The Australian Walkabout Inn Bed & Breakfast

Reviewed September 27, 2011

This past weekend my husband and I visited the charming city of Lancaster for the first time for each of us. We debated about where to lodge and looked and reviewed hotel rooms but they all seemed so ordinary plus we were hard pressed to easily find an outstanding review of one.

Well, one of us got the idea to explore the possibility of staying at a B & B...we began to look at those in the Lancaster area, at their amenities, aesthetics and reviews. A lot looked nice but something stood out with The Australian Walkabout B & B..the pics of the rooms looked charming..reasonable rates and most importantly to us, were the personal reviews folks had left. One after the other review attested to comfortable accommodations, delicious breakfast fare and awesome hospitality from Bob and Lynne...the guest books in our room and the main foyer had similar stories...all travelers/visitors happy and looking forward to another visit to The Australian Walkabout B & B and after our stay, we say the same..Bob and Lynne were most welcoming..their sweet hospitable and helpful spirits made our trip extra pleasant. As we were brand new to the area, their tips and suggestions were most welcomed. Our room was cozy and comfortable and did I mention the sheets? Luxurious spa-like linens made our nights' sleep even more heavenly. Our trip was great in every way..we loved Lancaster, its' charm and relaxing pace of life and our experience at Bob and Lynne's home made it a getaway that we plan on taking soon and more often!

WIth out a doubt, the AWI is top notch! My wife and I had a weekend get-a-way and decided to stay here. From the moment we arrivied, we knew we made the right choice. Everything from the room, the grounds, the location, the breakfast, the massage service, the local information provided was A+++. We loved it so much, we already made our reservation for next year!! Thanks so much Lynn and Bob.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent!

This was our first B&B experience in 32 years of marriage and now we are asking ourselves what took us so long. Inn Keepers, Bob and Lynne, were wonderful. Our stay at their beautiful home was like visiting old friends. The relaxing glass of wine from one of the local wineries made it even more delightful as we chatted with Bob and Lynne about things to do in their area. Our room was so comfortable and warm with our own fireplace! Romantic and charming tipped the scale on this one! To top it off, the breakfast was incredible with local sausages served from one of the neighbors farms... seeing the local Amish folks passing by in their horse drawn buggy's was something that we don't see in the city. Amazing and relaxing - we left realizing how important it is to take time out of your busy life and head to the Country - to sit and smell the fresh air of cut grass, home baked goods in the oven as well as meet new friends along the way. Thank you Bob and Lynne - we look forward to our return!! Bill and JoBeth Woodward

Room Tip: We stayed in the "Suite" with it's own private entrance and sitting room...loved it!

Very comfortable accommodations and Lynn (Innkeeper) was very helpful and hospitable. Because of our busy schedule, we did not get to take advantage of the breakfasts that Lynn prepared. They sounded wonderful! I would recommend this Inn to anyone visiting the area.

We had a wonderful time and felt right at home from the first moment we arrived. Lynne made us feel so welcome and the Breakfast every morning was wonderful and not just you everyday breakfast. Our room was beautiful. We stayed in the outback cottage which is behind the actual house. Hot tub, wonderful king size bed, just so relaxing and peace and quiet. We have 3 sons so quiet is not a word that happens too much in our home. We will be back for sure!! We loved it and this was our first B&B stay. We fell in love with Lancaster and this was one of the big reasons.

Lynn and Bob were the perfect hosts. We stayed in the Victoria suite it was beautiful. The room was spotless and the bed was very comfy. The Inn is centrally located it took us less than a half hour to get to any attraction or shopping. Lynn's breakfasts were delicious.
Will stay here again next time we return to Lancaster.

We took a much needed, very last minute overnight trip to Lancaster PA this week. Fortunately, we were able to book a room at the Australian Walkabout. I am happy to reiterate what others have already posted: lovely property; friendly, knowledgeable owners; convenient location; and a delicious breakfast. I loved the way breakfast was scheduled for 9 am (vs. a range of time). This allowed us to meet the rest of the guests and compare notes about our stay. It also allowed the owners to chat with the guests and share their knowledge of the area.
