This Lancaster County B&B dates back to 1763 and is close to museums, theaters, Amish farms and restaurants. Five spacious queen guestrooms, two romantic king suites and a private house are all equipped with pillow-top beds, flat-screen TVs, working fireplaces, and spa-quality towels and robes. Some have jetted tubs.
MAKE A DAY OF IT: Ephrata is home to the expansive outdoor Green Dragon Market (open Fridays only) and Ephrata Cloister, an early colonial religious community that’s now a state museum site. The area is also a great place for microbrew afficionados. So you can top off your treasure hunt and history lesson with an adult beverage or two.
AUGUST RATES: $107–$247.
