“Exceptional, family-friendly B&B made our Lancaster County experience truly unique”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012

My husband, two young sons, friends visiting us from Madrid, and I spent a long weekend at Mussers' B&B. It was not my family's first time to the area but the first time we actually loved where we stayed. Mussers' is historic - nearly 200 years old yet it's been very well maintained and modernized. The decor is beautiful and the suites are quite large - rather that of a full-on apartment than what one would expect from a B&B. The breakfast was delicious, healthy (lots of fresh fruit and yoghurt and other yummy stuff) and all came from local farmers. They were also able to accommodate my son who has severe food allergies.

The best feature was Barbara, the owner, who was so friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Before arriving, she provided us with a number of suggestions she thought would be fun/interesting given we had a brood of young kids and visitors from Spain with us. We followed her recommendations and I feel we had a truly unique Lancaster County experience. One of the highlights was our visit to the New Holland Stables where they auction off horses every Monday morning - Amish, Mennonites, farmers, etc. all under one roof to purchase livestock. Interesting, indeed! She also drove us (we followed her) to several PA covered bridges as she wanted to make sure we were able to see a few of the special ones without getting lost.

We had a truly wonderful experience. We hope to head back this fall.

We have stayed at Musser's Organic B&B a few times and can't wait to return. Bab puts extra care and attention into each stay, from freshly squeezed juice awaiting you in the fridge, to breakfast made with local organic fruits, even berries from her property. The suites have private entrances, and are beautifully and detailed decorated in local history. She cleans with organic products and uses only organics in the breakfasts. This is very important to us. She is also family friendly, my son started staying here at one and a half and Barb has been so wonderful with him. Playing with him at breakfast, inviting us for walks with her in the evening on the back property. My son also to play all over the big back yard. Location is great for those going to local attractions or historic sites. Barb has a lovely library too where one can curl up with a good book and soak in the refreshing PA Dutch air. She puts extra care into every aspect of your stay while giving you all the privacy you need or want. She has even wrapped lovely cake to part with in beautiful papers and bow. If you want a wonderful B&B experience in the area, this is the place. Barb will make you feel as if you are an old friend coming to stay.

Lastly, my son has multiple severe food allergies and she has gone out of her way to make us things that he could eat and avoids bringing out things he has to avoid. No other place I know would go out of their way to make a person feel so included.

We recently visited the Lancaster area to see a show at Sight and Sound. instead of the usual vanilla motel chains, we decided to try a Bed and Breakfast. I found Musser's and liked that it was a historic home, could accomodate all three of us, and had an outside private entrance. We had a wonderful stay and were thrilled by the historic feeling of the home in a charming village. Several times we heard Amish buggies drive by the road.
Barb was very nice and welcoming. The home was exceptionally clean and we had plenty of room. We slept great on a very comfortable bed and breakfast was awesome. We had a delightful gourmet breakfast of fresh fruit, cereal, yogurt, waffles, and bacon. The granola cereal (a secret Musser recipe) was terrific and the bacon was the best we had every had.

Room Tip: The upper suite had two bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen, and a bath.

I was looking for a peaceful, child-friendly, and eco-conscious bed and breakfast for a reunion with some old college friends. We couldn't have found a better place! The B&B has historic character and beautiful woodwork without being overly stylized and felt spacious and airy. The common room was perfect for playing cards in the evening, and the garden out back was a relaxing spot for a lazy Sunday morning. Barb, the host, was more than accommodating. She added so many wonderful memories to our trip! Breakfasts were delicious- local amish yogurt, artful fruit salads, homemade jams and granola, fresh waffles, and egg souffle were just some of the wonderful treats she prepared- and she graciously brought some extra toys and games out for the toddler in our group. On saturday we enjoyed kayaking in the Susquehanna River, and dined at fantastic restaurants in Lancaster. Sunday we planned to tour an Amish farm, but were so comfortable at the B&B that we just relaxed there, instead. The experience exceeded my expectations, and I hope to return.

My husband and I live in the Philly area and we stayed at the Musser's B&B so he could experience authentic Lancaster county. It was a fabulous experience! Our room was spacious and filled with fascinating antiques from the area. I was particularly interested in the many quilts that are displayed throughout the B&B. The hostess is very informative and answered all our questions about the Amish and gave us helpful tips on what to see and do. If you are looking for a relaxing getaway I would strongly recommend that you stay here.

The hostess, Barb Musser, was wonderful and made us feel SO welcome. We didn't arrive until 11:00 PM and she was still waiting up for our arrival so she could show us to our room(s). My husband and I took our "Navy" daughter and her boyfriend for a week's vacation in Pennsylvania and we spent the first 3 nights at Mussers' B & B. Barb's breakfasts were wonderful and featured the fresh produce of the area. We left the breakfast table each morning completely satisifed. The Inn is located in an area that is easily accessible to the attractions Lancaster/Intercourse area. My only regret is that we didn't spent all SIX nights at this lovely Inn and Barb's warm hospitality. We will return to this Inn and stay longer!
