We enjoyed the stay so much here. It was wonderful and the breakfast was to die for. Robert was such a great host and cook! He took the time to give us some suggestions on where to go for different things to see while we were there and we took some of the suggestions and had a great time. We really liked the Farmers Market in Manheim and can't wait to go back! We bought the cookbook from Robert with the recipes in it and that is a great cookbook. Robert claimed he didn't know how to cook when he started the bed and breakfast, but there was no way we could tell, as the food was fabulous and we couldn't wait until the next morning to see what new breakfast menu we were going to have. Thank you, thank you, thank you Robert for such a wonderful time!

We enjoyed our overnight stay at After Eight immensely! The property is beautiful and Robert is a wonderful host. His breakfast was the best, and even came with comedic entertainment! He offers wonderful recommendations about local restaurants and activities tailored to the guests' interests, and although we were familiar with the area, he introduced us to some places we had never tried before. Several of the guests enjoyed working together on a jigsaw puzzle in the common area in the evening, and he also had a good selection of games and movies available. Our room was beautifully decorated and equipped with everything we needed for our stay. The only downside, which is beyond the innkeeper's control, is that there is a good bit of road noise from Rte. 30.

Room Tip: If you enjoy having a private area to relax, the Deluxe Suite has a private outside entrance and a s...

We always enjoy our stay at After Eight Bed and Breakfast. We have stayed here 7 times and would not consider staying at another Bed and Breakfast in the Lancaster. Robert is the ultimate host! He attends to every need his guests have. He served us excellent breakfasts and is very knowledgeable about places to go and restaurants to visit. He provides guests with snacks if they so desire and always has a puzzle out and has board games to play. We had a very relaxing stay and appreciate Robert's caring nature and hospitality!

Room Tip: Choose a room in the back of the house; it is quieter. All the rooms are beautifully decorated with...

Robert is a wonderful innkeeper- this was our third visit to After Eight and we enjoyed every minute of it. We had room 2- on the bottom floor - bed was extremely comfortable and the Bathroom was very large- nice little closet for hanging coats, clothes etc.
This room was a little noisier than the room we had before since it was toward the front of the house and on the bottom floor- but we slept great- he even had a noise machine that played ocean sounds which we used.
All of the bathrooms & the main rooms were recently painted very nicely.
Breakfast was plentiful - Apple turnover cheese strata, sausage, fresh pineapple & strawberries & really good coffee and of course juice & water. Robert usually has home-made cookies out as well and there is always water bottles and soda and sometimes juice- also snacks like crackers, peanuts, granola bars & even microwave popcorn.
You must check out the puzzle table- love it- and his year round tree- which was decorated with easter decorations this time around.
Robert really knows the area and always has suggestions of places to go/things to see- & we LOVE his Breakfast Humor! If you can't take a joke... don't stay here:-)
Can't wait to visit again! Hopefully sooner rather than later!

Room Tip: top floor - rear of house is less noisy

My husband and I started our B and B excursions at After 8 and I have to say, the experience is unparalleled! Robert, the proprietor is warm, funny and truly cares about his guests' comfort. He has a quick smile and is always ready with suggestions on interesting things to do while out in Lancaster. The rooms and grounds are impeccable and the convenience of the location is second to none. We love going to After 8 and try to make a pilgrimage out there at least once a year. As long as After 8 is in the heart of Amish Country, we'll keep coming back because it truly is a home away from home! Kami and Tommy

Room Tip: Book as far out in advance as you can- especially if you want a room with a jacuzzi!!!

Our host, Robert, gets an A++++++++++++++ in hospitality! This BnB makes you feel right at home from the moment the front door is open. The house is beautifully decorated in an antique style with all the modern ammenities! The rooms are cozy and cheerful, the individual rooms are bright and comfortable and impeccably CLEAN! The breakfast food is beyond scrumptious! Location couldn't be better...close to shopping but away from the hustle and bustle. I would highly recommend this BnB to everyone I know. We are looking forward to staying there again!
