Millersville is a charming borough nestled in Lancaster County, the heart of Pennsylvania’s Dutch Country. Millersville was originally founded in 1761 by John Miller. During the 18th century, Miller operated a blacksmith shop and hardware store. His family’s homestead, which was built in 1763, is now Millersville University. As a college town, Millersville has a vibrant atmosphere. Unfurtunately, there isn’t a veterinary clinic in town, but you can find veterinary care in nearby Lancaster should you need it.
You and your pup can literally spend days exploring the heritage and beauty of Lancaster County. Set up base at the Blue Rock Bed and Breakfast. After a day out and about, settle in for the night with your pooch in the Cabin Family Suite. You’ll pay just a small pet fee, but that’s nothing compared to the memories you’ll make with you pooch. Each morning, enjoy a scrumptious home cooked breakfast before heading out for the day.
Freedom Memorial Park is Millersville’s only park, so the local dogs go mutts over this place! Take your pup for a stroll around the paved walking path. He’ll love exploring the well manicured grounds and wandering through groves of mature shade trees.
No doubt about it, your pup will love
