The EJ Bowman house is a great place to base yourself as you explore Lancaster and environs. The building itself is well-maintained in the elegant splendor of yesteryear. The antique period furnishings are thoughtfully placed and the rooms and bathrooms are clean. Diane did a wonderful job as hostess and her breakfast was outstanding - just what one would expect...

We needed to get away from city life, and happened on EJ Bowman House B&B for a last minute excursion out to Lancaster. The husband and wife team (Scott and Diane) were very courteous and friendly, and made a delicious breakfast spread. Their recommendations for dinner and ice cream were good, and we very much enjoyed the covered bridge tour... More

My husband and I stopped here on our way to Hershey. This was hands down the best lodging I have ever experienced. The couple who own and runs the establishment take great pride in the details. Everything from the hand soap in the bathroom to the thread counts of the sheets was nothing but the best. Breakfast was also one... More

My husband and I stood at the EJ Bowman house this past weekend. I have to say it was a beautiful time spent! We celebrated our five year anniversary and our first child who is on the way.

Me and my boyfriend visited the EJ Bowman House this past weekend. The place was a nice mansion converted into B&B, beautiful place. Diane and Scott were friendly and sweet. The decor of the house was beautiful. I only have few minor comments. I love the room that we were staying in (The hauck room) and the high ceiling, but... More

Thank you for the review. We're glad that you enjoyed your restaurant recommendation but I'm sorry that the 9:00 breakfast was too early. In all honesty, with an 11:00 check out we can't do a later breakfast, and still have the rooms ready for 4:00 check ins. But we are always listening to what our guests have to say in... More

We were met by a most welcoming couple. The O'Donnell's know what they're doing when it comes to giving guests necessary information, then giving us space to enjoy the home and grounds. The backyard is a mature garden, serene with waterfall and pond: picture lily pads floating above exotic fish. Nice private groupings of patio furniture welcome you to linger... More

We have driven past the Bowman House many times during our visits to family and finally booked a stay over the past weekend. We stayed in the Murphey Room that faced Lititz Pike.
