The original exposed brick walls and wood ceilings build a nostalgic atmosphere at the Cork Factory Hotel. Once the site of Lancaster Cork Works, the towering chimney stack, red brickwork and cork tile cladding pay homage to the building’s industrial roots, while the 93 guest rooms keep things simple with textures of leather, brick and wood. Reserve a table at the Cork & Cap restaurant for tasty home comforts including meatloaf with three-cheese macaroni.

3. Lancaster Arts Hotel, for a taste of local creativity

With its antique furniture and calming views of grazing cows and fertile farmland, there’s no mistaking you’re in the heart of PA’s Amish country.

For a hotel in the heart of Amish country, the Courtyard is about as 21st-century as it gets. In fact, it’s the first branch of the chain to run completely off solar power, and has an electric vehicle charging station. The rooms are spacious, stylish and – most impressively – soundproofed. Enjoy a cold beer by the pool during the day, a hot cocoa by the fire pit at night, and soak up the silence of the Lancaster countryside.
