Innkeeper Robert was gracious, funny and great with a story at breakfast. We stayed 2 nights at the cottage which was very clean and well furnished. Breakfast both mornings was delicious! Hot coffee or tea being available all day was a great perk, not to mention fresh baked cookies all day. Located close to all of the area attractions was also a perk!! If you have not made plans for your stay, ask Robert. He has a wealth of knowledge of what to see or steer clear of. We will definitely be back!!
Stayed 2 nights for our anniversary, new to B&Bs. Robert very warm, gracious host. Provided plenty of info, including a marked map,about area and dinner restaurants. The breakfast were wonderful, even better because Robert entertained us with funny stories. Room decor is lovely, several activity rooms available and kitchen access 24 hours/day for snacks, homemade cookies and beverages. Comfy bed, great A/C and our room had a marvelous double shower. There was a jigsaw puzzle in progress that all guests could participate in, a nice way to meet the other guests. The grounds were lovely to spend some time outside relaxing. All in all, a great place to stay, will stay again when in the area. Thanks, Robert
We stayed here while attending a concert in Lancaster PA. Cathy was a great hostess. The house is beautiful with a lot of character. Was a great overnight with a good breakfast the following morning.
Excellent spot for our recent gals mini-retreat! Robert is the best - accommodating, entertaining, and prepares and serves a mean breakfast! Very neat and clean rooms with the softest sheets and pillows in the world. HIGHLY recommend any Lancaster traveler stop here to relax and reboot!
We had a wonderful time at After Eight. Robert was a great host and served us delicious breakfasts each morning. He also made sure my husband who has to have gluten-free due to Celiac had a delicious breakfast ! Our room was lovely and roomy. Robert's knowledge of the area was also terrific!
We stayed two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time in the heart of Amish country. Robert was the consummate host with good suggestions for attractions and best restaurants in the area, as well as an entertaining raconteur at breakfast. Breakfast itself was delicious and if there is anything with Chantilly cream on it you are in for a treat. The rooms are well appointed and spotlessly clean. Located on Rt 30, you are within a short drive of Lancaster, Strasburg, Bird in Hand and Intercourse. Driving anywhere in the countryside is an attraction in itself if you are into bucolic scenery and life as it was 150 years ago.
We spent 3 nights at After Eight for a getaway for our 55th wedding anniversary. The Innkeeper, Robert, is a very charming and personable person. He goes out of his way to make guests as comfortable as possible. The breakfasts he makes are beyond delicious. He tells stories at breakfast and engages everyone in conversation. We stayed in one of the cottages. The décor is great, and the beds and bedding very comfortable. There are 2 living rooms in the House with puzzles and games Everyone may enjoy. The grounds are lovely, with seating through out. We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay. We will return. Sandy & Bob Osiecki, Bethlehem, PA
My husband and I stayed here from July 30 - August 2, 2016. Robert was a great host and tells very funny stories. He made us feel very welcome. The rooms were very comfortable and very clean. Looking forward to returning again!
My wife and I stayed at the Creekside Inn for three nights, and we had a wonderful time Cathy & Dennis, the owners, were terrific hosts and they really made us feel at home. By the time we left, they felt like old friends. Breakfast each morning was delicious (especially the cinnamon bread french toast), and the room was delightful. Cathy & Dennis also took time to draw out a map and give us recommendations on things to see and do while we were in the area. We're already planning our trip back.
my husband and I stayed there july 12-14th. Robert was so helpful he was a great host. T the woman who was there on the 13th was great too. she was funny. the rooms were great, breakfast was fab. the other guests were friendly we sat on the patio and talked the grounds outside were beautiful and the view was refreshing. I would def stay there again.
Three friends and I were traveling through the Amish Country and randomly selected this B&B as it could accommodate four singles; not just couples. We were greeted in a warm, welcoming manner that immediately told us we'd made a good choice. For a couple the room would have been ideal; for four individuals it was a tad small - but then, we could have gotten two rooms. The dining area was pristine, and the midnight selections excellent. The accessibility to the Amish Country was perfect. The garden and outside dining option was wonderful. We all travel extensively and had one other B&B on our trip; which was just standard fare. We would all highly recommend After Eight for any traveler going this direction. The only thing is the outside porch was recently painted brown and gives a rather drab first impression - white would be a great idea. :-)
Laugh hysterically while eating a five star breakfast listening to Robert's stories. Don't walk by the cookies without grabbing a few. Located within minutes of anything you might want to do. Meet new folks while eating, unlike a hotel or motel. Definitely going to stay there again. Be sure to buy the cookbook. Bill and Donna
This bed and breakfast was the most pleasant one I have stayed at. The owner is delightful. The breakfast were spectacular. I would go back there just to eat! Everyone staying there were very friendly. Anxious to go back again and again!!
We really enjoyed out stay at After Eight. Our rooms were exceedingly clean. We had stayed in the area before; so we knew our way around a bit. However, Robert told us of some places we hadn't seen. Our breakfasts were not only delicious but also beautiful to look at. You eat with your eyes first worked in this case. I would not hesitate to recommend After Eight to anyone; and I would stay there again if we ever make it out that way again. Thanks, Robert, for your attention to detail. I loved just sitting on the porch and enjoying the garden! -Dom and Ginny
We called because of arriving late and Robert graciously said he would meet us after our Sight and Sound show to check-in. Room was very nice and good WiFi. Breakfast was very good and referral for dinner were excellent. He has information and menus on all the major restaurants in area. Enjoyed working on the jigsaw puzzle in the sitting room. I would rate outstanding but this website will not allow when I click on outstanding. We will go back again.
This was our second visit (celebrating our 60th wedding anniversary), and we would definitely hope to come again. We have stayed in dozens of B&B's over the years, and After Eight is one of the best.
This was our first time in Lancaster and at a Bed and Breakfast. We really did not know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. Clean, quite, hospitable, unassuming, really true. You want to relax? Pull up a chair and sit on the porch. Converse with Robert and others. Great advice on dinner. Breakfast generous and delicious. Will do it again for sure. Imad and Loubna
Robert, our host, had very tastefully and elegantly decorated our bedroom. And yet, it's atmosphere was very relaxing and homey, not at all like a museum. His downstairs sitting rooms also were a great place to read in the evening. He has paid attention to so many details, without providing frilly extras that would command a premium we would not have wanted to pay. The pricing was such a good bargain for this special time my wife and I shared exploring the Amish and Mennonite lands and culture.
Great B&B, All stone gorgeous building, excellent rooms, great breakfast. The Innkeepers Cathy and Dennis are great people. The house is in the heart of Amish Country close to all shopping and dining.
We have been travelling for two+ months and Creekside was by far our best B&B experience so far. Cathy and Dennis have set the bar high. We were made to feel like family from the minute we walked rough the door. All their helpful advice on local sites was invaluable and the location of their home is perfect for seeing everything in the area. The breakfasts were among the best we've had and we are so appreciative of our time spent in their home.
A peaceful place to stay in beautiful Amish country. I felt pampered and spoiled having someone fix breakfast for me. The guestrooms were lovely with comfortable beds. Robert was helpful with suggestions.I would definitely recommend it to others.
Dennis and Cathy are wonderful hosts. We were greeted at the door by Dennis, given a historical tour of the property then escorted to our room. The Cameo Room had a canopy bed with a soft comfy mattress covered with a locally made quilt, a fireplace, flat screen TV, and internet access. The bathroom was small but very adequate for a pair of weary travellers. We slept like babies and awoke to the sound of horse drawn buggies moving down Leacock Road. Morning began with tasty blueberry french toast served with locally produced pork roll and a strawberry/granola fruit bowl accented with fresh local vanilla yogurt. We felt that they rolled out the red carpet and plan on returning when we can use the fireplace. Thanks Dennis & Cathy for a wonderful stay.
Great choice! Everything we wanted for our visit to the area, clean and comfortable with delicious breakfast and a wonderful host. Close to shopping and restaurants and many of the nearby attractions. Property is well maintained and a great setting. Mike & Kathy K. Colorado
After discovering After Eight by accident two years ago, we came back this year and brought friends. We like the quaint atmosphere and Robert's attention to detail, even in suggesting touring and dining opportunities. The taste and presentation of the breakfasts he serves are lovely. We hope to make this an annual retreat.
It has been 20 years since my wife and I stayed at the Creekside Inn B&B and Kathy and Dennis are still making their home a special place to unwind and relax. An absolutely beautiful historical location (ask about the George Washington connection) that is as charming as the hosts. My only regret is I waited 20 years to return...
After Eight is one of the best B&B's, from the beautifully appointed rooms to the always delicious breakfast. It makes you feel fortunate that you found this gem. Robert is the perfect host, he cares about every detail and goes out of his way to help make it the best place to stay. We love it and will continue to come as often as we can.
