About the owner: Ed & Stephanie Hersh are Innkeepers at Blue Rock BnB. They have lived in Millersville most of their lives. They have been active in various community organizations and active in local church ministry in various capacities. Both Ed and Stephanie grew up on farms in the neighboring York and Dauphin counties (with PA German heritage), met at Millersville University, and married in 1980. After teaching Special Education for six years in Lancaster schools, Stephanie became a stay-at-home mom with the birth of their first child and she home-educated their four children Jesse, Carolyn, Benjamin, and Sarah. She traveled to China in 1996 to adopt then three year old Sarah. She also enjoys gardening, cooking, and crafts. Ed grew up in neighboring York County, PA. He earned two bachelors degrees from Millersville University. The first in German and then Computer Science. He traveled and studied in Marburg Germany during his junior year at MU.

In 2010 he completed a Doctor of Religious Studies degree from Trinity Theological Seminary. Vocationally, besides innkeeping, Ed divides his time between pastoral counseling and teaching ministry in the Church, computer access technology instruction for persons with disabilities, and other ventures. Ed enjoys playing guitar, listening to worship music and studying international cultures. He has authored a book entitled Escaping the Pain of Offense: Empowered to Forgive from the Heart As a nationally certified Christian counselor, Ed also offers optional counseling and prayer ministry for guests at the B&B.
