The Apple Binn was a delightful experience during a mid-week stay in the Lancaster - Amish area. Even though we were the only guest, safety practices at the AB Inn were thorough in every respect. We could not have been more pleased with Karen, owner and host, whose breakfast was a first class dining pleasure.

We stayed in the small cottage out back, and had a nice relaxing time. The breakfast was wonderful and we had a great time. We were close to Lancaster City for some great restaurants, and also close to the attractions of Lancaster County.

We arrived during the pandemic and Karen was extremely careful with the precautions we needed to take and made sure the Apple Bin was perfect for our healthy stay. Karen and Tom were the most best hosts ever. They made us feel like it was our home. The Bin was unbelievably clean and warm. A real step back in time when hospitality and warmth were common. I would recommend anyone stay here. It was a wonderful experience. Thank you Karen and Tom for a delightful stay.

We stayed during the covid 19 pandemic, so out stay was different from what it fully could be. We opted to have our breakfast in our room each morning, instead of going to the common area and eating with the other guests. The food was delivered shortly before or promptly at 8 am as the inn keeper said it would be. The food was delicious, and definitely could tell it was home made. We look forward to returning at another time, when we can be more out and about and not so to ourselves, to get the full experience.

With all the Covid concerns we weren’t sure what to expect, however, Karen and Tom quickly eased our minds with their extra precautions and guidelines. Everything was sparkling clean and sanitized, yet warm and inviting. We enjoyed a fire pit in the evening with other guests and a delicious breakfast in the morning, all physically distancing but still enjoying the company. The attention to detail down to the homemade cookies, Wilbur chocolates and crisp apples in our room did not go unnoticed. They are also very knowledgable about the area and gave us great ideas of what to do during our stay. We would definitely stay again and highly recommend!
