Well, hello! Thanks for stopping by.

We’d like to share our story with you.

We’re a local family who loves people, our community, and a good project. After purchasing The Carriage House in August 2017 we rolled up our sleeves and got to work, pouring our energy into updating the rooms and property. Most importantly, we began investing our hearts into creating a peaceful spot that travelers could call home for a bit.

Our vision is for The Carriage House to be a place where our guests experience warm hospitality, simple beauty, and refreshment. Whether you’re traveling solo or vacationing with family, we’d love to be the ones to welcome you to Lancaster County. We look forward to meeting you soon!


Let us introduce ourselves.

 Jeremy & Jenna Peifer 

Hi! I’m Jenna. This is Jeremy. He’s the visionary and I’m the realist. He loves big projects, runs multiple businesses and can’t resist a new challenge. I crave simplicity and order and prefer a clearly planned, thoroughly evaluated path.  Most days this works for us, and some days we’re both refined by our differences. Before we purchased The Carriage House at Strasburg, we didn’t work together on professional projects.  The inn has allowed us to collaborate, combining my eye for detail and design with his big-picture vision.
When he’s not working on one of his other business ventures, you can find Jeremy chatting with customers or diving in to a project at the inn. Mostly, his wheels are spinning with ideas about what we’ll do next at The Carriage House (and beyond!). I prefer to hide out, dabbling in the social media aspect of the business and slowly creating systems, order, and beauty from the initial chaos of the property. We’re both local to Lancaster County, and our family now resides in Strasburg. We’ve got 5 young children who you’ll find greeting guests, making artwork for the office, or snatching a cookie from the stash we keep for our visitors. We love God, this community, and making a spot for travelers to be at rest.

Sharon & Kevin Adams

Let me introduce you to Sharon and Kevin, my mom and stepdad. When they heard Jeremy’s vision for The Carriage House at Strasburg, they quickly became our biggest supporters and business partners. Mom manages the housekeeping staff and is the assistant front-desk manager. She’s got a special gift for making you feel like family, and she’s a favorite among our staff and guests. Kevin does our accounting, showing us the logistics of what it takes to make our ideas a reality. He cheers us on while working full-time as a purchaser for a local food distributor. Whether they’re spending time with grandchildren or interacting with guests at The Carriage House, they desire to glorify God and love people well.

Heather & Jon Krause

My sister and brother-in-law, Heather and Jon, joined the team in April 2018 after Jon left a twelve-year career in banking to become our on-site manager. He oversees the day-to-day operations at The Carriage House at Strasburg and does everything from booking reservations to maintaining the property. His favorite part of the job is interacting with guests and he’s the ultimate in customer service!

Whether you need extra towels or have a dead car battery, Jon will figure out how to best serve you. Plus he’s our resident meteorologist, so just ask him the next time you need the forecast. Heather works part-time as an in-home caregiver and helps to take care of us all. She watches our five children while we work, keeps Jon fed, and assists with housekeeping from time to time. 



The decor was warm and welcoming and everyone was helpful and friendly. Breakfast at the Speckled Hen across the street was an unexpected bonus! The owners have reinvented what a motel can be. We will be returning to stay again.


The Carriage House is so comfortable and welcoming. The owners and employees are the best I've ever encountered while traveling. The motel is spotless and quiet. Peaceful! I can't say enough good things about this place. When I finish this review I'll be booking our third visit.


If you're looking to escape a big city to take time to relax, The Carriage House at Strasburg is the perfect place to stay! Sight & Sound Theatres is 5 minutes away and the shopping outlets are also close by. The rooms are very clean and cozy. I highly recommend The Carriage House for a relaxing weekend.
