Specials & Packages
If you see a lower rate on any on-line booking site (Expedia; Hotels dot com; Priceline; or anywhere else) than what we have posted here, CALL US at 717-768-3059. While those sites provide us great advertising exposure, their rates (after admin fees, etc.) are often higher than what we offer when you book directly with us. Not only that, but they take a pretty hefty commission, which is not so great for a small businesses like ours. You will always get the best rate by booking direct.
Discounts must be requested and Promo Codes used at the time of booking in order to apply. Special offers cannot be combined with each other or any other discount.
WINTER SPECIAL – During the months of January, February and March – all of our rooms have been discounted. There is some fine print: 1) holidays weekends are excluded; and 2) you must book direct. You don’t need to do anything special – just go ahead and book your room.
LANCASTER QUILT WEEK – We’d like you to be able to take advantage of Lancaster Quilt Week to the fullest. So, to help make that happen we are offering a quilt week special on stays of 5 nights over Quilt Week. Book 5 nights checking in on Tuesday, March 20 and checking out on Sunday, March 25, 2018. We will offer an early breakfast to allow you time to get to your first class on time and not have to purchase food. There will be fresh cookies on your return to the Bed and Breakfast daily, and if you are interested – we’re more than happy to make a desk or table available to let you sew into the evening when you come back inspired! Call to make your Quilt Week Reservation and get 20% off our already discounted Winter Rates. We hope to see you for Quilt Week!
YOU ARE HERE DISCOUNT – Being a Seattle Girl at Heart, I have a huge fondness for Starbucks coffee. I know many of you don’t like it – and don’t worry, we are serving up a local coffee in the B&B. However, for a little bit of Starbucks nostalgia to warm my heart, we have started a collection of Starbucks You Are Here Mugs for our snack station. So, from now until we enough mugs, if you bring us a Starbucks You Are Here Mug that we don’t already have (call first – I don’t want 20 New Jersey mugs!) we’ll give you $20 off a minimum 2 night stay. There are some restrictions to this promotion and unfortunately only the first to bring me New York, New Jersey, etc. will get the discount, so give me a call to see if your mug is still available for the discount. The collection is growing – we now have the following YOU ARE HERE mugs: Singapore, Kuta, Playa del Carmen, Seattle, Toronto, New York, Twin Cities, New Jersey, North Carolina, Kansas City, Charlotte and Paris. We now have the following BEEN THERE mugs: New Hampshire; New York; and Philadelphia. This list is inclusive – if you don’t see your city/state here that’s because we don’t have it yet.
RETURN GUESTS – Because we love our guests, we are implementing a frequent guest program. After staying 10 nights with us (don’t worry, we’ll keep track and there is no deadline to earn those nights by. You can take 10 months or 10 years to get there!), a gift certificate for one night’s stay will be left on your pillow when your room is tidied. Sadly, the gift certificate is for you and you only, you can bring a guest, you just can’t give the gift certificate to anyone else, we hope you understand.
REFERRAL PROGRAM – Refer a friend who has never stayed with us and they will get a 10% discount at check-in on a minimum two-night stay. Some restrictions apply: must be a minimum 2 night stay; may not be combined with other discounts; and this offer may be cancelled at any time.
Lancaster Brewing Package – Add a Lancaster Brewing Company package to your stay. The Tap Room is 15 minutes away. They offer a great menu paired with excellent service. Your LBC Gift Package will be waiting in your room upon check in and includes a $30 gift card; 2 LBC pint glasses; 4-pack of LBC beer; and a coupon good for $5 off any LBC merchandise. Add this package to your stay for only $54.95.
Taste of Lancaster Gift Basket – Waiting for you upon arrival will be a basket filled with assorted Lancaster Specific Treats. Your items may include: coffee from Lancaster Coffee Roasters; flavored olive oil and balsamic from The Olive Basin; jams, jellys, or beets from The Canning Kitchen at Kitchen Kettle.
