Reviewed November 22, 2010

Pam & Dallas are the most welcoming hosts. They can't do enough to make your stay pleasant and enjoyable. Nothing is too much trouble.
Loveable Quincy the dog was very much part of the wonderful experience.
The breakfasts are awesome and the rooms are spacious, comfortable and all one would want.
Spoil yourself and enjoy this great family and their environment.

My husband and I stayed here this past weekend in the Sunporch room on the second floor. The house is quite beautiful, old and lots of charm, and the innkeepers were friendly and informative ( and their dog Quincy was very sweet and well behaved ). The room was a bit smaller than it looked in the photo online, but had a cute little private deck with a table and two chairs ( the backyard that it overlooked was a bit messy, but it was a great place to relax and have a glass of wine in the evening or a coffee in the morning ), and the bed was extremely comfortable ( down comforter, good quality linens and comfortable mattress ). There were little extras that made it feel special, like chocolates, a romantic game for couples, magazines ,wine glasses and bottle opener, newspaper, pamphlets and maps on local attractions, luxurious bath robes, toiletries in the bathroom, etc.
The location was near a main street so I was concerned the traffic would be noisy at night, but it died down early and we had a wonderful night sleep. Breakfast in the morning exceeded our expectations. Overall it was a nice stay and I would recommend it.

The owner meets you as one of their own family member. The room (Susquehanna Room) was beautiful and it was extremely clean, and had the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in, the bathroom was very clean and the shower had a rain forest for two, which was Fantastic. Also, the thick plush towels and liens were very comforting and made you think that you were home. Pam and Dallas goes the extra mile to make sure you are satisfied with your entire stay, they will give you pointers and directions to any where you want to go see or even eat. All I can say about locations; is location, location! You are near everything that you would like to see or visit. Breakfast was awesome! One day we had french toast and the next was an egg soufflé, each breakfast was paired with a homemade baked treat and fresh fruit. We had schedule a balloon ride and had to leave by 5:00am and there were muffins and hot coffee waiting for us, this is how Pam and Dallas goes the extra mile. Last but not least was Quincy, Pam and Dallas' dog; he is cute and energetic and makes you think that you are at home. I highly recommend B.F. Hiestand House, I'll definitely go back. Great Job ! Pam & Dallas Thanks for sharing your Home with US...

This was our first trip to Lancaster over night, and our first ever B & B. I did some searching, and read some reviews and we choose to stay here. It was a great location, not far from many of the attactions but far enough away that you were not in the hussle and bussle of it all. The room excedded our expectation, it was a nice size suite, sitting room, huge bath, and a bedroom. Felt like our own mini apartment and the pictures online are exactly what you get (which isnt always the way)..... I wish we would have stayed more than a night. Very restful, and relaxing. Great inn keepers, and nice linens... sheets, towels robes! Felt just like home if not better.... I would def. go back and stay again....

A magnificent, Victorian house tastefully furnished to accommodate all guests. Hosts, food and location superb! Also, the townspeople exceptionally friendly and extended shopping within a close drive.

We had our family reunion at The BF Hiestand House this summer and it was perfect. Located right in the heart of Lancaster - it was easy to get to all the local attractions. Pam & Dallas went to great lengths to make our vacation as trouble free as possible. Breakfasts were delicious - French Toast was the family favorite. As our family occupied the entire hotel - we felt right at home. Since our family are the original Hiestands, we already had a love of the home - but Pam and Dallas have improved on everything to allow for modern conveniences while still honoring the classic architecture. We will be back and hope you will too.
