If you are going to the central Pa area,Lancaster,Hershey,Lebanon or thereabouts, I highly recommend this place,Mt Gretna, a summer place largely but it could be great for other seasons as well, especially the fall. Close to many towns of interest,including the Penna. Dutch area, this is a location apart. It is a part of a community that has been around for a couple of hundred years and is still going strong. TheMt Gretna Inn is the only facility that one can rent by the night,the others being houses or cottages for longer stays. In summer, one can walk or bike everywhere,to the lake,the ice cream shop, the theater,restaurants,etc. It is designed for this. During the season there are many options for entertainment ; plays,music,etc. If you seek quiet, it is there.If you need more action, this is available too.
Now,for the inn itself. It has been brought into this century very beautifully by two partners who have made the choice of which room to stay in very difficult. Each has its own beauty and character and each is uncommonly large.Ours had its own very large porch with plenty of seating and a table and chair if we wanted to eat outside. Our room also had a gas fireplace which was cosy on the chill mornings. We left our door open to the porch to enjoy the wonderful bird song and breezes in the morning. For those who had no private porch,not to worry. A huge front porch wrapped around the property for all to sit and rock or glide.
Coming down to breakfast was a delight. The food was yummy and the service impeccible. Each meal started with fresh fruit aplenty,followed by coffee cake and juice.Then came the hot food : my favorite was the French Toast stuffed with what seemed to be ricotta cheese with a wonderful sauce and the biggest and juiciest sausage I have had. I would like to be eating there right now. Of course,one had plenty of coffee and tea.
Speaking of coffee, right outside our room was a wonderous contraption for our use : a machine which made several kinds of coffee and tea and chocolate in a couple of minutes any time.There was also a refrigerator always stocked with water and soda. We kept our picnic supplies in it as well.
I would highly recommend this inn without any reservation.
