great hospitality, great for pets

4.8 on May 08, 2018

Stayed here for our 2nd anniversary. We loved our time here. Innkeeper Pam was great - her cooking was phenomenal, and her hospitality was exceptional. She was very accommodating with our dog - who was allowed to stay in our room while we grabbed dinner. This was a big deal for us as a lot of B&Bs or hotels have strict rules about pets. The house is full of history. The room was clean and comfortable. And of course, their big-ole lab Quincy stole the show with his friendly entrances.

Anniversary Getaway

5 on May 06, 2018

Going away for the first time without our baby was a anxious trip in the beginning. As new parents we were so sad to leave our little girl, but knew that we needed this time to celebrate our second wedding anniversary. Staying at the B.F. Hiestand House was the best decision my husband could have made! We were in the cottage attached to the home and it was absolutely incredible. We were at complete peace and enjoyed the relaxing environment. Pam and Dallas are wonderful inn keepers and we would recommend this stay to anyone! Breakfast was absolutely delicious as well! xox

We truly enjoyed our stay at your Bed and Breakfast. Everything was wonderful. Really enjoyed the deep tub with the jets and the rainfall shower. Our room was very clean and I enjoyed the sunlit room in the early morning. The breakfast was very delicious from the blueberries with creamed topping and quiche with roasted potatoes & bacon done to perfection. We would recommend your B&B to our friends & family.

Me and my girlfriend stood for the weekend for my birthday and, wow, there's not enough words to say. Not only was the hospitality extraordinary, the rooms were kept up to the highest standards and they even met my food requests for my diet restrictions. Dallas and Pam (and Quincy) welcomed is with open arms and I encourage everyone to try it out for your own wonderful experience.

Hosts were so personable, breakfast was gourmet quality and more than enough. Great location to Lancaster & Gettysburg

Thanks Pam, Dallas, and Quincy!

4.0 on October 11, 2017

I selected BF Hiestand House for it's historical beauty, it's proximity to the river trail and Hershey, but mostly for Quincy, the house Labrador retriever. I knew I would miss my two dogs while traveling. Quincy helped me to feel at home as I had a nice soft friendly belly to rub at the end of the long touristy days! Pam and Dallas were very kind and helpful also. Jeff and I had pleasant stay and I would highly recommend it, particularly for dog lovers. Jenny Kimbrell Marietta, GA
