We loved our stay here. I'd give 41/2 stars if they let me. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because they serve breakfast at 9am. My wife and I are early risers and having to wait until 9 for breakfast was a minor inconvenience. Other than that everything was perfect.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Beautiful setting. Accommodations, breakfast, and hospitality were first rate! Loved the soaking tub. The bed in our suite was a bit high and the innkeeper was very accommodating, providing us with a step stool. Would definitely return.

We celebrated my mother's 50th birthday with a full b&b rental. Lynne was so accommodating. She helped me plan every detail....recommending spas and bakeries. She even went to the trouble of picking up the cake I had ordered. Our rooms were fabulous and well stocked and the breakfasts were filling and fantastic. She was very accommodating of our food allergies....

We celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary by staying at the Australian Walkabout Inn Bed & Breakfast. Our room was comfortable and cozy. Lynne & Bob made us feel at home and we had a relaxing time. The breakfast each morning was great and very tasty. Would definitely return and also recommend to our family and friends. Jarvis & Cathy Hawley...

Nothing but fun from the first moment we entered the inn until the morning we left. Show-stopper breakfasts, good talk at the table. There was no charge for beverages. And we especially enjoyed the access to Amish culture this location provided. (We passed a man driving an 8-horse team to plow his field! Shades of the past.)

I can't say enough about the Australian Walkabout Inn. The innkeepers, Bob & Lynne, are wonderful, gracious hosts. The Inn is beautifully decorated, the rooms are well appointed, very comfortable bed, immaculately clean! Breakfast was a banquet fit for a king & queen. We are anxious to come back when we can stay longer and see more of the surrounding...

My experience at this Bed and Breakfast was really great. The hosts were very gracious and Lynne's breakfasts were delicious. She gives much attention to detail and we did not lack for anything during our stay. The bed linens were "yummy". The location is central to everywhere we wanted to visit in the Amish countryside, and their recommendations for dining...

Although we travel a lot, this was our stay at a Bed & Breakfast and we LOVED it. Lynne (our Hostess) treated us like she had known us our entire lives. The suite we selected had sitting room, bedroom with a queen size bed and private bathroom. We were upgraded to the next room which had two person whirlpool tub....

Once again this year we took over the inn for a scrapbooking/craft weekend. This is a weekend that we look forward to all year. Lynne is just so amazing and makes sure that we have everything we need. Her breakfasts are fantabulous and the special snacks she makes for us are always a treat. Her sticky buns are out of...

We stayed one night in the Barossa Suite. The bed was to die for! It was a cozy four-poster canopy bed with a heated mattress and 600 thread count sheets was a true delight! Jacuzzi was nice, inn keepers were super friendly, and Lynne's breakfast was great. Would highly recommend!
