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

During a "girls week" away in Lancaster PA, we ended up in Ephrata during the trip. Part of the fun was staying in a different area each night and we decided to stay at The Kimmell House on a whim, and it turned out to be the perfect choice! The Kimmell House literally transports you back to an earlier time... More

Kimmell House is a beautiful stone house from the late 1700's. The Innkeepers, Dave and Bonnie, are delightful and so helpful. The rooms are authentic (except for the wonderful en-suites) to the period and charming. Since we were the only guests, we were given a tour of all the rooms. I will recommend this place to everyone I know!

Kimmell House provided wonderful lodging for my mother and myself as we visited famiy in Ephrata, PA. I loved the quaint atmosphere; we both found it relaxing! The grounds are lovely and well maintained. The morning breakfast was inviting and delicious. Dave and Bonnie are superb hosts. We will recommend Kimmell House and will indeed stay again.
