After Eight Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 5 Gordonville B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 March 2012

Becomming our favorite B&B because it combines that old antique home feel with a few modern items like cable TV in the rom and wifi! BTW the breakfast are the BEST! Robert loves to interact with us during breakfast also, he just doesn't cook serve and leave. Great way to start your day!

We visited After Eight for New Year's Eve and New Year's Night. Robert, the innkeeper, had arranged a Murder Mystery Event. What a fun way to spend New Year's Eve interacting with other couples! Robert had arranged for every detail to make his guests feel welcome. The house was tastefully decorated; the rooms were immaculately clean; the food served was delicious; and Robert was and is a most gracious host! We've already booked another stay! Thank you, Robert for all you do to provide a wonderful get-away for your guests!

What a wonderful stay we had at After Eight. We were first warmly greeted by Patches the cat then by innkeeper Robert. The house was decorated for christmas thru out and in every single nook. Everything was tastefully done and very inviting.
Check in was smooth and Robert gave us a tour of the main floor along with some ideas for the evening.
Our room was nicely decorated with lots of antiques and nice quality pieces. The bathroom was spacious and everything was spotless. Imagine my surprise when i heard the clip clop of passing buggys right in front of the house!! You can't ask for better ambiance than that:)
We had a great night's sleep and the next morning had a fabulous breakfast made by Robert.
We will definitely be going back to visit again and we will be making our reservations at After Eight, when we do!
Thanks Robert for you hospitality, your stories, history, and ideas for the area.

This was our first time to visit and we stayed in one of the cottages in the back. It was absolutely perfect for the 3 of us and very comfortable and clean. We couldn't have asked for a better Host/Innkeeper! The friendliness and down home feeling we received was very welcomed. I love the fact that there is a whole closet full of games and puzzles! How awesome is that?? !!! Robert is very knowledgeable about the area and all of the places he suggested we see were wonderful! We were just there the weekend of 12/02/11 and found the overall experience to be absolutely charming. We will most DEFINITELY be back! We live approximately 5 hours away and I am so looking forward to our next stay there! Most defintely worth it!

Every time we visit After Eight it feels like we are coming home to visit with a distant family. From the ambience to the delicious food, stays at After Eight are relaxing and stress reducing. Whether completing a jigsaw puzzle or helping guests to plan their daily itinerary, Robert is an outstanding innkeeper. This has become an annual trip that I hope we can continue to make for years to come. Linda and Fred Rounds

Room Tip: We like the porch room because it's right off the porch and has a separate outdoor entrance. It...

We took a chance and booked a room at After Eight B&B after finding it on the PA Dutch Country website. We were pleased to find it a charming spot, that was conveniently located to EVERYTHING in the area that we wanted to do. Robert was a fantastic host, very knowledgeable of the area and sure knows what he is doing. He was kind enough to mark up a map with suggestions of where and what, and his breakfasts were top notch - we were stuffed all day! The inn itself is beautiful, and the rooms are spotless and comfortable. Such a nice touch too that there are cold and hot drinks as well as snacks and kitchen items such as glasses, plates, etc. available at all times. The view from the back porch of the home looks out onto an Amish Farm - what a picturesque spot. We would go back in a second, and would highly reccomend the After Eight B&B to everyone.

Room Tip: We stayed int he Sunrise Bay Window Room - nice and sunny with lots of windows and very spacious. N...

After Eight has become, for us, a home away from home. Because of Robert's attention to details, immaculate rooms, including the common areas and being a great host, we have stayed in excess of 35 times!

Robert is very knowledgeable about the area and is always more than happy to help you make your stay a pleasant one. He will give you plenty of suggestions of things to do and see and will recommond great places to eat.

The B&B resides close to theaters, shopping and restaurants. When you are there, however, you are transported into a serene countryside scenery in a relaxing atmosphere.

Robert's breakfasts are amazing even though he isn't a chef, he has mastered this art as well as his dry sense of humor. You will wake up each morning to a mouth-watering breakfast to start your day.

We have even booked the whole B&B for a special occasion with family and friends. Everyone enjoyed themselves so much we did it again the following year. This is testament enough that the After Eight is a special place to stay in Lancaster County. So what are you waiting for? Book a stay at the After Eght and I guarantee you, you won't be disappointed!!! Donna D.
