“Creekside is Paradise”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Can't beat the Creekside for friendliness and hominess. Wouldn't go anywhere else. The Innkeepers make you welcome the minute you walk in the door. They are full of great suggestions of back road places to visit, shop and sitesee. Cathy is great at marking maps of places to eat and tour and can't beat her knowledge of backroad Amish shops to visit and see. Inn is full of beautiful antiques. Will definitely return often. Don't miss this one!!!

Room Tip: All rooms are very comfortable. Can hear dlip clop of horses from all rooms

Creekside was recommended to us by a recent guest at another B and B in Gettysburg, PA., several years ago. Upon learning that we were traveling from Gettysburg to the Amish countryside but had not chosen a B &B yet, they readily recommended Creekside as they had stayed there before traveling on to Gettysburg. We called, booked a room and that began our trips to this true paradise. We have returned several times and think of it as our home away from home in that area. Cathy and Dennis are wonderful, knowledgeable and very entertaining hosts. We were warmly welcomed on our first visit and sent to the true Amish homes and businesses- not just the tourist areas.
On our second and subsequent visits, we have been greeted as welcomed friends. Now if we are planning a trip to the Northeast, it is always a welcomed chance to visit Dennis and Cathy.
The sound of the Amish buggies and horses passing by is a calming reminder of a peaceful, unhurried way of life, I love to be there to awake to that sound- especially on a Sunday morning when they are all on their way to church. Driving the roads and seeing them about their lives is so restful. The children are absolutely adorable, peering from the back of the buggies. And of course, at a B and B the breakfast is a definite draw. Cathy's are delicious!
Just writing this review makes me yearn to visit them and just this morning we were discussing doing so this fall. It is a wonderful place to go for a destination in itself and to journey from and back to each day, even if the sites to visit are quite a distance away. We will continue to go each chance we get.

I had a wonderful stay at the Creekside. The accomodations are very comfortable and the
innkeepers are most hospitable. Breakfasts are more like Sunday brunches, to me! They are yummy and very filling. The proprietors directed us to many off-the-beaten-path sites which
greatly improved our experience. I noticed I left that I didn't have my diamond stud earring. I wondered if I'd really taken on the trip. Imagine my surprise when they called to say they had found it!!!

It was a lovely experience, all around.

My wife and I visited Lancaster County in Pennsylvania where many Amish people live. The visit was a positive and interesting experience, and amazing to see how a small different community can survive and thrive. We stay in the small village named Paradise at “the Creekside Inn” in the middle of Amish-land. It is a charming old house where Cathy and Dennis Zimmermann run bed and breakfast. Two warm and friendly people who took very good care of us during our stay with good advice about where to go and what to see. Our room “Witmer Room” room was in old style, spacious with a very good bed, fast internet, TV and a well functioning bath. The breakfast was an old traditional American breakfast, delicious and plentiful. We can very warmly recommend this bed and breakfast inn.

We returned to the Creekside Inn for another five day stay after a very comfortable visit previously. It was like going back home. Dennis and Cathy are genuinely glad to see you return and we picked up our conversations like old relatives (the good ones!). Great food, comfortable room, and they know everything about the area. We travel a great deal and this is one of the great spots!

We came across Creekside Inn by accident a few years ago and have been coming back ever since. The innkeepers, Dennis and Cathy, and warm and knowledgeable. The location of the inn is perfect - set back a bit from the main road but close enough to see and hear the buggies go by.

There are several different rooms at different prices. We chose the most expensive, a two room suite called Creekside Suite, because it gave me the opportunity to go on the computer (Wifi is free) and watch TV while my husband prefers to go to bed earlier. We have stayed during both summer and winter and in the winter, there is a fireplace and Dennis starts it for us at the time we tell him. So cozy. We like to go in both winter and summer. The smaller rooms are are a true bargain, given the comfortable beds, private baths in all rooms, a/c and heat in all rooms,TV in all rooms.

There is much to enjoy in the area, from riding through the Farmlands to actual tours and the hosts know how to guide you according to your interest.

Breakfasts are delicious, with juice, fruit, breads, main course, and coffee, tea or chocolate. It is served at 8:30AM although coffee is available earlier and everyone is very friendly.

We like it here so much that we purchased a gift certificate for a friend. I have no complaints at all and it goes without saying that we'll continue to return.

Room Tip: If you want large rooms, choose one of the suites or the room right next to the Creekside Suite. If...

This inn is located in a perfectly relaxing setting amid the rolling hills and farms of Amish country. The house is beautiful and tastefully decorated, and the room (Cameo) was spacious, well-appointed, and had a incredibly comfortable bed. The hosts were welcoming, affable, and gave great recommendations about local attractions and restaurants. The breakfast was fantastic.

We will definitely be back, and recommend this inn whole-heartedly.
