This stay was my husband and my first stay at a B&B. We stayed in the cottage which was so quaint and cozy! From the relaxing hot tub soaks to the glorious breakfast, this B&B will surely see us again. I recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for that escape from the usual grind while keeping the feel of "home." Thank you again, Lynne, for your hospitality!

This was our first stay in a bed and breakfast and Lynne made it a very enjoyable stay. The room was very clean and breakfast was great. Lynne was very knowledgable of the area and always had suggestions of places to eat and see. Would definitely stay there again.

We had a relaxing stay. Lynne and Bob made us feel very comfortable during our visit. Breakfast was really good and Lynne went out of her way to prepare a gluten free meal for me which was most appreciated. I would highly recommend this B&B as it is very close to a lot of activities in Lancaster but far enough away where it is a bit more peaceful for relaxation.
