I would recommend the Historic Smithton Inn to anyone who loves historic properties, antiques, quilts, and learning about this area. The hosts go out of their way to be accommodating. There is reading material in the Inn which tells the story of the settlement of Ephrata and the general area, which I was interested to read. The breakfast provided was delicious and plentiful, thoughtfully prepared. We enjoyed our stay and will return.

We visit the Lancaster County area a couple of times a year for antique buying trips, and always stay at the Smithton. The location is convenient, the rooms are spacious and clean, and Rebecca and Dave are gracious hosts. Every time we visit, there are new upgrades to the inn, which illustrate their passion for maintaining a welcoming and comfortable destination. Want to sit by a lit fireplace in your room and surf the web? No problem. Want to enjoy a delicious breakfast? These breakfasts with locally sourced ingredients are FAR better than typical restaurant fare, and served in a warm and inviting dining room, rather than an impersonal chain restaurant cavern. There are several great dining options nearby, Amish attractions, craft brewers, and the Adamstown antique strip is a short drive away, as is the Ephrata Cloister, so there is plenty in the area to do. If you want to venture a bit further afield, there are museums and beautiful countryside drives, and even more dining options, from casual to upscale. If you're still having trouble deciding, both Dave and Rebecca are very familiar with the area and can offer suggestions. If you like the personal connection that comes with a great B&B experience, you must visit the Smithton Inn.

Very friendly atmosphere, clean and nicely appointed room with new rain shower. We will stay here again when we are in this area. We highly recommend this b&b. Rebecca was very accommodating for our dietary needs. It was a pleasure to stay here. Sandy and Bob

Rebecca goes above and beyond in making sure the guests have a great visit. This was our first visit to the Inn in over 20 years. The charm is still the same, but the Gallaghers make it awesome. Beds are super comfy. It's nice to get away for the weekend. We will be back.

This was our second Select Registry property, and we had high expectations going into it. We weren't disappointed! Rebecca was a great hostess, and we enjoyed chatting with her following a delicious breakfast each morning (the french toast was the best!). The inn was very nicely decorated and quiet (we could not hear any road noise from the cars driving by), and there was plenty to do nearby. We stayed in the Crimson Dove Suite, and we'd absolutely stay in there again!

Rebecca and Dave love cooking, traveling and entertaining. They love to sail and used to own a 38 foot Beneteau. Ask Dave what it's like to sail UP the Mississippi! Rebecca runs and bikes to stay in shape. She's done 9 marathons, including Big Sur in California. Their eleven year old son, Patrick, will be helping out in the B&B as well... whenever he's not playing baseball that is!
Baked Eggs in a Ham Cup with Cheesy Polenta
This dish is as yummy to look at as it is to eat! It's the first dish we served back in June and it's been a guest favorite ever since.
