Attraction Review: Hershey Farm Inn & Restaurant - Lancaster, PA

Attraction: Hershey Farm Inn & Restaurant

Hours: Open Year Round
Restaurant hours vary greatly throughout the year. Please note: the restaurant is completely closed in January and February.
Route 896, PO Box 159
Strasburg, PA (near Lancaster)

  • The hotel has a warm, family oriented atmosphere.
  • The restaurant and the hotel are very cleanly.
  • The restaurant offers a delicious breakfast and dinner smorgasbord with a wide variety of fresh foods. 
  • There is a bakery on the premises to purchase items to take home with you.
  • There are souvinier shops on the premises.
  • They have clean outdoor pool and baby pool for when the weather is nice. 
  • They have farm animals to feed and admire for the kids.
  • They have two separate playgrounds.
  • They have gorgeous gardens to wonder through and admire.
  • There is a water fall on the premises.
  • The property is conveniently located on Route 896 just down the street from the Strasburg Railroad (I think it only took about 2 minutes to get there when we stayed). Hershey Farm Inn is also only minutes from Dutch Wonderland, Tanger and Rockvale Outlets and just next store to Sight and Sound Theater.
  • There is no elevator on the premises to aid in bringing your luggage up to your room which also presents a problem for those with handicaps.
  • The hotel has an older feel to it rather than modern (it is very clean though).
  • Buses bring people to the restaurant which can flood the restaurant at certain times. 
  • Because Hershey Farm Inn is centrally located between various popular attractions the traffic getting out of the hotel can be rough at times. 

Tips: Hershey Farm Inn hosts a Whoopie Pie Festival featuring over 100 flavor Whoopie pies. This year it will be held on September 7, 2013 from 11-4.

Here are a few Getaway Packages to save you money.
