Painting With King's Cottage

We’re always trying to do new things at King’s Cottage Bed & Breakfast, and the month of August is no exception. From free art instructions at our location to new attractions from our favorite businesses, there is never a shortage of entertainment when you stay with us.

On August 9 we will be inviting guests to receive free art instructions from Tom F. Hermansader, who has been painting Lancaster County’s most noted landmarks for more than four decades. The class will take place from 12 PM to 2 PM and will be limited to 30 people. Guests are encouraged to bring art supplies, a chair or easel, and their portfolio for Tom to critique.

Tom F. Hermansader is prolific with his work in the state of Pennsylvania. He has captured Lancaster City, Lancaster County, and more than 100 other locations throughout the state with his realistic style. His art can be viewed at hermansadersartgallery.com or at The Hermansader Victorian Mansion & Art Gallery, located at 420 Chestnut Street, Columbia, Pennsylvania.

One of our most recommended businesses, Strasburg Scooters, is also doing something unique from July 17 to August 28. They will be providing what they call Date Night in Amish Country, which is a slight variation of their standard covered bridge tour. 

This tour, at only $78 per couple, is a scaled down version of their 5 star rated covered bridge tour. It includes a single seat, 50cc scooter which will take you and your date through the countryside, including Amish farms, school houses, and a 19th century covered bridge with an experienced guide. After the guided ride, each couple can continue their date at The Iron Horse Inn to enjoy complimentary “All You Can Eat Wings” courtesy of Strasburg Scooters.

Here at King’s Cottage Bed & Breakfast, we pride ourselves on making sure our guests experience the best that Lancaster County has to offer. Whether we offer an event at our location or send you to one of our favorite businesses, you can rest assured knowing that we will only recommend something that we have experienced and enjoyed ourselves. We look forward to seeing you soon!
