The Maid's Quarters is an awesome place to stay. Allyson is Great and the cookies are Awesome! My wife and I had such a relaxing stay. Loved it and would definitely return.

Allyson was the perfect hostess. She greeted us at the door and showed us to our room. Room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was delicious.

Setting the standard for other Bed and Breakfasts

My husband and I have never stayed or considered staying a bed and breakfast until our recent trip to Pottsville. Now we realize we have been missing out. The rooms were everything and more than what we would expect from a hotel for a better cost! The breakfast was amazing and the little touches she had around the B&B made it all the more unique and special. From the fresh baked cookies in the room to the decanter of wine with small glasses in the lobby for guests to enjoy. If we are in the area again we will definitely come back!

A Gem of a Bed & Breakfast

4.8 on July 12, 2016

We try to stay at Allyson's Maid's Quarters Bed & Breakfast property whenever we are in Pottsville visiting relatives and friends or doing genealogical research at the library. We try to stay in the room on the top floor which has a small kitchen, sitting room, bathroom and bedroom. The claw foot tub is amazing. We have also stayed in the two rooms on the second floor and they are beautiful also. You share a bathroom, but that is no problem since you'll probably only have two other people staying on that floor at a time. Allyson is one great chef. Her breakfasts are absolutely amazing with all fresh foods. Eggs from a local farmer, fruits and vegetables in season from the area, and your choice of fresh juices, coffee and tea. Allyson has a wonderful imagination and a great palate so anything she cooks tastes great and works on all levels.We particularly enjoy the way the rooms are decorated with many antiques on display. Oh, and lest you think this is a totally old-fashioned property, there is wi-fi throughout, cable TV, and the water pressure is great with plenty of hot water. Try this property, you'll like it.

Lovely little gem in the heart of Pottsville

Really enjoyed our stay at this quaint B&B - excellent location, easy parking, and a fabulous proprietor!

One Great B&B

4.8 on July 08, 2016

My husband and I are always very happy when we are able to stay at Allyson's B&B, the Maid's Quarters when we visit relatives in Pottsville. Don't let the old fashioned look fool you, although this is one of the reasons we stay here. There is wi-fi throughout the property, and satellite television if you want it. Allyson is one of the best, I'm going to use the word "chef's" here, that we have encountered in our many stays at B&B's. The rooms are impeccable, with comfortable beds and a very cozy feel. We have stayed in each of the rooms and if we can, we will reserve the room on the top floor, which is self-contained with two sitting rooms, a small kitchenette and a bedroom with air conditioning units throughout, also ceiling fans. The other two rooms are very comfortable and share a bathroom with a shower, but that is really no problem, considering most of the time you would only be sharing it with two other people. There is plenty of hot water and water pressure throughout the property is very good considering it's age. There are staircases to navigate to each floor, but we are older and we don't have any problems. In addition, Allyson is ready to assist anyone who needs help. Allyson has also been able to strike a deal with the company which owns the parking lots across the street, so you have close, secure parking for your car. As I said above, Allyson is a chef and her choices for your breakfast are healthy, taste great, and varied. You'll have fresh eggs, fresh fruit in season, your choice of beverage (juice, tea, milk, or coffee), perhaps a choice of waffles or pancakes and many other delicious items. Allyson is able to obtain all her foodstuffs from local growers and the eggs are from a farmer in the area (we're talking fresh here). If you're looking for a property with an old look, but up to the minute amenities, this is the one.
