Two Thunbs Up!

Posted Aug 8, 2014
Patricia and Ronald Ernst (the innkeepers and owners) provide their guests with a wonderful experience at this almost 250 year old home. It is next to a former grist mill (private residence) that created cannon balls during the War of 1812. Also, as many of their neighbors are Amish it is not uncommon to see Amish families pass the property in their carriages. The innkeepers have forged close relationships with many of their Amish neighbors and expanded our understanding of their lifestyle as well as dispelled misconceptions about the Amish. The inn provides clean bedrooms with excellent air conditioning, seating and comfortable beds. Also, each room has a bathroom specifically for its occupants. In addition, the first floor has three common rooms open to all guests: the living room, family room and dining room. All of the rooms have beautiful furniture and are decorated in a manner that reflect Patricia's and Ronald's tastes. In the morning, Ronald and Patricia both create a culinary experience for their guests in the dining room. Breakfast included warm scones, an "egg sandwich" with a whole tomato instead of bread to encapsulate the sandwich, and a slice of pie. The entire meal was made from scratch. And finally, there are several beautiful cats on the property. If you are looking to break away from the chain hotel experience and relax, this is the place to go while in Lancaster.

A touch of history

Posted May 27, 2014
Pros: Loved that it was so quiet in the area. The bed was very comfortable.
Cons: Nothing. If improved, it would take away the charm of the place.
Location: "Site and Sound" theater is great. Dieners Diner..buffet is wonderful Amish buffet. Take a walk down the country roads and see how the Amish live.
It is an old house built in 1766, so you can not expect level floors or everything like you have it today....but that is the beauty of it. It is so quiet. Wonderful night sleep. Great hosts, and a wonderful breakfast. Getting to know the area as explained by our host, and getting to know others at breakfast was great. Love being in Amish country.

The whole environment is conducive to having a relaxing stay. The owners could not be more friendly or knowledgeable about the local area. The bed rooms were all of good size and easy to be in. Breakfast was a real treat. Would stay there again and would recommend it to you unreservedly.

This historic house was an interesting overnight stay, BUT my room was too cold. The breakfast was well prepared, but way too sugary.On top of delicious strawberry yogurt, we had banana stuffed french toast,and syrup, then apple pie for dessert! I would have liked more savory selections. The area is farmland and very beautiful, but rather difficult to navigate by car due to its remoteness. The innkeepers were very welcoming, but left the guests to no private conversation at breakfast. They ould do better with wifi connection, food selection, and temperature control. However, the rooms are very comfortable and the bathrooms spacious and well appointed.

Pros: The intimacy and family style breakfast
The Osceola Mill House was a very nice property. They provided a great breakfast and even dessert after breakfast. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff was very welcoming and made you feel at home.

Lovely B&B amid farmland in Amish Countryside

Posted Nov 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
We enjoyed a two day stay at Osceola Mill House in eastern Lancaster County, Pa. The house was lovely and very comfortable, providing a quiet place to get away. Surrounded by Amish farms, we enjoyed hearing the sound of horse drawn buggies in the morning. Ron and Pat, the innkeepers, were warm and welcoming with great breakfasts that kept you going all day. A great place to recharge your batteries.
