Carl's the man!

5 on February 09, 2017

He did everything we asked and more! We stayed in the Gala Suite and enjoyed reading and relaxing in the separate seating area. Breakfasts were scrumptious.

Just what we needed

We enjoyed our brief stay but we will plan on staying longer next time. Carl couldn't have been more accommodating. The room was great. The breakfast was great. We also got to see a part of Lancaster County that we don't usually see.

Outstanding B&B

5 on May 31, 2016

Came back to the Harvest Moon for my birthday weekend. We couldn't be happier with our accommodations and the hospitality shown by innkeeper Carl is truly second-to-none. He's the "real deal" and a gentle soul. The B&B is conveniently located in the heart of Lancaster County's "Amish Country" with literally 100's of working Pennsylvania Dutch farms within a 5 mile radius. Sit on a vintage front-porch rocker and watch as "small town USA" goes about its unassuming day or tuck into an afternoon nap on your cushy bed and let the soothing clip-clop of buggy horses lull you into reverie. Activities abound from mud sales, farmers markets, antique vendors, quilt shops and produce stands. The surrounding area is replete with an event calendar chock full of dining and entertainment choices to suit any taste. What a treat. This is what B&B weekends are all about.

Delightfully amazing peacfull place to stay!

We were worn out from traveling all day and found this last minute. Carl graciously arranged for our stay and made us the most amazing breakfast! We enjoyed talking with him over coffee and he was very willing and helpful with his knowledge of the area and guided us up the east coast with things to do and see. We enjoyed our time at Harvest Moon and the rest of our journey into New England. Thanks again, Carl!

Exceeds Expectations, Very Pleased

The Harvest Moon B&B, was a wonderful experience. Carl Kosko is the best, providing great rooms and wonderful breakfasts. Highly exceeded our expectations, as this was our first B&B stay. Thank you Carl & Harvest Moon B&B. Highly Recommend.

Our Home Away From Home

5 on April 30, 2016

We've visited Harvest Moon multiple times over the past 6 years and feel like family each time we stay there. The rooms are clean and cozy, the beds are comfortable, and Carl makes a bangin' breakfast each morning. We either purchase a weekend package (they're fun!) or go without an agenda because Carl always suggests great local gems for us to explore based on our interests, all within a 30 minute drive. Beverages (coffee, tea, water, soda) and snacks (including homemade baked goods) are always available on the first level, which is an amenity we greatly appreciate! Outstanding customer service stems from Carl's extensive experience in hospitality, and his cooking is top-notch. Highly recommend!

A wonderful holiday at the harvest moon

5 on January 07, 2016

My husband and I spent two nights at this establishment for new years eve and to celebrate our anniversary and we had a great time. The house is very beautiful and well kept. We stayed in the deluxe suite room that has 2 levels (main floor bedroom with king bed and second floor sitting area and bath room) and it was very cozy and spacious. For new years eve they had a great murder mystery themed event which was lots of fun. The next morning we had a delicious brunch (Carl is an amazing cook and host). Carl was very friendly and helpful during our stay and even helped us figure out what to do in the area. I would also recommend getting a massage during your stay. We had the pleasure of getting a couples massage and it was amazing. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are ever in the mood for a nice little getaway, delicious food, and great hospitality. There is lots to see and do in Lancaster! We will definitely be back soon!

Wonderful experience

Our first time in Pennsylvania. Harvest Moon B&B is a charming house in a great location. It's a quiet town and close to many places for day-tripping in Lancaster County. Carl was a great host. He provided great information for local activities. The rooms were charming and very clean. We stayed in the Gala, and the kids loved the upstairs room.

Can't go wrong

We found Harvest Moon via a LivingSocial deal and were very pleased. We stayed in th e Braeburn room which was very comfortable - a plush king bed with an upstairs living room and HUGE bathroom with jacuzzi tub, The owner Carl is very informative and friendly, we enjoyed just chatting with him - plus he makes fabulous breakfasts and cookies to enjoy daily.
