The King bed was like a deep feather bed, the big shower washed away our frustrations and the double sanijet tub soaked away our pains. Jan baked us a cookie jar full of raspberry chocolate chip cookies (crispy out and soft in!) and buttery raspberry bars for dessert and stocked the 'fridge with orange juice, milk, butter, ham & eggs and cheddar cheese with english muffins. All this met us at the start of our visit to the Olde Stone Cottage at the Artist's Inn & Gallery. The cottage's lovely colors and setting made a wonderful base for our relaxation motivated vacation in Lancaster. Jan & Bruce are gracious hosts and met our requests & needs quickly & cheerfully. If you are blessed to have a conversation with them you will not "waste" your time! Bruce is a refreshingly contemporary blend of Will Roger's insights (look him up if you don't know who he is) and Gary Larsen's (Far Side) twisted artistic humor. Although in all fairness, Bruce is God's own unique character and one day soon we will compare others to HIS talents. Don't think of leaving without checking out his gallery at the inn! We are seasoned travellers and will keep the Artist's Inn & Gallery on our "return to" list. My only regret in writing this review is that you might make a reservation on a day WE want to be there! God bless these innkeepers & their inn.
