7/19/14. Our recent stay at this B & B was a wonderful experience. It was beautifully decorated, comfortable and very clean. Our hosts were hospitable warm and helpful. The breakfast was above and beyond. As a bonus there is a lovely garden with tables and chairs beside a fish pond. A great get-a-way for couples!

WE stayed in the Bowman Suite on top. Diane and Scott were great hosts. We had a great time with the guests. We came to see the sights and sounds Moses show which was out of this world and we toured the little towns in the area as well.. Makes for a great 3-4 day weekend. Spend some time in... More

Thank you for the review, and thanks for being honest. We realize being along the main road isn't for everyone, but we also know that we are centrally located to many of the attractions that Lancaster has to offer in each direction from us, whether it be Lancaster itself, Lititz, Spooky Nook Sports, Amish Country tourist area, or antiquing in...

Being a gardener, the beautiful back yard of perennials gave a wonderful first impression. Diane and Scott were very amiable hosts, and Diane did a fabulous job of looking out for my special dietary needs. The conversations with both of them gave me new information about the area, and I felt very comfortable asking questions. When in the Lancaster area... More

Thank you for the review. Looking out for our guests dietary restrictions is our number one goal in making sure you're visit to the area is a great one. Besides, you taught us a few things that we didn't know about diet. We hope to see you again! More

I stayed here during July 4th weekend, and had a wonderful time! The house is beautiful. We had a very enjoyable visit. Scott and Diane, the innkeepers are wonderful people. The breakfast each morning was delicious, each morning we experienced a 3 course breakfast, homemade with fresh ingredients. Some of the ingredients were even picked from the garden at the... More

It was our pleasure to have you stay with us, you both were a welcome addition to our home. It's always nice to have guests comment on the gardens, because they are a full time job in themselves. And sometimes that's not enough! Thank you very much for the review. More

My husband and I stayed here on January 4th to celebrate our 6th wedding anniversary (my sincerest apologies for reviewing so late afterwards!) Everything about this visit was perfect. Scott greeted us upon arrival and was so warm and personable. I was first struck by the beauty of the decor, as it was still decorated for Christmas. He told us... More

As they say, better late than never! Thank you for the review, and we do remember that day. January is a slow time here in Lancaster County, and so you get even more personable with your guests when they are here. Having your "late'' review, brought back memories for us also of why we love being innkeepers! Would love to... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the EJ Bowman House for three nights. We both felt that this was overall the best B&B we had ever stayed in. Scott and Diane were wonderful hosts. They make you feel right "at home". Breakfast was always delicious and very filling. Our room was cozy and the beds were very comfortable. We... More

It was our pleasure to have you as our guests. The morning coffee chat in the garden was very nice, and gives us a way to get to know a little bit more about our guests. We hope to have you return again someday to us. Thank you for the review! More

This is a beautiful Inn with very friendly Innkeepers. We stayed here with our two children who enjoyed having their own separate beds (a real luxury for them on any road trip). Everything was as it should be - great breakfast, clean rooms and the gardens were beautiful. We especially enjoyed having a deck off the suite that amounted to... More

My partner and I were looking for a quick last minute get away and contacted Scott and Diane. Luckily, they had a room available. We've stayed at many B&B's over the years and this one is tops across the board. The house and gardens are beautiful. The food was delicious. We've never laughed so hard before at breakfast, nor stayed... More

With all the fine bed and breakfast all over the U.S., it is quite an honor to be thought of as "tops across the board" from one of our guests that has visited many. We certainly did enjoy our time with the both of you, some interesting conversation, and do look forward to your return. Thank you for your kind... More

It's easy to be hosts when you have great guests like we get. We were happy in some small way to make your trip to Lancaster an enjoyable one. We are also glad that you enjoyed the gardens, it makes it less like work when someone appreciates it. Thanks for the review. More

Wanda and I were very pleased. It was like we were with family. Scott and Diane made our stay amazing. Our room was perfect and the bed was so soft. Breakfast was a treat and always excellent. The pond and flowers were so pretty. Thanks for allowing us to share your home.

Thank you very much for the review. On the same hand we must review you and say we enjoyed all the laughter you brought to the house. You certainly were missed when you left, not just by us, but by the other guests as well. Thanks again! More
