We have stayed at the amethyst Inn multiple times and have never been disappointed. You have a choice of rooms from you very nice basic B&B room to a suite with porches/balconies to make your stay more relaxing for everyone. The Berman's(Owner's) and there staff are excellent at what they do. They are very helpful and friendly. And the breakfast they serve is excellent. It has gotten even better over the years, we were overwhelmed by the food we got and really did not need lunch the two days we were there. We highly recommend the Inn...

25th Wedding Anniversary

5 on October 28, 2015

We visit PA quite a bit and I wanted to stay at a different place for our 25th wedding anniversary. We stayed in the Amethest Jade room and our room was ready way before we thought it would be. We received a phone call letting us know we could check in any time. Which was very nice. When we arrived at Adamstown we met Cecil. I am a dog lover so it was nice to have one there. The bed and breakfast was very nice and clean. Our room was more than I expected and more. There was chocolate on the bed and sparkling cider for us to celebrate our anniversary. Everyone was very friendly and welcoming. Bed was very comfy slept great. We did not stay for breakfast as we like to go to Shadymaple. But, they did have brownies if you want while your there I would definitely stay there again in the future. Thank you Adamstown for taking care of us and making our stay pleasant.

Innkeeper Response

Stay was a Blast!

I just wanted to say that my stay at the Amethyst Inn was terrific! Taylor was the man who handled my reservation, and also greeted me when I arrived. He went over every detail about my stay at the Inn and made sure that my stay would go without a hitch. He is one great guy and very professional. The house was beautiful and clean, as well as the room itself. The breakfast in the morning was a big surprise. It was a delicious and filling meal. I felt I was in a 5 restaurant and very Victorian. I wish I could have spent another evening at this beautiful B&B. Ted Brown/Hatboro, PA

Innkeeper Response

Weekend Getaway...

4.0 on September 17, 2015

We recently stayed at The Amethyst Inn for a long weekend getaway. The Inn is an absolutely beautiful Victorian inn. It turned out to be a truly memorable weekend...complete with a proposal! The Inn is beautifully decorated and our room (The Topaz Room) was cozy and comfortable. The breakfasts were amazing and delicious...we were actually so full after breakfast each day that we didn't have to eat again till dinner! The innkeepers were so friendly and helpful...providing us with restaurant suggestions, as well as, suggestions for sights to see while we were in the area. (We also loved hearing the history of how they bought and renovated the Inn.) Each day a little gift was left on our bed for us which was so sweet. They also had cookies and an assortment of teas and coffees for us, in the dining room, that we could help ourselves to at any time. We would highly recommend The Amethyst Inn for your weekend getaway. It is very centrally located and is within very easy driving distance to many Lancaster and Berks County sites.

Innkeeper Response
