Our room was very comfortable. Brad and Keith are wonderful hosts with a tremendous knowledge of the Lancaster area. Keith's breakfast was amazing! Make sure to let them know about any food allergies or preferences as they pride themselves in accommodating them.

This was our first time at a B&B. The house is 105 years old, but doesn't look it. The grounds impressed us, with the blooming tulips and mini waterfall. The place is immaculate. There are snacks available, as well as port and cookies in the living room. There are DVDs to borrow. The breakfast was beyond our expectations, with homemade...

Never have I ever stayed at a place that was so organized, immaculately maintained and the breakfast was a culinary masterpiece. Brad and Keith were both amazing and personable! I will definitely stay at The Lancaster when I visit Lancaster in the future.

Keith and Brad are awesome hosts. The grounds are perfectly manicured, the cottage is pristine with all the touches of home. Keith is a super resource for tips around town and restaurant suggestions. Breakfast was a work of art. Words can't describe the meal that we had each morning. My husband was skeptical about the whole B & B deal...

These guys aren't #1 B&B in Lancaster for no reason. Brad and Keith could not have done more to help make our girls' week away trip more comfortable. The rooms were comfy, the breakfasts creative and delicious. They also gave us great recommendations for places to eat, shop and sight see.

We agree with all the positive comments from so many reviewers, about the gracious welcome from Brad and Keith, the cleanliness and charm of the B&B, and the well-prepared locally-sourced breakfast.
