Very beautifully landscaped grounds with lots of variety of flowers which lends itself to their name. Owners were working in the garden when we arrived. Home is traditional country furnishings which are up to date and the house extremely clean. I do prefer sitting by ourselves at breakfast as I'm in the hospitality business and sometimes when away just want... More

I called the B&B before our arrival to ask about restaurant recommendations and were given 3 names and numbers, we choose one and the restaurant was fabulous! Ruth was very helpful and pleasant to deal with. Ruth showed us our room upon arrival and showed us the TV room, game room and breakfast area....she made us feel at home. Ruth... More

We stayed in the thyme room during our long weekend to Lancaster. There were no TVs in the rooms but that was ok for us as we wanted to get away for a weekend. There was, however, a very noisy drippy pipe right behind the headboard of the bed. Overall, it felt like we were staying at my grandmothers house... More

I am a business traveler who got tired of the typical business-class hotel an opted for this unique B&B. It was a fun week with an A+ Breakfast (unique menu each day) and a comfortable room. Don and Ruth made me feel at home and were accommodating with my need for an early departure to a client site (high marks... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night. The house is beautiful and the surroundings were gorgeous. The room was nice and the breakfast was very good. I don't usually care for breakfast, but was more than pleased with what we were served. Don and Ruth were welcoming.

Arriving for a two night stay, we found our lodging quite easily and were greeted warmly and introduced to e home and our room. We stayed in the "Country" room (upstairs, small but adequate for a couple nights) with a nice view of the beautiful gardens and the country side as well as a Amish farm across the road. A... More

Enjoyed staying here. Don and Ruth were the perfect host to my girlfriend and I. The rooms are very close together which reminded me of the house I grew up and it was a nice experience. Very cozy. Ruth and Don treated us like family. Breakfast was very filling. We had waffles and bacon with a starter of grapefruit with... More

Yes, it was an ok experience only. My husband an I spent Valentine Day at Flowers and Thyme BB. Although, it was a snowy day, the atmosphere inside was nice and cozy. We were surprised to find our room (Flower) in very small hallway the second floor, where rooms were just next to each other. Our room was very small... More

I'm sorry you felt you had a bad experience. You were in the Garden Room (we don't have a Flower Room) which has an old oak bed in the bedroom and a small sitting area and bath. While the bed is an antique, it is supported well and has a new mattress for comfortable sleeping. And sorry you did not... More

Owners Ruth and Don were the nicest people you could ever meet. The B&B was very clean, breakfast was very good and the room was very comfortable. The Hot tub was so nice to relax in and again everything for such an old house was very clean and in great shape. It was my first B&B with my wife and... More
