“I do a girls’ weekend at the Bird-in-Hand Family Inn every October. In the fall, when they have the firepit going, there is crispness and peace in the air. Walking over to the restaurant feels like you’re going home for dinner. If only I could move into one of those rooms…. When they started renovating them, I was hoping they were selling timeshares. I’d be here every weekend. It’s the best kept secret in Lancaster County.”
— Barb Russell, Midland Park, NJ
