“A Fantastic Place to Stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

We have stayed many times at this Bed and Breakfast. We have always enjoyed our stay. Robert is an excellent host! The rooms are comfortable and immaculate; the breakfasts are always delicious; and Robert is always willing and able to recommend places to visit or eat and give directions. We have been to other B&Bs, but Robert has spoiled us (his B&B is our favorite)!

We have been to After Eight several times, both spring, fall, and winter. It is always like going home. Robert is the perfect host making everyone feel comfortable. His recommendations and directions are always spot on.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the fields are quieter. The highway can be very loud all night.

Our favorite place to weekend. Robert is a great host. Breakfast is always delicious. We have stayed in four different rooms and have loved everyone. Robert recommends great restaurants and great new places to explore. Can't wait to go back!

My wife and , along with another couple, just returned from a four night stay (our 11th.) at the After Eight Bed and Breakfast in Gordonville (Paradise) PA. We keep going back because staying at the After Eight is always such an enjoyable experience. Robert Hall, the innkeeper, is ALWAYS mindful of his guests' needs and comfort. The breakfasts are great and plentiful.
I have recommended this B&B to friends in the past and will continue to do so in the future.

I have absolutely nothing negative to say about this Bed and Breakfast. It's a lovely place and Robert is an excellent host. The breakfasts were outstanding and we enjoyed our morning conversations. This review is for the purpose of adding a little more information for those who might have concerns over the accessibility of the residence and accommodations for the handicapped. We stayed for 5 nights in one of the cottages which is a short walk from the main house where breakfast is served. One is required to go up a couple of steps to enter the house and also be able to negotiate a rather steep sidewalk that joins the house with the cottages (the 2 cottages are joined like a duplex). The cottages are very comfortable and private however, the bathroom floors are elevated and accessible only by stepping up into them. Otherwise, the duplex is all one level and there are no steps required to come and go by way of the front doors - only the steep walkway. There are also back doors to the cottages but they are accessible by way of a flight of steps. If you are not confined to a wheelchair and can handle a few steps, I highly recommend staying here. The "After Eight" has a very welcoming and comfortable atmosphere and Robert can provide you with any information or recommendations (and coupons!) for things to do in the area. The only thing I can think of that might be a problem for some is the location. The main house sits on a busy highway and there is some traffic noise but we could barely hear it from the duplex which sits further back from the street.

This was my 4th time to After Eight in 6 years. Each time was better than before. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and the room was decorated beautifully. Rob again made fabulous meals ( as usual) as well as recomending a great dinner spot ( "The Old Ironside Inn"). We will definitely be back in the spring.

Beautiful bed & Breakfast with a very caring innkeeper who makes extremely delicious food. Would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone coming to the Lancaster area. Great food, good fun, overall a very relaxing experience with something for everyone. Centrally located to many attractions. Innkeeper is very knowledgeable of surrounding areas and helpful in finding the right place to go.

Room Tip: Take a look at the website, any room is great.
