We stayed four nights and we couldn't have had a better time. The owners Scott and Diane were so nice and informative about things to do. The room was great and the breakfast were delicious. I would recommend this as a place to stay to anyone wanting to stay in a bed and breakfast.

The house is beautifully and artfully decorated, and the gardens are a delight. Breakfasts are not to be missed, and homemade cookies, along with self serve coffee, cappuccino, tea, latte and...

My husband and I were recently in the Lancaster area and were interested in touring the Amish community. Our hosts were very knowledgeable about the area and the best way to see the Amish in an "untouristy" kind of way. We thoroughly enjoyed their suggestions and our stay. The breakfasts were fabulous as well as the conversations and the friendships...
