The B and B has 5 stunning bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms. There are stunning views of the country side and over a beautiful pond with two beautiful resident swans. The house is very large with excellent... More

The Hurst House B and B was in a great location with an outstanding view of Ephrata and Lancaster. The rooms were beautiful, clean and comfortable. The owners Bert and Rich were extremely accomodating and we thoroughly enjoyed conversing with them and the other guests. It's definitely a place we would love to return.

Three words that describe Rich and Bert, their home and grounds---"WOW, WOW and WOW". Great location. Basically within 15-30 minutes of everything that we wanted to do. Saw a shooting star the first two nights.

What a beautiful setting - as soon as we pulled into the driveway we knew that we were in for something special! Breakfast was delicious - we enjoyed visiting with the other guests and Rich and Bert. They shared stories, gave us information about area attractions and guided us through Amish country roads! We appreciated the morning coffee and goodies... More

A big thank you to Rich and Bert, they were such gracious hosts, we felt so welcome in their home. Our room with bath was very clean, quiet and spacious. The foliage was at its peek and the 360 degree views from the deck were spectacular. We have stayed at many B&Bs but the breakfast here was better than any... More

In short everything is perfect. We keep coming back in the spring and fall year after year. Bert and Rich are great hosts and their Inn is the best I have ever seen. This is a good place to go and enjoy the quiet and scenery. You wont regret coming here.

WOW!!! ....is really the best way to begin. This was such fantastic and personal experience staying here. The owners, Bert and Rich, were such a pleasure to meet and be around. They went out of their way a lot to make sure that we had everything we needed. That's where all the generosity first began. We learned that the rest... More

We had never been to this part of the United States. Our hosts were extremely helpful is directing us to many interesting events and locations. My wife was ecstatic about the quaint homes and the Amish horse drawn buggies. The Hurst House is a magnificently designed and maintained bed and breakfast. Bert and Rich made us feel like family, but... More

We travel to Lancaster County at least twice a year! My family was from Reading, PA,so this area is near and dear to my heart. Whenever/wherever we travel, we only stay at inns. At inns, we love the individual service, the beautiful surroundings of the inn itself, the warmness and hospitality of the innkeeper(s). The Hurst House is one of... More

It is a bad year when we can't work in a visit to Hurst House. Our experiences there have been the best possible. Rich and Bert are a large part of the special mix, added to by gorgeous scenery, a spectacularly appointed house custom-built for a bed and breakfast, and an atmosphere of perfect peace. Every part of our stay... More
