One year we brought my mom to Bird-in-Hand to see a play for her 85th birthday. I happened to mention the occasion when I made the room reservation. When we arrived, there was a basket of goodies with ‘Happy Birthday’ for my mom. It’s little things like that that set the Family Inn apart. I feel like it’s family when we visit there.

In the heart of our village, the Bird-in-Hand Family Inn in Lancaster, PA is built on land that has been in the Smucker family for generations – since 1925, when John E. Smucker bought the farm from his father-in-law. Today, we have 125 rooms and continue to improve on our resort-style country inn for the benefit of our Guests.
With indoor and outdoor swimming pools, tennis and basketball courts, an on-site fitness center and other recreational facilities, our Bird-in-Hand country inn is the perfect place for an active family or group. Think of us like a family resort in Lancaster. We offer unique experiences like Fireside S’mores and free ice cream socials with the Smucker family that help make for a memorable family vacation. You can pull up a lawn chair and watch horse-drawn Amish buggies go by or hot air balloons launch from the field across the road. Plus, our location puts us in the middle of everything you want to see and do in Amish Country. Our hotel in Lancaster County is next to our Restaurant and Smorgasbord, as well as our live theatre. We’re within easy walking distance of our Bakery & Cafe, a farmer’s market, antique shops and a mini-golf course. And if you’re looking for a hotel near Sight & Sound Theatres, Dutch Wonderland, Kitchen Kettle Village, the Strasburg Railroad or the outlets, we’re just a short drive from these popular Lancaster, PA attractions.Welcome From Justin, our Property Manager
