Innkeeper’s Corner: This year marks the ninth year we’ve been innkeepers here at the Churchtown Inn. While we’ve made many changes to make it feel like us, we thought for a long time the Inn’s website was welcoming and easy to use. However, it did not really convey the full beauty of the Inn and countryside. This new website has brought us into the twenty-first century and well will be keeping everyone informed as to what wonderful things are happening here in Lancaster County and the Churchtown area.
