My husband and I have never stayed or considered staying a bed and breakfast until our recent trip to Pottsville. Now we realize we have been missing out. The rooms were everything and more than what we would expect from a hotel for a better cost! The breakfast was amazing and the little touches she had around the B&B made it all the more unique and special. From the fresh baked cookies in the room to the decanter of wine with small glasses in the lobby for guests to enjoy. If we are in the area again we will definitely come back!
We try to stay at Allyson's Maid's Quarters Bed & Breakfast property whenever we are in Pottsville visiting relatives and friends or doing genealogical research at the library. We try to stay in the room on the top floor which has a small kitchen, sitting room, bathroom and bedroom. The claw foot tub is amazing. We have also stayed in the two rooms on the second floor and they are beautiful also. You share a bathroom, but that is no problem since you'll probably only have two other people staying on that floor at a time. Allyson is one great chef. Her breakfasts are absolutely amazing with all fresh foods. Eggs from a local farmer, fruits and vegetables in season from the area, and your choice of fresh juices, coffee and tea. Allyson has a wonderful imagination and a great palate so anything she cooks tastes great and works on all levels.We particularly enjoy the way the rooms are decorated with many antiques on display. Oh, and lest you think this is a totally old-fashioned property, there is wi-fi throughout, cable TV, and the water pressure is great with plenty of hot water. Try this property, you'll like it.
My husband and I are always very happy when we are able to stay at Allyson's B&B, the Maid's Quarters when we visit relatives in Pottsville. Don't let the old fashioned look fool you, although this is one of the reasons we stay here. There is wi-fi throughout the property, and satellite television if you want it. Allyson is one of the best, I'm going to use the word "chef's" here, that we have encountered in our many stays at B&B's. The rooms are impeccable, with comfortable beds and a very cozy feel. We have stayed in each of the rooms and if we can, we will reserve the room on the top floor, which is self-contained with two sitting rooms, a small kitchenette and a bedroom with air conditioning units throughout, also ceiling fans. The other two rooms are very comfortable and share a bathroom with a shower, but that is really no problem, considering most of the time you would only be sharing it with two other people. There is plenty of hot water and water pressure throughout the property is very good considering it's age. There are staircases to navigate to each floor, but we are older and we don't have any problems. In addition, Allyson is ready to assist anyone who needs help. Allyson has also been able to strike a deal with the company which owns the parking lots across the street, so you have close, secure parking for your car. As I said above, Allyson is a chef and her choices for your breakfast are healthy, taste great, and varied. You'll have fresh eggs, fresh fruit in season, your choice of beverage (juice, tea, milk, or coffee), perhaps a choice of waffles or pancakes and many other delicious items. Allyson is able to obtain all her foodstuffs from local growers and the eggs are from a farmer in the area (we're talking fresh here). If you're looking for a property with an old look, but up to the minute amenities, this is the one.
This B & B was perfect. The atmosphere, cleanliness, food and of course Alison herself. She is so warm and inviting. She sat and talked to me during breakfast. I will always stay there when I got to Pottsville (providing I can get a room)
This is a beautiful charming B&B. From the Décor to the hostess, it is great. Allyson sat and talked to me while I had breakfast. It's so clean and comfortable. I never thought I would like a B&B, but this one is exceptional. I stayed at another once, but there is no comparison. Allyson makes you feel like her friend, someone you have known for a long time. She really makes you feel welcome
My husband and I stayed at The Maid's Quarters over New Year's Eve. It was a return visit for me, and I was just as impressed as the last time. Alyson is the consummate hostess, and we lacked for nothing. The Maid's Quarters has become our favorite place to stay while visiting relatives in the area. We'll be returning!
I am so glad we stayed at this B&B for two lovely days-it was very relaxing and Allyson is very accommodating to any needs you have and the rooms are stocked with everything you could need! Highlights of the stay was the lovely tea selection at breakfast, visiting the Yuengling Factory which was just a quick walk from The Maid's Quarters and the Wooden Keg (an Irish pub, also walking distance) where we had dinner both nights. Would highly recommend this sweet B&B and will most likely be back again!
From the warm welcome to the friendly goodbye, Allyson was a wonderful hostess. Her home was inviting and peaceful with lovely decor and special touches in every corner. Our third floor suite was a true retreat, including tea, coffee and snacks that were an unexpected surprise. If you are in Pottsville, stay at the Maid's Quarters. You won't regret it.
My partner and I had a very enjoyable overnight in Pottsville and The Maid's Quarters B&B. It was exactly as described in previous reviews - clean and welcoming with a great breakfast. We stayed in Room 2 which faced the street. Unfortunately, the constant noise of trucks and cars breaking for a street light outside our window was hard for us to get use to. I would try to book the back room or top floor if we stay again.
The B&B was in town close to all of the attractions. Allyson gave us some good dining tips.I think I wore the Keurig coffee maker out. It was nice to have it available anytime I wanted my coffee.
I traveled to Pottsville for a wedding and the hotel was sold out at the time. I'm so glad it was! Maid's Quarters was a delight and Allyson was very accommodating and kind. The house is adorable and the rooms were very comfortable and clean. Breakfast the next morning was delicious. I highly recommend this B&B.
Delightful stay.alison is a consumant hostess .Our room was delightful very comfortable and every detail thought of..Alison even let me make a green smoothie in her great kitchen! We had a great sleep following our 28 hr journey .
The Maid's quarter is a beautiful b&b. Beds were good,Food delicious, we had the upstairs back bedroom with sitting room very nice. So glad we stayed. If ever back in the area again we would definitely stay again.
The Maid's Quarters is wonderful! Allyson takes very good care of her beautiful home. Our rooms were very clean and very comfortable. Allyson is an outstanding hostess. We are still talking about the delicious breakfasts, and the yummy cookies she put in our rooms. We highly recommend The Maid's Quarters to anyone traveling in the Pottsville, PA area. Or to travel there just for The Maid's Quarters if you love Bed & Breakfasts. We have been to many B & B's, but The Maid's Quarters is our favorite so far. Awesome!
I've stayed at numerous B & B's and Allyson is doing it right. Do not hesitate to book a room. Although part of me doesn't want to share this gem as I don't want to find no vacancy when I return to pottsville pa !
Owner/proprietress Allyson is so sweet and welcoming. She wants your stay to be awesome. The property was spotless. There wasn't a thing we needed or wanted that she didn't make happen. And her French toast is outstanding!
I traveled to area on business and located the Maid's Quarters B&B. It was a very homey place to stay on a business trip. Warm and cozy and REALLY good orange cranberry pancakes! Will definitely stay again if in that area.
My husband and I stayed at the Maids Quarters last August 2014. Allyson was a wonderful host. She made sure we had everything we needed. She informed us about what we could do in the area (Like tour yuengling & son, the oldest brewery in America) and last, but not least made us a wonderful breakfast! Best banana bread ever! She gave us the option of when we wanted to eat breakfast and made sure to accommodate our needs. Holly P.S. I would give the Maid's Quarters 5 stars, but it would not let me...
I travel to Pottsville on business and happened upon this B and B about a month ago. Allyson is the greatest and accomodates any and all requests related to early/late arrival. The rooms are really nice and there are snacks and refreshments throughout the house. There is always a choice for breakfast and it is very filling. Highly recommend.
We decided to stay at the Maid's Quarters Bed and Breakfast after family members strongly recommended it and now we know why. Allyson was a wonderful and gracious host who took a genuine interest in us, always asking how our day went and inquiring about any upcoming plans we may have while in the area. In addition to being an amazing hostess, her culinary abilities were superb. Everything we ate was divine and very filling. Allyson was extremely accommodating and altered breakfast menu items to appease our two young boys, who tend to be picky eaters. The rooms were beautifully decorated in true Victorian flair and were both comfortable and welcoming with freshly baked cookies and other snacks at our disposal. No more hotels for us while visiting the area, as we are very much looking forward to and are already planning a future stay here.
we chose to spend our 3rd anniversary here and couldnt've been happier about our stay. Alyson was the BEST part of Pottsville Pa. the food was wonderful and we absolutely loved the Maid's Suite .
My 8 sisters and I reserved the whole house for the night to kick off our family reunion weekend. We loved the little snacks and drinks in each room and the general home-like feel of the place. Breakfast was absolutely delicious! This just may turn into a yearly event for us! Thanks Allyson!
We were in the Skook to attend a friend's wedding and choose to stay at the Maid's Quarters vice the local hotel. We could not have been more pleased with out decision. Allyson greeted us and made us immediately feel welcome. There were homemade cookies and water in the room as well as little treats throughout the house. The room was both inviting and very comfortable. Breakfast , both mornings, was delicious and the conversation with the other guests in the quaint front room/dining area was delightful. We would ABSOLUTELY stay here again. Allyson is a first class innkeeper.
My husband and I have had the pleasure to stay with Allyson at the Maids Quarters once again this year. It always amazes me that every stay is always better than the last. At this rate, this may be my Heaven. We stayed in the suite which has been re-arranged. Now we are not fans of change but the layout is perfect with just a little extra room to roam. We were again greeted with warm cookies on the table, snacks in the kitchenette and sodas/water in the mini refrigerator. The Keurig is on the counter with a wonderful assortment of kcups. All cups/plates and utensils are provided. In the dining living room you are greeted with an electric fireplace for ambiance and an air conditioner if you prefer it cooler. The ambient lighting is perfect. There is a wonderful day bed if your have a family or larger group and even if your partner is maybe "snoring". The bathroom has a tub and shower with homemade soaps and bath salts, a hairdryer for your convenience, and even cotton balls and q-tips. The littlest extras speak volumes. The king bed is comfy and there is a TV with a DVD player. Bathrobes and extra pillows are in the closet. On the second floor is a library room with DVD's and books for your convenience. Don't skip breakfast. Allyson's creations are to die for. She gives you an option of savory or sweet, fresh fruit, coffee, tea, and always a special treat to wake up your taste buds. My favorite dream is the one where she offers a dinner selection as an option when booking. Don't forget to check her website for weekends when she has a tea brunch. Eat breakfast early and the last brunch seating. You will be set for the day. I seriously can not say anything negative about our stay. We will be back again. She loves her establishment and it shows. Do yourself a favor and give it chance. Book early though as she does book up quick on certain weekends. See you soon Allyson, we miss you already!
