.
5 on September 16, 2015
We stayed here to celebrate a friend's birthday and a girl's weekend. The staff were so thoughtful and sweet. We felt right at home. They were a wealth of knowledge about the house and fun things to do locally.
4.6 on August 23, 2015
A nice, friendly and lovely place. Pam is very helpful and knowledgable person and very interesting to talk with. Tries to make you feel home and to accomodate your needs.
5 on August 17, 2015
Pam and Dallas are terrific hosts, and they do a delightful job of keeping up this beautiful, old home on the Susquehanna River. The food is top notch and the living, dining and bed rooms are well-furnished. To our pleasant surprise, Pam and Dallas also maintain an impressive library of DVDs for their guests. McCleary's - walking distance into Marietta - had great food and fun atmosphere. Shanks is also a must, at least for a couple drinks. Highly recommended!
4.2 on August 13, 2015
Our stay at the BF Hiestand House B&B was most enjoyable . The hosts Pam and Dallas were very friendly and the breakfast was delicious. Its location to other events was perfect.

The room was cozy and comfortable. Pam was extremely accommodating to my husband's gluten allergy and went out of her way to make sure he had a full breakfast and snack. We will definitely be staying here again!
4.6 on May 19, 2015
A friend and I traveled to B.F. Hiestand House in Marietta for an afternoon winery tour and an overnight stay. Dallas was a wonderful host for the winery tour, and truly took his lead from us with the pace. It was a beautiful day with beautiful wineries. Dallas and Pam are both wonderful hosts, and we definitely enjoyed our visit. This Victoria room was super comfortable and we hardly knew we were sharing a house once we were behind closed doors. I hope you would enjoy your experience as much as I did!
5 on April 22, 2015
The BF Hiestand House is a great stay! The house is in great shape and retains many of the original design features. The rooms superbly decorated. The service provided by Pam and Dallas is excellent. They are terrific hosts! We would definitely stay here again, and look forward to coming back. We stayed in the Susquehanna room.
5 on March 28, 2015
We stayed over a weekend and were very pleased with the innkeepers, the room, and the breakfast. Would definitely recommend it!
4.6 on February 20, 2015
I set my parents up with reservation's for St. Valentines Day weekend. When they came home, they could not stop bragging about the amazing time and the treatment they recieved. Thank you so much for spoiling my parents. I will be coming to see this beautiful place for myself soon.
5 on February 20, 2015
The Hiestand House is everything we wanted in a B&B, and more. Pam and Dallas are terrific hosts - the breakfasts were delicious, the home is quiet and welcoming. After a two-night stay, we were refreshed and well rested. We recommend the BF Hiestand House - you won't be disappointed.
5 on February 11, 2015
My wife and I stayed t the BF Hiestand February 6th-8th and had a wonderful time. Pam and Dallas were wonderful hosts and the breakfast was amazing. We are hoping to book another stay during the summer because there seems to be more activities open then during the winter months. I would definitely recommend their B&B to anyone.
5 on February 04, 2015
After the hustle and bustle of the holidays my husband and I needed a few days of peace and serenity. We chose the Suite as we always do if its available, its our personal favorite, my husband likes the separate TV room and I love the large jacuzzi. When you walk into the B&B, whether its your first time or your 7th as it was for us, and as it will be for each and every return trip, you are warmly greeted by Pam and Dallas the Innkeepers as well as Quincy their dog. Pam will ask if you have any dietary restrictions, as well as what time you would like to eat breakfast, which I might add not all B&B's do. Most B&B's (and I have been to many) usually tell you what time breakfast is and give you a short time frame; this sets BF Hiestand House apart from the others. Pam will show you to your room, show you how to use the TV, DVR, etc., ask if you need anything, need directions, have questions or concerns and then leave you to get settled. The suite comes with a small refrigerator stocked with soda, both regular and diet and water, and there is more water in the refrigerator in the hall. If you need ideas for a place to eat, a place to visit or just to shop Pam is always ready to make suggestions and even give you a map and mark the route for you. The beds and bedding are amazing, the sheets are the softest ever and you just get lost in the tranquility of the comfort. The breakfasts are second to none, every day is different and oh so delicious and there is always plenty of juice, coffee and so many teas that you will have a hard time choosing one. You will never be disappointed staying at BF Hiestand House, trust me, they know what they are doing and they do it well. Their warmth and hospitality, along with the cooking and baking, yes Pam makes all her own muffins, are second to none!

Everything was perfect!
4.6 on November 15, 2014
We spent just the one evening here, however the room and hosts were excellent. Our hosts helped us find a nice place to eat and in the morning pointed us in the right direction for some hiking trails. The breakfast they made up was extra delicious. All and all we would definitely come back. Pam and Dallas are great hosts. My only complaint is that I was hoping for a little more rural of an environment, whereas this B&B is located more in a historic downtown area.
5 on October 07, 2014
Comfy ,and the best breakfast is Pa. These hosts Pam and Dallas are our favorites Can't wait to return...
5 on October 05, 2014
Loved being taken care of instead of being the caretaker. Breakfast was wonderful. Pam really goes all out for breakfast.Room was elegant with a comfortable bed with very nice sheets and blankets. Decor was very nice and having a Anniversary cake waiting for us when we walked into the room was a very nice touch. Pam held up my husband downstairs so I could surprise him with rose petals on the bed and a basket with champagne and chocolates and electric tea lights around the room.He absolutely loved it. Thank you Pam. Dallas took us on a vineyard tour of four vineyards. He was funny and charming and engaged us with conversation the whole time. We had a good time with him.Loved all the goodies we received on the second vineyard provided by Dallas. They had plenty of good suggestions of places to go and even offered to make reservations for us and drive us to and from different places. We felt taken care of by this lovely couple and would definitely go back and suggest everyone give it a try. Place was very clean and decor was very nice.

My newlywed wife and I very much enjoyed our stay! The Bed and Breakfast is lovely. They were undergoing some repairs while we were there, but we were never disturbed. Dallas and Pam are just the friendliest people you could ever meet! Dallas introduced me to a local beer, and gave us a gift card for a nearby restaurant. We hope to visit again soon.
5 on May 05, 2014
My husband & I live in the Phila area and wanted to get away, stay local to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Our visit here by far has been better than any of the many B&B's we have been to. Pam & Dallas hospitality is superior. Pampering and feeling right at home. They have paid special attention to the smallest details to make our stay the best ever. Excellent customer service and décor and cleanliness impeccable! Pam went out of hear way to make and serve a gluten free breakfast that was delicious! 5 STARS! And, enjoy your stay here you made the right choice! Candy & Freddie Pack

My husband and I had a lovely weekend at the BF Hiestand House B&B. I have very high expectations. It was everything a B&B stay should be. I have come to expect clean, comfortable, and beautifully decorated B&B's. We enjoyed the special two person shower in the Susquehanna room. Breakfast was delicious. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. There were many niceties: scented soap, chocolates, soft sheets, white noise machine, local info, and more.
5 on April 27, 2014
We stayed at the B&B this past weekend. It was our first time staying at a B&B and we would most certainly do it again; especially one owned by Dallas and Pam. First and foremost, Pam can cook the heck out of some food!!! Both our meals were top notch. Her husband Dallas was so helpful in planing day trips and restaurants to visit. The rooms were very clean, the house was beautiful and had great history. Their BIG 120 pound lab Quincy was friendly and sweet. I would rate the whole experience a 10 of 10. They made B&B fans of us! Thanks for making our anniversary trip a great experience!!
Thank you so very much for your kind words! We really enjoyed meeting you and are so happy your first B&B experience was a good one. B&B's are very diverse and are a "better way to stay"! Glad you want to try another some day!

My husband and I were looking for a special place to stay on our wedding night before we left for our honeymoon. I searched many local B&B's and couldn't find what we were looking for until I came up B. F. Hiestand. We were able to book the Cannon Cottage, which gave us the privacy and comfort we were looking for. Pam and Dallas were wonderful hosts, we had a very late check-in and they were super accommodating and we had the option to eat our delicious breakfast in the privacy of our cottage which was perfect! The cottage was well appointed and had the most comfortable bed and sheets. The spa shower, tub and heated floor were such a nice treat as well! Pam was so gracious and gave us a special gift when we left, she was so sweet! We had a such wonderful stay at B.F. Hiestand and will always cherish the time that we spent there! If you are looking for a welcoming, inviting and beautiful place to stay while in Lancaster country, this is it!
5 on April 01, 2013
A friend and I stayed in the Cannon Cottage for 3 nights. Monday, March 25th and it was lovely. The bed was so comfortable, the whirlpool so relaxing and the breakfast was so very good. The innkeepers made you feel as if you were family and were so helpful with suggestions on what to do, etc. The high point was Quincy, the family's pet fetching the morning newspaper. This is my 3rd trip to this B&B and already planning to visit again in June or July.
5 on March 31, 2013
A beautiful home with wonderful, helpful hosts. The house was warmly decorated, clean, and welcoming. The sheets, towels, and rainforest shower were amazing. Pam's breakfasts were delicious and satisfying. The location provided easy access to a winery, candy factory, and several impressive antique shops, as well as other historical homes to visit. We definitely plan to visit again!
5 on March 29, 2013
I arrived with my friend on Monday, March 25th to spend 4 days shopping, relaxing and just to have a great time. We both enjoyed spending some time talking to Pam and Dallas. This has been my third trip to the B&B and I they both make you feel like you are family. After a wonderful breakfast, Quincy would fetch the newspaper at the end of the driveway and bring it back to Dallas.. He is a great addition to the B&B also. We are already planning another trip and can't wait to see the Fritz Family. Love them all. Peggy

I arrived at the Cannan Cottage on 3/25/2013 and it was the most warm and cozy cottage I ever stayed in, the main house were we had breakfast was so lovely and the innkeepers made my stay feel like home. The food was delicious. Already planning another trip. Deb H.
5 on March 25, 2013
We stayed at the B.F Hiestand House B & B this past weekend - in the Vanderslice Suite. The house was totally charming. Beautifully appointed and decorated as if walking back into the era. Pam, Dallas and Quincy were excellent hosts. We most definitely will stop by for a stay again in the future.
5 on March 20, 2013
Lovely room, great location, wonderful innkeepers. Will return again soon.
4.4 on January 28, 2013
My fiance and I stayed Friday through Sunday at this B&B. The owners could not have been more welcoming or informative, and their dog, Quincy, was wonderful. We stayed in the Susquehanna Room, and while the pictures on the internet made it seem a bit bigger than real life, it was comfortable and clean. The pillows and bed were VERY comfortable, with both a plush pillow and a firm pillow. The sheets were luxurious, like nothing I've ever slept on. Breakfast was delicious both days, and there were many take-out menus available for local restaurants and eateries.
5 on October 15, 2012
B.F. Hiestand house was our first B&B experience, we have gone on to use other B&B's as a result. We have returned twice since our first time, each for about 7-8 days. We have stayed in 3 different rooms, and each was better than the last. Hiestand is centrally located in the Amish country, and a great anchor point for exploring the countryside. I wish Pam would open her own restaurant, and Dallas's laugh is contagious. If you're not a dog lover, you will be when you leave. Ralph & Sarah
5 on October 11, 2012
We spent 2 nights at this beautiful house. We spent time in the afternoon sipping wine and relaxing on the lovely front porch. The beds were comfortable and the sheets were incredible. Pam and Dallas are great hosts. They are very helpful made great suggestions for sightseeing and restaurants. Breakfast was delicious!! It was great that the time was flexible. Pam baked wonderful treats each afternoon along with coffee or tea. A very enjoyable weekend!!
5 on August 21, 2012
This was our second time here. We absolutely loved this B&B.. The ownwers are very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back.
5 on July 03, 2012
My boyfriend and I stayed here recently when he surprised me with a weekend away from the city. We loved everything about this place, it's very clean and charming, the innkeepers were super helpful and friendly, and their dog Quincy was adorable. They even reserved a dinner for us with a local Amish family, which was almost as delicious as the breakfast we enjoyed here in the morning. We will definitely be back soon!
4.4 on July 02, 2012
We had a wonderful getaway at the B.F. Hiestand House Bed & Breakfast in Marietts. Pam and Dallas made you feel like you were a part of the family. The food was outstanding. We came home from our two day escape feeling refreshed and renewed. Thank you Pam and Dallas for being an importnat part of that expereince.
5 on June 20, 2012
I go to the Spa at the Hotel Hershey every year for my birthday. I stay at a different bed and breakfast every time and this year I picked a winner! My stay at the B.F. Hiestand House was very enjoyable. The bed was nice and comfortable (especially the sheets!), the breakfast was great, and the innkeepers (owners) were very nice! I especially enjoyed Quincy, the very big, very friendly lab! I'm glad that I picked this b and b and will be back to stay again!
3.8 on June 20, 2012
Innkeepers are very friendly. Home is beautiful. Food was wonderful. The only downside is that it is on a major road, so if you are not use to traffic noise you may not enjoy it.
5 on May 08, 2012
A beautiful house...A comfortable bed...A delicious breakfast...and hosts that made us feel at home all combined to make our stay at B.F. Hiestand outstanding. The house affords a relaxed setting and a feel of hospitality. Our favorite part was being able to sit down with our hosts and enjoy a conversation--as if we were old friends. Pam's orange muffins are outstanding and she shared the recipe. I made them for my church family and they loved them too. If you decide to stay at B.F. Hiestand House Bed and Breakfast, you won't be disappointed.
5 on April 05, 2012
My husband and I returned to B.F. Hiestand House for our 5th or 6th time, I lost count. This trip was to go to the Uncork York / Mason Dixon Wine Tour. Once again we had a fabulous stay. My sister, who had never stayed at a bed and breakfast came along with us and she loved it. Pam and Dallas are such great hosts, always ready to make a suggestion as to where to eat, what to see, or just where to go to enjoy a beautiful day. Pam's breakfasts are second to none, we had her french toast for the first time and I think the next time we go, which we will, I might just request for some more. I have in the past requested her broiled blueberries, which are amazing, dont be fooled by the name. And last but certainly not least is their dog Quincy, who is always there to great you upon your arrival, your departure and every time you come and go.... he is a true innkeeper. We love the B.F. Hiestand House and will be back in the summer for the Nissley summer concerts. You will not be disappointed, trust me.
5 on March 28, 2012
We had a great time, everything was lovely. Would highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone. Food was delicious and we were very warmly welcomed. Much to do and see in the area. We will be going back.
5 on March 27, 2012
Pam and Dallas were gracious hosts, accommodating some serious dietary limitations in a very tasty and thoughtful way. The cottage was beautiful, clean, private, and restful. Definitely a place we'd recommend to our friends. Bring your bike! Thanks again for a great stay!
5 on March 27, 2012
My wife Denise and I stayed at the B.F. Hiestand House in March 2012. This was are first B & B experience. Pam & Dallas Fritz along with Quincy made our stay a memory that neither one of us will ever forget. The hospitality these Innkeepers displayed made us feel as though we were at home (without all the drama...lol...). We were helped with everything we needed even including tickets to the Sight & Sound theatre which were just added to our bill. For anyone looking to enjoy a B & B experience in the Marietta, Pennsylvania area my wife and I highly recommend the B.F. Hiestand House. We stayed in the Vanderslice suite which was exceptional. This beautilful home has a lot of history which just adds to the charm. Dallas & Pam certanily made a good choice when they decided to become Innkeepers. Best wishes to Pam, Dallas & Quincy always from Mark & Denise Troyer.

Due to the fact that I was traveling from more than 4 hours away, I made sure to make contact with Pam and advise here I was running late. Pam was extremely accomodating with my check-in, because it was close to 10:00 pm. She told me that if it was the case that I would be getting there late, that she would leave the door to the cottage open for me, and we could speak in the morning. Luckily, I arrived sooner, and to my surprise, found this charming, rustic B & B, right off the main road. No sooner did I walk into the front door, that I was greeted by a LARGE sweet dog named Quincy, who proceeded to give me his approval, by sniffing me and then going back to his large LL Bean bed. Pam and Dallas were terrific hosts. I felt from the moment I walked in , it was a big family. Whether talking to Pam or Dallas, or any of the guests, it was warm and friendly. The cottage was wonderful. All the amenities were extremely comfortable. The whirpool, the bed, and most of all the shower, were wonderful. Breakfast in the cottage was exemplary. All fresh, nothing frozen. The pumpkin/cranberry muffins were delicious. I can only see one drawback of the cottage. Since it is not recessed away from the driveway, you can hear the comings and goings of the other guests. I would happily recommend staying there to anyone who enjoys a family-style environment where the owners, are terrific, and the rooms are wonderful. I look forward to seeing Pam and Dallas again in the near future. Booking a room for a week next time. :) A

My husband and I stay at B.F. Hiestand House in October 2011. Pam and Dallas are very gracious hosts, friendly and helpful with local dinning selections. We stayed in the Victoria Room and it was just as pictured. Although this was our first stay with Pam and Dallas they made us feel as welcomed old friends. We would definitely stay again at this wonderful B&B.

Our short vacation stay was a wonderful experience.We are looking forward to going back to this beautiful B and B.

I found this B&B online by reading the reviews... This B&B did not disappoint! My husband and I had such a wonderful weekend staying here. We did not want to leave. The inn keepers Pam and Dallas were amazing! They are so nice and their home is beautiful. We stayed in the Cannon Cottage, the cottage had every amenity you could have asked for in a luxury room! The bed was soooo comfortable and the sheets.... well I bought a set! The bathroom had a huge jetted tub and a shower I hope to one day duplicate in my own home! There are too many items we loved to list them all! Pam your breakfast was to die for! I keep thinking about the blueberry french toast.. YUMMY! We can't wait until our next romantic weekend away when we can stay again. Thank you for making our weekend a special one... Katie and Greg

We were pampered to the hilt, and we enjoyed every thing about it. It was like taking home with us.We were given privacy yet if we needed anything we got more than we asked. We plan on going back.

Innkeepers very informal but made you feel right at home including their dog! Would recommend this inn to all who enjoy this type of atmosphere as opposed to a hotel.

My wife and I stayed at BF Hiestand's the weekend of June 4, 2011. After over 20 years of annual visits to various B and B's in the Lancaster area, our stay at BF Hiestand's with Pam and Dallas was the best. The location was superb, the room exquisite, the food scrumptious, and Pam and Dallas very friendly and accommodating. After 20 years of "looking around," we've finally found our home away from home. Everything was outstanding. Thank you Pam and Dallas. We'll be back! Sincerely, Bill and Nancy Nealon

Pam and Dallas were such a friendly and helpful couple. The house is beautiful and well-maintained and the rooms are delightful. We enjoyed our stay with them and if we return to the area will certainly book again. Several of the guests make weekend visits to the area often and always return because of the location, service and delightful rooms.

This grand old house is one of those museums of the past. A bit frayed in places and a slice of grandma's attic in the public rooms with great potential for elegance everywhere. She's a big ship for upkeep and in places needs a good scrub, mopping and polishing. If you can look past these things, it's a remarkable old home on the far edge of the charming historic town of Marietta. It sits on the corner of a major throughfare, so can be a bit noisy during traffic hours.

We recently stayed here, and had an excellent, relaxing weekend. The room was very nice, and Pam and Dallas are very warm and welcoming, and offered a lot of assistance in answering questions about the area. We stayed here for two nights, and were treated to Pam's breakfasts twice... WOW! I would definitely recommend staying at this B&B!

It has been my pleasure to stay there several times recently due to business travel. It is truly comfortable and very clean and I am enjoying trying out the different rooms. This B & B is a gem!

This was our first B & B experience. We booked the Vanderslice Suite for a 4 night stay. We totally enjoyed everything about our stay. Great breakfast, relaxing whirlpool, comfortable bed and much, much more, and of course meeting our hosts, Pam and Dallas and their grandson Charlie and puppy Quincy. Not only were they cordial, they made you feel so welcome in their home. My husband and I feel as if we made new friends. We are hoping to come visit again in the fall, so Pam, get those blueberries ready.

This was our second stay in the Vanderslice Suite, and it was great. The Suite it perfect for an extended stay because it has a separate sitting room with a library, a TV, and DVD player, in addition to the spacious bedroom. Many nice touches including plush bathrobes and towels, luxurious bed linens, and a mini fridge. The food is excellent, and Pam and Dallas are great hosts. Enjoy!

Dallas, Pam, and Quincy were great hosts. The breakfasts were delicious and filling. The rooms were beautiful. The area offers shopping at the Outlets. You are only a short drive from Gettysburg. Definitely will be staying there again. Lots of great Pubs in the area. They had menus for the local dining establishments.

Dallas and Pam Fritz are excellent hosts in their beautiful home along the Susquehanna River. We had the Victoria Room and the Susquehanna Room. Both were well appointed with gorgeous furniture and very comfortable beds, and the Susquehanna Room had the most decadent shower any of us had ever experienced while traveling. The inn is also child-friendly, with sound machines in each room (also good to drown out the trains that run along the river) and plenty of places for little legs to run. Though we did not partake, the Fritzes also had hundreds of DVDs for guests to borrow. We look forward to staying BF Hiestand House again next spring!

The B. F. Hiestand house was wonderful. We stayed in the Vanderslice suite, which had a beautiful bedroom and a sitting/TV room as well. The room was very clean and well-decorated. We arrived somewhat late in the evening but Dallas, the owner, was very willing to stay around a little late and get us the key, etc. Breakfast was amazing, with an egg souffle, and blueberries with cream and caramelized sugar on top. And all the guests had a nice conversation over breakfast, along with the owners.

We were looking for a much needed getaway to celebrate our 32nd wedding anaversary. We spent considerable time looking at the various B & B's in Lancaster County and after reading countless reviews we selected the B F Hiestand House. We made a good choice. We stayed in the Cannon Cottage and found it exactly as advertised. When we arrived we were greeted by Pam and Quincy, their 9 month old Lab. Pam was very friendly and hospitible from the beginning. During our stay we felt as though we were greeted as friends and treated as family by both Pam and Dallas. We had not been to this area in several years and relied on Pam's knowledge of the area to help us decide what to see and when and she was totally prepared. She had a supply of pamphlets and maps to show us the best route to where we wanted to go. The suggestion of a fine dining restraunt for our anaversary dinner was spot on. Breakfast each morning began with fresh fruit and a hot entree. My wife's only regret is that she forgot to ask for the rescipie for the baked oatmeal. As part of our stay we scheduled massages in our room. Connie, the massage therapist was outstanding and we highly recommend this if you stay here. If there was one drawback it is that some of the areas we wanted to visit were a bit of a drive however Pam and Dallas' hospitality more than made up for that. All in all we had an excellent vacation and we would recommend this B & B to our friends and family.

This was the first B&B experience for my husband and I. The house was amazing, very clean, room was better than my expectations. Pam and Dallas were gracious hosts, very friendly, knowledgable, and accomodating. We were very pleased with the entire visit. Will definitely recommend to others and will return for another visit.

Kim & Dallas are wonderful hosts who think of the little things that make a stay enjoyable. Pitcher of water, Wine bottle opener, wine glasses were already in the room. Thick plush towels and wonderful linens were very comforting. Having the Sun Porch room with your own private balcony was fantastic and made for an enyoable evening just relaxing! Quincy is a wonderful dog and nothing can make you feel as welcome into the home as he does. The breakfasts were delicious and they made sure to ask if there was anything special you needed or wanted! We hightly recommend and will return to this wonderful home again!

These accommodations were a gift from our daughter. My wife & I had a very pleasant stay in a very relaxed environment of this mature old home. Breakfast was very unique - and delicious. It was interesting to learn about the history behind this residence. This area of Pennsylvania is rich in history. Unbeknown to our hosts, their (big) puppy came upstairs and scratched on our door a few minutes before our arranged breakfast time; his timing was humorously appropriate.

I took my husband to the B.F. Hiestand House Bed and Breakfast to celebrate his birthday and his achievement of receiving his Associates Degree....Dean's list no less. This was our first experience with a bed and breakfast and I can tell you, it won't be our last. Pam and Dallas were so very kind and made us feel welcomed. The room was immaculate, the food was wonderful and the conversations GREAT! We felt part of a great big happy family. I highly recommend that you stay here. We certainly will visit again. Thank you Pam and Dallas for making our weekend spectacular! Michael and Tammy Hollidaysburg, PA

As City Slickers it was wonderful to sit and do nothin in a very relaxing comfortable environment. The house was very warm and inviting, the room was nicely decorated mixing to old and the new. I absolutely love this place and can't wait to come back.

I stayed at the B.F. Hiestand House B&B in November of 2009, and it was beautiful. It was very relaxing, experienced great service, and was surrounded by wonderful people. Pam & Dallas are very nice, treat you like family, and accommodate their guests to the best of their abilities. I look forward to staying there again in the future. I would highly recommend this quaint B&B to everyone!

This was our first time at a B&B and we couldn't have asked for a better experience. The breakfast was amazing! Pam and Dallas were very friendly and helpful in finding us a great place to eat dinner. When we returned from dinner Pam had chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us in our room. She hand dipped them herself! We look forward to visiting again this coming March!

We stayed in the cottage. Enough room to fit our dogs kennel in the room, very clean, great tub, and shower. It was cozy with the fireplace. Food was delicious and Pam was so wonderful to cater to our dietary needs. Dallas and Pam helped with our dinner reservations, even when we wanted to take the dog with us. They had coffee and tea available all day. Wonderful place to stay, thank you!!

I highly recommend staying here and enjoying the wonders of Lancaster County! Antiqueing is very close by!!

Walking to the smell of lemon pound cake baking for breakfast made me give up Atkins dieting for the weekend. A huge Sunday breakfast, after morning coffee on the porch was lovely. Pretty rooms, good DVD selection made family movie night fun!

The Hiestand House is an exceptionally beautiful Victorian style home. We were attracted by it after visiting thier website, but it is far more impressive in person. It is all that you could want in a B&B. All rooms in this B&B are ellegant and distinct. My wife and I were on what has become an annual weekend anniversary B&B getaway. Our stay was puntuated by the friendly and informative interaction with our host's Pam and Dallas. The breakfasts were excellant .By the time we left, we felt as though they were a part of our family. 'Mr. Biggs', (the family dog) was also a very friendly host! We just loved it, and plan on re-visiting again in the near future. If you are looking for a relaxing get-away in a friendly atmosphere, with elegant decor, book a visit, you will not be disappointed.

My wife and I and a another couple met and stayed at the B.F. Hiestand House Victorian B&B recently. After searching several B&Bs in the Lancaster area, this was one of the few to accept a one night booking. Most others have a policy for a minimum of 2 nights. Pam & Dallas and Mr. Biggs, the dog all made us feel like part of the family. They are wonderful hosts. The breakfast was delicious. The Hiestand house is beautifully furnished with period furniture and antiques. We were in the Sun Porch and the other couple were in the Blakemore room. Pam & Dallas are very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and attractions. We plan on visiting very soon.

My husband and I are going back for our second stay at B.F. Hiestand House Bed & Breakfast. We just loved it the first time and knew we would be back. We stayed in the Suite the first time and booked it this time as well. Pam and Dallas are like family and make you feel like you are part of the family. The breakfasts were amazing. We also took advantage of a local concert and Pam packed a picnic basket that could have fed everyone at the concert. I recommend the B.F. Hiestand House Bed & Breakfast to everyone. By the way, Mr. Biggs (the family dog) is at the door to greet you every day. Definitely book a visit, you will not be disappointed.

The Hiestand House is a very beautiful Victorian style home. This was our second stay and Pam and Dallas made us feel like we were part of their family. We enjoyed Pam's breakfasts and the "Suite" was absolutely unbelievably beautiful. We highly recommend that you stay with Pam and Dallas. We'll be back!

The Hiestand House is extremely beautiful and very comfortable! Pam and Dallas are very fine innkeepers, and we felt very much a part of the family while there. Mr. Biggs helped to soothe us, since our trip was to be a "dog-loss" therapy weekend. The breakfasts were amazing, and their knowledge of the area wonderful!
