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.

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

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!

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.
