We are so happy we found After Eight B&B. This was our third stay. We have visited many B&Bs in the area, but this one by far is our favorite - no need to look elsewhere. It’s location puts us only a short distance from all the points we like to visit and shop. The rooms are clean, roomy and nicely appointed. Robert, our host, is always pleasant, funny and accommodating. The breakfasts are delicious and ample. We will be returning again and again!

The owner is way too strict. Sign on the door says "Don't knock before 3pm, I won't answer". Then, we were assigned a time for breakfast, there was no choice of when we wanted it and no cereal either. Room was nice but there was hiway noise. In this place you have to follow the rules...I was scared to find out the alternative. too many other choices in the area, I would stay away from this one.

Staying at After Eight is like going home. It is so clean, homey and beautiful. Not only isBob an excellent host but he is an awesome cook and provides you with a great breakfast to start the day. I've stayed there twice now and plan on going back. He is very helpful with information about the area and he's a regular comedian too! Try it you won't be sorry.

This place is the cleanest most comfortable you could want. It has all the amenities, and a congenial, very helpful, and knowlegeable host who makes himself available to answer any questions, or fulfilling your requests to make your stay more pleasant. The best part is that he does this with a sense of personal satisfaction for making the guests comfortable, satisfied, and feeling at home. The breakfasts are fabulous, sumptuous, and Bob caters to reasonable special needs and requests without a problem. All this with a warm comfortable atmosphere, and a sense of humor that makes Bob the ideal host, and gives you the desire to return to "After Eight".

My wife and I, and another couple, just returned from another wonderful 5 day stay at the After Eight B&B. The owner, Robert, is the most gracious and easygoing host of any B&B we have ever stayed at. He has a terrific sense of humor and loves to interact with the guests. All I can say about the gourmet breakfasts, which Robert prepares personally, is that they are delicious and plentiful and beyond what you would expect. The bedrooms and common areas are furnished with antiques and are spotlessly clean.

It is so conveniently located, close to shopping, restaurants and Lancaster County attractions, as well as the bucolic scenes of Amish farms. This was our 7th stay in three years at After Eight and we are already planning our next visit. We have recommended this B&B to family and friends and will continue to do so.
