I stayed in the purple room at the Smithton Inn. Huge room with beautiful decor--amish quilts, fireplace and sitting area, big comfy bed, work desk with wireless internet and an enormous bathroom with a two person jacuzzi. What a great historic inn! The new owners are doing a wonderful job sprucing up the place. All the bedding and linens are new and sumptuous. I slept like a baby.
The breakfasts are delicious. In addition to homemade muesli and yogurt, there was a hot breakfast casserole (baked french toast with local peaches--yum!) and rich, strong coffee.
The owners have made it their business to be very well informed about the local area and are a great resource. The Inn would be a nice refuge for the business traveler as well as a fun spot for the vacationer.
Unique Quality: Dating from the 1700s, the inn has beautiful stone, beams and structural elements. Every bedroom has a fireplace. Bedrooms are spacious. Decor includes Amish handcrafts from the area.
