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...

My husband and I desired a much needed getaway and reprieve from our demanding work and parenting schedules. I love the Lancaster area; my husband and I appreciate the serenity and simpleness of life in that area. In my search for affordable yet tasteful and comfortable lodging I found the Historic Smithton Inn. Besides the affordable prices, it was the... More

Rebecca and David are very nice, polite and helpful and will try to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Rooms are clean, spacious and well equipped. Blue and chocolate room face the street so you might find red room more quiet. They put the second B into B&B at Smithton Inn, because your day will start with AMAZING breakfast.... More

This is our fourth stay at the Smithton Inn and it was every bit as wonderful as the first! The rooms are super clean and have all the amenities like wifi, tv, soft sheets and comfy robes. We stayed in the Red Room and it was very quiet with a great view of the beautiful back yard. Breakfast was AWESOME... More
