Creekside Inn

44 Leacock Road , Paradise, PA 17562 USA (Show map)


The Creekside Inn was built in 1781 by David Witmer, a personal friend of George Washington, and a prominent citizen of 18th century Paradise, Lancaster County. We are peacefully situated on 2 acres along the Pequea creek providing a romantic, comfortable place to relax and listen to the sound of horse & buggy passing by. A wide variety of dining choices are nearby. They include Historic Taverns, Dinner Theaters, PA Dutch Family Style restaurants, Smorgasbords and Quaint Village Cafes. After breakfast we can help you plan your day and offer advise on how to see the "Undiscovered Lancaster County".

Wonderful experience, excellent service.

My husband and I were impressed with the facilities as the home is historic and filled with interesting items from the past. The hosts were extremely helpful with local information and made all the guests feel like part of the family.

Excellent choice for a bed and breakfast in the Lancaster area

My husband and I spent several days at this B&B. The hosts are gracious and exceedingly helpful! I appreciated their concern for my food allergies, which is always a worry when I travel. They provided recommendations for local places to shop for quilts, and I found two lovely quilts for the price of the one that I nearly bought the first day there. The location is fantastic, and the grounds are beautiful. I highly recommend this B&B and would return.

Lovely day in Amish country

Enjoyed our stay at the Creekside Inn. Room was spacious and very comfortable. Kathy and Dennis were very kind and interesting.Loved listening to their life experiences living in Amish country. Breakfast was great and would definitely return if we were in the area. They even upgraded our room because their census was down. They told us they would be selling the B&B soon and moving on to their own private home. A shame because they have a real knack for it. Good luck to them.

This was our second time staying at Creekside in less than a year. Cathy and Dennis were great hosts. They provided helpful information about the area. The rooms were charming, clean, and comfortable. The breakfast was amazing every time. We will plan to stay at Creekside during any future visits.

What a Gem

We loved our stay at Creekside Inn. Cathy and Dennis made us feel right at home. They were also very helpful is pointing out places to eat and shop. I will never forgot the wonderful breakfasts that we shared together with our new American friends. The food was soooooo good. The conversation uplifting and informative. We also loved the sound of horses and buggies driving by Creekside in the morning. If we are ever in the area again we will stay here again. Our stay was very peaceful and relaxing. Thank you Cathy & Dennis. Terry & Brenda Edmonton, Canada
