The Story of The Maid’s Quarters Bed, Breakfast and Tearoom
Hello! I am Allyson, owner of The Maid’s Quarters Bed, Breakfast and Tearoom.
I am a Pennsylvania native, originally from Allentown, PA who grew up in the kitchen with my mom and Grammy. Since the age of 18, I have wanted to own a bed and breakfast. My journey began in 2007 when I took my college internship at a B&B in Bethlehem. Following that, I worked for two different B&B’s until 2010. In the beginning of 2011, I had the opportunity to move to Pottsville, PA and open The Maid’s Quarters where I am beginning my 13th year in April 2023.
The Maid’s Quarters has grown from a 2 room B&B to a 4 room B&B with an on-site tearoom. We have hosted guests from 46 of the 50 states and 22 different countries. The tearoom which started out as a brunch spot once a month has developed into a fun place where a lot of regulars come to enjoy our monthy brunches, themed high teas, and saturday breakfasts as well as a gathering place for private events.
Allyson is always baking and guests can enjoy an assortment of scones and sometimes cookies in the tearoom during their stay. Scones can also be purchases at two locations in the area: Queen Bee Boutique and Sughr & Company (links below).
