Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 11, 2013

This was our first stay at a bed & breakfast, and what an experience it was! The house is absolutely beautiful and is perfectly located to all Lancaster attractions. Our bedroom was so cozy and the fireplace and heated tile floors made for such a nice atmosphere. Scott and Diane are kind and attentive and are wonderful hosts. The cookies in the common kitchen were delicious! We loved being able to pick out a movie from their huge collection to watch in our room. The breakfast was delicious. We had been looking forward to see what treats we would be served, and we were not disappointed! Please consider this location for your next getaway. You will have an awesome experience and will want to go back.

Diane and I always sit around the table and listen to the stories and interaction between our guests, and you could tell everyone enjoyed the personalities of the both of you. We hope you come back to see us soon, there is more good food and good times to be had.

This was my first stay at a B&B, and a delightful one. I needed a weekend escape and boy did I pick the right place. Diane and Scott were excellent hosts! They were so welcoming and warm. They were also very helpful with their knowledge of local attractions and activities.The house is just beautiful ( clean and comfortable). The food was absolutely delicious,and the company was pleasant. I can't wait to share this experience with family and friends.

Our romantic getaway weekend was highlighted by a great stay at the EJ Bowman House. Scott and Diane were wonderful, engaging hosts and we would definitely return to this charming B&B. Diane had some amazing hot chocolate waiting for us upon our arrival, which was a very welcome sight given our day spent in cold weather. Breakfast was also very good and plentiful.

Room Tip: Highly recommend the Bowman Suite for couples looking to spoil themselves!

This was our first stay at a bed & breakfast and what a perfect first experience! From the comfortable and inviting rooms, to the heated bathroom floor, to the fireplace in our room, to the comfortable bed, and how perfectly decorated the whole house was....everything was perfect. Scott and Diane are very personable and pleasant. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and overall, the whole experience was more than we could've hoped for.

It's easy to be innkeepers when your guests are outgoing and personable. Thank you so much for all the kind words. Don't forget the steaks and angel food cake on your return!

This was the first time in a B&B for my wife and I so there is nothing to really compare to. The experience, however, was very enjoyable in every way. The hosts, Diane and Scott, are very welcoming and made us feel right at home. The house is beautiful with several rooms of common area to enjoy. The common kitchen had several snacks to choose from. There was also a vareity of teas and coffees, and a fridge stocked with soda and beer!!! There was also a main sitting room with a fire place, dining room, then another room with a TV and a huge DVD library to enjoy. We got there late and only stayed one night but hope to enjoy more of the house on our next stay.
We were in the Witmer room. Our room was very comfortable with the most amaing sheets I ever felt. There was a gas fire place and a TV with several premium stations to watch. It was our honeymoon so the tv never got used.... :) Also, the private bath had heated tile floors (felt really good in the morning) and some homemade local soap. We ended up buying some in the gift shop to take home.
Breakfast was really good!!!! It started with a creme brulee, oatmeal, and blueberry dish. I dont really like oatmeal but this stuff was the best breakfast treat I have had in a long time. Following that were baked pears then a delicious breakfast casserolle. Diana is an awesome cook! You will not leave hungry. Near the end of our meal Scott and Diana sat with us and the other guests to exchange stories and small talk.
You will not be dissapointed with this B&B! We are already planning a trip back this Summer to see the gardens and hope to return every year for our anniversary. If you have an questions, just send them along. ltownbarry@gmail.com

This was our second stay at the EJ Bowman House and it definitely will not be our last. The owner's (Scott and Diane) did an excellent job at making us feel welcome. Our room (the Bowman Suite) was clean and comfortable. We also enjoyed the three course gourmet breakfast and the company around the table. If you are looking for a weekend getaway in Lancaster this is the place to stay.

My wife & I spent two wonderful nights here and we have to rate the Bowman House "a perfect 10". The rooms were great and everything was spotless throughout the entire house. After a long drive through a snowstorm in January to get there; nothing could have felt better when we first arrived, then to cozy up to the fireplace in the Living Room where we were greeted by our Innkeepers Diane & Scott. {On a cold Winter's evening; we really enjoyed the fireplace in our own room and also the heated tile floor in the bathroom}.
The 3-course breakfasts were awesome and for the rest of the day, there were always all kinds of goodies in the kitchen area to snack on.
What impressed us the most was the hospitality of Diane & Scott. From the moment we first walked in the door and throughout our entire stay; they treated us as "family" and not just as overnight guests.
We definitely recommend EJ Bowman House to anyone looking for accomodations in the Lancaster area.
