Stayed at the EJ Bowman House for a week, had a wonderful time here. Diane and Scott are attentive and friendly hosts. Common rooms are beautiful, make sure you take time to check out the murals painted on the walls. The rooms are lovely and comfortable.

We stayed during the Lancaster Quilt Week show. The location was an easy commute, the food DELICIOUS, and the hospitality outstanding. Every comfort was provided, even a snack kitchen for use off hours. Don't hesitate to make a reservation here. You'll love it.

A stay at this Bed & Breakfast will keep you coming back again. It did for us, and we just live 2 miles down the road! :) My husband and I like getting away every once in awhile just to spend some alone time together.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us! As much as you mention our customer service, it is very easy when you have outgoing guests, which you are.

Scott and Diane are very warm and welcoming folks! We were looking for somewhere to stay so we could spend my daughters birthday with her. She and her boyfriend are students at York College. We very much enjoyed our stay. Our room was fabulous!! Would recommend it highly

Thank you for your review. We really do enjoy running a bed and breakfast, so to be warm and welcoming is not a problem for us. We also benefit from our wonderful guests, like organizing the DVD's alphabetically(thank you!), to learning about our guests careers and interests. You are most welcome in our home anytime! Thanks again. More

We had business in the area and were looking into hotels for our 2 night stay. We then thought about a B&B. We randomly looked at the E.J. Bowman House based on their web site. We decided to make a reservation to stay there. When we arrived we were strangers greeted by Diane and Scott. After sitting and talking with... More
