The B&B is in close proximity to all of Lancaster County's visitor attractions and central to a variety of eateries that serve heaping portions of home cooked, locally raised foods. Four star gourmet cuisine is also waiting for you here as well as outdoor/adventure activities such as bicycling, kayaking, and golf. The sister villages of Strasburg and Bird-in-Hand are nearby, and the historic towns of Lititz, Ephrata, Lancaster City and Hershey are a 20-40 minutes drive. VIEW INFORMATION ABOUT INTERCOURSE, PA.
One of our guests described our location as being …. “right in the middle of Amish country with carriages rolling by, Amish boys on scooters, and girls in bonnets playing games.”
Just a 10 minute stroll into the Village is a hustling center from yesteryear with Amish buggies converging. Intercourse offers a myriad of local craft, quilt, tin and furniture shops, our own pretzel factory, as well as antique and art galleries with both new and old treasurers. The Old Country Store has a free Quilt Museum, the Amish Experience Theater (Jacob's Choice) a creative presentation of the difficult decision Amish youth face-to join the faith or live in the outside world. “Who are the Amish” at The Mennonite Information Center provides a documentary presentation of local history and culture. Kitchen Kettle Village is a charming grouping a 39 shops within the Village and is built around a jam and jelly kitchen. Kitchen Kettle hosts special festivals throughout the year for all to enjoy.
Gordon brings his love of people, enjoyment of cooking and zest for adventure to the B&B from his years in ministry as a youth and singles pastor. Gwen has a nursing background and works outside of the home as a Health Care Administrator; her attention to detail and enjoyment in decorating have helped to create an Inn that includes many treasures we've found over the years. We enjoy stylishness without formality. We appreciate comfort without stiffness. We delight in a kind and cordial atmosphere. And we dislike frou-frou.
At check-in your Innkeeper will provide a "Map and Visitors Guide" and will offer to acclimate each guest to the land of the Pennsylvania Dutch and the world of the “plain” folk as well as the Village of Intercourse, which some claim is the center of the universe…(you'll see that our B&B is just on the edge of the Village and so …… so we're slightly off center!)
You may order a Map and Visitor's Guide ahead of your visit from the Tourist Bureau (1-800-PA DUTCH) and we recommend making reservations ahead of time for special occasions at fine dining restaurants (especially on holiday weekends…we would be glad to assist you with that). Tickets for Sight and Sound's Millennium Theater, The American Music Theatre are best purchased in advance as well. If you desire to have dinner in an Amish home, we will kindly arrange that prior to your arrival if there happens to be an Amish family serving.
