“The Perfect Weekend Getaway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

Our second visit to The Artist's Inn and Gallery was every bit as good as the first -- this is now our "go to" place! We had a weekend getaway where we stayed in the house (Kris Kringle Room) rather than The Stone Cottage (our first visit). While the Stone Cottage offers privacy and is perfect for the family getaway (our 10-year old was along on the first visit); the house offers all the charms and love you expect from a first class B&B and is perfect for couples. Jan and Bruce have a beautiful home -- Bruce's artwork and books grace the home while Jan's love of cooking was on full display in the most delicious breakfast my wife and I have ever had in more than 30 B&B stays in PA, MD, and VA. We were once again wowed and will be back again very soon!

Room Tip: Every room is perfect!

Green Features: Jan and Bruce fully support recycling and remind guests how they can help in their room fact sheet as well as during their tour and reception.

Rick - Thanks for staying with us and posting a review. Breakfast is always fun when there's someone as kind and gracious....and FUNNY as you. Loved the stories and can't wait to hear more when you and Lori return. After all, there's more antiques waiting......

We arrived on a Thursday in October and were warmly greeted by Jan. We asked at the time the reservation was made if she could arrange a meal with an Amish family and she did. We had a wonderful time. Her breakfasts served on Friday, Sat. and Sunday were wonderful. Can't think of anything to improve them. For our daily sightseeing, she made many wonderful suggestions. It was a great vacation for the five of us and we would definitely book there again. I purchased one of her husband's paintings which are on display there, and I love it.

Room Tip: The bed in the Kris Kringle Room was not very comfortable.

Kay - I'm so glad I was able to meet everyone in your group. It is wonderful that the five of you can get away every year. We were happy to accommodate your group from the cottage - and I think the rest of the guests loved getting to know you as well. We are so sorry that you were uncomfortable in the Kriss Kringle bed and wished we would have known while you were here. It is a very firm mattress, and we have a featherbed that we could have placed on top. I often take the featherbed off for the warmer months, but would be happy to put it on anytime. One guest described it as sleeping in a cloud.

My husband and I stayed here this weekend. It was our first B&B experience and it did not disappoint! Jan was very kind and showed us all of the extras the Inn had to offer... books, dvds, cds, fresh baked cookies, drinks, etc. whenever you want them. We stayed in the Kris Kringle room and it was very tastefully decorated, immaculately clean and provided a cozy, romantic place for us to stay the night. Breakfast was fantastic... we had great company too! Overall, a wonderful experience and we can't wait to go back again. Thanks Jan!

Amanda - Thanks for posting! Breakfast was especially fun that morning - such an adventurous group! We're happy to introduce you to the world of bed and breakfasts - each one is as different as the owners, but all offer clean and comfortable accommodations, friendly hosts and great breakfasts. And all innkeepers know the best places to explore, shop, and eat!

Rented the Olde Stone Cottage for four adults and two small children. Very comfortable and private settings. Close to Amish country sites for browsing, dining, and buggy rides. Hosts are very pleasant and helpful. Kitchen was adequately stocked with basic needs for the weekend. This was our second trip to this site, and we will likely return.

Jim - thanks for bringing your family back for another stay at our cottage. We hope you liked the improvements since the last time - new fridge, new stove, a piano, and a dishwasher! We're glad you had such nice weather that you could enjoy the back yard too!

Thinking of visiting southern Pennsylvania's Amish country, book a room at the Artist's Inn, we not only were impressed with the inn which doubles as an art gallery and is completely furnished with antiques, but Jan is an excellent breakfast preparer (cook just doesn't seem appropriate). Each morning we were treated to a three course breakfast which would rival anything you'd find at a five star restaurant. Her knowledge of the area and culture is also helpful for anyone not familiar. Kris Kringle room was very comfortable. Thanks Jan, sorry Bruce had an out of town art show, maybe we can meet him next visit.

Room Tip: Book early, the more people that find this gem will make it harder to get reservation.

We stayed here for one night following 12 days of the big cities (Washington, New York, Boston) and couldn't have asked for a nicer contrast. As a couple of weary Brits on our way back home, this little oasis of calm was just what we needed before the final leg of our journey.

Bruce and Jan made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much effort for them. Their knowledge of the local area was so helpful and the breakfast was simply out of this world. The house is gorgeous and the artwork is brilliant - we liked it so much we bought some!

If we are ever back this way we will certainly be staying longer as there is certainly more to see. Thanks guys!

Andy - Thanks so much for posting. After we heard your travel schedule, we were tired too! We love Lancaster County - the scenery relaxes you instantly. Maybe on the next trip you can stay and explore the county a little more - from a hot air balloon, bike or scooter! Glad you arrived home safely.

My husband and I stayed here in August while on a cycling vacation. it is one of the best, if not the best, bed and breadkfasts I have every stayed at - Kris kringle room - spacious and lovely, wonderful ensuite washroom. Bruce and Jan are the perfect hosts - warm, friendly and knowledgeable. The breakfasts were definitely the best I have ever had - Jan is an amazing cook. It was something different every morning, and we were happy that we were cycling, just to know that we would wear off the delicious and generous several course meal! I highly recommened this bed and breakfast to anyone.

Lois - Thanks so much for writing. We love cyclists! They slow down enough to discover hidden treasures that many people miss by driving by. And our barn is perfect for storing the bikes when not in use. We hope you visit again, because the weather you brought that week was perfect!
