I have traveled a lot but this is my first TripAdvisor review--we had such a wonderful and special experience at the Artist's Inn that I felt compelled to write. My husband, 9 year old daughter, and I stayed for 4 nights in the spacious and charming Garden Suite (thanks for making an exception on the age limit for children!). We...

ArtistInn, Owner at Artist's Inn and Gallery, responded to this review

Elizabeth - it was so much fun to host your family. We love when guests experience a B&B for the first time and are honored that you chose The Artist's Inn. Conversations around the breakfast table are always interesting - and Emma made them fun. We'd love to see Emma at 16 - the boys had better look out!

We so enjoyed the Garden Suite with such luxurious bedding, chocolates on the pillow and a really generously stuffed "Lover's Basket." We loved sitting on our own outside deck with coffee. I'll repeat what everyone says, Breakfast is to die for!! Cookies in the cookie jar, snacks in the fridge, helpful recommendations for site-seeing and restaurants. Bruce's art is not...

This cottage is beautiful! The antique furnishings are tasteful and practical and comfortable. The jacuzzi and a hi-tech shower are welcome non-antiques. The outdoor garden adds to a very welcoming ambiance.

Peggy - Thanks for your comments about the cottage. It was really fun to decorate, mixing antique finds from nearby Adamstown and new Waverly fabrics. There's a great outlet nearby called the Interior Alternative - they carry some wonderful decorator fabric.

Ted and Lois - We enjoyed your visit very much and were happy to share The Lancaster Bicycle Club's book of rides with you. The ice cream ride is well worth it!! We hope you visit again - you brought us a wonderful week of cool nights, clear skies and warm days - much appreciated in the middle of August!

It was a wonderful getaway from the city. We spent 2 days in the Old Stone Cottage. Thank you Jan and Bruce for such a welcoming and beautiful country house. We enjoyed our barbecue on the backyard. Kids had a great time and already asking when are we coming back to the house. We all had a really great time!

Jeannie - We're so happy that you had sister time here....and hope you can visit in the fall. It's a really special time - filled with pumpkins, mums, leaves of all colors, and some of my favorite flavors to cook with - squash and pumpkin!. I promise not to repeat any breakfast that you had in the summer.

Thanks for your kind words. It can often be overwhelming trying to decide what to do when you have limited time. And there is SO much to do in Lancaster County. I think my best advice is to drive the back roads and just stop at what interests you. It is a guaranteed stress reducer no matter what season.

We cannot say enough about the cottage. It is beautiful, well-decorated, very well kept and clean.
