I travel a lot and stay in many different kinds of lodgings. Because I have to be in and out at odd times to photograph sites nearby, sometimes a chain motel is just easier. But this place was an exception - free easy parking, easy in and out, breakfast when I could have it (extra early 6:30), and a feeling that I was at home. Allyson was great and I'd definitely stay here again. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars across the board is the front room (2) is very noisy because Pottsville drivers don't seem to use mufflers. I'm very sensitive and do travel with a white noise machine; this time I brought two machines because of other reviews about Room 2. Slept pretty well but could hear cars occasionally, and was conscious of streetlight outside. The room itself was great, spacious, all the amenities you could want, tiny but well-designed private bathroom. If you are one of those sleep-through-anything people you'll be fine. The breakfast omelette was delicious and fortified me for the work ahead. Thank you Allyson.
My husband and I were looking for a short getaway, and had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before. We were drawn to this particular one because of the reviews from other guests reviews. We were not to be disappointed. In fact the reviews far underestimated the wonderful experience staying here. We stayed on the third floor, which was so spacious and charming. It was truly a peaceful getaway, and there was nothing lacking in the hospitality extended. I promise you, she has thought of everything to make your stay fun, and enjoyable..including the home made cookies. Even from advantage of the Yuengling brewery tour and the short drive to Hawk Mtn and Cabela's. Definitely worth another visit!
My fiance and I loved this little gem! Allyson was lovely and thoughtful. The rooms were all exceptionally clean and adorable. We had our privacy and the atmosphere was charming. Will definitely be back again!
I planned this surprise for my wife. We have always wanted to stay at a Bed & Breakfast but never got around to doing it until now. To put it simply, we will be back. The Maid's Quarters is an awesome place to stay. Allyson is Great and the cookies are Awesome! My wife and I had such a relaxing stay. Loved it and would definitely return.
My husband and I have never stayed or considered staying a bed and breakfast until our recent trip to Pottsville. Now we realize we have been missing out. The rooms were everything and more than what we would expect from a hotel for a better cost! The breakfast was amazing and the little touches she had around the B&B made it all the more unique and special. From the fresh baked cookies in the room to the decanter of wine with small glasses in the lobby for guests to enjoy. If we are in the area again we will definitely come back!
We try to stay at Allyson's Maid's Quarters Bed & Breakfast property whenever we are in Pottsville visiting relatives and friends or doing genealogical research at the library. We try to stay in the room on the top floor which has a small kitchen, sitting room, bathroom and bedroom. The claw foot tub is amazing. We have also stayed in the two rooms on the second floor and they are beautiful also. You share a bathroom, but that is no problem since you'll probably only have two other people staying on that floor at a time. Allyson is one great chef. Her breakfasts are absolutely amazing with all fresh foods. Eggs from a local farmer, fruits and vegetables in season from the area, and your choice of fresh juices, coffee and tea. Allyson has a wonderful imagination and a great palate so anything she cooks tastes great and works on all levels.We particularly enjoy the way the rooms are decorated with many antiques on display. Oh, and lest you think this is a totally old-fashioned property, there is wi-fi throughout, cable TV, and the water pressure is great with plenty of hot water. Try this property, you'll like it.
My husband and I are always very happy when we are able to stay at Allyson's B&B, the Maid's Quarters when we visit relatives in Pottsville. Don't let the old fashioned look fool you, although this is one of the reasons we stay here. There is wi-fi throughout the property, and satellite television if you want it. Allyson is one of the best, I'm going to use the word "chef's" here, that we have encountered in our many stays at B&B's. The rooms are impeccable, with comfortable beds and a very cozy feel. We have stayed in each of the rooms and if we can, we will reserve the room on the top floor, which is self-contained with two sitting rooms, a small kitchenette and a bedroom with air conditioning units throughout, also ceiling fans. The other two rooms are very comfortable and share a bathroom with a shower, but that is really no problem, considering most of the time you would only be sharing it with two other people. There is plenty of hot water and water pressure throughout the property is very good considering it's age. There are staircases to navigate to each floor, but we are older and we don't have any problems. In addition, Allyson is ready to assist anyone who needs help. Allyson has also been able to strike a deal with the company which owns the parking lots across the street, so you have close, secure parking for your car. As I said above, Allyson is a chef and her choices for your breakfast are healthy, taste great, and varied. You'll have fresh eggs, fresh fruit in season, your choice of beverage (juice, tea, milk, or coffee), perhaps a choice of waffles or pancakes and many other delicious items. Allyson is able to obtain all her foodstuffs from local growers and the eggs are from a farmer in the area (we're talking fresh here). If you're looking for a property with an old look, but up to the minute amenities, this is the one.
This B & B was perfect. The atmosphere, cleanliness, food and of course Alison herself. She is so warm and inviting. She sat and talked to me during breakfast. I will always stay there when I got to Pottsville (providing I can get a room)
This is a beautiful charming B&B. From the Décor to the hostess, it is great. Allyson sat and talked to me while I had breakfast. It's so clean and comfortable. I never thought I would like a B&B, but this one is exceptional. I stayed at another once, but there is no comparison. Allyson makes you feel like her friend, someone you have known for a long time. She really makes you feel welcome
My husband and I stayed at The Maid's Quarters over New Year's Eve. It was a return visit for me, and I was just as impressed as the last time. Alyson is the consummate hostess, and we lacked for nothing. The Maid's Quarters has become our favorite place to stay while visiting relatives in the area. We'll be returning!
I am so glad we stayed at this B&B for two lovely days-it was very relaxing and Allyson is very accommodating to any needs you have and the rooms are stocked with everything you could need! Highlights of the stay was the lovely tea selection at breakfast, visiting the Yuengling Factory which was just a quick walk from The Maid's Quarters and the Wooden Keg (an Irish pub, also walking distance) where we had dinner both nights. Would highly recommend this sweet B&B and will most likely be back again!
From the warm welcome to the friendly goodbye, Allyson was a wonderful hostess. Her home was inviting and peaceful with lovely decor and special touches in every corner. Our third floor suite was a true retreat, including tea, coffee and snacks that were an unexpected surprise. If you are in Pottsville, stay at the Maid's Quarters. You won't regret it.
My partner and I had a very enjoyable overnight in Pottsville and The Maid's Quarters B&B. It was exactly as described in previous reviews - clean and welcoming with a great breakfast. We stayed in Room 2 which faced the street. Unfortunately, the constant noise of trucks and cars breaking for a street light outside our window was hard for us to get use to. I would try to book the back room or top floor if we stay again.
The B&B was in town close to all of the attractions. Allyson gave us some good dining tips.I think I wore the Keurig coffee maker out. It was nice to have it available anytime I wanted my coffee.
I traveled to Pottsville for a wedding and the hotel was sold out at the time. I'm so glad it was! Maid's Quarters was a delight and Allyson was very accommodating and kind. The house is adorable and the rooms were very comfortable and clean. Breakfast the next morning was delicious. I highly recommend this B&B.
Delightful stay.alison is a consumant hostess .Our room was delightful very comfortable and every detail thought of..Alison even let me make a green smoothie in her great kitchen! We had a great sleep following our 28 hr journey .
The Maid's quarter is a beautiful b&b. Beds were good,Food delicious, we had the upstairs back bedroom with sitting room very nice. So glad we stayed. If ever back in the area again we would definitely stay again.
The Maid's Quarters is wonderful! Allyson takes very good care of her beautiful home. Our rooms were very clean and very comfortable. Allyson is an outstanding hostess. We are still talking about the delicious breakfasts, and the yummy cookies she put in our rooms. We highly recommend The Maid's Quarters to anyone traveling in the Pottsville, PA area. Or to travel there just for The Maid's Quarters if you love Bed & Breakfasts. We have been to many B & B's, but The Maid's Quarters is our favorite so far. Awesome!
I've stayed at numerous B & B's and Allyson is doing it right. Do not hesitate to book a room. Although part of me doesn't want to share this gem as I don't want to find no vacancy when I return to pottsville pa !
