Beautiful location with stunning views. Rooms were tastefully decorated and very clean. Breakfast was delicious. Warm, cordial innkeepers with excellent knowledge of the area. Very romantic vacation spot, especially the lake complete with swans and a gazebo. Highly recommend - the photos online do not do it justice- much more beautiful in person.

Outstanding bed and breakfast. The owners, Bert and Rich, are most the friendly and gracious hosts. They built the Hurst House to be a bed and breakfast, and they hit every detail just right. The hilltop location offers an unprecedented view of Lancaster and its farms. As a handicapped person, I really appreciated the elevator. If you can, stay at... More

We spent our 30th wedding anniversary at Hurst House and could not have been any more pleased. Bert and Rich welcomed us into their home with such a warm and friendly feeling. Their home is impeccably decorated and extremely clean. The property and grounds are very well maintained and the panoramic views of Amish farmland are simply stunning. Bert &... More

Hurst House Bed and Breakfast is truly a gem. We spent one night there. We would have liked two nights but the inn was booked. From the monument we stepped into the house we were delighted to be there. The grounds and the view are spectacular! We had a room with a balcony so our view was all farm land.... More

My wife and I first stayed at the Hurst House B & B approximately a year and a half ago and fell in love with the site, facilities, views, proprietors, essentially everything. My daughter back then was talking about getting married and I said this would be the perfect place. We spoke with my daughter and her fiancée, and once... More

We expected this place to be beautiful based on the website pictures, and expected good service based on Tripadvisor reviews. Our expectations were exceeded in every way, from start to finish. We've been to a number of B&B's all over the world, and this one is just the very best. Our stay was perfect from start to finish. Our room,... More

Short stay in Ephrata with family and could not have made a better selection. Bert and Rich were warm and inviting hosts. Venue was truly Victorian with great views of the landscaping. Will visit again.

Members of our cycling club rented out all 5 rooms for the weekend and found the Hurst House to be perfect spot to tour the area. The hilltop location has 360 views and there is always a cooling breeze on the wrap around porch. Bert and Rich are very accommodating hosts and provided us with a filling breakfast to keep... More
