We had a delightful stay at the Kimmell House. The hosts are charming, the breakfasts delicious and our room was lovely. We stayed in the Hunt room which was pretty and comfortable. We loved the stone house and all its history. The little touches, like a kitchen full of freshly baked cookies and crisp apples made this B & B... More

We stayed at the KImmell House B&B only one night but wish it could have been 100! The history, warmth and cleanliness of the property were surpassed only by the welcoming hosts, interesting guests and yummy breakfast: eggs, bacon, and authentic apple pan dowdy! It's walking distance to the Ephrata Cloister and just a short drive to historic Lititz and... More

We stayed there during this labor day weekend, we were looking for an old stone house/ B&B to stay when we found this. it was an absolutely awesome stay. House is some 200+ years old and the whole decor will probably take you back into that era. actually one of the living room is a little spooky.. . ;) our... More

Last weekend was the third time that we have stayed at the Kimmell House B and B in Ephrata, PA. Although we are not frequent contributors to Trip Advisor, we felt that the excellent accommodations and service that Bonnie and David provide at this location needed to be shared. From the moment that you arrive at the property and view... More

We live in the country, so staying at the Kimmell House was like a home away from home for us. This was our first trip to PA, so we didn't know what to expect, but Bonnie made us feel at home by welcoming us. The breakfast is like no other that we have tasted, the cookies were homemade;everything was made... More

This 1795 stone house is authentically kept and the gardens are lovely. A large parking area is located at the side of the house where a walkway winds its way to the front door. The interior harkens back to a time when life was simpler as displayed by the colour choices, stencilling and colonial furniture. Each bedroom is inviting, clean... More

We stayed here in mid-october and were extremely impressed. Authentic stone house built in the late 16th century with tasteful updates including hardware and detailing. we stayed in the Hunt room which was very large with a private bathroom as I believe all rooms have. Not too big and not too small. Very convenient location to all things Lancaster and... More

Excellent stay. Bonnie is an amazing hostess. She was kind, accomodating, and an excellent cook! We stayed for two nights. Impressive beakfast both mornings. Bonnie provided suggestions for activities as well as dining. The house itself is beautiful, rustic and charming. We stayed in the Hunt Room which was extremely comfy.

... this is all because of the the WONDERFUL hospitality that the InnKeepers at Kimmell House provided. Dave and Bonnie were so welcoming, warm-hearted and caring. That made me and my Mother feel right at home. My mother has never been to a B&B so I wanted to treat her. We stayed in the Hunt Room, which is very spacious... More
