Amazing Stay

5 on December 03, 2017

This was our first time ever staying at a bed and breakfast. We were not disappointed at all. The rooms were comfortable and spotlessly clean. We slept even better than we do at home. Pat and Don are amazing hosts, it felt like we were visiting family. Their breakfasts are delicious and very hearty. Really enjoyed having dessert with breakfast, it was a nice treat. We will definitely be back again and again!

Innkeeper Response
So kind of you to take the time to review your stay with us. We often say that we want our guests to feel like they are at home. So glad it was that way for you. Looking forward to the next time!

We both recently stayed at the Osceola Mill House B&B during our 3 week holiday of the US East Coast. The house is located in an idyllic location next to the historic mill, surrounded by Amish farms, close to Gordonville, PA. The room we had (the Blue Room) was incredibly cozy and very tidy. We very much enjoyed our stay and would definitely go there again! The hosts Pat and Ron are very friendly and made us immediately feel welcome. In addition to running this lovely B&B and providing us with a spectacular breakfast, Pat and Ron also gave excellent advice on things to do and points of interest in the area (yes, we actually bought a quilt :-) ). Ample parking space even for larger vehicles is provided right next to the house. Our only regret is that we stayed just for one night - next time we will not make the same mistake!

Serene and beautiful hideaway

We returned to Osceola Mill House 10 years after our first stay for a long and quiet weekend. The place is just filled with charm, located just out of town on a small farm road... the last house hooked up to the electric grid. Every room is unique in character, and while the house is old and the character of the old house is there, it doesn't feel worn or aged. High quality throughout, from bath accoutrements to very comfortable bed. The hosts are super friendly, very helpful and knowledgable of the area, and accommodating to dietary needs. There's a fridge to store food, a Keurig AND freshly brewed coffee, lots of books and more to keep you entertained on the property, but you'll also be very close to all the Amish villages and sights if that's what you want to do. Best B&B we've ever stayed at!

This is our second time staying in the Blue Room at Osceola and it did not disappoint. The bed was more comfortable than I remember and the fire place was perfect for the cool February nights. Breakfasts were simple but fresh ingredients made it a satisfying start to our days. Ron was able to provide us with local information and options for sight seeing. Movie and game selection in the common room kept us entertained after dinner. Can't wait for our next stay!

Best B&B stay ever!

My two college girlfriends and I stayed here for a girls reunion weekend; we stayed in the Carriage House. The owners were extremely hospitable. The rooms in the Carriage House were clean and all of our needs were met. Also, breakfast, which was delivered to the Carriage House each morning, was delicious! We will definitely stay here again. Thank you to Ron and Patricia!

Great choice of accommodations!

Very comfortable and inviting home. Owners very welcoming, easy to speak with, knowledgeable. Our room, the fireside room, was great! Reasonable sized, nice bathroom, very comfy bed, relaxing fireplace. I had multiple email communications w owners that response was prompt and helpful. We will return!
