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.

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.

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. Maryann, Hatboro, PA.

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!
4.0 on May 18, 2011
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.

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
5 on August 01, 2010
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!
5 on April 25, 2010
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.

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!

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.

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!

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.

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!!
