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

We first saw this B&B on one of our annual cycling trips through Lancaster Pa and decided to stay here for our next trip. We had the entire house for our group and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are all gorgeous from local decor to Italian chandeliers. We were warmly greeted when we arrived and the friendly service continued... More

John & I have stayed many nights in Lancaster for business and pleasure and never knew the Hurst House existed. By luck we found them on the internet and thought this place looks to good to be true. We booked this past weekend and believe me THIS PLACE IS AMAZING. The moment we pulled up the drive way we felt... More

We have stayed here a few times and have enjoyed every stay. Richard and Bert are wonderful hosts and each room is beautifully decorated. We enjoy the peace and quiet of sitting on the balcony or porch and looking out over the countryside. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a quiet place to stay with wonderful food for...

We were celebrating our 50th Anniversary. We live in Lititz and decided to go local. It was a wonderful experience. The house is beautiful and a lovely view of the country site. Bert gave us a tour of the house and then we were on our own. Bert & Rich were great hosts and served a lovely and tasty breakfast.... More

My husband and I have never stayed in a B&B before and did not know what to expect. From the moment we arrived until the day we left it was like being part of a big family. Bert greeted us at the door, took us on a tour of the beautiful house and explained how the whole process works. We... More

Husband and I stayed here in late March and as luck would have it, we were the only guests that evening. Everything about this Inn is top notch. Quality of the structure and hospitality of the innkeepers are far superior to anything we have ever experienced at any other Bed and Breakfast! Unparalleled, actually. After navigating the scenic drive to... More

The accommodations were great. A beautiful experience, but the hospitality and conversation exceeded even the beautiful house. We had a great time and even though I had to go to work every day, my wife was able to come back HOME and relax after dropping me off. We even had a great evening of music in the music room. Thank...

The Hurst House allowed us to host our small wedding on their stunning property. My family stayed there and just adored the home as well as the beautiful views!! The wedding went off without a hitch. The accommodations were perfect and more than we expected~ fireplaces and recliners in every room! The breakfasts were delicious and we enjoyed the company... More

Without question, this inn is unique in two ways: The property's physical location atop what is called Cat's Back, a promintory that, once you've ascended the driveway that's about a thirty-degree pitch, provides unparallelled views of the entire region. This alone could make the journey worth it, but once you enter the inn proper, you become immersed in decor comprised... More
