The scoop: Where the heck is Terre Hill? Well, it’s far enough away from Amish Country’s touristy Route 30 corridor, yet close enough for a night out in downtown Lancaster. This cozy, unassuming B&B doubles as a gallery for innkeeper Bruce Garrabrandt’s remarkably detailed, always humorous work in colored pencil. His wife, Jan, is an artist 
in the kitchen, especially when 
it comes to her highly addictive, 
fresh-baked cookies.

Amenities: Whirlpool tubs, gas stoves and fireplaces, flat-screen TVs, and other perks vary by room. The carriage house can accommodate up to eight, and kids stay free.

Don’t miss: The abundance of Amish and Mennonite culture in 
Terre Hill, sans hype. Kick it up a culinary notch and head to Fenz, one Lancaster’s best restaurants, specializing in a sleek yet casual vibe and upscale, expertly plated comfort food.
