Very rarely do I find someone who understands what "vegetarian" means, so I was happy (delighted rather) to find a host who exactly understood what my dietary needs were. I was travelling with my parents, and Rebecca... More

The Inn is absolutely beautiful. We were traveling with our dog, and this wonderful place is dog friendly. It has one room set aside for dogs, as it has its own entrance, so we grabbed it. What a pleasant surprise to find an entire apartment. It was adorable. Two floors with a lovely living room, kitchen, screened porch on the... More

I spent the past 4th of July weekend with my family(wife and a 6 year old son) in the Smithon Inn in Ephrata. We had very relaxing time in this historic yet beautifully restored and conveniently located inn. All rooms seem to have colored theme and ours was the "Red Room". The inn itself had a personal feeling of being... More

My wife and I had a very enjoyable few days at the Smithton Inn. Rebecca was awesome in helping us figure out things to do while we were there. The breakfast every morning was superb made from local ingredients. I would definitely stay there again. Thanks so much and look forward to seeing you again.

They even had snacks and water bottles that... More

We absolutely love this place. We recently made our 3rd visit in the past 18 months and each time we return, we feel like we've "come home." The innkeepers, Rebecca and Dave are warm, welcoming, so friendly and make their guests feel like family. Of course, we can't forget the "inn dog", Lucky and look forward to her greetings every...
