We stayed at the Australian Walkabout Inn all weekend to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was wonderful! The inn keepers did not have Australian accents as I half expected but they were super kind, warm, and welcoming. The baked pumpkin French toast was mouthwateringly delicious! The canopy bed, mini fridge, updated bathroom, sleek faucet fixtures, heated tile floors, relaxing jacuzzi,...

Thank you for your kind words. We are especially pleased that we could be your first B&B experience and that you enjoyed everything. No worries on the recycling - although there's just one trash can in the room, we take care to separate the trash and recycle everything possible - glass, cardboard, cans, etc. We hope you'll seek out B&B...

We stayed in the Outback Cottage, which is a great room with a hot tub. Everything about this place is fantastic; coffee, water and snacks are available any time, and the breakfasts are the best part! Highly recommended.

Had a wonderful experience at this b&b. Everything is very clean and the Innkeepers are very hospitable and welcoming. The only down side was that you are close to a firehall but it really didn't go off that much during our stay. I recommend this place to everyone.

My husband and I stayed at the Walkabout Inn to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. We stayed in the Outback Cottage which was just perfect! Beautifully decorated and very intimate, the cottage was private and cozy. The hot tub was our favorite thing about the room! The room also had free Wi-Fi, and a mini fridge with freezer. You...

We stayed for a few nights recently while in the Lancaster area and thoroughly enjoyed this B&B and the friendly and helpful hosts. It was so pleasant to enjoy a wonderful breakfast each day and just sit and chat with Lynne about this and that. In spite of the fairly busy street, it was very quiet inside and sleeping was...
