E.J. Bowman House B&B
Stayed here for 3 days and 2 nights. Breakfasts are gourmet. Rooms are furnished in real antiques. Bathrooms are heated by radiant heat through the tile floors - very nice on the feet. Hosts were gracious and accomodating, and knowledgeable of points of interest in the area. Mr. Murphey is a professional musician! (Irish flute). Had a great time. Recommend to our friends.

Alice & "EY" Murphey are terrific hosts. Alice is a great cook. The breakfasts alone are worth the stay. They both go out of their way to make your stay a great experience. We have been staying with them since 2001 and always look forward to another stay with them at their very lovely B&B. We feel like we are going to see family when we stay with them.

Wonderful stay--beautiful place and excellent service from Alice and Murphey, the lovely owners. One of the better B&Bs we've stayed in over the years. We'd highly recommend it.

Gracious hosts, wonderful comfortable room. It will be our first stop when we return again to Lancaster county. This is a full service bed and breakfast with the most scrumptious breakfast we have ever had. Murphy and Alice made us feel right at home in their beautiful house. This bed and breakfast had all of the extras and then some to make you feel very welcomed.
Job well done!

My husband and I stayed in their Bowman Suite for our honeymoon and were thrilled with everything about the bed and breakfast, food, hospitality, and the area. If you need a vacation I recommend you call this place and pack your bags immediately. Don't worry about planning - there is plenty to do and Alice and Murphy are AMAZING at recommending fabulous places to visit every day.

The breakfast was wonderful and made me fall in love with Alice's french toast (even though I've never been a french toast fan). The room was immaculate, roomy, and had so many incredible details that you really have to see for yourself. The whole home was lovely with so many things to do right there and close to so many other places to visit. There are snacks out to munch on, videos and cds to entertain yourself with, coffee and tea available at any moment and so much more! I highly recommend this place and we will go back there as soon as we can!:-)

As frequent and satisfied customers we would highly recommend the E J Bowman House to anyone visiting the Lancaster area. The Innkeepers, Alice & Murphey, have always gone out of their way to make our time there pleasant and comfortable. Nothing is too much trouble for them and they are always there to give you direction and help you pack as much into your visit to Lancaster as possible. Their knowledge of the area, including restaurants, tourist sites and seasonal events, is extensive. We have been staying at this B&B at least 4-5 times a year for the last 8 years and would not consider staying at/in any other accommodation. We recommend this establishment for anyone interested in learning about the Amish culture, seeing the many attractions and experiencing the relaxed way of life offered in Lancaster county. Alice and Murphey will give you great ideas what to see, suggest restaurants for your specific taste in food and give accurate directions to any of these places. This is a 5 star B&B in our opinion and in the opinion of our friends and family who have stayed there also.

We stayed in the Bowman Suite and everything was comfortable and beautiful. (Especially the Bathroom) I have stayed in many expensive hotels, but this had the charm and service that they could not equal. Breakfast was Amazing and the "music and snack room" was enjoyable for my children. Alice and Murphey were extremely helpful and very friendly. I would recommend this to everyone and hope to return myself.
