My wife took me away for a surprise getaway for my birthday. This was our 1st stay @ a BnB & it was truly a wonderful experience. Lynne & Bob were tremendous hosts, very warm & friendly. The breakfast each morning was something unique, made from scratch, much better than your basic eggs & meat etc. We defintely plan on...

My wife and I spent two restful nights at the Walkabout (Aug 15-17). The room (Adelaide Suite) was charming and comfortable. Lynn, the owner was very friendly, hospitable and helpful and we were treated to delicious gourmet breakfasts. We highly recommend this B&B to our friends and relatives and look forward to staying at this inn when we return to...

Enjoyed our stay here when we came to Lancaster for a wedding. The room we had was very comfortable (Adelaide suite) and I really enjoyed the sleep number mattress! Breakfast was also good as was the conversation we had with our hosts. Only wish we could have stayed another day! Thank you for your hospitality! Glad to have your mugs...

This is a great place, first we were greeted like family by the owner and she was full of info of the area, she took us to our room, we stayed in the cottage on the property. Lynn explained all about the B&B and asked if we needed anything, since we checked in late we needed a place to eat,...

I have been coming here for several years and it has been a great place to stay while I visit my mother, who lives in the area. The innkeepers (Lyn and Bob) are always friendly and helpful; visiting Lancaster seems like visiting them as friends. Breakfast is always different on any given morning but it is consistently excellent. Convenient, quiet,...

Spent a week at the Australian Walkabout for a personal retreat. Stayed in the Adalaide Hills suite. Very comfortable. The bed is a sleep number bed. Nice sitting room area with a small fridge. Air conditioner in the bedroom but it adequately cooled the sitting room as well. The bathroom features a whirlpool tub/shower combo. The tub is quite deep...

Husband and I stayed here and chose a room with an extra sitting room. Room was cozy and appreciated the sleep number mattress. Sheets were heaven. Innkeeper made a point of going out of her way to make us comfortable from the moment we crossed the threshold. Asked what we planned on doing while in town and made several suggestions...

Lovely room with every detail well thought out. We stayed two nights while exploring the Lancaster area and will definitely be return guests. I believe all rooms have whirlpool tubs with the exception of one which has a double sized large shower.

As frequent visitors, we were looking for somewhere different to stay in Lancaster, so we decided to try one of the B&Bs. After reading their reviews and ratings we decided to stay at the Walkabout. So glad we did. We stayed in the Outback, which was a room not located in the main house. The room was quaint with an...
