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.

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

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.

Everything was very nice. We really had a good time.

Pleasant Surroundings with Excellent Service

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.

Delightful B&B

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.

great escape

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)

Innkeeper Response
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.

Beautiful B&B with a Wonderful Host

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!
