Quentin is known primarily for its Quentin Riding Club, an extensive area of stables and arenas that allow for horse boarding, shows, training, and riding.
Often viewed as a suburb of South Lebanon, Quentin is its own community. Situated between Mt. Gretna and Lebanon, it is close to the PA Turnpike and is a quick drive from Hershey, Harrisburg, and Lancaster. Quentin is also near to attractions such as the Cornwall Iron Furnace, the activities in Mt. Gretna, and isn’t far from the PA Renaissance Faire in Manheim.
The Colemans, of Cornwall Iron Furnace fame, had horses sent from Europe and commissioned sturdy stables to be built to house the horses and carriages, along with a home for the manager and staff. Eventually, the estate developed into a equine membership organization for th boarding and care of local horsemen. Today, the Quentin Riding Club still maintains membership for those wishing to board their horses, but the club also has a restaurant open to the public for fine dining and special occasions. Several times a year, horse shows are held; saddle shows, jumping, dressage, etc.
Local restaurants, such as the Quentin Haus offer traditional home-style cooking, with many Pennsylvania Dutch favorites such as chicken pot pie. The Quentin Tavern is known for its friendly atmosphere and varieties of micro-brew beer selections.
