The Smithton Inn is one of the first B&B’s we ever visited and quickly became the standard by which we rate all other B&B’s. It is the perfect combination of historic charm, modern amenities and delicious breakfasts. That alone makes it worthy of ‘5 stars,’ but what really sets it apart are the little things that the innkeepers provide. It... More

I live in Ephrata and have always admired the beautiful Historic Smithton Inn. As a surprise, my husband arranged a night at the Inn as a Christmas gift. 😊 The minute we entered the Inn I realized what a wonderful jewel my community has! The Smithton Inn is absolutely gorgeous! One can feel the history as you walk through the... More

My husband and I stayed at the smithton Inn for a second time for our one year anniversary. We stayed in the red dove suite. It's a beautiful room with a fire place and jacuzzi tub. This was the weekend for the blizzard Jonas to hit. We spent 3 nights snowed in at the Inn. We couldn't have had a... More

We had a lovely time at our new Amish PA B&B. Our room was clean and comfortable as well as fairly priced. Our hostess was friendly and helpful and our breakfast was very yummy. My only regret is that we were not able to stay longer, so...I booked five days this year. Woo to the hoo! There is plenty of... More

This was our first Bed and Breakfast stay, and after this we will probably never stay in a hotel again. We stayed in the Tailor's Cottage which is connected to the main house, but entrance is through a separate door. Having young children makes it very difficult to find a BNB that can accommodate us, given how exuberant children can... More

The Smithton Inn is a traditional B & B in the best way. The hosts are friendly yet unobtrusive, the breakfast delicious, and the building is quite special. We were a bit surprised to find the Inn is on a busy corner, but our room faced the back and was quiet. Our queen bed was comfortable and the sheets quite... More

From the moment we arrived until we left, our visit felt like we were staying with family that truly cared about our comfort. We stayed in the Crimson Dove Suite Large room with a working wood fireplace, jacuzzi and rain shower. Breakfast was relaxing and delicious. We will definitely be returning!!

If you're looking for a relaxing, quaint place to stay, you're search is over :). We've stayed here for several years in a row now for our annual visit to Lancaster County. The Inn is about a fifteen minute ride to the heart of the outlets and Sight and Sound theater. Rebecca & Dave are wonderful hosts & the breakfasts... More

Someone local suggested that I stay at the The Smithton last year when I came to town.They said they had heard rave reviews about this historic inn and they thought I would feel comfortable there. They were right on target and I have been back 2 years in a row! Rebecca, the innkeeper, couldn't have done a better job at... More

We are just back from a stay at the Historic Smithton Inn Bed and Breakfast in Ephrata,Pa. If you are looking for a relaxing stay in a cozy place, this is it. Rebecca and Dave cannot be more welcoming. Rebecca's breakfast is to die for. We have stayed there several times and look forward to going back several more times.... More
