A terrific weekend...wish we had another day or two! My husband and I needed a getaway and we found the Hurst House right in our back yard! From the moment we arrived we felt at home. The home is spacious with an amazing attention to detail, yet it is so welcoming. We enjoyed our time downstairs playing pool, never made it to the ping pong table. The Gathering Place up in the 2nd floor was a perfect living room to rest, read and watch tv...the cookies and coffee were a great touch! Our room was perfect and breakfast was wonderful. I enjoyed my walk around the lake out back..watching the swans. Beautiful landscaping. The Hursts truly have the gift of hopsitality and we appreciated the many extra special kindnesses that were extended to us. It was a much needed rest before returning to the grind. thank you so much for opening your home to us. We can't wait to return. Marge and Dick Lancaster County, Pa
Breathtaking views, incredible attention to detail in hospitality and architecture of the home, serene setting, beautifully appointed rooms! Staying here was a last minute decision and I was thankful a room was available. My husband and I celebrated our 38th wedding anniversary this weekend here and I dare to say it was more enjoyable than the original place we went on our honeymoon. The kindness and graciousness of Rich and Bert in sharing their beautiful home will long be remembered and appreciated. Betty and Don Ramaley, Easton Pa.
"A needed weekend getaway"
My husband and I needed a weekend getaway from all the stress of life in March 2009. What a GREAT escape for us. This getaway was perfect. It is in a great area away from all the stress of life. The grounds were well kept, the house was absolutely beautiful, the owners greeted us even though we arrived later than expected. Despite being the only guests there for the weekend they catered to our needs (Thanks for the playing cards!!) and breakfasts were great. Thanks to this weekend we even went and bought a coffee maker just like yours! (in the gathering room). We look forward to returning again. Oh, and let's not forget Freddie!!! What an awesome and smart dog.
"Wonderful Home Wonderful Hosts"
Peace and tranquility with a view to die for! Rich and Bert made us feel so welcome in their beautiful home and provided so much information on the local area, we had a wonderful weekend. The rooms are so well designed and extremely comfortable with all the finishing touches anyone could hope for. We hope we have a chance to revisit Hurst House and enjoy American hospitality at it's best.
"an absolute delight"
"The Best Bed and Breakfast in Lancaster County"
I have stayed at many Bed and Breakfast, and this is by far the best. The view of the Lake, Farms, streams, and covered bridge are amazing. The B&B is a Victorian Manson on top of a Mountain. The view is like vacationing in the clouds. Rich and Bert Hurst were the best host . If you are planning to stay at any Bed and Breakfast in Lancaster County PA do yourself a favor and stay at the Best. Frank and Debbie Wells

"We discovered a treasure”
We recently spent a lovely weekend in your special B&B. The scenic view from our room was a welcome sight with the snow and cold temperatures outside.
We felt like family but were treated as guests. You both have the gift of hospitality with your servant’s hearts and hands! What an eye for detail.
Thanks and Blessings

Dear Bert and Rich,
The Hurst House Bed and Breakfast
Thank you for your email. Each day I thought to email you or send you a card expressing our sincere thanks to you for a most beautiful weekend in your most beautiful home. Everything about our stay was wonderful. Our room was lovely, and the view from our room was magnificent. I loved the lake and the swans. Most of all, your hospitality - you made us feel so welcome and so at home. I can't remember when we have ever enjoyed a Bed and Breakfast as much as we did at your home. Breakfast time was very special, and delicious too! Enjoyed sharing conversations with you and the other guests. How lovely and fabulous it all was.
The Cookbook - well, that is another story. I can't tell you enough how much I am enjoying the Bed and Breakfast Cookbook. I am planning on ordering a couple for Christmas gifts. What a treat! I have read each and every recipe and plan on trying something new each week. So far, your Blueberry French Toast is my ultimate favorite. Wow, that sweet potato recipe, I've already volunteered to make the Butter Pecan Sweet Potatoes for Thanksgiving dinner, and I know that will be the hit of the day - I am sure of it.
Our dear friends Betty and Larry Byler are such beautiful people and we are so glad they brought us to you. We will see you again.
Thank you and God Bless.
