Established in 1989.
The Bermans purchased the Adamstown Inn in 1988. After seven months of extensive remodeling and renovating, the Adamstown Inn opened for business in 1989.
In response to an overwhelming request for additional guest rooms, the Berman's purchased a second property in Adamstown - the Amethyst Inn. This structure dates from 1830's with the most recent additions during the 1870's. Tom and Wanda are painstakingly restoring both the interior and exterior. They have chosen to clad the exterior of the Amethyst Inn in seven colors creating their second Victorian Painted Lady.
Architectural elements including gingerbread, wooden quoins (corner blocks), medallions, and detail features are highlighted in amethyst, gold, lavender, and forest green with a magnificent nine foot high intricately carved front door.

I gotta say, I really have no idea if I stayed in the actual Adamstown Inn or just one of their offshoots. Regardless, they're all owned by the same person and located really close together on Main Street in Adamstown. My family and I rented the big house, which I believe is the Adamstown Inn (5 bedrooms, 3 floors) and the smaller green house (Dragonfly cottage).Color me impressed! I loved that they were each house was decorated with cute and funky antiques that seemed to feel right given the setting (large house vs. small cottage). And the landscaping of each yard was nothing short of phenomenal! The owners seemed nice (though my cousin dealt with them a lot more than I did) and there is a good little local bar just around the corner from the houses, what more could you ask for? If you're visiting in the summer, be sure to ask about passes to the Adamstown pool. We were given 10 free passes as part of our stay, but we had to ask for them. If you're visiting for a family reunion, like I was, get the big house--it's perfect for large parties. For a quite, romantic getaway (in Amish country, which, let's face it, seems a little odd) or an antiquing adventure (Adamstown is known for it's antiques and hats) choose one of the smaller cottages (dragonfly, firefly). My only complaint is that the kitchen wasn't outfitted very well. But in my experience, that's sorta par for the course when renting cabins/houses/cottages. There are lots of bats in the backyard at dusk and though they seemed to want to dive bomb us as we sat on the patio, they were harmless.

My boyfriend and I were beyond mentally fried and over the city. We decided to get out into the country a little bit, and do something we had never done before - stay at a B&B.
I found the Adamstown Inn online, and it was reasonably priced, the photos didn't look like Great Aunt Gertrude's parlor, and every room had an en-suite fireplace (my one stipulation).
We stayed 2 nights in the Topaz room at the Amethyst Inn. It was amazing. The Amethyst Inn is a big, old (but beautifully maintained) Victorian home, converted into the Inn. Our room was equal parts Victoriana (joie de vie wallpaper and a very ornate cast iron fireplace) and Country - beautiful antique oak furniture.
The queen sized featherbed was luxurious and we slept like babies. The bathroom was updated, immaculate and the jacuzzi was amazing.
Breakfast was to die for. Four courses each morning of fantastic, unique home cooked goodness. Everything was so fresh and amazing. Their coffee was great (and endless) as well!
The staff was wonderful and warm, but not intrusive. They were incredibly thoughtful. Every day there was a small gift waiting for us on the bed, and when we left they gave us snacks for the road! It snowed overnight the 2nd night, and they even cleaned our car off for us before we woke up.
This place is first rate, gourmet, beautifully decorated and it is a wonderful respite away from Philadelphia. We, much like The Terminator, will be back.
