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".

Cathy and Dennis are wonderful proprietors. We have so much fun chatting with them and they always have excellent suggestions for entertainment and local restaurants. The location is perfect - only minutes from shopping and theaters. It is a quiet corner away from traffic with the exception of the occasional horse and buggy which is why we come to Amish country.

Wonderful Place!

Like staying with friends

Dennis & Cathy make you feel welcome immediately. Both have great senses of humor. Cathy gave great Amish local places to visit, which we took advantage of. Our party of 3 was able to use the Cameo & Mill rooms, allowing our single friend to have a room to herself. Central location made our traveling easy. Great time!!

Creekside Inn is Great!

We stayed at this B&B because it was built on land that our ancestors owned in the 1700's. The innkeepers were very friendly and full of interesting facts about some of our ancestors and the area. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone. The room we stayed in is very charming, comfortable and clean. The breakfasts were very tasty and filling.

Another great stay

We just got home after a 10 day stay at the Creekside. Great house, great rooms, great food and, above all, great hosts. Our trips to the US from England wouldn't be complete without a stay here.

Very nice B&B in the heartland of Amish Country

We stayed here while attending a concert in Lancaster PA. Cathy was a great hostess. The house is beautiful with a lot of character. Was a great overnight with a good breakfast the following morning.

Beautiful Inn

My wife and I stayed at the Creekside Inn for three nights, and we had a wonderful time Cathy & Dennis, the owners, were terrific hosts and they really made us feel at home. By the time we left, they felt like old friends. Breakfast each morning was delicious (especially the cinnamon bread french toast), and the room was delightful. Cathy & Dennis also took time to draw out a map and give us recommendations on things to see and do while we were in the area. We're already planning our trip back.
