We're a beautiful restored mansion on the best street in town--loads of charm with high tech amenities and a great location! Plus: free offstreet parking, four fireplaces when it's cold, and great outdoor patio and swimming pool when it's not! Walk to downtown shopping and restaurants, one mile or less from Sands Casino, Steelstacks, Lehigh University and Moravian College.

Charming B&B

5 on December 06, 2014

The first time we walked into the Morningstar we were pleasantly greeted by Virginia and Tim which made us feel like family. This charming B&B really embraces the warmth and hospitality you would hope to find in a small christmas town. Virginia decorates the sitting rooms in great detail for the holidays giving it the feeling of home. There are homemade baked goods every evening and freshly made breakfasts every morning. Everything was so wonderful that we came back again to experience Christmas in Bethlehem. If you want to experience an old fashion Christmas or you just want to stay at home away from home I highly recommend the Morningstar. Thank you Virginia and Tim for an amazing stay.

B&B Forever

This was our first stay at a B&B and it was great. The home is beautiful, the breakfast is delicious and the innkeepers are friendly and welcoming. This visit opened our eyes to a form of hospitality we unfortunately over looked. Because of our stay at Morning Star my husband and I celebrate each anniversary at a B&B.

Gorgeous House, Wonderful Food

4.6 on May 01, 2014

This was our first stay in a B&B and it was wonderful. Virginia is a pastry chef so there's amazing cookies all the time. The food is delicious and the house very comfortable and there are things to do (play pool, games, cards) if you want to relax inside. We had a gift card and that didn't cause any trouble or hassle. Very well located to walk downtown or to the casino. We would recommend to anyone!

Best bed and breakfast ever

5 on August 31, 2013

We really enjoyed our stay at Morningstar, every detail to perfection. The room was super clean and comfortable, very quiet and peaceful and beautifully decorated. The breakfast was superb, they even roast their own coffe beans! We will definitely be back for another stay, there is a lot to do and see in Bethlehem. Tim and Virginia are lovely gracious hosts, and their place shows it all. We give five stars!
