We stayed for a few nights recently while in the Lancaster area and thoroughly enjoyed this B&B and the friendly and helpful hosts. It was so pleasant to enjoy a wonderful breakfast each day and just sit and chat with Lynne about this and that. In spite of the fairly busy street, it was very quiet inside and sleeping was... More

Thank you for taking a few moments to share your experience at our Inn. So glad you found the place to be restful and that you enjoyed your time here. We hope to have you back soon. No worries about the cat. He was back in a short time. We usually do not allow him out into the guest areas,... More

We stayed at the Walkabout B&B at relatively last minute notice, and Lynne and Bob were incredibly gracious in working with our plans. Their hospitality truly blew us away from the beverages available to them offering to pick us up when we locked the keys in the car. The facility was beautiful and very well-kept--we immediately felt comfortable at home.... More

We spent three nights here and the service was great Our only minor thing was the air conditioner shut off at night.When we stayed it was very hot even at night . We would still stay here because of the friendliness not to mention the awesome breakfasts!!!

Thoroughly enjoyed our recent long weekend to Lancaster and one contributing factor -- the hospitality of the Innkeepers and this beautiful home! My husband and I loved the fact that brekkie was not served until 0900hrs ... allowed for a leisurely morning. Coffee was always ready earlier and I enjoyed my cuppa while sitting on the front porch swing. Village... More

We loved our stay here. I'd give 41/2 stars if they let me. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because they serve breakfast at 9am. My wife and I are early risers and having to wait until 9 for breakfast was a minor inconvenience. Other than that everything was perfect.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Beautiful setting. Accommodations, breakfast, and hospitality were first rate! Loved the soaking tub. The bed in our suite was a bit high and the innkeeper was very accommodating, providing us with a step stool. Would definitely return.

We celebrated my mother's 50th birthday with a full b&b rental. Lynne was so accommodating. She helped me plan every detail....recommending spas and bakeries. She even went to the trouble of picking up the cake I had ordered. Our rooms were fabulous and well stocked and the breakfasts were filling and fantastic. She was very accommodating of our food allergies.... More

The breakfast each morning was great and very tasty. Would definitely return and also recommend to our family and friends. Jarvis & Cathy Hawley... More

Nothing but fun from the first moment we entered the inn until the morning we left. Show-stopper breakfasts, good talk at the table. There was no charge for beverages. And we especially enjoyed the access to Amish culture this location provided. (We passed a man driving an 8-horse team to plow his field! Shades of the past.)
