My husband and I stayed for one night in the Paymaster Cottage...the cottage is really beautiful. It's set a good distance away from the main house, so it's very private. It faces a creek, and we saw deer outside the window along the creek. It's also beautiful on the inside, with a king bed, fireplace, hot tub, and an updated bathroom, and a little kitchen with a stovetop, sink, small fridge, microwave, and table. One of the nicest rooms I've ever stayed in. Dishes are included. We really enjoyed our time here and wish we could have stayed longer.
The main mansion is beautiful too, although we only saw the dining room and the entranceway. Breakfast was very very good! Dawn, the innkeeper, is very nice and a great cook. She is friendly without being intrusive. We would certainly stay here again.
The wolves are also worth seeing--the tour was great (I'm going to write a separate review of that).

Three lovely guest rooms and three private cottages, all with private bath, on a relaxing 120-acre farm boarding a nature park and rolling Pennsylvania Hills. The perfect place to get away from it all, yet only minutes from the historic small towns of Lititz, Ephrata, Manheim, and all of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. ... more less
