“Perfect scenery in a lovely setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2013

This Bed and Breakfast sets itself apart as it rests atop a hill overseeing the serene countryside of the Amish farmlands. Bert & Rich bring a friendly warmth plus comfort to the large, luxurious home on scenic acreage. Every detail they have provided for their guests. We would highly recommend this B & B!

We just returned from our third relaxing getaway at The Hurst House. Rich and Bert Hurst have seen to it that everything you need is provided and continue to offer their help. Having grown up, worked and raised their family locally, they have a tremendous, first-hand, personal knowledge of the area and are ever so willing to answer questions, help plan your wanderings and even chart a map, if you so desire. Kind, Christian folk, the Hursts have truly made this palatial house a welcoming home. Nothing will disappoint you!

Room Tip: We love the Swan Lake room with a smashing view out the back of the house but the Golden Pond room w...

We've stayed in B&Bs all over the US and have never stayed in one that even comes close to The Hurst House. Bert and Rich are outstanding hosts, the food was great and the views were breathtaking. This facility was designed and built as a B&B yet gives the feel of an old country inn. Sitting high on a hill, you can see for miles especially the surrounding farms. Be sure to have Rich point out the covered bridge and ask him to tell the story of how he preserved the view from a newly constructed barn.

My husband and I stayed here for our wedding anniversary. We've stayed at many bed and breakfasts. The Hurst House Bed and Breakfast is our favorite thus far. The views are wonderful. Is was relaxing to sit out on the balcony and watch the swans in the pond, hear the frogs serenading us and taking in the view of the Amish farms. Breakfast was excellent. Bert and Rich are friendly, warm people. The bed and breakfast isn't too far from anything we wanted to go to but it's out far enough that you don't have the noise of traffic. It was great to exercise in the exercise room along with playing ping pong in the game room. It is just a very relaxing getaway.

Owners are wonderful, facility is beautiful, views are incredible, breakfast and hospitality top shelf. Truly enjoyed our stay. If you are planning a trip to Lancaster County, this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms have private a private balcony, but if available choose a room overlooking the lake.

We have stayed at many B&B's over the years and Hurst House is one of the best. Rich and Bert were great hosts, going the extra mile to make us feel welcome and helping us with our travel plans. The location is gorgeous with great views of the surrounding Amish and Mennonite farms. Excellent breakfasts and wonderful conversation. We will recommend Hurst House to family and friends.

We have been going to B&B's in Lancaster for the last 10 or so years, and this is by far the best. The owners, Bert and Rich, are so welcoming and hospitable. The whole house is spotless and beautiful. Rich built the inn and has brought doors, lighting, etc from all over the world and he is happy to share the info. It is very impressive as you drive up the hill to Hurst House, as it sits way up on mountain. Down below the back of the B&B is a man made lake with 2 swans. The view is breathtaking! With only 5 rooms, we were a group of 10 at breakfast and we had fun sharing our experiences. The food was bountiful and delicious. The pictures in the brochure don't do Hurst House justice. You need to go there yourself to see what a magnificent place it is.

Room Tip: We looked at them all and they are all beautiful. Some face the lake and some face the countryside.
