A New Beginning Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 22 Lancaster B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 2, 2013

My wife and I have stayed in many B & B's over the past 8 years. By far this was the best. Felt right at home as soon as we walked in. The main floor was beautifully decorated and owners Al & Denise welcomed you in like family. Our room was nicely decorated and clean. As we pocked around, the three others rooms were the same. Can't wait to stay in the one on the second floor with the deck. Breakfast was great too! What makes this B & B so great are the owners! They are friendly, caring and sweet people, so refreshing. We are looking forward to staying there again. You can't beat the price, either!

Peter & Lori – Thanks for the wonderful review! We enjoyed sitting and talking with your both about everything! It is so nice to connect with our guests in the way we connected with you and I think it may be because you remind us of our good friend Joan who has a daughter named Lori! Hopefully your trip home was uneventful (unlike the trip down :o) Thank you for staying with us, writing the review and hopefully we will see you again.
All the best,
Al & Denise

My daughter and I were visiting nearby Franklin & Marshall and picked a New Beginning B&B because it was on the recommended lodging list provided by the college. After driving 5 hours it was delightful to stay there for the night. Al and Denise couldn't be more friendly and welcoming with restaurant recommendations and information about Lancaster and F & M. We stayed in the Victorian room and had a great night's sleep and awoke to homemade french toast stuffed with lemon curd and homemade raspberry syrup - best we ever had!! We skipped lunch we were so full from our yummy breakfast and enjoyed our chocolate chip muffins (Denise provided "to go") on our long ride home. Lovely place and sure to be our parent's weekend lodging if our daughter chooses to go to F&M. Thanks for a memorable stay!

Denise and Al are real people who know what they are doing and it shows. I have nothing bad to say about the place or the people. Simply put if you are looking for a place to stay that is reasonably priced, cozy/homey, with delicious breakfast and friendly conversation then A New Beginning is the place for you. Thank you again for the lovely stay Denise and Al. Bravo.

What a special place this is!!!! Al and Denise were fabulous hosts to our cousin reunion several weeks ago. This wonderful home used to belong to our grandparents, and the love and family traditions that we enjoyed as kids still live on through these two special people. This is a home away from home... the cozy, special charm each rooms presents is unsurpassed. The wonderful smells of a country breakfast cooking is your wake up call each morning. My grandparents would be so happy to know what their old homestead has become. Thanks you Al and Denise for making all of our childhood memories come alive again. When you visit this very special place, you will take away your own special memories and two people who will instantly become your friends forever!

Martha, it was such a great pleasure on our part to host your family reunion here at A New Beginning. Hearing the stories of days past were truly inspiring to us and it was wonderful to hear the history that has passed through this wonderful home! We were so happy to accommodate you and your family here in the house that held so many happy and memorable time for you all.
We are grateful to have had you as our guests. To know that your grandparents would be proud to know that their home has been preserved as a home offering comfort and love is something very gratifying and special to us.

Denise and Al are the best host and hostess anyone could ask for. I stayed for two nights with both small children and my elderly parents. Everyone had a great time, and a lot of that was thanks to the warm and welcoming atmosphere at A New Beginning.

On the day we went to Dutch Wonderland (which is a great amusement park for younger kids) Denise offered to pick up my parents and take them back to the B&B if they got too tired to stay.

She also prepared wonderful Gluten-Free treats for my son who is allergic to wheat. She made him feel really great! Also, she prepared delicious breakfasts every morning (and even made a special breakfast for my father who is strictly a bacon and eggs guy.)

I can't say enough wonderful things about our stay. The only negative is also sort-of a positive. A New Beginning is on a pretty busy road, however, you are right next to everything you could possibly want to visit. The B&B is right down the street from Dutch Wonderland and close to amish buggy rides, farm tours, restaurants and anything else you may want to see. I highly recommend staying here, it felt like a home away from home and like Denise and Al were family. In fact, my four year old asked if we could call Denise on our way home because she missed her so much!

It was an excellent experience in every way!!!!

This is a perfect place to stay in Lancaster - charming & cozy. Denise & Al are terrific hosts. We would highly recommend the Victorian room, which is very roomy and has a private porch. There is a small refrigerator in the hall filled with drinks, but also has room for guests' personal items. In the afternoon we snacked on cupcakes, fresh peaches & lemonade. Breakfast was fantastic! Stuffed French toast, bacon, blueberry muffins, fresh strawberries & whipped cream, coffee & juices...the toast wasn't the only thing that was stuffed. A great value.

Room Tip: The Victorian Room has a private porch and is very roomy. There is A/C, ceiling fans, and a firepla...

Wow.... Talk about a new beginning! Our host Denise, went above and beyond caring for us. She recommended a great restaurant which we loved and even made reservations for us. Also, she gave us a 10% discount coupon to go with it. She even researched things for us to do in the area. As for the inn itself, can you say clean, comfy, cozy and romantic. Location was key too, as it was 10 minutes from all tourist attractions. May I also mention Denise is an excellent cook. Fresh fruit and coffee for breakfast and the creamed meat on toast was out of this world. I loved the peaches and cream too, better then then group. What else can I say, this was a great place to stay. There were even treats for us at night left in the dinning room, plus a fridge filled with goodies, beverages and snacks. There are books and nick naks around the place as well to explore and read. Our room was the Americana Room, and it was an excellent choice. New Beginnings was just like going home, yet we were 300 miles away. The experience was unforgettable . Thank you again Denise and thank you for caring for us.
