1 night get away

This was our first bed and breakfast experience. The Inn was very nice and rooms were clean. We enjoyed our stay. Only concern was that the 1777 Americana Inn is on the main street of Ephrata and we could hear the traffic through the entire evening.

Just what we needed!

We were looking for a place to get a much needed long weekend of relaxing away from the daily grind, and 1777 Americana Inn was just what we needed. With a quaint and quiet atmosphere we were able to relax, but the onsite brewpub meant there was never a "well now what do you want to do" moment. The food was delicious, the staff were attentive and inviting, and the owners were great at making you feel at home. And they brew great beer! Can't recommend 1777 Americana Inn enough!

Nice time

My husband and I stayed at the 1777 Americana Inn for a quick weekend get-away. We had the most awesome time there! Since we were only staying overnight, we spent much of it at the brewery located on the grounds. The owner Denise, was present as were her sons tending the bar, and they were all so hospitable and friendly. The craft beers were superb and we made sure to sample them all.The brewery/tavern is small and very friendly.We made new friends while there and had the best time, far exceeding what we were anticipating. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and prepared fresh by Denise and her husband. We hope to return there as it was a fabulous get-away for both of us! Kudos to this Bed and Brewery!!!

Perfect Anniversary Getaway

My husband and I stayed in the Tranquility Cottage for our anniversary and it was perfect! Beautifully decorated, great ammenities, and very private. The main house is beautiful and the Black Forest Brewery had great drinks and good pub food. Innkeepers are very friendly and we will definitely go back again!

We wanted a quick overnight getaway to reduce workweek stress and we got it! Checked into our lovely room and spent a few hours at the attached Black Forest BrewPub enjoying the craft beer and tasty food provided there. Breakfast at the Inn the next morning was wonderful as always.

Awesome getaway

What a find! Our overnight stay at Americana Inn was fantastic! They have an incredible brewery about 30 steps away from your accommodations..couldn't ask for a better experience. The owners were so nice and breakfast just delicious. Great location, beautiful room..can't say enough about this place. Awesome! Worth every penny!!

Love! Love! LOVE! Denise and Bob are the most pleasant people! Their personalities accurately reflect the excellent quality of the rooms and of the overall facility. The rooms have are spacious and have a homey feeling to them. We stayed in Le Boudoir and the jacuzzi is worth every penny! As far as things to do goes, Ephrata is not too far from the Amish country and there are great restaurants right outside of the B&B. If you want to stay in, each room has a television or you can go downstairs and play chess by the fireplace. The breakfast was pretty tasty and there was always great conversation. This was a great experience for us and we can't wait to return!
