We love the location of this B&B high on a hill overlooking NE Lancaster County with a 360 degree of the beautiful surroundings. You will feel right at home with these great hosts and every room in the house is a place of peace and comfort.

Stayed at this Beautiful B&B in November 2015. Stunning views over the picturesque country side. Rich and Bert Hurst were very welcoming and charming hosts. The house is as beautiful as in the pictures. The house is huge and in the evenings we made use of the 'gathering room' for a coffee before bed. A great place to stay and plenty to do and see. The covered bridges are gorgeous and I really enjoyed learning about the Amish way of life.

I went here with my mom last summer and absolutely loved it!!! Bert and Rich are amazing, the food was delicious, and the place is awesome! I took my grandmother there next summer and was so excited to go back! It was just as good the second time, and both my mom and grandmother thought the same!!

This bed and breakfast is stunning! We got there after dark and it was all lighted up and by day you get gorgeous views of the flower beds and pond as well as the country side since the B&B is ona hill. Rooms were immaculately clean and beautiful. The service was outstanding.

If you want to stay at an inn that has absolutely breathtaking views, beautiful rooms, outstanding breakfasts, and the most friendliest and warm hearted innkeepers, you must stay at the Hurst House! Our favorite!!

We had never been to this part of the United States. Our hosts were extremely helpful is directing us to many interesting events and locations. My wife was ecstatic about the quaint homes and the Amish horse drawn buggies. The Hurst House is a magnificently designed and maintained bed and breakfast. Bert and Rich made us feel like family, but still catered to our wants. I was happy that their descriptions of their home were very accurate. BTW: I do not recommend going to the Hershey chocolate venues because the little enjoyment we had did not make up for the effort it took to get there. However, I do recommend going to Gettysburg and taking the two hour bus tour.
