More about Greystone Manor
Plastic covered mattress and pillows
My husband and I stayed in a bed-n-breakfast in upstate N.Y. and were looking forward to the same experience while visiting Amish Country, however that was not our experience. In contrast to our previous experience, the owner was not very warm and inviting. We had booked and paid for a two night stay and left early a.m. after our first night. We were unable to sleep because of the light shining into the room from outside and the plastic covering on the bed along with some type of plastic/vinyl pillows. With every slight movement there was a crackling noise. Not at all like "home". The room was very hot. The inn keepers did adjust the air conditioning after we called (on our cell phone, no phone in the room). We were invited to swim in the pool at our leisure but the pool water was cloudy (sign of bacteria), so we passed. The room had no dresser or table to place our belongings. We used the windowsills. We were extremely disappointed. I would not stay there again or recommend the place to anyone. There are many other places to stay in the area.
We enjoyed our 4 nights at this Victorian manor house which is quite a beauty from the architecture inside & out, especially the stain glass windows. We loved our Rm 2 king size poster bed, sitting room, spacious bathroom & large closets There were plenty of dresser drawers. We had family in Rm 1 & 3. They were very happy & comfortable with their very clean rooms too. All these rms were tastefully furnished in authentic looking decor. The grounds were impeccably landscaped with colorful gardens. We made use of pool & hot tub. Breakfasts always included hot dishes, fresh fruit, cereals, many beverage choices & locally made jams & preserves. The family innkeepers were the nicest, always available and offering friendly advice for sightseing. We loved the restaurants recommended. The Manor is centrally located in Lancaster so there is lots to do, see & shop.Quite relaxing. We look foward to returning someday.
We were unable to stay at another local B and B due to unforeseen circumstances and got the last room left in the house. It was on the third floor and probably not what we would have normally chosen for ourselves and our toddler, but things worked out wonderfully! The innkeepers were responsive and helpful...the location was central...we will definitely return!
Stay Away from this "B&B"
Upon arrival I was delighted to find a beautiful house with very nice landscaping and easy parking, but that is where the delight stopped. We found the innkeepers not very personable and twice witnessed rudeness by the innkeepers to other guests. Our room was somewhat clean, but not charming and smelled of bleach. We also lacked some basic saftey features you take for granted at hotels, such as a chain or deadlock for the door, a phone in the room, etc. The matress was cheap, the breakfast was burned, I could go on and on. Save your money and go someplace else.
Just What I Wanted
We wanted a nice, clean place to put our heads. We knew we wouldn't be in the room much so didn't need a lot. It was very clean, very nice and friendly. The rooms have a wide range of prices and we chose the cheapest. Our room was small with a great bathroom. Good breakfast. Pleasant surroundings and people. Next time we will upgrade because we now know it will be even better.
Felt at Home!!!
We went to Greystone Manor in early March 2007. From the time we walked through their doors, we felt at home. I think we even left our door unlocked a few times. Angela and Ward were great hosts, they informed us of many places to see, many attractions and even recommended restaurants to eat at. We felt so at home that in the evening, having received wine glasses from our hosts, we sat on the lounge with our friends who came with us. We were so comfortable that we sat there with no shoes, just like at home. The Rooms were more than anticipated, and the food was top hotch. THANK YOU Angela and Ward!!!!
Good place !
We had a good time in the Greystone Manor. The man of the house was very nice to us even if we arrived late and woke him up at 11 pm... and the room was very nice, well decorated and comfortable.
We recommend the manor to anyone who wants a getaway in a very peaceful area.
We love Greystone
We stayed at Greystone manor April 20 - 21, then returned the next weekend and stayed April 27 - 28. The rooms are immaculate and nicely decorated. Breakfast is very nice with a plentiful buffet.
We prefer to stay in the Manor, although the cottage rooms are very convenient to to your car. I think cottage rooms are probably quieter only because we had some idiot leave his TV on all night. Also, wish they had easy access to an ice machine so as not to bother Wade and Angie.
This was our second stay and we plan to stay again in September.
Looks are deceiving
We have stayed in several B&B's through the years. After staying here, I wouldn't recommend it. The old brick home was well restored, and the landscaping was lovely, but the charm stopped there. When you stay at a B&B, you expect fluffy towels, charming rooms, antiques, and a wonderful breakfast. We stayed out back in the "add on rooms". Cheap, cheap, cheap (except for the price). Cheap towels, plastic covered pillows, cheap mattress, room was hot, and a light shined through the plastic blinds. I asked the owner if the AC was working and he said that they turned up the thermostat during the day. The breakfast wasn't any different than you would find in your average economy motel's "free breakfast".
I didn't see any photos of the "rooms out back" in the advertisements. Yes, the room was clean, and it is centrally located in the Amish area, but so are a lot of other places.
Thomas the Train weekend
We had a wonderful experience at Greystone Manor. The privacy of having a pool to yourself, far outways the local Holiday Inn. The owners went out of their way to accommodate us and our son who's 3 enjoyed playing with their well behaved daughter. Also had a movie night outdoors which I thought was a great idea. We will surely see them again.
