This was the first B&B we ever stayed at and we were pleasantly surprised! The Inn is in a convienant location, comfortably furnished and the breakfasts were amazing! Owner Rebecca Gallagher is very knowledgable about the area and made our stay amazing!

A small intimate place to get away. Each of the rooms is well appointed and uniquely done. It is like going back 200 years but still having modern conveniences. The breakfasts are always different but always delicious. Rebecca is an excellent cook and goes out of her way to please.

I stayed in the Historic Smithton Inn for several times. I have never had such a nice breakfast, really really good, I think awesome is a better description. The hosts were very nice and helpfull. In my opinion this is the place to stay if you find yourself in the area of Ephrata.

We held our small intimate wedding at the Inn this past weekend. We rented out the entire Inn for our guests. Rebecca and staff could have been more accommodating. The house and grounds were immaculate, the rooms were so cozy we didn't want to leave. Every detail was from the cookies at the registration desk to robes and modern bathrooms... More

Because the Hampton Inn in Ephrata PA had no vacancies we were sent to the Historic Smithton Inn for the evening. So glad the Hampton was full or we would have never experienced this wonderful B&B. The hosts were so, so nice; the accommodations lovely and breakfast was awesome. This is the place to stay if you find yourself in... More

After several weeks of crazy busy activity at work, I decided to take a Friday off at the last minute and drive up to the Lancaster area from DC. Realizing my plans were last minute, I started searching for a charming, historic B&B preferably outside of Lancaster city, and away from the touristy areas. After googling "gay B&Bs Lancaster", I...

On a business trip with my husband and this is where we stayed. Not many think of a bed and breakfast for work travel, but more should. It is the closest thing to being at home. We are in Tailor's cottage, it is a lovely setting. Rebecca, our hostess is so friendly and such a sweet hostess. She provides wonderful... More

Wow what an establishment! The Crimson suite was absolutely stunning! We told Rebecca we were just staying over night but boy did she go above and beyond! We received roses on our pillows fresh bouquet of flowers in a vase which we were able to take with us! She also provided rose pedals and candles for our special night. The... More

The Smithton Inn is absolutely amazing. The location is perfect and the rooms couldn't have been better. A very quaint and quiet place, which was very relaxing. Everyone was so nice and welcoming, I highly recommend!

Two years ago we planned a long weekend getaway that included the Historic Smithton Inn. We enjoyed it so much that travelling from North Carolina to New York we drove an extra 3 hours past the mid-point to stay there again this weekend. The Inn was as beautiful and immaculate as we remembered. We stay at B&Bs across the country... More
