Tom and Wanda provide the absolute best B&B experience for your money. The accommodations are inviting, clean and ultra-comfortable. The staff is polite and eagerly helpful...but they won't hover either! The breakfast made by Tyler is fresh and delectable! Most ingredients coming straight from the Inn's garden. Adamstown offers plenty to do...antiques, flea markets, PA Faire Grounds, close to Reading...

My wife and I just left our amazing 2 night stay. The owners, manager Taylor and the rest of the staff provided very high quality service and the Inn is so so cute! Most special were the 8:30 am breakfasts - quality and service of a 5 star hotel. Also, very close/accessible to the Adamstown antique shops.
