Carriage Corner B&B

3705 E Newport Road , Intercourse, PA 17534 USA (Show map)


Carriage Corner B&B is the perfect introduction to the original concept of Bed and Breakfast: affordable lodging, genuine hospitality, delicious breakfasts and immaculate housekeeping. With tasteful handcrafted touches of folk-art, the B&B offers a relaxing country atmosphere; situated in the hub of Lancaster County's beautiful farmland and tourist area. Jay and Gaylen are new to the area but are soaking it all in and willing to share what they have learned. Resources on the area are provided in guest rooms as well as in the common room where one can curl up with a steeping cup of tea and read about the Amish lifestyle in front of a gas log stove. Wake up and let the wafting aroma of freshly brewed coffee lure you to our breakfast table. Inn specialties might include Ham & Cheddar Scones, Omelette Rolls, or baked French Toast all served with fresh fruit and juice.

Great place to stay

4.8 on May 13, 2018

We are regular bed and breakfast users and found Carriage Corner to be a wonderful place to stay. It is located in an area we thought would be noisy and congested but we our room was quiet and peaceful. Jay and Gaylen were fantastic hosts! They gave us great information for what we needed and were very knowledgeable about the area. Our room, which was on the lower floor, was a bit damp feeling but the in room fireplace quickly alleviated that condition. They took into account the important things in planning the bedroom enough plugs, space to put toiletries, etc. The breakfast of fruit and walnut pancakes with sausage was very good and very filling. We were very impressed with our stay and highly recommend Carriage Corner.

A Delightful Stay

5 on August 01, 2017

Owners were welcoming and ready to meet you needs. There were many extras that made you feel treated, such as self serve coffee , tea, and baked goods. There was available music cds and access to games to play. We felt like part of the family.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you! Sounds like we are meeting our goals. We love it when guests enjoy an afternoon coffee with a cookie and a card game or work on the puzzle. We look forward to your next visit.

I spent four nights at the Carriage Corner in mid-October, 2016 and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Jaymie and Gaylen had just purchased the Carriage Corner a couple of days before my arrival. They were very nice and very accommodating. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend this B & B. Breakfast was great!
