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

Dear Bert & Rich, We want to thank you again for a fantastic stay at your B&B. This is the most beautiful B&B we have ever stayed at and will tell the world about it. We celebrated our 48th wedding anniversary there and was wonderful to get to know you both. You made us feel that we have known you... More

This beautiful house was built with being a B&B in mind. Very well designed. Absolutely perfect hosts. Located in farm country on top of a 100 foot hill. You have a 360 degree view of miles of farm land. They have about 17 acres of beautifully landscaped property. Wonderful destination for a wedding or corporate meeting. Being so over the... More

And that is exactly what Hurst House B&B feels like. We did try a different bedroom this visit (I don't think we stayed in the same one twice). Another relaxing, comfy room with a beautiful, peaceful balcony view. Bert and Rich are so welcoming. It really does feel like coming "home" to extended family. The breakfasts are delicious and recipes... More

We stayed here two nights after our wedding September 20, 2014. Rich and Bert are examples of Christians who's love for The Lord is reflected in their personalities. We are an older couple and did not want to go far away from home. This was perfect in every way, the room and the breakfast was awesome. We would love to... More

The Hurst House is an absolutely beautiful B&B with unbelievable views! Every room has a view because the house is located on the apex of a tall hill. The pond has swans and the surrounding farmland is so pretty. Rich and Bert are wonderful innkeepers who made us feel welcome and a part of their family. The breakfast time was... More

An amazing B&B in a beautiful part of Pennsylvania. When we arrived we couldn't believe it was a B&B (See Photo's) We had the Golden Pond room which had a wonderful view of the lake. Our room was very spacious and immaculate, as is the rest of the house. The hosts were very friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the... More
