About 1105 E KING Street

Due to the specific nature of the Bed & Breakfast business, the seller's calendar must be consulted by both agents and showings must be scheduled preferably 24-48 hours in advance. On over a half-acre of prime Lancaster land youll find an astonishingly well cared for estate that will continue to bless its new caretakers with an abundance of Lancaster County's loving guests, filling up the seven available rooms and spilling out into the far reaches of local theater, exciting downtown restaurants and shopping. Whether Amish curiosities, rural road exploring, farmer market sampling, amusement parks or more, this centrally located masterpiece is the place to be. Qualities that set this bed and breakfast apart include holding the #1 spot for best Bed & Breakfast in Lancaster County consistently for ten years running. The businesses attributes are many and the word frumpy will never enter your lexicon while visiting each carefully curated room. The main house was built by C.W. Armstrong, (yes that Armstrong, founding member of the flooring conglomerate) in 1912 in the Dutch colonial style, and at that time nothing but fields and nature dotted the horizon from all points east. Now it sits as the perfect location between Lancaster City, full of art, culture, history and an ever-expanding roster of culinary delights, and Lancaster County points of interest including Amish curiosities, a historic working railroad, shopping, etc. The grand house became a Bed and Breakfast in 1987, and under the current innkeepers tutelage (fifth in line) the business has consistently (five years running) ranked in the "Top 25 Inns in America" by Trip Advisor, along with other accolades. Not only included in the sale of this business are the exquisite properties and grounds, but also meticulously kept records that show this is a successful business venture. Also included is thorough training from current owners of day-to-day appointments, recipes and instruction for their original gourmet breakfasts (perhaps the sole reason some guests book again and again!), and all computer programs that keep the business running smoothly. An additional consideration, the current owners have up to date plans in place for a cooking school to be held in the well-appointed two car garage, and these plans with direct instruction are included in the sale- yet another very plausible source of revenue that could be added to the bottom line. The current owners, who have been painstakingly improving this massive property for the nearly ten years they have lived and cared for the bed and breakfast, also renovated their large private quarters (another distinction to set this B&B apart) just this year along with installing all new appliances in the kitchen. It consists of over 1,000 square feet; two bedrooms, office and living room, oversized laundry area (including an industrial steam iron system to make efficiency the name of the game) and private deck complete with sun shade and grill. While the innkeepers adore talking to their guests and trading stories and laughs, it is also a relief to have a real home to retreat to when the day is done. Historically, most Bed and Breakfasts do not offer such large and private owners areas as these. Do take note, there are two bedrooms on the second floor of the owners house, additional rooms designated as part of the Bed and Breakfast. Youll be delighted by the changes each season brings to the grounds; tulips and daffodils in the spring, lilacs over the summer, mums and leaf changes in the fall. Sit on the veranda to catch a breeze, or be mesmerized by the goldfish in the pond. Short of a walk around the property, winter is a time to fold into a comfortable chair or sofa with a book you selected from the library, perhaps beside the fireplace, after tucking a complimentary cookie into your pocket.
