Stayed the for 3 nights - and what a very beautiful home they have. Clean and very homey. Loved Brad and Keith!!! The breakfast that we had were well prepared and yummy. The grounds were beautiful and enjoyed sitting on the porch on the swing. Just a wonderful time.

I travel a bit for work and spend too much time in chain hotels. When we travel on our own, we like to stay at B&Bs for the obvious reason. This place was a great find for two reasons .....

We stayed in the Chamomile and Juniper Suite with our daughter and her partner! The rooms were wonderful! My husband and I stayed in the Juniper (which is on the King St side) but weren't disturbed by any road noise. Our daughter and her partner stayed in the Chamomile and enjoyed that room too!

Thank You so very much for your support and notice about street noise. It is a 104 year old house with creaks and sounds do sneak in I am so glad it was not a bother. We loved your visit and special food is never a chore. We can't wait to see you all again this fall. Thank You again!...

We had a wonderful stay. Always a great experience! Brad and Keith, the innkeepers are very friendly and great to talk with. We love the accessibility of having coffee, water and soda available at any time of day. Fresh cookies are always available to snack on in the Living room of the main house. I especially liked the fact Brad...

The hosts are extraordinary. That's what makes this B & B special. The positives also include the fact that the breakfast was gourmet quality. The negatives are that this is located on a very busy road and you will hear the traffic all night. The house is old and so finding outlets for modern electronics can be a bit of...

We are so very sorry that you did not enjoy your time here. Sadly we both felt as soon as you arrived that would be difficult to please either of you. You had stayed in Lancaster before this visit and at the Marriott where you ended up after leaving our Inn. Both are on the very busy "King Street" and...

We stayed in the Saffron room, which was cheerful, bright, and comfortable. Brad checked us in and gave us a quick summary of what the "Lancaster" is all about, and it's about you! (us in this case).

Our 3 nights stay in this well appointed and tasteful B&B was exceptionally pleasant. Brad and Keith went out of their way to ensure our stay was exactly what we wanted. Nothing was too much trouble even brilliantly accomodating my food intolances with their spectacular breakfasts. Thanks for all the advice on local excursions and restaurant recommendations and interesting conversations.
