The Amanda Gish House is located in the quaint, small town of Elizabethtown in Lancaster County, PA. The home was built in 1896 by Henry B. Gish and his wife Amanda. Tax records show the land was in the Gish family from 1864 until 1942. Since purchasing the house in 1990, Ann and Dave Royer have lovingly restored the exterior and interior back to its original splendor. Beginning in 2001, Ann and Dave began offering three spare bedrooms as the Amanda Gish House Bed and Breakfast Inn. The Royer's retained a spacious one-bedroom owner's quarters as their living space. The Amanda Gish House is located on a substantial, fully shaded and attractively landscaped lot on the edge of Elizabethtown Borough with adjacent residential homes. Downtown Elizabethtown with its shops, coffee shops, restaurants, taverns and brewpubs is within easy walking distance. Elizabethtown College is only a few blocks from Downtown and is also within walking distance of the B&B. One of the largest and most highly regarded retirement villages in Pennsylvania - Masonic Village, is located just across Bainbridge Street. Elizabethtown is served by Amtrak's Keystone line offering 13 trips per weekday and 9 weekend trips per day to & from Harrisburg, Lancaster, Philadelphia and New York. The Amtrak Station is also an easy walk from the Amanda Gish House.
