Definitely Coming Back!

Similar to another review here, our stay was scheduled at the last minute, therefore my fiance and I got the smallest room with two twin beds which was the only one available. But upon arrival David (we didnt meet Gail til' the next morning) was more than welcoming and the room was quaint and neat as a pin. The room was a little small but cheery and adequate for our needs. Dave and Gail were wonderful hosts and answered all our questions eagerly with as many details as they could. Breakfast choices were limited but everything was fresh which is preferred to a smorgasbord of food that you don't know how long has been sitting there. My only warning to future visitors who might get that particular room would be to make sure you put a towel down on the floor for when you come out of the tub/shower. The floor in that bathroom is a type of laminate or vinyl of some kind and is VERY slippery if you step on with wet feet from the shower. My fiance almost took a landing himself. One very cool thing about that room is the lamp on the nightstand between the two beds. It lights three different ways!! turn the switch once and the bottom half lights up softly so that u can use it as a night-light almost. turn it 2 times and the bottom and top are both lit. and then the third turn will keep the top lit and turn off the bottom i believe. then the fourth turns the whole thing off. All in all we are definitely coming back here! Poughkeepsie, NY

The guest home offered excellent service at a very affordable price. The hosts are very familiar with the community offerings and they are respectful of your privacy. The spring time land scape was well cared for, offering a very pleasant outside experience. The location is conveniently near local restaurants, shopping and the Sight and Sound theater.

Like coming home!!

Convenient location to tourist attractions. Innkeepers are very friendly and helpful.Even though they don't provide a full breakfast( continental only) they have very good baked goods and also cereals,toast,ect. Rooms are really nice and all individually unique. Just a nice home like atmoshere. We have stayed there three times and highly recommend it.

More than a "Guest Home"

I'm writing this review several months later... but here it goes. We stayed there many months ago, June 2013. It was a short stay, only one night, but we felt very comfortable, like in no other homestay we've been. Dave and Gail were very attentive and kind, trying to help us with all the requests we made (information about places to eat, places to visit, getting a local Amish/Mennonite guide, etc...) I'd definitely recommend this Guest Home if you're visiting the area and want to feel that you're part of the place. I hope I can get back there in a near future!

Like visiting old friends

I used to travel extensively with my work, and I tried to stay in B & Bs wherever possible. This weekend trip was planned at the last minute, and accommodations in the area were all full. When I found the Old Road Guest Home with vacancies, I wondered. Well, it was one of the very best, most comfortable B & Bs I have ever known! Immaculate, comfortable, fine breakfasts, and Dave and Gail are as friendly and helpful as two people could possibly be! I look forward to going back. Highly recommended.

Wonderful place to stay. Feels just like you are at home. Very relaxing and has beautiful grounds. Dave & Gail are very friendly and helpful. We couldn't ask for a better place to stay. We recommend anyone coming to Lancaster to make their reservations at the Old Road Guest Home. Breakfast was great for us. We would certainly stay again when we are in this vicinity and rooms are available. Harold and Alma; Burl & Donna, Belleville, Ont. Can.

Gail et Dave sont des personnes gentilles, attentionnées. Leur maison est à leur image : tout est pensé afin de permettre un séjour inoubliable, ce qui a été le cas. Ils ont une connaissance de leur environnement qui permet de visiter au mieux cette très belle région. Patricia et Franck TRANSLATION : Gail and Dave are nice people, caring. Their home is their image: everything is designed for an unforgettable stay, which was the case for us. They have a great knowledge of their region. This allows you to visit the best places.

Another pleasant experience for us!

The hospitality is always above and beyond. The innkeepers, Gail and Dave, could not be more friendly and helpful

Just for a night

Lovely home and grounds. Quiet with a good location for everything. Shower very small in my room - but very clean! No hot breakfast food.
