This was our second stay at Australian walkabout inn, will definitely return for a third. Stayed in the outback cottage both visits, enjoyed the hot tub after a wonderful couples massage. Breakfasts are top notch.

This was our first Bed and Breakfast, and it was great. Lynn and Bob are great hosts. Room was great and they always keep the downstairs fridge full of beer and wine! Breakfasts were very good, perfect amount and tasted awesome. Would come back!

My 7 year-old son and I spent a night at The Australian Walkabout as we passed through Lancaster last week. The house is absolutely gorgeous, and they have done a great job lovingly restoring and maintaining it. We loved their movie library, and Lynne was very attentive.

My wife and I stayed here one night last summer. It was a great experience, and the hosts were very accommodating to us. The room was very clean, with a unique taste of Australia and the breakfast was also delicious.

We loved out time at the Walkabout! Bob and Lynne took good care of us on our stay. Our massage therapists were great, Lynne offered suggestions about dining and local sites of interest, and Bob prepared an amazing fritatta for breakfast. We look forward to staying at the Australian Walkabout again soon.

My husband and I stayed at the Australian Walkabout Inn for our "Babymoon". The inn was clean and cozy! I recommend the package that offers the couples massage. The massage therapists came to the inn and were wonderful. We stayed in the Barossa Suite which was spacious, quiet and comfortable.

This was an awesome experience and a wonderful place. It was our first time at a bed and breakfast so we weren't sure what to expect but it was better than we could have ever imagined. We will go back again whenever we get up to the Lancaster area.

My partner and I went up to Lancaster this past weekend and stayed at the Australian Walkabout Inn. It was the first time my partner had stayed at a B&B, and she had a great experience there. We stayed in the Barossa room. The room was wonderful. The bed was very comfortable and the room also had a whirlpool tub,...

My partner and I decided to celebrate our one year anniversary on Dec 15th by taking a trip to Lancaster, PA. I chose this B&B because of its name, as I have travelled to Australia twice. Having never been to a B&B before we were warmly greeted by Lynn upon our arrival. She made us feel very welcomed from the...

A Veteran’s Salute: Lynn invited my wife Mayumi and I into her Walkabout B&B with open arms for a veteran’s day stay. The first thing I noticed that although the home was built many many years before I was in this world, it was well maintained and Beautifully designed.

John & Mauymi, Thank you for the 'salute', but it is our honor to host the veterans each year. Something we look forward to very much. It was very considerate of you to take the time to write such nice words. I do need to apologize, though, if we did not make it clear that the drinks in the refrigerator...
