“The most wonderful place we have ever stayed!”
Reviewed 11 October 2011

I wish I could convey in words how very much we enjoyed our stay at the King's Cottage. We have been blessed enough to stay in many high-end resorts. This by far has become our favorite. We felt so "wanted". The privacy was perfect, yet we felt like we had friends next door that could recommend where to eat, visit, and even find a particular shopping item on our Lancaster list! We are both gluten free eaters, and we were served gluten free breakfast on our porch in a picnic basket each morning - even gluten free french toast, which was by far the best french toast (gluten or gluten free) that we have ever eaten! We stayed at the carriage house, and it was totally worth the splurge. Yet, we could tell that every room in the inn was just as perfect. Everything was elegant yet casual, thoughtful and clean yet comfortable. Every element is perfectly handled by Ann and Janis. We will not just stay with them the next time we go to Lancaster, we will make room in our schedule because of them to go to Lancaster! Just superb......

We recently stayed at Kings Cottage and were very pleased that we did. From the genuine welcome to the “checking out” conversation Ann and Janis could not have done more to make our visit enjoyable. They were always on hand with relevant information (but never intrusive) and went out of their way to check anything they didn’t know for sure, they even called ahead so that we were able to eat and visit places when we wanted to without joining a queue. The B&B itself is extremely comfortable, very clean and very well maintained, it has everything you could possibly want. It is exactly as detailed in their website. The breakfasts provided are large, varied and delicious and set you up for the day exploring an interesting area. There are lots of positive words that I could use to describe the B&B but the least appropriate would be “shabby”, I was shocked to see that in a review below and cannot see how someone could hold that opinion of King’s Cottage.

We really enjoyed this place, for its colonial style, for its cleanness and good taste. We loved the owners; they were really friendly, attentive, and sensitive to our needs..... and their cooking was great! Overall, a lovable experience for anyone seeking intimacy, quietness in an extremely pleasant setting.

Room Tip: Some of rooms (for example Contessa room) have separate entrance from the main house. This might be...

My husband and I have stayed at B & B's before -- in USA, UK and Canada, but this was the best so far! Ann & Janis (and Samson) made us feel right at home the moment we walked in the door. The room was beautiful, afternoon snacks were wonderful, breakfast was superb and elegantly served. At our request, we were shown the other rooms not being used, and they all looked fabulous. We loved playing the piano and guitar, coffee/tea available round the clock and the freedom to take our lovely mugs filled with our favorite brew to our room at all hours to enjoy. When we left, they gave us raspberry tea (which I loved) for the road. We would definately encourage anyone to stay at this lovely B & B!!!

My husband and I spent a couple of nights at King's Cottage to celebrate our anniversary. We've stayed at lots of B&B's and this was among the best we've seen. Anne and Janis were knowledgable about restaurants, destinations and directions; they were friendly and gracious. They went out of their way to accomodate our special dietary needs. Breakfast was lovely and chatting with the other guests quite enjoyable. The house, built in 1913, is beautiful and our room was very comfortable. I would not hesitate to recommend King's Cottage to others looking for a few days away to rest and relax.
