Clearly not a bed and breakfast. The accommodations were great, clean and comfortable and price was OK. There is no sitting area for the guests and that's one of the best things about a B&B, a place to enjoy fellowship with the other guests. As others stated the breakfast part is missing. There wasn't any juice, milk or fruit. What... More

I've stayed in B&B's for years and I will say that this is the cleanest and best located B&B in the Route 340/Route 30 area. The piece was very reasonable and the check in was a breeze and the owner is very friendly. The beds were very comfy, but we could hear people downstairs in the early morning taking a... More

We stayed here while heading South after a trip to New England from VA. The rooms are very nice, with plenty of space and some nice touches like a well stocked mini fridge at sensible prices. A few nice toiletries in the bathroom, rather than plain soap, and the ability to make a hot drink in your room, would make... More

It was a pleasure having you as our guests. Thank you for your comments and suggestions. I do want to mention, for other readers, that coffee tea, hot chocolate is available on the first floor where guests from any of the 5 rooms can help themselves. Hope to see you again and listen to that wonderful accent! More

A B&B with two beds to a room is rather rare and that was what I was looking for when my mother, sister and I made our bi-annual trip to the Lancaster area. This location is very convenient for outlet shopping and Sight & Sound Theater. The only negative was that we were given room 23 on the front side... More

Thank you for your review. It was a pleasure meeting you and even discovering how small a world it is with connections to friends and missionaries in Nigeria. Just a note about the rooms - the second floor was the only available room I had left at the time of your booking. We also have 2 rooms on the first... More

My husband and I stayed at the Homestead for a long weekend in June for our anniversary. Lori met us at check in and immediately made us feel at home in her home. When we entered our room there was a bag of Hershey's chocolate candy and a note wishing us a Happy Anniversary. I thought that was very sweet:)... More

So glad you enjoyed your anniversary get-away! It was a pleasure to have you as our guests and, yes, there is a lot to do in Lancaster County! There is certainly a peacefulness here. We do vary the breakfast daily and have added yogurt and muffins some mornings instead of a coffeecake. Hopefully you can return to Lancaster County for... More

It was great to be back at Homestead Lodging! The room was great, breakfast, and Lori and Bob were great. My husband Chris and I consider Bob and Lori friends. I'd like to congratulate them on their son's engagement! I can't wait to go back.

This was our third stay at the Homestead and certainly will not be our last. The Innkeepers, Lori and Bob keep an impeccably clean B&B. Lori does all the baking for breakfast and all her baked goods are seriously delicious. They are happy to answer any questions you may have about the area, and to do anything they can to... More
