Brad and Keith are keenly aware of the many special touches that ensure their guests feel welcome and comfortable. The Inn is beautifully appointed and immaculate. The food was delicious and conversation was interesting and fun-filled. Great time had by all!

These guys aren't #1 B&B in Lancaster for no reason. Brad and Keith could not have done more to help make our girls' week away trip more comfortable. The rooms were comfy, the breakfasts creative and delicious. They also gave us great recommendations for places to eat, shop and sight see.

We agree with all the positive comments from so many reviewers, about the gracious welcome from Brad and Keith, the cleanliness and charm of the B&B, and the well-prepared locally-sourced breakfast. I'd like to mention the depth of insight we gleaned about the local Amish and Mennonite and "English" populations, and how they interact. On arrival, we read the multi-page...
