Perfect Pre-Holiday Getaway

5 on November 28, 2014

I am a Ph.D. student and my boyfriend works in food service-- we are very busy people with limited incomes, and hadn't had a proper vacation in 2 years. When we found ourselves with some unexpected time off, we decided to take a spontaneous mini-vacation, and we chose the Amethyst Inn. We stayed in the Amber room (which, yes, is located on the ground floor, right next to the dining room). The room was so beautiful, the bed was comfortable, and the fireplace, massage chair and shower, and whirlpool tub were all WONDERFUL! The location of the room was a non-issue for us-- we had plenty of privacy! We especially appreciated the chocolates left on the bed, the cake stand in the dining room filled with lemon squares, truffles, and snickers brownies, and the coffee and hot chocolate station right outside our room. Breakfast was delicious and substantial, and the folks running the place were so kind. They even sent us home with a bag of local treats to enjoy during our drive! This place is a real gem (get it! hahaha) and we would be lucky to stay here again! Thanks for the relaxing vacation, Amethyst Inn!

Loved it!

It is a beautiful inn! The food in the morning was delicious! The staff was very friendly! Our room was clean and bed was super comfortable. We felt completely valued as customers. Me and my husband will definitely be staying there again. It's definitely a little romantic get away not too far from home :).

Amethyst Inn...Ruby Suite

5 on October 08, 2014

Recently spent 3 nights here and all was perfect. The Ruby Suite is beautiful and very comfortable. Booking via email was quick and easy. I did not partake in the breakfast each morning but the smells and lay out suggests it looked very good. I would stay again in a heartbeat if in the area. With thanks to all the helpful friendly staff.

Innkeeper Response

Jerry and Pam's first stay at a Bed-n-breakfast

What a wonderful time we had at this Inn. The staff treated us as if we were royalty. The place was so quaint and furnished just beautifully. We enjoyed sitting on the porch in the mornings and evenings.We would highly recommend this place to anyone who is staying in northern Lancaster county. Hats off to the awesome staff at the Amethyst Inn.

What a Beauty !

4.4 on August 01, 2014

We travel a lot, notably in the US, and thus we have seen lots of B&Bs. But this is one of the most interesting locations we ever ran into, if not THE interesting one. Firstly, one has to admit, Adamstown is not the center of the world. Thus nobody would expect such a place there. But (and this is secondly) maybe this is the reason why the level of surprise is so high to find such a beauty here. Well, the rooms are very good, large, sort of unique, and sleep is excellent ! And breakfast is outstanding (I mean: outstanding), such a variety, such a taste. And what amount of food. One can hardly cope with these quantities. It is the whole setting, starting with the ancient building, so well maintained, colorful, the gardens, the decoration, so many details, so well matching. Like out of a magazine. And finally great hosts, welcoming, friendly, caring. Thus you may imagine why our assessment ends with a clear recommendation for the Amethyst Inn !

Innkeeper Response
Eberhard and family, We are so pleased to hear that you enjoyed your time at our charming inn as much as we enjoyed having you stay with us! Thank you for letting us be your home away from Germany!! We hope that you will find yourself in Adamstown again throughout your next US travels for some more relaxation and wonderful food at our Amethyst Inn!
