This was an excellent 2 days. Lynne was the perfect hostess and saw to our every need. The room was perfect, the conversation was friendly, and the breakfast was delicious. If you are looking for a B n B in Lancaster PA, this is the one. Tom

I wanted to take my wife for a romantic getaway for her birthday. We selected The Australian Walkabout due to the name because her son had lived a year abroad in Australia and she now has an interest for anything Down Under. The Inn is located in Lancaster City, but is far enough on the outskirts so you get the... More

Thank you so much, Tony for your kind words. Glad you liked the chicken sausage and found some to take home with you. That little family-owned store is one of my favorites. Next time you reserve with us, try the Victoria Suite. It is the same price as the McLaren, but instead of the hot tub, its special amenities include... More

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.

Beautiful & amazing, everything my wife & I wanted for our pre honeymoon, the cozy & intimate feeling of the room, & the privacy the outback cottage provides is out of this world combined with the service & accommodating hospitality just made it an incredible experience that one never wants to end , definitely returning for anniversaries or just a...

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

It was a cold weekend, wasn't it? So glad you enjoyed the fireplace and hot tub. Many of our guests have been coming to the Lancaster area for years and are pleasantly surprised when discovering our private indoor hot tubs. We'll look forward to hosting you again soon. 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

We're happy to accommodate 'special' arrival times whenever we can. Guests routinely comment about the sheets, and we hope you have ordered a set for yourselves and are enjoying them at home. We'll have more areas for you to explore when you return. 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

What an awesome compliment! We always ask about dietary restrictions because we want our guests to feel as 'at home' as possible. Thank you for your kind words and we hope that you'll have the same feeling about the hospitality you receive wherever your travels take you. 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
