“Lovely Stay at Lovelace!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

From the moment we arrived, we knew we had found the right B&B for us. Lark greeted us warmly and showed us all around. As B&B owners, ourselves, we fully appreciate Lark and Michael's attention to detail. Their Victorian home is beautifully and thoughtfully restored, yet has all of the modern amenities. Our hosts were very helpful with dinner suggestions, securing us a reservation at one of their favorites. There were snacks, ice, coffee, etc. for us to help ourselves to at any time and a beautiful wrap-around porch to enjoy with our morning coffee. The room (Ellida) was thoughtfully laid out. In fact, a small decanter of port was awaiting our arrival! Our 4-poster bed was oh-so comfortable! Lark and Michael served a breakfast that was presented beautifully and showed a lot of care and preparation. Our hosts do it right. They introduced each of us to the other guests and told a little something about everyone to get the conversation flowing easily. Lark and Michael seem to know just how to make every guest feel special without being, in any way, intrusive. We look forward to our next visit to the Lancaster area and wouldn't think of staying anywhere else!

After a full day of travel, it was wonderful to arrive at Lovelace Manor. Lark and Michael were so welcoming and not at all pushy. Everything you could think of is right there, and I found that if I thought 'it would be nice to have...' almost before I could finish that thought, I had spotted it! We've travelled extensively around the world, and haven't found a place that so thoroughly anticipated guests' needs. We were upgraded, and our room was huge, with a bed you just fell into and didn't want to leave! Breakfast was a perfect mix of savoury and sweet food, and if you like cooking Lark will share her Cinnamon Scone recipe with you. We can't recommend Lovelace Manor highly enough and hope we have a reason to be in the Lancaster area and stay there again.

It was such a pleasure having the two of you stay with us. And it always makes me feel great when someone from the UK actually wants my scone recipe! If she chooses F&M, maybe we will get to see you again in the future!

After a day of travel, you gotta love a room that welcomes you with port and chocolate! Our hosts were delightful and knowledgeable. They plotted out a route off the beaten path where wtasted the region's best soft pretzel, visited a mill and toured the Amish countryside. We enjoyed the elegant manor with its meandering paths, many gardens, cooing doves, and sunny verandas. Bed was extremely comfortable; Breakfast was a delicious 3-course meal with good company and served in the elegant dining room. What a lovely and memorable weekend!

We have been staying at Lovelace Manor twice a year since 2005. Lark and Michael are so welcoming and make us feel at home. The rooms are very cozy with our favorite being the suite with the claw foot tub. Lark's breakfast is always delicious! There hasn't been one meal that we haven't enjoyed! After a long day of shopping we enjoy sitting on the porch and relaxing with a hot cup of coffee. There are many B&B's in the area, but we enjoy Lovelace so much that we haven't even tried any others. When you find such a wonderful place and such friendly and accommodating innkeepers, why go somewhere else!

Room Tip: All rooms are nice. We have personally stayed in all except for the Lucasta, which is more for busi...

We recently spent three nights at Lovelace Manor in the Rose Suite, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. All four rooms are large and attractive, but the Rose Suite is at the back of the house, and it is probably the quietest room and has the largest bathroom. The bed was comfortable, and the linens were top quality. Lark and Michael provided excellent breakfasts (two courses) each morning, and Lark's suggested driving tour of the Amish countryside was exactly what we wanted. We enjoyed the grounds and the aviary, and I was sorry that we did not have time to sip a glass of wine on the beautiful wrap around porch. I would highly recommend Lovelace Manor for any one who plans to be in the Lancaster area. Wheatland (the home of James Buchanan) is right down the street from Lovelace Manor, and we enjoyed our tour of the home. If you need suggestions for activities or restaurants, be sure to check with Lark and Michael, as they were very helpful. I would love to return for another visit.

Room Tip: Rose Suite costs a little more, but the larger bathroom and distance from the front street made it w...

Thank you for the nice review. It was a pleasure to meet you both and we're happy you enjoyed your stay. There is so much to do in this area and I'm glad that you got a good sampling of what Lancaster County has to offer. By the way, our aviary has a new resident. Our first baby dove was born shortly after you left!

Our stay of one night at Lovelace Manor was very enjoyable. Lark and Michael, the hostess and host, were very friendly and accommodating. Their expertise in restoring and decorating the property was evident throughout. The homemade goodies which Lark provided upon our evening arrival were perfect, as well as the coffee and tea. Upon settling in our beautifully appointed, comfortable room, we found that every amenity had been provided. Anyone who looks forward to breakfast as we do, will find a very satisfying, scrumptious breakfast awaiting them in the morning. My only regret was that we could only stay one night, but we will definitely book future stays at Lovelace Manor B&B as well as refer friends who plan to stay in the Lancaster, PA area.

Room Tip: The corner suite appeared to be larger with a sitting area.

We frequently visit B&B's after many years of business travel staying in chain hotels. I'm looking for comfort, ambience, quality and surroundings that I aspire to have in my own home at a reasonable price. Lovelace Manor has it all. But even more. At first I was a sceptic of so many high ratings when I reviewed this and other sites regarding Lovelace Manor. Having stayed here only two nights (they were full), I understand why so many guests rated it highly and are "repeat guests". Lark and Michael simply keep the Manor in wonderful condition and continually attend to the smallest of details to ensure your stay is perfect. The wrap around porch and garden are perfect for sipping wine from the nearby vineyards after a day of touring. There is so much to do in this area, it requires more than one trip.

We stayed in the Rose Room with a king size bed and attached full antique bathroom, all decorated beautifully with old and new amenities. The suite had wonderful cross ventilation, sunshine and moonlight if you just wanted to open windows versus use fans, air conditioning, heating or fireplace (electric/gas, not sure). It had so many temperature choices! It included an attached reading/livingroom with second t.v.

The hosts, Lark and Michael are like immediate family members. Kind, knowledgable and very accommodating to diverse needs. Homemade breakfasts are bountiful and special. Croissant French Toast, sausage, assortment of juices and fantastic pineapple, berrry and cantelope fruit plate, teas and coffees. Homemade granola, yogurt and Grandmas secret recipe cinnamon scones, Lovelace Manor's version of Eggs Benedict, bacon and roast potatoes. In addition, Lark is always baking something delicious to leave as a snack in the kitchen for the guests (coconut chip cookies, brownie fudge pie). We are planning a second stay in the near future and will bring our Mom. I know now to reserve well in advance. This place is a secret to "those in the know"!

Room Tip: All rooms are on the second floor. The stairs are spacious and quite manageable with large handrail...
