Bird In Hand Family Inn: Our Stay in Lancaster County

Our stay was part of a press trip, and we were provided a free night at the Inn, including vouchers for dinner and breakfast. As always, all opinions are my very own. When you say "Lancaster County",  a picturesque Amish setting comes to mind, and that's just what you see when you drive past the main office into the heart of the Bird In Hand Family Inn. They take Family Travel seriously, and have something for everyone.

The Rooms
Our room was a great size for four people. It was clean and equipped with a coffee maker, hair dryer, iron and ironing board. A couple things that bumped it up a notch for me, were the extra hooks on the back of the bathroom door (enough room for 4+ towels) and a heat lamp. The vanity was separate from the toilet and tub, so it was easy for multiple people to be getting ready at the same time. There are 125 rooms, including Family Suites and King Rooms. WiFi is complimentary, and cable television is available in all rooms.

Amenities and Extras
The Inn has three pools, a hot tub and a restaurant on site. If swimming isn't your thing, you can take advantage of the playground, tennis courts, mini golf courses or petting zoo. The Inn itself is situated on 10 acres of picturesque land, and you can even rent a scooter to take it all in. The grounds are beautiful, with rolling hills, green grasses, a pond filled with hungry fish and a pretty gazebo and picnic area.

One of the most well-known features is the Bird-In-Hand Family Restaurant and Smorgasbord. The restaurant features both menu-ordering or an amazing assortment of Lancaster County inspired recipes arranged in an expansive buffet. There is even a separate buffet for the kids, that includes all their favorites. And let's not forget the ice cream bar and homemade desserts!

Disclosure - we were guests of Girls Lunch Out and Bird In Hand Family Inn, as part of a Lancaster Press Trip.  We received one night's stay, as well as vouchers for dinner and breakfast. I was not compensated for this post, and as always, all opinions are my very own.
