The description of the place was exact. I stayed in the basement apartment and it was spacious! The beds were comfortable and everything was clean. They provided an ample selection of shampoos for every hair situation. The breakfast was delicious! This is an old house, 1845 I believe, so it does have that historic charm. The owners were very nice and very helpful in finding things around Millersville. The next time I stay here I'll try the upstairs bedroom. You will like this place.

Pleasant stay at this B&B near Lancaster. It is a little ways from the main Amish Country area, so don't expect to walk out the door and see buggies rolling by. Room was fine, nothing amazing, and breakfast was also good but nothing to rave about. Rates are reasonable and innkeepers helpful.
Thank you for taking the time to review. Lancaster, PA is famous for "plain people." Simple (without sacrificing comfort of course), and personal, is what most of our guests for. We aim to do that well.

My wife and I with our German Shepard stayed at the Blue Rock Bed and Breakfast, and absolutely loved it. We spent 3 nights there while visiting Hershey in the fall for the antique car show. Its about 40 minutes away from Hershey, but well worth the trip. Ed and Stephanie were very friendly, and there home is very clean, and they are pet friendly. Hope to stay there again, thanks Dean.

My husband, sister and I stayed at the Blue Rock Bed and Breakfast to have a location close to York County as well as Lancaster County. Ed and Stephanie were gracious hosts to a family gathering for us for about 25 people. I had not been able to see my family for many years and we filled the B&B with memories and laughter. The food was delicious and the owners daughter is law made some fruit tarts what were simply a work of art. We ate them despite thei beauty!
So wonderful to host you all! We're glad our BnB suited your needs. We fell privileged to play a part in such a momentus family event. Hope to see you again.

My wife and I made our yearly trek to Lancaster trying different bed and breakfasts in the area on her birthday. We very much enjoyed staying at the Blue Rock with the Hershs' as our host/owner. The rooms were all clean, comfortable and climate controlled. The breakfast that Stephanie prepared exceeded our expectations with hearty portions of eggs, excellent sausage and pancakes (as well as the healthy fruit, granola, and juices) Ed is very knowledgeable of the local attraction and history of the area. Families big or small will be comfortable is the space the living areas in the house provide. We strongly recommend anyone interested in experiencing a bed and breakfast stay, try here first.

The family suite was perfect for our two young children and our dog. There was plenty of room for the kids to play with the toys and games provided, and for us to relax in the evening while the kids slept in a separate area. The suite was very clean and very comfortable. Our hosts were great and very helpful with giving recommendations. We were not very far from all the attractions and we were in a very nice and quaint neighborhood. The breakfast was incredible. Our hostess made homemade banana muffins with homemade preserves, oatmeal pancakes, eggs with homemade salsa, local sausages, homemade granola and fresh fruit and of course coffee and juice. We had a fantastic mini getaway with the family and most of the credit goes to the Blue Rock Bed and Breakfast.

This is the perfect B&B for your family! Our family of 4 had plenty of room in the large suite with room to spare. Everyone had there own comfy bed and it was well separated from the living area if you needed quite time. The bathroom is huge giving everyone space to get ready for the day. The toys and games that were in the room were a nice touch. The amount of food offered is plenty and there's something for everyone - eggs, sausage, pancakes (3 types), muffins, granola, fresh fruit and salsa from the garden. We did not have any food restrictions but Stephanie was willing to accommodate if we did. Ed and Stephanie are welcoming and offer a great value with their rooms and breakfast. Better than any hotel and less expensive too!

Ed and Stephanie were wonderful hosts. Breakfasts were great - and a lot of choices! Stephanie prepared multiple dishes each morning - and all were delicious. The B&B has 3 rooms and they are physically separate from one another - one is at the top of one stairway, the other at the top of a different stairway, and the family suite is in the basement (yes it has windows!). So all 3 rooms are very private. We stayed in the Sun Suite that had an enclosed porch - perfect for that morning cup of coffee or evening reading! And the company was wonderful. If we are in the area again, we will be staying at the Blue Rock B&B.
Thank you for the review. And thank you for choosing Blue Rock BnB. We're glad you appreciated the privacy factors of our location. And glad you enjoyed the breakfasts. We will certainly try, as it is our chief aim, to give you the great service you deserve when you return again! Many blessings,

My husband and I were very much pleased with Blue Rock and it's proprietors. The Rooms were more the size of an apartment and included just about everything you would need! Although we did not travel with children, Blue Rock would be ideal for them. It's spacious and even comes with shelves filled with games and movies. We did bring our dog and Freddy was welcomed! The bathroom was my favorite....it is overly large, slightly rustic but in a nice way and came with baskets of bath gels to choose from. Like I said...if we need a place near Lancaster to stay, Blue Rock would be our first choice!
