Take a break from reality!

Written by: John Esbenshade

We all know life can be quite stressful in today’s busy world with not enough vacation time to truly recharge and relax, and we are big believers in the benefit of taking weekend getaways.

So take a break from reality – enjoy beautiful Lancaster County and stay at the Fulton Steamboat Inn – it may be just the thing to help put things back into perspective. Isn’t that what a vacation is supposed to do after all?

As soon as you arrive to the most unique lodging in Lancaster PA, it’ll be like going back in time with the Victorian/Nautical theme and the feel of an authentic riverboat ambience of the Fulton Steamboat.

We’ll welcome you with refreshments in the lobby, and continue making you feel comfortable and taken care of as you relax, sleep, dine and play aboard our steamboat.

Plenty of activities await to help you enjoy your stay, whether you decide to leave the ship or simply sit back and relax on-board, by our sparkling indoor fully tiled pool and whirlpool (open to the whole family until 10:00pm, and for adults only from 10:00pm until midnight). Plus, if you’re traveling with your sweetheart or friends, our 3rd floor ‘Sun Deck’ is reserved for adults only. Our unique hotel also offers for your enjoyment a fire pit, walking trail and koi pond, and many fun things for kids, such as the ship shape playground, electronic game room and feeding the ducks.

Rest assured you and your loved ones don’t even have to leave the steamboat to enjoy a delicious meal or a refreshing drink. We have plenty of food and drink options right here for you; Huckleberry’s Restaurant, where on most Friday and Saturday evenings your dinner will be enriched with some sweet piano tunes, and The Tavern for drinks and specials you won’t want to miss – including our popular Happy Hour!

And when you decide to step off site, you’ll be happy to know that the hotel is perfectly located to allow quick and easy access to almost everything Lancaster County has to offer!

Drive through the farm countryside, stop to visit many historic covered bridges in the area, perhaps visit a real working farm or two and pet some animals. Stop by a farmer’s market or one of the roadside produce stands. Explore local quaint towns and villages, and set aside at least a few hours for the charming, nearby Hershey. Make sure your getaway includes a visit to Lancaster City, where you can enjoy many galleries, boutiques, eclectic eateries, see a show, and more. If you’re into shopping, you’ll love our local outlet shopping and antiquing. In essence, whatever your area of interest – Lancaster County will surely be able to offer it to you.

So whether you’re taking a girlfriend’s getaway, family reunion, couples retreat, romantic escape, or simply looking for some time away from the everyday, the Fulton Steamboat Inn and Lancaster County provide the perfect destination.

The Fulton Steamboat Inn invites guests to “Come Onboard!” and book your “steamboat passage” for your next weekend getaway Lancaster PA, in one of our staterooms today.
