Our first B&B

5 am November 12, 2017

The entire process from beginning to end was easy. Karen responded quickly to emails and upon arrival Norm and Karen gave us the tour and explained everything. Alpine room was very clean, cozy and comfortable. The entire grounds are very well maintained. The breakfast was excellent and if you leave hungry that is your own fault. Norm was a gracious host and entire staff did an excellent job. We will be returning.

Antwort des Gastgebers

We're happy that your first time at a B&B was with us, and you were cozy and comfortable! Thanks for being great guests, we look forward to your return.

Beyond our expectations!

5 am September 05, 2017

There are not enough positive words to describe Twin Pine!! Norm is a wonderful host! He is such a friendly, kind man and wanted to be sure we were enjoying our stay. Our room was clean, fresh and absolutely beautiful. Breakfast was delicious and had a nice variety of options. We were totally relaxed and felt at home at the B & B. When we travel to that area, we will be booking our stay at Twin Pines!

Antwort des Gastgebers

So happy we went beyond your expectations! We loved having you and hope to see you soon again!

Twin Pine Manor

5 am Oktober 27, 2015

This was our second stay on a glorious October weekend. I would come back in a instant. The place is just so nice and you get to know the owner who makes you feel like you are a relative rather than just a guest. The place has good theme rooms that are nicely done and you get to meet a nice group of people. Thanks Norman for a great time.

Antwort des Gastgebers

Thank you and come again! Norm so enjoys opening his home to people and welcoming them in.

Twin Pine Manor Bed & Breakfast is #1

5 am Juli 10, 2015

This was our first Bed & Breakfast experience, and we feel staying anywhere else would pale in comparison. The Tower Suite was luxurious with gorgeous 360 degree views of the countryside. The common areas were expansive while being warm and welcoming. And the food was superb!!! The staff made us feel, not like guests, but like we were coming home to family. We can't wait to come back! Rick & Kitty - New Jersey

Antwort des Gastgebers

We love first time B&B guests! Thank you for rating us #1! Please come again.

Perfect getaway! May 8-10, 2015

5 am Mai 10, 2015

My husband and I just got back today from our perfect getaway. This was the first time that my husband and I went away since having our two kids and it was the perfect opportunity since it was our 5 year wedding anniversary too. We stayed in the amazing Tower Suite and felt like royalty. Checked in by 6:30pm Friday evening and went to a local restaurant for a delicious meal, then came back and got a glass of wine and walked around the property admiring the trees, gardens, and grass. On Saturday, we took the beautiful drive to Lititz and enjoyed the morning and afternoon there. Then we returned to Twin Pine, got an ice bucket, bottle of wine, and two wine glasses. We found a perfect spot on the lush green grass and grabbed a blanket and spent several hours just enjoying the peace and quiet that Twin Pines has to offer. It was the perfect way to spend the evening - my husband and I had the opportunity to truly connect and relax together for the first time in 3 years. The roof top deck offers great views of the stars and the trees are just lovely to stare at. The breakfast was mouth-watering good. The staff's hospitality was so refreshing! We definitely plan on coming back in the future. Thank you Norm and staff - the B&B was magnificent! Lauren and Dennis (Marlton, NJ)

Antwort des Gastgebers

It makes us happy you spent your 5 year wedding anniversary with us! Thank you for describing your time here so beautifully.

We stayed here at a marriage retreat in March 2015, everything was perfect, start to finish, only complaint, and it's NOT against the B&B, but Mother Nature herself, we had to leave early since it was snowing :( Other than that everything was quite wonderful ... very quiet, peaceful and overall the B&B is GORGEOUS! If you stay here take the time to wander around and look at the antiques ... it is a gorgeous place!! The cooks were awesome and we even knew her husband! lol! Small world! I would recommend this place to anyone wanting a CLEAN, QUIET B&B in the Lancaster Co area ... can't complain about anything!

We so enjoyed you and your marriage retreat group. Thanks for staying with us!

Great Weekend Away

4,0 am März 03, 2015

Karen, Good morning. I wanted to let you know we had a great stay this past weekend at your B&B. The room was quiet, warm and very comfortable.

Thanks again and I am pretty sure we will be returning when there is no forecast for snow….

A beautiful place!

4,6 am Dezember 12, 2014

My husband & I had a very stressful year, so we were looking forward to a restful, relaxing weekend in one of our favorite places, Lancaster PA. Twin Pine Manor Bed & Breakfast fit the bill in every way! The common areas of the home were beautifully decorated yet very comfortable and provided a relaxing atmosphere. Our room was immaculate and had all the comforts of a quaint B&B. It was a pleasure meeting Norm, the innkeeper, and really enjoyed hearing the history of its beginnings. The breakfast menu was so enjoyable, and the folks dining with us were all very nice. We definitely plan a return visit!

Thanks for de-stressing at the Manor! Happy to hear you had a restful weekend!

Breathtakingly Beautiful

5 am Oktober 29, 2014

The mansion is absolutely gorgeous. There are plenty of places to hang out around the house, and the grounds if you desire. Pretty close to attractions. Quiet and serene. The innkeeper Norm is very nice and makes you feel welcome. We even had to bother him closer to 11pm our first night there because we accidentally locked ourselves out of our room and he was very nice and understanding about it. Would love to return sometime.

Antwort des Gastgebers

Even though you mentioned you hardly ever stay at B&B's, we're glad you picked ours! It was lovely having you. Please return!

Our stay recently at Twin Pines was outstanding!! We were treated very well and felt like part of the family and very much at home in the enormous, beautiful home. It was such a warm feeling and cozy to be in such an extravagant home and feel like you were 'at home'. Accommodations could not have been any more elaborate or classy. We enjoyed indoors and outdoors and the elegance of it all at Twin Pines. It is such a wonderful thing that Norm shares his beautiful home with many people to have them feel welcomed and pampered for a real get-away in fashion and style! Thanks again to all staff and Norm for a wonderful, enchanting experience. We will return! On a scale of 1-10 - we will give you a 12+ Tom & Marge

My wife and I stumbled upon Twin Pine Manor for an anniversary getaway. We were pleasantly surprised by the overall experience. The property is very unique and high quality.

What a Find

4,4 am August 04, 2014

Twin Pine Manor is a beautiful, serene B&B, tucked away, off of a main road in Ephrata. The grounds are gorgeous, the B&B is spectacular and the service is excellent! My sweetheart and I enjoy open space, fresh air, sunsets with a glass of wine and exploring new places. Our weekend at Twin Pine Manor gave us all of that and more! Thank you, Norm, for creating such a special place! Linda B.

Yes, we are tucked back a winding driveway. You can only see our rooftops from the road, but we try to create a peaceful oasis for our guests. So happy you enjoyed your visit!

Anniversary Getaway

5 am Juli 06, 2014

This is a wonderful Bed and Breakfast establishment. Breakfast was fantastic and the entire manor is set for relaxation and comfort. Chocolate Chip cookies are available during the day and are just wonderful. Both Norm Kurtz proprietor/inkeeper and and Karen Ruiz were very welcoming and friendly. They have the most exquisite kitchen at the manor also. The room we had was just right and was well furnished and comfortable. I have recommended Twin Pine Manor to quite a few friends and we hope to return in the near future.

Antwort des Gastgebers

Thanks so much for recommending us to others! "Word of mouth" is sometimes the best advertising possible for a B&B. Hope to see you soon.

An extremely pleasant and safe haven

5 am Juli 06, 2014

My husband and I was celebrated our 21st Wedding Anniversary. This was our first experience ever in a Bed & Breakfast Accommodation. It was everything we had ever dreamed of and has sparked our interest to always look for this type of accomodation when going out of town. We were greeted with warmth and made to feel welcomed. What we liked most was the privacy and cleanliness of the entire facility. We liked that we didn't have to have room service because everything we needed was there. We used the exercised equipment two days while there. The breakfast was healthy and nutritious. Everything was great and whenever we go that way again, we will definitely make reservations to stay there.

Antwort des Gastgebers

We're happy to hear your interest was piqued for B&B's after you first stay in one! Thank you so much for staying with us and taking the time to write this great review!

Best B&B in the world!!

5 am Juni 27, 2014

Our bridge group spent the weekend at Twin Pine. A friend had recommended it. It exceeded our expectations. Each room has a jacuzzi tub, fireplace, shower stall, large TV, DVD player. Facility had large workout room, fully equipped, grand piano ( player ) , warm chocolate chip cookies, self serve assortment of hot beverages. Magnificent gardens, pond, lawns. Breakfasts were special - cooked and served by the cook and the owner. Can't rave enough.

This is a Winner!

5 am Juni 25, 2014

The first impression upon turning in the driveway was "Wow! This is beyond beautiful! Everything about Twin Pine Manor was far beyond what we have experienced in over 10 other B&B's. Cleanliness & comfort was perfect, as was the breakfast - delicious & plenty of variety. We shall return!

"The very best"

5 am Juni 15, 2014

My wife and I have stayed at over 50 inns/b&bs' in several states, in our 31 years of marrage. Twin Pine Manor rates as one of the BEST. The owner and his staff were exceptional as were the accomodations, ammenities and the estate setting. We will return.

What you see is what you get

5 am Juni 05, 2014

And what you see is truly beautiful. The grounds, the house, our room (Victorian), the breakfast were fabulous. Norm is a congenial host when we met him at breakfast. Karen welcomed us and gave the tour. Brenda prepared two wonderfully scrumptious breakfasts. What a treat! We loved the in room Jacuzzi. Ephrata is convenient to all the Lancaster area for touring. There are many restaurants and things to do to choose when planning your stay. We went to the Cloister because we arrived at Twin Pine after lunch and there was no one there to let us in. Check in time is 4 PM. This was the only inconvenience. The Cloister tour which is closeby was very informative and I would recommend it. We returned to the B&B at 3:15 and sat in the gazebo chatting until 4 when we were admitted. We would have preferred early admittance to drop off luggage but it was worth the wait. Every detail to each and every room in the house was meticulously decorated. We went with friends and we had fun playing games and shooting pool. The music coming from the piano was soothingly upbeat and put everyone in a happy mood. Would love to return in the future.

Antwort des Gastgebers

It was a treat having you visit us! We so enjoy first-timers to the Manor, and hope to see you again.

Great Place

5 am Mai 06, 2014

My husband and myself always stay at Twin Pine Manor when we go up to Sight and Sound performance. I chose this bed and breakfast after researching on-line days to find a bed and breakfast. The first time we went we fell totally in love with the place. Norm and his staff is so friendly and the food was great. We usually stay one night but have done two nights. The next time we have decided to do two or three nights after talking to others there and finding out about several other places and events in the area.

Antwort des Gastgebers

We're so happy your online research paid off! The beauty of B&B's is often talking to other guests and discovering new things to do in the area you've never done before. Thank you for this great review!

my engagement

5 am April 05, 2014

This review is a little late but I want to give them credit because this place was outstanding! We stayed in the Tower Suite which was beautiful. It was two floors with an outside deck that overlooked the entire property. The bedroom is on the top floor and access to the deck it out the bedroom. The grounds were amazing! Such beautiful landscaping and my favorite the lighted gazebo since that's were my fiancé proposed! The breakfast is excellent, homemade and very good. I can't say enough good things about this place it is very quiet and a great place to getaway and relax. We will definitely be back.

What can I say OUTSTANDING AGAIN !!!!!!!!!!!!

4,8 am Dezember 09, 2013

Once again we were not disappointed. We arrived on Nov.22 and were staying till Nov.24. We were greeted at the door when we got there. We had arrived early because we were going to see a show at the Sights and Sound Theatre and they had made it so we could check in early before we went. Everyone was AWESOME !!!! We cannot say enough for Norman and his staff they were all outstanding and aimed to please all who stayed there. The Breakfast that was made for us each morning was incredible and very yummy. I just cannot say enough about them. This was our second time going back there. We cannot wait to go back to our weekend getaway again next year and the year after that etc. etc. etc. We highly Recommend this Bed and Breakfast and if you do not choose to go to Twin Pine you will be making a big mistake.

Felt like part of the family!

4,8 am November 27, 2013

This was my first time staying at a Bed and Breakfast and Twin Pine Manor exceeded my expectations! I was hesitant about the privacy factor, but the Alpine Suite was located at a semi-private area and didn't make me feel like I was intruding on anyone else's space or vice versa. Norm was very welcoming and humble, while wanting to ensure you felt like part of the family! He was available to provide restaurant and activity suggestions during the stay and enjoyed hearing about the guests travels. Did I mention about the chocolate chip cookies and Judy's amazing breakfast? After talking to a few of the other guests, it seemed like we weren't the only ones keeping tabs on how many cookies were disappearing throughout each day! Besides being a beautiful facility, I really appreciated the cleanliness throughout...everything was impeccable!!! I truly see why Twin Pine was voted one of the top ten B&B's!

great room - great house - great meal - great service - great ammenities - just plain great

Our first B&B experience and we absolutely loved it!

5 am November 15, 2013

This was out first Bed and Breakfast experience and we loved it. The room was very nice and neat, everything you may need was there, and a fireplace in each room was a nice touch. Good job Twin Pine Manor, we plan on staying again in the near future.

Great B&B

4,4 am November 14, 2013

My husband and I wanted to get away for a weekend this November 2013. This weekend was a busy weekend for the area. I happened to be searching I wanted everything this Bed and Breakfast offered. They had one room left which was the Windsor room and we booked it. The room was very nice and relaxing. My husband said I did good booking this room. Breakfast was great too. You meet friendly people at B&B's which makes it enjoyable too. I would highly recommend this B&B for a nice get away. If you like outdoors Twin Pines has a nice outside area too walk around too when it's warmer weather.

Thank you for recommending us. Our goal is always to give our guests a relaxing and peaceful weekend.

The best of several B & B experiences

4,8 am November 08, 2013

This was our 3rd stay with Norm, the innkeeper. His B & B is truly a manor with a beautiful great room and suites. You are free to enjoy the manor's common areas. The grounds are beautiful, especially in spring and summer. Breakfast is outstanding with 3 choices each morning served in a lovely dining room.

Antwort des Gastgebers

Thank you. And you're right, this year the gardens were especially beautiful in the spring and summer. Looking forward to your 4th stay with us next year!

It deserves a Top 10 Rating !

5 am September 19, 2013

We stay at Twin Pine Manor over Labor Day weekend and enjoyed every minute. From the moment we walked in we felt welcome as we were shown beautiful public rooms for everyone to enjoy. We stayed in the Country Oak Suite which is very spacious with a two person jacuzzi in the bathroom. The furnishing in our room and the public rooms were all so unique and interesting. The breakfast was delicious. We enjoyed sitting out on the public porches and walking through the beautiful flower garden. The staff really made us feel welcome. I'm sure we will go back again.

The best place to stay in Lancaster

5 am September 05, 2013

We will definitely be returning to visit Twin Pine Manor. It is by far the cleanest, most tastefully decorated and well stocked bed and breakfast that we have ever visited. The grounds and landscaping only added to the beauty of Twin Pine Manor. We felt so comfortable there, and felt pampered throughout entire stay. The amenity’s that were included such as the countless number of coffee selections, homemade cookies, a tremendous fitness room and a wonderful breakfast really made our visit complete. A special thank you to Norman and Karen who made us feel really special. Our only regret is that we did not stay longer. If you are visiting Lancaster, PA, this is the place to stay!

Antwort des Gastgebers

We're happy to hear you felt comfortable and pampered at the same time. Please visit us again, and thank you for this great review.

Romantic and Relaxing...Exceptional!!

5 am September 05, 2013

This was our second stay at the manor. It was even better the second time around. We had a blast. I would recommend this manor to everyone. The grounds are well manicured and the surround view of the open fileds are gorgeous. I can't wait to go back.

Consider Twin Pines Manor your only option in Dutch Country

5 am August 27, 2013

Conveniently located off the main route (but still easily passed and relativity secluded given the brilliant landscaping) located in the charming town of Ephrata. Set in a non-touristy location free from the traps of dutch country. If you're interested in that sort of thing, it's a short 30 minute drive away in Bird in Hand. It's about 10 minutes from Lititz which is a home to a quaint main street complete with fine dining, shopping, and culture. The home itself is an engineering marvel. Despite it's many additions it has a flow which is both original and easy to navigate. Each piece within was clearly chosen meticulously by the proprietor, Norm, who's impeccable taste is evident everywhere you look. It's country, but not kitschy. It's modern, yet warm. The staff caters to your every need, without being intrusive. Incredible Thanks Clifton

My husband and I chose this Bed and Breakfast for our 1st Year Anniversary. We loved how cozy the room was. It was perfect and exactly what we wanted. Everything was kept very clean and the grounds were just beautiful for picture taking. Norman was absolutely great and so accommodating. I believe we stayed during the week and breakfast was not provided but we were given a free breakfast that wasn't too far away and it was fantastic! We will definitely have a future stay here again!

Twin Pine Manor is THE choice for a stay in Lancaster County!

5 am Juli 28, 2013

One word describes our stay at Twin Pine Manor....WOW! I have to thank the former guests who had taken the time to give such wonderful reviews of the B& made my decision an easy one to make. Norm warmly greeted us upon arrival and showed us the property. He was a delight and made us feel so welcome. My husband and I stayed in the Alpine Suite to celebrate 7 beautiful years of marriage. We couldn't have been more pleased with the amazing accommodations. The breakfasts served in the tea room were unbelievably delicious (Thank you Angie!) and it was so nice to meet the fellow guests staying at the manor. The rooftop deck is a perfect spot to view either a sunrise or sunset and I could not get over how beautiful the gardens were. Twin Pine Manor far exceeded our expectations! We plan on sending our parents on a weekend getaway and definitely plan on staying again!

Twin Pines is one of the Best if not the best Bed and Breakfast in Lancaster County. The accommodations are 5 star quality and Norm is a gentleman and gracious host. The place is magnificent inside and out with all the amenities you can think of or want. Its located close to the Lancaster shopping outlets and Hersey Park. Its a great choice when getting away for a few days. Its intimate and comfortable better than any hotel and a good place to share a morning meal with new friends.

Greatest B & B Experiece Ever!

5 am Mai 15, 2013

Twin Pine Manor is an unforgetable B&B experience, from the moment Karen greets you at the door to Brenda's unbelievable breakfasts and Norman's welcoming you into his home. This B&B lacks absolutely nothing, Twin Pines Manor has it all plus! My wife and I had wonderful talks with Norman during our visit. Our breakfasts each morning that Brenda presented to us was... Well all I can say is there was a lot of mmmm's. There are refreshments all day and night if wanted including fresh cookies and your choices of coffees and teas.Normally I can be critical about a wide variety of things. Honestly I could not find one thing that is negative with Twin Pines Manor. Who knows you may even meet a cast member of Amish Mafia like one couple did on our stay.

Antwort des Gastgebers

It makes us happy when we hear those "mmmm's!" Because, of course, we are a bed and BREAKFAST! We can't guarantee a visit from a cast member of the Amish Mafia, but you lucked out!

Peaceful and Delicious

The trip to this B&B is a combination Valentine's Day/Anniversary trip. We've stayed in both the Grapevine and the Country Oak Suites.

4,4 am Februar 17, 2013

The rooms and the property were gorgeous! Everything is the room was worked great and it was a very nice touch of leaving chocolate on our bed for V-day weekend. The food was very good, but I would liked to see more of your typical breakfast foods such as pancakes, waffles, bacon, etc. I loved how they were so many other groups we were able to hang out in (the work out room, the rec room with a big screen TV and pool table, lounge rooms with a fireplace and piano). This B & B is located in a very convenient spot with lots of towns to explore and stuff to do. I would definitely recommend this B & B to everyone I know and will hopefully be able to return in the future:)

As soon as I saw the pictures and read about Twin Pine, I knew it was exactly what I was looking for. You want to talk about beautiful rooms, an upscale breakfast and outstanding service....! Norm knows exactly how to make you feel special in this one of a kind bed and breakfast. I couldn't have asked for anything more. The weekend we stayed I planned to ask my now fiancé to marry me... We had plans to do a lot of things and Twin Pine was just the first stop. The Alpine Suite was so romantic and perfect that I popped the question that night! I had flowers sent to the room the morning before we got there, and dropped off champagne and chocolate covered strawberries the day before. Norm and his staff took care of everything and had it all set up exactly how I asked when we got there! Completely accommodating and overall top notch. Its no wonder this place is rated so high! I recommend it to anyone! Sam

Our honeymoon getaway.

5 am Januar 17, 2013

We were married on nov.2,2012. We stayed two nights in the towers room. Beautiful , eloquent , private, and had all the feel of home. Who would of thought that Ephrata, pa . Would have such a beautiful getaway!! I rate this place the best! You must come and stay here, because it is so refreshing the atmosphere here is wonderful. The rooms are decorated with taste and when you walk in the rooms you see the artwork of a lot of Amish people. The meals here were catered and fantastic. You could even get up in the middle of the night and get a freshly brewed cup of coffee or tea or hot chocolate .yum ! There was a local Italian rest. Called " riveria's" , YOU must go ther to eat.!! Their chicken Caesar salad ifs huge, delicious and only costs $ 9.00. Please try this getaway --- you deserve to treat yourself!!

We were mesmerized by this gorgeous bed & breakfast. The place was spotless and service was impeccable. We stayed in the Tower Suite. This was our first visit to a bed & breakfast and as my husband stated, this one might be hard to top. Norm was so gracious and thought of everything to make our stay memorable. The breakfast both days were delicious. We can't wait to visit during the Spring/Summer months so we can truly enjoy the outside beauty of this place.

My husband & I went to Lancaster County PA and stayed at the Twin Pine Manor B&B. This place is absolutely beautiful; just breath taking.

We stayed in the Victorian( GORGEOUS) which is on the second floor over looking acres of beautiful farm land,one could feel the peace, calm,& serenity all around.This room was immaculate as was the rest of the home. Norm the owner, is a wonderful, warm person and a very gracious host.He went out of his way to make you feel welcome & comfortable. One can see that he put his heart & soul into making this truly a peaceful, calm & tranquil place for those who just want to get away from the stress of everyday life for a while. Brenda was charming and prepared an outstanding & delicious breakfast, plenty for everyone to have more than seconds. Met some really wonderful people while we were there.

Columbus Day weekend getaway

5 am Oktober 11, 2012

Twin Pine Manor more than exceeded our expectations. When we drove up to the place we just sat in our car and were completed taken back by the breath taking views of this beautiful Bed and Breakfast. The place was PERFECT. The rooms were big and beautiful. They were decorated so tastefully. Each one done with so much thought put into it. Norm and his staff were so friendly. The gardens are meticulously landscaped. I would describe this place as a painting done by Thomas Kinkade. We are already thinking about going back next fall. The breakfast they give you is delicious. I can not say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay. Izilda & Steve, Massachusetts

My sister and I live locally. We wanted to have a get-away weekend and travel far. We both were surprised to have such an elegant B&B in our area that we did not know about.

A magical place

5 am Juni 25, 2012

I booked a special weekend with my husband and his parents to celebrate their 40th wedding anniversary at Twin Pine Manor. This bed and breakfast is truly a magical place. The rooms, the grounds, the breakfast, and the common areas area all beautiful. They are immaculate, comfortable, well decorated, and inviting. I can’t say enough good things about this place. Norm is a fantastic host and Angie cooks the most delicious breakfast ever. Twin Pine Manor was completely booked the weekend we stayed yet we felt as though we had the entire place to ourselves. Amazing. We stayed in the in Grapevine room. It is beautifully decorated and the bed was amazingly comfortable. Loved that you have access from your room to an outdoor deck with comfortable lounge chairs and stairs that lead up to the amazing views on the rooftop deck. The common areas are so comfortable and the great room has a pool table, game table, and large screen tv. We will most definitely be back and highly recommend this place to anyone looking for romantic weekend getaway. Norm opens the doors to his home and makes you feel like its yours too.

Best Ive ever been to

5 am Juni 25, 2012

Although my wife and I are younger than the typical B&B patron we love to visit different places and have been to about 15 different B&Bs in the last 8 years. We were recipients of a weekend stay after our wedding and absolutely loved everything about it. Five years later we stayed to celebrate our 5th anniversary. From start to finish this is the best place we have ever stayed. The mansion is immaculate the rooms are well done and the views from the room and the amazing roof are beautiful. This is all just the start, the breakfast is not your typical buffet but rather a gourmet feast. We had the honor of trying an egg and cheese casserole, amazing pineapple french toast and sticky sticky buns with cream cheese filling. The coffee is top notch and the perfect get you out of bed solution after relaxing in the hot tub and sleeping on the most comfortable bed ever. Another touch is the journal of your stay. It was really interesting to read the note we left for Norm 5 years ago. All in all this is absolutely a place that you have to visit.

Twin Pine Manor

5 am Mai 20, 2012

My stay at Twin Pine Manor was incredible. I went there for a personal retreat and was not disappointed. I stayed in the Victorian room. I had a great view of the beautiful scenery from my private deck. There was a jacuzzi tub in the room that was very relaxing. The room was clean and comfortable. Norm was very friendly and was intentional about making my stay enjoyable. The breakfast was delicious. Wonderful homemade delights! I had a chance to visit downtown Ephrata and Brickerville. Both places were fun to explore. I am already checking my calendar for a date to go back!!

The owner has created a magnificant home that is truly a special getaway. Not a typical B&B, this includes a game room with billiards table and a fitness area. The great room has a baby grand that provides music while breakfast is being served. Breakfast was outstanding both morinings with three different offerings plus a dessert. We had the Alpine Suite which was perfect! We will definitely return.

Getaway Weekend

4,6 am November 26, 2011

Norm was a wonderful host and we enjoyed out weekend away! The Manor itself was very private and beautiful.

Twin Pine Experience

5 am November 23, 2011

Twin Pine Manor is a wonderful experience. We have been there three times and intend to go back. Rooms are beautiful, food is wonderful and facility is one of a kind.

Alpine Suite at Twin Pine Manor

5 am November 22, 2011

This was, bar none, the best B&B I have ever stayed in. Our room was beautiful, and we were able to enter either through the main entrance or a private entrance. There was a sense of privacy here that usually doesn't exist at other B&Bs. The rooms were immaculate and beautifully decorated, as were the common areas. I have already referred friends and family to Twin Pine Manor. Thank you!

Wonderful Experience

5 am November 09, 2011

This was our first venture to a bed and breakfast. We went for our 25th anniversary. It exceeded our expectations! The place was beautiful and everyone was helpful and friendly! Breakfasts were delicious. Would definitely go again!

Tenth Anniversary

5 am November 08, 2011

We celebrated our 10th anniversary here and stayed in the Victorian. The room was absolutely beautiful! We enjoyed the private balcony for an afternoon snack and the fireplace and jacuzzi for a cozy, romantic evening. Norm was very helpful and sincere all weekend. The breakfast was the best we ever had; I especially enjoyed the stuffed peach french toast. The grounds and property are very beautifully decorated! This was one of the best weekends in our life and we will definately be back!

Loved this B & B!

4,8 am November 07, 2011

We had a great time at this Ephrata PA B & B. It sits in an area with much to do. It sits kind of between Lancaster, Lilith, Manheim, Adamstown, etc, so you can get to many places easily and quickly. We met the owner Norm. He was very nice and runs a very clean and beautiful place. Huge game room and quiet lounging areas. Place really makes you feel right at home. Breakfasts (daily at 8:30) were outstanding by the way. Our 2 days flew by way too quickly. Highly recommend and will return again!

The BEST B & B in Ephrata!!!

5 am Oktober 26, 2011

My husband and I have been going to Twin Pine Manor for 6 yrs now and love it every time. The owner, Norm, makes you feel at home and the breakfasts there are AWESOME, especially the Pineapple upside down french toast!! It is always clean and warm and inviting. Its like our home away from home!!

The best

5 am Oktober 22, 2011

My husband and I just needed a place to stay while attending a conference but now we would go to Twin Pines just to stay awhile. It is beautiful, quite and very inviting. We had a wonderful stay and can't wait to go back. Thanks Norm

Better than the pictures!

5 am Oktober 21, 2011

Wow, what a great place! We just booked this without knowing anyone who had been there and we were pleasantly surprised at how nice this was. Norm, the owner, was very accomodating and very welcoming. I can't stop raving about this place to everyone I talk to. We will be back again soon!

our little getaway

4,0 am Oktober 19, 2011

Our stay at Twin Pine Manor was wonderful. The setting was beautiful and comfortable. Breakfast was so amazingly delicious, I asked for some recipes. The modern and elegant suite was fantastic along with every other accomodation in the manor. We would definitely book again. hope to see you soon Norm, L & D

The perfect spot to catch up with yourselves

4,2 am August 28, 2011

Norm's home is immaculate and he is a gracious host. We always enjoy a peaceful stroll around the beautiful gardens. The whole setting is so relaxing and peaceful. We experienced a beautiful sunset on the roof top deck. The breakfast was delicious. This is our 7th year coming to Twin Pine Manor and will plan to return next year.

The best place ever!

5 am August 25, 2011

Very clean & beautiful lots of extras was a pleasant experience HIGHLY RECOMMEND

The only place to go

5 am August 22, 2011

Twin Pine Manor is the best B&B anyone could ever stay at. The accommodations are by far the best I have ever seen. The house is amazing and the rooms are clean and welcoming. Brenda made an amazing breakfast and Norm was very hospitable. I will definitely be back again

Wonderful Place to Get Away!!!

5 am August 06, 2011

This is the best B&B my husband and I have ever stayed at. The uniqness of the house, the beautiful gardens, the QUIETNESS, the generosity of the host...these are all reasons that make this Inn an outstanding place to stay. The Alpine Suite exceeded our expectiations. I would highly recommend Twin Pine Manor.

It was wonderful!

5 am August 01, 2011

We need so much to relax, it was just the ticket. Will go again...

Above and Beyond!

4,8 am Juli 27, 2011

My husband and I celebrated our first anniversary at Twin Pine Manor and could not have been more pleased with the service and atmosphere. The rooms are gorgeous and the entire house is incredibly clean and well decorated. We enjoyed shopping in the many antique shops just north of Ephrata and can't wait to go back again soon!

Home away from Home

5 am Juli 25, 2011

Twin Pine Bed & Breakfast is one of a kind bed and breakfast. The rooms are immaculate, the decors are awesome, the scenery breathtaking, the host so gracious, many amenities, and the food delicious! All in all it is a place you don't want to miss!

Beautiful place!

5 am Juli 25, 2011

Our stay at Twin Pine Manor was absolutely wonderful! The entire place is absolutely beautiful!! The room we stayed in (The Windsor) was immaculate, comfortable and just perfect for our weekend getaway. Norm is very hospitable and Brenda did an amazing job with breakfast. Would go back in a heartbeat!!

Another Amazing Stay

5 am April 22, 2011

This is our 3rd time staying at this Bed & Breakfast. The staff there is wonderful, the rooms are clean and cozy, and the breakfasts are absolutely delicious. We will definitely be back!!!

Can't wait to go return

4,4 am April 19, 2011

My husband and I were celebrating our 9th wedding anniversary. Our stay in the Victorian room was amaxing and breakfast was delicious. The manor is just a short drive from all the attractions in Lancaster County. We can't wait to return.

Beautiful Bed and Breakfast

5 am Februar 23, 2011

This is absolutely my favorite bed and breakfast when I want to escape to Pa. for a day or two. Norm is so gracious, and helpful when it comes to places to go and see (and eat). The ladies do a great job of cooking delicious meals for breakfast, and are always pleasant and charming to the guests. I would not hesitate to recommend Twin Pine to anyone I know, especially to people that have never stayed at a bed and breakfast. Go, and see for yourself, and bring back a lot of wonderful memories that you can share with others. Will see you in the spring Norm.


5 am Januar 05, 2011

We surprised our friends with a stay here for their first bed and breakfast. It was perfect- the food, rooms and everything was just right and the price was reasonable. We will definitely be back. My husband and I stay in all kinds of B & B's- this has to be one of the best yet. :)

Peaceful Vacation

4,2 am August 08, 2010

Our stay at Twin Pine met our expectations of being restful and peaceful. We really enjoyed our stay. The room was excellent and ground were well kept. The decor was inviting with many amenities that made our stay like being at home. During breakfast there was an assorted choices of tasteful food and good company of fellow guests. Howard & Jannitt

peace and quiet in luxury

4,4 am August 04, 2010

still trying to adjust to the "back to work life." sometimes life gets to the point where you just have to get away and have some "downtime" Boy did this finding this place hit the jackpot! Norm has a wonderful place and goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable. And Brenda's breakfast...yum... thanks so much


4,6 am Juli 19, 2010

We stayed at Twin Pines for our anniversary as well as for Valentine's Day and I have to say that is was simply awesome. We have stayed in 3 different rooms on 3 different occasions and don't know which one is better than the other. Norm is a fantastic host and he made my wife and I very confortable. We simply love staying at twin Pines, so much so, that for one weekend we called for availablity and there were no vacancies so we decided not to go anywhere! lol Fantastic manor and a great area, friendly, warm and away from everything but close enough to it all. Shops, restaurants, etc.

Plan to Return

5 am Juli 08, 2010

We had scheduled to spend our 30th Anniversary at the manor in October but health issues caused us to have to reschedule. We finally made it there in June. What a pleasant surprise. The place is gorgeous and just what we were looking for, peace and quite! The breakfast both mornings were delicious. Everything was made from scratch. Norman was so hospitable! Thanks for sharing your home with us.

A rare find!

5 am Juni 22, 2010

Every detail was perfect! Our room was luxurious (our clock radio was by Bose!) and the public areas were filled with lovely and eclectic art objects. The gardens were just beautiful, with lily ponds, sculpture, and quiet places for relaxation. The breakfast was opulent, with a tinkling piano playing in the next room. The staff and innkeeper were a delight. We absolutely did not want to come home.

All you could want...and more

4,8 am Juni 13, 2010

Surprising retreat with nearly every amenity you would want. Hospitable host and staff added personal touch. Breakfast was amazing. The Manor house has several common areas for relaxing incl porch and decks. Free Wi-Fi, comfy table and chairs in rec room made for easy connectivity and daily photo review. We'll be back.


5 am Mai 13, 2010

This place is beautiful !!!!!! The rooms are gorgeous and clean.The food is awesome for Breakfast.Norm the owner is a great guy!!!!!! My husband and I got married at Twin Pine Manor.This place is very special to us!!!!!

Certainly a must see

4,4 am April 19, 2010

My wife and I have been to quite a few Bed & Breakfast's and this one by far was exceptional! The owner welcomed us with open arms into his beautiful, exceptionally clean home where we didn't feel uncomfortably at all like some B & B. If you are looking for a place to relax and get away from reality for awhile, this is certainly the place to go. We will definetly be back !

Excellent getaway

4,0 am Januar 07, 2010

The Alpine Suite is just so relaxing. What an enjoyable, quiet stay we had without the kids!

Wonderful Experience

5 am Dezember 22, 2009

My sister and I stayed here for a weekend of relaxation and "getting away from it all". Other than having to share a bed, we thoroughly loved our room. Every detail was perfect and the entire place was pristine and peaceful. It seemed like more of a "couples only" retreat, so maybe not the best place for two silly sisters who were getting away from our husbands!

Beautiful getaway

5 am November 09, 2009

My husband and I try to go here at least twice a year. Each room is so beautiful and Breakfast is amazing. No other B & B can compare.


5 am November 09, 2009

This B & B is over the top. It is flawless in every aspect. Once you stay here, everything else will be a step below. It is like being transported to a different time. Absolutely stunning!

Best B&B

5 am Oktober 30, 2009

My husband and I have stayed at Twin Pine Manor many times. We have stayed in almost every room, my favorite is the Windsor. Norm is great and friendly and the ladies who cook for him do a great job. It is a quiet, romantic, inexpensive, and clean place to stay. I would recommend this to anyone.

Wonderful Experience!!

5 am August 11, 2009

We absolutely loved staying in this B & B. We usually stay in B & B's when we go away and this was one of the best. Wonderful hospitality and beautiful accomodations! Definetely a MUST-STAY!!

Can't wait to return

5 am Juni 22, 2009

I find many people don't particularly care for bed and breakfasts because they have the wrong idea about them. Granted, some may not be what the person or persons are looking for, but in my case Twin Pine Manor was like finding a pearl in an oyster. I've been there many times, and hopefully I'll return many times more. It's not a house, its a 10,000 sq. ft. mansion on 26 acres with the most beautiful flowers, and greenery you will see anywhere, and the mansion is immaculate in every aspect. Norman makes you feel like you're at home (I wish), and it gives me a chance to meet others. I have yet to meet an unhappy person. I sent my granddaughter and her hubby there and they said it was like being on a beautiful movie lot. Its in a perfect spot for shopping also. You can head in Lancaster, Lititz (delicious chocolates at Wilburs), and of course Ephrata so they'll be plenty to do.

Wonderful experience

5 am April 22, 2009

This weekend getaway was designed as a 2nd honeymoon for my wife and I. This B&B could not have been more perfect. The room was cozy and opened out to the deck where we enjoyed a perfect spring evening. The accomodations (fireplace, jacuzzi) were absolutely fantastic. The food prepared for us the next morning was absoultely delicious. This was definitely worth the price and the memories of this quaint setting will be priceless.


5 am Februar 25, 2009

From the time we pulled up out front until we left we had a wonderful experience. Can't say enough about everything about this B&B. Can't wait to go back.

The Best

5 am Februar 09, 2009

We have stayed in quite a few B&B over the last five years. Twin Pines is at the top of our list. The grounds are spacious and beautiful. We had one of the smaller rooms on the main floor but still had a wonderful bed and bath. The pool table and exercise room are added delights. We can't rave enough about the great breakfast. Norman is a wonderful host. We will definitely visit again.

Birthday B&B Weekend

5 am Januar 28, 2009

For the past 9 years the Pecora's have picked a B&B from B& to visit. We have booked houses with 3 rooms to 8 rooms according to the number of people traveling each year so we can fill a house and hope for a little price break. January is usually a slow time in PA and MD due to weather but a nice month to have a little break after a hectio December. We have gone back to Twin Pine Manor for the 4th time and are never dissapointed. The house is always impecable, the staff very friendly and the food outstanding. We feel right at home at Twin Pine Manor. I reccommend it to anyone who enjoys a great B&B as my husband and I do. I couldn't think of a better way to spend my Birthday.

Wonderful all around

3,6 am Dezember 02, 2008

It was a beautiful "ski lodge" looking B&B from the outside. Very cozy, beautiful, and relaxing on the inside.


5 am Oktober 21, 2008

The house was beautiful!!!!! Excellent breakfast and excellent customer service!!!! We would definitely go back!

Great Experience!

5 am September 14, 2008

My husband and I just got home from our weekend away at Twin Pine Manor. This was our first visit to a B & B and it was an absolutely wonderful experience! Norman was very friendly and treated us like we were family from the minute we arrived. Our room (Alpine Suite) was perfect and the breakfast was fantastic!


5 am Juli 02, 2008

everything was right--can't do better

a winter gettaway

5 am Mai 24, 2008

my husband and i stayed at the b&b back in dec of 2007. we enjoy trying new b&b at least once a year, but after visiting twin pine manor, nothing compares! this place is gorgeous!!! wonderful hospitality by the owner norman, delicious breakfasts, open spaces by fireplaces to enjoy playing the grand piano, reading, sipping hot chocolate or wine, etc.... we even enjoyed using the pool table and playing card games at the game table. if you are looking for a comfortable, luxurious stay, you have to visit twin pine manor. completely affordable and reasonably priced compared to any other b&b we have visited. i highly recommend!!!

My Private Retreat

4,0 am Dezember 31, 2007

This is where I go to relax and enjoy my "little world" outside of the one I live in. I am so lucky to have found Twin Pine Manor as it is truly luxurious, friendly, and you are truly treated as a friend rather than a paying guest. I have never had any complaints, and usually stay in a small room downstairs (which has the same amenities as the larger rooms) only because I am a single older woman and prefer to leave the larger rooms for couples to enjoy. I'm only sorry Norman closes the middle of Dec.-April as I would love to go at least once every 6 weeks, but I'll make my reservations and give myself something to look forward to with a big smile on my face.

Great B & B

5 am August 08, 2007

This B & B is luxury all the way. Reasonably priced and in easy proximity to all attractions. The fact that the home is open for guest use is amazing. Even if you stay in one of the smaller rooms, there is plenty of room for you to enjoy your stay. The grounds are beautiful and the breakfasts are wonderful.
