Looking for a bed and breakfast Lancaster PA? Have you ever stayed in a bed and breakfast? The Historic Smithton Inn, located in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, is a romantic bed and breakfast Lancaster PA. It’s a fantastic option for a B&B destination in Amish Country. Here are the top reasons why staying at a bed and breakfast in Lancaster should be part of your Lancaster getaway plan.
If these walls could talk! A Lancaster bed and breakfast, unlike a Lancaster hotel or motel, is a destination in its own rite. The Historic Smithton Inn; for example, was built in 1763 as a stagecoach stop along the route that connected Harrisburg and Philadelphia called the Downington-Paxton Pike. When you stay here, you stay in a building where early colonial travelers stayed, where George Washington COULD have stayed!
One of the best things about B&Bs in Lancaster PA is that they’re all unique. Some are large Victorians with sweeping views, others are mid-sized colonial stone mansions with primitive décor, and some are small and charming with only two or three guest rooms. Part of the fun of staying in a B&Bs is discovering what’s unique about each one and embracing it. And just like each building and guest room will be unique, so will the innkeeper who runs the PA boutique hotel. The person who runs a B&B is typically friendly, very knowledgeable about the area and eager to ensure that your stay is exceptional.
Bed and Breakfasts in Lancaster have owners that tend to be as meticulous with their property’s grounds as they are with their guest rooms. At the Historic Smithton Inn, there are a number of outside spaces on the grounds for guests to enjoy including a firepit, glider chairs under a shade tree, and front porch rockers. Our gardens provide beautiful flowers, vegetables and herbs to enhance a guest’s stay. And if you like to take a morning or evening walk, there are a number of great trails, parks and neighborhood routes that guests can explore and enjoy… and you’ll likely see a horse drawn buggy or two – you are in Amish Country after all!
A few Bed and Breakfasts in Lancaster PA, including the Historic Smithton Inn, have on-site bars and/or restaurants. Sometimes you just don’t feel like driving for dinner. It’s a treat for guests to experience live music, a Mediterranean Bistro menu, and fantastic local wine, beer and spirits, right where they’re spending the night. Sit under the stars by the firepit, cozy up under Edison bulbs in our outdoor courtyard, or enjoy your meal at our cozy first-floor wine bar.
As the name would suggest, BREAKFAST is a big deal at Lancaster B&Bs. Guests enjoy a homemade breakfast made from farm-to-table ingredients each morning at the Historic Smithton Inn. At certain times during the year we offer a special mess-free menu for teleconferencing too! Another nice option for guests at the Historic Smithton Inn is that breakfast is served when YOU want it, between 8 – 10 am (or earlier by request). Most Lancaster inns are also prepared to accommodate special dietary needs and requests.
