The Country Hearth Bed & Breakfast is a historic home located in the heart of Lancaster County and has welcomed guests since 1997. Originally the Dilworth’s Rocking Horse Bed & Breakfast, it was started by Fred Dilworth, who was a local carver and had a woodshop in the carriage house. As you enter, you will see the hearth that was used for cooking in the original home. The hardwood floors, random-width doors, mantels, and built-ins will help you embrace the history of this charming stone farmhouse.
