The Creekside Inn offers a step back to a simpler time that still exists in Lancaster County today. Our 18th century Georgian limestone home, built in 1781 will welcome you as it did George Washington over 200 years ago.
We are peacefully situated on 2 acres along the Pequea Creek in the village of Paradise, home to the Old Order Amish community for 200 years. You will hear the sound of horse and buggy passing by as you rock on our porch or relax by the creek.
The Creekside Inn is comfortably decorated with antiques and period furniture. The large living room with its original working stone fireplace is an inviting place for guests to gather and socialize. Our guest rooms are appointed with antiques and Amish quilts. All have private in-room baths and two have working fireplaces.
The Inn is centrally located in the heart of Lancaster County and Amish Country, close to all major attractions yet secluded enough to enjoy the countryside at a slower pace.
