Delightful stay

4.8 on September 17, 2018

We had a delightful three days. Susan did an excellent job subbing for Robert. We were conveniently located for many attractions. Enjoyed doing the jigsaw puzzles in the evening.

Beautiful place!

4.8 on September 11, 2018

We stayed 3 nights here and had a wonderful time. The breakfast was outstanding and we loved the extra touches such as fresh cookies, drinks, candy and fruit included in the room price and available any time of the day. The entire place was immaculate. If I had one complaint it would be our room was on the front and we had a bit of traffic noise. I would most certainly recommend this place and would stay again if I return to this area.

Lovely B&B

4.6 on September 11, 2018

We had a very nice stay. The room was delightfully decorated. The entire house is lovely.

Great to get away!

5 on September 09, 2018

My husband and I have stayed at many B & Bs throughout our marriage! This was one of the best. Many amenities provided. Thank you to Susuan covering for Robert. Excellent job!

Labor Day Holiday

5 on September 05, 2018

We stayed at After Eight B & B for the first time this year. We were so pleased with our accommodations and our breakfast was outstanding. Robert was so pleasant and witty. A very charming place and host. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and plan to come back on our next visit.


5 on September 04, 2018

Clean, comfortable and delicious. We plan to return annually.

The best Days were spent with you..

4.8 on September 04, 2018

We were so happy to spend our time away at the After Eight B&B again. Always a delightful visit, with a great host who makes great breakfasts! A beautiful house to stay in, with every detail taken care of. Couldn't want for more - a warm,comfortable, inviting spot in beautiful country. Just hold our room, Robert - we'll be back. Best Wishes, Estelle & Ernie

It's all in the details!

5 on September 01, 2018

We love Robert's After Eight! We have been there twice. I feel as if I'm repeating what others wrote, but I must. Gorgeous room. Wonderful water pressure in the shower. The towels were extremely soft, and the bed was amazingly comfortable. Excellent breakfast. Robert's gift of hospitality shone. Nothing will keep us away next year, though the truck noise on Friday night was annoying (we were in a front room) and I wish the towels were the really, really, really big ones.

Weekend Get-a-way

5 on August 29, 2018

This Bed and Breakfast was fantastic! We enjoyed everything about it- the host, the room, the vibes, and the food! We will definitely return!!

Another wonderful stay

4.8 on August 27, 2018

This was our second visit to After Eight in the last few years. For this visit, my husband and I booked three rooms. One for my parents, one for my brother and the last for us. Everyone had a memorable time. My family's first comments were about how well-maintained the rooms were, how generous the host was, and the cleanliness of the property. During our two-day stay, we were able to do the recommended activities and dine at the recommended restaurants that Robert, the innkeeper, suggested. Every recommendation was fantastic. The bed and breakfast is ideally located on the highway, which is great for all of the excursions during the day but might be loud at night when the trucks go by for people who aren't used to being by busy roads. I brought earplugs and I was able to sleep through the night. The website is a good representation of rooms, though they are even nicer in person. We will be visiting again in the near future.

Love this B&B

5 on August 23, 2018

We are repeat guests, so we were expecting a great experience and we were not disappointed. Robert greeted us, check in was easy, our requested room was ready and immaculate. Breakfasts were amazing and Robert’s stories were a fun way to start our day. We took advantage of the puzzle table as it was raining much of the time. The grounds were lovely and thriving in the rain. The dining area has coffee, tea, cocoa available all day, nice to come back to after a busy day shopping. We will be back again when here for Sight and Sound theatre productions.

LOVE After 8!

5 on August 15, 2018

Love staying at After Eight whenever we visit Lancaster! The rooms are comfortable and clean. The food is plentiful and healthy, thanks Luis! Robert is funny and very easy to talk to. Took my In-laws this last weekend and they really enjoyed it too and are planning on going back. Robert is very knowledgeable about local activities. And meeting the other guests is great fun too. Have met many wonderful people while visiting.

Clean Comfortable Friendly

5 on August 11, 2018

Loved this B&B! My husband and I and my sister stayed here. We had our room and my sister had her room. The price of both combined for 2 nights and 3 days was comparable to one room at other B&B's. It was extremely clean and comfortable. Robert is the perfect host, knowledgeable and funny! Breakfast was awesome and yummy! I would stay again just for the breakfast! Located just minutes away from Sight and Sound, eateries and things to do. Lovely gardens and fountain to walk through. Would definitely stay here again!

Everything you'd want in a B&B, and more...

5 on August 09, 2018

Had a fabulous 3 night stay at After Eight B&B in Lancaster County. The place was immaculate and attention to detail was obvious everywhere you looked. The room was clean and very comfortable, and breakfast was gourmet with a little touch of comedy thrown in from Robert, our innkeeper. I highly recommend After Eight B&B to anyone looking for a world class B&B in Lancaster County PA.

Wonderful Bed and Breakfast

4.6 on August 08, 2018

Enjoyed our stay so much. So relaxing and peaceful. Robert, the innkeeper and host recommendations were excellent. We went to see Jesus at the Sight and Sound theater which was a less than ten minute drive from the house. Breakfast was wonderful and a ton of fun. Robert made us feel like we were at home. This is a five star bed and breakfast and I’m loooking forward to going back. April


4.4 on August 07, 2018

We enjoyed our stay, the landscaping is absolutely beautiful, very relaxing. The breakfasts were delicious, it was home away from home.

Great getaway

5 on July 22, 2018

My husband and I stayed here for a long weekend and we had a great stay - the breakfast was fantastic and Robert was super nice. Will absolutely revisit again!

Wonderful he relaxing

5 on July 12, 2018

This B&B is a great place to stay! It is quite deceptive from the outside, when you go around back the place is huge! With many options for a person, a couple, or families to stay. It is wonderfully decorated, the common rooms and the bedrooms! Bathrooms are terrific! The food is outstanding and the service impeccable. Many spots to sit outside and watch the sunrise or set, or just relax and read. I am looking forward to our next stay

Wonderful place to stay

4.8 on July 12, 2018

After Eight is a terrific place to stay!! Very deceiving looking from the outside, it’s quite a large property accommodating different types of rooming choices. The rooms were absolutely beautiful! Everything looked practically new, very clean and wonderfully decorated! Very close to all the major places to go and see. The food was outstanding and we enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning.

Relaxing and Enjoying

5 on July 12, 2018

Robert at After Eight Bed & Breakfast makes your stay enjoyable. His breakfast are to die for. He entertains you during breakfast. The rooms are wonderful and homey. He makes your stay comfortable to the point you do not want to go home. We love Rob and always enjoy our stay there. We always go back every year.

Highly recommended

5 on July 08, 2018

We recently had our very first B&B experience at After Eight for a birthday trip. We normally stay in hotels. It was such a pleasant experience that we returned a couple of weeks later for our anniversary! The room was lovely with a private bath and very, very clean (most important aspect of traveling). Robert was personable and informative, but never intrusive. We felt right at home the entire time. Breakfast was delicious and beautifully presented. We highly recommend staying at after eight B&B.

Home Away From Home

5 on July 06, 2018

.We really enjoyed our stay at the After Eight Bed and Breakfast. We were greeted by the fresh aroma of freshly baked chocolate chip cookies! They were delicious by the way!! The Bed and Breakfast is immaculately clean and beautifully decorated! Robert was a gracious host, very informative, and gave us ideas of things to do why were in the area. We did not want for anything and breakfast was delicious!! We are looking forward to a return visit!!

Perfect Getaway

5 on July 05, 2018

My wife and I have been visiting the Lancaster area for the past five years and we always stay at After Eight Bed and Breakfast. We love the relaxing atmosphere, the beautiful property, and the tastefully decorated interior and rooms. Robert is the perfect host and and we always look forward to his delicious breakfasts and his jokes and stories. The B&B is also very close to most sights and attractions. Overall, wonderful experience!

Amish Country Stay

5 on July 04, 2018

My husband and I were passing through the area so our visit was only 1 night, ---- but one very pleasant night! Robert's home is nicely furnished and absolutely SPOTLESS! The breakfast was just perfect, and served with a bit of humor from Robert and other guests, it made a great start to our morning. Will definitely book another stay with Robert when we're in the area! The Battles Alabama

First B&B Experience

4.6 on July 02, 2018

This was our first visit to a B&B and it exceeded our expectations. It was a beautiful old house and very nicely decorated. Relaxing!

Weekend Getaway at After Eight

4.8 on June 20, 2018

This was my second stay which I very much looked forward to after the first. Stayed in both cottages which are excellent. Felt like home. Food was excellent! Location is great. Robert is a fine host. Will stay here in the future.

Great Stay!!

4.8 on June 20, 2018

Had a great stay at After Eight! Breakfast was wonderful, and Robert was very entertaining! Room was very nice and we had a balcony which we sat out on and had a evening nightcap! Grounds were beautiful and well kept. Bed was just a little soft for me, but that won't stop us from going back again! Looking forward to next year, and a longer stay!

Wonderful Place To Stay!

5 on June 20, 2018

This was the first B & B my husband and I stayed in and we absolutely loved it! Truly home away from home! It is beautifully decorated, has delicious food, and we loved the gardens and the peacefulness of the back yard. Also enjoyed the puzzle in the living room, which allowed me to totally relax while my husband napped :-) We will be back and would recommend this B & B to anyone. Thanks Robert for a most enjoyable weekend!

After Eight memories

5 on June 16, 2018

Having bought one of the B&B cookbooks, I am still trying to replicate the sensational breakfasts that were offered by our host, Robert to no avail. Only solution is to return to this quaint, delightful B&B sometime soon. Our room was beautifully furnished as were the common areas. There was a warm and friendly atmosphere throughout. We were pleasantly surprised to find that our bathroom had a shower for two! Imagine that! Robert was a wealth of information offering suggestions for dining, sightseeing and the creamiest ice cream in Pennsylvania! We were pleasantly surprised to obtain tickets to the amazing Sight and Sound production that was nearby. Our only regret was that we had to leave after two nights, but we will return!

Our Anniversary

5 on June 13, 2018

We had a great stay,beautiful grounds, room was very clean, food was great! We really enjoyed celebrating our 33rd Anniversary!

Another amazing stay!

5 on June 03, 2018

This was our third stay at After Eight . The cleanliness and comfort of the rooms and property , beauty of the grounds, delicious breakfasts and Robert's humor and hospitality make this our first choice when visiting Lancaster County.

For the skeptic about B & B 's

5 on May 26, 2018

I was very skeptical about B & B's! But After Eight totally changed my mind 100% ! The whole place is spotless, the rooms are beautiful, all the amenities are available to you including WI-FI and TV. It's so relaxing inside and out, the grounds are beautiful to just sit and relax. Robert the innkeeper is a sweetheart very accommodating and even tells a story or two at breakfast which are very funny! And of course the breakfast 's are delicious!! You definitely won't be disappointed! I know I will definitely be going back! Loved it! Pam & Michael from New Jersey

Lovely, Relaxing Getaway

4.6 on May 25, 2018

My husband and I so enjoyed our weekend getaway. Robert's attention to detail was very evident from when we walked in. My husband was so impressed with the cleanliness of the whole property. The gardens were so beautiful. Robert checked us in. He then walked us through the dining area (to show us the coffee, tea, hot chocolate, soft drinks and snacks available at any time.) He shared common areas where games, puzzles, and DVDs were available to guests. Our room was lovely and just what we expected from the thorough description available online. There was such attention to detail evident in the toiletries provided and in way the toilet paper was folded. The room was a bit noisy because we were located near the common area. On a future visit, my husband and I will probably select another room that is further away from the living room but this is the only place we will stay because it was so nice. The way Robert took the time to recommend things to do and restaurants to see make this bed and breakfast stand out from other hotels and B&Bs. Breakfast was amazing. We have been talking about it for days. We kept very busy during our short time in Lancaster so we will have to go back and stay at After Eight!

Simply The Best

5 on May 24, 2018

When traveling, B&B's are our first choice for lodging. When we visit Lancaster, After Eight is our first choice : ) When our son attended college in Lancaster, we stayed in several of the wonderful B&B's in the area and one weekend my wife made a reservation at After Eight. Wow : ) After a few minutes we knew this would be our home away from home when visiting Lancaster. Robert is an amazing owner/innkeeper of this beautiful inn and takes great pride in his home and business. Every room is tastefully decorated and well maintained. He helps to make you feel right at home and is very knowledgeable in all things Lancaster. Coffee, tea, water, soft drinks and snacks are always available and the breakfast is out of this world. Lancaster has many wonderful B&B's but After Eight is "simply the best".

pleasant suprise

5 on May 23, 2018

was not sure what to expect but was very happy with all accommodations. would defiantly stay with them again upon return to the area.

Quick stay over for a couple nights away from the kids!

4.8 on May 16, 2018

Host tells stories during breakfast; pretty funny and told in a fairly dry manner. Extremely friendly. And Breakfast was great!

Excellent Bed & Breakfast

5 on May 14, 2018

We recently stayed 3 nights at the After Eight B & B. The rooms are tastefully decorated, immaculate and comfortable. The breakfasts are always a treat and Robert the host is a pleasure. We've been coming here for many years and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else when visiting the Lancaster Co, area.

Very accommodating stay

4.2 on May 11, 2018

My wife and I and her parents stayed at After Eight Bed and Breakfast and had a wonderful time. My Mother-in-Law has a very restrictive diet and Robert, the inn-keeper, bent over backwards to accommodate her diet. The sitting room was very comfortable, and had a great game table set up with a puzzle, apparently this is a thing here, and we spent a nice evening relaxing and working on the puzzle. The rooms were very nice, with very spacious private bathrooms. I would highly recommend this inn if you are planning to stay in the Lancaster county area.

Excellent stay at "After Eight Bed & Breakfast

5 on May 09, 2018

My husband and I stayed at this lovely bed and breakfast in the Amish country in Lancaster, PA. Robert, the host, was very welcoming and gave us a tour of the inn when we arrived and answered all of our questions. Actually, after touring the inn and seeing some of the other rooms that were available, we fell in love with the deluxe suite and switched from our originally booked room to this very comfortable suite, which had a king size bed, separate sitting room with sofa bed and another TV, and a 2-person jacuzzi in the large bathroom. All of the rooms at the inn are beautifully decorated but we decided to splurge on this lovely suite. Robert was a wonderful host and had many recommendations for restaurants and things to do and see in the nearby area. The breakfasts were very delicious and satisfying. We are looking forward to another stay in the near future and would highly recommend this B&B if you are visiting the area.

Very happy here!

5 on April 17, 2018

Wonderful and reasonable place to stay. Breakfasts were delicious! Everything is clean and very homey feeling. Robert was friendly and easy to talk to.

Wonderful place to stay!

5 on April 13, 2018

We have stayed in this B&B many times. The host Robert is welcoming, efficient, and very friendly! The B&B is tastefully decorated and immaculately cleaned. We have stayed in a few different rooms and have always been very comfortable. This is a wonderful place to stay and Robert is the best host!


5 on March 10, 2018

Robert was an excellent host. Breakfast was unique and delicious. Super clean and comfortable rooms with a very relaxing atmosphere. We will definitely return and hopefully soon. Our first B&B experience and it could not have been better. Robert's cheerful personality made our conversations enjoyable. Several open rooms to enjoy other customers company as well. Everyone else seemed to enjoy their stay as well.

Wonderful Getaway

5 on March 08, 2018

My husband and our son and daughter-in-law, thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at the After Eight. I have many food allergies and was delightfully surprised how accommodating Robert was to all of my needs! He is the perfect host. Many of the places we wanted to visit were closed but we had a wonderful time anyway. The rooms we had were very clean and comfortable. The last time my husband and I were here was 2004, but we'll definitely go back again much sooner!

A Wonderful Get Away

5 on March 02, 2018

A lovely bed and breakfast located in Lancaster County close to many enjoyable attractions. The rooms are tastefully decorated in county style. Breakfasts are delicious, and the host, Robert Hall, is friendly and always ready to suggest places to dine, as well as, local attractions. Patricia Hosler

Perfect Getaway!

5 on March 02, 2018

I recently spent a solo weekend at After Eight, and am already planning when I can go back! Everything about this bed & breakfast is exemplary. My room was beyond clean and super comfortable, breakfast was delicious and plentiful, and the host Robert is a genuinely wonderful person. From the moment he greets you at the door, it's obvious he's in the exact profession he is meant to be. My weekend was different than most, meant for recharging, refocusing, and getting back to work on a project I've been putting off for way too long. I spent the weekend in my room, coming out only for coffee, breakfast, snacks, and the necessary trips for dinner. I got everything and more out of my weekend, thanks to Robert and this wonderful bed & breakfast. I honestly cannot wait to go back. If you're thinking about booking a stay, stop thinking and just do it. I promise, you won't be disappointed!

B& B was Perfect R&R !!

5 on February 23, 2018

We enjoyed the house for two days by ourselves, having the opportunity to get to know the owner , Robert, and what a pleasant person. We enjoyed every meal and the conversation was fantastic too. Robert shared some suggestions for dinner along with fun sites to visit . Clean, well kept, and great hospitality! We had a great time and look to return soon ! Thank you !

After Eight is the best!

5 on January 06, 2018

We have been going to After Eight for seven years or more. Robert is always the perfect host. Rooms are comfortable and clean, breakfast is always the best. Spring and fall is my favorite time to enjoy his back porch to relax after a busy day of shopping. New Years Eve is always a hoot at this B&B.

After Eight Bed and Breakfast

5 on January 06, 2018

My husband and I spent 2 nights here in mid December. We have been coming to this B&B for over 10 years. We love the area and wouldn't stay anywhere else. It's close to all attractions, outlets and great places to eat. Bob, the host is very helpful, funny and serves a wonderful gourmet breakfast. We always feel so comfortable there. The home is beautifully decorated, very clean and cozy. If you've never stayed at a B&B, consider staying here. You won't be disappointed.

Season #7

5 on January 05, 2018

Carol and I have enjoyed Roberts' hospitality for the past seven years and have NEVER had the least bit of a problem. We venture to After Eight, twice each year, and never would think of going anywhere else. As the old saying goes: if it ain't broke- don't fix it!!! Kudos to Robert, the inn keeper.

A super place to stay!

5 on January 04, 2018

We have stayed here many times and considert this one the best B&B we have stayed in. The host is very hospitable and knowledgeable. His place is always well kept and decorated for the season Robert, the host, serves the best breakfasts!

New Years 2017-2018

5 on January 04, 2018

The innkeeper Robert is the best. Very accommodating. This is our 3rd stay and always enjoyable. He has a murder mystery night with dinner. It is the best New Years we can spend. Don't have to drive anywhere, or eat at a crowed over priced restaurant. This is the best value for the money. Meet really nice people. This is a 1st rated place as far was I am concerned. Thank you Robert.

B&B can't be topped!

5 on December 19, 2017

My husband and I have been visiting After Eight B&B for almost 12 years. We won't stay anywhere else when we come to Lancaster. It has all the comforts of home. The house is immaculate, beautifully decorated, relaxing and near all our favorite shops and restaurants. There are homemade baked goods, snacks and beverages available to guests throughout the day and night. Robert (Bob), the host is very friendly, helpful and accommodating. He also has a great sense of humor. He makes a beautiful gourmet breakfast each morning. We always have a wonderful time and that's why we've been coming back again and again.

amazing experience

5 on December 11, 2017

We went there for thanks giving holiday. Since we liked a lot extend our holiday one more day! First of all hotel has amazing location if you are looking for Amish village experience. Robert, the owner, extremely kind, nice and helpful like the other staff. It was as if being at home. Best part for me to start the day with really delicious real breakfast. I believe I will be there again! thanks for everything

B & B in Laancaster

My husband and I love staying at The After Eight B&B. Rob the owner is wonderful he makes your stay warm and relaxing.The house is being at home or maybe even more comfortable then being at home. I'd rather stay at this B&B then any where else. Lorelei Eberly Dundalk,md.

delicious breakfast

nicely appointed room. great breakfast both days we stayed. especially enjoyed the German apple pancakes.

The Best!

5 on November 27, 2017

Robert continues to provide the very best in accommodations, from dining to sleeping in one of his beautifully furnished Victorian rooms. Breakfasts are always a delight to wake up to, and the community puzzles are always available for a late-nite way to relax after a great day around town. As always, will be back soon...Estelle & Ernie

Best B & B in Lancaster.

5 on November 09, 2017

Just look at the reviews and see that the comments tell it all. Robert has a beautiful home which is immaculately clean and ready for a great place to lay your head. Excellent food and hospitality. It was our fourth visit but not the last. Treat yourself to a comfortable stay.

After Eight B&B

Beautifully decorated, delicious breakfast, grounds are wonderful. Inn keeper was very nice!

Wonderful B&B

5 on October 30, 2017

My husband and I stayed at After Eight this past week. Robert is a jewel. . The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. The entire stay was extremely restful and wonderful-quiet and peaceful.

Nice time in the Amish Country

4.4 on October 22, 2017

Great time at After Eight Bed and Breakfast. We really enjoyed sitting in the parlor in the evenings reading, drinking wine and working on a puzzle. The food was outstanding! Great Location for visiting Lancaster County. Only negative was we had a room facing US 30....truck noise all night. Get a room in the back or bring your white noise machine! We will visit again....

Love After 8 BNB! Highly recommend!

5 on October 19, 2017

This was our second time staying. Brought my mother and Aunt with us this time. They really enjoyed themselves. Robert is the BEST host! Everything you could think to ask for and more. Will be going back as often as we can.

A Wonderful Weekend

5 on October 18, 2017

My husband and I have stayed at After Eight many times in the past and always enjoyed ourselves. This time I brought my sister for a visit and she fell in love with After Eight as well. You couldn't ask for a more friendly host. Robert does all he can to make your stay a delightful experience. The Inn is decorated very tastefully and as clean as a whistle. Give After Eight a try, you won't be disappointed.

Absolute Top Notch B&B

5 on October 16, 2017

What a wonderful place. Our host Robert was so charming and such a good cook with his magnificent breakfasts. We stayed in the porch room and truly enjoyed sitting out on the porch and relaxing. The grounds and gazebo are magnificent and the bed, sheets, pillows, etc were great. Robert's breakfast was really something to look forward too. We will definitely stay there again. Mary Ann & Dan Connors

Outstanding B&B

5 on October 09, 2017

I assess B&B's on the basis of a number of things including the host. You can't find someone better than Robert at After Eight. We had a super weekend and will definitely return.

2nd Stay and Counting!

5 on October 04, 2017

When my husband and I got stuck in traffic on the way to this wonderful Inn recently, Robert couldn't be more gracious in working with us for a later check-in and then proceeded to provide us with a list of great restaurant choices since we were coming in hungry! (We visited two of them during the course of our stay and were more than pleased!) Considerations such as these, as well as the ambience of the rooms, the graciousness of the host, the superb breakfasts and attention to every detail is why we are return guests, and will no doubt be back when our travels once again bring us to the Lancaster area!

Excellence in Gettysburg

5 on September 27, 2017

This was not only very clean, but well maintained. The grounds around the house were beautiful. The inn keeper was most hospitable and helpful in directing us to fine eating and tourism in the area.

Location, Location, Location

4.8 on September 27, 2017

Hi. We stayed for two nights at Robert's After Eight. The location of this B&B is terrific. It truly was in the center of everything we wanted to experience. The room was very nice (corner room with a fantastic two-person shower.) Robert's breakfasts were not to be missed--delicious! We plan to go back in the near future.

Excellent BNB

5 on September 24, 2017

This is the third time staying in the After Eight Bed & Breakfast. I am Gluten intolerant and Robert made sure my breakfast was Gluten free. The place is clean and always fresh. We love going there and will return next year. We always go in September for my Birthday. Thank you so much Robert for making our stay special.


5 on September 19, 2017

I stayed at the After 8 B & B with my 90 year old mother. They did everything they could to make our stay comfortable and easy for my mom to get around. They met her dietary needs at every breakfast; the breakfasts were to die for delicious and the atmosphere was very homey and comfortable. The owner is very knowledgeable about the surrounding area and has excellent suggestions for dining and site seeing. The beds are so comfortable I didn't want to get up. My husband and I will be staying at this B & B next year when we come to visit --- and we live in Montana.

Lovely B&B

4.8 on September 11, 2017

Recently spent 3 nights in the private corner room at the inn. Robert was an excellent host and pride of ownership was visible both in the inn as well as the meticulous grounds. Robert gave us wonderful suggestions for sightseeing and dining. I enjoyed rekindling my love of jigsaw puzzles. The breakfasts were scrumptious and so filling that we only snacked until dinner. We enjoyed our trip to Amish Country and hope to return.

A Great Place to Stay!

5 on September 09, 2017

We have stayed at this excellent B&B many times and always enjoy our stay here. Robert, the host, advertises it as "your home away from home in Lancaster County" and it truly has become that! The house is beautiful, comfortable, and immaculately clean. Robert could not be more friendly, welcoming, informative, and hospitable. He aims to please! His breakfasts are wonderful, too. We always look forward to our return visits!

1st rate place

4.2 on September 05, 2017

Very clean and neat ,very good breakfast

An excellent place to stay

5 on September 05, 2017

Enjoyed our stay at After Eight B&B. Robert was an excellent host. The breakfast meal was outstanding. I would recommend this B&B to anyone staying in the Lancaster area. It is an excellent location for all the attractions.


5 on August 29, 2017

Enjoyed a very relaxing 3 day stay. The hospitality provided by Robert was superb. The location was central to a host of local Lancaster area attractions. Breakfast was great as was the very comfortable room. Definitely would make a return visit.

Very charming stay

5 on August 26, 2017

Outstanding place to stay. Great rooms and great breakfast served personally by Robert. Beautiful garden with a nice terrace. We loved the puzzels.

After 8 B&B

Everything at the B&B was great. We were greeted with a friendly smile. Breakfast was excellent and the room was perfect!!

Very nice Sehr sehr schön

Meine Mutter hatte im "After Eight Bed & Breakfast" vom 15.07. bis 17.07.17 ein Souterrain gebucht. Angereist sind wir zu dritt; Mutter, Vater, Kind. Uns hat die Wohnung sehr gut gefallen, besonders der Garten, die große und natürliche Wiese haben mir sehr gut gefallen. Die Wohnung war perfekt eingerichtet und in der Küche war alles nötige vorhanden, was mann so braucht.Das Frühstück, welches wir aus zeitlichen Gründen leider nur einmal vor Ort genießen konnten, war vorzüglich. Ich fand es total lecker, ein "Crumble" aus Ei mit Crannberys - keine Ahnung, bei uns in Deutschland gibt es so etwas gar nicht. Allgemein war das Frühstück toll, verschiedene Kaffeesorten und Kapseln in verschiedenen Geschmacksrichtungen. Es gab sogar aromatisierte Kaffeesahne, z. B. Haselnuss, soetwas gibt es in Deutschland auch nicht. Als wir Sonntag früh zeitig weiterfahren mussten; wir waren auf USA - Rundreise, bekamen wir noch ein Lunchpacket.Mir hat es sehr gut gefallen und ich komme gern wieder. Ina Vogel

Our first B&B stay ever and it was awesome!

5 on August 07, 2017

This was our first B&B stay. I don't think it could have been any better! Robert, the innkeeper, is doing a great job. We felt welcomed, the room was very nice and spotlessly clean as was the inn, and breakfast was delicious. We enjoyed the lovely landscaping, as well as the many activities the area has to offer. We will definitely be back!

Highly recommended

5 on July 31, 2017

I highly recommend staying at this B&B. Robert is so welcoming and gave some great recommendations on the best places to go. The food was sensational and it was in such a great location, close to everything.

Very refreshing and satisfying stay at After Eight

5 on July 29, 2017

The house and grounds are so nice and well kept. We enjoyed the welcoming atmosphere, and appreciated the freedom to enjoy a (provided) snack and late night beverage while relaxing in the comfortable living/sitting area. Breakfast was superb. Robert was an attentive and thoughtful and helpful host. No question we would come back again!

Excellent choice for B&B

5 on July 26, 2017

This B&B exceeded my expectations. It was my second choice not being able to get in to my first choice. However, it must have been fate. Our room was much larger than what the picture made it look. Our bathroom was great with a full sized standing shower. The decorations and paint is beautiful and flawless--like out of a House Beautiful magazine. Very clean and meticulously kept. Robert, the owner/host was very attentive and has thought of everything from having a refrigerator available for guest use to homemade cookies and a variety of beverages available 24/7. Location is easy access to all Lancaster area attractions. Value is excellent!

Wouldn't Stay Anywhere Else

5 on July 19, 2017

Have stayed at After Eight a number of times. Robert is a fantastic host. The rooms are clean and have everything you need. Breakfast is always a treat. Enjoy our stay very much. Looking forward to our next visit.

Very nice B&B with a very nice owner

4.4 on July 14, 2017

Everything I look for in a B&B. The house is lovely, the place immaculate. The host, Robert, is as personable as you could hope to find, and very helpful with anything we asked. Oh, and the breakfasts were quite good. Whether you're looking for a place to relax or a launching point for your visit to Lancaster, you won't be disappointed.

Nice Stay

4.6 on July 10, 2017

We spent two nights at the inn while visiting Lancaster county. The room, inn and grounds were lovely. Robert was a great host--very friendly, helpful and a great cook. Unfortunately our room was close to the highway and the traffic noise never let up all night. Not recommended for light sleepers. Also the first night the A/C went out and it was very uncomfortable. Robert jumped right on it the next morning and had it fixed pronto.

best B&B in Lancaster

5 on July 02, 2017

Robert, you make everyone feel as if this B&B is their home. It is so relaxing and well decorated. As always we look for the puzzle as we love doing puzzles during the winter months. Your breakfasts are phenomenal as always and you attention to everyone's needs in beyond reproach. Kenny and Sandy

Perfect Getaway Location

5 on June 27, 2017

This was our second stay in the Candlelight room at the After Eight B&B. My husband and I visit Lancaster several times a year, and now that we've discovered After Eight, finding a great place to stay is no longer an issue. The room is beautiful, the bed extremely comfortable and the bathroom spacious. We love the delicious breakfasts and snacks available all day. Innkeeper Robert is friendly and helpful, and has a great selection of menus from local restaurants. Thank you, Robert, for your efforts in maintaining this beautiful and amazingly clean place!

Wonderful B & B With Fabulous breakfast

5 on June 18, 2017

Our stay was delightful. The back porch and patio look out on a beautiful garden, then onto lovely Amish farm country. Just wish we had had more time to enjoy the garden. Don't know when we'll make it back since we live in Texas, but certainly highly recommend it.

Five times and counting

5 on June 17, 2017

My wife and I like to visit the area and Robert's B&B when we can get away for a few days. Robert always comes up with new attractions to check out. This time it was a little known about grain mill a short distance away. Our last review was Sept. 2016. This time we were hosted on June 4 thru 7-- another great time. I'll repeat the same advice.... Go there! You'll be happy you did. Mickey and Sandy Conlee

Perfect Anniversary Weekend Getaway

5 on June 14, 2017

After Eight is our go-to B&B when we are in Lancaster. We were thankful to find this wonderful B&B several years ago and have spent many weekends enjoying Roberts hospitality. This past weekend we celebrated our wedding anniversary and as always we were not disappointed. The rooms are bright, clean and comfy, the breakfasts delicious and the grounds spectacular. Robert is the perfect host and innkeeper and he is attentive to his guests and always has a funny story to share. It is in a perfect location for experiencing the beauty and charm of Lancaster.

Best of the Best !!!

5 on May 25, 2017

Everything was excellent .The room was so comfy and clean.The food was delicious!!! Thank you Robert for the wonderful stay!!

Mother's Day Weekend 2017

4.8 on May 18, 2017

My husband and I spent 2 nights at After Eight B&B over Mother's Day weekend 2017. The weather did not dampen our experience at all! The home was exquisitely decorated and was comfortable in every room. The breakfast was delicious! Robert was very a gracious host and would recommend staying here to anyone!

Definitely will book again

4.4 on May 11, 2017

My two sisters, a niece, and I stayed here and we were exceedingly pleased with our choice. The cottage was perfect for our needs with two bedrooms a comfortable living dining area and adequate bathroom. Everything was clean, tidy, and comfortably appointed. Breakfast was tasty and Robert's breakfast time storytelling was fun. We will definitely book here again and will probably make this a yearly sisters trip.

Looking forward to our next stay!

4.4 on May 08, 2017

My wife and I enjoyed a one night stay at 'After Eight B&B' after attending a local show. We were both immediately impressed with the beautifully decorated and very well-groomed garden and property grounds. The free parking was spacious and easily accommodated our SUV. We were equally impressed with our clean and pleasantly scented bedroom. Our private bathroom was spotless and featured elegant bathroom fixtures and finishings. The host provided customer service that was timely and attentive. We enjoyed a very warm, welcoming, and safe atmosphere.

Beautiful place to stay!

5 on May 01, 2017

This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast, and we had a very enjoyable experience! The host Robert was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was amazing and Lancaster was an awesome experience. We will definitely be coming back to this home!

Perfect Place to Stay

5 on April 27, 2017

We stayed in the Private Corner Room this past weekend, which was absolutely perfect. Very clean, attention to detail is amazing and was a comfortable stay for the weekend. Robert, the Inn Keeper, was wonderful, offering advice on where to visit, eat, and took the time to mark certain areas of interest on a map of Lancaster. Both breakfasts were beautifully made and Robert's stories were a great start to a morning. Several areas of the house were set up to interact with others - puzzle area, sitting room with computer, TV, it was very welcoming. 24 hour beverages and snacks were available, including a fridge where you could keep a bottle of wine, beer, or your own choice of beverage. It was place in the center of most areas that we wanted to visit. The Railroad Museum and Station were 3.10 miles away, Bird in Hand a few miles more. Located near plenty of shops, eateries, bakeries...everything you'd want to see in Lancaster. We'll definitely return. We would recommend this place to anyone that wants a beautiful get away.

Couldn't wait to get up and see what was for Breakfast

5 on April 27, 2017

breakfast was awesome, homemade Cookies, games, the grounds where beautiful, clean clean clean, Robert was much fun no more hotels for us

Simply Amazing!!!

5 on April 19, 2017

This was our first B&B experience and now the bar is set really high! Robert, Host and Innkeeper was amazing! Robert helped us first timers find things to do, and treated us with the upmost respect. The B&B was very clean and very well looked after. The linens were freshly laundered ( we could still smell the detergent :-) , which is a major deal to us! The food was amazing! If you are looking for a clean place with good vibes, great food and beautiful scenery, Look no further! The location is central to so many places. We were sad to leave :-( We are already planning our next trip! We can not wait to come back to After Eight B&B, our new home away From home! TWilliams & JPope

Just the best

5 on March 20, 2017

This was our second time staying at After Eight. I actually don't like giving good reviews,cause that only makes it harder to get a reservation the next time. But, what can you do? Robert is a fine gentleman and the rooms are excellent. I am not a breakfast person, but when my wife and I are there, I wouldn't skip it.

Outstanding B&B

5 on March 17, 2017

We've stayed at "After Eight" three times and have had a great visit each time. Robert is a great host/innkkeeper, excellent chef and a very funny storyteller. Our accommodations are always neat and clean and Robert always makes us feel welcome.Can't wait till spring when we plan to visit again.

Great place to Stay!

5 on March 07, 2017

We have stayed at After Eight Bed & Breakfast many times and loved every moment! Robert is a fantastic host who sees to his guests every request! He keeps the house decorated nicely and always keeps it immaculately cleaned.The rooms are very nicely furnished and comfortable. His breakfasts are superb! He has board games and puzzles available. He will give directions, ideas of things to do and places to eat.

Highly Reccomend!

5 on February 23, 2017

Great location to all Lancaster attractions. Clean, friendly and beautiful B&B. Robert is a great host with lots of stories, knowledge of the area its history and a wonderful cook! Can't wait to go back for another visit.

Wonderful and cozy!

5 on February 22, 2017

My husband and I had the great pleasure of staying at After Eight B&B and we couldn't have felt more at home. Our private room and the common rooms were cozy but elegant and Robert, the innkeeper, was a most gracious host. The breakfasts were delicious. An OUTSTANDING weekend and we highly recommend it!

Highly recommend this friendly place!

5 on February 06, 2017

We were in town to attend Sight and Sound theater nearby. It was perfect location. Everything was great, could not have been better. Very pleasant.

Wonderful Holiday stay

5 on January 13, 2017

Robert is a fantastic chef who is also a standup comic. A great B & B close to everything in the Lancaster area. Robert is a gracious host that is why we come back. We treated our daughter to a stay in the cottage and she absolutely loved it and we stayed in the lovely porch room. Whenever we go to the American Theater this is where we stay.

New Years 2016-2017

5 on January 05, 2017

The in keeper Robert is as accommodating as he can be. He makes our stay fun and enjoyable. The rooms are extremely clean and updated in a county way. Loved it and will be back next year.

A Wonderful place to Stay!

5 on January 04, 2017

We stay here often because we like it so much! This B&B is situated in a great location for visits to relatives, shopping, and entertainment. The whole house is beautifully decorated and impecably clean. Robert ,the host/innkeeper, goes out of his way to make sure his guests are satisfied and happy. We highly recommend staying here!


4.8 on November 25, 2016

I loved my room! The decor was perfect for the house and everything was spotless. The breakfast was wonderful and there were lots of little amenities to keep you happy. Robert was so kind and helpful. He was full of great ideas for places to visit and places to eat. I would live there if I could! It was a wonderful experience for me.

A Great B&B!

5 on November 16, 2016

If you are in the Lancaster area, shopping, visiting friends, or just enjoying a stay in a wonderful area, treat yourself to something special and stay at the After Eight B&B! Robert is an awesome cook and innkeeper, and you will cherish your time there. Everything was outstanding, and we plan to stay there again when in the area. Karen and Tony from S. Jersey

Wonderful Room

4.6 on November 10, 2016

My husband & I spent 1 night in the Sunrise Bay Window room. The room was Beautiful, the Bathroom very very clean, Lots of Toiletries, & the bed Extremely comfortable. The house itself played very nice Smooth Jazz music & was the kitchen had snacks for us, water & soda in the fridge & a comfortable den. Robert, the owner, was a pleasure to meet & a wonderful cook. My husband tho felt a little more food would have truly met his stomach urgings b/c he was still hungry, even tho what we did eat was delicious. We will most definitely stay here again, especially since it's so close to the Outlets

Wonderful place to stay!

5 on October 28, 2016

Beautiful room and very clean.


4.8 on October 27, 2016

We had a wonderful time at After Eight. The host, Robert, was very helpful with sights to see and places to eat. The room was nicely decorated and very clean. The breakfasts were excellent. We will definitely stay here again.

Wonderful B&B Experience

4.0 on October 18, 2016

Balcony Room was cozy and fine -- during a warmer time of year the balcony would be perfect. Robert was very helpful with recommendations for dinner and for local shopping.


5 on October 17, 2016

We stayed at this bed & breakfast for 2 nights. It was fantastic! The rooms were so clean and decorated so nice! And Robert the owner is an amazing cook. The breakfasts were so good!! I requested gluten free and he was so accomodating. Robert also entertained us as we ate breakfast, really funny stories/jokes! I will return and may add additional nights onto my trip next time!!

After Eight Review

4.8 on September 28, 2016

Everything was five star. Our only negative was the Porch Room could get a little noisy in the evening if you are going to bed between 10 - 11. The people on the porch could get a little loud. It's not their fault, the tables and chairs are located just outside the outside door to the porch room next to the bed.

After Eight Bed & Breakfast----Once Again

4.0 on September 24, 2016

We returned once again to After Eight Bed & Breakfast, and as at our previous stay it still rates as the best Bed & Breakfast we ever experienced. We now feel that After Eight Bed & Breakfast is our second home when we visit this area!

breakfast at bob's

5 on September 19, 2016

my wife and I would just have to repeat all of the wonderful reviews to cover our feelings for Robert and his B&B. Words alone can't do the experience justice. The best advice we can give is "go there". You'll wish you had planned a longer stay. Ours was Sept. 12-14. Mickey & Sandy Conlee

hospitable b&b

4.8 on September 17, 2016

Mr Hall was a great host. Explained everything upon arrival. The whole house was opened to us. The breakfasts were delicious and extremely comfortable atmosphere. I definite come back to place.

clean and quiet

4.8 on September 14, 2016

Friendly and charming host


5 on September 08, 2016

The room was very clean, the breakfast was great, and Robert, our host, was fabulous. If you ever want a clean, quiet, and restful place to stay, I would employ you to visit After Eight Bed & Breakfast. Robert is such a delightful host, he made our stay even more enjoyable.

Great place to stay and relax

5 on September 07, 2016

Easy check-in, great host, clean and comfortable corner room on the 1st floor of the B&B. Each morning our host, Robert, greeted the guests with a description of the breakfast being served after which he entertained us by telling us what he calls "little stories". Robert was the perfect travel guide (even though he never left his post). No matter where in the area (or a bit out of it), Robert was able to accommodate. Recommend staying there; we will again in the near future.

Best B & B

5 on September 02, 2016

Had a marvelous room and breakfasts with our host Robert regaling us with stories and hilarious sales pitches for his cookbook. the cookbook has fantastic recipes with area for notations. Truly a 4 star B&B.

A fantastic B&B

5 on September 02, 2016

We have been coming to After Eight for many years. We find it a wonderful place to stay. The location is convenient, the rooms are comfortable and very clean, but most important the inn-keeper Robert is friendly and knows so much about the area. You will stay once and all other B&Bs won't measure up!

Best Bed & Breakfast Ever

5 on September 01, 2016

Lovely location,reasonably priced, lots to see and do, beautiful rooms and grounds, great breakfasts and accommodating to special needs diets, and most importantly Robert the host and owner. He's charming, friendly, and funny. He's also very helpful helping his guests find local attractions and great dining suggestions. We look forward to return every year. Ron and Pat Hosler

A Three Day Getaway

4.2 on August 29, 2016

We enjoyed our stay at After Eight. The room was cozy and comfortable. The bathroom was really nice. Both rooms were very clean. The best part about our stay was the food. Robert is an excellent cook, and we were spoiled by his delicious, big breakfasts. He was also kind enough to accommodate my diet to keep my blood sugar low.

Very hospitable and charming!

5 on August 25, 2016

Innkeeper Robert was gracious, funny and great with a story at breakfast. We stayed 2 nights at the cottage which was very clean and well furnished. Breakfast both mornings was delicious! Hot coffee or tea being available all day was a great perk, not to mention fresh baked cookies all day. Located close to all of the area attractions was also a perk!! If you have not made plans for your stay, ask Robert. He has a wealth of knowledge of what to see or steer clear of. We will definitely be back!!

Wonderful B&B

5 on August 23, 2016

Stayed 2 nights for our anniversary, new to B&Bs. Robert very warm, gracious host. Provided plenty of info, including a marked map,about area and dinner restaurants. The breakfast were wonderful, even better because Robert entertained us with funny stories. Room decor is lovely, several activity rooms available and kitchen access 24 hours/day for snacks, homemade cookies and beverages. Comfy bed, great A/C and our room had a marvelous double shower. There was a jigsaw puzzle in progress that all guests could participate in, a nice way to meet the other guests. The grounds were lovely to spend some time outside relaxing. All in all, a great place to stay, will stay again when in the area. Thanks, Robert

BRAVO for After Eight!

5 on August 18, 2016

Excellent spot for our recent gals mini-retreat! Robert is the best - accommodating, entertaining, and prepares and serves a mean breakfast! Very neat and clean rooms with the softest sheets and pillows in the world. HIGHLY recommend any Lancaster traveler stop here to relax and reboot!

Lovely time!

5 on August 16, 2016

We had a wonderful time at After Eight. Robert was a great host and served us delicious breakfasts each morning. He also made sure my husband who has to have gluten-free due to Celiac had a delicious breakfast ! Our room was lovely and roomy. Robert's knowledge of the area was also terrific!

Classic B&B in Lancaster County

5 on August 10, 2016

We stayed two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time in the heart of Amish country. Robert was the consummate host with good suggestions for attractions and best restaurants in the area, as well as an entertaining raconteur at breakfast. Breakfast itself was delicious and if there is anything with Chantilly cream on it you are in for a treat. The rooms are well appointed and spotlessly clean. Located on Rt 30, you are within a short drive of Lancaster, Strasburg, Bird in Hand and Intercourse. Driving anywhere in the countryside is an attraction in itself if you are into bucolic scenery and life as it was 150 years ago.

Aniversary Getaway

5 on August 09, 2016

We spent 3 nights at After Eight for a getaway for our 55th wedding anniversary. The Innkeeper, Robert, is a very charming and personable person. He goes out of his way to make guests as comfortable as possible. The breakfasts he makes are beyond delicious. He tells stories at breakfast and engages everyone in conversation. We stayed in one of the cottages. The décor is great, and the beds and bedding very comfortable. There are 2 living rooms in the House with puzzles and games Everyone may enjoy. The grounds are lovely, with seating through out. We had a very enjoyable and relaxing stay. We will return. Sandy & Bob Osiecki, Bethlehem, PA

Birthday weekened

5 on August 08, 2016

My husband and I stayed here from July 30 - August 2, 2016. Robert was a great host and tells very funny stories. He made us feel very welcome. The rooms were very comfortable and very clean. Looking forward to returning again!


5 on July 19, 2016

my husband and I stayed there july 12-14th. Robert was so helpful he was a great host. T the woman who was there on the 13th was great too. she was funny. the rooms were great, breakfast was fab. the other guests were friendly we sat on the patio and talked the grounds outside were beautiful and the view was refreshing. I would def stay there again.

Just Right

4.6 on July 19, 2016

Three friends and I were traveling through the Amish Country and randomly selected this B&B as it could accommodate four singles; not just couples. We were greeted in a warm, welcoming manner that immediately told us we'd made a good choice. For a couple the room would have been ideal; for four individuals it was a tad small - but then, we could have gotten two rooms. The dining area was pristine, and the midnight selections excellent. The accessibility to the Amish Country was perfect. The garden and outside dining option was wonderful. We all travel extensively and had one other B&B on our trip; which was just standard fare. We would all highly recommend After Eight for any traveler going this direction. The only thing is the outside porch was recently painted brown and gives a rather drab first impression - white would be a great idea. :-)

Won't find a Better Place. After Eight B&B

5 on July 13, 2016

Laugh hysterically while eating a five star breakfast listening to Robert's stories. Don't walk by the cookies without grabbing a few. Located within minutes of anything you might want to do. Meet new folks while eating, unlike a hotel or motel. Definitely going to stay there again. Be sure to buy the cookbook. Bill and Donna

Enjoyable and lovely

4.0 on July 05, 2016

This bed and breakfast was the most pleasant one I have stayed at. The owner is delightful. The breakfast were spectacular. I would go back there just to eat! Everyone staying there were very friendly. Anxious to go back again and again!!

Wonderfully relaxing

4.8 on July 03, 2016

We really enjoyed out stay at After Eight. Our rooms were exceedingly clean. We had stayed in the area before; so we knew our way around a bit. However, Robert told us of some places we hadn't seen. Our breakfasts were not only delicious but also beautiful to look at. You eat with your eyes first worked in this case. I would not hesitate to recommend After Eight to anyone; and I would stay there again if we ever make it out that way again. Thanks, Robert, for your attention to detail. I loved just sitting on the porch and enjoying the garden! -Dom and Ginny

Wonderful relaxing vacation

4.0 on July 02, 2016

We called because of arriving late and Robert graciously said he would meet us after our Sight and Sound show to check-in. Room was very nice and good WiFi. Breakfast was very good and referral for dinner were excellent. He has information and menus on all the major restaurants in area. Enjoyed working on the jigsaw puzzle in the sitting room. I would rate outstanding but this website will not allow when I click on outstanding. We will go back again.

Everything donr right

4.6 on June 26, 2016

This was our second visit (celebrating our 60th wedding anniversary), and we would definitely hope to come again. We have stayed in dozens of B&B's over the years, and After Eight is one of the best.

First time a charm, not second

4.8 on June 18, 2016

This was our first time in Lancaster and at a Bed and Breakfast. We really did not know what to expect but were pleasantly surprised. Clean, quite, hospitable, unassuming, really true. You want to relax? Pull up a chair and sit on the porch. Converse with Robert and others. Great advice on dinner. Breakfast generous and delicious. Will do it again for sure. Imad and Loubna

Extremely good experience

4.8 on June 17, 2016

Robert, our host, had very tastefully and elegantly decorated our bedroom. And yet, it's atmosphere was very relaxing and homey, not at all like a museum. His downstairs sitting rooms also were a great place to read in the evening. He has paid attention to so many details, without providing frilly extras that would command a premium we would not have wanted to pay. The pricing was such a good bargain for this special time my wife and I shared exploring the Amish and Mennonite lands and culture.

A peaceful stay

4.6 on June 07, 2016

A peaceful place to stay in beautiful Amish country. I felt pampered and spoiled having someone fix breakfast for me. The guestrooms were lovely with comfortable beds. Robert was helpful with suggestions.I would definitely recommend it to others.

Superb get away!

5 on June 05, 2016

Great choice! Everything we wanted for our visit to the area, clean and comfortable with delicious breakfast and a wonderful host. Close to shopping and restaurants and many of the nearby attractions. Property is well maintained and a great setting. Mike & Kathy K. Colorado

Returning Guests

4.6 on June 03, 2016

After discovering After Eight by accident two years ago, we came back this year and brought friends. We like the quaint atmosphere and Robert's attention to detail, even in suggesting touring and dining opportunities. The taste and presentation of the breakfasts he serves are lovely. We hope to make this an annual retreat.

Great Visit

4.0 on May 06, 2016

- Robert (innkeeper)

Wonderful Escape

5 on April 07, 2016

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.

- Robert (innkeeper)

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

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

Innkeeper Response
I am glad to hear that and when you do return I will keep giving you new places to visit and explore, there is so much to see and do in Lancaster. Thanks again.

- Robert (innkeeper)

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.

- Robert (innkeeper)

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.

- Robert (innkeeper)

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

5 on March 09, 2016

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!

february get away

NIce home converted to an inn - B&B. Right on the primary road in Lancaster. RIGHT on the road - some traffic noise.

Loveliest B&B ever

5 on January 10, 2016

We stayed at Robert's After Eight B&B in October for two nights and we regretted that we couldn't extend our stay due to other arrangements. The house, rooms and garden are beautiful and Robert is a charming and very supporting host. He helped us find the best way to the Blue Ridge Parkway, which we wouldn't have hit without him, I'm afraid. His breakfasts are very tasty and we loved the stories he tells during breakfast time. A lovely custom. We do hope to be able to return one day.

Great New Year's Weekend including a Murder-Mystery with dinner. Breakfast was very tasty. Our host Robert was wonderful, friendly and funny. The B&B was very clean and relaxing.can't wait to do it again.

such a wonderful place!!

5 on December 01, 2015

All was wonderful here! I forgot my own pillow (for my neck) & the pillows/bed here felt fabulous. Everything is very clean. Robert makes delicious cookies for the day and breakfast is something to look forward to. Always a puzzle to work on when you come in and the common area is very pleasant. Robert is knowledgeable & detailed with his tour and recommendations for the surrounding area. There are beautiful handmade mugs that you can purchase as souvenirs & also Christmas ornaments. The location is perfect with the most beautiful Amish farmland out the back and everything is close. A must-see is the Christmas Museum down the road! We do return to this area every few years and will stay here from now on! We have stayed in many B&B's and this ranks the highest!

After Eight is our Favorite!

5 on November 17, 2015

Our stays at After Eight B&B have been so enjoyable. The rooms are always very clean and inviting. The furnishings are lovely. Robert goes above and beyond to make our stay memorable. His breakfasts are delicious; he always wants to know dietary limitations and goes out of his way to accommodate. His stories at breakfast make it a relaxing and fun time with the other guests. We highly recommend this B&B!

Weekend Getaway

4.0 on November 07, 2015

Robert made us feel very welcome and at home and gave us a tour of all the amenities when we arrived. The grounds were beautiful and the rooms were very clean and comfortable. We enjoyed meeting other guests at breakfast and throughout the day. It is close to many of Lancaster's wonderful attractions and restaurants. I would highly recommend After Eight to all of my family and friends!

Wonderful stay!

5 on November 06, 2015

My mother and I stayed in one of the cottages recently, and had a truly terrific time. The accommodations were quiet, comfortable, well appointed, and the sheets were the softest I have ever slept on. The breakfast was unique and tasty, and our host Robert was a pleasure to spend time with - great sense of humor! This was one of the best, if not THE best B&B experience I have had.

Excellent weekend getaway

4.8 on October 31, 2015

Everything was flawless as usual. My wife and I have been coming here for 5 years, and will return again. Robert makes excellent and generous breakfast, He gives many helpful suggestions on activities to do while staying there, and is a flawless host. He keeps the rooms absolutely spotless.

Great B&B

5 on October 28, 2015

We recently stayed two nights and I had never been to any B&B before. Roger was very accommodating and hospitable. breakfast was hot and delicious both mornings, we are looking forward to returning in the future.

Wonderful Bed & Breakfast

4.6 on October 27, 2015

Our stay at After Eight Bed & Breakfast was wonderful. Robert met us right away, checking us in and taking us on a tour of the B&B. The breakfasts served each morning were so good and was the perfect start of our day. The only reason we didn't give 5 stars on the room was the bed, we prefer an extra firm bed to soft memory foam. Otherwise the room was beautiful and comfortable to be in. We would recommend this B&B to anyone thinking of visiting Lancaster, PA. Keep up the great job Robert, we enjoyed our stay with you. Peter & Tina

After Eight Bed and Breakfast

5 on October 21, 2015

Our stay at After Eight Bed and Breakfast was delightful. The room upstairs overlooked a field in the back of the inn. Our room was clean and furnished very nicely. The breakfasts were delicious. Apple pancakes were my favorite, although the Amish breakfast casserole was very good as well. Host Robert was very helpful in guiding us through the town and helped us find specific locations as we were not familiar with the area. All in all a wonderful visit. I would highly recommend this inn to friends and those wishing to have a nice stay at a bed and breakfast in the area.

October Getaway

5 on October 14, 2015

We brought our eldest daughter here. She works overseas, and is a world traveler. We stayed in the Cottage West and she was very impressed.

Comfortable, convenient B&B

5 on October 12, 2015

Several college friends (class of 1967) and I concluded a week-long reunion exploring Pennsylvania with a two-night stay at After Eight. We enjoyed the attractively decorated living spaces, complete with jigsaw puzzle to work on, and the beautiful guest rooms. I especially savored my view of Amish farm fields. The two breakfasts were delicious. Robert gave us excellent tips on local sightseeing attractions and restaurants. We couldn't have asked for a friendlier, funnier, more cordial host.


4.8 on October 09, 2015

Our stay here could not have better. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Robert and he proceeded to explain the comings and goings of the Inn. Showed us the common rooms and then the private corner room that we had chosen. The Room was immaculate, and everything was in order. The bed and linens were very, very comfortable. We had two breakfasts, both were very tasty and health conscious. Coffee, light drinks, and snacks were available all day in the dining room. Thank you Robert for making our stay outstanding.

After Eight Was Simply Great!

5 on September 29, 2015

In looking at hotel prices around Lancaster, we found that for the price, it was a much better deal to stay at After Eight. Robert was not only a welcoming host, but also a chef that knew how to entice our breakfast pallets with delicious meals. The room was clean and inviting and we truly felt "at home."

Lovely Inn

5 on September 28, 2015

Our stay at After Eight was very nice. Everything was very clean and beautifully decorated. Theresa was the Inn sitter and she was wonderful. The breakfast was out standing. We would definitely stay here again.

You will be warmly welcomed and impressed!

5 on September 25, 2015

Robert welcomed us warmly when we arrived - it was absolutely pouring down with rain and he provided a huge umbrella for us to get our bags out of the car and into the house. His tour of the property was fantastic; he didn't just show us where everything was, and leave us to it, but took the time to find out why we were there, suggesting attractions we should see in the area and giving tips on the best buggy rides to take, the microbrewery bars around Lancaster, where to eat, and so on. The room itself was amazing. Large, airy and bright in the morning, with plenty of space for our clothes and bits and bobs. The bathroom was lovely and the shower had enough pressure. Everything was very clean but not that sterile-clean that makes you feel like you were in a generic chain hotel. The breakfasts - home cooked to his own recipes - were very tasty and original, as well as the breakfast conversations, where he'd recount really interesting stories and get everyone involved. The location was nice, too. While being close to a busy road you didn't hear too much of the passing traffic, and the opposite side backed out onto open fields and farms, which was lovely to see in the morning (I woke up early one morning and went down for a coffee on the front porch and saw the sun rise, as well as smoking on the back porch in the evening and listening to the cows and crickets). All in all we both had a wonderful time here and we would definitely go back when we come back to the area.

A nice addition to our weekend away

5 on September 09, 2015

The bed was so comfortable and the sheets so smooth, room was clean, it added to our relaxing weekend away. Robert was more than helpful.

Very Nice Stay

4.4 on September 09, 2015

My wife and I stayed two nights and very much enjoyed our stay. The place was immaculately clean and the host, Robert, very gracious.

A Great place to Stay!

5 on September 04, 2015

We have stayed many times in this Bed and Breakfast because we like it so much. Robert is a wonderful host and chef. He is very personable and keeps his B&B immaculate. The rooms are lovely and very comfortable. He has many immenities available to make you feel at home and he can suggest mant places to go to eat or sight-see.He has spoiled us because other places we've stayed in have not been as nice!

Top Notch Service!

5 on August 28, 2015

We stayed two nights and would have extended our stay if we could have! Robert is an excellent host, breakfast chef, humorist, and helpful in many ways. Our room was very comfortable and we felt right at home in the porch room with our own "front door!"

Wonderful stay

5 on August 25, 2015

Robert is a delight. Our breakfast was delicious along with his free entertainment. We keep returning.

First stay at B&B

5 on August 23, 2015

We enjoyed our stay at After Eight. The room was comfortable and very pretty. Robert recommended several things to do, as we were unfamiliar with the town. The breakfast was delicious. Robert took the extra effort to make mine gluten free. We would definitely come again and recommend it to our friends and family.

Best B & B

5 on August 15, 2015

Only thing to say is it is a great bed and breakfast. Tops

First time in Lancaster

5 on August 06, 2015

This was our first time visiting Lancaster and we were pleased and surprised by all that we experienced. We rented the West Cottage with 2 bedrooms, kitchen and sitting area. The accommodations were spotless and the beds very comfortable. We pumped Robert with lots of questions concerning the Amish community because it was our first time here. He was very knowledgeable and shared this freely with us. He gave us brochures and told us the best places to go. The breakfast was delicious; we ate every morsel. He even catered to one who was celiac. The grounds were kept well and no garbage anywhere. Well maintained Inn. We would recommend it highly and plan to visit again.

Beautiful & inviting

4.8 on July 28, 2015

A great two day stay in Amish country. Our room was cozy, comfortable and clean. Breakfast was terrific! Robert is very personable and knowledgeable about the area. Would definitely stay again and recommend to friends.

Will always return to After Eight.

5 on July 28, 2015

Always a treat to stay with Robert. He has a delightful sense of humor and is quite the cook. Look forward to a return soon.

Very comfortable stay

4.4 on July 22, 2015

Our stay at the After Eight was very enjoyable. The room was beautiful and the breakfast was quite good. Robert is a fine host as well as a great entertainer!

A glorious stay in Amish Country

5 on July 21, 2015

Every thing was perfect. The setting with flowers in the foreground and the Amish farms in the background was superb.

Our first B&B experience and it was great!

5 on July 09, 2015

Gourmet breakfast was wonderful. The Sunset room was spacious and well decorated. The host actually lives in a different building so we didn't feel like we were intruding on someone's home. Centrally located to all the local sites. Thanks, Robert, for a great stay!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for your kindness. I am glad that you enjoyed yourself and please come again. Robert

Best little B&B

5 on July 09, 2015

could not have been more pleased, from check in to check out. Pleasent decor and atmosphere. Centrally located to everything we wanted and the most helpful, entertaining and informative owner I've come across in a long time. Will be coming back.

Our Home Away From Home

5 on June 02, 2015

We have stayed at After Eight B&B numerous times and we are never disappointed. Robert is the most gracious host. His breakfasts are always super delicious. The rooms are spotless and absolutely perfect. A true gem!

Innkeeper Response
I am glad that you notice my effort in helping guests to relax and enjoy their time of relaxation. I hope to see you many more times. Robert

- Robert (innkeeper)

Can't wait until our next stay at After Eight B&B.

5 on May 22, 2015

My wife and I have stayed at various B&B's, and never made return visits. Just returned from our third trip to After Eight, and are discussing our next visit in the near future. On our most recent visit we stayed at one of the cottages just a short distance from the main house. We enjoyed it so much. It was roomy, and very well equipped if you prefer to do some cooking. Stove. refrigerator, dishwasher, etc. Our host, Robert, goes out of his way to make the visit extra special. Cleanliness and service are second to none.

Innkeeper Response
It is great that you have tried several rooms. The cottages are a great retreat and you still have the option to enjoy all the common areas in the main house as well as breakfast in the morning. Thanks again, I hope to see you soon. Robert

- Robert (innkeeper)

Hospitality, great room and food made a wonderful stay

4.8 on May 16, 2015

Robert, We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with you. Our room, the breakfasts, the hospitality the other guests, the house itself and even the jokes made for a wonderful getaway from everyday cares and concerns. Not sure whether to thank you or blame you (lol), but after returning home, I almost immediately ordered two large jigsaw puzzles for Susan and I to work on together. We will also be sampling recipes from the autographed B & B cookbook. Thanks again, John and Susan

Innkeeper Response
Reading this message made me smile. Jigsaw Puzzles are a great way to relax and the 'group' effort and lend to some great conversations. As you mentioned the cookbook has some great recipes. Hope to see you soon.

- Robert (innkeeper)

Not our first stay

4.8 on May 13, 2015

We have stayed there last year, and will return next year. We had always wanted to try a B an B ,and after our experience will use After Eight before any motel.Thanks for great get away , Robert.

Innkeeper Response
You are like many of my guests, they try a bed and breakfast for the first time and then find they are more relaxing and homey than a hotel. Thanks come again soon.

- Robert (innkeeper)

Our First B&B Expreience!

4.2 on April 27, 2015

This was our first B&B experience. Robert was a wonderful help in setting up this surprise stay for us. The room was fantastic, and the breakfast servied was over the top. We met a few nice folks while staying and really enjoyed the experience. Even though we have visited Lancaster many times, Robert was able to point us in several new directions for places to visit. We really enjoyed our visit. Thank you

Innkeeper Response
Thank you. I am always trying to find something new and different for guests that enjoy exploring new locations. There is so much to see and do in Lancaster Pennsylvania. Bed and breakfasts are great ways to meet other people from all over the country and the world. I am glad you met some nice people.

- Robert (innkeeper)


5 on April 25, 2015

Love this B&B. Rooms are clean, welcomeing, & comfortable. the host Robert makes you feel rite at home. always has advice on what to do & where to go. his character is comforting. breakfast time is always a treat. go visit Robert & his After Eight Bed & Breakfast, the views are beautiful & relaxing.

Innkeeper Response
I am glad that I am successful in helping you feel relaxed and at home. That is always my goal with each guest. A 'home away from home'. Thank you.

- Robert (innkeeper)

An Enlightening Experience

5 on April 22, 2015

Our stay at the After Eight Bed & Breakfast was wonderful! Robert, our host, provided so much information about local attractions as well as places to eat. As soon as you pull into the parking area and see the working Amish farm behind the B&B, you begin to relax. We stayed in the cottage, which was very clean and inviting. Robert thinks of everything to make your stay educational, fun and relaxing. We will be back!

Innkeeper Response
Yes, there is an Amish farm right at the back fence. Many guests get the opportunity to see them in various aspects of farming, depending on the time of the year. I have lots of information about the surrounding area and many guests tell me about more locations to add to my list. I look forward to your return.

- Robert (innkeeper)

1st wedding Anniversary....3rd visit to After Eight

5 on April 17, 2015

We always enjoy visiting Lancaster and staying at the After Eight. Cozy and friendly best describes the environment. Robert, our host, always makes a yummy breakfast and provides snacks&beverages 24/7. We loved the apple walnut baked pancake on Monday. Cannot wait to make it at home. Our room was very comfortable and well appointed. Parking is easy and safe. We enjoy that a puzzle is always out for everyone to work on during their stay. We look forward to future visits.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you, thank you, thank you. It was great having you again. The German Apple Pancake is one of my guests favorite recipes. I am always happy to share any of my recipes, if I can remember how I made them. See you again, soon.

- Robert (innkeeper)

Charming and big rooms!

4.4 on April 15, 2015

We were delighted to find that the rooms in the B&B were considerably larger than most B&B's we've visited, so there was plenty of space to relax. There was also great attention to the need for counter/table space, outlets for gadgets and plenty of lighting options. So it was a great mix of the charm of an older house with the ease of modern touches. Robert was very helpful and the breakfasts, wonderful.

A wonderful place to getaway and feel refreshed

5 on April 08, 2015

My husband and I enjoy our recent trip to the Lancaster area. This was our first time staying at a B&B and we thought the experience was outstanding. Robert made sure we had everything we needed for our weekend away. Breakfast each morning was different and very tasty. You can't go wrong when staying at After Eight B&B.

We shall return!

4.6 on April 01, 2015

We had the most FABULOUS time with Robert at the After Eight Bed and Breakfast! The rooms were beautiful and SUPER CLEAN! Robert is a WONDERFUL host! We shall return!

Wonderful B & B!

5 on November 14, 2014

Robert was a great host and made us feel right at home! Terrific source of info about what to see & do.

Charming B&B

4.8 on October 04, 2014

We have visited After Eight B&B three times and will return! It is located in the Amish country and close to all the area's museums, attractions, and resturants. Robert is an excellent host providing delicious breakfasts, and recommendations for the area. It has a cozy gathering room, a TV-computer room, and a jigsaw puzzle is always available to work on with your new friends! Looking forward to our next visit.

Will stay here every time

5 on April 13, 2014

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.

Best B & B experience.

5 on February 28, 2014

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

great first B&B experience

4.6 on February 23, 2014

Robert very knowledgeable of local "things to do"; an all around great host! Cozy home away from home.


5 on September 08, 2013

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

Clean and very welcoming

5 on September 06, 2013

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 !

After Eight Deserves Praise of High Heights!

4.6 on July 24, 2013

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.

Fantastic place to stay, very clean and simply beautiful.

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.

Delightful Bed and Breakfast

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'

first time guest that WILL be back!

3.8 on June 30, 2013

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

Home Away from Home

5 on November 21, 2012

We had a wonderful time at this B&B. Great food, the house was very cozy, with spacious rooms. Robert, the owner, was very helpful, friendly and a great cook. We highly recommend this B&B and we plan to return. John & Carmen

After Eight

4.8 on October 07, 2012

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.

Another Great Stay

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.

Another Fine B&B

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.

Weekend Getaway

5 on August 14, 2012

First stay ever, place was so beautiful, peaceful, and relaxing. Owner was courteous, entertaining. Our stay was awesome.

the best B&B ever stayed

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...

Terrific Experience

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.

Just what we needed

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.

A sanctuary in Gordonville, Pa

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.

A Wonderful Way to Spend a New Year's Weekend!

5 on January 02, 2012

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.

Wonderful Stay

4.0 on December 02, 2011

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.

Just like home - only better

5 on December 01, 2011

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

A great stay

4.2 on October 25, 2011

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.

Lancaster Visit

5 on October 14, 2011

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.

Awesome Find

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.

Great clean place!

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.

After Eight is Great!

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.

A Serene Weekend

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.

first experience-great!

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!

Great Find

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!

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!

Great Place to Stay

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.

Another Great Stay.

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

Outstanding Bed and Breakfast

Wonderful hospitality in Paradise

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!

Fabulous fun; restful facility; Lancaster at its best!

4.8 on June 15, 2011

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.

The perfect place to stay

After eight and eighteen wheelers

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.

Great Accomodations!

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at After Eight. Robert is very helpful with suggestions about places to eat and tourist information. The food was excellent and the breakfast entertainment was very funny! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

AWESOME Experience!!!

4.2 on May 29, 2011

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.

What Fun

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.

Great place to stay.

4.4 on May 17, 2011

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.

You'll want to be a repeat customer

5 on May 08, 2011

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!

Weekend Getaway

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.

A stay at After Eight B&B

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).

We were impressed!

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.

Wonderful stay

4.8 on April 10, 2011

Robert is a wonderful host. Loved the humor at breakfast. Wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back. Thanks!

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.

Robert is a very funny guy !!!!

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!

All about the host

4.6 on March 16, 2011

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.

Great bed and breakfast

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. He is full of information, very helpful and will keep you laughing with his jokes at breakfast. We've been there twice now and plan on going back as soon as we can. Pat & Russ

Exceptional food, great location

5 on November 28, 2010

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.


5 on November 22, 2010

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)

Great BandB in Lancaster!!!

5 on November 21, 2010

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.

My stay at B&B

5 on November 11, 2010

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.

After Eight made me look good as a new husband!

5 on November 02, 2010

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.

Second to none

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.

Great place. Fantastic host!

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

Great place and innkeeper very helpful

4.2 on October 20, 2010

The stay was wonderful. The inn keeper was very helpful regarding amish attractions. I was pleased with the cleanness and comfort of the rooms. Very convenient to amish attractions. Breakfast tended to be a little more like dessert than breakfast. Other than that GREAT!!!

Fall Getaway

5 on October 11, 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.

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.

We must return

4.0 on August 08, 2010

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

First Timer

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!

Anxious to return.

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

What for a delightful experiment

5 on April 12, 2010

A very friendly and helpful host and a delious breakfast in the morning, to start the day right.

B&B Delight

5 on March 29, 2010

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, 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


5 on March 07, 2010

My first stay at a B&B and I am definitely a believer now! Robert is an excpetional host and wonderful cook - house was beautifully appointed and conveniently located for all Amish Country/Lancaster area attractions.

What a Blessing!

5 on January 17, 2010

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!

B&B Hidden Treasure in Paradise

5 on July 02, 2009

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.

Could Not Have Been Nicer!

5 on June 29, 2009

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.

Our first bed and breakfast

4.4 on May 30, 2009

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


2.8 on May 03, 2009

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.

Excellent stay!

4.4 on April 22, 2009

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!

Brilliant stay in Paradise

5 on April 21, 2009

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

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!

wanted to stay longer

This was our second stay at this B&B and definately would return again. The home is very tastefully decorated, warm and comfortable. The rooms are very clean, comfortable, and quiet. The grounds are beautiful and the breakfasts were simply incredible. Robert is a wonderful host and friend, always going above and beyond to make your stay the best possible.

What a Great Time

The After Eight B&B is wonderful. The innkeeper, Robert, is an exceptional host. My husband and I had a wonderful time, and we will be returning!

10yr Wedding Anniverary Surprise!

4.6 on August 04, 2008

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 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.

Better and Better Each Time

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.

Amazing getaway!

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!

Wonderful place to stay

4.8 on July 22, 2008

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.

"Hospitality Plus"

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.

The breakfasts were superb! We asked for the recipes every morning. Robert was very helpful in advising where to visit according to our interests. I loved the garden (especially the evening primrose). This was our first visit to a B&B and I was very impressed. I really liked the decor.

The Whole Package

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!!

A Perfect Experience

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.

Anniversary Getaway

4.0 on August 02, 2007

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 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!

Excellent B&B

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!!
