The Hurst House allowed us to host our small wedding on their stunning property. My family stayed there and just adored the home as well as the beautiful views!! The wedding went off without a hitch. The accommodations were perfect and more than we expected~ fireplaces and recliners in every room! The breakfasts were delicious and we enjoyed the company of the owners as well. They made us feel like part of the family. We will definitely return to celebrate our anniversaries!!


One of the best!

Impressive!

Hurst House was lovely with a spectacular 360 degree view of surrounding farms, which we hope will stay that way. Although the ratings don't allow me to click it, I would rate Cleanliness as Outstanding. The house was meticulous both inside and outside and the hosts were more than welcoming and generous in allowing our family to have the run of the house. I would gently prod them to take into consideration dietary needs ahead of time.


Best B&B I have been to.

Rich and Bert the sweetest people ever. We were made to feel right at home and every little detail was taken care. The house and surroundings were just amazing. Breakfast was wonderful and it was fun to meet and share stories with the other guest. I can't wait to go back next year. Linda & James Trawick

Looking down on the swan pond was so peaceful and only added to the feel of the the stay. The room was so comfortable and cozy and the Hostess and Host were so friendly and helpful with our visit. We would do it again. Sisters, Terri and Jo

We stayed at the Hurst House on a recent trip to Pennsylvania- we enjoyed every minute of it! What a beautiful home!


Everything I Expected and More

5 on October 05, 2014

Outstanding accommodations, a delicious breakfast served by warm and gracious hosts, a beautiful view of the countryside from private balconies, and a pond with swans! What more could we ask? We loved every minute! The inn on the hilltop can be seen from what seemed like a mile or more away! What a relaxing inn, complete with gathering rooms and game tables on the lower level. Bert and Rich are wonderful, thoughtful hosts who made us feel at home immediately. I can't wait to go back again!
