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.
Location: 
Route 896, PO Box 159
Strasburg, PA (near Lancaster)

Pluses: 
  • 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.
Minuses: 
  • 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.
