The Australian Walkabout Inn B&B is elegant yet rustic, with all of the charm of Pennsylvania's Amish culture at your fingertips. Lynn and Bob Griffin, who host the Inn, are friendly and obviously on top of things - the place is invitingly clean and the hospitality is great! Bob obviously takes preparing breakfast seriously, as he introduces each course of... More

I'm not sure how many times we have spent at this delightful, relaxing, beautiful inn, but we are never disappointed. Whether it's a girls get away, a birthday celebration or even a much needed escape, this place consistently outdoes itself every time. Rooms are spotless, updated and extravagantly comfortable. Lynn makes you feel like a guest in her home, not... More

We had a great time in Lancaster. WE enjoyed visiting with Lynn and the food she prepared for breakfast was wonderful. We stayed in the bungalow out back. Perfect for the two of us. We will definitely consider staying here again if we make it back to Lancaster.

The House and Room very nice and inviting, and with the friendly Hostess Lynn providing the attention you would expect. She made us feel more than welcome almost like a family member . The breakfast was the reason we use B n B 's you just do not get the quality we had at any of the big Chain Hotels.... More

Our stay at the Australian Walkabout Inn began when we met our kind and accommodating host, Lynn. She graciously showed us the available rooms (all of which were nice) and allowed us to choose the one we wanted; even though we had previously booked one. The rooms were very clean, and nicely decorated. She also made a wonderful breakfast the... More

Our hosts couldn't have been more helpful and welcoming since this was our first try at staying at a bed and breakfast. Wonderful experience overall, great location for launching on a series of day trips, plenty of privacy. Socializing with the other clientele over each delightful and creative breakfast was an added bonus to our stay. They have set a... More

This Inn is too perfect for words. Hope to use it again. It is convenient to travel and inn keepers give great instructions and have maps too. Air conditioning worked perfectly and ample parking. Spring water at checkin desk.

My husband and I had a wonderful visit at this beautiful, quaint inn. We were pleasantly surprised, as we were unfamiliar with the area. Lynn & Bob were so welcoming and made our stay so pleasant. The breakfast was delicious especially the muffins. If ever we travel through again, we will definitely stay here again.

Due to my work I have traveled world wide. Although Nothing compares to the peacefulness, welcome, kindness and hospitality we felt together with my son and a childhood friend of his, right from the moment we spontaneously walked in The Australian Walkabout Inn Bed & Breakfast in Lancaster. Yes! The name says it all! It was getting dark, and we... More

My husband and I stayed here for our 31st anniversary. From the minute you walk in the door you are made to feel very comfortable and welcome. The B& B is charming and very centrally located. Lynn was very helpful with recommendations of places to visit and Bob was great at helping us find a wonderful golfcourse on a Sunday... More
