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

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".

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

Excellent Bed & Breakfast

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

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

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!

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!

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!

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.
