We returned once again to After Eight Bed & Breakfast, and as at our previous stay it still rates as the best Bed & Breakfast we ever experienced. We now feel that After Eight Bed & Breakfast is our second home when we visit this area!

my wife and I would just have to repeat all of the wonderful reviews to cover our feelings for Robert and his B&B. Words alone can't do the experience justice. The best advice we can give is "go there". You'll wish you had planned a longer stay. Ours was Sept. 12-14. Mickey & Sandy Conlee

Mr Hall was a great host. Explained everything upon arrival. The whole house was opened to us. The breakfasts were delicious and extremely comfortable atmosphere. I definite come back to place.

Friendly and charming host
5 on September 08, 2016
The room was very clean, the breakfast was great, and Robert, our host, was fabulous. If you ever want a clean, quiet, and restful place to stay, I would employ you to visit After Eight Bed & Breakfast. Robert is such a delightful host, he made our stay even more enjoyable.
5 on September 07, 2016
Easy check-in, great host, clean and comfortable corner room on the 1st floor of the B&B. Each morning our host, Robert, greeted the guests with a description of the breakfast being served after which he entertained us by telling us what he calls "little stories". Robert was the perfect travel guide (even though he never left his post). No matter where in the area (or a bit out of it), Robert was able to accommodate. Recommend staying there; we will again in the near future.

Had a marvelous room and breakfasts with our host Robert regaling us with stories and hilarious sales pitches for his cookbook. the cookbook has fantastic recipes with area for notations. Truly a 4 star B&B.
5 on September 02, 2016
We have been coming to After Eight for many years. We find it a wonderful place to stay. The location is convenient, the rooms are comfortable and very clean, but most important the inn-keeper Robert is friendly and knows so much about the area. You will stay once and all other B&Bs won't measure up!
5 on September 01, 2016
Lovely location,reasonably priced, lots to see and do, beautiful rooms and grounds, great breakfasts and accommodating to special needs diets, and most importantly Robert the host and owner. He's charming, friendly, and funny. He's also very helpful helping his guests find local attractions and great dining suggestions. We look forward to return every year. Ron and Pat Hosler

We enjoyed our stay at After Eight. The room was cozy and comfortable. The bathroom was really nice. Both rooms were very clean. The best part about our stay was the food. Robert is an excellent cook, and we were spoiled by his delicious, big breakfasts. He was also kind enough to accommodate my diet to keep my blood sugar low.
5 on August 25, 2016
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!!
5 on August 23, 2016
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

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!
5 on August 16, 2016
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!
5 on August 10, 2016
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.
5 on August 09, 2016
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
5 on August 08, 2016
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!
5 on July 19, 2016
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. :-)
5 on July 13, 2016
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!!
4.8 on July 03, 2016
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
4.0 on July 02, 2016
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.
4.6 on June 26, 2016
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.
4.8 on June 18, 2016
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
4.8 on June 17, 2016
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.
4.6 on June 07, 2016
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.
5 on June 05, 2016
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
4.6 on June 03, 2016
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.
4.0 on May 06, 2016
Had a wonderful stay here. Robert was very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. We would definitely stay here again and recommend his property to our friends and family!
Thank you for your nice comments. Please come again there is so much to see and do in Lancaster County Pennsylvania.
5 on April 28, 2016
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.
Thank you and every time repeat guests visit, it is like meeting with friends again. I am glad that you always enjoy your time here. Hope to see you again very soon.
5 on April 08, 2016
Staying at After Eight is a wonderful experience. Robert is the perfect host. Our room was beautiful and our breakfasts were delicious. This was our second stay at After Eight and we look forward to many more. After Eight is the nicest B&B we have stayed at. Walter & Juanita
Thank you Walter and Juanita. Having new guests return is always a good that I might be doing something right. Thanks for all your kinds words. Hope you can come again soon.
5 on April 07, 2016
Robert is a wonderful host and an excellent chef. We love staying in the different rooms and working on the puzzles that are ongoing. Robert is also a comedian at breakfast which is a great way to start the day along with his delicious breakfast.
What nice things to say. My goal is to help people relax from their regular routine and if I can make you laugh a little and enjoy a good breakfast I have achieved my goal. Thanks again.
5 on April 01, 2016
The bed and breakfast was very clean and nice. The breakfasts were excellent. We will stay there again when we come down.
Thank you so much. I am glad you had a good visit and please do come back again.
5 on March 30, 2016
Everything was very nice. We really had a good time.
I am glad to hear that and when you do return I will keep giving you new places to visit and explore, there is so much to see and do in Lancaster. Thanks again.
4.6 on March 23, 2016
We enjoyed our 3 day stay at After 8 very much. The room had a great view, with a balcony; although the March weather didn't co-operate in that regard. Robert was most gracious & very skilled in accommodating the wife's very restrictive diet. The "dose of humour" helped to start the day in the right direction.
Awesome, and yes the Balcony Room has a great view of the gardens and the Amish farm. Now you will need to return and enjoy the balcony, relaxing just for the view or enjoying some snacks and in cheese, crackers and wine. Thank you again for you nice words.
5 on March 22, 2016
We were given a gift to visit Lancaster for a show and overnight stay at After Eight B&B. We were very pleasantly surprised with Robert and his passion for what he loves to do. Our room was very nice and our shower was a his and hers with two show heads. The breakfast was delicious and served to us with great pride. Robert is an awesome cook and really pays attention to detail. The location was very close to all of the attractions. Well done Robert and staff.
I am so glad that you enjoyed your visit and yes, the Private Corner has what I call the couples shower!! I do enjoy meeting so many nice people and helping them to relax and feel at home is a primary goal. Thanks and please come again.
5 on March 10, 2016
everything about our stay was excellent.. the reason we can't say anything about the dining is that we're Jewish and hold to strict kosher standards. what I can say about the food is that it smelled great. Robert is an incredible host and takes the necessary time to insure that each guest has all their needs taken care of.. he is excellent in making sure you know where to go so you can enjoy your personal getaway (to post this review I had to score the food so I went by smell not taste)
Thank you so much. I am glad that you were able to use the kitchen in the Cottage and able to enjoy your meals. I do try to accommodate most dietary restrictions, but kosher is not one that I am able to adhere to unless it was just a packaged meal. Thank you again, I a glad you had a good time and please do come back again.
5 on March 09, 2016
My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay at the After Eight B&B! The B&B is in a great location - close to many attractions of Lancaster County. The rooms were clean and decorated beautifully. The Host Robert was friendly and extremely knowledgeable - and his breakfast stories and food were exceptional. Would defintley recommend and we look forward to another visit!
3.6 on March 06, 2016
NIce home converted to an inn - B&B. Right on the primary road in Lancaster. RIGHT on the road - some traffic noise.
5 on January 10, 2016
We stayed at Robert's After Eight B&B in October for two nights and we regretted that we couldn't extend our stay due to other arrangements. The house, rooms and garden are beautiful and Robert is a charming and very supporting host. He helped us find the best way to the Blue Ridge Parkway, which we wouldn't have hit without him, I'm afraid. His breakfasts are very tasty and we loved the stories he tells during breakfast time. A lovely custom. We do hope to be able to return one day.
4.8 on January 04, 2016
Great New Year's Weekend including a Murder-Mystery with dinner. Breakfast was very tasty. Our host Robert was wonderful, friendly and funny. The B&B was very clean and relaxing.can't wait to do it again.
5 on December 01, 2015
All was wonderful here! I forgot my own pillow (for my neck) & the pillows/bed here felt fabulous. Everything is very clean. Robert makes delicious cookies for the day and breakfast is something to look forward to. Always a puzzle to work on when you come in and the common area is very pleasant. Robert is knowledgeable & detailed with his tour and recommendations for the surrounding area. There are beautiful handmade mugs that you can purchase as souvenirs & also Christmas ornaments. The location is perfect with the most beautiful Amish farmland out the back and everything is close. A must-see is the Christmas Museum down the road! We do return to this area every few years and will stay here from now on! We have stayed in many B&B's and this ranks the highest!
5 on November 17, 2015
Our stays at After Eight B&B have been so enjoyable. The rooms are always very clean and inviting. The furnishings are lovely. Robert goes above and beyond to make our stay memorable. His breakfasts are delicious; he always wants to know dietary limitations and goes out of his way to accommodate. His stories at breakfast make it a relaxing and fun time with the other guests. We highly recommend this B&B!
4.0 on November 07, 2015
Robert made us feel very welcome and at home and gave us a tour of all the amenities when we arrived. The grounds were beautiful and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed meeting other guests at breakfast and throughout the day. It is close to many of Lancaster's wonderful attractions and restaurants. I would highly recommend After Eight to all of my family and friends!
5 on November 06, 2015
My mother and I stayed in one of the cottages recently, and had a truly terrific time. The accommodations were quiet, comfortable, well appointed, and the sheets were the softest I have ever slept on. The breakfast was unique and tasty, and our host Robert was a pleasure to spend time with - great sense of humor! This was one of the best, if not THE best B&B experience I have had.
4.8 on October 31, 2015
Everything was flawless as usual. My wife and I have been coming here for 5 years, and will return again. Robert makes excellent and generous breakfast, He gives many helpful suggestions on activities to do while staying there, and is a flawless host. He keeps the rooms absolutely spotless.
5 on October 28, 2015
We recently stayed two nights and I had never been to any B&B before. Roger was very accommodating and hospitable. breakfast was hot and delicious both mornings, we are looking forward to returning in the future.
4.6 on October 27, 2015
Our stay at After Eight Bed & Breakfast was wonderful. Robert met us right away, checking us in and taking us on a tour of the B&B. The breakfasts served each morning were so good and was the perfect start of our day. The only reason we didn't give 5 stars on the room was the bed, we prefer an extra firm bed to soft memory foam. Otherwise the room was beautiful and comfortable to be in. We would recommend this B&B to anyone thinking of visiting Lancaster, PA. Keep up the great job Robert, we enjoyed our stay with you. Peter & Tina
5 on October 21, 2015
Our stay at After Eight Bed and Breakfast was delightful. The room upstairs overlooked a field in the back of the inn. Our room was clean and furnished very nicely. The breakfasts were delicious. Apple pancakes were my favorite, although the Amish breakfast casserole was very good as well. Host Robert was very helpful in guiding us through the town and helped us find specific locations as we were not familiar with the area. All in all a wonderful visit. I would highly recommend this inn to friends and those wishing to have a nice stay at a bed and breakfast in the area.
5 on October 14, 2015
We brought our eldest daughter here. She works overseas, and is a world traveler. We stayed in the Cottage West and she was very impressed.
5 on October 12, 2015
Several college friends (class of 1967) and I concluded a week-long reunion exploring Pennsylvania with a two-night stay at After Eight. We enjoyed the attractively decorated living spaces, complete with jigsaw puzzle to work on, and the beautiful guest rooms. I especially savored my view of Amish farm fields. The two breakfasts were delicious. Robert gave us excellent tips on local sightseeing attractions and restaurants. We couldn't have asked for a friendlier, funnier, more cordial host.
4.8 on October 09, 2015
Our stay here could not have better. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Robert and he proceeded to explain the comings and goings of the Inn. Showed us the common rooms and then the private corner room that we had chosen. The Room was immaculate, and everything was in order. The bed and linens were very, very comfortable. We had two breakfasts, both were very tasty and health conscious. Coffee, light drinks, and snacks were available all day in the dining room. Thank you Robert for making our stay outstanding.
5 on September 29, 2015
In looking at hotel prices around Lancaster, we found that for the price, it was a much better deal to stay at After Eight. Robert was not only a welcoming host, but also a chef that knew how to entice our breakfast pallets with delicious meals. The room was clean and inviting and we truly felt "at home."
5 on September 28, 2015
Our stay at After Eight was very nice. Everything was very clean and beautifully decorated. Theresa was the Inn sitter and she was wonderful. The breakfast was out standing. We would definitely stay here again.
5 on September 25, 2015
Robert welcomed us warmly when we arrived - it was absolutely pouring down with rain and he provided a huge umbrella for us to get our bags out of the car and into the house. His tour of the property was fantastic; he didn't just show us where everything was, and leave us to it, but took the time to find out why we were there, suggesting attractions we should see in the area and giving tips on the best buggy rides to take, the microbrewery bars around Lancaster, where to eat, and so on. The room itself was amazing. Large, airy and bright in the morning, with plenty of space for our clothes and bits and bobs. The bathroom was lovely and the shower had enough pressure. Everything was very clean but not that sterile-clean that makes you feel like you were in a generic chain hotel. The breakfasts - home cooked to his own recipes - were very tasty and original, as well as the breakfast conversations, where he'd recount really interesting stories and get everyone involved. The location was nice, too. While being close to a busy road you didn't hear too much of the passing traffic, and the opposite side backed out onto open fields and farms, which was lovely to see in the morning (I woke up early one morning and went down for a coffee on the front porch and saw the sun rise, as well as smoking on the back porch in the evening and listening to the cows and crickets). All in all we both had a wonderful time here and we would definitely go back when we come back to the area.
5 on September 09, 2015
The bed was so comfortable and the sheets so smooth, room was clean, it added to our relaxing weekend away. Robert was more than helpful.
4.4 on September 09, 2015
My wife and I stayed two nights and very much enjoyed our stay. The place was immaculately clean and the host, Robert, very gracious.
5 on September 04, 2015
We have stayed many times in this Bed and Breakfast because we like it so much. Robert is a wonderful host and chef. He is very personable and keeps his B&B immaculate. The rooms are lovely and very comfortable. He has many immenities available to make you feel at home and he can suggest mant places to go to eat or sight-see.He has spoiled us because other places we've stayed in have not been as nice!
5 on August 28, 2015
We stayed two nights and would have extended our stay if we could have! Robert is an excellent host, breakfast chef, humorist, and helpful in many ways. Our room was very comfortable and we felt right at home in the porch room with our own "front door!"
5 on August 25, 2015
Robert is a delight. Our breakfast was delicious along with his free entertainment. We keep returning.
5 on August 23, 2015
We enjoyed our stay at After Eight. The room was comfortable and very pretty. Robert recommended several things to do, as we were unfamiliar with the town. The breakfast was delicious. Robert took the extra effort to make mine gluten free. We would definitely come again and recommend it to our friends and family.
5 on August 15, 2015
Only thing to say is it is a great bed and breakfast. Tops
5 on August 06, 2015
This was our first time visiting Lancaster and we were pleased and surprised by all that we experienced. We rented the West Cottage with 2 bedrooms, kitchen and sitting area. The accommodations were spotless and the beds very comfortable. We pumped Robert with lots of questions concerning the Amish community because it was our first time here. He was very knowledgeable and shared this freely with us. He gave us brochures and told us the best places to go. The breakfast was delicious; we ate every morsel. He even catered to one who was celiac. The grounds were kept well and no garbage anywhere. Well maintained Inn. We would recommend it highly and plan to visit again.
4.8 on July 28, 2015
A great two day stay in Amish country. Our room was cozy, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was terrific! Robert is very personable and knowledgeable about the area. Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends.

Our stay at the After Eight was very enjoyable. The room was beautiful and the breakfast was quite good. Robert is a fine host as well as a great entertainer!
5 on July 21, 2015
Every thing was perfect. The setting with flowers in the foreground and the Amish farms in the background was superb.
5 on July 09, 2015
Gourmet breakfast was wonderful. The Sunset room was spacious and well decorated. The host actually lives in a different building so we didn't feel like we were intruding on someone's home. Centrally located to all the local sites. Thanks, Robert, for a great stay!
Thanks for your kindness. I am glad that you enjoyed yourself and please come again. Robert
5 on July 09, 2015
could not have been more pleased, from check in to check out. Pleasent decor and atmosphere. Centrally located to everything we wanted and the most helpful, entertaining and informative owner I've come across in a long time. Will be coming back.
You are so welcome and I look forward to your return visit. Robert

Thank you and I hope that when you do return and I can change the 'fours' to 'fives'. Just let me know what I need to do. Thanks again. Robert.
5 on June 02, 2015
We have stayed at After Eight B&B numerous times and we are never disappointed. Robert is the most gracious host. His breakfasts are always super delicious. The rooms are spotless and absolutely perfect. A true gem!
I am glad that you notice my effort in helping guests to relax and enjoy their time of relaxation. I hope to see you many more times. Robert
5 on May 22, 2015
My wife and I have stayed at various B&B's, and never made return visits. Just returned from our third trip to After Eight, and are discussing our next visit in the near future. On our most recent visit we stayed at one of the cottages just a short distance from the main house. We enjoyed it so much. It was roomy, and very well equipped if you prefer to do some cooking. Stove. refrigerator, dishwasher, etc. Our host, Robert, goes out of his way to make the visit extra special. Cleanliness and service are second to none.
It is great that you have tried several rooms. The cottages are a great retreat and you still have the option to enjoy all the common areas in the main house as well as breakfast in the morning. Thanks again, I hope to see you soon. Robert
4.8 on May 16, 2015
Robert, We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you. Our room, the breakfasts, the hospitality the other guests, the house itself and even the jokes made for a wonderful getaway from everyday cares and concerns. Not sure whether to thank you or blame you (lol), but after returning home, I almost immediately ordered two large jigsaw puzzles for Susan and I to work on together. We will also be sampling recipes from the autographed B & B cookbook. Thanks again, John and Susan
Reading this message made me smile. Jigsaw Puzzles are a great way to relax and the 'group' effort and lend to some great conversations. As you mentioned the cookbook has some great recipes. Hope to see you soon.
4.8 on May 13, 2015
We have stayed there last year, and will return next year. We had always wanted to try a B an B ,and after our experience will use After Eight before any motel.Thanks for great get away , Robert.
You are like many of my guests, they try a bed and breakfast for the first time and then find they are more relaxing and homey than a hotel. Thanks come again soon.
4.2 on April 27, 2015
This was our first B&B experience. Robert was a wonderful help in setting up this surprise stay for us. The room was fantastic, and the breakfast servied was over the top. We met a few nice folks while staying and really enjoyed the experience. Even though we have visited Lancaster many times, Robert was able to point us in several new directions for places to visit. We really enjoyed our visit. Thank you
Thank you. I am always trying to find something new and different for guests that enjoy exploring new locations. There is so much to see and do in Lancaster Pennsylvania. Bed and breakfasts are great ways to meet other people from all over the country and the world. I am glad you met some nice people.
5 on April 25, 2015
Love this B&B. Rooms are clean, welcomeing, & comfortable. the host Robert makes you feel rite at home. always has advice on what to do & where to go. his character is comforting. breakfast time is always a treat. go visit Robert & his After Eight Bed & Breakfast, the views are beautiful & relaxing.
I am glad that I am successful in helping you feel relaxed and at home. That is always my goal with each guest. A 'home away from home'. Thank you.
5 on April 22, 2015
Our stay at the After Eight Bed & Breakfast was wonderful! Robert, our host, provided so much information about local attractions as well as places to eat. As soon as you pull into the parking area and see the working Amish farm behind the B&B, you begin to relax. We stayed in the cottage, which was very clean and inviting. Robert thinks of everything to make your stay educational, fun and relaxing. We will be back!
Yes, there is an Amish farm right at the back fence. Many guests get the opportunity to see them in various aspects of farming, depending on the time of the year. I have lots of information about the surrounding area and many guests tell me about more locations to add to my list. I look forward to your return.
5 on April 17, 2015
We always enjoy visiting Lancaster and staying at the After Eight. Cozy and friendly best describes the environment. Robert, our host, always makes a yummy breakfast and provides snacks&beverages 24/7. We loved the apple walnut baked pancake on Monday. Cannot wait to make it at home. Our room was very comfortable and well appointed. Parking is easy and safe. We enjoy that a puzzle is always out for everyone to work on during their stay. We look forward to future visits.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. It was great having you again. The German Apple Pancake is one of my guests favorite recipes. I am always happy to share any of my recipes, if I can remember how I made them. See you again, soon.

We were delighted to find that the rooms in the B&B were considerably larger than most B&B's we've visited, so there was plenty of space to relax. There was also great attention to the need for counter/table space, outlets for gadgets and plenty of lighting options. So it was a great mix of the charm of an older house with the ease of modern touches. Robert was very helpful and the breakfasts, wonderful.

My husband and I enjoy our recent trip to the Lancaster area. This was our first time staying at a B&B and we thought the experience was outstanding. Robert made sure we had everything we needed for our weekend away. Breakfast each morning was different and very tasty. You can't go wrong when staying at After Eight B&B.

We had the most FABULOUS time with Robert at the After Eight Bed and Breakfast! The rooms were beautiful and SUPER CLEAN! Robert is a WONDERFUL host! We shall return!

Robert was a great host and made us feel right at home! Terrific source of info about what to see & do.

We have visited After Eight B&B three times and will return! It is located in the Amish country and close to all the area's museums, attractions, and resturants. Robert is an excellent host providing delicious breakfasts, and recommendations for the area. It has a cozy gathering room, a TV-computer room, and a jigsaw puzzle is always available to work on with your new friends! Looking forward to our next visit.
5 on April 13, 2014
This is the best B&B I have stayed at in the east Lancaster area. The host is quietly helpful without being obtrusive. Best of all, you feel so welcome in his home that guest congregate in the parlor to meet and work jigsaw puzzles together. Very home-like.
5 on February 28, 2014
My husband and I enjoyed After Eight B&B The room was beautiful with everything you could need. Well stocked kitchen, great breakfasts, and clean towels on the second day too. It was a friendly atmosphere and fellowship with other guests. We will be going back. Bob and Chris Hollis

Just got home from a wonderful 3 day stay. The house is so clean and the rooms are beautiful. The innkeeper Robert is very funny and he cooks the best breakfast. It was so peaceful and relaxing. It is very close to all attractions in Lancaster. We spent time in the gazebo and rocking on the chairs on the porch. We will be going back again soon. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast!! Rachel and Bob

It was a very nice Bed and Breakfast, very clean and the Inkeeper was super sweet and gave us information on things we wanted to do and also had great suggestions . We would go back again. Great food and good company !

Although located on a main highway, Robert helps guests feel like they are escaping into a paradise. The rooms are elegant and the food is gourmet. This B&B is well worth a stay.
5 on July 13, 2013
We stayed for two nights and wish we could've stayed longer. Robert is a wonderful host, good natured, interesting and very accommodating. Our room, the Sunrise Bay Window room was pleasant, beautiful and above all, clean! We were so comfortable in that cozy bed! Waking up to a delicious breakfast and Robert's funny stories was a wonderful way to start our day too. Hopefully we will return and next time for a longer stay. No complaints. Only happy memories.
5 on July 12, 2013
Very nice and well kept. We really enjoyed our stay. Robert pointed us in the right directions on visiting some of the many attractions of Lancaster County and the Amish Country. He is an excellent cook and we bought a cookbook from him and upon returning home and sharing it with some of my friends at the office, I now have alot more orders for "Favorite Recipes" Authentic Bed and Breakfasts of Lancaster County, PA. We will definately return and recommend to anyone traveling to the area. The Bagleys'

This was my first time here with my 4 friends. We stayed in the cottage, very clean, and quaint. Bathroom/shower were very nice ( I am picky about my bathrooms) Beds were very comfortable. Robert made the place great. He is not only the owner, but once you are there he feels like family. His breakfasts are superb, his conversation is great, and I think his place is just wonderful. Very pleased. Amy Artim Pittsburgh Pa

Stayed at the After Eight overnight. The rooms were very nicely furnished & everything was clean & in good repair. The owner was very visible & friendly. Very helpful with suggestions.
5 on September 06, 2012
As always our stay here was excellent. Everything is very clean and the food is outstanding. Robert is the consumate host and very knowledgeable of the area. We stayed in the efficiency apartment and it is great for the privacy while still having the closeness. We had two families together and it was just like visiting at together at home. You'll never be disappointed at After Eight.
4.6 on August 21, 2012
We stayed in the Candlelight Room. The room and house were decorated just right. The house, room and grounds were very nicely kept and clean. The extra amenities were the best I have every experience, cookies, drinks, games, “Popcorn” with a bowl!!, 1st B&B that had this available. We were the only ones staying in the house and it was so nice, peaceful and relaxing for my wife and I. The only negative comment that I have and this is not against the owner nor the B&B is the road noise. I am a light sleeper and the traffic is very loud, starting as early as 6am – just so you know. We would, and will stay again. I did not rate the "Service" a Five Star as Robt never checked on us after serving us Breakfast. He seemed to be distracted the whole time we were there.
5 on August 14, 2012
First stay ever, place was so beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing. Owner was courteous, entertaining. Our stay was awesome.
5 on August 11, 2012
I am a frequent travel, on average one international trip every month. And I've stayed at all different kinds of hotels, 5 stars, B&B and so on... but this one stands out... from the room to the breakfast, everything is impressive...
4.4 on August 04, 2012
Our first B & B experience and it was wonderful. Very nice rooms, plush towels and soft sheets. The breakfast was wonderful. Robt is a very good host and provides info on dining, activities, and areas. Drinks and snacks are provided and always available. The only down, was between 1 & 7pm the a/c is off. Room was warm. We will recommend.
5 on July 16, 2012
We were very plesently suprised by everything at the B&B. We only stayed at one other B&B, and this one we will be back again. I fear Robert has spoiled us on hotels in the future.
5 on June 04, 2012
This was the first time my Husband and I stayed in a Bed and Breakfast and I was not disappointed. Staying at the After Eight Bed and Breakfast was a wonderful experience. The place is so serene. I came back very relaxed. Robert is a wonderful host he makes his guest feel as if they are at home. The Breakfast is 5 star all the way. We have already made another reservation. Make a reservation you will not be disappointed.

We came for a return visit on New Year's weekend because we had enjoyed our stay the first time so much! Besides clean and wonderfully appointed rooms, delicious breakfasts, and friendly and impeccable service, we participated with other couples in a murder-mystery dinner theater on New Year's Eve. What fun we had interacting with and getting to meet other couples! Our innkeeper ,Robert, went out of his way to make sure that all of his guests were well cared for and had a wonderful time. He even sought our suggestions for future themed weekends. We can't wait to see what other surprises are in store and definitely will be back.

Our group loved our stay at After Eight. Rooms were wonderful and so is the breakfasts. Only problem it's on a busy road and you can hear the traffic during the night.
5 on December 01, 2011
My husband and I have stayed at After Eight B&B several times and each stay is like a visit to "our other home" (not that we have another home). The atmosphere is warm and friendly, the rooms are immaculate, and the food scrumptious.

OUTSTANDING ! Robert is a genial, warm host who makes you feel comfortable . His breakfast are just fantastic with the added touch of his jokes and commnetgs. He makes an effort to acquaint you with the Lancaster area- especially if you have not been there. RECOMMEND HIGHLY ! Dennis & Carol

We enjoyed every single detail since we arrived at the parking, including the site, the building, the interior decoration and the food. Robert was a great host. We hope to return again.

My stay at the After Eight Bed and Breakfast was great. Robert was a great host and made you feel right at home. I went to Lancaster for some R&R and everything was great. Thank You for such for a terrific stay.
5 on October 03, 2011
We have had great success finding B&B's online and I really appreciate the great photos that give a review of rooms, grounds and rates. Without exception After Eight was everything we saw on the web site. A great find for us Canadians and Robert was a wealth of information to make our stay awesome. We will return to this area again and hopefully stay at this same B&B.
4.6 on September 23, 2011
This is a wonderful place to stay during your time in Lancaster County. The house is spotless and nicely decorated. Breakfast was delicious each morning, and a mini fridge filled with drinks and snacks are available all day. The location is close to many of the attractions in the area. The b&b also has brochures for attractions in the area, as well as coupons for many of the attractions. I would definitely stay here again next time I'm in the area.
5 on September 11, 2011
Our experience at After Eight far exceeded our expectations. Robert took time from his busy schedule every day to route and print bike rides to different points of local interest for us. Rooms were spotless and breakfasts accommodated our vegetarian diet and were delicious. Would not hesitate to recommend to all our bicycling and non-bicycling friends and family. We ourselves will be back.
5 on September 09, 2011
The atmosphere, hospitality and overall serenity of the After Eight Bed & Breakfast made our weekend getaway an overall wonderful experience. Robert was most helpful, humorous and an overall pleasant host. The Candlelit Room was absolutely romantic and beautiful. Cannot wait to go again and stay in one of the other many luxurious rooms they have there. Also, kudos to the jigsaw puzzle in the living room. Nice touch.
4.6 on August 21, 2011
We had never stayed at a B&B before, so really weren't sure what to expect. Our host was great-very personable and gave us lots of ideas on local attractions. There was a security system for entering the house, which I had never thought about that-not something you get in a hotel. Breakfasts were great, house was beautiful, and the other guests there at that time were all repeat visitors. That in itself should tell you what a great place it was!
4.0 on August 17, 2011
We are so happy we found After Eight B&B. This was our third stay. We have visited many B&Bs in the area, but this one by far is our favorite - no need to look elsewhere. It’s location puts us only a short distance from all the points we like to visit and shop. The rooms are clean, roomy and nicely appointed. Robert, our host, is always pleasant, funny and accommodating. The breakfasts are delicious and ample. We will be returning again and again!
5 on August 15, 2011
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Robert went above and beyond for us. Our motorcycle wound up in the shop and he was nice enough to drive us back and forth to the shop. The breakfast he served us was outstanding!! We will definitely go back!
5 on August 08, 2011
We stayed in one of the cottages. Being a family of 5, we appreciated the additional privacy. The cottage was spacious, clean and comfortable. What elevates After Eight Bed & Breakfast to a 5 star outstanding rating is the host. In addition to serving up a great breakfast each morning, Robert goes out of his way to ensure all guests enjoy their stay. Highly recommended.
5 on August 07, 2011
Everything was perfect. Cleanliness is impeccable and the breakfast is superb. We always stay here when we come to the Lancaster area. Bill & Evelyn

This is a wonderful place to stay. The food was excellent and the room and house were great. I would highly recommend it to anyone and hope to stay there again in the future. Robert is a great host!

This is a great place to stay in PA Amish country. The host is very friendly and helpful with recommendations for places to visit for dining and shopping and sightseeing. The breakfasts are outstanding and served in a beautiful setting. The rooms have charming decor and the whole house is furnished with period pieces that enhance the B&B exoerience. A great value!

After 8 is the "home-base" for our annual trips to Lancaster. The rooms are clean, cozy and comfortable. The bathrooms are state-of-the-art with all the 4-star hotel amenities. The host, Robert, is extraordinary--from his delicious, gourmet breakfasts to his recommendations for everything from ice cream to shows to fine dining to local sights. Robert makes each guest feel special, And to top it off, the price is right! It's a rare find, a fabulous retreat from our hectic suburban life. Come visit Robert and see the best of Lancaster.

Everything including the host and food was perfect. The location was right on a highway, and the noise of eighteen wheelers rolling by, detracted from the ambiance.

My husband & I frequent Bed & Breakfasts while traveling whenever possible and After Eight B & B is by far one of the best! This was our first stay, but it certainly won't be out last! The house & property are gorgeous, convenient, exceptionally clean, cozy and comfortable! The one & only complaint we have would be the pillows didn't exactly provide enough support & were a bit flat, however everything else was awesome! We travel to Ronks often & After Eight will definitely be our home away from home going forward! Thanks a million, Robert!

This is our first time staying at a Bed & Breakfast and it was outstanding. After Eight makes you feel right at home (with out all the work) They are located close to everything and know everything about the area, so don’t be afraid to ask We would defiantly stay here again and are planning to.
4.4 on May 18, 2011
This is a terrific place to stay just a tiny bit away from the main traffic area. Robert took such good care of us beginning with recommendations for places to visit while there, discount coupons, accommodating our needs and best of all, he was very fun to visit with. The relaxing porch looks onto the beautiful gardens and nearby Amish farms. Would highly recommend the whole experience for anyone going to Lancaster and environs. Linda K.

Our room was well appointed and clean. The common areas were comfortable and inviting. Robert, the innkeeper, was very helpful and a wonderful host. The breakfast was delicious. I would recommend this B & B to anyone without hesitation.

Very clean facility. We've stayed at others and this is the best! Robert is a wonderful host and has many suggestions of places to see and eat, if you are interested. Very relaxing and quiet for a restful sleep even with other guests. All positives, no negatives. Enjoyed the double shower!
4.8 on May 07, 2011
I planned my weekend at After Eight to be a relaxing get away and it was exactly that! The food was exceptional! The rooms were awesome and spotless and Robert . . . you just cant find any better!! He knows the area and makes excellent suggestions about food, tourist attractions, and just anything you would want to know! It was a perfect weekend and I cant wait to go back!!

The host Robert is wonderful and funny. Rooms are spotless and breakfast the best.
4.4 on May 05, 2011
My wife and I loved it here. When we arrived, checking in was as painless as can be. Robert, the host, had everything ready. Shortly afterward, Robert gave us a tour of the common areas. And after asking if we had an itinerary for our stay, he gave us a number of possible sites to visit (complete with brochures and business cards to refer to later). The atmosphere was very pleasant. It was right after easter, and there were a number of easter themed decorations, but not so much to make it gaudy. Over-all the interior design is calm and relaxing. The breakfast day 1 was pineapple french toast with water-mellon and kiwis. Breakfast day 2 was stuffing pie with cantaloupe and strawberries. During breakfast, Robert also proceeded to entertain the guests with jokes. In my book, the amount of detail and effort put into this bed and breakfast really shows. On top of that, the host went that extra mile so we felt comfortable and enjoyed our stay (not only indoors, but also in Lancaster).
5 on April 28, 2011
This was our first B&B stay and we were very impressed, especially with Robert running the B&B by himself. He did a fantastic job with everything. We were really surprised when we came back from running around that our bed was made and room straightened up. That was a pleasanat surprise. And that Robert could cook like that...unbelievable. The past was immaculately clean. We will definitely come back in two years for another visit.

Robert is a wonderful host. Loved the humor at breakfast. Wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back. Thanks!

I have stayed at After Eight for three years in a row now while attending the quilt show. The rooms are always clean, comfy and cozy, and pleasantly relaxing. The food is great and the owner a delight to talk to. I will continue to come back here and recommend it to friends.
5 on March 31, 2011
My husband and I try to stay only at B & B's. We prefer them to hotels. We have stayed at After Eight twice now and would recommend it to anyone. The rooms are immaculate as is the whole house, the food is awesome and the host is ver charming and funny. My husband is not a very social person but enjoys the breakfast company at this B & B. Robert is full of suggestions for places to visits and resturaunts. We will definitely be going back again!

Compared to other B&Bs my wife and I have stayed at After Eight is above average in all categories, but the real icing on the cake is your Host Robert. Breakfast is outstanding, this man can cook. Like our first visit here we skipped lunch both days (all 4 if you count our 2008 visit) because it was so filling. To go with breakfast you may be treated to a small comedy routine, gratis, to start your day. The rooms are pretty good, all unique, clean, well organized and quiet. Out in the common areas people really do play chess and put together puzzles when waiting to go out at night or when coming back in. In-fact, it's not uncommon to find another guest to play with, talk with etc. and we've never had a problem with other guests. Best B&B in the Lancaster area. Will definitely return for a 3rd stay sometime.

After Eight is a wonderful place to stay. It's so beautiful, tastefully decorated, extremely clean and so inviting. Bob is not only an excellent host but a wonderful cook.

This B & B was very well located close to many attractions in Lancaster County. The food was amazing! We stayed in the Balcony room which was very pretty. Unfortunately, it was too cold to utilize it, but it would be a great asset in the warmer weather.

This was a return trip for us and we loved it the second time around as well as the first time back in May 2010. Roberts breakfast are as beautiful as they are delicious. His entertainment makes for a very enjoyable breakfast. We shall return! Ron & Jan (and Mary too)

We have stayed quite a few times at After Eight and have never been disappointed. After Eight is meticulously cared for and although Robert, the innkeeper, says he is not a trained chef, his breakfasts are amazing. He also has lots of suggestions as to where to go, what's going on, etc. When visiting Lancaster, we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. Joan Cope

We have gone to this B&B quite a few times and don't want to leave when our stay is over! We will go back...we truly enjoy the peace and quiet, cleanliness, and the host, Robert, does his job well. We have been to different B&B's and this is just one of our favorites.

The home and rooms where very clean. The breakfasts where out of this world no one left anything one their plate. Will go back many times.

my wife and i got married in June of 2010. we stayed at After Eight B&B at the end of October 2010. My wife and I had tickets to Sight and Sound. She gave me the go ahead to choose the B&B. There are a lot of B&B's in the Lancaster area. I liked the pictures from After Eight's website and i took a chance. It was a hard choice. After Eight made me look good as a new husband. We had a great time. If you are looking for a B&B in the Lancaster and beyond area, choose After Eight! Robert the keeper of After Eight was very friendly, funny and extremely informative about what to do for food, fun and relaxation. Our room was well maintained, very comfortable and relaxing. There are two sitting rooms downstairs, an amazing kitchen and dining area. Robert provides board games, cards, puzzles, great snacks and free beverages. The view of the backyard is a true Lancaster painting. The breakfast he provided each morning was grade A. My wife and I even purchased the cook book he and about 40+ other Lancaster B&B's put together. We are looking forward to making for our family what Robert made for us. Robert makes you feel at home. His cookies are amazing. After Eight might be the only B&B we ever go to now. After Eight is right off the road. It was great because of the convenience to go places. Our room was close to the road and we could barely hear the traffic.
5 on November 02, 2010
The entire six day stay was the most enjoyable time my wife and I have ever experienced. We will always try to book the suite when we travel to Pa. Dutch country. Our host could not have been more accomodating and his interaction with all of the guests was superbe.
5 on October 23, 2010
This is a great B & B and we keep coming back. Everything is excellent and we have not found another where the innkeeper makes you feel more welcome that After Eight. The rooms are great, well appointed and always very clean. The breakfast is fantastic. But most of all the innkeeper makes the real difference here.
5 on October 20, 2010
The host is great, as is his breakfasts. He takes time with everyone and is knowledgeable about all the local attractions. We WILL be back at this great B&B
4.2 on October 20, 2010

Robert was a wonderful host. His breakfasts were to die for. He was gracious and provided us with more activities then we had time for. His suggestions were everything he said they would be. Our room was very comfortable. We felt like we were staying in our own home. We never really heard anyone except at breakfast. We have no problem recommending After Eight to anyone. It will definitely be our first choice any time we stay in Lancaster. I won't spend endless hours on line looking for a place again.

Hospitality was great. Food -- delicious. Looking forward to going again!

Best B&B in the Lancaster area. Robert (aka Bob) is a great host. Somewhat of a comedian (Don't quit your day job) & salesman. Breakfast is outstanding! Bob is a college of knowledge for the area, restaurants, attractions etc. Make this B&B your traveling destination!!!! It is like home.

This stay was our first at After Eight Bed & Breakfast and we had such a great time there that we know we must return. Our room was spacious and easy for me to get around in my wheelchair though not truly handicapped accessible. I had no trouble accessing any of the areas of the facility or any place in our room or bathroom since Robert kindly put a plastic chair into the shower for me. We were with our daughter and son-in-law and they enjoyed the stay as much as we did. We found Robert to be a font of valuable information about the Lancaster area and his suggestions for things to do made us wish we had more time to spend at After Eight. The first morning we were there we awoke to a power failure but Robert was so resourceful that he managed to give us a lovely breakfast in spite there being no power. He even made us toast on the stove top as there was no power for the toaster. He entertained us with jokes that had us all laughing joyously. Sunday's breakfast was just fabulous French toast casserole with blueberries and maple syrup. A true tour de force served with more humour. We left the table stuffed. All in all, we had a great time and never turned on the TV because the grounds were beautiful enticing and the living room had an addictive jig saw puzzle that kept us up later than we'd intended. Thanks for everything, Robert. We hope we'll see you again soon

This was my first trip to Lancaster County....and I couldn't have chosen better accommodations! The room was tastefully furnished, I had a private entrance to the porch and gardens (fully equipped with rabbits!). Robert is the consummate host, giving me directions and suggestions to make my short visit a great experience. His breakfasts!!!!! YUM!!!! A real highlight! (and he entertains you with witty jokes during breakfast...) I will definitely be returning... Elaine, MA

This was my first stay at a B&B and I was not disappointed. My friends and I went there for a weekend getaway and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves (this was their second stay). We stayed in the two cottages and they were so cute and quaint and homey. Robert was the best host, and chef. His demeanor matched the atmosphere to a "T," laid-back, comfortable, and relaxing. Thanks so much for everything, I'll definitely be back!

Staying at After Eight Bed N Breakfast was by far the most memorable experience we have ever had at a Bed and Breakfast. Robert(the owner) is passionate about making your stay memorable. From suggestions on what we might be interested in seeing in the area to the fine details that he so generously had available for his guests. A refrigerator filled with soda to canisters filled with granola bars, biscotti, crackers and microwave popcorn that gave you the feeling that you were at home. Breakfast was fabulous and the room set up with individual tables for two that made it less intimidating to be sharing a meal with others staying there. But Roberts repoir with his guests was phenominal and infectious. He has a way of putting everyone at ease and it is apparent that he loves what he does and we can't wait to go back. Deb & Dave Owens

We had our first B&B experience at the After Eight! It was awesome! My husband planned it for a surprise to me and had everything planned out! This is located in a perfect area...close to it all...food, shops, amish, beautiful land, comedy clubs, music theater, x-mas museum, etc. You feel like your far away though which is wonderful! The B&B is beautiful, and the rooms are gorgeous and comfy...very relaxing! Everything is clean. We thought it was neat to be able to have a kitchen area stocked with so many yummy treats that we could help ourselves to whenever we wanted. Robert is an awesome guy! From cooking his scrumptious homemade food, to making you laugh with his great sense of humor, to letting you know what the area has to offer...he has it all....a wonderful host..he makes you feel right at home! We will be back for sure!! This is a definate must stay for anyone looking for a lovely B&B experience!! Andrea & Troy

I just had the privilege of spending 2 nights with 15 of my dearest Christian sisters at this wonderful B&B with Robert meeting our every need! The accomodations were impeccable, homey, and extemely clean. Robert is an outstanding host, fabulous cook, and even provided our comic relief! I will definitely be back and will be bringing friends and family. Robert, thank you for your kindness, hospitality, patience and willingness to serve the houseful of women! We could not have asked for more.

We spent three wonderful nights at After Eight Bed and Breakfast and found everything about this charming inn to be excellent. The inn is beautifully decorated throughout and our bedroom and bath were warm and comfortable with all the modern conveniences. The breakfasts each morning were delicious and very filling. The innkeeper is extremely welcoming and has an abundance of knowledge about the area which he generously shares with his guests. Our itinerary for our activities revolved around many of his suggestions, and we enjoyed everything we did. This B&B is centrally located to so many places one would want to include in a visit to Lancaster County. We found it a great place to stay and would love to return sometime!

My fiancee and I had another enjoyable stay at this B&B. Clean rooms and clean outside are the norm at this B&B. Excellent breakfast and hospitality. I would highly recommend this B&B!

We had a great room, great breakfasts and excellent local touring advice. After Eight was just the place we were looking for when we decided to visit the Pennsylvania Amish country. Robert is an excellent host, and his breakfasts were creative and very tasty.

This was the first time my husband and I have ever spent at a Bed and Breakfast and we had such a wonderful, relaxing time that we cannot wait to do it again. Our Inn Keeper was the perfect host! Not only did he serve the best breakfast we have ever eaten, but he took the time to recommend local events and attractions. We have never stayed in Lancaster overnight before and never knew there was so much to do other than frequent the outlet stores. Robert told us about the quaint shops in Intercourse, PA and we went to Lapp Farm where we ate homemade ice cream on the porch of the farm store. We also were able to see the farm animals as we strolled around the grounds. Robert recommended a few local restaurants and we went to the Iron Horse in Strasburg where we enjoyed one of the most wonderful meals I have ever had. We then went to a comedy show Robert recommended which has us laughing from beginning to end. Our room was absolutely beautiful with its antique furnishings and spacious bathroom with a whirlpool tub. We were able to relax and leave all of our stresses behind and enjoyed one of the best weekends together that we have ever had. It was very difficult to leave, but we decided that we would definitely be visiting again! We are recommending this hidden treasure to our friends and family so they too can experience the fun and relaxation that we did.
5 on June 29, 2009
My husband and I stayed at After Eight for 3 nights (June 13, 14, 15 2009), and Robert was a perfect Innkeeper. We had traveled all day by car and felt relaxed the moment we walked on the porch -- a beautiful farm view and hanging baskets of petunias greeted us. Our rooom was nice; the breakfasts were very good and very pretty! Robert gave us many good suggestions on how to enjoy our 3 day stay in the area. Our experience could not have been better.

My husband and I wanted to try something different to celebrate our 37th anniversary. What a nice surprise! My husband was hesitant at first but now says he would do it again. Our room was very nice, private corner room, very clean and the bed very comfy. I especially enjoyed working on 2 jigsaw puzzles. My husband liked the chocolates! Breakfast was delicious and very filling. We found this bed and breakfast to be very quiet and relaxing. Atco, NJ

My husband and I found the inn online and were looking for a quiet, romantic get-away. I had the innkeeper select a quiet room for us and he chose the Balcony Room, which is directly at the top of the stairs and in the middle of all the second story rooms. The inn is beautiful and tastefully decorated with many amenities and very clean. However, our room had a mattress that was hard as a brick and the bed squawked anytime there was movement in the bed-not exactly ideal for a relaxing, romantic weekend. The second night we stayed, we were wakened by the innkeeper and guests who were playing a noisy game of Yahtzee downstairs. They quieted down immediately when my husband went down and explained they woke us, but as a consequence we overslept the next morning and missed breakfast which is scheduled for 8:30 am (not 8:00 - 10:00 as the website states). When we came down to check out, I gained the impression we had been the topic of discussion from the smirks and sudden silence of guests and, rather than apologizing for waking us up, the innkeeper went through a long recitation of all the terrific food we missed by not coming to breakfast. Apparently it didn't occur to him that it was because of his behavior that we were too tired and overslept. It is a beautiful inn and I'm sure it is not always noisy, but it certainly did not provide us with a quiet, relaxing or romantic get-away. My advice is to pass--there are lots of nice accommodations in the area with beds that are comfortable and innkeepers that don't ridicule you.

This is a lovely B&B. Well maintained and comfortable. Robert the host makes this place special! He has the right balance between helpfulness and privacy. His breakfasts are great and the little extras, like a well stocked mini refrigerator for all to use, make it feel like home. He is personable and accomodating!
5 on April 21, 2009
My wife and I spend two nights at the After Eight B&B. What a wonderful experience. The service was attentive and personal but not in your face. The rooms were immaculate. Nice extra touches like chocolates in bowls, a jigsaw on the table, local newspapers and magazines. Robert's breakfast was sumptous. We had originally booked for one night, but it was so good we stayed an extra. Andrew & Jane - Jamieson Australia

The After Eight B&B was an oasis right in the middle of town. Our needs were met above and beyond. Wonderful hosts!

We booked an apartment in the "cottage". Really spacious; ideal for 2 couples to stay, with own kitchen and little living room. The apartment was great; the beds very very comfy (slept like a rock). The interior walls are a bit on the thin side, but for sleeping isn't a problem. Everything is clean and tidy. The breakfast was a feast in itself! Bob the landlord is very helpful in recommending places to visit. Quite an experience, but also not necessarily cheap. But still good value! Highly to be recommended!

The service here was excellent. the breakfasts were worth raving over, and the room was glorious. My new husband and I are so happy we chose to honeymoon here! We will definitely be back!

We had a wonderful time! My husband surprised me on our 10th wedding anniversary when he, with no warning, had packed my stuff and said "Let's go...got a surprise for you." He pulled into After Eight B&B and I was so surprised. It was beautiful. We stayed the weekend with wonderful food, an inn that was absolutely wonderful and an extremely beautiful outside. Robert is a great host as well as pretty good cook I must say. Great anniversary!

Lovely B&B in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country. I especially enjoyed the lightning bugs and evening primroses. The breakfast were outstanding and the owner very helpful with sight seeing plans.
5 on July 28, 2008
I have made this B&B a part of my budget. It is an annual must, both alone and with my family. the food, atmosphere and accommodations are comforting, welcoming and relaxing! It's become my personal and private oasis. Bob is the host with the most and he contributes to our looking forward to our stay.
5 on July 23, 2008
We found a little bit of heaven at this wonderful B&B. In a beautiful historic setting we found a wonderful (and knowledgeable) inn-keeper who made our stay so relaxing. We'll go back for certain!
4.8 on July 22, 2008
My husband, my aunt and myself stayed there last summer in one of the cottages. It was beautifully decorated, extremely clean and very homey. Bob was so friendly, went out of his way to help us with reservations, and just made us feel at home. He is a wonderful cook, and made us excellent breakfasts. I can't say enough about him and his Inn. It was a real pleasure staying there and we will return again.

For the first time in 34 years of vacations, we went back to the same place two years in a row. The friendliness, attention to detail and the breakfasts made our stays here most enjoyable. A convienent location and gorgeous views highlight this extraordinary find.

Although it was our first visit, staying at After Eight is like coming home to your own place where you have no work but to enjoy its beauty and relax as everything you might want or need is attended to with style. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return. Robert was warm and welcoming, offering great suggestions tailored to our interests and providing a delicious and beautiful breakfast with attention to our special dietary needs. Can't say enough!!

An excellent choice in cleanliness, service, and location for the many sites of the Lancaster area. Breakfast was served promptly and prepared beautifully. The furnishings and rooms look fresh and inviting. The ground gardens were abundant with colorful flowers and plant life with a quaint gazebo thrown in for good measure. Highly recommended. The host was cordial and friendly to all who arrived during our visit of three days.

It was a very romantic and memorable experience!

Being newlyweds and just starting out, a 3-day weekend at a B&B seemed a rathr "luxurious" treat for us to indulge in. However, my family thoughtfully gave us some gift certificates to BedandBreakfast.com so we were able to afford the trip. This was so far above & beyond what we even hoped for - it was unreal. The innkeeper is fantastic and accomodating, the inn is adorable and relaxing, and the food is WONDERFUL! It's a perfect setting, close to everything in Lancaster County you could want. We will DEFINITELY be back!
5 on July 22, 2007
I would have to say this is the BEST B&B I have ever stayed at! This weekend was a mother and daughter get away!! Robert is an EXCELLENT cook! The room was very clean & comfortable. The service was very outstanding! I will recommend this B&B to all my friends and family for future stays in Pennsylvania... EXCELLENT!!
