I can't recommend this inn highly enough. I will try to break everything down..
Location-Yes, its a little off the beaten path, but thats why I visited Lancaster County. Not only to vacation, but to view the beautiful countryside. This place does just that. Every night my husband and I sat out on the side porch and had a great view of the farms behind town. Another reason not to mind the location is a lot of the attractions in Lancaster County are spread out, so you will probably have to do some traveling to each location anyway. It was beautiful!
The inn-The inn is very beautiful! We stayed in the rose suite. The roses painted on the wall were very pretty. We also enjoyed the sitting room that the room had. The bed was comfortable (king size) and I slept like a baby. Each night the bed is turned down for you after you come back from a day away and there are homemade chocolates waiting for you on the bed. It was a delicious treat after a long fun filled day in the area. There is a sitting room downstairs which is filled with Bruces art. Be sure to check it out. We couldn't help, but purchasing a few before we left. We loved it!
The Innkeepers-They were very nice and friendly. We were supposed to arrive by 7 according to the check in times, but were stuck in horrendous traffic around the D.C. and Baltimore area. Bruce understood and was very accomadating. He even asked us to get dinner on the way since things closed early there instead of asking us to check in there first. We had the romance basket placed in our room and the gifts in it were lovely-especially the godiva chocolate. They made sure at breakfast time we were taken care of..speaking of breakfast...
Breakfast-Besides the innkeepers one of the BEST things about this place is the breakfast. Everything was delicious! You get four courses served to you by candlelight. To give you an idea of what kind of breakast you may get. The first day we had: Cinnamon Biscuits with apple butter, cantelope with a blueberry banana sauce, sage sausage, three cheese crustless egg quiche, roasted tomatoes, and brownies. The second day we had: Pumpkin Spice Bread with pumpkin butter, blueberries and strawberries w/cream, smoked ham, sweet potato home fries, lemon poppyseed waffles w/ maple syrup. and chocolate chip zuchinni bread. Third day we had: Coconut muffins, fresh watermelon, hot cinnamon apples, bacon, and some sort bread, egg, cheese, pepper, onion, corn casserole. along with lemon bars. Every single thing was superb.
I HIGHLY recomend this place and we will be back the next time we stay in Lancaster County.
