We opened Bayberry Inn in May 2001 to welcome beachgoers to a seashore bed and breakfast. After five years of operating a seashore inn, as well as working full time jobs, David working in water purification and Bonnie as a Radiologic Technologist, we decided to make a complete life change and become full time innkeepers. Our second choice when looking to open a bed and breakfast was Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. As we had spent most of our lives in Pennsylvania, we decided to return to our roots and purchase our second bed and breakfast. In April, 2006, we took over an operating bed and breakfast in New Holland, Pennsylvania. While we spend most of our time together working as a team, there are times that you will only see one of us while the other is operating Country Hearth Bed and Breakfast.
You will also meet the official greeter, Pearl, when you visit. She is a miniature schnauzer and believes that everyone is coming to visit her. She will greet you on arrival and at breakfast, but cannot sleep with you as she already has a spot reserved in our room.
You may also see one of our grown children from time to time. Kevin and Heather both live on their own but may show up at any time.
While staying with us, you can be assured we are working to be "Green." We use front loading washing machines which use one third to half the amount of water used in a top loader machine. When you consider the laundry from eight rooms, this saves a great deal of water.
