I set my parents up with reservation's for St. Valentines Day weekend. When they came home, they could not stop bragging about the amazing time and the treatment they recieved. Thank you so much for spoiling my parents. I will be coming to see this beautiful place for myself soon.

The Hiestand House is everything we wanted in a B&B, and more. Pam and Dallas are terrific hosts - the breakfasts were delicious, the home is quiet and welcoming. After a two-night stay, we were refreshed and well rested. We recommend the BF Hiestand House - you won't be disappointed.

My wife and I stayed t the BF Hiestand February 6th-8th and had a wonderful time. Pam and Dallas were wonderful hosts and the breakfast was amazing. We are hoping to book another stay during the summer because there seems to be more activities open then during the winter months. I would definitely recommend their B&B to anyone.

After the hustle and bustle of the holidays my husband and I needed a few days of peace and serenity. We chose the Suite as we always do if its available, its our personal favorite, my husband likes the separate TV room and I love the large jacuzzi. When you walk into the B&B, whether its your first time or your 7th as it was for us, and as it will be for each and every return trip, you are warmly greeted by Pam and Dallas the Innkeepers as well as Quincy their dog. Pam will ask if you have any dietary restrictions, as well as what time you would like to eat breakfast, which I might add not all B&B's do. Most B&B's (and I have been to many) usually tell you what time breakfast is and give you a short time frame; this sets BF Hiestand House apart from the others. Pam will show you to your room, show you how to use the TV, DVR, etc., ask if you need anything, need directions, have questions or concerns and then leave you to get settled. The suite comes with a small refrigerator stocked with soda, both regular and diet and water, and there is more water in the refrigerator in the hall. If you need ideas for a place to eat, a place to visit or just to shop Pam is always ready to make suggestions and even give you a map and mark the route for you. The beds and bedding are amazing, the sheets are the softest ever and you just get lost in the tranquility of the comfort. The breakfasts are second to none, every day is different and oh so delicious and there is always plenty of juice, coffee and so many teas that you will have a hard time choosing one. You will never be disappointed staying at BF Hiestand House, trust me, they know what they are doing and they do it well. Their warmth and hospitality, along with the cooking and baking, yes Pam makes all her own muffins, are second to none!

We spent just the one evening here, however the room and hosts were excellent. Our hosts helped us find a nice place to eat and in the morning pointed us in the right direction for some hiking trails. The breakfast they made up was extra delicious. All and all we would definitely come back. Pam and Dallas are great hosts. My only complaint is that I was hoping for a little more rural of an environment, whereas this B&B is located more in a historic downtown area.

Loved being taken care of instead of being the caretaker. Breakfast was wonderful. Pam really goes all out for breakfast.Room was elegant with a comfortable bed with very nice sheets and blankets. Decor was very nice and having a Anniversary cake waiting for us when we walked into the room was a very nice touch. Pam held up my husband downstairs so I could surprise him with rose petals on the bed and a basket with champagne and chocolates and electric tea lights around the room.He absolutely loved it. Thank you Pam. Dallas took us on a vineyard tour of four vineyards. He was funny and charming and engaged us with conversation the whole time. We had a good time with him.Loved all the goodies we received on the second vineyard provided by Dallas. They had plenty of good suggestions of places to go and even offered to make reservations for us and drive us to and from different places. We felt taken care of by this lovely couple and would definitely go back and suggest everyone give it a try. Place was very clean and decor was very nice.

My newlywed wife and I very much enjoyed our stay! The Bed and Breakfast is lovely. They were undergoing some repairs while we were there, but we were never disturbed. Dallas and Pam are just the friendliest people you could ever meet! Dallas introduced me to a local beer, and gave us a gift card for a nearby restaurant. We hope to visit again soon.

My husband & I live in the Phila area and wanted to get away, stay local to celebrate our 10th anniversary. Our visit here by far has been better than any of the many B&B's we have been to. Pam & Dallas hospitality is superior. Pampering and feeling right at home. They have paid special attention to the smallest details to make our stay the best ever. Excellent customer service and décor and cleanliness impeccable! Pam went out of hear way to make and serve a gluten free breakfast that was delicious! 5 STARS! And, enjoy your stay here you made the right choice! Candy & Freddie Pack
