This was our second stay and was just as wonderful as the first. The house is absolutely charming and well kept. The gardens create a great space to wander and relax. Even with modern amenities, this amazing house has all the charm that she has grown in the many years of its existence. The Inn Keepers Keith and Brad are...

Loved our room (the Hawthorne suite) and the wonderful breakfast. Brad and Keith could not be nicer nor more helpful! We loved restaurant recommendations, the history of the area, and some time just to relax in a really lovely and well kept home! I would have liked to stay longer and chat with some of the other guests, as they...

We were there in February 2017 and were astounded by our visit with Keith and Brad. I felt more like a long lost relative than a guest. The welcoming was genuine and Keith was there to help haul our one night stay belongings even though none was required. A very nice port was there for whoever had a thirst along...

My wife and I spent six days at the Lancaster whilst on holiday from the UK.

Comfortable, spotless, friendly, and delicious are just some of the words that describe our stay at the Lancaster Bed and Breakfast. Brad and Keith made us feel so welcome and gave very helpful tips on downtown Lancaster, restaurants, and seeing the sights in the Amish countryside. We initially planned on a one-night stay, but extended our visit for an extra...

For a last minute weekend getaway with my wife we decided to stay at the Lancaster after reading many positive reviews and we were not disappointed in any way. Ideally located at the edge of Lancaster city, it is close to downtown and one can easily go to sights in the countryside. The B&B is quaint and charming, nicely decorated...

Other reviews will be more helpful and detailed if you are interested in what the house, rooms, and meals are like. All I can say is this, Brad and Keith are the tops, so much so that we have made it a yearly tradition (3 years running!) to stay for a weekend. These guys are just SO hospitable. They not...
