Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 11, 2010

Only perfect accommodations could have matched our perfect weather, and it did! Janis and Ann are attentive to every detail. The historic house is decorated impeccably while amazingly cozy. Waking to the aroma of breakfast was heavenly and the experience matched the anticipation. Even still, breakfast seemed to include daily homemade surprises. An in-house massage emphasized a relaxing weekend.

Our room was comfortable and cozy. Ann and Janis made sure that everything was just so and provided invaluable tips and recommendations for local history, entertainment ,and dining.

We look forward to future visits!

My wife and I recently spent three nights at the King's Cottage B&B and we loved it. We choose a different B&B from Select Registry each year, and we definitely made the right choice this year. The drive from upstate NY to Lancester was very scenic. Our check-in was smooth, and Ann gave us a tour of the B&B before bringing us to our room (the Queen room). The room was great, it had a private bath and really comfy bed. Janis and Ann's attention to detail is apparent in all aspects of the B&B. The inn is both elegant and cozy at the same time. The Lancester area has many great attractions, and printed directions were provided to pretty much any place we wanted to go. The breakfasts were fantastic ( we had Ham and Cheese Crepes, Broccoli Fritatta, and French Toast the three mornings we were there), and there was always fresh pie or cookies waiting for us when we got back from day's activities. Overall, our stay was great, the only problem was that it was too short!

We stayed for just one night for our anniversary and had a Wonderful time! The Carriage house was so nice because you had your own separate enterance and felt secluded. The place was very clean and the bed was very comfortable!! Breakfast in the morning was delicious delivered in the picnic basket and let us have our privacy. We would like to make it an annual tradition!

We're all looking for that perfect get-away whether it's for 2 days or a week. Someplace special, different from home but still has a homey feel. A place you'll be cosseted but not smothered. And it would it be delightful if it's restful yet stimulating and ideally situated near places of interest offering new sights and experiences, A hard bill to fill, right? I thought so too until I chanced upon King's Cottage B & B in Lancaster, PA. It's got all the key elements; an inviting home of character, beautifully appointed rooms, inspired dining, good location, easy comfort, not too over the top and still affordable. All the heady top notes complemented by a collection of little pleasures. So what makes King's Cottage stand apart? That's easy. The inspired bass notes here are Janis, Ann and Sampson. This trio suffuses the happy potion with warmth, sparkle and ingenuity. They are the lifeblood of this little gem and their dream is the gift they hope to share with everyone. Treat yourself to the King's little pleasures and tell them Deborah told you to stop in.

King's Cottage B&B was wonderful! From the gourmet breakfast and super comfy beds, to the warm and friendly hosts. We could not have asked for a more beautiful place or more relaxing and pampering experience. Can't wait to stay again!!

Janis and Ann are wonderful hosts who truly care about the experience their guests have. The room was very cozy and beautifully decorated. They've thought of everything including directions for everything from how to get to local sites and restaurants to a delicious breakfast. The lovely grounds are well maintained as is everything inside. We'll definitely go back again.

My husband and I stayed for two nights in February. I was very impressed by the attention to detail here - we got restaurant recommendations in our confirmation email and the house's distinctive touches were charming...rose petal bath soup (which I bought), tea packets with pictures of the inn and Sampson (their dog), etc. We stayed in the Majestic Chambre, which was originally the house's dining room if I remember correctly. It's a beautiful room which separates the jacuzzi bathroom from the bedroom with a swinging door. I imagine this was purposely not removed when converting the home to a proper b&b in an effort to drown out the noise. The downside to this room - which surprised me seeing as it is the most expensive one in the actual house - is its location. It is directly across from the kitchen and even with the extra swinging door, we could hear everything effortlessly....pans clanking and especially the dog barking. It felt like we were waking up in someone's home. Now I know a b&b IS a home but this extent was just a little too much. The breakfast was good - I don't think I've ever had a two course breakfast - and the afternoon snacks were tasty. Janis and Anne are helpful and just lovely women overall. The house is located right on a somewhat busy street...you won't see buggies here (or at least I didn't) but you don't have to go far to experience that. Would I go back? Probably not. But that's not because I didn't have a wonderful time - because I did - it was very nice. It just strikes me as the type of place where one time there is enough.

Thank you for highlighting, for other travelers, that a Bed & Breakfast is someone’s home. Since your posting we have tried to be aware of excess noise in the kitchen during final breakfast preparation, which usually begins around 7:30AM. We try to be as quiet as possible in the kitchen between 8:00PM to 8:30AM. We also try to keep Sampson, our Bichon, upstairs until after breakfast but sometimes our guests ask to see him before they leave. Should you decide to experience more of Lancaster County (theaters, art galleries, vineyards, auctions, museums) may we suggest a stay in our separate Carriage House. We are glad you had a wonderful time on a snowy weekend in February in Lancaster County.
