Beautiful, Beautiful and Beautiful!!!

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Hertzog Homestead B&B for a weekend in May. I bought the 2 night stay on Living Social. The suite was spacious and clean and the furnishing were beautiful. Right outside our patio door was an amazing view of the beautiful countryside of Ephrata, Pa. not to mention our hot tub, which we used. The breakfast was served in your room and the homemade muffins, pies and breads are made right on the premises. There is soda, water and a Keurig coffee machine in your room for your convenience. I have nothing but, praise for this wonderful little b&b. Bravo Kristen and Scott!


A romantic get a way

We enjoyed every minute of our stay. The suite was very pretty and so clean, I could have stayed there for a month, so comfortable and warm. The private breakfast was a pleasant change, giving us time to relax, talk and hang out in our bathrobes, we loved it. The owners are wonderful and available for any need you may have. It is located in the middle of all the local attractions. Thank you Kristen and Scott for your Hospitality!!! Ann & Chuck from Jersey, we will see you again.

As we arrived at Herzog Homestead Bed and Breakfast we were met by Scott Herzog, Scott informed us about the interesting history of the family 40 acre farm and escorted us to the Metzler Suite we stayed in. The room was clean, comfortable and well furnished with all the amenities of an historical site. The morning breakfast was our favorite as we watched the Amish horse and buggies pass by the suites' breakfast nook. The farm was a great location for antique shopping that was close by. If your interest is Amish quilts and an excellent country buffet check out the local leaflets and literature inside the suite or ask Scott or Kristen. We highly recommend a stay at the Herzog Homestead Bed & Breakfast.


Great time at the Hertzog.

We love staying at The Hertzog Homestead! This was our first time staying in their new carriage house and it was even better than the main house. The room was large and clean and was beautifully furnished. As a quilter, I especially appreciated the Amish made quilts. We enjoy eating breakfast in our own room, rather than at a communal table. We are looking forward to our next visit!


Went for a quick quiet getaway

The breakfast in your room was a great idea and so nice for a romantic getaway. The food was absouletly delicious!! Room was clean linens were great towels fluffy and soft great robes to use. Wish I would have realized that the Mertozg did not have any live TV We had a snow while were there and we could not follow the weather for the storm.But the free WiFi did help us track the weather. Would go back!!

My wife and I had a great relaxing time at The Hertzog Homestead Bed and Breakfast. The service was very personal and professional. The room was clean and comfortable.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for the kind words! I am always looking to improve our business. Your stay was under a Living Social deal where you stayed for half price. Just curious as to why you didn't find value in this? We have always prided our establishment on cleanliness and will continue to do so. Our speciality is private breakfasts, served in the seclusion of your own room, as stated on our site. We sincerely hope you will stay with us again!


What a find!

Hertzgog went above and beyond

Kristen was great. Always accessible by text. Room was immaculate. Mid day cleaning. Breakfast prepared the day before and a quick pop in the microwave to eat when you're ready. Cozy breakfast time in your room. Fresh fruit and apple juice and snacks always restocked. Very pleasant experience.


Hidden Gem

My husband and I stayed at the Hertzog Homestead Ephrata, PA April 12th through the 14th, 2016. We have stayed in many B&B's and this one is far and away the best ever. Our hosts were very gracious and helpful. We stayed in the Hertzog Suite in the new carriage house. It was beautifully decorated and spotlesd. As part of our deal th r re was a lovely welcome basket with wine, chocalate, chips and homemade lotion. The Suite had a private patio and hot tub. The view is outstanding. The homemade breakfasts are made by Elva and delivered to your room along with scrumptious homemade pastries the night before with instructions for microwaving. Everything was delicious. It is only a short drive to Lancaster and Intercourse so there is plenty to do. I can't wait to go back again. Thanks Kristen, Scott and Elva.
