Beautiful Bed and Breakfast!

4.6 on October 14, 2014

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!


Beautiful!

We stayed here during our recent vacation and it was amazing. This was the first b&b either of us had stayed at and I think it will be extremely hard to find a more beautiful place to stay. Everything here was great, the house, food, room, views, and especially Bert and Rich!


Unexpected highlight of our trip!

Beautiful B&B inside and out with superb hosts who think of everything big and small. Wonderful freshly prepared food. Didn't want to leave and can't want to return!

A warm welcome, luxurious accommodation with great attention to detail and a breakfast experience like no other.


A must stay

This is the best B&B we have stayed (doing B&B for more than 35 years). Location is outstanding, service could not be better, and views have to be seen to appreciate. The hosts are great and make you feel like part of the family.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words.


You have found a place to stay- look no further

As we were traveling throughout the cornfields during our visit to the Pennsylvania Dutch area, my husband noticed a "castle" up on a hillside. Sure enough it was The Hurst House. The Inn keepers, Rich and his wife, Bert were very welcoming. The house had amazing views and was immaculate! It had a rec room with a pool and ping pong table, private balconies off your room, and did I mention the farm land views! Lol Bert is extremely organized with a gathering room for guests that had a binder with restaurant options, many pamphlets for area attractions and movies to watch in your own room( good rainy day choice). The house is stunning with high ceilings, custom doors and extra special touches wherever you look. The location was nice and a short drive to many other towns. We didn't realize how close all the towns really are together. Breakfast started with a fresh fruit cup and a small mixture of other breakfast items. It's not for those with a big appetite, but it's enough. I highly recommend The Hurst house. It is stunning. Of note: not only can you lock your room, but the house is kept locked as well. It was a nice sense of security


BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Wow, is all I can say! Rich & Bert are the best host's ever! We had a wonderful stay & they made us feel so welcome. We had the most relaxing couple of days & enjoyed their beautiful home so much. We would highly recommend this B & B to anyone wanting a relaxing & beautiful place to stay.


Guaranteed to Please

We just arrived back home in upstate NY. We have stayed at the Hurst House 3 times now and will continue to go there every year because it is the most relaxing place with the best hosts you could ever want! The views are breathtaking and each bedroom is lovely. It is about 10-15 min from most of Lancaster's attractions. We let our GPS find the route around the back country roads and enjoyed the clean farmlands and homes with beautiful flowers. This is a B&B that is guaranteed to please everyone.
