We spent a very comfortable and enjoyable 5 days here visiting family in the area. Our room was very nice with the amenities you would expect at a B&B of this quality. As good as the breakfasts were( and they were quite good), the conversation was better. Scott and Diane are welcoming and knowledgeable hosts. We had a great time,...

Beautiful property all around-inside and out. House and rooms are cozy, with enough common space to be comfortable out of your room. The garden and cascade pond out back are also nice and it wasn't even in full bloom since it was April. Nice amenities, including snacks and drinks available anytime. Scott and Diane are very welcoming and accommodating. They...

If you are planning a visit to the Lancaster area then the EJ Bowman House is the place to stay! Our wonderful hosts, Diane and Scott, attended to our every need with meticulous detail. The home is immaculate, the bed was "dreamy" and the breakfasts were scrumptious. The location is perfect, close enough to all the spots you would want...

Stayed 2 nights. Home is spotlessly clean and very well stocked for all of your comfort needs. Breakfast was delicious both mornings-- sweet and Savory days! I think the beautiful garden in the back could be a real plus in the summertime. Thanks Scott and Diane

This absolutely wonderful Bed and Breakfast is a find of a lifetime. The home was built in the 1800's and is immaculate. My room was a perfect size with an attached bathroom. Cost was very resonable. The owners, Diane and Scott, were very friendly - the kind of people you want to be friends with! Breakfast was original and delicious...

The EJ Bowman House was absolutely beautiful! The building is lovingly cared for and is spotlessly clean. Dianne cooks a delicious three course breakfast that you won't want to miss. Hopefully, you will be fortunate enough to be served the oatmeal cream brulee. Also, there were plenty of snacks and drinks available any time of the night or day. They...

Great hosts. Scott and Diane do everything right! Would love to stay in their B&B the next time we are in the area. The location is perfect for the area. The hosts offered many suggestions as to where to eat and sites to see. They were also willing to adjust the breakfast time to suit our schedule.

My husband and I have stayed at many B&Bs over the years, in many states. EJ Bowman is one of the very best. Hosts Diane & Scott provide a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The house is gorgeous and well appointed. Every possible amenity is included (more than any we've experienced). Look no further; make the wise choice and stay there; you...

We stayed in the very comfortable top-floor suite and enjoyed a particularly pleasant visit with our thoughtful hosts. It feels like staying with friends: drinks, cookies always available, great breakfast; good conversation and generous hosts. In my opinion, the best stay in Lancaster.

We visit the Bowman House once a month. For us it is a home away from home. Diane and Scott are wonderful innkeepers who truly care about their guests and go out of their way to make us feel welcome. The Bowman House is lovely and very clean. The rooms are well appointed as well. We stay in the Bowman...
