Simply a superb experience

5 on March 02, 2015

As seasoned B&B guests, we can say that the Hurst House ranks among the very best places we've stayed in seven years of marriage. We celebrated our anniversary there this past weekend and the quality of this unique property shone forth so clearly that we were astounded. It is a "new-old" custom-built Victorian that possesses all the modern amenities (and I mean ALL) while retaining an antique and old-fashioned feel. A great place for a variety of travelers: couples, families, business, etc. Facilities are simply A+. Food superb. Friendliness of the innkeepers outstanding. Highly recommend!


Valentine's Weekend 2015

Another great weekend at the Hurst House Bed & Breakfast. Rich and Bert are the best Inn keepers going, they make you feel right at home and part of their family! Their B & B is kept spotless, there is such detail in all the work and surly love that they have put into their home which they openly share with anyone that spends a night or weekend with them. Already looking forward to our next visit which sadly won't be until sometime next year!


Exceptional hospitality with a view!

Our stay at the Hurst House B&B was relaxing, restful and re-energizing! What other reviewers have written is true - this B&B earns and deserves 5 stars. Over the course of many years we have visited many B&B's, this was our best experience. The highlight is the wonderful hospitality of the hosts, Rich and Bert! Having a delicious home made breakfast while engaging in interesting conversation as if we have known each other for years was special and memorable. In addition every room does have a good view! We would highly recommend the Hurst House to anyone interested in experiencing a tasteful, classy and hospitable B&B.

My daughter , son-in-law, my husband and I stayed at the b&b for the first time last month. The rooms, the house and the views were wonderful and Rich and Bert were very friendly and always ready to be of great help! That was our first stay with them but certainly it won't be the last! Thank you, again, Rich and Bert for a wonderful memories! The Wilsons' and the Cunninghams'

A Mansion Overlooking the Amish Countryside

5 on December 19, 2014

The Hurst House is a beautiful mansion set on top of a hill overlooking the Amish countryside. The breakfasts were extremely good. Burt and Rich are extremely helpful with all of the questions that we asked them. The rooms are clean and big. The terrace has a wonderful view of all of the Amish Farms.


Lovely time :)

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!
