We had a wonderful stay here. The whole place was just peaceful, and with four kids at home, we treasure that! We were able to relax and soak up Lynne's fabulous breakfasts, conversation and generous serving.

Very nice B&B

Lynn is a wonderful host. We stayed out back in the bugalow. It's perfect for two people. The shower is a little tight for me, but I'm 6'0" and 245lbs. Lynn keeps it nice and tity. We were there to explore the Amish, so we stay in the room much. It's only 10 to 15 minutes away fromeverything we wanted to see. Lynn prepares a wonderful breakfast. We will refer this B&B to our friends. Fred and Liz

Wonderful Hospitality!

We just returned from a 2 night stay and have nothing but great things to say about the Australian Walkabout. We stayed in the cottage and enjoyed the privacy and hot tub! Breakfast was delicious both mornings and consisted of 2 courses. Lynne and Bob were great hosts and fun to talk to. Do yourself a favor and book a massage. My husband and I agree it was probably the best massage we've ever had (Steve was my masseuse and Roz was my husband's). We enthusiastically recommend the Australian Walkabout!

Felt welcome from the beginning

Wonderful place to stay. The breakfast was terrific. The room was very comfortable and spotless! We are already getting a group of friends to go back next year. Lynn makes you feel like your home! Sue and Dennis from Scranton.
