After operating the very successful After Eight Bed & Breakfast in Paradise, PA until November 2005 Toni & Lorin Wortel together with their two children Marc and Miranda started the restoration of the historic and upscale Silverstone Inn & Suites. After completion in January of 2007, we opened up our newly renovated family mansion to visitors of our tourism Paradise: The PA Dutch Amish area.


In May 2013 daughter Miranda Wortel and Nick Wagner joined as fulltime innkeepers after graduating in Hospitality Management giving Toni & Lorin a few days a week off.
