Kilburnie, the Inn at Craig Farm
Ranked #1 of 2 Lancaster B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 December 2010

Kilburnie, the Inn at Craig Farm, is without doubt the finest B&B we have ever experienced, and we have been in very many! The setting, home and rooms, the food, and, most importantly, the Inkeeper Johannes, all combine to give an exceptional experience. There are just no other words to use. If you only ever go to just one B&B, stay there!

After a splendid one night stay last year, we came back for two nights.

Having spent a few days driving, and staying in (albeit very good) chain hotels, Kilburnie has a very magical feel.

It was just as nice this second time, and we had time to enjoy the area. A walk in the woods, and a tour of some of the farm gave a better idea of the estate. Due to a heat wave (90F+) it was also just enjoyable to sit on the balcony or in the comfy sitting room.

I think next year will be two nights as well.

We sought reasonably priced, comfortable lodging, close to our business destination. To our great surprise, we found this historical gem in the midst of gorgeous countryside, and the penultimate innkeeper, Johannes. We stayed an extra day to enjoy the wonder. You must stay here, whether on business, on the road to another destination, for a romantic getaway, or for another special occasion. There are trails from the inn through the adjacent countryside that are particularly spectacular with fall leaves this time of year. If you wish (and you should), Johannes will give you a fascinating history and tour of Kilburnie and Craig Farm. While serving a scrumptuous breakfast he has prepared himself, he will also share his personal life achievements, adventures and plans.

I wanted a nights accomodation near Lancaster in the middle of a 675 mile drive. Normally I chose a Best Western or equivalent, but could not find one the area that I liked the look of. Kilburnie was in the correct location and we thought, even though it is a bit more expensive than our normal $100 rate, it looked nice.

We arrived about 6pm, the welcome was warm, and we had a tour of the house. Everything was perfect and the website cannot do the place justice. The rooms are beautiful, the bathroom pure luxury and the setting perfect. As we had had a large lunch we decided to have a picnic on the balcony, outside our room. It was like being royal guests for the night.

Breakfast in english B&Bs is normally very good. This breakfast was exceptional in both cooking and presentation.

We left 15 hours after arriving. We talked about the experience a lot over the next 6 hour drive

Next year, we will stay two nights.
