“Fun and comfort on the farm”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

This was an amazing experience for my whole family!! The accommodations were amazing and comfortable. The activities were more than expected and the breakfast? Well... I have never seen a breakfast like this before! It was large and delicious! Good enough for my teen to not miss it once! lol I would highly recommend this B&B. We are planning our return visit for sometime next year! (We are 9 hours away from this location) Thanks Rocky Acre Farm for the fantastic memories!

Room Tip: We stayed in the apartment. The oldest part of the house built in 1776. We absolutely loved it! Havi...

My family loves this place. We are from the Atlanta area and took a Philly/Lancaster/Hershey vacation in June 2012. Rocky Acre was our hub for Lancaster/Hershey. There is so much to do on the farm. From breakfast, the "chores" of bottle feeding the calves, feeding the goats, collecting eggs, to the fun of riding the golf cart, playing in the creek or an impromptu basketball game. Never a dull minute, unless the swing caught your eye :).
The breakfast was fantastic. My 10 year old boy & 8 year old girl have very fond memories of this place! We'd love to find a way to go back!

Our first trip to Lancaster and we lucked upon this little gem. Our 7 yr old had such fun milking cows, feeding the calves and goats, taking a pony ride, etc. The owners were very gracious and welcoming. Breakfast was fantastic - farm raised eggs, peach cobbler, 3 types of pancakes, hashbrowns with southern gravy. YUM!!! Ask for hashbrowns and gravy - to die for. Rooms were well ekpt - we had the fireplace room and enjoyed the glow of a (gas) fire.

Can't go wrong with this place. Book early though or you will miss out!

This is a family friend B7B in Mount Joy, PA. The breakfasts are plentiful and the children have plenty to do. It is a working dairy farm so if you are there at the right time, you can see a calf being born, you can collect eggs from the chicken coop, play for hours with the cats/kittens, go on a pony ride, hay ride and train ride. There is a meadow with a fire pit to enjoy a campfire and kayaks by the stream. The owners, Mr & Mrs Benner are very friendly and welcoming in their home.
This is our 5th year at this bed and breakfast with our son who is now 9. We took our 2 year old granddaughter for the first time this year and she loved it! There is plenty to do in the Lancaster area if you want to take a break from the farm.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Room Tip: The Fireplace room is spacious and has a jetted tub and of course a fireplace.

We just had our first visit to the Rocky Acre Farm. Strongly recommend this B & B for families with children aged from four into the teenage years. Do not recommend for honeymooners, singles or couples during the non-school calendar year. The Rocky Acre Farm is different from most other B & B's as it encourages the visitor to enjoy the farm during the day and evening hours The owners also encourage visitors to return by asking, while at the farm, whether you are interested in reserving the same days for the following year. While there, many of the families present had been there repeatedly for up the 14 consecutive years. The rooms are well furnished. The breakfast was presented "family style" with an abundance for excellently prepared, variety of eggs, pancakes, waffles, sausages, breads, fresh fruits, fruit cobblers and other goodies. The children and adults have a wide variety of activities available for entertainment at the farm. If your kids like kittens they have LOTS of them. The owners and staff make you feel like "family." We look forward to a return in 2013.

Room Tip: All rooms were very nice. The room on the third floor required some tricky navigating to get to.

We have been coming to Rocky Acre for the past 6 years with our 2 children. This is an incredible place for the entire family. If you like to relax , play with farm animals, go on hay rides, do farm choars and eat a great breakfast this is the place. They have many different rooms that meet requirements of almost any visitor. There are lots of local places within a 5 minute drive for lunch or dinner and they serve an incredible breakfast at the farm.
The rooms are also incredibly clean.

We stayed at the Rocky Acre in September during our kids' holiday break from school. We actually surpised the munchkins. Had all of their little suitcases packed and squeezed into our back trunk. After a long tiring morning, we asked them to relax and take a nap in the car as we decided to go for a ride. They finally woke up and found themselves in Lancaster at this great b and b! The Benners were hospitable from start to finish. We stayed at their Guesthouse which was an apartment which was just a couple of minutes car ride from the main farm and breakfast area. The apartment had a separate entrance and a swingset and trampoline which totally made our kids' stay memorable and enjoyable. The Benner family was so warm and energetic. Mr. Benner took the kids around on a cute "caterpillar" ride and hayrides. He allowed eager kids to join in and help out which was so much fun. They had a beautiful porch swing, electric golf cart (which are free to use to roam their beautiful property) and a farm that they clearly loved. They really tended to the animals, and made sure they were well fed and healthy. The kids all had a chance to collect eggs, and the breakfast was abundant and impressive. Great stay - one of our family's favorites! The kind hearts of the owners was the icing. ;)
