“The perfect B&B in Lancaster”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

We were running a little late and Michael and Lark were accommodating and welcoming as we made it to the Lovelace late on a Friday. It was right before Christmas and the inn was decorated beautifully, with numerous Christmas trees throughout the B&B. The rooms were nice, and the bed was comfy. Everything was really clean. The only thing that may be seen as a downside was the small bathroom in our room. It had everything you needed, though, and it wasn't a negative for us.

The breakfast in the morning was delicious. The french toast and fresh fruit were a real treat! A snow storm was coming on Saturday and Michael and Lark had stocked the fridge and pantry with soups and snacks if we wanted to stay in. We had plans to go out that night, so we didn't take advantage of it. But, I thought it was really nice that they planned ahead like that. Michael and Lark were also really knowledgeable about the area and offered up a bunch of tips and ideas for things to do. If we're in this area again we would definitely stay at The Lovelace. We highly recommend it for your next weekend getaway!

This was our first trip to Lancaster and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. Michael and Lark were great hosts and offered a wealth of information about the local area. They've beautifully restored that building and property and their knowledge of the history of the inn made our stay all the more enjoyable.

We look forward to our next chance to visit Lancaster and stay a the Lovelace Manor again.

We love Lancaster and visit often but typically stay in motels/hotels around Intercourse and Bird in Hand. We've stayed at a number of B&Bs in Lancaster too and this was the best so far. Actually, this was the best B&B I can remember. Lark and Michael have a beautiful place and the food and service were great. We stayed in the Ellinda room. It was quite comfortable. The Lovelace Manor is convenient to downtown yet not too far from Amish country. We'll definitely come back.

Lovely quiet surroundings. Michael and Lark were lovely welcoming hosts. Very knowledgeable of the area, gave excellent directions to points of interest. We were in the Ellinda room. It was very charming. The bed was quite comfortable. We slept very well and later the host told us what type of mattress they provided. The breakfasts were outstanding. Something new to enjoy each day. More than enough. A great experience at this bed and breakfast.

My husband and I had a great time at Lovelace Manor. It was our first B&B experience, and we were a little nervous, but Lark made us feel so welcome beforehand and when we arrived. The place is lovely, and there are lots of sitting rooms and places to relax in the house. Breakfast was phenomenal - I'm still dreaming about Lark's delicious eggs! Lark and Michael have lots of guides and information about the area, so even if you don't have a plan, it's easy to find something to do when you get there. Overall, just a fabulous experience!

Lark and Michael run an outstanding B&B. We booked on line from New Zealand on the basis of the reviews and were not disappointed in anything. We had a magnificent room with separate lounge and a bathroom with the largest bath I've ever seen. The bed was very comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious and the presentation of everything was just beautiful.
We had come a long way that day and little touches like the home baking to have with a cup of tea when we arrived were very appreciated.
Thank you for a wonderful experience Lark and Michael.
