“Very Relaxing Place!!!”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

My wife and I stayed at the Walkabout for a weekend getaway. Everything at the Inn was awesome!! Lynne and Bob were great hosts! I was impressed that they took time to actually sit down with their guests at breakfast and converse! Alot of places we stay we never see the owners -- not the case here!! They gave great recommendations on places to eat and things to see and do. My wife and I will certainly come back and will recommend the Walkabout to our friends and family!!

Room Tip: Love the Maclaren Vale -- it has a hot tub!!!

My husband and I stayed here for two days on our honeymoon. We chose the suite with the jacuzzi--very well appointed, comfortable mattress, high thread count sheets, and met all of our needs. Breakfasts were a gourmand's delight. So pleased ....

Everything about the Australian Walkabout Inn is perfect. Managing to balance the cozy feel of an inn with the elegance of a 5 star hotel, my husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As a young 20 something couple, we were skeptical of inns, wary of returning to "grandmas's house" on vacation. However, the Australian Walkabout exceeded all of our expectations. Additionally, it is perfectly situated between Lancaster and Strasburg/BirdinHand/Intercourse, so you're right in the heart of the action.

Pros: delicious and big breakfasts, complimentary beer and wine, privacy yet with the feeling of absolute welcome
Cons: slow internet

Don't look any further! This is the Inn in Lancaster you want to stay at!

We have visited Lancaster many times, always choosing B&B's as our "home away from home." This two- night "spur of the moment" trip to enjoy the fall leaves and the Sight & Sound production of Jonah was wonderful! Lynne and Bob were very gracious hosts. Lynne's breakfasts were delicious--she even let us try her homemade applebutter (a recent blue-ribbon winner!) Even though our weather was on the dreary side, the Barossa Suite was cozy and comfy with the reading room, jacuzzi, beverages, and homemade chocolate chip cookies. By the way, Lynne, I enjoyed the knit shop you found for me on your laptop and a great new project! Hope to see you again sometime.

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Walkabout Inn to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversay; we stayed in the Carriage House. The photos and information on the inn's website clearly conveyed what we could expect in terms of our accomodations. The Carriage house (including the bed and hot tub), surrounding grounds, breakfasts and goodies we were served, and convenience to surrounding sites fully met our expectations.

What we could not anticipate was the level of comfort we felt during our stay. Although our first visit to this charming bed and breakfast, we felt like we were staying with friends we hadn't seen in a long time .........and that we had picked up right where we left off! Lynne and Bob not only provided us with all the creature comforts, their warm and welcoming manner and captivating conversations enabled us "to get away from it all", slow down, and truly relax.

Thank you Lynne and Bob! We look forward to visiting in every season!

It was a charming stay. My room was beautifully decorated and the bed was wonderful - deep and warm. The hot tub is a plus! The hosts are gracious and warm. They visited with everyone and had a great deal of helpful information about the area.The breakfast was awesome!! Lynne's baked goods are great. I will definitely stay again.
