About

We are a small family-friendly farm B&B in a quiet country setting. We welcome you to enjoy the property including the pool, animals, and playground. We have a wrap around porch with rockers to enjoy the valley view, and deck and gazebo that overlook the pool. Watch your kids play in the fort, jump on the trampoline, and enjoy the swing set. We have horses, a Scottish Highland cow, pot belly pigs, chickens, ducks, Kiwi the parrot, Jasmine the German Shepherd, and a few cats around the property. Our breakfasts include farm fresh eggs, locally sourced breakfast meats, fresh fruits, tasty breads, and often made on the farm berry jams and apple butter. We will do our best to accommodate your specific tastes. Each room (Old Sailor, Picket Fence, Silk Road, and Tree Top) is uniquely designed. They have central a/c and heat, ceiling fans, and cable TV. Two have private baths, and two share a hall bath. The central loft has a seating area, desk, books, games, puzzles, and dvd library. We are conveniently located near Adamstown (5 miles), Morgantown (11 miles), Reading (15 miles) and Lancaster (28 miles). We are 1 hour from Harrisburg, 1.25 hours from Philadelphia, 1.5 hours from Baltimore, 2.5 hours from New York City and Washington D.C. For your convenience, some of us speak Spanish and ASL. Others offer services in hair styling and photography. As you can see, we can be more than a place to sleep and eat breakfast, but a place to relax and enjoy nature.

Peaceful Rural Setting for Relaxing Time Away

5 on October 30, 2017

This was the perfect place for a weekend away from the hurry and demands of every day life. Gracious but comfortable, the Dragonfly B&B delivered a lovely weekend away in rural PA not far from Lancaster and Ephrata, PA. The host family was present and welcoming. The rooms are pleasant and very quiet, well maintained and well equipped. The full breakfast was served with homemade breads and excellent coffee.I left Sunday morning feeling refreshed and ready to face the world again. What a perfect mini-holiday this ended up being!


Best getaway ever!

We were greeted upon arrival and given a tour of the home and property. Our room was very spacious, clean, and comfortable! We had cable tv, a lovely bathroom, and a gorgeous view of the cow and horses. We were given plenty of privacy but still felt welcomed to ask any questions or express concerns. There were two ADORABLE dogs that we couldn’t get enough of, but they won’t bother you if you’re not a dog person. There’s a little living room upstairs with movies, games, and books that would be perfect fun for a group of family or friends! The breakfast was amazing, fresh eggs straight from the property’s chickens, locally sourced bacon, jams, homemade muffins, and apple butter from the family’s apple trees! We had such a lovely chat over breakfast that really made us feel at home. Before we left we were invited to feed the horses and cow. The experience was one to remember and at such a great price! We will definitely be back and will suggest it to everyone looking for a peaceful countryside getaway. Thank you!!


WONDERFUL!

It took was lovely, overlooking the pool and fields of green. After relaxing with coffee on the porch, we enjoyed a delicious breakfast. Paul and Michelle joined us and conversation was fun and we found a common interest in music. We were then pleasantly entertained by their kids playing ukulele and piano! Great morning.


Great, family-friendly place to get away!

A lovely family weekend away!

My wife and I just needed to get out of the hustle and bustle of DC for a breather. My 35th birthday presented the ideal opportunity. The Dragonfly was the ideal setting. The pool, trampoline and play set kept my children occupied for hours. The horses provided them great viewing pleasure. And, we were just able to take a breather in a serene setting. The Bias's warmth and hospitality was incredible and we certainly plan to be back. This was a great value for money, family getaway.

About the innkeepers

We've raised 10 children in this house. A few years ago they started moving out. Since we have always enjoyed hosting family, friends, friends of friends, travelling missionaries, and others; we've had in mind for years to convert our home into a B&B. We've had folks from all over the country and the world stay with us, and we enjoy the variety of cultures and languages.
