You couldn't want or expect any place nicer then "The Hurst House". Rich and Bert made you feel like one of the family. Highly recommend it to anyone!

There is a reason the Hurst House B&B gets so many 5 star reviews. IT IS SIMPLY THAT GOOD! Me and my wive have stayed at many Bed and Breakfasts before that were extremely good, but Rich and Bert’s Hurst House was a true gem! It was immaculately clean. It had a 360 degree breathtaking view at the top of the highest hill around Lancaster. Every one of the five rooms had a balcony. The breakfasts that were served by Rich and Bert were second to none. Many B&Bs are converted from older homes, but this one was designed by Rich and Bert them self specifically for a spectacular B&B! The house, along with the room was filled with antiques. If you are trying to decide on a place to stay around Lancaster, PA...JUST BOOK THIS PLACE AFTER YOU ARE DONE READING THIS REVIEW. It will surpass any of your expectations and Rich and Bert will be the icing on the cake!

We couldn't have enjoyed the Hurst House or our hosts more! Their home is exquisite and their hospitality and friendliness was perfect. They thought of everything. Very highly recommend this B&B for a perfect getaway. You'll love the views, too!
Thank you for taking time to write the review. We enjoyed having you and welcome you to come back again.

Their home is one of beauty, sitting on a hill. Looking out over the country side is so peaceful and comforting. So looking forward to our next visit. CK and TK

We stayed in the Bird Paradise Room it was so adorable with a spectacular view of the farms.Our second stay was phenomenal the scenic views, the beautiful weather, this time we got to sit and chat with Bert and Rich and the other couples it was so nice! And can't forget their adorable dog NIgel awww he is so cute! We even went for a walk around the neighborhood and got to see many of the Mennonite families and children they were so nice they would wave and even say hello. Got to see many beautiful horses as well. Can't wait for our next visit in the Fall.
