Autumn in Lancaster, PA

As the leaves continue to change colors and drop, I’m reminded of the simple joys of Fall:
the variety of colors, chrysanthemums, and cooler weather. Adamstown Inns and Cottages has not disappointed with their gardens and porches filled with fall colors! Not only will you enjoy the flowers at this Lancaster Pa bed and breakfast, but make sure you save time for a side trip to Longwood Gardens.
Until November 21, Longwood Gardens is showcasing Autumn Colors in both their indoor and outdoor gardens. Walking around outside you’ll observe asters, orchids, berries, and a Japanese Maple that is in full bloom. The rose garden is beautiful and there is Swiss Chard in the Idea Garden. You’ll want to hurry though, since many of the outdoor gardens are at their peak before the first frost of the season.

The indoor conser-
vatory has a breath-
taking array of
chrysan-
themums, orchids, roses, and fruit trees. A giant water lily display will amaze you, and the largest thousand bloom chrysanthemum is a spectacular view. The pruning and meticulous care needed to achieve a large amount of uniform blooms is mind-boggling, so be sure to ask for more information about the Thousand Bloom!

The East Conservatory Plaza construction is finally complete, so there’s a new area to explore! The plaza features design elements based on the conservation of natural resources, with natural lighting and insulation of earth.

Longwood Gardens is just an hour away from Adamstown Inns & Cottages and a definite must see! Plan your romantic weekend getaway to this Lancaster County bed breakfast today, and let us know if there’s anything we can do to ensure a pleasant stay!
