Sprawling Resort in Pennsylvania Dutch Country
Lancaster Host Resort sits on 225 acres in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country, a scenic farmland region known for its Amish culture. Some of the area’s best attractions are located within walking distance of the resort, including the Amish Farm and House, which features an authentic one-room schoolhouse and an 1803 stone bank barn. The nearby American Music Theatre hosts touring Broadway musicals, rock concerts, and holiday shows.
The resort has a handful of restaurants that serve classic regional cuisine. At Vistas, a casual spot with views of the golf course, guests can enjoy a complimentary breakfast buffet that includes scrambled eggs, sausage, and home fries. Next door, Legends American Grill offers hand-cut steaks and fresh seafood specialties, from caramelized sea scallops to pan-seared salmon. The resort is also home to Stitches Comedy Club, where standup comics perform. Past guests have included Drew Carey, Lewis Black, and Darrell Hammond.
Set in the sprawling countryside, the resort’s beautifully landscaped grounds include a 1.9-mile walking trail and a championship golf course that’s open when the weather cooperates. You can also dive into a heated indoor pool or play pool in the game room. Many guest rooms offer views of the resort’s pastoral surroundings, and all feature TVs and free WiFi.
