“I Couldn't Think of a More Perfect Place to Spend a Weekend!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

My boyfriend and I were beyond mentally fried and over the city. We decided to get out into the country a little bit, and do something we had never done before - stay at a B&B.

I found the Adamstown Inn online, and it was reasonably priced, the photos didn't look like Great Aunt Gertrude's parlor, and every room had an en-suite fireplace (my one stipulation).

We stayed 2 nights in the Topaz room at the Amethyst Inn. It was amazing. The Amethyst Inn is a big, old (but beautifully maintained) Victorian home, converted into the Inn. Our room was equal parts Victoriana (joie de vie wallpaper and a very ornate cast iron fireplace) and Country - beautiful antique oak furniture. It was just our style (we've been told our apartment, which is in an old Victorian home, looks like a "Hobbit Hole" - in the most flattering, Olde English, cozy way ever, of course!)

The queen sized featherbed was luxurious and we slept like babies. The bathroom was updated, immaculate and the jacuzzi was amazing.

Breakfast was to die for. Four courses each morning of fantastic, unique home cooked goodness. Everything was so fresh and amazing. Their coffee was great (and endless) as well!

The staff was wonderful and warm, but not intrusive. They were incredibly thoughtful. Every day there was a small gift waiting for us on the bed, and when we left they gave us snacks for the road! It snowed overnight the 2nd night, and they even cleaned our car off for us before we woke up.

This place is first rate, gourmet, beautifully decorated and it is a wonderful respite away from Philadelphia. We, much like The Terminator, will be back.

Room Tip: We peeked in all of the empty rooms, and while the Toapz room was the smallest, we found it the most...

Thank your for making this the best surprise for my husband. Our room was perfect, the bed was comfy, the best I have ever had on a vacation.
I could go on and on, really everything was perfect! **Clean clean clean!!**
The owners are funny and kind, as well as the rest of the staff was friendly and helpfull.
Oh and the breakfast very unusual but refreshingly superb!
If you stay on a Friday make sure to bring lots of cash for the green dragon, fresh market with cheese & meats, anything! Black horse restaurant and tavern, awesome place to have romantic dinner! We are looking forward to our next stay!!!
Thank you kindly
Mark & Annett

I stayed at the Amethyst Inn, and had an amazing experience! It is a beautiful home...VERY comfortable, quiet...and sooooooooo comfortable! We stayed in the Amber room, which was amazing! The bed was so comfortable, the fireplace, which is two sided, is warm..and faces the bedroom and the bathroom, where the two person whirlpool tub! It made for a wonderful, romantic weekend!!

Room Tip: The Amber room is our favorite!!

We had a delightful Thanksgiving stay in Firefly Cottage (with two couples staying at the Amethyst Inn). The place was absolutely perfect for our mini-family reunion (11 people), and we had a wonderful time.

We especially appreciated the special touches of yummy banana-chocolate chip bread and a few basics in the refrigerator when we arrived, plus the treasure-trove of toys for our 4-year-old grandson, an extra leaf for the dining table and a roasting pan for the turkey. The kitchen was modern and well-supplied (much more so than most rental houses), the beds were very comfortable, and the bathrooms were well-appointed. Having our own living space in which to gather made for a relaxing weekend, and it was also helpful to have a yard (and a nearby school playground) for our grandson to run around in.

we stayed for the Thanksgiving weekend. It was a great experience! We love the cozy living room and the fireplace in our room. The breakfast is unbelievably good. fruit cup, breakfast tart, chicken sausage, oatmeal ...every day is different! and the delicious hot chocolate is a must! too bad we couldn't stay longer...

My husband and I stayed in the Cobolt Room at the beautiful Amethyst Inn. We were greeted warmly by all the staff even though we arrived several hours early and continued to have excellent service throughout our stay. The Inn is very nicely decorated and we loved the look of the Cobolt Room. The The breakfast was a delicious way to start the morning. We would certainly strongly recommend.
