I recently spent two weeks at the Walkabout Inn from late January to early February. As someone who has traveled extensively in Europe and America, this was the best B&B experience I have ever had--anywhere!
As a business traveler, I was especially appreciative of how the innkeepers (Bob and Lynne), went out of their way to accommodate my early morning schedule. I was given a first-class breakfast each morning with homemade delights that included cinnamon scones, poached pears, baked oatmeal, French toast, and egg strata. There was always plenty of high-quality hot coffee and juice, too.
The rooms were immaculately clean and my room was always made-up to perfection by the time I returned each evening. Lynne and Bob invited me to enjoy a glass of wine on several evenings as I relaxed in their elegant parlor. I truly felt like a friend-of-the-family. Bob and Lynne can read a guest like few innkeepers I have met. On nights when I needed to work in my room enjoying their free wi-fi access, I was given the peace and quiet I required, but on evenings when I had more free time, Bob and Lynne were always available to visit with to make one feel more welcome. If every guest receives the treatment I enjoyed, Bob and Lynne are guaranteed to be fully booked for the foreseeable future!
I plan to advise my business associates to make reservations at the Walkabout Inn anytime they are in the Lancaster area. Competitive prices create a great value given the amenities and furnishings. The accommodations alone beat any local hotel, but with exceptional service to rival the Ritz Carlton, the Walkabout Inn is in a class by itself. They have raised the standard for B&Bs in Lancaster County! Truly 5-stars!
