“It's the little things that count!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

Lark is an absolute delight, and I was so pleased to meet another Southern girl in Lancaster. Lark even made a nice, Southern hashbrown casserole for breakfast for me. Yum, yum! Our room was spotless, and our bed was very comfy. Breakfast was delicious and fun, and there were complimentary snacks, drinks, and more. If you are interested, ask Lark to schedule a dinner for you with an Amish family. This was the highlight of our trip. Also, be sure to take Lark's driving tour of Amish country. That was the 2nd highlight of our trip. All of this PLUS a wonderful house with lots of history. What a find! Stay with Lark and Michael, and you won't be disappointed.

I'm blushing! Seriously, I am so happy that we were able to help make your trip a memorable experience. I always love having another Southerner in the house to remind me a little bit of home. We truly enjoyed meeting you and thank you so much for sharing your experience with others!

I stayed at Lovelace Manor a few nights ago for just one night visiting a friend in the area and regretted rather forlornly that I couldn't stay longer. The room is spacious, airy with just the perfect blend of modern conveniences (contemporary shower, free Internet) with old world Victorian furniture, marble sink and a heavenly silky sheets (on a thoroughly 21st century tempurpedic-type mattress). The room was spotless with all the amenities one might expect. The fridge downstairs has a snacks and beer should you be in want.
I woke up the next morning already somewhat sad that I had to anticipate leaving in a few hours.
Breakfast was a communal affair in the dining room- some kind of puff pastry with scrambled egg and other baked goods, fruit, endless coffee. Just scrumptious. They also kindly asked the night before if there are dietary restrictions or preferences.
I would highly endorse the Lovelace Manor if you want a relaxing, enjoyable time and get a little spoiled in Victorian Downton Abbey-Style comfort. : )

This was our 6th year staying at the Lovelace Manor. No matter what time of year or how often we stay, Lark and Michael make each visit extra special. From the AMAZING home cooked breakfast, to the luxurious rooms, to the great hospitality we look forward to staying at the Lovelace manor ever year. Lark always provides us with the best tours and spots to go in Lancaster; and every year we do something different!
We would recommend The Lovelace Manor to anyone who is looking for a great peaceful getaway or wants to explore Lancaster. In fact, we now have our friends stay there too!
Enjoy your stay and tell them the Monetti's said hi :)

Room Tip: If you want to take a bath, stay in the Rose room. Its great and spacious! For business travelers...

If we could write reviews for guests, I'd title it AMAZING GUESTS! In the last 6 years you have have visited nine times for a total of 25 nights. And we've absolutely loved having you. It was such a great weekend since everyone here has stayed before. That just makes it so much better. We can't wait until next time!

We stayed at Lovelace Manor Bed & Breakfast a year ago and were so pleased with our initial stay that we returned again this year for another 3 nights. They were the first B&B we ever stayed at, and since then we have stayed at two other top-rated B&B’s, but none can come close to the incomparable Lovelace Manor. Lark and Michael are the most accommodating and cordial Innkeepers you will ever meet. Both times they made our stay with them as comfortable as if we were family. They are very knowledgeable about Amish culture and are always happy to answer questions about Amish life in Lancaster.

Their 18th century Victorian home is beautiful and has all of today’s modern conveniences. The breakfasts they served, in their elegant dining room, are amazing and among the best we have ever eaten. The rooms are air conditioned and very clean, nicely decorated with antiques and the beds and bedding are very comfortable. The Wi-Fi is free, works well and is easy to connect to. Their pet bird, Coco, now has a new outdoor aviary to share with the flock of new doves they added since we were here last. I highly recommend staying at Lovelace Manor for an enjoyable and relaxing stay in Lancaster. It’s easy to see why they were awarded the Trip Advisor 2013 Certificate of Excellence. We rate this B&B ‘EXCELLENT’ - 5 Stars!

Having the four of you return this year, was like seeing old friends or family! We had so much fun with you that it was almost like a vacation for us! We can't tell you how much we appreciate your kind words describing your experience here. And just remember, if you can make it back again, I'll find all kinds of new places for you to discover!!!

My wife and I stayed here for one night and wish we could have stayed longer. Lancaster has a lot to offer both in the town and in the countryside around it. Lark and Michael are friendly, and offered more suggestions of things to do than we could have done in three days. The rooms are spacious, the beds are comfortable, and the breakfast was first rate.

My daughter and I stayed for one night at this beautiful Inn. Lark and Michael were lovely and helpful. They strike the perfect balance of being accommodating hosts while allowing privacy for their guests to enjoy their surroundings. We had our best nights sleep of our entire trip staying here. Breakfast was fresh and plentiful and a relaxing way to begin our day. I'm looking forward to a return trip and a longer stay with my husband.

Lovelace Manor is a bed and breakfast with outstandingly beautiful decor and spacioue bedrooms. From the incredible nine foot tall front doors with etched glass to the multiple crystal chandeliers, we felt like royalty! Lark and Michael were gracious hosts, and delicious cooks. Breakfast was wonderful, from the first course of fruit to the delicious chocolate chip scones. They were so accommodating, serving us early so we could continue on our journey. I highly recommend Lovelace Manor if you need a relaxing place to stay in the Lancaster area.
