“Gorgeous House”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

My 7 year-old son and I spent a night at The Australian Walkabout as we passed through Lancaster last week. The house is absolutely gorgeous, and they have done a great job lovingly restoring and maintaining it. We loved their movie library, and Lynne was very attentive.

My wife and I stayed here one night last summer. It was a great experience, and the hosts were very accommodating to us. The room was very clean, with a unique taste of Australia and the breakfast was also delicious.

We loved out time at the Walkabout! Bob and Lynne took good care of us on our stay. Our massage therapists were great, Lynne offered suggestions about dining and local sites of interest, and Bob prepared an amazing fritatta for breakfast. We look forward to staying at the Australian Walkabout again soon.

Room Tip: The Barosa Suite is a great room, but has a bit of road noise.

My husband and I stayed at the Australian Walkabout Inn for our "Babymoon". The inn was clean and cozy! I recommend the package that offers the couples massage. The massage therapists came to the inn and were wonderful. We stayed in the Barossa Suite which was spacious, quiet and comfortable.

Room Tip: Barossa Suite had a jacuzzi tub and was comfortable.

This was an awesome experience and a wonderful place. It was our first time at a bed and breakfast so we weren't sure what to expect but it was better than we could have ever imagined. We will go back again whenever we get up to the Lancaster area.

My partner and I went up to Lancaster this past weekend and stayed at the Australian Walkabout Inn. It was the first time my partner had stayed at a B&B, and she had a great experience there. We stayed in the Barossa room. The room was wonderful. The bed was very comfortable and the room also had a whirlpool tub, which was nice and relaxing. The room was very clean and overall the whole place was very well maintained. Lynn and Bob were great hosts, very hospitable, and accommodating. The breakfasts were outstanding. There really is nothing that I could say bad about our stay. I would highly recommend this Inn to anyone staying in Lancaster.

My partner and I decided to celebrate our one year anniversary on Dec 15th by taking a trip to Lancaster, PA. I chose this B&B because of its name, as I have travelled to Australia twice. Having never been to a B&B before we were warmly greeted by Lynn upon our arrival. She made us feel very welcomed from the moment we arrived. We were able to take tour of the place and we stayed in the Adelaide Hills Suite, which was spacious and very comfortable. The breakfasts were great as was the conversations with those at our table as well with Lynn and Bob. They told us of the history of the house and all that they have done to keep the house looking as it does today...beautiful and appropriately decorated...especially for the Christmas season. We will be back in early May for a one night stay in a different room! Connie & I would wholeheartedly recommend staying at the Australian Walkabout Inn!
