We invite you to The Hurst House Bed and Breakfast Lancaster PA, located in beautiful Ephrata, the heart of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The Hurst House offers the ultimate bed and breakfast experience with our elegant Victorian mansion located on top of the Katce Boucle (Cat’s Back Hill). It overlooks hundreds of beautiful Amish and Mennonite farms in the heart of the Pennsylvania Dutch Country. Seeing is believing! Please have a look at our photo galleries and slideshow. Relax on your own private balcony and sip coffee as you watch farmers work their rich farmland in the “Garden Spot of the World”. The scenery surrounding our property is spotted with windmills, covered bridges, one-room schoolhouses and farms with silos, cows, horses, chickens and lush vegetable gardens. Enjoy a refreshing stay in one of our five distinctively decorated rooms, each displaying a magnificent view of the countryside. Our stunning vista is the best of any Lancaster PA Bed and Breakfast.

The property is beautiful! There are not only activities in the area to see and do but even if you just want to stay in they have a rec room with pool, ping pong and board games. Not to mention walking around the property and enjoy the beautiful pond and view. The owners, Rich and Bert are beautiful people. They make you feel right at home and welcome you like you are family .Everything about our weekend away was perfect. So relaxing

I have visited the Hurst House a few times over the years. In the past, I have brought my childhood friend for some much needed R & R. It's a place of rejuvenation and relaxation! This year after suffering the traumatic loss of my husband of 34 years I brought my special friend Jeff. We have known each other for over 15 years and apparently he couldn't pass up the opportunity to propose since the Hurst House is such a beautiful location, and peaceful atmosphere. (I said "Yes!", by the way!) Bert and Rich were top notch as always. I never thought this would even be a possibility but now, we are looking at a possible destination wedding sometime soon and the Hurst House is that destination!

We stayed in the Golden Pond room the first week in August. Of all the B & B s that we have stayed in. The Hurst House is the very best. The view was amazing. The room and bed were great. The breakfast was yummy.. And the owners were fantastic, caring and helpful. I would love to stay there once a month. Evelyn W
