If you have plans to visit Lancaster, chances are you’re seeking respite from the daily grind. The area itself is a great way to transport yourself to simpler times and immerse yourself in the peacefulness that exists there. Even when you’re visiting for completely different reasons like we were, you can’t help but feel a calmness come over you with the beautiful scenery that abounds. We found that kind of peace at the Country Living Inn of Lancaster.
We were in town for Dutch Wonderland and Day Out with Thomas. Both crazy, fun-filled days. Even the kids were eager to get back to our room at the Country Living Inn. Despite having 34 rooms in the building, we felt as though we were the only people there because it was so completely quiet. This is what I love about private inns!
There are several room types available, depending on configuration and amenities. We stayed in the standard room number 24 which offered two queen beds and a private bathroom. The room was very clean and everything looked brand new. It was nicely decorated in what else but country living style.
If you’re looking for a place with a pool and tennis courts, this is not the right place for you. But if you’re looking to return to a quiet, comfortable place after a long day, this is it. Yes of course the kids love a pool, but when I know we won’t have the time to use it, it’s a waste of money. There was a lovely patio at the back with adirondack chairs, and I feel bad we didn’t get to enjoy that!
This is an inn, not a bed and breakfast. Coffee, tea and hot cocoa are offered in the lobby each morning, with muffins on Sundays. The owners have a lovely 50’s restaurant on property called DJ’s Taste of the 50s. We ate there for dinner on Friday night, and breakfast on Saturday morning. We definitely preferred lunch there, but expect a la carte pricing. The kids loved the fun props, authentic 50’s decor and the fact that their meals came in classic cardboard cars. The staff went out of their way to make the kids happy, including complimentary balloons before we left.
Rates here start at $59 per night. I don’t know many places that I’d be comfortable staying in at that price, butI’d gladly stay here again the next time we visit Lancaster. It’ll feel like coming home.
We received complimentary lodging for consideration.
