A Charming & Modern Bed and Breakfast in Lancaster County

Welcome to the Historic Smithton Inn, where you can bask in the historic charm of our 18th Century colonial stone Lancaster B&B, while still enjoying modern service, comforts and amenities.

Great Location:

Located in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch Country, our Lancaster bed and breakfast in Ephrata, PA is ideally situated to explore the multitude of attractions that Lancaster County has to offer. At the Smithton, we offer the amenities you expect from a hotel, like spacious rooms, flat-screen TVs, Wi-Fi, and iPod docking stations; then, we exceed expectations by providing working fireplaces, DVD players, mini-fridges, hand-sewn quilts, and complimentary snacks and bottled water in each guest room. You’ll love sitting on our front porch rockers and watching the buggies pass by or enjoying an evening fire on the back patio.

Memorable Service:

We are happy to help you plan the perfect Lancaster County vacation to suit you!  We can provide you with a map to covered bridges or the best driving routes to see Amish farms and culture. We also have plenty of suggestions for museums, theaters, festivals, wine tours, farmers markets, historic sites, concerts, amusements, nature hikes, and more! There is never a shortage of attractions near our Lancaster County bed and breakfast. We guarantee that you’ll run out of gas before we run out of things for you to do!

Delicious Breakfasts:

Our guests rave about our breakfasts, so be sure to arrive with an appetite for delicious homemade cuisine! You’ll wake up to the aroma of freshly baked bread or muffins. Breakfast is served at your convenience, between 8:00 and 10:00 am, or earlier by prior arrangement. We’ll start you off with fresh fruit, muffins, assorted yogurt, homemade granola & homemade bread, and then we’ll bring out your plated meal, which alternates between sweet and savory dishes (eggs made-to-order available as an alternative to our planned meal; special dietary requests can be accommodated with advance notice).

If you’re looking for special touches or activities during your stay, we can help you out there too. We can arrange an in-room couple’s massage or make reservations for you at one of our wonderful local restaurants. We also have packages (or you can create your own) to help you celebrate special occasions.


We are located in northeastern Lancaster County, in the historic borough of Ephrata, just minutes from the Ephrata Cloister and the Green Dragon Farmers Market. Unlike other bed and breakfasts in Lancaster, PA, we are a close drive to Lititz, Hershey, Lancaster, Bird-In-Hand, and Intercourse, and just 1.5 hours from Philadelphia, Valley Forge, and Gettysburg. Whether you’re looking for a romantic getaway or an active vacation full of sightseeing and attractions, the Smithton Inn will be a welcoming oasis from everyday life, one that you’ll want to visit again and again.

“This B&B is where historic meets hip! Our room was tastefully accented with Pennsylvania Dutch décor, was comfortable and immaculate as all get-out, and the breakfast was delicious. We’ll definitely be back!”
