“We drive for almost 10 hours to get here. We’re not going to take that long a ride and not get our money’s worth. The country itself and the Village Inn & Suites – you can’t beat it. The staff are extraordinary people. They’re friendly and eager to make your stay worthwhile. We’ve traveled a lot. You’ll never have anybody else come out from behind the desk and hug you when you leave. ”

Experience Old-World Hospitality
Shed the stresses of today’s world and step back in time. Our 18th Century Inn is listed in both the Lancaster County Register of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic Places. What used to be an 11-room Lancaster County bed and breakfast built in 1852 has been expanded to a 24-room Amish Country inn. Each of the meticulously-decorated rooms and suites are tastefully decorated with period furnishings and modern amenities, and are located in four carefully-preserved historic buildings in the quaint village of Bird-in-Hand, PA. They provide the perfect retreat for relaxation in comfort and privacy, while putting you within walking distance of our popular Restaurant & Smorgasbord and our Bakery & Cafe, as well as a local farmer’s market, antique gallery, old-fashioned country store, hot air balloon rides and more. Treat yourself to our wine-tasting package. And our innkeeper is always glad to make suggestions to help you get the most from your stay.
Guests often gather on the sun porch for relaxed reading and conversation while overlooking the rolling farmland. Opposite the original Inn, across Old Philadelphia Pike, are three 19th-century buildings that were restored and renovated in 2003. Featuring three suites, the Desmond House combines Victorian charm with 21st-century comfort and conveniences. The Ressler House offers six rooms and suites and a breakfast room where our Guests can enjoy a deluxe continental breakfast and evening snacks. Behind them, adjacent to Amish farmlands, the Carriage House offers four two-room suites with kitchenettes, making it your perfect choice for an extended stay.
Because we have just 24 rooms and suites, we can offer a level of service and attention to detail that you will rarely find anywhere else. Whether you are planning a weekend getaway or a longer stay, celebrating an anniversary, organizing a girlfriends’ retreat or simply looking for a romantic bed and breakfast near Lancaster, PA, we can help you select the ideal room or suite for your visit to Amish Country.
