“Goddesses' Getaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Having visited the Bird in Hand Family Inn several times over the years, it was at the top of my list for the Goddesses' Getaway so off we went. We took advantage of the package deal and got so much for our money. We actually bought two 2-night packages which then gave us free breakfast smorgasbord for all 4 days and dinner 2 nights, a dozen free cookies (or a shoo fly pie and 6 cookies or 2 shoo fly pies) from the bakery, a $5 gift certificate which we used to buy souvenir mugs, and the complimentary tour of the beautiful countryside including stops at two Amish farm/gift shops. The first night, we were able to get tickets to the musical Half-stitched which was on site and was awesome. The double queen room was comfortable enough for the four of us although I prefer a firmer mattress. We all wished the bathroom was bigger and more comfortable as far as being able to move around - perhaps a suite would have served us better but, all in all, it was a great time. We will definitely return!

Room Tip: Rooms in the pool building are newer and larger than in the front building.

Recently stayed here while on a bus tour and had a great stay. Rooms were clean, well lighted and staff was courteous and helpful. Room included a breakfast buffet which was outstanding as usual. Stayed here several times and have never been disappointed. Will definitely stay here again.

My husband and I stayed here in July 2013. We had read many reviews, some bad, some good, but decided to check it out, and hope for the best. Based on other reviews, we asked for the pool building. Our room was clean, lovely, and overlooked the pool. My husband has Parkinson's Disease, so he has some mobility issues. I mentioned this when we made our reservation, so we got a room right near the elevator, and there was also a ramp to the rooms, and the outdoor pool was "walk in" so no steps.Everyone we met was friendly, staff was helpful, food was delicious!!! This is not chi chi food, this is good, old fashioned country cooking, like I grew up on, and we loved it. (Just so you know what I'm talking about, my favorite dish was the pork and sauerkraut, which I have never had in a restaurant, but my mom used to cook when I was a child). At Bird In Hand, I ate it for every meal except breakfast, in addition to many other delicious country dishes. The pools were all great, but spent most of the time at the wonderful, outdoor pool, or at the huge, 16 person hot tub. This is a particularly great place for families as they have so much for kids to do, three pools, some arcade games, gorgeously landscaped mini golf, big, new playground equipment, walk up ice cream, and next door to the Farmer's Market. We could not have been more pleased with our stay, and told our kids and grandkids that we will be bringing them back with us next year. I think we have begun a new family tradition, and look forward to wonderful, family vacations here for many years to come.

Room Tip: Ask for the Pool Building. It is newer, and our room was perfect, including TV, and air conditioni...

I just spent two nights at the Bird-in-Hand Family Inn. This hotel is very centrally located for all Lancaster and Amish attractions. Our package included a breakfast and dinner buffet in their restaurant. The food is regional and also very good. Also many of the locals frequent the restaurant, especially for breakfast. The room I stayed in was very clean and spacious. Room amenities included a refrigerator and a 40-42 inch HD TV. Their heated indoor pool was a relaxing touch to a long day of sightseeing in Amish country.

This is a great family hotel. Centrally located in the area. The rooms are fine, just normal hotel quality, but clean. Since we have two kids under 3, we appreciated the petting zoo, playground and ability to walk to the restaurant at the corner of the property - especially when it was one of the only restaurants around that was open. Everything in town seemingly shuts down at 5pm. The pools looked nice but we didnt use them. We also didnt use the miniature golf.

Room Tip: I would avoid the pool area - seemed to be a strong "pool" chemical/warm air smell as you...

We stayed three evenings and used a 2 day and 1 day package which included morning and evening buffets, a 2 hr tour of the Armish country side, and coupons for free bakery items each day. We loved the breakfast buffets and enjoyed sitting on the front lawn in the afternoons and early evenings watching the new and old worlds pass by. The atmosphere was relaxing and family friendly.
