I was looking for a special place to celebrate my mom's birthday earlier this month and came upon The Lancaster on TripAdvisor. Rated #1 with so many glowing reviews, how could I resist? After looking at the website and deciding that this was the place, I was hoping that the rates would be reasonable. Imagine my surprise that I could book a room for 2 nights for less that $250 total? And breakfast for 2...sign me up!
When we arrived, mom and I were greeted by Keith and Brad. Their kind personalities and the comforts of the inn made you feel like you were coming home to visit family. We had booked The Juniper room, a room on the second floor with 2 twin beds and a private bath in the hall. They had turned on the air for us so the room was quite comfortable. They even left chocolates on the beds. The inn is a gorgeous old home that is decorated beautifully. There are snacks and drinks for guests, as well as port wine and yummy cookies in the living room. Mom and I hung out in the living room a few times and it truly did feel like home. Keith and Brad spent some time with us chatting after all the guests checked out. They were awesome! Definitely make time to get to know them.
And the breakfasts......well, between breakfast and the cookies, I must have gaine 5 pounds in 2 days. Fabulous.....all fresh ingredients. They know their way around the kitchen!!
So if you are looking to plan a trip to Lancaster and want to stay in a beautiful inn that is centrally located and run by innkeepers who make you feel like you are family, and feed you delicious food, I highly recommend you stay with Brad and Keith at The Lancaster. We entered as guests and left as family!
