Another Wonderful Stay!

5 on July 21, 2014

We recently stayed at the Amethyst Inn and I HAD to write a review. We stayed 3 years ago for our babymoon and stayed in the Ruby Suite, the largest room. This time, we actually stayed in the smallest room, the Topaz room and I was worried that it would be a let down from staying in the most luxurious room, but it was NOT! The room was smaller than the others, but it was wonderful! There were tube tvs when I came last time, but they now have flat screens. The room has anything you may need. The 2-person whirlpool was very relaxing. There were other people in the inn, but we rarely heard them. Breakfast was wonderful! I kept taking pictures. The owners are hilarious and friendly. The other guests were also friendly. There are snacks upon arrival, snacks, coffee, and tea available all day and snacks when you leave. And did I mention the breakfast??? I have nothing at all bad to say about this place. I recommend this to anyone visiting the Adamstown area who wants the B&B experience. Peaceful and beautiful. We will certainly be back!


Great B & B

Very nice and relaxing experience. Tom, Wanda and the rest of the staff are wonderful hosts.


Wonderful getaway!

My husband and I came to the Inn for a much needed "break from it all". The staff was warm and welcoming, the food was wonderful (they even sent me home with a recipie I asked about b/c I knew my children would love it Now it is my favorite make ahead breakfast for busy school mornings!)!) The Inn just exudes peace and serenity, from the peaceful colors to the beautiful furnishings. We stayed in the Ruby Suite, which was wonderful. I was initially a little concerned that it was on the first floor and so close to the main entrance, but we heard very little and it was a non-issue. We enjoyed our stay very much and plan to make it an annual event.


Extremely pleased, perfect couple's getaway

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at the Amethyst Inn in February. Our reason for the trip was to celebrate my birthday, and with a 7 month old baby at home, my fiancee and I hardly get any alone time to enjoy each other's company and relax. We booked the Amber Room and lucked out because the Inn was running a special offering your second night at 50% off! That was a great bonus! The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating and the Inn itself is very chich and beautifully decorated. The room was fabulous and far exceeded my expectations! The decor was extremely warm and inviting, and included beautiful antique pieces and artwork. The jacuzzi tub and european massage shower were incredible, we were able to relax in the jacuzzi tub with a glass of wine and watch the fireplace going. I loved the fact that the room was chic and had so much charm and history behind it, yet it didn't feel like you were spending the night at your Grandmother's house! The room had modern upgrades (jacuzzi tub, massage shower, electric fireplace, etc.) and was extremely clean. Breakfast was served at 8am each day and I assumed it would be buffet style but to my surprise, the staff served you your breakfast at your own private table. The food was extraordinary!! Home made muffins, chicken sausage in a spicy mango glaze, fresh fruit cup, croissants, sausage meatballs, all incredible! We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast, and the staff made sure you left with a full stomach! They were very helpful in assisting us with brochures and ideas of places to check out in the area. We went to Stoudt's brewery (about 5 min from the Inn) and checked out a bunch of antique shops. We had a great time and we're so grateful for the time we had to reconnect and relax in such a beautiful place. I highly recommend the Amethyst Inn!

Romantic Before Valentine's Day Getaway

5 on February 13, 2013

We stayed at this lovely warm inn around last Valentine's day. The room was delightful, fresh, clean, and perfect for our needs. The innkeepers were very very friendly, helpful, and generous! We had a wonderful relaxing two days in this charming beautifully painted inn, with just the perfect area full of antiques surrounding it! The breakfasts were sublime! It was a fantastic getaway!


Great first experience

4.4 on February 27, 2012

My husband and I just returned from celebrating our anniversary at the Amethyst Inn. From the moment we entered the house, we felt welcomed. Though the inn is one street over from the main highway, the surroundings were quiet. We stayed in the Amber Room which is one of two guest rooms on the first floor. It's located directly off the dining room, just at the bottom of the staircase, and next to the "available at all hours Keurig coffee maker, water cooler and refrigerator". Even so, disruptions and noise from other guests coming and going were minimal. The room itself was comfortable and spacious, with plenty of storage space for clothing and personal items, although the bathroom only had one small shelf above the sink which made it a little cramped for toiletry items. The bed was comfortable and the Jacuzzi very relaxing. There were nice, personal touches, such as a bottle of sparkling cider and some chocolates to help us celebrate our anniversary, and little gifts left on the bed for us for when we got back to the room after being out for the day. The breakfasts were amazing! Tom, though he took wonderful care of the guests in the dining room, gave credit where credit was due and duly noted that it was Wanda and the staff who made the delicious fruit cups, biscuits, breads, and casseroles that were served. Wanda, Jean and Tom looked after us and took care that we'd had our fill. The Inn is such a warm, inviting place to return to after a day of shopping, touring or "antiquing". Thank you for making us feel at home. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and hope to make a return trip some time later in the year.
