Best in Lancaster county

Every room has a view!

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!

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 .

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!

Great Stay

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.
