They have been active in various community organizations and active in local church ministry in various capacities. Both Ed and Stephanie grew up on farms in the neighboring York and Dauphin counties (with PA German heritage), met at Millersville University, and married in 1980. After teaching Special Education for six years in Lancaster schools, Stephanie became a stay-at-home mom with the birth of their first child and she home-educated their four children Jesse, Carolyn, Benjamin, and Sarah. She traveled to China in 1996 to adopt then three year old Sarah. She also enjoys gardening, cooking, and crafts. Ed grew up in neighboring York County, PA. He earned two bachelors degrees from Millersville University. The first in German and then Computer Science. He traveled and studied in Marburg Germany during his junior year at MU. He later worked in software development for ten years at MU. In 2001 Ed completed a Masters degree in Human Service Counseling at Regent University in Virginia Beach, VA. In 2010 he completed a Doctor of Religious Studies degree from Trinity Theological Seminary. Vocationally, besides innkeeping, Ed divides his time between pastoral counseling and teaching ministry in the Church, computer access technology instruction for persons with disabilities, and other ventures. Ed enjoys playing guitar, listening to worship music and studying international cultures. He has authored a book entitled Escaping the Pain of Offense: Empowered to Forgive from the Heart As a nationally certified Christian counselor, Ed also offers optional counseling and prayer ministry for guests at the B&B.

Excellent B&B and great hosts
We are so grateful to be able to find places where we can bring our dog with us.
We stayed in the downstairs room which had everything you'd need for a comfortable stay. The hosts, Ed and Stephanie were friendly, helpful, and made us feel comfortable.
Breakfasts were great, and meeting other guests was also fun. Great conversations.
My wife and I (and our dog) would definitely consider going back if we're ever in the area again.
Beautiful, quaint get-a-way!
Very nice space, in a very nice old house! The spot we had was quite large, as we had a full living room, huge bathroom and nice big Bedroom. The property is very quiet and peaceful, especially at night.
Breakfast was good in the main dining room- a great way to start the day!!
We also enjoyed the park across the street, as we were able to walk our dog and let the children play, all within walking distance of the house.
Clean, Comfortable, Restful
Stephanie and Ed were very kind and very accommodating to our small family and dog. The cabin/apartment has alot of character, with low beamed ceilings in one room, but not an issue for us (only if you are over 6 feet).The bathroom was large, with a great shower and tub, and a variety of body washes and shampoos my teen daughter was thrilled about. The toilet is contained in its own private enclosure, so more people can use the bathroom if needed. The beds were firm and comfortable. We slept so well! Stephanie makes a delicious breakfast ,with local ingredients . Both Stephanie and Ed are very helpful in directing to different sites and activities in Lancaster County and beyond. The Susquehanna River is only 6 miles away. We got to Hershey in 50 minutes.
We would stay here again. They really care about your comfort.
Nice, clean, well kept, comfortable
Stephanie & Ed were very friendly. Breakfast was plentiful. The accommodations were as presented online (basement apartment). Very comfortable queen bed. Good location for many area sights. Good value. Pet friendly with nice yard.
My wife and I with our German Shepard stayed at the Blue Rock Bed and Breakfast, and absolutely loved it. We spent 3 nights there while visiting Hershey in the fall for the antique car show. Its about 40 minutes away from Hershey, but well worth the trip. Ed and Stephanie were very friendly, and there home is very clean, and they are pet friendly. Hope to stay there again, thanks Dean.
Our hosts Ed & Stephanie were awesome. Our room was perfect for our stay. The information about what to see & do while in Millersville was helpful & the our dinner with the Amish family was a great experience. This was our 1st time staying in a B&B. Thank you Stephanie for the care package of tomatoes to bring back home with us. Would consider staying in the main house if your party has people over 6'. Ceilings low but was perfect for the girls.
