“Great B&B in Amish Country”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

After Eight B&B is really nice, and conveniently located in the heart of Amish country. Inn Keeper Robert is as helpful at explaining local attractions and navigating around as he is a GREAT chef. His breakfasts are wonderful, and presentation is straight off of a magazine cover in appearance. The decor is eclectic and warm, yet sophisticated with a designer's taste. Don't miss strolling the ground's impressive gardens and walk-ways. Many plant species that Robert will be glad to tell you about. Most impressive is the 6 ft. ornamental thistle that looks absolutely alien. After Eight is easy to find and conveniently located to all the area sights. We stayed there for 4 days and completely enjoyed the great hospitality. Thanks Robert!

Room Tip: 2 rooms have private entrances, as well as access from the main hall.

The most charming, comfortable B& B in the area. Robert, owner, provides everything for your comfort and care. Great beds, great breakfasts...fantastic showers!! Exquisite att'n to every detail. You will want for nothing. A wonderful place to stop over and rest, relax in his beautiful parlour or garden...near all...our 3rd visit, we'll return again in a few weeks. Estelle & Ernie

My wife and I spent the weekend at After Eight to celebrating our 33 wedding anniversary. Everything about the stay was beyond our expectations. Robert, your host is very knowledgeable of the area and made numerous recommendations for activities, restaurant's and my personal favorite, ice cream shops to visit. Yes as many have commented, you are right on route 30 but we didn't find the traffic noise to be an issue. If you are into them, there is always a jigsaw puzzle underway to help pass the time if you just want to kick back and relax. The breakfasts are delicious to say the lease and come with stories about the B&B and or humorous stories given to Robert from previous guests. We were in the "Balcony Room" and found it to be spotless and very comfortable. The private balcony was nice to sit on and plan your day as you look over the garden and cornfields. I can say for sure we will be back! Only reason I didn't give an excellent for sleep quality is the bed is only a queen and my wife and I are accustom to our king (she kept elbowing me).

My girlfriend and I just stayed there last weekend and what an amazing time! I wanted to take Terri away for a romantic getaway and After Eight definitely delivered! The room was amazing! It was decorated so nice, the king bed was very comfortable, and even had a seperate sitting room, the bathroom with the 2 person jacozzi was a nice treat. And in the morning the breakfast was so very yummy. Robert is a great cook and a very good host; he definitely can guide you on the best local places to go. We will make this an annual trip, and our special ocassion destination

Just had our fourth stay at after eight. Love to come here a couple of times a year for a relaxing getaway. Lovely rooms, comfortable beds, and delicious breakfasts. Robert is very knowledgable about the area, and takes excellent care of his guests.

The After Eight B&B is a very warm and comfortable place to relax and enjoy the country atmosphere that exudes. Cannot pass up Robert's cullinary "treats" as well as the breakfasts. Robert is a fun host and is more than helpfull in getting what you need. Our suite came with a new king-sized bed on this trip and it was wonderful; slept like logs (if they sleep).
