Allyson is a great host and an amazing cook. Home is clean and inviting. My wife and I spent two great days there on the way back to New England, our first stay at a B&B. We joked we can't stay at another one because we doubt any can compare to the Maid's Quarters and Allyson. For the record all rooms have private baths and locks on the doors. (I have seen old reviews concerned with these issues). If your in the area you have to stay here!

Allyson is a warm-hearted person who graciously shares her time and talent with others and it totally shows in this bed and breakfast. Convenient to wineries, antiques and Yuengling Brewery. Third floor suite was absolutely charming and breakfast was beyond 5 stars!!!

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at The Maid's Quarters B & B in late October. Allyson was an excellent host and was very helpful with suggestions of where to eat in the area and places to see. Room #2 was very nice and although the bathroom was small, it was en suite which we appreciated. The breakfasts were delicious and nicely presented. We would certainly stay there again. As a footnote to other reviews, there is an unloading/check-in parking spot right in front of the B&B and a parking lot right across the street for use with tokens provided by the innkeeper.

We enjoyed our fifth visit at the Maid's Quarters! Each time we walk back into this quaint and lovely B&B, we feel immediate relaxation and calm from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. We always enjoy our time at the Maid's Quarters, and Allyson takes exquisite care of us during each visit. For example, I have Celiac Disease and must eat gluten free, but this is never a challenge for Allyson. She cooks up tasty breakfasts and yummy cookies -- all gluten free! Allyson is extremely knowledgeable regarding gluten free requirements, and she's an incredibly creative cook. In fact, she has sent me away with gluten free recipes, so I can try them at home! We are grateful for Allyson and her inspiration -- the Maid's Quarters -- and we always depart feeling rejuvenated. You'll love it too! (ps Allyson, thank you for your efforts to secure parking spots for guests in the lot across the street!!!!)

The delight is in the thoughtful details of every aspect of this surprisingly lovely stay.

This was our first stay in a B&B and we picked a winner. Allyson is a great innkeeper and fabulous cook. We enjoyed our stay and breakfast was delicious. The cookies and little treats were a bonus!
5 en octubre 19, 2013
We recently stayed at the Maid's Quarters again. The 3rd floor suite was better than ever (the day bed was a really nice addition). The food was even better than last time. Allyson is clearly doing what she was born to do. You will not be disappointed if you stay here.

We stayed at the Maid's Quarters in room 2 for one night and had a completely positive experience. The house itself is lovely and we enjoyed the historical context. Allison went out of her way to make sure that we had anything we needed. There were treats and drinks all around, the movie/book selection was great and the entire room and bathroom were very clean. Great place!
5 en octubre 14, 2013
We opted to sleep late rather than have breakfast even though Allyson offered to accommodate our schedule and go out of her way to make breakfast for us even though she served an earlier breakfast for the early risers. We have seen many reviews of how great her breakfast is, so I do not doubt the dining was outstanding as well. She made our stay comfortable and the house is cozy, nicely decorated, and clean. We would recommend others and will definitely go back.

Just spent a night at the Maid's Quarters for the third time. Each time has been an excellent experience. This time a private bath had been added to our room which made it even better. Allyson is a very warm and capable hostess. The food has always been exceptional and we enjoy all of the extra little touches, cookies in our room, a glass of wine, snacks scattered throughout the home etc. My husband and I highly recommend this B&B.

My husband and I recently had an overnight stay. The house is charming. Decorated cozy with some nice antiques. Before I booked our stay I checked out the reviews. My husband or I would not rate this B and B and 5 star as others have. First of all, this house is sandwiched between 2 dumps. One of the houses looks abandoned. Pottsville itself is not what I expected. The sidewalks in the town were in disrepair and there was a lot of liter. I will say though that The Greysone Resteraunt and The Yuengling Brewery Tour was 5 stars. Other comments about the bed and breakfast-when we arrived the inkeeper was not there. We did not know where to park-this is something perhaps she could of shared before hand. There was only one chair on the sidewalk and two of us, so no where for one of us to sit and wait for the inkeeper to arrive. We stayed in the Maids Quarters on the third floor. The apartment was nice. However, my husband and I discussed what we would do in case of fire. He had spilled water on the floor in the bedroom and cleaned it up and found a chain ladder under the bed (along with a bunch of dust and some paper.) This would be something I think the inkeeper should tell the guest upon arrival or have a note up. The snacks around were nice. The chocolate chip cookies were less than average and so was the breakfast.
4,8 en septiembre 18, 2013
The inn is very homey and the innkeeper, Allyson, is a jewel. She is very welcoming, leaves treats around for easy consumption and makes great breakfasts. Our room was large and sunny with a private bath. The only negative for Room 2 is noise from the street. I would recommend this B & B.
5 en septiembre 16, 2013
I travel on business a lot and stay in hotels that range from generic business to branded-chic. It was lovely to stay at this charming spot, a contrast to the ordinary. The breakfast was delicious and Alllyson clearly makes everyone welcome. I grew up in the area, and rememver seeing this and other rows of houses for years, so it was especially nice to retunr and to see one of them being so well-used and taken care of.

On our stay in Pottsville to tour the yuengling brewery, we stayed at Allysons B&B, and absolutely loved it! Not only is Allyson an exemplary hostess, she also exceeded our expectations with her service, attention to detail, and food. The rooms were tastefully decorated, and very comfortable. The dining area and foyer were very cozy and inviting. My wife and I had a wonderfully relaxed weekend at the Maids Quarters, and have already recommended it to our friends. We can hardly wait to go stay again.
5 en septiembre 10, 2013
My husband and I visited Pottsville, PA for the Yuengling Brewery, but our stay at The Maid's Quarters B&B was def the cherry on top. The food and service was amazing, and all of Allison's recommendations for places to go were spot on. We would definitely stay there again!
4,8 en septiembre 07, 2013
This is a gem of an inn--Allyson is very welcoming, and attentive and helpful while also giving you your privacy. The room we had was cozy with an extremely comfortable bed. I gave it four stars out of five only because it was right on the street and could be a bit noisy at night. The breakfasts are excellent, and this is the only B&B I've stayed in where you have a choice of breakfast each day. Other details, such as cookies and drinks available throughout the day, an upstairs sitting room with books and movies, and Allyson's knowledge of the local area make this a welcoming place to stay. We plan on going back.
4,8 en agosto 26, 2013
I wholeheartedly agree with the review written entitled Diamond in the Rough. Allysson was an extremely gracious hostess. Room 2 was wonderful. Breakfasts were creative and delicious. There wasn't much to do in the immediate area after we toured the Yuengling Brewery but Allyson gave us some recommendations for lunches and dinners.
5 en agosto 24, 2013
It felt like home. The owner looks like someone you know. She personally meets you at the door, serves you nice breakfast and wishes you a good trip home. She guides you to good restaurants, cafes in town. She applies her exquisite taste to the decor, furnishings and style of the rooms.You want to come back. You want to come back.
5 en agosto 23, 2013
My family and I stayed here twice in July of the last two years and will come again in 2014. The rooms are clean, quiet and nicely decorated. Allyson is an excellent host and provides very good food and local information. The location is great, parking is convenient. Late night wanderings are rewarded with treats/snacks placed conveniently around the house and single cup coffee maker downstairs---along with brandy for those wishing a nightcap.
5 en agosto 19, 2013
Returning from Gettsburg and visiting Yuengling Brewery, my husband and I stayed at Allyson's lovely and warm B&B. She was so gracious, enthusiastic, and hospitable that our stay was every bit as fun as the tourist attractions we had come down from Connecticut to visit. A lovely respite from a rushing world! Highly recommended!
4,8 en agosto 19, 2013
The city of Pottsville seems like it used to be a pretty nice historic town, previously. Now the only reason to go is to tour the Yuengling Brewery, which is well worth it. There is a decent restaurant, the GreyStone, so you wont go hungry. This B&B, however, was fantastic. Allyson is an amazing host and does a great job of making you feel welcome as soon as you step foot in the door. The room that we stayed in, Room 2, was extremely nice and had a bathroom inside. My girlfriend loved the cookies that Allyson made and she leaves little snacks throughout the house in case hunger strikes. Everything about this place was incredible. And then we got breakfast in the morning. The coffee, the coffee cake, the fruit and the french toast, everything was delicious. Somewhat surprised that someone so young had such impressive culinary skills. If i am ever in the area again, I would definitely return to the Maids Quarters.
4,8 en agosto 05, 2013
This was a very nice Bed and Breakfast. Certainly a wonderful first for me. The room (the maids quarters room) was deliciously cozy and gave a wonderful old fashioned victorian era feeling of relaxation. The tea room and dinning room were quaint and welcoming. The hostess was very friendly. The breakfast was DELICIOUS! I don't eat a certain food, so she made me a special french toast and it was very good. I wouldn' t mind going back just to have her cook for me again. :) It was wonderful for a night to relax with a good book on the cozy day bed. Some good restaurants are within walking distance for supper.

We had such a lovely stay! The rooms are delightful, the food was delicious and Allyson is a treat! Bob & Linda S. Ringwood, NJ

This place exceeded my expectations. Allyson was open and sincere. The place itself on the outside is deceptive, once you enter however it is warm cozy and simple and most of all quiet.
5 en junio 16, 2013
I highly recommend the Maid's Quarters if you are staying in Pottsville, PA! The rooms are lovely, the innkeeper is wonderful, and the food can't be beat. I give only the highest marks for my stay. My only issue (and this has nothing to do with Allyson) is that parking is pretty awful. Thanks for a terrific stay!
4,8 en junio 04, 2013
My husband and I never had an experience using B&B. We thought of taking a chance and it was fabulous. Far beyond million of words to describe our worthwhile stay. Allyson set a standard in our future stay in any B&B. Well recommended.
5 en mayo 30, 2013
We highly recommend the Maid's Quarters! We stayed here on our wedding night in the third floor suite and we were so pleased! It's quite, cozy, and VERY clean! Allyson was so friendly and accommodating. Great place!
4,4 en mayo 16, 2013
Coming to this small town for a wedding we opted for this B and B rather than the homogenous local chain motels. This place was quirky, funky(in a good way) and loaded with touches of days gone by. The large and comfortable rooms allowed the three of us to spread out and we felt none of the claustrophobic feelings brought on by a small hotel room. Allyson was helpful and gracious and breakfast was definitely a delicious and pleasant surprise. If ever we return to Pottsville we will be certain to stay with her again.
5 en mayo 06, 2013
Allyson is an amazing hostess! Welcoming, friendly, and an excellent cook. Cookies in my room next to a comfortable chair. The bed was so comfortable that I slept later than expected. It was nice to have a choice of breakfasts each morning and breakfast was delicious both mornings,. The Maid's Quarters is on my list of bed and breakfasts to visit again.
5 en diciembre 18, 2012
My husband and I stayed in November for our Anniversary. Allyson was wonderful. She took the time to work with us so that we could coordinate our visit to align with her wonderful brunch/tea. The Suite was a little bit of heaven. The little touches were wonderful. Chocolates, a Keurig with many assortments, and the homemade toiletries. I know it has all been stated before and will be again but this is the #1 B&B hands down. Allyson also helped us with getting around town, great things to do, and the food. Oh MY, the breakfast was heavenly. Now if she could just make a nice brunch everyday. Thank you again for the wonderful stay. We talk about it often and can't wait to see you again soon. Hopefully in January. Diane and Steve.

We enjoyed our stay at Maid's Quarters, Alyson was very nice and her home cooking great. Her personality was pleasant and inviting. We definitely recommend this place, we'll go back.
5 en noviembre 28, 2012
Allyson was the most charming host---not only was she very responsive to my questions before our arrival, but she also arranged all the little details after our arrival so that our stay was magical. Finishing touches like homemade cookies and antique decor really seal the experience. She's also a terrific cook! Try her teas--we sampled pumpkin pie and caramel pear (both were delicious). If you're traveling anywhere near Pottsville, this B&B will make your trip.

My significant other and I stayed at The Maid's Quarters Bed and Breakfast and had a great time. Allyson provided exceptional service and even accommodated our late arrival. Having worked at a B&B in the past I'd have to say her establishment and great service was better than I have witnessed in the past. The home is beautiful and very cozy. I didn't expect the Deluxe Room to be as big as it was. And to top it off I had her french toast croissants and it was excellent. You have truly outdone yourself Allyson!

we'd been to the maid's quarters previously for a mid-day lunch & loved the look. under the new owner allyson, it has a beautiful charm and elegance. we loved the unique look of each room [even the bathroom]. breakfast was yummy. she will see us again!!

My wife and I were looking for a last minute getaway to escape the hustle and bustle of the DC metro area. We were more than pleased with our stay at The Maid's Quarters! Allyson is a wonderful chef and hostess. Her hospitality is second to none!! We were pampered with snacks, drinks, and fresh baked treats! The breakfast was awesome with a choice of entrees each morning. Allyson was very willing to accommodate special dietary requests (even at the last minute since I forgot to tell her when I made the reservation!).
5 en octubre 30, 2012
My husband and I wanted a quick getaway.....so we decided to visit Pottsville to tour the Yuengling Brewery and stay at "The Maid's Quarters." What a beautiful B&B! Allyson was a real sweetheart! She is an amazing baker and cook! We purchased the Anniversary package which was ready on arrival! Great baked goods, cheeses, crackers, wine and beer! The bed in the "Master Suite" was SO COMFORTABLE! Our first stay at a B&B couldn't have been better!
4,2 en octubre 29, 2012
THe Maid's Quarters' owner, Allison is as welcoming as her B&B, and was full of helpful information for our short stay. Though the property is still a "work in progress" (in her own words), it is most comfortable and we would recommend it for a place to stay in the Pottsville area. Has we stayed longer, we would have enjoyed a lunch at her Tea Room. Allison's innovative cooking was a fabulous treat!
5 en octubre 24, 2012
Our stay at the Maid's Quarters was very nice. Allyson has the B&B decorated so nice and very well maintained. The breakfast's were Great. Allyson is very cordial and we would stay at the Maid's quarters again.
5 en octubre 11, 2012
Allyson runs a beautiful B&B within walking distance of the main draw for so many in Pottsvillle - the Yuengling Brewery. She met us on arrival; introduced us to our lovely suite (third floor - no elevator) and gave us directions & suggestions for the town. After our tour, a quiet afternoon enjoying the suite - with our own little kitchen with coffee/tea/snacks. And the breakfast was fantastic! Two choices for the entree; fresh fruit; baked items. Such a nice stay - thank you so much!
5 en septiembre 27, 2012
This property is a real treasure hidden in the heart of Pottsville. Don't let the rustic appearance fool you. From the moment my husband and I arrived at this B&B we were made welcome by Allyson and had a very nice, relaxing, time. It is so nice to find a local business that is so charming and the food is sooooo good. My husband and I tried Allyson's quiche and egg breakfasts this time around, but next time we will try the pancake and waffle dishes. Since the B&B is located near the heart of the town, we were able to walk most of the places we needed to visit. We always try to patronize local businesses instead of hotel chains, so this property is absolutely perfect. We stayed in the large suite on the third floor which is beautifully decorated with a mix of antiques and modern. The bathroom is excellent with a great claw-foot tub, hot water whenever you need it and very comfortable furniture. There is a refrigerator and Allyson places great snacks in the room (yummy) and throughout the property for guests to nosh on. We also stayed in room 2 on the second floor which is very comfortable with a little sitting room down the hall. The bathroom is shared with room 3 on that floor, but it also is large with a nice shower/tub combination and hot water whenever you need it. I keep mentioning the hot water because this property was built in 1929. It is a perfect mix of old and new, mainly new plumbing mixed with updated infrastructure. The beds in both rooms are extremely comfortable and inviting.

My best friend was going to be visiting PA from Miami, FL and since I live in VA, just a few short hours away, I agreed to drive up and spend a weekend with her. She and her boyfriend were already booked at the B&B and suggested tht I stay there as well. I was Leary at first, but oh my what a pleasant surprise! The house is beautiful and inviting and Allyson is a sweet kind lady who makes you feel as if you were at home. I only spent two days at Ally's sweet Inn but I was as relaxed when I left as if I had been on vacation for a week.

I love The Maid's Quarters Bed & Breakfast! I love the Maid's Quarters Bed and Breakfast in Pottsville, PA! I have stayed there numerous times, and my hostess Allyson Chryst has always been most gracious! The food is fantastic! She makes the best gourmet everything... and I mean everything! From soup to cookies, her food is delicious, healthy, and all homemade! My breakfast has always been incredible while staying with her, and her brunches are the best I have ever attended. I would love to book a tea party sometime soon, since everything at the Inn is always fantastic! You don't want to miss out on this experience. It is just lovely! Allyson is a wonderful hostess, who really understands quality in everything she does. The Inn is super clean, the rooms are gorgeous, and always decorated beautifully, and the ambiance is just magical! There is so much heart and soul put into everything there, I can't wait to go back!

We recently came back to Pottsville for a family reunion. Our stay at the Maids Quarters was just perfect. Allyson, our innkeeper, was so personable, friendly and nothing was too much to ask. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious! And the homemade cookies were fabulous too. We all slept comfortably and she was so accommodating with our schedule. You could tell Allyson really enjoys what she does and she is very good at it, especially cooking those wonderful breakfasts! We couldn't wait to see what the menu would be for the next morning and we stayed there three nights. We would stay there again.

I spent a weekend in Pottsville with my two children (5 and 1.5). We had the huge room on the top floor which was perfect for the four of us. Breakfast was delicious. Allyson accommodated our need to eat early one morning and had some kid friendly breakfast items available for the kids. I recommend highly recommend it.
5 en julio 23, 2012
This is our second time staying at The Maid's Quarters, and again, just loved it! We came to Pottsville for a family reunion and had the second floor. The accomodations were wonderful along with the food and of course Allyson is just the best!

I was contracted to come into town for a wedding (I'm a professional makeup artist) and when clients book rooms for you its always a gamble...but I can't say enough about my clients taste in hospitality or my stay with Allyson. From the moment I arrived and she showed me to the suite, assisted me with my bags, answered ?'s, even whipped up a quick pot of tea before I jetted of to see my client... I felt more comfortable than I had the week before at the Marriott... Something about staying in a place with such warmth & character is like stepping back in time. There was nothing that Allyson didn't think of and her culinary charms are only outmatched by her beautiful smile and charming personality. When I had to leave I was in a bit of a rush and she sent me out the door with a cup of tea and FRESH, WARM Blueberry muffins (and 2 scones that I fell in love with from the morning before)! So...if you are in doubt, don't be...stay and you will want to come back...I'm looking for an excuse to....Lorna Basse www.lornabasse.com

We spent a recent weekend at The Maid's Quarters and were extremely impressed. It exceeded our expectations, and we are already planning our next stay. Allyson, the innkeeper, was personable, considerate, and so kind. I have Celiac Disease and can't have gluten, but this was no problem for Allyson. Of all my domestic/overseas travels, I've never met someone who both understands Celiac Disease and can prepare tasty gluten free food like Allyson. From the yummy cookies to the amazing breakfasts, Allyson was absolutely incredible and very knowledgeable about preparing gluten free food. In fact, her wonderful breakfasts and kind hospitality were a major reason we extended our trip! On top of all that, she allowed our little goldendoodle puppy to stay! The Maid's Quarters was clean, relaxing, and we felt rejuvenated each time we walked through the doors. We will definitely plan to stay at The Maid's Quarters during upcoming visits to Pottsville.
5 en mayo 24, 2012
We traveled to Pottsville recently with my parents and sister and booked all three rooms. Our two night stay at the Maid's Quarters was our first experience at a b&b and now we have no intentions of every staying at hotel again. Allyson was a delightful hostess who made us feel welcome and spoiled us with gourmet breakfasts, cookies, refreshments, great dinner suggestions...I could go on and on. Leaving was the only down side. John and Rosie Summers, North Carolina

Most comfortable bed I ever slept in. We had two rooms staying there with my parents. I suppose sharing a bathroom could get tricky if you dont know everyone, but we made it work. The food was fantastic, and the location was perfect for our tour of Yuengling Brewery. Allyson was pleasant but quiet. We truly felt like we had the house to ourselves! Price cant be beat. We will totally come back here.
4,6 en noviembre 20, 2011
What a great time my wife & I had! On our arrival Allyson met us at the door and from then on made our stay a wonderful experience. We chose the anniversary package and could not have been happier. The room was fabulous & the set up perfect. We inquired about near by eateries and were directed to a perfect location for our needs Our breakfast in the morning- A++. The only regret we had was not being able to extend our stay (we will next time).

both allyson and scott were very good host. The maid suite was very nice. The food was excellent and also the advice on were to go while in town was priceless.
