A Perfect Stay

We found the After Eight Bed and Breakfast quite by accident, but it turned out to be a wonderfully lucky find. The house is beautiful with comfortable living room and parlor decorated with antiques and much art. The bedroom was also comfortable as well as lovely with a huge, modern bath. Breakfasts were amazing and Robert, the innkeeper is a gracious host. He had lots of sightseeing tips for us and made our time perfect.

absolutely wonderful

I wanted to give some feedback regarding the After Eight Bed & Breakfast in Lancaster, PA. I've never been to a B&B before so this was my first experience and I'm so happy that After Eight was the first place. The location was perfect, the food delicious, the hospitality wonderful, the rooms quaint, cozy, and perfect. Robert Hall is the innkeeper and he was absolutely wonderful. His morning "entertainment" was a treat; I loved his sense of humor and laid-back demeanor. He was so easy-going and personable. I would (and have) recommend After Eight to my friends and family and I DEFINITELY plan to go back soon (possibly this fall).

Wonderful hospitality

My husband, Paul, and myself, along with friends from Houston traveling with us throughly enjoyed our stay at the AfterEight B&B. The breakfasts were wonderful surprises each morning - you'd swear you were in a 5 star hotel. Beautiful presentations and wonderfully tasty. Hospitality is superior and Bob(the innkeeper)is very helpful pointing out the must sees in the area. We just wish the inn wasn't so far from La.- we'd be there more often just to relax.
