“Pam S . Great B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Great B&B the whole house is spotless . Carol and Steve where very nice and they treated each guest like royalty. They went out of the way to be accommodating to each guest. The breakfast were made each morning with special care. If you are planning a stay at Manheim make this your first choice.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Our family spent 3 nights here and enjoyed every minute of our visit. Our daughter and 3 grandchildren met us, and it was an ideal setting--the rooms, the animals, the breakfasts, and the location. Every morning we fed the goats, went on a pony ride, and collected eggs from (and fed) the hens. We then used Carol's itinerary ideas ad maps and had adventure-filled days. Her location is ideal for a Pennsylvania Dutch country vacation we stumbled upon this thru an Internet search, but others around the breakfast table came through recommendations of friends made years ago. We'd love to make a visit to Country Vistas a family tradition.

Room Tip: The 2-room suite was just what our family needed--2bedrooms with a spacious shared bath.

This is a farm stay bed and breakfast. We come here at least once if not twice a year since 2009. Carol and Steve, the hosts, are like family to us by now. We have 2 teenage daughters, a 9 year old girl and seven and one year old boys. The rooms are spotless and inviting. The home is relaxing and decorated with charm and warmth. During the day we go touring Amish country, sampling jams and pickles, and perhaps twisting a pretzel. We continue with outlet shopping and a visit to Hershey chocolate world. All of these activities are within a 30 minute drive. In the late afternoon, the kids run, swing, cuddle the kittens, while the teens set up their own photo shoot and Steve takes the kids for pony rides. At night, we drink tea by the fireplace conversing with the other guests as our kids play board games with theirs. But morning can't come soon enough with the delicious breakfast Carol prepares from her on fresh eggs and produce. Each season brings its own surprises, Carol makes magical things with her just picked strawberries, peaches, potatoes, asparagus... After a breakfast fit for royalty, and some fun philosophical discussions with the other guests we head out with the kids to feed the goats and gather eggs from the coop. It's easy to burn some of the breakfast off by trying to round the hens back into their house. Until next time, we can only dream of our "second home" in the country.

What a great place to stay, we are a family of 5 our children loved the animals, the pony rides and playing in the yard. The room was very nice, quiet and well appointed. The breakfast was fantastic, our only wish was that we could been able to stay longer. We loved the surrounding areas and Carol gave us a tour map to see some local sights after we left. Highly recommended.

We have enjoyed our stay in the "Country Vistas" this summer. Rooms are very spacious, clean and free of clutter. My kids enjoyed feeding animals and playing with kittens. Food was really fresh, delicious and plenty of it. Overall we had great experience.
My tips : there is no TV in the room so plan accordingly.

Just what we envisioned. Gracious hosts (Carol & Steve), delicious breakfasts, comfortable rooms and, overall, a home away from home.

We would have loved to just move in and never go home! What a beautiful home and piece of property. It was nice opportunity to slow things down and relax a bit after having visited Philadelphia, DC and Gettysburg. Would absolutely go back as well as recommend this B&B. My only regret . . . I forgot to ask Carol if she would be willing to share her recipe for baked oatmeal. DELICIOUS!

Room Tip: Pines Loft is good if you want privacy. A room in the main house would be ideal if you prefer more...
