Wish I had booked more nights!

I will recommend the Hurst House to anyone and everyone. It is so beautiful and we felt so welcome the moment we arrived. It was our first time at a bed and breakfast. Now I am spoiled. We stayed at a couple of other B&Bs on our trip and none were as welcoming. The food was also spectacular. I want to go back. I wish it weren't so far away from my home in Kansas. :-)


Best B & B in Lancaster County, PA!

5 on July 07, 2014

Awesome Stay! Great hosts (Rich & Bert)...Great breakfast, views, rooms are beautiful, and plenty of things to do inside the house and outside...LOVE LOVE LOVE HURST HOUSE! :)


Restorative and Relaxing

5 on July 03, 2014

To us, Hurst House was a little bit of magic. We stayed in the Victorian Rose room and it was so calming and relaxing. The view was outstanding and it was a delight to spend quiet moments drinking coffee and reading on the balcony that went with our room. Although we loved the front view, the back of the house, with the pond, was even more enchanting. One night at dusk, we sat in the lovely little gazebo and enjoyed the lovely sight of the swans gliding over the water's surface. We found it interesting to listen to the Pennsylvania Dutch language of some boys swimming nearby. The only other sound we heard was the croaking of frogs in the pond. As we went back to our room, there was a veritable shower of tiny twinkling lights from fireflies on the hillside. Thank you, Bert and Rich, for these wonderful memories.


Outstanding B&B

5 on July 03, 2014

We just completed our stay in the Golden Pond and the Victorian Rose in late June and had a most relaxing and wonderful time at the Hurst House. It is truly a magnificent B&B with outstanding hospitality, cleanliness and service. Rich & Bert are gracious hosts who do everything possible to make staying at Hurst House a comfortable and memorable experience. We strongly recommend it, not only for the house itself, but also for the tremendous views and overall ambience in and around the property.


Our stay at the Hurst House B&B

5 on June 30, 2014

We stayed at the Hurst House on June 17, 2014 and had a great experience. The B&B's location, on top of a hill, gives a breathtaking panorama of the PA Dutch countryside, dotted with stately farms. The house is magnificent and Rich and Bert spared no expense in outfitting this finely crafted home, complete with an elevator that can access the lodging floors. Our room was large and included a sitting area along with a very comfortable King bed and adjacent balcony. The nicely landscaped back patio, replete with a small lake below you, serves as an oasis where you can watch the swans placidly swimming or some of the local children enjoying a fun time in the water. This is definitely a property not to be missed if your travels take you to the Lancaster PA area. This ranks as one of the best B&B's that we have ever stayed at. The innkeeper, Rich, (Bert was away during our stay) was very entertaining and made us feel as though we were family and not just paying guests. His knowledge of the locale and people made for interesting conversation at breakfast. We learned a lot about the Amish and Mennonites that reside and work in the community. We would definitely stay at this property again if we return to this part of the country. Vic & Nancy Caranna


A beautiful setting

4.4 on June 03, 2014

This bed and breakfast sits up on a hill surrounded by Amish and Mennonite farmland. We had a wonderful view from the Swan Lake room balcony. We enjoyed the quiet, peaceful setting and watching the swans swim on the lake. Rich and Bert were great hosts and made us feel at home.


"A Great Place to Stay"

Wonderful Family Experience

5 on May 13, 2014

My family and I stayed here an early weekend in May, 2014 for my brother's college graduation, and we had such a pleasant experience! We were a large group of 11 and we were fortunate enough to have the whole place to ourselves. We truly enjoyed the house, which is beautifully decorated and comfortably appointed. Each room has a lovely balcony and a wonderful view of amish country in Lancaster, PA as it sits on top of a hill. Every time we would drive up the hill to the house, it felt like a special place. Bert, our host, was very accommodating and wonderful to me and my family. She made us breakfast every morning, and helped us plan our day with sights to see and other suggestions. We were able to use the large basement which has a pool table, ping pong table and other games and activities, great for a family. The house is situated wonderfully on a swam lake, with two resident swans, a Wendy house and Gazebo. A picturesque place with a wonderful host!


Wonderful Place to Stay!!!!

We have been to the Hurst House three times so far. The house is absolutely gorgeous with all the beautiful details inside and out. There is a lake with swans and pools of gold fish to enjoy. The grounds are just beautiful and the view of the Amish countryside is amazing. Rich and Bert makes you feel like part of the family and are so friendly and attentive. Breakfast is just awesome!!


Hurst House Bed & Breakfast Stay in April 2014

5 on April 22, 2014

Our family of 4 stayed in Hurst House Bed & Breakfast in Gold Pond room in April 2014 for 2 nights while vising Amish county. It was really outstanding experience: the property is huge and contains a house and a lake with swans. The house inside is like a museum with superior attention to every detail. Our room overlooked the lake and Amish land! We really enjoyed our stay and the food was delicious! Highly recommend! Mike from Vienna, VA
