We had a wonderful visit and will definitely stay here next time. The B & B was conveniently located right outside of Lancaster. It was centrally located to all tourist attractions minus the noise and busy highways. Lynne, the inn keeper, was very helpful in suggesting things to do. The room was gorgeous and had plenty of space. The breakfast... More

Spent a night in Lancaster while visiting The Sight & Sound showing of JOSEPH. Had planned to stay at a Hampton INN but decided on a B&B much closer to the venue. It was a perfect choice. We were met with a warm greeting at the desk. Given a large air conditioned two room suite, access to house and we... More

My husband and I stayed 2 days for our 35th wedding anniversary and loved The Walkabout and its owners. The breakfasts were fabulous as Lynn is a great cook. We felt relaxed and totally at home. Highly recommend staying there and we will be returning.

We only had one night to stay at this B&B and left wishing we had more. We stayed in a suite that came with a hot tub. Everything was clean and had the little touches of home that you would expect from a B&B. We woke up early and were able to sip coffee on the porch swing, enjoying the... More

What a lovely place! It is set in the stunning town of Lancaster and is surrounded by farmland, very peaceful! They are very accommodating, in the fridge is not only cold soda and water but beer and wine as well, along with extremely good chocolate chip cookies (yum). We were in the McLaren Vale Suite, perfect! Alot of B&Bs are... More

I arrived after a 5 hour drive and was greeted warmly by Lynne and Bob, the owners, who were sitting on the porch. Lynne showed me to my room and explained its features and identified where I could find bottled water, beer, and wine in the fridges. These beverages are available to guests at no extra charge; you just take... More

Did you ever stop to realize that your mom (or that special relative) seemed to make all things work and make all things comfortable, available, and all-of-the-time? Well that's what this place is kinda-sorta. Lynne is younger than your mom (thank goodness - we can all visit for a bunch more years) and she knows a heck of a lot... More

It was our pleasure to host you and your family and we hope you'll return again soon. So glad the restaurant suggestion fit the bill so well (and within a short walk from the Fulton). Thank you for your kind words (and comment that I'm not as old as your mom;)) you have us blushing! More

As frequent visitors to Lancaster and the great shows at American Music Theater, we usually book a room at one of the numerous local hotels nearby. This time, however, we wanted a different experience - and this B & B, just a 10 minute drive from the theater & all the attractions along Rte. 30, was a wonderful experience. Our... More

Everything was amazing. This is a must see and visit. Relaxing gardens, secluded courtyard, parlor with games, piano, pastries, and wine. We stayed in the cottage which featured its own private hot tub. Breakfast was from scratch goodness! Apple bread, fresh fruit, and yummy sour cream pancakes. If you want to feel pampered and in your own little piece of... More

Be prepared to feel at home and just relax. Lynn is very accommodating and a great hostess. Help yourself to a glass of wine, a bottle of water or a cup of coffee and hang out in the comfy livingroom or on the porch. Loved the swing on the porch overlooking the lovely garden. Our room had everything we needed... More
