“We come once a year and stay at the Village Inn & Suites for six or seven days, planning around July 4, because we like to go to the big Amish auction. We bought a little table hutch there one time, and my wife’s bought some handmade towels. We enjoy participating in the auction and we enjoy the food. We stay all day. We like just driving back in the country, and we have some antique stores we like to visit. I’m a milk bottle collector, and I actually found one of my best milk bottles at a yard sale here. We always find something that we haven’t seen before.”

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 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.
