About Daniel & Susan Ruffner

After 36 years of marriage we wanted to venture out and work together again. We enjoy the beach, a good flea market and our 4 grandsons. We really enjoy seeing the families get excited about their time together at the Inn.

Daniel & Susan Ruffner purchased this barn in 2008

Why Daniel & Susan Ruffner chose Pennsylvania

We shopped all over the country to find an Inn we liked. The first time we saw Canna Inn we were excited to find such a spacious and interesting property. It has wonderful common areas for families to relax and enjoy as well a rich history dating back to 1850. Until we moved here , we didn't realize what a wonderful location it was, just a short drive from Harrisburg, Hershey, Lancaster, and Gettysburg. Families can find lots to do or just hang and enjoy the Inn and each other.

What makes this barn unique

,When you book this vacation rental your booking an entire Bed and Breakfast Sleeping up to 26 for retreats, business meetings or reunions. Breakfast not included.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Came here with 5 families to celebrate my in-laws' anniversary. Plenty of room, 2 kitchens, nice patio area with a fire pit were all pluses. The game room with a pool table and fussball table was the best. We plan to return if at all possible.

A Perfect Wedding

  • 5 of 5

Canna Inn became our "home away from home" as we hosted 125 guests on site for our daughter's wedding. The charm of the restored barn and beauty of its grounds provided the perfect canvas for a lovely outdoor event. By renting the inn for the entire weekend, we were about to accommodate the wedding party, extended family members and the bride and groom. The well equipped kitchen facilities allowed us to cater the wedding ourselves and stay well within our budget. Guests were absolutely taken by the setting and felt comfortable lingering well into the evening. The innkeepers, Susan and Daniel, maintain a well-manicured property and seem to take great pride in all that Canna has to offer. Prior to the weddng they were always a phone call or email away and were a tremendous resource as we planned all the details. Looking back, we wiould not change a thing about hosting this very special occasion at Canna Inn. Finding it was like finding a dream come true.

Annual Sibling & Spouse Outing

  • 5 of 5

My family had our annual sibling and spouse reunion at Canna Country Inn this year. We had a wonderful time there! There was more than enough room for the 8 of us - master suites, kitchens, lounging both inside and out. The game room was an added bonus as was the stream and hammock in the back. I can't say enough good things about your restored barn!! I highly recommend it for your group gatherings!

Awesome weekend getaway with family

We were very impressed with Canna Country Inn. It was clean and very well kept up. It is very spacious so you can be together or take some time alone in your little corner. Daniel & Susan are very friendly and gracious hosts.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

The Canna Country Inn is the perfect place to host any kind of family event. Susan and Daniel were a pleasure to work with. We felt welcomed the moment we stepped in the door. The Inn is so beautiful, spacious and cozy. Beautifully decorated from top to bottom and provided everything you could possible need, as if it was your home away from home. We had our wedding here and the grounds were just as beautiful as the house. We enjoyed our stay very much and it was really hard to leave after spending the weekend. The price was good and every dollar was well spent. We look forward to coming back.

Very impressive

  • 5 of 5

We, seven couples, were blown away with our first impression, spacious, and decorated with style, and elegance. We felt welcomed by the amenities. Kitchen was well stocked. Furniture was comfortable, and bed linens soft. We would definitely recommend this lodging.
