We made a last minute reservation and were lucky to find an amazing experience. The house is inviting and charming, nicely decorated for the season. Breakfast was delicious, all homemade, including juice made from grapes grown on the property. I loved the pumpkin bread, delicious and served hot straight from the oven. I mentioned this to Kathy and she wrapped...

It was a pleasure! Proof, that 'last minute', can work out well. I am so happy you enjoyed your stay in my home. The pumpkin bread is one of my personal favs too. :) Summer hikes and canoeing down the Grant River, await your arrival.

Kathy was very accommodating to my somewhat odd schedule and made everything about my stay quiet and relaxing. A gracious and welcoming hostess all the way around! The room was great all the way around and the breakfast was out of this world. I am visiting the area often and will certainly return!

Maple Harris Guesthouse and especially its owner, Kathy, are really special. We actually had some pressing business in the area and weren't sure what we would find. Well, the house is lovely, super clean, and a variety of different places to stay - we have now stayed in 3 different rooms, including the separate guesthouse, and had great stays at...

Come for the warm welcome from Kathy, stay for the hospitality and amazing breakfast! We stayed in the lower carriage house, it was roomy and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. Kathy served steel-cut oats and red quinoa with a roasted sweet potato and pecan topping. PLUS we had scones with four homemade jams to sample. (The strawberry basil was awesome!). AND...

First the good. Everything! The B&B is an old Queen Anne house with carriage house. It's in pretty good shape but the beauty of this place lies with the owner, Kathy. As soon as you met her you feel like you just arrived home. There is lots of wood trim in this home and it looks marvelous. We stayed in...

Transitioning from a rental home to our new purchased home, we basically were "homeless" on our 20th year anniversary for about 2 weeks...I told my husband that I would love to check on the Maple House B&B since there were no other places available.

Our party included 3 families that had 4 children under 4 coming to Lancaster for a wedding. I was initially skeptical of a bed and breakfast, but I could not have been more wrong.

I experienced the Innkeeper Kathy to be a delightful and positive person who makes delicious homemade breakfast meals and offered a charming, clean place for me to stay.
