We were there in February 2017 and were astounded by our visit with Keith and Brad. I felt more like a long lost relative than a guest. The welcoming was genuine and Keith was there to help haul our one night stay belongings even though none was required. A very nice port was there for whoever had a thirst along...

Comfortable, spotless, friendly, and delicious are just some of the words that describe our stay at the Lancaster Bed and Breakfast. Brad and Keith made us feel so welcome and gave very helpful tips on downtown Lancaster, restaurants, and seeing the sights in the Amish countryside. We initially planned on a one-night stay, but extended our visit for an extra...

For a last minute weekend getaway with my wife we decided to stay at the Lancaster after reading many positive reviews and we were not disappointed in any way. Ideally located at the edge of Lancaster city, it is close to downtown and one can easily go to sights in the countryside. The B&B is quaint and charming, nicely decorated...

It was such a lovely stay and we went for the big suite with the soaking tub and it was worth it. The entire property is enchanting and we felt like we had the entire house to ourselves.

It's all in the details. From the claw-foot tub, to the robes and the chocolate on the bed, to the delightful breakfast and snacks.

Brad and Keith are amazing hosts! We always love our stay. Rooms are cozy and very clean, the breakfast is amazing, and our stay is always relaxing and refreshing! The price is very reasonable. This B&B has turned into our getaway from the city and we return as often as we can. We highly recommend this B&B.
