I want to thank my fellow TA reviewers for bringing me to Hurst House with their thoroughly positive and accurate reviews of this previously unknown jewel in Amish country. All the reviews justly rave about Bert & Rich, the amazingly gracious hosts. They went way out of their way to make sure we had healthier options for our breakfasts, including making us oatmeal and buying Cheerios for us. (Personal hint to Rich and Bert: I think other guests would appreciate being asked in advance about dietary restrictions and offered alternatives to the regular hot dishes you offer.) The big surprise were the views of the farmland and surrounding hills from this very high point in the county. Rich designed the house with an eye for maximizing the views from all 3 levels and every room. We were blessed with gorgeous sunsets and sunrises which we could appreciate in nearly 360 degrees of glory from this unbelievable spot. The rooms are big and have balconies to farther partake of the vistas. The little fitness room could use a bit of work but it was adequate for me and offered more in-house than any other b 'n b I've ever been to. The location is perfect for exploring every aspect of the area: Lancaster city; the outlets on route 30; the antiques in Adamstown; the shops in New Holland, Intercourse, and Bird-in-Hand; and the charm of Lititz; as well as exploring all the farmland roads that show off the countryside to its best advantage. The "gathering room" on the second floor where all the guest rooms are located really worked to provide 24 hour access to hot beverages and the refridgerator, but most of all a place to chat with other guests. Similarly the family style breakfast turned into extended chats around the table sharing travel tips and life experiences. And there is free wifi, which was helpful finding restaurants. Many thanks to Bert and Rich for providing a superb weekend getaway for us.
