Inn at Westwynd Farm - Hummelstown, PA

"My first time in a B&B was a wonderful experience. We chose this B&B based on the many positive reviews, but the main selling point for us was the barn with lots of horses. Frank and Carolyn the innkeepers made us feel welcome and attended to all of our needs. Breakfasts were delicious and always a surprise! Our room was very clean, including the bathroom. The beds were covered with white clean and crisp linens and every time we entered our room we noticed how fresh it smelled. The dining room table was always covered with all kinds of complimentary baked goods. The guest fridge which is in the basement is stocked with complimentary bottled water and soda, plus additional snacks. Having snacks always available made it very easy with my son. Although we don't drink, I should mention there is also complimentary wine and beer. 

The barn is always open for guests at the inn. Everyone who works at the barn is super nice and so friendly. The owners come by every day to tend to their horses and they are more than willing to stop what they are doing and chat with the guests from the Inn. We learned so much from them. Super nice people!! My son had a great time and probably spent more time in the barn than in our room. We will definitely be back! He enjoyed this place so much that he passed on Hersheypark and most of the activities in order to get back to the Inn and his friends in the barn."

Frank retired as owner of Frank’s Foreign Cars in 2010.

It’s great fun introducing them to the area and finding new ways to make their stay with us as special as possible.”
