Experience Old-World Hospitality

Shed the stresses of today’s world and step back in time to the Bird-in-Hand Village Inn & Suites. What used to be an 11-room Lancaster County bed and breakfast has been expanded to a 24-room Amish Country inn. Each of the meticulously decorated rooms and suites is tastefully appointed with period furnishings and modern amenities, and are located in four carefully preserved historic buildings in the quaint village of Bird-in-Hand. They provide the perfect retreat for relaxation in comfort and privacy – and put you within walking distance of our popular Bird-in-Hand Family Restaurant & Smorgasbord and our Bird-in-Hand Bakery & Cafe, as well as a local farmer’s market, an antique gallery, an old-fashioned country store and more. Treat yourself to our wine-tasting package or, for an authentic Lancaster County experience, ask about our Farm-to-Fork and Harvest tours. And our innkeeper is always glad to make suggestions to help you get the most from your stay.

Our 18th Century Inn is listed in both the Lancaster County Register of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic Places. The current boutique hotel was built in 1852 after the original inn was largely destroyed by fire. It features 11 well-appointed rooms and suites, and our Guests often gather on the sun porch for relaxed reading and conversation. Opposite the original Inn, across Old Philadelphia Pike, are three 19th-century buildings 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 get-away or a longer stay, organizing a girlfriends’ retreat, looking for a romantic inn near Lancaster, PA or celebrating an anniversary or other special occasion, we can help you select the ideal room or suite for your visit to Amish Country.

“It’s nice that the Smucker family can offer the Village Inn & Suites, the Family Inn, Amish Country and Travelers Rest. Each one offers something different. Amish Country has a pool. Travelers Rest has the continental breakfast. We go to the Family Restaurant and we stop into the Bakery & Cafe two or three times a week when we visit Bird-in-Hand. It’s nice that they can provide a stage show right on the Bird-in-Hand campus.”
