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.

Room Tip: The garden suite has its own balcony and faces the rear, but ALL the rooms are beautiful!

Vicki - Thanks so much for posting your reivew AND pictures! I'm especially happy to receive yours because I was not able to be here for two of your breakfasts. Looks like Bruce did a good job while I was gone! After 15 years in the business, we still try to keep breakfasts interesting and fun. Just like our guests!

We spent a girls weekend at The Artist Inn B&B and had a wonderful time. We had the Garden Suite and the Rose Room, plenty of space to lounge and play games. Our breakfasts' were not only eye appealing but also delicious ... as evidenced by the pictures I put on facebook. We also enjoyed a wine and cheese tasting tour which ended with a wonderful dinner at Lily's on Main. Jan was a wonderful tour guide and fit in with our group. We also enjoyed all of Bruce's wonderful art work ... a purchased one of his books "Cattle Drive" so I could share with everyone else.

Robin - thanks for posting a review about our inn, and especially about the Wine and Cheese Tour. You had a great group and it was fun to spend the day with you - showing off some of my favorite places in Lancaster County. Glad you could all get away and spend some time with each other - it's important!

We went to The Artists Inn for our Anniversary. Jan and Bruce were wonderful. We stayed in the Garden Suite and it was so lovely with a covered porch outside. The breakfeast was AMAZING! Jan cooked up such wonderful food! My husband and I felt like we knew them both and it was our first time there.

We will be going back and do recommed to others to go What a Wonderful B&B. It is so relaxing to look out at green pastures and buggies going by.

We stayed in one of the cottages owned by the owners. The cottage was spacious, clean, beautifully decorated and everything we needed was available. The price was very reasonable too. It was a great deal.

My Husband and I recently visited PA, we were traveling through the Amish Country and had reservations to stay at The Artist's Inn and Gallery in Terre Hill. We stayed in the well appointed Garden Suite which had a lovely patio overlooking the gardens. Jan and Bruce told us about a wonderful covered bridge and a great place for dinner. After dinner we sat on the porch upstairs watching the full moon and the fire flies. Breakfast was delicious and Bruce's artwork is amazing, we purchased an early holiday gift from Bruce for one of our sons, we know he will love the picture. Next time we are in the amish country we will definitely stay at the Artist's Inn and Gallery! Thank you for a wonderful experience!! The Blakes

Stuart and Marcia - Thanks so much for posting a review. The Garden Suite is a favoirte room - mainly because of the private porch - the best place to enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning or a glass of wine at night! We wish you safe travels back to California, and if business (or family) bring you back East again, we'd be honored if you'd include a trip to The Artist's Inn on your visit.

No , this was not our silver wedding anniversary. It was our 25th visit to the Artist Inn. We always enjoy our trips to Lancaster Co. but it is extra special staying at the Inn. Terre Hill is such a sweet, special little little town. It is such a treat to relax in a beautiful inn, listening to the clip clops of the Amish buggies as they pass by. Bruce and Jan are fabulous hosts and are always helpful in giving us guidance for fun places to go, and things to do. It is hard to describe in words and to do justice to the Delicious breakfasts that we enjoy. We are always served a 5 course meals, and it's fun to listen to all the wonderful comments from first time guests. Thank you Bruce and Jan for another wonder weekend at The Artist Inn.

This was our second stay at The Artsist Inn in the garden Suite. This time we enjoyed a mini family reuinon with some family members that we had not seen in many. many years. We had a great time sitting on the beautiful porch, getting reaquainted. Jan and Bruce recommended some great places to see as we wondered through the beautiful countryside. Bruce and Jan go out of their way to make you feel at home. Breakfast was fabulous. It is a must stay place if you travel to the Amish area of PA. Rick and Debbie Hice, Seminole FL

Room Tip: The Garden Suite has a lovely private porch and an awesome massage shower.

Debbie and Rick - Thanks so much for posting a review. It was great to see you again. If I recall correctly, you picked one of the most beautiful days of the summer to visit - crisp and clear in the valley with a wondeful breeze and warm sun. We're so glad you enjoyed your visit.
