Diane and Scott are so hospitable and the food, room and ambiance are top rate. We have every thing we needed and enjoyed the communal breakfast. The food is fabulous; Diane is a wonderful cook and both her and Scott make sure your food requests are exactly what you want.

Our stay at the EJ Bowman House was great. Scott and Dianne keep a lovely inn. The home is beautiful, welcoming and the hosts are friendly. The beds were the most comfortable we stayed in during our 10-day whirlwind tour through the region, and the jacuzzi tub was essential for revitalizing our travel-weary selves. Breakfast was tasty and we highly... More

Stayed at the EJ Bowman House for a week, had a wonderful time here. Diane and Scott are attentive and friendly hosts.

Thank you for taking the time to review us, and for being honest. There is some street noise at various time, but remember, a house like this that was built in the 1860's for an esteemed doctor had to be built for easy access. We hope as you stated, that we more than made up for that with our beautiful... More

A lovely weekend stay for our family of four at the EJ Bowman house. We loved the beautiful and spacious 3rd floor suite, especially the truly comfortable beds!

Thank you very much for a kind review. When you have a full house and all the hot and cold drink options that we do, you have to have a good idea where to seat guests that you can serve drinks and food(based on dietary restrictions), in an orderly fashion. But you are also correct that at a community table,... More

We stayed during the Lancaster Quilt Week show. The location was an easy commute, the food DELICIOUS, and the hospitality outstanding. Every comfort was provided, even a snack kitchen for use off hours. Don't hesitate to make a reservation here. You'll love it.
