What an excellent view of Lancaster County! We actually live not very far from the Hurst House B & B and thought it would be a nice place for a one night getaway. We were not disappointed and we'd love to go back again! We found it to be a peaceful and restful place as well as very clean, lovely decor, wonderful breakfast, and the inn keepers (the owners) very hospitable. We couldn't have asked for more!
Thank you for taking time to write a great review. Hope to see you again. Bert & Rich

My fiance and I stayed her over the weekend of Valentines Day, this is the third year in a row we stayed here for that weekend. You will not find a more beautiful home, or more wonderful and friendly hosts. The view from the rooms are spectacular, and the food served is delicious. I highly recommend staying there for any reason. I am going to be booking another stay soon, and bring friend with us. You will not be disappointed .
Thank you for taking the time to write a great review. We're looking forward to your next visit with The Hurst House.

My husband and I traveled with friends to this wonderful B&B. We stayed two nights and enjoyed every minute! Rich and Bert were so welcoming and made us feel like we were so special. We have been to many, many B&B's and this is at the top of our list. Don't hesitate to stay here because we guarantee you will love it!

My wife and I stayed for a weekend here to celebrate our anniversary. We had a wonderful time. It is an absolutely beautiful place, the pictures are spot on. It is within 30 minutes of almost anything including Lancaster city. The owners served a wonderful breakfast and were incredible welcoming and hospitable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend it.
