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.

1st rate place

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.

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

Highly recommended

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

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

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.
