Historical 18th-Century Inn Nestled in Heart of Amish Country

Built by iron baron Robert Coleman in the late 1700s, the building now known as the Cornwall Inn served as a post office, a general store, and even a jailhouse before becoming the quaint five-room bed and breakfast it is today. Located in the heart of Pennsylvania's Amish country, the inn immerses guests in the charms of simple, slowed-down, rustic living.

Though now stocked with modern amenities, each of the inn's rooms and suites retains its 18th-century appeal. The four-room Constable's suite houses a fireplace with an iron hearth and a whirlpool tub big enough for two. A fireplace crackles inside the Washington suite, and a swing waits outside on a secluded sitting porch. An exposed-brick wall anchors the Harkins suite, where a queen-size poster bed’s 12-foot columns stretch toward the ceiling’s original exposed beams. Even the washbasin, set into the lid of an old barrel, harks back to an earlier era.

Upon arrival, lodgers receive a snack platter loaded with fruit, cheese, and crackers. Each morning they wake up to a hot breakfast of homemade eggs and waffles. Horse-drawn buggy tours follow rural trails to a real Amish farm, passing the occasional scarecrow posing as the Statue of Liberty along the way. For the private dinner option, a guest chef culls fresh ingredients from a local market to craft a three-course meal, paired with a bottle of wine and served by candlelight in the dining room.

Cornwall, Pennsylvania: Pastoral Farmland Steeped in Pennsylvania Dutch History

Though it‘s not far from Philadelphia or Baltimore, Cornwall’s location smack-dab in the middle of Pennsylvania Dutch Country makes it feel a universe away from the nearest city. Just down the road from the inn, the Cornwall Iron Furnace conducts daily tours of its gothic revival buildings and original blast furnace.

In nearby Lancaster, meanwhile, Amish artisans show off their homespun crafts at the Lancaster Quilt & Textile Museum, which boasts one of the world’s largest collections of Amish quilts. About a 25-minute drive from Cornwall, the Ephrata Cloister stands as one of America's oldest religious communities. Its original monastic structures are remarkably preserved and open to the public.
