My girlfiend and I are psychiatric nurses who lead very stressful lives at work. We decided to take a couple days away from our lives' hectic schedules "to recharge our batteries"! The Artist's Inn and Gallery was a wonderful experience for us! The Garden Room was beautifully decorated with incredibly artisticly painted walls and an appropriate saying over the jacuzzi tub in the adjoining room. It doesn't get any better than this, to relax in a bubbling tub full of hot water, prior to collapsing in a king size bed, that has the silkiest sheets to fall into at night. There is also an adjoining porch that can comfortably seat 2-4 folks with a beautiful view of the countryside as you listen to the clip-clopping of the Amish buggies going by. In addition, there is another small room right outside your door, that one has access to a small refrigerator and a Kuerig machine with coffee and condiments provided. In the room across the hall, one is provided with books, games, a couch and a small basket of cheese crackers and candies. However, the "icing on the cake" is the multi-course breakfast served at 8:30 a.m., "to die for". We just wished we had bigger appetites. Jan and Bruce are very hospitable and we hope to be able to return again someday, when our schedules permit.

Room Tip: The garden room was very quiet and peaceful! All of the rooms are immaculate and beautiful. One draw...

Audrey - Thanks so much for writing. It was such a pleasure to meet you and Janet - I can see why you've been friends for many years. We're so glad you enjoyed the Garden Suite, even if the room that houses the toilet is a little small. It's the best we could do with the space we have. I did want to claify that the Rose Room does have a Jacuzzi tub - it's not a tub for two though, just one person, with a shower overhead as well. We hope to see you again!

Jan the innkeeper is very nice and very accommodating. She made breakfast early for some of the guest so we could get on with our day. There are three rooms at the Inn itself. We stayed in the one without a hot tub/jacuzzi. It was great. We thought the street noise would bother us since we are "country folks" but it did not.

Everything was clean and well kept.

Jan is a great cook and it shows that she likes to cook.

Being in Amish country is a big plus if you are not used to that.

Room Tip: The larger room at the back of the house is away from the street noise and has the best veiw (from t...

We spent an incredibly relaxing few days at The Stone Cottage which is owned and run by Jan and Bruce of The Artist's Inn. We arrived to find this charming, totally renovated two bedroom cottage with sunny living room, dining room and beautifully decorated quaint kitchen whose refrigerator was filled with more than enough goodies for all our breakfasts...fresh eggs, bread, a small local smoked ham (yum) AND a large plate of home baked chocolate chip scones, complete with a personal welcome note from Jan and Bruce! Looking on the counter, a huge cookie jar filled with Jan's cookies...off to the Living Room, a candy dish full of my favorites. I think I'm liking this just fine! Open a door off the LR and step onto a lovely covered porch with wicker furniture. When the weather permitted, we sipped our coffee there in the AM and something a bit stronger in the PM listening to and watching the peaceful, beautiful Amish buggies go by! The bed is comfy and the jacuzzi a treat. A friend joined us overnight which was fine, even though there is only one bath. This cottage offers you the best of both worlds with the ultimate in privacy and also Jan's cheery voice on the phone whenever you need anything. (Bruce gave us a great lead...AND coupon...to a nearby restaurant .). We love Lancaster County, were busy, shopped, saw a spectacular show at Sight and Sound AND had the Cottage to come back to and Enjoy! Can't wait to go again. You will not be disappointed!

With my family (my wife, 2 boys + 1 girl and me) I have been for 2 days (only, unfortunately) in this terrific place. Being Italian, we use to stay in B&B in Tuscany, in South Italy or in the South France but sincerely we never found a paradise's corner like this. The location is excellent to visit the peaceful and lovely Lancaster County, the house is a jewel full of pretty things, the rooms are very nice as well as quite large, but the most important reason to come here (again, for us) are the owners. Jane and Bruce are really good persons, quite friendly. You immediately understand that they love what they do. Finally : Jane's breakfast is really a masterpiece of quality and quantity.

I can't recommend this inn highly enough. I will try to break everything down..

Location-Yes, its a little off the beaten path, but thats why I visited Lancaster County. Not only to vacation, but to view the beautiful countryside. This place does just that. Every night my husband and I sat out on the side porch and had a great view of the farms behind town. Another reason not to mind the location is a lot of the attractions in Lancaster County are spread out, so you will probably have to do some traveling to each location anyway. It was beautiful!

The inn-The inn is very beautiful! We stayed in the rose suite. The roses painted on the wall were very pretty. We also enjoyed the sitting room that the room had. The bed was comfortable (king size) and I slept like a baby. Each night the bed is turned down for you after you come back from a day away and there are homemade chocolates waiting for you on the bed. It was a delicious treat after a long fun filled day in the area. There is a sitting room downstairs which is filled with Bruces art. Be sure to check it out. We couldn't help, but purchasing a few before we left. We loved it!

The Innkeepers-They were very nice and friendly. We were supposed to arrive by 7 according to the check in times, but were stuck in horrendous traffic around the D.C. and Baltimore area. Bruce understood and was very accomadating. He even asked us to get dinner on the way since things closed early there instead of asking us to check in there first. We had the romance basket placed in our room and the gifts in it were lovely-especially the godiva chocolate. They made sure at breakfast time we were taken care of..speaking of breakfast...

Breakfast-Besides the innkeepers one of the BEST things about this place is the breakfast. Everything was delicious! You get four courses served to you by candlelight. To give you an idea of what kind of breakast you may get. The first day we had: Cinnamon Biscuits with apple butter, cantelope with a blueberry banana sauce, sage sausage, three cheese crustless egg quiche, roasted tomatoes, and brownies. The second day we had: Pumpkin Spice Bread with pumpkin butter, blueberries and strawberries w/cream, smoked ham, sweet potato home fries, lemon poppyseed waffles w/ maple syrup. and chocolate chip zuchinni bread. Third day we had: Coconut muffins, fresh watermelon, hot cinnamon apples, bacon, and some sort bread, egg, cheese, pepper, onion, corn casserole. along with lemon bars. Every single thing was superb.

I HIGHLY recomend this place and we will be back the next time we stay in Lancaster County.

Room Tip: The garden suite has its own balcony and faces the rear, but ALL the rooms are beautiful!

Vicki - Thanks so much for posting your reivew AND pictures! I'm especially happy to receive yours because I was not able to be here for two of your breakfasts. Looks like Bruce did a good job while I was gone! After 15 years in the business, we still try to keep breakfasts interesting and fun. Just like our guests!

We spent a girls weekend at The Artist Inn B&B and had a wonderful time. We had the Garden Suite and the Rose Room, plenty of space to lounge and play games. Our breakfasts' were not only eye appealing but also delicious ... as evidenced by the pictures I put on facebook. We also enjoyed a wine and cheese tasting tour which ended with a wonderful dinner at Lily's on Main. Jan was a wonderful tour guide and fit in with our group. We also enjoyed all of Bruce's wonderful art work ... a purchased one of his books "Cattle Drive" so I could share with everyone else.
