I have stayed at this B&B twice. once for my birthday (during grad school, perfect time for a break), & another time a few months later (also during grad school, while i was interning, even better time for a break!). The staff was excellent. friendly, accommodating, & they remembered us when we returned the 2nd time. the rates are also super, duper reasonable, considering how nice the place is & how just PRETTY it is.
We stayed in the Jade room both times, b/c that room has a memory foam (king size) bed & we have jacked up backs which seem to stubbornly persist in remaining jacked thru the years. That room also has a gas fireplace, a 2-person jacuzzi tub & truly is 100% awesomely decorated. it has an old organ, a nice big comfy wingback chair, teal walls, gorgeous curtains, lots of really comfy, cozy & attractive details. also, it is a verrrry romantic room, & a quite romantic house.
The house is a victorian, & i think that the decor is not true, authentic victorian, b/c true, period-victorian is petty darn tacky. BUT, it is close enough for anal-retentives like me, without the knick-knacks everywhere, the scary patterns or muddy-rust, extremely dark green or other depressing colors the victorian era's design consisted of. The thing is, this place is just beautiful. very pleasing to the eye, some very different antique pieces (i hope so, in the antique's capital of the usa!), and quite a relaxing atmosphere. so for those who like to see an historically accurate building consistent with its original design, this should be a good place for you, b/c it is not far off the original period mark, but manages to be super tasteful. there is also a realllllly whimsical quality to this house & it's decor. i think this reflects the owners' personalities, which are, as i said above, pleasant & amusing.
Both times we went were during winter (well, fall & winter), so we did not get to see the killer back yard foliage :( but i'd like to go in spring next time. I will say that the front, wraparound porch is delightful. there is a ton of lovely little objects out there, greenery arrangements, etc, and a PORCH SWING YAYYYY!! you can smoke out there, too, if you smoke.
the breakfasts are really good. the room in which guests eat breakfast is really good, too. fireplace, pretty, table service, very pretty, very lovely in the morning with the sunshine. the late-night snacks are good. During the colder months, we brought our own bottles of wine, & were able to put them on the sill right outside our room's window instead of using the fridge downstairs. b/c who wants to do the stairs every time you need a refill when drinking wine?
Also, this place is right on the main road in adamstown. you can walk to the mad hatter antique mall (maybe 2-3 blocks), which is not a bad mall at all. make sure in warmer months, you go to schupp's grove flea market. it is the best flea market i've been to. it's full of cool, old junk, vs just junk. great deals. closer to the turnpike are some other antique malls in which i have gotten killer steal-deals on great pieces over several trips. Adamstown is by far my fave antiquing place. this is not necessarily b/c of the huge selection (tho i do love that, b/c americans loooooove options) but because of the deals on their antiques. & really, unless you are pretty familiar with adamstown & its antique malls, have been there enough that you dont need to spend the night in order to have 2 full days to antique (which is actually not enough given the amount of malls), it is best to stay over. I like the adamstown inns' B&B, & i wont stay elsewhere in or near adamstown. i make a trip to adamstown just to stay there for a romantic, quiet, relaxing weekend. the B&B is so nice that you really could just skip the antiquing & stay in with your honey all weekend. :)
i've only stayed in the jade room, & it is definitely where i'd stay again. the 3rd floo...
