Very enjoyable stay

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Blue Rock Bed and Breakfast and would highly recommend it to others looking for a great place to stay. In my 22 years of working, living, and traveling overseas I have had the opportunity to stay in quite a few bed and breakfasts in both the United Kingdom and on the continent and I must say that this is right up there amongst the top ones. Great amenities, and don't worry if you forgot you shampoo or conditioner they had a dozen or so to choose from to use. Breakfast was great, especially the scrapple. Many of the breakfast items were made from fresh items. My son has never stayed in a B & B and was a little skeptical, but loved it, is looking forward to staying again. If he does go to college in the area I will look forward to staying many more times in the future.


Quant and Comfortable

My first stay at a B&B. I was pleasantly surprised. Very comfortable. The owners were GREAT hosts. The breakfast was delicious. Wifi available free. A park is close by to exercise. Very good restaurants nearby. Walking distance to Millersville University.


Wonderful Accomodations

Our family of seven enjoyed the family suite! The hosts were welcoming and very helpful. Even our unusual requests were met without problems. The rooms were charming and everyone enjoyed themselves. Thanks so much! If we are in the area again, will definitely come back. Oh, and the homemade breakfast made from foods grown in the local area was superb! We were able to skip lunch with the hearty, healthy meal. Highly recommend this B&B.

A few nights at Blue Rock B&B

Ed & Stephanie certainly make you feel at home. For a home that is ovr a hundred yrs old they have upgraded the essential areas of the rooms, baths, and A/C/ heating to provide the comforts you find in much newer facilities. With Millersville Univ., Pa Dutch communities and Lancaster just mins away you shd look at what they have to offer. FGC, Palm Coast, FL.


Five Star B & B!

We had a GREAT stay at the Blue Rock B & B! It's very quaint and relaxing. We met other travelers there and we really enjoyed ourselves. The breakfast was all homemade - oatmeal pancakes, homemade apple butter and jam. And it's run by wonderful people! Go check it out for yourself!


A Nice Place to Stay

3.8 on April 01, 2018

The owners of this B&B are so sweet, helpful and were especially willing to accommodate our needs while staying there. The rooms and bathroom were clean and orderly. The breakfast was outstanding with local sausage and homemade jelly and apple butter. Stephanie asked beforehand about any food allergies and made a gluten free breakfast for us. It was fabulous.

Innkeeper Response
Great to have you at the BnB! Winter is hanging on way too long, but looking soon to have the seasonally fresh foods of Lancaster County on the breakfast table again!
