We'll be back!

4.8 on December 10, 2016

We had a wonderful time! We spent two nights here on our honeymoon thirteen years ago. Even though the inn has changed hands since then, it was just like we remembered. Thanks so much!

Wonder Stay

5 on November 17, 2016

Cozy bedroom, wonderful hosts, amazing breakfast!

We love this B&B

3.8 on November 13, 2016

We stay here often and are never disappointed. Friendly hosts, great breakfasts, pretty rooms.

Great place to stay.

4.6 on November 13, 2016

While visiting my mother in Pennsylvania in October, I took her on a mini vacation to explore the Amish country and historic Philadelphia. I had selected this Inn from the many advertised online because of the well presented website and its central location to our destinations. My choice proved to be a winner! Chris and Jim were great hosts! We were made to feel very comfortable from the outset. The breakfasts were awesome, from the pear sorbet to the apple stuffed French toast and the homemade granola they serve is wonderful - like none you've ever tasted (and I'm not a granola fan) YUM! The Inn is very pleasant with several cozy common areas for socializing, including a sitting area by a fountain in the garden which overlooks Pennsylvania farm lands. On the way to our room, Chris showed us some of the other unoccupied rooms and invited us to look around at our leisure (which we did :) The rooms are very cozy and decorated with lovely antique pieces. Each bed is covered with a beautiful quilt, adding to the charming atmosphere of this very historic setting. We enjoyed our stay immensely. I would recommend this Inn to anyone looking for a place to relax and feel comfortable while enjoying a setting with generous amounts of character. Thank you, Jim and Chris!

Wonderful stay

4.6 on October 13, 2016

A great place to stay in the heart of Amish country. Jim and Chris make you feel right at home and provide helpful information for making the most of your visit. I will definitely be back!

A wonderful place to get away

5 on October 10, 2016

Feels like a second home, Chris and Jim are great hosts and are very welcoming. Looking forward to next time.

Never disappointed

4.8 on October 03, 2016

Even though Chris was out of town (missed you), Jim never missed a beat! His conversation was engaging and he knocked breakfast out of the park! The Amish family dinner he arranged with David and Naomi and their children was incredible! We expect to continue to be repeat boarders in the future and highly recommend Church town B&B to anyone staying over in the Lancaster PA area.

Our Amish Vacation

5 on September 30, 2016

My family and I wanted to go back in time to visit the Amish way of life. We enjoyed our experience immensely and hope to return during the fall or winter season. Our accommodations were very comfortable, the weather was nice, and the food was great!

Home Sweet Inn

4.8 on September 06, 2016

Another long weekend at our favorite place on earth. Blue skies green fields and super friendly people. Have book more than a dozen times in the last few years and it just gets better. Beautiful rooms great food and you meet the best guests from around the globe. This weekend learned hands on how to can peaches..yummy. I will continue to recommend this inn all the very special people I know. Thanks Farr family for a truly great experience. The Jersey Girls No onsite dining but the recommendation for dining are great

Covered Bridge Cottage

4.4 on August 15, 2016

My husband and I have stay several times at the Inn, but this time we wanted to do something different. We stayed at Covered Bridge Cottage for two night and can't wait to go back with our son and two grandkids. The cottage was very clean and most importantant, the bed was confortable and the air condition perfect. Thank you Jim and Chris for inviting us for breakfast on our last day. We loved it!¿¿ There is no onsite dinner that's why my rating was ok.

Keep coming back!

5 on August 10, 2016

We have been thee before and we always enjoy our stay. Chris and Jim make us feel at home and have great advice on where to go. The sit down with other guests are always a treat to hear from others on what thewy are doing in Lancaster County. Thank you for everything!

Poole Forge Cottage

3.8 on August 08, 2016

We rented the cottage at Poole Forge for our wedding weekend, as we were getting married at the park. The cottage served as our home away from home and also as an ideal place for myself and my bridesmaids to get ready. The cottage is so clean, quaint, and simply beautiful! I clicked 1 star for onsite dining because there is no onsite dining at this location and we did not take advantage of the onsite dining at the Churchtown Inn itself. Our only complaint is that the bed is horribly uncomfortable. In fact, we did not sleep either night we were there due to the uncomfortable bed. It squeaked with every breath we took due to the metal springs in the mattress and it was very hard and lumpy. Aside from this, we loved the cottage and it served our purpose well. Just wish we could have gotten some sleep for our big day.

Innkeeper Response
Hello folks, Thank you for your kind review. We love being able to make the Covered Bridge Cottage available for visitors to our area and folks getting married in the Park. We are so sorry that we didn’t know about the squeaking box spring and that you did not get a comfortable night’s sleep. I would have gladly tried to resolve your problem had I known; either by having you stay here at the Inn or attempting to fix the bed somehow. We are replacing the box spring, and will be adding a removable thick pillow topper to the mattress this week. We hope you will come back sometime and visit us here at the Inn or at the cottage. Warmly, Chris

Wonderful stay in the Farmview Cottage!

5 on August 07, 2016

Our family of four stayed in the Farmview Cottage for two nights. The cottage is clean and cozy. It provided ample space for 2 adults and a 16 and 12 year old. Since we didn't stay at the inn, breakfast was not included, but we decided to purchase it each morning, and that was an excellent decision. Everything was absolutely delicious and there was plenty of it! Innkeepers, Jim and Chris are very kind and accommodating. They want your stay to be the best it can be. I would definitely stay here again!

Simply great!!!

4.6 on August 04, 2016

Lovely rooms, interesting conversation, delicious breakfast, anytime again


5 on May 31, 2016

Couldn't ask for a better getaway weekend. Chris and Jim make you feel like family from the phone call on. Chris prepares the best gourmet breakfasts and they are all described in detail by Jim who serves them. Jim also has great knowledge of the history of the area and is interesting to chat with. The rooms are well appointed and transfer you into a bygone era. The garden is beautiful and people enjoy the fire pit in the evening when weather permits. I truly feel this inn is a real gem. You will never be disappointed! Karen and Debbie

Always feels like home

4.6 on May 28, 2016

I have spent several wonderful week-ends here and cannot wait to stay in my Country cottage this weekend. The owners are always the greatest hosts in the world and I feel like this is my home away from home and so cozy. The area is really beautiful no matter the time of year. Fran M. Whiting, NJ

At the times of Jane Austin

4.8 on April 04, 2016

I Stades at Churchtown Inn B&B in the John Griffin Room and was put back to the times of Jane Austin tales! The Room was very cosy and represented the ancient times perfectly. The breakfast was outstanding!! The in keepers we're extremly helpful and had very interesting things to Tell - especially about Amish way of living. I will definitly Return!

Just like Jane Ausrin

5 on March 24, 2016

I spent two nights in the John Griffin Room and I felt like a young lady in one of the Jane Austin tales. Jim and Chris are the most gordious hosts you can think of! They are always present when needed. They have very much to tell about the Amish and give helpful advised. The breakfast is just out of this world! I will defenitly je back!!

Innkeeper Response
Hi Barbara, Thanks so much for the kind words. You are the very first to liken our Inn to Jane Austin. We are telling everyone about our very interesting visitor from Frankfurt, Germany. Everyone especially likes hearing about your Bear Blog. Warm regards, Chris, Jim and Gracie

GREAT place!

4.6 on March 02, 2016

Excellent innkeepers! Very kind, helpful and take very good care of their inn. The room I was in (Clarkson) was excellent. Good amenities and well-maintained (esp. for such an old building). Only negative is price. A little expensive per night.

Tremendous experience!

5 on February 10, 2016

Gorgeous accommodations! Delightful company! Delicious breakfast, never the same! Very clean, quiet, peaceful, homey! I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else! Jim and Chris feel like family! They are so warm and welcoming! Staying in their home is definitely a treat!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind words. We enjoy our guests and the wide variety of insights and interests they have. We look forward to everyone's return visits and do feel as if your guests are family. Be well.

Awesome visit!

5 on January 09, 2016

My husband and I stayed at the Churchtown Inn for a date night. We had a gear stay! The room was so pretty and the fireplace was great since it was a chilly night outside. The innkeepers Chris and Jim was so friendly and told us some of the history of the building. As much as we loved our room it didn't begin to compare to the breakfast! It is worth staying here just to have Chris cook for you!!! We will definitely stay here again.


5 on November 02, 2015

What an awesome experience. Have been to B&Bs before, however this is one of my favorites. The innkeepers were personable, friendly, and very knowledgeable of the area and answered all your questions. The meals were so tasty and unique. Would definitely recommend this to anyone wishing to stay in the Lancaster County area! Cathy (Stant) and Jerry Ushler - Bridgeton, NJ

You Really Feel Like Family

5 on October 20, 2015

Rooms are unique and well appointed, hosts are very accommodating and welcoming. Breakfast is always a treat and the knowledge of the area they have is a plus. Already looking forward to our next stay.

Best B&B ever.

5 on October 16, 2015

When you arrive at the Inn, owners Chris and Jim make you feel like you never left home. The food is all home made and delicious. We were there for a reunion with all our friends and have made reservations for the same time next year and hope that we can do it again this spring. Thank you Chris, Jim and Gracie

Very quiet B&B, perfect!

5 on October 15, 2015

Really enjoyed the time Jim took to explain the local history and culture.

Beautiful Country House

4.6 on September 15, 2015

We enjoyed our stay at the Churchtown Inn and were very pleased with the excellent breakfast.

Wonderful Holiday Weekend!

5 on May 29, 2015

Chris and Jim are fantastic hosts in their lovely historic home. A quiet retreat from the hectic world we live in. The garden area with the waterfall is so peaceful! Chris is a fantastic cook and the breakfasts feature many items from local Amish and Mennonite Farms. If you want to tour Lancaster county this is the perfect place to start!

Pleaseant B&B in Amish country

5 on May 11, 2015

Charming 18th century building with beautiful views and gourmet breakfasts. Jim and Chris were very gracious and helpful. Lots to do in the surrounding area.

Nice stay

4.0 on May 01, 2015

We really enjoyed this property. The kids loved staying next to a cemetery Plenty of room in the house. Could use a second TV when you are traveling with little kids. Easy check in and check out. Not convenient to Hershey or Lancaster, not much around. We did not mind though, the countryside ride so pretty. We did not receive the "promised" milk, granola, etc. Property very clean.

Wonderful experience, just watch your head!

4.8 on March 17, 2015

This quaint little B&B is quite a jewel! The house itself is lovely and inviting, with several sitting areas for reading one of the hundreds of books they offer or playing a game, many of which are also available. We were warmly greeted by Jim before we even got inside, and Chris was right behind him (as was Gracie, their cute little dog). Cookies, Irish potato balls, and drinks were always available, and beer and wine were only $1 each. The nightcap was included! Our particular room was chosen because it has a queen bed and a twin bed. (We traveled with our daughter.) Though the beds were comfy, my husband and I kept banging our heads on the ceiling in the bathroom. This was he only negative point of the whole stay! The highlight was an authentic Amish dinner, which Nim and Chris arranged for us at their friends' David and Rebecca's house. Don't miss this experience! Breakfast was equally tasty, prepared by Chris with attention to detail. I would highly recommend! Just don't stay in the attic!

Wonderful Place to Stay

5 on February 18, 2015

My husband and I stayed in the carriage house with our pup in October. This was a wonderful end to our honeymoon. We loved every aspect of it. We did not get to eat Jim & Chris's cooking (sure smelled good when we walked in) but I could rave on and on about how lovely these 2 are. We will definately be staying here again. Jim even allowed us to follow him in his vehicle down to the carriage house so we wouldn't lost. A++ Rating from us. Thank you so much again. The Hopfel's

Comfortable and beautiful B&B

4.6 on January 14, 2015

Enjoyed our stay immensely. The place is so lovely, comfortable and clean and the room we stayed in was very spacious and clean. Food was excellent and Jim and Chris are a clovely and warm couple. Sp good to have met them.

Wonderful stay in Amish country

5 on December 15, 2014

This was our sixth trip to Churchtown Inn. We thoroughly enjoy staying with Chris and Jim who are amazing innkeepers. Chris fixes a gourmet breakfast and Jim tells a wonderful story about each course. If you stay on the weekend, you may even be able to eat with an Amish family, a real treat.

Covered Bridge Cottage

5 on November 26, 2014

My wife and I stay at The Covered Bridge Cottage nearly every year - we have 2 boxers and the Cottage is dog friendly. The Innkeepers are wonderful, the location is great - very private - and the fact they are 'dog friendly' is the icing on the cake. We would live there if we could!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words. We are glad to have our guests be able to come and enjoy a "get-away" along with their pets. Boarding a dog is a hassle, and most dogs enjoy getting away as much as their owners.

Great stay

4.8 on November 13, 2014

Jim and Chris were great hosts. The room was clean and very comfortable. Food was outstanding.

great stay

5 on November 09, 2014

5 on November 03, 2014

Best place to stay, great ambiance,great food, esp Chris's cooking, Jim's friendly chats, place is exceptionally clean, they make you feel like family, will always return there. We have been going there for 4 yrs. Will return.

Best B&B in Lancaster

5 on October 27, 2014

When we stay at the Churchtown Inn it is like coming home to family. Chris and Jim make your stay so enjoyable. We have been staying at the Inn for the past 9 years.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words. You are family. We so enjoyed hearing all the laughter this past weekend. Warmly, Chris and Jim

Stay at Churchtown Inn

5 on October 14, 2014

Jim and Chris are excellent hosts. The environment of the inn is relaxing.

wonderful place to stay

5 on October 10, 2014

This is the best place to stay. You meet very nice people. The owners are very nice as well. The rooms are pretty and are furnished with beautiful Amish quilts. You also can experience going to an Amish families home and have a nice dinner.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you very much for your kind words. We appreciate your taking the time to write a review. We have had such fun with our guests this summer and fall, we will relive the wonderful memories through the the slower winter months. All the Best.

An outstanding stay! Will visit again

5 on October 09, 2014

Gourmet breakfasts were great. The hospitality was very warm.

Innkeeper Response

Our Hideaway

5 on October 06, 2014

We have been going to this B&B for over 25 years. We feel that we are part of the house. We have a lot of many fond memories and love it here. Chris and Jim are wonderful innkeepers and make you feel at home. They serve wonderful breakfasts and we share many conversations. We love it here and would highly recommend you to try it.

Best Ever.......

4.8 on September 21, 2014

Lovely historical building set in picturesque garden setting. The rooms are beautifully appointed and comfortable. Hosts, Chris and Jim couldn't be more helpful and the breakfast was out of this world.....chilled apple soup, leek and bacon quiche with a sage sauce, accompanied by Bavarian nut rolls....just to add a sweet touch chocolate ginger fudge! Stunning!

Homeaway from Home

5 on September 19, 2014

As always, everything is always attended to from soup to nuts. The inn itself is so cozy, The innkeepers are very hospitable. The food is very tasty and always different. This is definity a place that warrants a second look. Enjoy yourselves!!!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for the kind words and the five star rating. We enjoyed as well. It's nice to catch up on what's going on with you, and we appreciate seeing familiar faces every weekend. Enjoy the fall season and we look forward to your next visit. Warm regards, Chris (and Jim and Gracie)

A great experience at Churchtown Inn

4.0 on August 21, 2014

Stayed mid August 2014 for two nights. Jim and Chris are excellent hosts and provide a wealth of information on the surrounding area/attractions and Amish life. Outstanding breakfast provided which includes the opportunity to meet and mingle with other guests and share experiences.Having a meal and a few drinks can be a problem as there are no Cabs/Taxis in the area so a designated driver is essential. Overall a great experience in beautiful and idyllic surroundings. Tom & Linda - Ireland

Innkeeper Response
Thanks so much for the kind words. Having lived in the British Iles, I respect how seriously not drinking and driving is not done. We enjoyed your visit; make me homesick to go back across the pond. Warm regards Chris

The warmth and kindness of the Innkeepers,Jim, Chris and their Bishon, Claire.The breakfasts amde by Chris which were awesome. The dinner at the home of an Amish couple and their six children. What a tremendous experience and something you will always remember. I would recommend the Churchtown B&B .

5 on August 20, 2014

We have stayed twice at the inn and it is well worth it. The rolling hills of Amish farms, the clip clop of Amish and Mennonite Buggies going by. Just a beautiful place to stay, visit and have treasured memories to share. Will visit again and again. Mrs. Karen Knippenberg

Innkeeper Response
Thank you very much for your wonderful review. We enjoyed your visit. See you again next year.

Covered Bridge Cottage

3.8 on August 19, 2014

Wonderful stone cottage is part of the B+B. Located just down the road from the B+B in the Poole Forge park. Quiet, peaceful. Lovely little house with 1 bedroom upstairs. Comfortable yet firm King size bed. My daughter stayed downstairs on the daybed. Nice kitchen, fully equipped (bring your own food of course). Chris and Jim who manage the property are very nice. They also allow a dog for an extra fee. I didn't make it up the B+B for breakfast but I bet is was good. If you travel during the first week of August, the whole main street is one big yard sale called Churchtown Days.

our home away from home

5 on August 03, 2014

Chris and Jim are always warm and welcoming,rooms are always clean and bright, and breakfasts are superb and never the same twice.

Home Way From Home

5 on August 02, 2014

Churchtown B&B always makes you feel like family and they treat you like that. The food is excellent 7 everything is so clean!! I never stay anywhere else but Churchtown B&B

Great Place to stay

5 on July 07, 2014

Warm, friendly, interesting and informative. Would not hesitate to stay there again. Recommended good restaurants and got us a chance to eat in an Amish family's house. Pretty garden in the back.

Beautiful Cottage

3.2 on July 01, 2014

For my husbands 30th birthday we rented the Covered Bridge Cottage for the weekend and it was a really nice experience. At first I was skeptical booking the cottage due to the lack of pictures on their website but what changed my mind is how friendly Chris was on the phone when I called to inquire about their rules about bringing our doggie with us. The cottage is very cozy with great little details in the entire place .The kitchen is a very beautiful color and functional with everything provided.The bathroom was very nicely decorated,had plenty of great smelling soaps and a beautiful old style sink. The bedding was very clean but the mattress was pretty noisy with squeaking springs. It might be time for a new one. There is no phone in the cottage which is about 1 mile away from the main house. I didn't realize it was an issue until we wanted to make a call and there was no signal on our cellphones either. We set up wifi calling but every time we stepped outside signal was lost. This might be an issue for people that are older or that are not so good with cellphones and they need to make emergency calls or just a call to the main house. It would be great to have a phone that connects you to the main house or wifi that has more coverage.This definitely should be mentioned to guests when they arrive and help them out if they don't know how to use the wifi calling. Another surprise was that it is located in a park so you don't have complete privacy. There is actually 3 parking spots and a porta potty right outside the cottage door for people using the park but it was not bad at all. It was pretty quiet, we just had to be cautious with our dog when the cars where coming in the park. Overall me, my husband and especially our cutie daschund had a very nice weekend. We would definitely go back again and stay at the same cottage and would for sure recommend it to our friends. Thank you Chris for your hospitality and we hope to be able to come back soon.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your candid and glowing response. I just wanted to let you know I sent your review to the Township Commissioners and the Port-A-Potty was removed the following week. The bed has been repaired. The cell phone coverage is a mystery. We now ask our visitors to check it when we show the cottage. So far, no problems...but we will keep abreast of this.

This Inn is willing to accommodate you dietary restrictions!

4.6 on June 24, 2014

I just LOVED staying with Chris and Jim while in town for a seminar. They were so hospitable and catered to my dietary needs and restrictions. Breakfast was always amazing. Thank you both for a welcoming place to stay and hope to visit again with our family someday:)

outstanding stay

5 on June 23, 2014

the owners are extremely friendly and knowledable about the surrounding area made it seem like we where staying with family rather than a b and b highly recommended


5 on June 02, 2014

My wife and I stayed there when we celebrated our anniversary. We had a wonderful stay. The Churchtown Inn was beautiful. The service could not have been better and the food was fantastic. We are planning on making an annual trip for our anniversary.

Wonderful time

5 on May 20, 2014

This was our first visit to a B&B. The experience was wonderful. Very clean and well decorated rooms. Excellent breakfast every day. Chris and Jim were very good hosts and very helpful and informative on the attractions. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Our weekend stay.

4.6 on April 30, 2014

Jim & Chris offer a friendly, inviting atmosphere at the Churchtown Inn. We stayed in the Carriage House room, and from the moment we entered it, there was a sense of peace and having gotten 'away from it all'. I particularly enjoyed coffee before breakfast, where all the guests meet in the parlor (voluntarily) for coffee and conversation. The food was excellent.

Fantastic place, and they take pets too!

5 on April 21, 2014

We were so pleased with the warmth and hospitality of Chris, the owner of this B & B. Our breakfast was amazing; the room was spacious with a very comfortable kind sized bed; and, the inn is located in the heart of the Amish country. We will stay here again in a heartbeat.

Without a doubt, the best place I've stayed.

5 on February 25, 2014

We had our wedding party here in February last weekend (21st - 23rd), and had family fly in from around the world to celebrate in small style with us. We did the Amish wedding feast on Friday night, and the murder mystery night on Saturday. Chris & Jim made the entire weekend so memorable, even going as far as to get us a wedding cake. All out guests raved about it and had a blast! I wouldn't hesitate to ever recommend this place to anyone.

Lovely rooms, great breakfasts !

4.8 on February 20, 2014

Chris and Jim are great hosts who go beyond expectations to make guest feel at home and comfortable. The breakfasts were wonderful and they were able to accomodate our gluten-free requests with delicious options. Don't miss the opportunity to visit an Amish family home for a group dinner.

The Best of the Best

5 on February 06, 2014

This truly is the best bed & breakfast I've ever had the privilege to stay! Jim & Chris are the warmest, most personable people. From the moment you walk in & are greeted by Miss Gracie, one feels completely welcomed! Jim & Chris share their knowledge of the area with great enthusiasm. Truly a wonderful B&B!

Our Honeymoon

5 on January 23, 2014

I have stayed at the Churchtown Inn for other events in the past and have always loved it there. My husband and I recently stayed there for our honeymoon and the new owners were absolutely the sweetest ever. In fact we enjoyed our stay so much we extended from one night to two. The room was cozy the breakfast delicious and service above and beyond. We so enjoyed getting to know Jim each morning at breakfast. It was like being among family. They even let us switch our room after it was booked. We are planning on staying for Valentine's day as well and I may even surprise my husband for his Birthday. We will be staying again and most likely staying for our anniversary next year. I would recommend the Chir brown In. To anyone wanting a nice affordable place to stay in Lancaster. It's close to everything but yet far enough away to give a retreat feeling to your stay. Seriously stay here. You will call in love with it just as my husband and I have. Judith M. McCarty

Lovely weekend

4.4 on January 04, 2014

We were lucky enough to stay at the Covered Bridge Cottage last weekend. I have to say that the hosts were the most accommodating I have ever encountered. They not only allowed an early check in so that I could get a little sleep but they also provided a goody bag of snacks so I would be able to maximize my snooze time before heading out that night! The cottage was beautiful as was the surrounding park. We did have a time getting the temperature regulated in the cottage but it is construction from the 1700's so that was not entirely unexpected. Breakfast both mornings was very tasty. Hopefully we will be able to stay again soon. Thank you for a fantastic mini-vacation! Kim & Christopher

Awesome B&B

5 on November 18, 2013

Churchtown Inn was a great find. Our first stay. Jim and Chris were great. Room was very nice. Food was awesome. Will be back.

Okay but I have stayed at better

3.2 on November 10, 2013

The inn keepers were very friendly and hospitable. The rooms in the cottage we rented were very neat and had plenty of linens. The kitchen had everything we needed for the meals we cooked there. The bed had huge people-shaped depressions and was like sleeping on bricks. Probably the most uncomfortable bed I have ever slept on. The bedroom also lacked curtains - there were just some flimsy sheers, so no privacy or light blocking capability. I can't rate dining because we didn't eat with them this time. The last time we ate with them it was really average. Not bad, but nothing to write home about. It wasn't a bad experience, (except for my lack of sleep). I would consider staying with them again if my first B & B choice was not available, but probably not at the cottage (the bed ruined an otherwise lovely little cottage for me....can't have a good vacation on little to no sleep).

It was great

5 on November 10, 2013

Our stay was fantastic. Great hosts, comfortable room and awesome food. Will definitely return.

Afraid to tell anyone about it....

5 on November 08, 2013

We have stayed at the Churchtown Inn's Covered Bridge cottage a few times. Each and every time it has been a wonderful experience. It is close to everything but also close to nothing. We have stayed here in both summer and winter. The setting is beautiful - in a park with a covered bridge in your yard. We prefer the winter stays since there are less people in the area around the cottage, however, the summer allows you to enjoy the surroundings. Pets are welcome which is very important to us. Grocery shopping is close by in a 'fun to shop in' store called Good's. The bed & breakfast is located about a mile up the road. We don't get breakfast but that is our preference. The cottage has a full kitchen with a microwave that sings "oh Susannah". How special is that? The innkeepers are extremely friendly. It is the perfect place to stay where you are pretty much away from everything but close to the little towns in this area.

Three Cheers for Churchtown Inn

5 on November 06, 2013

We have stayed at this charming Inn twice in the last month , so I guess you would assume we loved it. We do! Both rooms we reserved were charming and quaint, with vintage décor and cozy amish quilts. The Innkeepers , Jim and Chris, are so welcoming feels like your staying with family. Chris keeps a cookie jar of homemade cookies for guests and a fridge full of beverages too. They also arranged a memorable dinner at an Amish Family Farm. What a wonderful evening. Chris prepares a wonderful, hearty breakfast each morning with a unique main course and always homemade granola...It's yummy. We hope to return soon for another getaway at the Churchtown.

Road trip

3.6 on November 03, 2013

Charming B&B. Lovely and hospitable Inn keepers. Breakfast was amazing. Little Grace added a warm touch to the cozy environment. The room was small, but really nice, however, It was bit hard to adjust the temperature in the room. It was cold at first, then got really hot after we turned the heat on, and I finally just turned it off for the night.

Relaxing weekend getaway

5 on November 01, 2013

I stayed with a friend at the Churchtown Inn Bed and Breakfast in August of 2013. It was a girl's weekend getaway. It was such an amazing weekend. The cottage itself was beautiful! Jim and Chris were so friendly. They were very helpful in giving advice about the local activities and events. I felt like I was at home away from home. I would definitely go back to the Churchtown Inn for another trip. Jasmine

excellent stay.....Jim and Chris awesome!!!!

5 on October 27, 2013

thanks for a great stay.. again...Bud and Sue Swider

Always delightful

4.8 on October 21, 2013

Rooms are clean, comfortable, and quiet. The innkeepers make you feel so welcome and breakfast is always tempting! We've stayed here several times and always look forward to returning.

We have stayed at the Churchtown two times now and look forward to visiting again. The innkeepers are warm, friendly and attempt to accomodate your every request. The rooms are beautifully decorated and maintained. The breakfasts are exceptional..

A wonderful October Harvest getaway

Terrific, clean and reasonable

Loved the historical aspect of this country B&B

4.4 on October 11, 2013

Loved getting a brief history of the house upon arrival. Also, loved the breakfast choices and the expert cooking! Especially liked the fact that "local" foods were used in the breakfast.

farm view cottage

We stayed in the farm view cottage and had a wonderful time. The owners were wonderful and accomedating the two dogs we brought. We also had dinner with the amish family down the street and couldn't be happier. The food was wonderful. We will definitly be coming back!

Wonderful people and place to stay!

5 on October 07, 2013

Very friendly and welcoming innkeepers. They made be feel right at home. The breakfast was fantastic and Chris was willing to share her recipes. The house and the surrounding country side were beautiful too. I would definitely stay there again!

The most restful stay in many years

5 on October 07, 2013

Our stay in the farmhouse at Churchtown B & B was one of the most memorial and relaxing get a ways we have experienced in many many years. It was 'perfect' in every way. The innkeepers are wonderful and kind, the house was spotless and and comfortable. The setting is surreal with the horse and buggy traffic outside the front door from sun up till sundown. We will certainly return soon.

Warm welcoming hosts

5 on September 27, 2013

We truly felt at home in the Churchtown Inn. Our room was extremely comfortable and Chris's breakfasts were delicious. We were treated as old friends. We thoroughly enjoyed the view of the gardens and pond as we sat in the sunlight-filled breakfast room.

Always enjoy our stay here.

Peaceful with beautiful surrounding properties.

Our September stay at the Churchtown Inn

5 on September 18, 2013

Due to some dietary restrictions, Chris went over and above the call of duty to accommodate us, and our breakfasts were outstanding. Jim is a wealth of area history and knowledge - you may plan to stay there and do nothing, however, believe me, after you talk to Jim, you are definitely going to take off for some daily area excursions, sightseeing and great local restaurants - all well worth your time. -S&W, Navesink, NJ Sept. 2013

Amazing Stay!

5 on September 03, 2013

We loved the inn. Jim and Chris were great inkeepers. The tour and history of the home and area was educational. Breakfast was delicious and the dinning room was charming. We were both leary on staying at a bed and breakfast but we are so glad we did. We are planning on going back soon! Rebecca & William Collingswood, NJ

Excellent stay!

Great Hosts and Great Breakfast

Lovely & charming B&B

5 on August 18, 2013

Jim and Chris were outstanding hosts. They thought of everything! The rooms are carefully and individually decorated and breakfast was excellent! Definitely go back there.

A perfect stay

4.6 on August 14, 2013

Unfortunately, our family of four could stay for only one night. We were put in a two-room suite with a private bath which worked perfectly for us. The innkeepers were very pleasant and helpful. They arranged a special dinner for us with an Amish family which was the highlight of our visit. The breakfast was wonderful - better than we had expected. We will definitely stay longer next time.

Great B&B in a Good Location

3.8 on August 13, 2013

The Churchtown Inn Bed and Breakfast was a great choice of B&B in a good location. Jim and Chris were full of hospitality. Some of the rooms seem a little dated but that is part of the charm. For the price this is a great quality B&B.

Definitely one to revisit

4.6 on August 12, 2013

service couldn't be any better enjoyed the breakfast wish I had the time to take in more of the county only prompts more visits in the future

A touch of heaven!

5 on July 31, 2013

From the moment Chris and Jim met us at the door when we checked in until we hugged goodbye 3 days later, our stay at Churchtown Inn B&B was as comfortable and familiar as staying with lifelong friends (which I hope they will be). They made us feel like we were at home from the beginning of our stay until we drove out of the driveway. Jim was better than a tour guide, with wonderful recommendations for evening dining and local attractions that were tailored to our interests and his knowledge of the surrounding area was truly educational. The Inn was immaculate and the staff simply wonderful and charming. Chris' breakfasts were delicious and she went above and beyond to meet our special food restrictions. We'll definitely be return patrons.

Recent visit to Lancaster County

5 on July 31, 2013

Churchtown Inn B&B is well located for a visit to Lancaster County. The rooms are comfortable and tastefully furnished. Breakfasts are excellent! Jim and Chris are very friendly and helpful. They have compiled a thorough list of places to visit in the general area, as well as restaurants within a 30-minute drive of the B&B. Overall, it's an excellent value.

Churchtown Inn Review

5 on July 28, 2013

The owners take extra care to make you feel part of the family and welcome. One night we attended an event which lasted longer than expected and then we drove to the inn during a terrible rain. Jim, the owner, stayed up late to insure we arrived safely and had no problems getting into the inn.

Churchtown Inn Bed and Breakfast

5 on July 27, 2013

My wife and I were surprised by my brother and sister in law with a delightful Saturday night stay at the Churchtown Inn in the heart of Amish country. We are from South Carolina and really enjoyed the sights of the area. The inn keepers were very friendly and helpful, and our room was simply charming. A delicious breakfast awaited us on Sunday morning, after we had viewed the Mennonite buggies on their way to service.

All around great stay, would definitely go back.

All around great stay, would definitely go back.

Proved our research right!

5 on July 25, 2013

We did a LOT of research on B&Bs throughout Pennsylvania Dutch country before making our choice. We looked at how the rooms were appointed (we prefer historic B&Bs with some authenticity), the price, the quality of the breakfast, and comfort criteria like air conditioning and a private bath. The Churchtown Inn had it all! That includes very accommodating and friendly hosts. The full breakfasts (we had 3) were all very creative and satisfying. We've been staying at B&Bs for about 28 years, including throughout the U.K., and we're giving the Churchtown Inn our highest marks.

"A great Place to stay".

Me and my wife had a great 37th Anniversary staying in this charming place.

Our favorite Home away from Home!

5 on July 02, 2013

We have stayed here 3 times and can't wait to come back again. It is a beautiful place and Jim and Chris are wonderful! Breakfasts served in the sunroom are both delicious and relaxing. Highly recommend The Churchtown Inn, whether you are passing through PA or just want a sweet short getaway.

Churchtown Inn Bed and Breakfast is a lovely place. We enjoyed the atmosphere and food tremendously. The innkeepers are wonderful and made us feel at home. We plan to stay there again and have recommended it many of our friends.

A Great Experience

4.8 on May 29, 2013

Our stay at the Churchtown Inn was outstanding. Our hosts were personable, informative and extremely friendly. We enjoyed learning about the historical aspects of the Inn and since we were new to the Lancaster area, Jim went above and beyond in giving us a full overview of the local color and customs of the surrounding communities. We would definitely stay here again!

Innkeepers made us feel comfortable and happy

5 on August 25, 2009

The innkeepers were so friendly - we felt comfortable right away. The rooms were lovely and comfortable and the breakfast was one of the most delicious I have ever had. One of my favorite parts of this inn was the garden - it was serene and peaceful. I would DEFINITELY go there again!

Fantastic Experience

5 on August 03, 2009

My husband & I had such a wonderful time at the Churchtown Inn B&B. It was comfortable, quaint and the food was delicious. Best of all, after a few hours, I felt like we were staying with family.We learned so much about the Amish community from Jim. Our dinner with Mary was a fantastic experience. Infact, the whole trip was a fantastic experience. You can definitely count on my husband & I visiting again!! Josephine & Anthony

Beautiful old house elaborated in every detail. Very quired area with nice landscape and areas to walk. Very nice owners. Artistic breakfast (it is a celebration and you shouldn't be late for it)

visit to the Millers

5 on January 27, 2009

My husband and I had the most wonderful time, Jim and Chris are great people and we felt welcomed in their home, breakfast was amazing - hearing the horse and buggies going by in the morning was a great treat - the second day - Jim had my tea ready and brought it outside I was really impressed - considering the house was full and he remembered that I drank tea and not coffee

An Amazing Getaway

4.6 on December 31, 2007

The Friday before Christmas and all through out minds was an escape to Lancaster. We usually just do the 'day trip' from the Jersey Shore but this time we wanted something special. So we randomly picked a B & B and ended up with the Churchtown Inn. We were warmly greeted by Jim Farr who proceeded to give us a history of this historic B&B ... since it was a rare slow Friday night we were also able to scope out all of the bedrooms at this inn. Spying unique rooms that might be future requests on our list. The innkeeper's choice for our room was perfect with a gaslit fireplace, a very comfy queen sized bed and a room decorated to make us feel special. Having read the website, I had to ask about the one closet and ... as I opened the door I was truly surprised and impressed. The back dining area provides an outstanding view of Lancaster County farm land and the entire inn is just plain comfortable ... we were tempted to not go shopping but just to enjoy the ambiance including the sherry, homemade cookies and delicious choices of teas. We woke up before the morning breakfast bell and were treated to the outstanding hospitality of Jim and his wife Chris. Breakfast was yummy, filling and Chris' special eggs in wontons had both of us trying to figure out how to make it at home. The Amish made granola cereal was so good we brought two bags home with us. We lingered as long as we could before heading out shopping but have already decided that in the future we don't have to have any guesswork because the Churchtown Inn will be our only choice for a Lancaster B&B escape! Dave and Donna Delaney
