Had a really great time and the jousting event was wonderful! The biggest drawback would be that we had a person in a wheelchair with us and it was difficult to navigate through the crowds at times and very difficult to get a position where she could see the jousting event! Overall, we really enjoyed the day and hope to... More

Our kids purchased us tickets to the Mystery Dinner Theater at the Mount Hope Winery Mansion for Feb 6, 2016. What a great Christmas gift. Before the dinner, we stopped by the gift store where we were offered free wine tasting for the products that are produced by the winery. We have been to dinner theaters in the past but... More

I love this place for so many reasons, but I'll only name a few of the reasons the Ren Faire is my favorite. Firstly, I always feel nostalgic whenever I visit (my dad used to take me here all the time as a child. I'm in my 20's now and we still go every October). Secondly, The actors are top... More

A very pleasant experience for friends and family. The people working the Renn Faire truly enjoy their jobs and what they're doing. I can seem a bit expensive to start, but you wont find a more unique experience anywhere in PA. Even when the lines to get in get backed up, like my most recent experience, the entertainers will leave... More

I love coming here. This time it was for the Christmas show, but they also hold the PA Renaissance Faire here, as well as other seasonal events - Celtic, Poe, etc. The shows are great. The characters are alot of fun. There is the winery on-site. If you see a show, there is a bar in the mansion where you... More

My husband and I have visited the estate on several occasions during the Renaissance Faire. We've always had a grand time. What's not to love about soup in a bread bowl or walking around with a turkey leg?! The craftspeople and performers are top-notch! The only one I've had issue with is the "Baby Dragon" vendor. To me, responsible pet... More

I had the chance to enjoy the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire on a "School Day," and because of that, many of the vendors were not open. Those that were had a limited, one and two item menu to offer the students. Those vendors that were open, and the theme as well as the actors all make for quite an event. It's... More
