I stayed at the E.J. Bowman House while on a business trip to Lancaster. I arrived late, and Diane was there to meet me. She gave me an interesting, short history and tour, and I headed off to my room. The room itself was plenty spacious and had great light during the day from its three large windows. There were...

Our stay at the EJ Bowman house could not have been better. The house is a real 1860's gem, beautifully kept by Diane and Scott, who made us feel welcome from the minute we arrived. They showed us around, made sure we had everything we needed and even phoned ahead for us to reserve a table at a local restaurant....

We have just left Diane and Scott after spending two nights at their gorgeous BnB. We so enjoyed our stay and our hosts went beyond our expectations with so much detail that was so lovely to enjoy. They were so helpful and breakfast so yum we never needed lunch. Totally recommend to stay here.

Very nice B&B. This was the first time we ever stayed at a B&B. The home is perfect and the hosts enjoy hosting guests. We stayed in the suite, which was awesome. Pick out a DVD and watch a good movie or read a book. We loved the place, and you will too.

We spent a comfortable night here, with great local advice on where to eat and visit from Scott and Diane. They even have a printed driving tour of the area. The house is lovely and very spacious. A small kitchen area exclusive to guests allowed us to chill wine, make coffee, get ice or reheat food. We had to leave...

Owners, Scott and Diane, made us feel right at home. I am a travel agent and standards are pretty high to be honest but all expectations were exceeded at EJ Bowman House. Location was an easy 30 minute drive to Hershey, PA and 20 minutes to Amish village. Hope to return in the future.

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...

Thank you very much for your review. We hope that Franklin and Marshall ends up being high on your college list so that you can return to visit. You were all a delight to meet and were part of a very good breakfast group that weekend! Thanks again!

Stayed at the EJ Bowman House for a week, had a wonderful time here. Diane and Scott are attentive and friendly hosts. Common rooms are beautiful, make sure you take time to check out the murals painted on the walls. The rooms are lovely and comfortable. Gas fireplaces in each bedroom and heated tile floors in the bathrooms were especially...

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...
