Better than expected. Beautiful inn with early american oak trim, clean and spacious, (bedroom, sitting room and large bathroom). Host was extremely polite and accommodating. Was a great value for the money.

Just like home

We spent one night, room was small but comfortable and had everything we needed. The owner Carl was very friendly and provided an excellent breakfast and great conversation. My husband had a massage the next day which he greatly enjoyed. We were in town for my sister's wedding.

Outstanding Bed & Breakfast

The Braeburn suite was cozy, comfy and relaxing as was the loft above. The inn keeper, Carl is extremely accommodating, goes above and beyond plus is fun and interesting to talk with. His breakfasts (including accommodating food restrictions) were amazing. So are his muffins and to "must have"chocolate chip cookies. He knows the area well and directed my wife and I to some hidden gems. Carl is awesome as is his B&B. If you want a great experience, then this is where you want to stay. simply the best! he accommodates your every need

Hidden gem in New Holland

5 on October 30, 2017

Words cannot describe what a wonderful host Carl is. Made us feel welcome the moment we stepped in the door. We stayed in the MacIntosh room and it was great Private entrance and quiet. Will try one of the other rooms on our next trip there. Breakfasts were amazing!! The best potato pancakes and sausage I have ever had !! The other guests that weekend were quilting ladies and we had a wonderful time getting to know them. Karl went out of his way to show us some out of the way places that only the locals know about. We have been coming to Lancaster for years and had never been to several of these hidden gems. We left on Friday knowing we had truly made a new friend! Thank you Carl!! Sincerely Bonnie and Ron Marple

Amazing B&B in New Holland Pa

Spent our 50th anniversary at The Harvest Moon B&B. Perfect weekend enjoying Carl's gourmet breakfasts while sharing stories with Carl and the other guests. Rooms are not only comfortable but beautifully decorated with antiques. Carl is a most gracious host. Always willing to accommodate any request. You will find Amish buggys passing in front of the porch. A little bit of Warren Kimble at your doorstep. Thanks Carl for helping us to make wonderful memories to last a lifetime.

Wonderful B&B - Harvest Moon

5 on April 05, 2017

If you have never been to the New Holland area or to a B&B, then you definitely have to try the Harvest Moon. It is one of the best B&Bs in the area and Carl, the innkeeper, is so friendly and helpful. And, the breakfasts are so delicious.
