Breakfast was lovely, and it was very close to lots of fun activities and areas. Highly recommend a visit here Our quick getaway 5 on January 08, We came to stay for a night in the crimson dove room just to have a break from reality and get away from where we live. We loved the place as soon as we walked in and it exceeded all of our expectations.
We had such an amazing time, loved our room, there's so much information for places to go and the food was great! We definitely recommend staying there! The room was spacious and everything we look for. The company was pleasant at the tasty breakfast.
We hope to make many more visits. Thank you Rebecca and Dave! Girls weekend 5 on November 19, This was my third time staying at the Smithton Inn and it was fabulous.

The room we stayed in was so comfortable, it was like you where back home. We will surely be back next year for sure. Very welcoming and hospitable, lovely Inn, charming hosts!
The hosts go out of their way to be accommodating. There is reading material in the Inn which tells the story of the settlement of Ephrata and the general area, which I was interested to read. The breakfast provided was delicious and plentiful, thoughtfully prepared. We enjoyed our stay and will return. Our home away from home 5 on April 01, We visit the Lancaster County area a couple of times a year for antique buying trips, and always stay at the Smithton.
The location is convenient, the rooms are spacious and clean, and Rebecca and Dave are gracious hosts. Every time we visit, there are new upgrades to the inn, which illustrate their passion for maintaining a welcoming and comfortable destination.
Want to sit by a lit fireplace in your room and surf the web? Want to enjoy a delicious breakfast? These breakfasts with locally sourced ingredients are FAR better than typical restaurant fare, and served in a warm and inviting dining room, rather than an impersonal chain restaurant cavern. There are several great dining options nearby, Amish attractions, craft brewers, and the Adamstown antique strip is a short drive away, as is the Ephrata Cloister, so there is plenty in the area to do.
If you want to venture a bit further afield, there are museums and beautiful countryside drives, and even more dining options, from casual to upscale. If you're still having trouble deciding, both Dave and Rebecca are very familiar with the area and can offer suggestions. Charming 5 on March 27, Very friendly atmosphere, clean and nicely appointed room with new rain shower. We will stay here again when we are in this area.
Rebecca was very accommodating for our dietary needs. It was a pleasure to stay here. Sandy and Bob Always a great visit 4. This was our first visit to the Inn in over 20 years.
The charm is still the same, but the Gallaghers make it awesome. Beds are super comfy.
It's nice to get away for the weekend. We will be back. Highly Recommended 5 on March 04, Professional, courteous, and friendly innkeepers and a very good breakfast with all of the extras.

Innkeeper is fabulous and the breakfasts are spectacular. Anniversary Weekend in Ephrata 4. Rebecca was a great hostess, and we enjoyed chatting with her following a delicious breakfast each morning the french toast was the best! The inn was very nicely decorated and quiet we could not hear any road noise from the cars driving byand there was plenty to do nearby.
We stayed in the Crimson Dove Suite, and we'd absolutely stay in there again! Will stay again when traveling through PA.
Be sure to make friends with Lucky Great Inn, Great Host 4. The room sage was great and the home has interesting period accents and a charming, gracious host.
Breakfasts to look forward to as well. What was planned as just an overnight stay turned out to be an amazing experience. If your in the area staying at this classic inn is a "must-do. My wife and I had a fabulous two night stay on Dec. The room was cozy, comfortable, and we both loved the fireplace! Both breakfasts were yummy and we especially enjoyed getting to know and chatting with Rebecca the innkeeper during breakfast after our second night.
We highly recommend this inn to anyone looking to get away for a night or two. We look forward to trying a different room on a future visit! Ben and Michelle Very impressed!! I reserved a room for my wife's birthday and, to my surprise, the room was upgraded for us!
We were pleasantly surprised! The breakfast was amazing and we will definitely be back!! Rhett and Noelle Butler Outstanding 3. We were revisiting the locale of our honeymoon. The stay at the Smithton was the centerpiece of the trip. The innkeeper was not only a consummate professional but a charming, intelligent woman who made us feel welcome and special.
The old building is well kept, clean, charming, and centrally located. The breakfast is more than anyone could expect and lovingly prepared by a hostess who loves to cook, too. My wife has been raving about the wonderful time we had to all her friends.
I'd go back in a heartbeat as long as I have the heartbeats to allow that. A Night in History 5 on November 02, We have stayed here for years and were always pleased to spend time in this historic inn. The new owners have refurbished the inn that had become a bit in disrepair over the years and it is lovely.
The owners of the inn are friendly and happy to talk about the history of the building. Our suite was sweet! We will definitely be back again!! Relaxed place, good food 5 on October 25, My extended family stayed at Smithton Inn for three days for my son's wedding.
We spent hours over excellent breakfasts in the comfortable dining room eating, laughing, remembering, without any pressure to hurry. The rooms were spacious and light, the bathrooms modern.
Car Show Weekend 3. The breakfasts were good We stayed here during the Hershey car show and it rained the entire time. The only negative comment would be the uncomfortable Queen size bed in our room. We have a King at home so it was a little cramped. Dave and Rebecca, the owners, provided a very comfortable and private space for our all-day meeting. Lunch was provided and the Chili recipe was requested by many who enjoyed it.
Our rooms were quiet, comfortable and had all the amenities expected by business travelers and many more that were an unexpected surprise. I can highly recommend Historic Smithton for small meetings, workshops or retreats. The rooms, common areas, breakfasts and hosts including dog "Lucky" together with the convenient Lancaster Co location make it truly exceptional.
Nicely located; very friendly and helpful staff 3. I grew up in the area and have driven by Historic Smithton Inn countless times in the past paying no attention whatsoever to it. I have moved away but my parents remain locally and I visit times per year always staying in local hotels all of which lack the ambiance and charm of Smithton Inn not to mention the absolutely wonderful breakfasts!
Rebecca and her staff are very friendly and knowledgeable and quite willing to help in any way possible. The prices when I stayed were actually lower than any of the hotels in the area, which were all completely booked full forcing me to find other lodgings. I am so glad this happened as I will probably never stay in a hotel again while visiting my parents I unhesitatingly recommend a stay at Historic Smithton Inn. A couple of days away 4. Rebecca and David are wonderful hosts. Breakfast was wonderful and we liked having a friendly dog to pet.
Our room was big and comfortable. We would highly recommend this inn. Expectations were high and generally met. The Smithton Inn is a most welcoming place and the philosophy of the staff is evidently to be extra helpful at all times. We also found that other guests tend to follow suit with advice on places to see and visit which worked well for us as first time visitors to the area.
Location is more 'edge of town' than central but we walked to the Old Lincoln Inn for dinner which was great and there are plenty of other choices a short drive away. Food was terrific, grounds and setting are very nice, Rebecca was very hospitable and quite engaging. We would encourage anyone to stay there. The owner, Rebecca, was very friendly and helpful and the room was clean, comfortable and spacious. We would not hesitate to stay there again.
We found ourselves in Ephrata as a last minute decision. We were going to stay at a Hampton Inn but they were full so they referred us to the Smithton Inn. We stayed in the red room. The bed was so comfy and the room was spacious and very charming. Rebecca and David were nice and hospitable, it was like going home to visit family. Rebecca told us that she likes to cook, and the proof was in her cooking, the best breakfast EVER!!!!!!!!
We enjoyed the Smithton Inn so much we have planed to return in September for our birthdays. I had seen the inn before on prior visits to the area, but staying there was such a wonderful experience. Make sure that you come hungry to breakfast! The rooms are adorably decorated and very traditional to the area!
Enjoy your stay, and the innkeepers can help you find any activities to do in the area! Smithton Pefect 5 on July 13, Great stay Breakfast was very special and home made. Rebecca and David were wonderful. Home is very meticulously furnished and cared for, loved the garden. Historic yet convenient 4. We had very relaxing time in this historic yet beautifully restored and conveniently located inn. All rooms seem to have colored theme and ours was the "Red Room".
The inn itself had a personal feeling of being in a neighbor's home with all the modern necessities and was immaculately clean. Breakfasts were well proportioned and high-level. The innkeeper and her colleague were both very friendly and knowledgeable about the surrounding areas.
They even setup a separate bed for my son sensibly during our absence.
The location of the inn was an added plus. It's near the main road leading to both the country side and the downtown Lititz and Lancaster. I would repeat and recommend it to others without hesitation. Best and most romantic Inn 4. Rooms are clean, spacious and well equipped. Blue and chocolate room face the street so you might find red room more quiet. Historic Inn with Comfort and Charm 4. We would happily stay there again.
It has the interest and character of an inn that is years old, but our room The Yellow Room had amenities we expect more from a hotel, such as a flat panel TV and a small fridge.
Each room has a working fireplace with an engineered log provided each day. One cool evening we appreciated watching the fire as we sipped our wine. The bed was comfortable and the breakfasts delicious, enhanced with plenty of good conversation.
Rebecca was a pleasant host who was readily available to provide guidance about the area.
A few things that were fine with us, but some of you might want to know: The Inn is on a fairly busy street small town busyresulting in some traffic and noise. There are good restaurants within easy driving distance, but little within walking distance. They have a well-behaved dog, which for us was a bonus.
Cozy, Clean and Cute 4. Very personable and comfortable place. The English in Ephrata 4. Great value, overwhelming breakfast and perfect base for travelling around Dutch county. Built in at an important crossroad in Pennsylvania, it has greeted travelers for years. The plain Amish-style decor in our yellow room was beautiful.
Amenities included with the room were locally made treats. Such comfortable beds with microfiber sheets, too.
Makes one want to stay in bed, but don't. A delicious breakfast awaitsvery, very good breakfast! Try sitting on the front porch or in one of the various areas of the backyard or in the cozy parlorso relaxing.
The innkeepers were so nice and helpful, and the inn itself was very clean, comfortable, and beautiful! And the breakfasts were soooooo good!
Wonderful,cosy, historic inn 5 on April 23, Stayed in the red room. Very nice and cosywith a fire in the fireplace in our room.

Rebecca is so friendly and knowledgeable of the area, we felt instantly at home and armed with plenty of options for spending our weekend out and about. Plus, her breakfast menu was fantastic! All around, this was a relaxing and fun place to stay, with comfortable rooms and a warm, welcoming staff.
We were there on May We checked in with Rebecca who was absolutely sweet as can be. She had walked us to our room. The showers get cold quick but you got to realize, this house is that's years old. I've had someone just take a pic of me with out asking which that was not cool. Well, we went to the kitchen kettle village.
They have tours that has certain length of time, depends on what you want. They clean our rooms so little tip is really nice. It's a way of saying "Thank you for keeping my room clean".
A great escape from the Winter of ! Coordinating, researching, designing, and implementing these integration projects requires several skilled hands. The idea was to make them cognizant of system thinking.
You need to take biomed from a device mentality to a system mentality. In one instance, communication between wireless infusion pumps and the EHR was interrupted.
Upon investigation, he discovered that the number of devices operating concurrently was overwhelming the system. He brought this information to the manufacturer, who opened more wireless channels to accommodate the workload, thus solving the problem. He acknowledges the importance of integration, but points out that when information technology brings in new IS equipment and attaches it to existing machines, biomed technicians often find the project rollout obtrusive.
Now we engage [the biomed techs], but do not expect them to do heavy lifting. We do what needs to be done. She consults with the technical team to figure out which devices to connect and what values to capture. Her clinical experience enables her to determine what information to include in the EHR.
Her technological training allows her to assist in configuring and testing devices. In some cases, the device itself presents a roadblock to integration, according to Howard. A majority of devices are not wireless and must be connected to a special plug-in wall adapter. Some devices are not configured at all for connectivity with the EHR, so project requests have to be denied. While the biomed techs and nursing lend important medical perspective and knowledge to these integration projects, technological know-how is also a vital component.
In addition to Keller, who brings a strong networking background to the group, technical and clinical applications specialists serve behind the scenes to extrapolate the data to make sure it is compatible with the EHR. Angie Jowanowitch, senior systems data analyst, is in charge of the iBus, an application that transports discrete physiologic data and infusion data from medical devices into the EHR or consuming application for viewing or verification by a clinician.
When she started working at WellSpan 6 years ago, Jowanowitch was thrust into the integration projects, a dramatic switch from her previous positions. As part of the IS team, she sits in on the monthly meetings and becomes involved in projects from their inception.
But our team was solidified with this project. We realized that no one can work alone. The clinical staff does not have to spend so much time calculating and entering data. Keller notes that support from WellSpan leadership makes such opportunities possible.
Once the device passes all connectivity tests, we roll it out and educate staff. We make sure everyone knows how to use the new connectivity feature of the device. Soffer, Keller, and Lehman have written step-by-step instruction manuals for the biomed and technical staff in PDF format, explaining how to set up the device and get onto the network.
There are also special documents that provide information for IP addresses and port settings. These manuals assist biomed technicians who might be on call when a problem arises. Portions of the documents are shared with the IS help desk manager to create flow charts for improved help desk support.
Milesplit Illinois Week In Review: April ,
The IT educational team offers computer-based training as well as a written manual. Howard does hands-on training in various clinical departments within the hospital. The nurses already know how to use the equipment. The learning curve is small compared to the switch from paper to computer. WellSpan has been computerized since These mini-education information sessions help staff become oriented to the devices.
