This time it was a girls' trip to Lancaster that brought me back to EJ Bowman House. It was as lovely and welcoming as ever. The backyard grounds were in bloom, the Koi fish wiggled up to us and the proprietors were as gracious as they could be. The highlight of our stay was the recommended "Covered Bridge Self-Driving Tour."... More

This is where we take our visitors when we go down to visit Lancaster PA, Amish Country and Hershey PA. The rooms are immaculate and beautifully decorated. Breakfast is increadible. Delicious...

Beautiful home with lots to look at, comfortable, clean rooms, and very warm and accommodating hosts with a great sense of humor. Scott and Diane made sure that we knew our options for food, travel, and entertainment...even setting up our Sight and Sound Theatre tickets. Diane is an awesome cook and accommodated my Whole30/Paleo needs. The conversation around the breakfast... More

Stayed one night and really enjoyed the hosts and the wonderful breakfast. For me the bed was a little to soft but for most they would love it. Enjoyed the gardens and the location to the outlets and antiquing was just what was needed. Close enough to activities but quiet.

I loved staying here - as soon as you step in, you feel like you are being welcomed into someone's gracious home. You can tell the owners put a lot of attention and care into every detail of the place, from the snacks (fresh-baked cookies!) in the pantry to the 3-course breakfast in the dining room. The owners were also... More

We stayed four nights and we couldn't have had a better time. The owners Scott and Diane were so nice and informative about things to do. The room was great and the breakfast were delicious. I would recommend this as a place to stay to anyone wanting to stay in a bed and breakfast.
