During our recent trip to Lancaster, we stayed at the 'world famous' Lovelace Manor B&B. We had never stayed at a bed and breakfast before, but based on all their extraordinary reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided this was the place. In the past, we always stayed at well-known chain motels, so staying in a 19th century Victorian home would be a whole new experience.
Upon arrival, we were greeted by owners, Michael and Lark, and after a quick tour of their beautiful home, they showed us to our rooms on the second floor. Each of the unique rooms were like being in a museum, but with all the modern amenities. They have thought of everything, from TV with DVD player and Wi-Fi, right down to bathrobes, decanter of wine and chocolates. The pillow-top mattress and bedding were luxurious and after supper, we all turned-in early as we were tired from our long drive from NY. The next morning, we met in their elegant dining room, where we were served a five-star gourmet breakfast with all the trimmings. The presentation of all three delicious breakfasts were stunning works of art. I really wasn't expecting anything so grand, so it was a wonderful treat. We enjoyed sitting at the table and socializing with our hosts after breakfast and picking their brains about Amish culture and points of interest in the area. Lark had prepared a 'back-roads' tour and provided us with very clear driving directions and a highlighted map. During our stay, over the next two days, we methodically worked our way through her tour and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. For a wonderful overview of Amish living in the beautiful Lancaster countryside, I advise you take her self-tour, even if you have visited Lancaster before. Lark and Michael are very hospitable and gracious hosts and they made our visit very interesting and enjoyable.
We’re definitely looking forward to returning to Lancaster County next year and staying here again. I highly recommend the exquisite accommodations and hearty breakfasts at the Lovelace Manor B&B. They genuinely deserve the TripAdvisor 2012 Certificate of Excellence Award. For more detailed info, check-out their comprehensive web site: www.lovelacemanor.com
