We stayed here for one night following 12 days of the big cities (Washington, New York, Boston) and couldn't have asked for a nicer contrast. As a couple of weary Brits on our way back home, this little oasis of calm was just what we needed before the final leg of our journey. Bruce and Jan made us feel so... More

Andy - Thanks so much for posting. After we heard your travel schedule, we were tired too! We love Lancaster County - the scenery relaxes you instantly. Maybe on the next trip you can stay and explore the county a little more - from a hot air balloon, bike or scooter! Glad you arrived home safely. More

Lois - Thanks so much for writing. We love cyclists! They slow down enough to discover hidden treasures that many people miss by driving by. And our barn is perfect for storing the bikes when not in use. We hope you visit again, because the weather you brought that week was perfect! More

My wife and I recently spent a night in the kris kringle room--don't be put off by the name--it's very tastefully done and only mildly "Christmas-y". Only improvement would be higher pressure in shower... Breakfast was excellent, as was hostess Jan. Her husband, the artist, wasn't there, but his artwork was interesting, to say the least. Take note of the... More

Ian - Thanks for writing about the inn - and also about the shower pressure. We're looking into that and will probably change out the showerhead. We are on city water and our pressure is good - in fact, we had to put in pressure reducers years ago! So I'm thinking the culprit may be the showerhead. We're glad you... More

What a gorgeous cottage with great attention to detail from fine quality tea cups to a deep spa – best place we’ve stayed in during our family adventure around the world.

Let me start this review with the pertinent information... this was our 13th visit to the wonderful Artist's Inn.
