“Loves it!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

We had a wonderful time! It was nice to be so pampered. I highly recommend the massage, especially the couples massage. The decor and landscaping are beautiful. Plan to spend some time next to the pond. Do expect to drive to downtown attractions.

Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed your couples massage. The pond is very inviting in the warmer weather. We have a great close up of the pond on our facebook page and it is getting lots of likes -- we think because Sampson has a big smile while he sits on that Red Chair!

Elegant and casual does not tell the whole story. The breakfasts were exciting and served beautifully. The care, concern, and excellent suggestions and directions by the Inn Keepers Janis and Ann based on their knowledge of the Lancaster area allowed us to fill each day with a different experience. We had a complete and rewarding time staying at King's Cottage and would do it all over again because they really know how to make their guests feel comfortable and welcomed. The Inn's décor is elegant throughout with books and film CD's available. The location is convenient and the grounds are well maintained giving it a feeling of a home away from home. However it is the courtesy, warmth, and concern of the Inn Keepers that makes your stay memorable.

Room Tip: "Rooms on rear of Inn are quieter"

My Fiancé and I absolutely loved this B&B!!!! First, I must say that Ann was so incredibly friendly, and was extremely helpful in providing options as we planned our activities. The decor of the common areas were absolutely lovely, and the room was romantic and exceptionally clean. The food was extremely delicious, and the portions were just right.

The location was perfect, as well!! It is within a 20 driving distance to all of the main Lancaster attractions, and dining.

We frequent B&B's and this is definitely at the top if our list. We are thinking of returning for their murder mystery weekend for my birthday. What a unique way to celebrate! If you're in Lancaster you MUST stay here, you will not be disappointed.

What a beautiful stay we had! The King's Cottage is just a lovely place to get-away and enjoy the a weekend in a beautiful area. We spent our 10-year anniversary in the carriage house, which was nothing less than exceptionally romantic. We ate our breakfasts from a charming picnic basket which was delivered to our door each morning with food that could only be described as out-of-this-world. Between the food and the room, I thought I'd somehow traveled to France! A picnic lunch and a tour of covered bridges, champagne and chocolate in the room, what more could one ask for? The weekend was perfect. Ann and Janis are exceptionally accomodating and welcoming - perfect hosts. We hope to return again!

I love staying at Kings Cottage. I actually grew up in Lancaster, and when I come home to visit I prefer staying at KC over any hotel in the area. The staff is awesome: attentive, kind, welcoming.

The location couldn't be better. 5 min east and you can shop at the outlets and explore Amish country, 5 min west and can explore downtown Lancaster's up-and-coming "artsy" area. There wasn't much to see downtown when I was a kid, although I heard the stories of a bombing downtown from my parents and grandparents. The Marriott convention center has really helped to revitalize the area, but there is no way I'm paying $250 for a boring room when I can stay at KC and receive excellent service AND breakfast. You can't beat it.

Breakfast always gives me a smile and leaves me longing for a nap :)

If you are visiting Lancaster any time soon, take it from a local and visit KC. You will keep coming back.

It is always a pleasure to welcome back Lancastrians to their home town and see how pleased they are to discover how great downtown Lancaster is with all changes over the years: so many great restaurants and artist studios and galleries and, of course, Central Market has been restored and is thriving as always. We are glad you chose our bed and breakfast for your stay and look forward to seeing you again. Thank you for your review.

Ann and Janis run a great inn. The breakfast was delicious. They gave great advice on ehat to do,
where to go and where to eat. They also seemed to have coupons for everything. They do all the stuff you expect from a high end B&B the thing is that they do those things really really well.

My wife and I stayed in the Carriage House two nights during our honeymoon. I can’t stress how wonderful our visit was. From the moment we opened the doors we felt truly welcomed. Walking in we saw a beautiful card congratulating us on our wedding, a basket of Lancaster gourmet goodies and a plate of delightful chocolates. The room itself was amazing, with the table and chairs where we shared our breakfast (delivered to our door in a charming basket) in front of the fireplace to the 2 person Jacuzzi where we relaxed every evening with a bottle of wine. The breakfasts were plentiful and mouth watering, you will not go away hungry. The bed was more than comfortable and after my wife’s back surgery that is of utmost importance! Ann and Janis are both amazing and knowledgeable innkeepers, every recommendation they made was not only perfect for us but was something they too had experienced themselves. We highly recommend The King’s Cottage for your next getaway!!
