“Fantastic Experience and Accommodations!”
Reviewed 5 August 2014 via mobile

Patricia and Ronald Ernst (the innkeepers and owners) provide their guests with a wonderful experience at this almost 250 year old home. It is next to a former grist mill (private residence) that created cannon balls during the War of 1812. Also, as many of their neighbors are Amish it is not uncommon to see Amish families pass the property in their carriages. The innkeepers have forged close relationships with many of their Amish neighbors and expanded our understanding of their lifestyle as well as dispelled misconceptions about the Amish.

The inn provides clean bedrooms with excellent air conditioning, seating and comfortable beds. Also, each room has a bathroom specifically for its occupants. In addition, the first floor has three common rooms open to all guests: the living room, family room and dining room. All of the rooms have beautiful furniture and are decorated in a manner that reflect Patricia's and Ronald's tastes.

In the morning, Ronald and Patricia both create a culinary experience for their guests in the dining room. Breakfast included warm scones, an "egg sandwich" with a whole tomato instead of bread to encapsulate the sandwich, and a slice of pie. The entire meal was made from scratch.

And finally, there are several beautiful cats on the property. If you are looking to break away from the chain hotel experience and relax, this is the place to go while in Lancaster.

The whole environment is conducive to having a relaxing stay.

The owners could not be more friendly or knowledgeable about the local area.

The bedrooms were all of good size and easy to be in.

You will need a car to get to it, and to go for an evening meal.

Breakfast was a real treat, as it was all home cooked and produced.

Would stay there again and would recommend it to you unreservedly.

Room Tip: The fireside room is the pick, even though it is on the roadside.

Thanks so much for your kind words. We know that you travel quite a bit, and we appreciate that you found our home so comfortable during your stay in Lancaster County.

PS - We agree with you about the Fireside Room. In fact it is the room we were staying in as guests about nine years ago now when we decided that we had to buy the place!

Jamie and John - We so enjoyed meeting the two of you and hearing about your exploration of the caverns nearby. We've decided to check them out ourselves. We never cease learning about our beautiful corner of the earth!

And thanks for taking the time to share your experience here at our home with other visitors. No matter how many ads we look at when we are traveling, the number one factor in making our decisions is the collective experience of other travelers.

Beautiful bed and breakfast. Stayed in the Rose room. It was cozy with a nice fireplace and private bathroom. My wife and I will definitely be making the trip back. The hosts are amazing, just like visiting family.

My husband and I recently spent a night at the Osceola Mill House B&B as part of a weekend trip, and it was absolutely wonderful! The house was beautiful and made our trip feel entirely authentic. Pat and Ron have found the ideal combination of friendliness and privacy. They are great people to talk to and are around to provide you with local history or entertaining stories, but they also make sure you have your space and privacy, which was important to us. When we arrived we were given recommendations about activities and restaurants in the area, which were all spot-on. Clean, warm, good food, and easy to find. We would absolutely recommend staying here any chance you get, as it is a great experience in a historic area of PA.

Room Tip: The Green Room had a bathroom across the hall, but we did not think twice about it. It's a beau...

I stayed here overnight with my Aunt for a birthday party in the area. The room was so cubby and clean. We stayed on the top floor (we had a bathroom in the room). I felt like I was in a doll house (In a good way!) I absolutely loved the bed, I loved the bathroom and I loved the great room. The couple that lives here and runs the place is so awesome and kind. They were extremely friendly and down to earth and made fantastic food. The breakfast we had was wonderful and delicious! I would definitely recommend this to anyone who wants a quiet, clean, home-like stay in the area.

Room Tip: We stayed on the very top floor and we had a bathroom in our room - The climb was long but it was to...
