The Demuth Garden Tour

Lancaster County offers a variety of unique and interesting activities throughout the year, but now that the beautiful weather is here to stay, many activities exclusive to Spring and Summer are now open for guests. Here at King’s Cottage Bed & Breakfast we provide luxury accommodations all year, and especially during these peak months in Lancaster County.

One such activity is the 31st Annual Demuth Garden Tour & Garden Party. The tour, hosted on June 14 from 10 AM to 5 PM and on June 15 from 11 AM to 5 PM, is provided as an annual fundraiser for Demuth Museum. The museum itself is located on 120 East King St, Lancaster, PA, which is the original home of Charles Demuth and his family. The objective of the museum is to develop an understanding and appreciation of Charles Demuth, his modernist paintings, and his family’s contributions to Lancaster.

As for the tour, you will be taken through exclusive Lancaster residences, viewing an assortment of creative urban gardens and unique home interiors. The tour will also cover the Demuth Garden and Conestoga House Gardens. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 on the day of the tour.

For an exciting evening leading up to the garden tour, do not forget to make a reservation for the Demuth Garden Party, hosted the night before the first tour on June 13. It will feature live music, a silent art auction, and an open bar on the grounds of Conestoga House and Gardens, located at 1608 Marietta Ave, Lancaster, PA.

Guests may also want to keep in mind that The Demuth Museum is only 1.4 miles from King’s Cottage, allowing guests to walk to the museum and enjoy a night out in the city after the tour without ever having to enter a vehicle.

The Demuth Garden Tour is an extremely exciting event in Lancaster County, as it gives guests access to significant pieces of history in downtown Lancaster. Each garden viewed on the tour is a masterwork of urban landscaping, and the home interiors are original, historic, and beautiful. As exciting as the tour itself is, keep in mind that demand will be, and already is, very high, so plan accordingly. We look forward to welcoming you to our little piece of history at King’s Cottage Bed & Breakfast, while you view the beauty that downtown Lancaster has to offer. Sampson will be waiting to greet you at the door!
