My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the B&B in August of 2016. We stayed in the Sage room. The Place is restored to its dated historic time period and it is beautiful and very clean. The woodwork is amazing. Dave and Rebecca the innkeepers are just lovely. Rebecca is an AMAZING cook! She made me gluten free meals... More

My wife and I just returned from a two night stay at this wonderful b and b just outside of the main town of Ephrata, Pa. Our room was very comfortable, nicely decorated and quiet. The breakfasts were very creative and well prepared. The downstairs sitting room was also very pleasant. It was too hot to be outside, but the... More

We stayed two nights in early August. As a party of 3, we had two bedrooms, the Sage room, an accessible bedroom on the ground floor, and the Blue Room on the second floor. Both were absolutely lovely. Each had great features including working fireplaces - although in August we were more interested in working air conditioners, which we had.... More

My husband and I had a wedding in Lancaster to attend. We decided to make it a weekend get a way with just the two of us! (We left the children back home ). We researched different places to stay and couldn't find exactly what we were looking for. I finally came across the Historic Smithton Inn on this website.... More

This B&B is incredible! Everything about it is outstanding, so I will not go into every aspect of this first-class experience. Rebecca, the hostess, is probably the most incredible of the experiences... but not the only one(s). The rooms are beautiful, spacious, and clean! Breakfast is to die for! Not too large, and served to perfection, and the atmosphere is... More

My husband and I stayed one night at the inn, even though they typically require a two-night minimum over the summer. Rebecca waived the two-night minimum since this particular room would have been empty between two other reservations the night before and the night after. We also requested an in-room couples massage. Rebecca touched base with the masseuse and returned... More

Historic Smithton Inn is a true gem. The innkeepers, Rebecca and Dave, have beautifully maintained the historic integrity of the building while making you feel like a guest in the home of dear family members. It's a warm atmosphere, immaculate and breakfast is absolutely delicious. The decor is beautiful and in keeping with charm of Lancaster County. The Inn is... More

We spent the evening at Smithton Inn about a week ago. We thoroughly enjoyed everything about our visit. We stayed in the Red Room. The room was very comfortable and welcoming. The softness of the bed linens just seemed to envelope you making for a wonderful night's sleep. We really loved the thoughtfulness of the welcome gift bag for us... More

We spotted the Historic Smithton Inn on the web and thought it looked interesting so booked a stay. It turned out to be the best decision we made for our trip. This B&B is simply wonderful.

Lovely inn, the decor fits with the age of the inn and it is very clean and welcoming. There are working fireplaces in each room and a beautiful garden to sit inn. Rebecca basically cooks breakfast of your choosing. We stayed in the Red room, they all look great...the yellow room a little basic.
