Even thought we only stayed overnight it was worthy every penny. The inn keepers were down to earth and very friendly. The breakfast was excellent and the room was very nice. Planning are next get away soon.

Enjoyed our Valentines weekend at the Australian Walkabout. We had the McLaren room which was cozy and clean. We loved the hot tub and the fireplace...especially since the weather was below zero both nights. We have been going to Lancaster over 30 years and have stayed in several B&B's. This was our first stay here and loved the location, easy... More

My wife and I stayed at the Australian Walkabout Inn back in September 2014 (I'm a procrastinator). We arrived late at night after everyone was asleep but Lynne & Bob accommodated our late arrival without any problems. We stayed in the McLaren Vale Suite and had our own private jacuzzi! Amazing bed sheets by the way. We're actually going to... More

Lancaster, PA would normally be the last place this ladi-dadi-likes-to-party city girl would choose for a getaway, but when my a good friend visiting from Japan begged me and my husband to take a road trip there with him and his girlfriend, I couldn't turn him down. Apparently, he'd read in a magazine back home that Lancaster was a cool... More

We love The Australian Walkabout Inn and always stay there when we're in the Lancaster area. They have wonderful accommodations, great staff and fantastic food. The rooms are not only comfortable but decorated beautifully. Everything meets our needs. We're big fans!

My husband and I took a "staycation" at this lovely B&B. We stayed in the Outback Cottage which is completely separate from the main house and very private and cozy. The hot tub was such a treat and there was heated tile in the bathroom and the bedroom quarters as well as a gas fireplace. The one disadvantage to the... More

In a community full of B&Bs, this inn stands out for its beauty, its fully equipped rooms and (this is always the most important thing to me) the gracious hospitality of the innkeepers, Bob and Lynn. I stayed two nights on a business trip (I would rarely stay in a B&B for a business trip, but this was arranged for... More

We are very grateful that the Lynn & Bob offered us a free night for veteran's day. My husband and I are both Army veterans and we had a wonderful evening followed by a very task breakfast. If you are staying in Lancaster, this is the place to stay.
