My wife and I have experienced a new standard in B&Bs having stayed at the incomparable Lovelace Manor in Lancaster on March 11 & 12. Whatever praise we can offer for the beautifully decorated and comfortable mansion we could increase by many factors for the super-hospitable hosts, Lark and Michael. When we arrived we were given a comprehensive tour of... More

My husband and I recently stayed at Lovelace and it was wonderful. The room (Athea) although was there smallest is actually quiet large. The bed was comfortable and they provided everything you could need. The breakfast was delicious. I am Gluten Intolerant and Lark & Michael had muffins that were gluten free for me and she also makes her own... More

My wife and I have sort of an annual tradition of a February overnight at a Lancaster B&B. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Lovelace Manor. As most of the reviews attest, Michael and Lark made us feel at home and have done a great job restoring their beautiful Inn. Breakfast was especially good, as were the lemon cookies that... More

Lark and Michael promised to look it up for me, but I am sure we have stayed more than a dozen times over the past 13 years! My favorite room is the Rose, but on this busy Valentine/President's weekend, we stayed in the Ellinda. The Ellinda is beautifully decorated, has the most amazingly comfortable bed, luxury sheets, a huge shower,... More

Being in hospitality I can be very critical, however I cannot fault the wonderful hospitality of the Lovelace manor hosts, Michael and Lark. Coming from Australia we wanted a central location to get out and see the sights. The location was perfect and the information on the surrounding districts was very helpful. The manor itself is more than what we... More

This B&B was just what we were looking for! Lark and Michael were wonderful hosts and very informative regarding things to see in area and restaurants they recommend. Their inn is decorated beautifully for the holidays...breakfasts were excellent and rooms were very clean. All their special touches made this a very nice getaway!

Both of the breakfasts we had were delicious. There is a walking trail about 1/2 mile away which we ran the entire 3 mile loope. Lark provided directions... More

We have been visiting Lovelace for 11 years. The Lancaster experience simply would not be the same without Lovelace. Every experience is unique. The hosts are truly expert in the local area, and everything to do in the Lancaster area. Lark and Michael provide comprehensive information on the Amish culture, and for those interested, superior guidance and access to the... More
