Last year my boyfriend and I stayed at the Amber room. At the time we were amazed with the service and attention to detail given to make our stay amazing. A year later we still talk about the fantastic experience we had and agree it is the best B&B experience either of us has ever had. We keep trying to find another gem like this, but so far haven't been able to find anything comparable. The comfortable accommodation, gracious staff, delicious breakfast, and general thoughtfulness and attention to detail in every aspect make me recommend them again and again.

Breakfast great, bed not so great

2.8 on July 28, 2015

We found the property to be clean, boasting an exceptional staff, remarkable presentation of the breakfast courses (4 in all) and the price to be reasonable. Unfortunately the only way to maintain a comfortable sleeping temperature in the room was to run both the air conditioner and the overhead fan. The air conditioner is extremely loud, which resulted in very little sleep and a need for ear plugs. The mattress was at a distinct grade, leaving one feeling they were sleeping on an incline. Breakfast was served promptly at 8:30 AM, with no exception or flexibility (we would suggest 7-8:30, perhaps), leaving the tourist to the rigid schedule of the establishment. They were willing to pack a travel box for those wishing to leave before 8:30AM. The accessibility was very poor. There are multiple layers of steps beginning from your entrance via the parking lot to finally reaching your room. You are traveling through various rooms to reach the stairs and although both of us are considered physically fit it was quite the stair climbing ordeal. Two trippers in the entrance brick sidewalk - definitely in need of re-laying. Most challenging is aiming your vehicle through the beautiful stone pillars at the entranceway to the steep hill to get to the residence. Seriously, we just barely made it with a Honda CRV. Although we travel down to the area frequently we would never stay at the Amethyst Inn (one of the Adamstown Inn properties) again.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. Receiving feedback from our guests is very important to us. We strive to give our guests the best experience possible, and we are saddened to hear that you were not happy with the feather-bed topping the Serta’s Perfect Sleeper mattress. If there are ever any issues with your experience while staying with us, we urge you to bring it to our attention immediately so that we can promptly make it right. This summer has been very hot and humid, and it can be difficult to keep the rooms a comfortable temperature without having the air conditioner running. We would have been happy to have offered you different accommodations that may have better suited your needs, both with the temperature and the style of bed. We would also like to thank you for bringing to our attention the 2 bricks that needed adjusted on our sidewalk. We took care of the issue immediately, as our guests safety is a major concern to us. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your breakfasts. Again, we would like to thank you for providing us with feedback so that we can always give the best experience possible for our guests.

A GRANDE B&B to rest and relax at for any occasion

5 on April 13, 2015

The names of the rooms are a true designation of the 'GEM' this find proved to be. Each has its own distinction and makes a new visitor want to go back and experience another on their next visit. Tom was as pleasing a host as was Elizabeth's 4-course breakfast ensemble. His tales of other properties makes me want to travel to them to see their beauty too. Upon entering earlier than our given check-in time, which we found extremely courteous and appealing to any customer, the downstairs area smelled of fresh baked goodies for the 'guest'. I emphasize 'guest' because we truly felt more at home here than at any hotel/motel can provide. The ambiance set the tone for our visit and will be a lasting memory for "Beau and his Lady", one that we will take with us into eternity. So if you are in the Adamstown area and are searching for that 'Special place' to just get-away, make this B&B your first call and pray they still have a room at their 'home away from home' delight. One item I will advise on is be sure to take the smaller vehicle as it is a tad tight driving between the stone pillars that mark the driveway entrance or you might need to park on the street level. Thanks again Tom, Wanda and Liz for making our 'Heavenly' night that much more incredible. We'll be back and who knows how soon that may be. God bless and may He always watch over all your places.

25th Anniversary Weekend

4.6 on June 09, 2014

What a wonderful place to spend our 25th Anniversary weekend. We stayed in the Amber room, enjoyoed the 2 person jacuzzi and massage/shower. The hosts were a delight and even accommodated my gluten/wheat free dietary needs. The hosts were knowledgeable about area events, antique shops and dining. The Inn was such a refreshing break from the daily busyness. Would highly recommend it to anyone.

Relaxed & Pampered

5 on June 02, 2014

We experienced the warmth and relaxation we set out for at the Amethyst Inn. The breakfasts were delicious and very creative. The room was so clean and beautifully appointed. A whirlpool jacuzzi, a european multi-jets shower, gas fireplace and huge comfy bed made the room it's own destination. The wide, shaded front porch became the perfect respite for an afternoon book and drink. Everyone made you feel like you were welcome - highly recommend this wonderful inn.
