The Lititz House was an unexpected find! We frequent B&Bs, and this one did not disappoint. The adjoining rooms we shared were spacious and uncluttered. The shared bath was also very spacious. (Our only complaint was that there was no exhaust fan, but understandable for the age of the house. The window was easy to raise and we remedied the problem in no time.) Everything was very clean, and there were plenty of towels for our use, as well as an iron and ironing board. The common sitting room, just outside of our rooms, was a great place to hang out and read, or watch television. There were no tvs in the rooms we had, which was no problem for us...still if you want to watch something, there were ample DVD choices in the sitting room. Coffee was provided there each morning before the 8:30 breakfast time. And the breakfasts were so yummy and plentiful! The hosts were very jovial and full of charm...they know the town well, and can steer you to any eatery or shopping destinations that you ask about. We will return to the Lititz House in the future.
The best kept secret in Lancaster County is The Tea Kettle Inn, Manheim. With only four rooms, it is very peaceful, and has a beautiful back porch on which to enjoy the lovely grounds. One room is very large and appears to sleep 6-8 people, a roomy space for those traveling with children, and with great prices what family could resist! We have stayed in the the other three rooms and each is special in its own way. We now prefer the Very Nearly Tea Room as it is on the more quiet side, but all rooms are lovely. The Innkeepers are great--friendly and helpful! They obviously love what they’re doing.
The room was very nice. The owners were away when we were there so I believe one of their friends was ruuning the B&B for them. She was very pleasant but seemed rushed doing it by herself. The breakfast was OK but very small portion and no variety. On the fence on whether I would stay again. It was a very nice visit but not sure if I got my money's worth.
This was our third stay at the Hurst House. It has become one of the main reasons we come to the Lancaster area! Our hosts, Rich and Bert, are so very kind and friendly. We love our conversations with them. Since they have an elevator, getting our luggage to the room is so easy.The 360 degree views from their hilltop location are breathtaking. You will never be disappointed when you stay here!
Karen & Mil are two of the nicest people we have met. We spent 4 nights at Hammer Creek Hideaway and I cannot believe the attention to detail that the both of them provided.. Absolutely, this is by far the best accommodation that we have encountered. The warm and inviting appearance of the B&B outside continues inside. Bring your appetite as the breakfast that Karen prepares for you is amazing. !We arrived as GUESTS and left as FRIENDS..We are already planning our return visit....Helen & Jim from Canada.
Our recent stay at the Lititz House B&B was made perfect by the graciousness and warmth of the owners John and Heidi! In addition to being the perfect hosts, they prepared delicious breakfasts. The property is lovely (inside and out) and very roomy and comfortable. Everything is spotless and our stay was relaxing and perfect! Thank you..we will definitely return!
Everything about our stay was lovely except breakfast. Did not care for breakfast either morning. Eggs and bacon, pancakes, waffles or similar preferred. Coffee was good. Hosts were nice but they seemed uncomfortable being friendly.
This place is our home-away-from-home when we need to take a break from the pace of life. We enjoy the room, the house and grounds, the breakfast, and our visits with the hosts. You have to try it out!
this is an incredible place to stay! The beauty! The Farmland! the clip clop of horses at all times of the day! The Hurst House is meticulous, comfortable and the owners make you feel right at home from the minute you step thru the door. The balconies right off the rooms on the back side of house make for beautiful picture opportunities as well as beautiful quiet time...Breakfast around the table each morning affords time to meet and learn a little about others staying at this wonderful place! to keep it short, YES we have already booked another stay and can't wait!
Beautiful setting, fantastic rooms, unparalleled hospitality....everything you hear is true and then some. If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Lancaster County, search no further. This is it!
We wanted to bike the beautiful farmlands with friends and this B and B was the perfect home base. The house is beautiful, the views spectacular and Rich and Bert were so welcoming and accommodating. I had special dietary requests and they were happy to oblige and didn't make me feel like it was any trouble at all. Felt totally special during our stay. It was our second time staying with them and it won't be our last.
This is a warm & friendly B&B with great hosts. Our room was quiet & comfortable. They provided an early breakfast for us (it was a business weekend with early starts). But John & Heidi really went above & beyond when we had van trouble and had to bring an open trailer with all our product, helping us secure it on the property. Peace of mind!
Wonderfully decorated, quaint house that is right in the middle of Lititz historical district. Everything is within walking distance. Very good and friendly service. I would recommend a stay at the Alden House
This B&B is not only pleasantly charming and welcoming, but, the couple that owns it (Rich and Bert) take hospitality to a new level. You leave feeling like you just spent time with a long lost friend or relative. If you plan on visiting the Amish country side this is the place to stay. Bert has direction to anywhere you want to go and Rich either knows or is related to everyone in the area. His stories about the history of the area are just great. We plan on spending more time back in this area because of the Hurst’s and their Hurst House Bed and Breakfast. Thanks Rich and Bert. Bob and Judy Henderson
There is a reason this is the #1 rated B&B in Lititz. John & Heidi are wonderful hosts & her breakfasts are delicious. Room is nice size & comfortable bed. Only thing I would change is to have a larger flat screen TV
Rich and Bert make you feel like family. They have made both of our anniversary stays very memorable. This last trip, August 2017, we got to experience a Russian baptism at their pond. It was fascinating! We would be happy to spend another weekend with them in the future. Thanks Rich and Bert.
It had been a very rough year for us and we just wanted to get away to relax and unwind for a few days. Well, we could not have picked a better place! Not only do the Hurst's have a magnificently beautiful, clean and comfortable home, the gorgeous view of the lake and the Lancaster County farmlands from our room was breathtaking! Rich and Bert were so helpful in letting us know where to for dinner when we got there, but you better believe we didn't miss the morning breakfast! Not only were they elegantly prepared, they were served by Rich and Bert themselves! This is one B&B that I will definitely be retuning to!!
We went to Lititz for a wedding taking place at the General Sutter Inn. That inn was booked so we searched for another bed and breakfast close by and found the Litz Inn. On the way home we reflected on how happy we were that the General Sutter Inn had been booked because of the amazing space we had at the Lititz House. We had two lovely rooms with a nice hall way in-between and our own bathroom. There was a sitting room outside of our wing and our children were welcome to play in the play room where they had darts, a pool table and trains. The owners were available for anything we needed or wanted. They are a gracious couple.
Location in the middle of the historic district of Lititz was perfect for walking to all the shops, restaurants and beautiful Lititz Springs Park for a leisurely weekend. Had the weather been nicer we would have enjoyed the beautiful garden patio. Breakfasts were delicious and John & Lynndell were welcoming and attentive hosts.
Heidi and John are the perfect hosts. We have been going to the Lititz House for 8 years. It is the perfect place to stay in Lititz Always a great experience. Heidi and John go out of their way to make your stay a great one.
Karen and Mil were excellent hosts and did everything possible to make my stay most comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and the rooms, gathering areas, decks, and exterior were beautiful and kept in perfect condition. Would go back in an instant, although bookings continue to get harder to get because of the high quality.
