B.F. Hiestand House Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 6 Marietta B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
GreenLeadersSilver level
Reviewed 31 December 2006

My husband & I just returned from a 2 night stay at this charming B&B. I planned a surprise get-away for my husband as part of his Christmas gift. I focused our trip to Lancaster, and wanted a place that was not too busy, but centrally located. I did a lot of research on the internet - looking at reviews / information from several websites, and came across B.F. Heistand House B&B. We had never been in Marietta, and since we would be spending time in Ronks and Hershey, Marietta seemed to be a good central point from both towns (30 minutes away). The home is lovely - built over 120 years ago, and they have pictures of the Heistand family members hanging on hallway walls. We stayed in two rooms, the Victoria Room the first night and the Vanderslice Suite the second night. Both cozy with detailed furnishings and very comfortable beds. The breakfasts were delicious (the french toast souffle was really good). The innkeepers (Pam & Dallas) are truly accomodating and pleasant. They shared information on the history of the house, offered suggestions on places to eat and other places to visit, offered to make reservations or check on business hours to places before we headed out. We ate at one local pub (McCleary's) which was a good mile walk from the house (we like to walk). We were able to see the neighborhood, and enjoy some local fare. There are several restaurants that are close by and highly recommended (Josephine's, The Railroad House, The Loft). Overall, I would definitely recommend B.F. Heistand House. We truly enjoyed our stay and would go back again.

Pam & Dallas Fritz, who own B.F. Heistand House, are terrific B&B owners. My husband and I stayed there last year and had such a great time we decided to visit another B&B this year. I'll write about that one later.
Anyway, the rooms were very clean and cozy. The victorian style home had antiques and lovely touches everywhere. Embroidered bathrobes were just one of the many amenities offered here. In our suite, we could veg and read books, watch a movie, watch TV or just revel in the fact that we were well taken care of.
Pam's breakfast and especially the made from scratch muffins were incredibly good. I asked for the recipe and she was happy to oblige. She and Dallas provided memories of the warm, sweet, happy nature. We would definitely recommend B.F. Heistand House, right in the heart of Amish horse and buggy living!

We have stayed MANY times at Heistand House, just recently a few weeks ago. We LOVE staying there!! The Inn Keepers, Pam and Dallas, make you feel VERY welcome, the rooms are very nice, we stay in the Vanderslice Suite which is quite lovely, spacious and has a very comfortable King bed!!. Pam ALWAYS makes a SUPERB Breakfast, you definitely WON'T go hungry!!! And there are goodies in the evening too!
Marietta is not to far from Lancaster, so you are close to all the stuff going on there. And Marietta and the surrounding towns are interesting too.
B.F. Heistand House is DEFINITELY worth trying when you are in the Lancaster area!!
