Additional Gratuity at a B&B

by Ephemera

My wife and six-year old recently stayed three days at a B&B in Lancaster County. We tipped 20% gratuity on the two dinner meals we had there and left a $20 tip for housekeeping.

When the transaction posted to my (debit card) account, the amount was exactly 20% more than the final bill I had signed for.

I've never heard of adding gratuity to a final hotel or B&B bill--am I behind the times?

No, you're not. I'd call the place immediately and demand your 20% back. If you didn't approve the charge, that's called stealing. It's too bad you put this on a debit (as opposed to credit) card, because you'd have far more leverage with a credit card charge. As it is, the money's out of your bank account now, and if the B&B gives you trouble you'll have to take it up with the bank somehow. I hope you still have the signed receipt.

If I were you, I'd use the phrases "Better Business Bureau" and "I'll be contacting the Lancaster County Tourist Office" in your discussion with the B&B. These are often persuasive.

That does sound really weird; maybe check their brochure or advertisement (web page, etc.) to see if it says that 20% gratuity will be added at the end of your stay, for some strange reason. The above replies are right; at least with a credit card, the company can do some investigating for you.

You can still dispute the charges with your bank as long as you have the receipt that you signed for. Just with a credit card, banks offer their customers protection in cases such as these. If you do not have your receipt, they may be able to order a copy for you via microfilm. The bank should be able to credit you the difference. It is always best to notify the bank ASAP.

Ephemera,
If there is anything I can do to help, please advise me. This is not typical B & B hospitality and needs to be resolved to your satisfaction. There should be no additional charges to your card that you were unaware of at your time of departure.

Travel Tips for Lancaster

Making redware pottery

by Pawtuxet

Early redware pottery is duplicated in a number of states...and perhaps around the world. In Pennsylvania, the redware pottery which I liked the best was made by a potter named Foltz. His work can be found in several places throughout the Lancaster County. We searched for his studio and found a charming little place hidden away in the country...unfortunately the studio was not open for touring when we got there, but we had a nice chat with Ned Foltz. You can learn about his work at:

Heritage Map Museum in Lititz....

by Easty

Heritage Map Museum in Lititz. This is a great place to view old historical maps. This museum has maps from the 16th and 17th century. This is worth the stop even for non-map fans.

Located at 49 N. Broad Street in Lititz. From Lancaster, take PA Route 501 North for 12 miles to the center of Lititz.

WHEATLAND

by mtncorg

This was ‘home’ for James Buchanan, the 15th President of the U.S. and the only Pennsylvanian to ever hold that office. The home dates to 1828 and originally the property covered some 22.45 acres - only 4.25 acres presently remain with the house. Buchanan’s niece, Harriet Lane Johnston, who served as Old Buck’s de facto First Lady - Buchanan was a lifelong bachelor - inherited the home after his death in 1868, using it as a summer residence to escape from Baltimore. Eventually, the residence, after two subsequent owners, was purchased by the James Buchanan Foundation for the Preservation of Wheatland and it is this foundation which owns and has restored the home to the period of 1848-1868 - the time in which the home was owned by Buchanan. The mansion, privy, smokehouse/icehouse date from 1828 while the carriage house was built after Buchanan’s residence. From the rooms inside Wheatland, Old Buck ran his successful 1856 campaign for the Presidency and it was here to which he retired in 1861 after his single term. Being a very successful politician, Buchanan’s ability to change his political stance is reflected in his home’s design with a formal side - the north - for Southern guests and a more informal side - for Northern guests. You tour through the home with very informative guides who are dressed up in period costume.

Intercourse Country Store

by Pawtuxet

Intercourse is a bustling community filled with lovely buildings, good signage, lots of traffic, and parking lots.....tourists buzzing about and many, many stores with soulvenirs. Guess everyone has to go just to say they went...such a fascination with the name. The Country Store is one of the better rated stops to make. We made a speedy pass through a couple of shops and headed back to the farmlands.

Style of Barns

by keeweechic

The barn is one of the most important building on the Amish farmer's property. Not only is it used for storing crops but it may also be used as a meeting place for all his neighbours. The condition of the barn is kept in pristine condition, even better than the house at times.
