My husband and I stayed at the Walkabout Inn to celebrate our one year wedding anniversary. We stayed in the Outback Cottage which was just perfect! Beautifully decorated and very intimate, the cottage was private and cozy. The hot tub was our favorite thing about the room! The room also had free Wi-Fi, and a mini fridge with freezer. You could really tell that the owners take a great deal of care to make sure every guest's stay is comfortable. We also loved the breakfast; it was by far the best we've ever had! We would definitely stay here again, and we would also highly recommend this wonderful bed & breakfast.

This was a wonderful way to share time with friends. Lynne and Bob welcomed us and shared their beautiful inn with warmth and kindness as if we were right at home. The rooms were clean and tidy as well as beautifully decorated. It was so easy to sleep peacefully on the extra soft sheets and quiet room. There was so much to do around the area including shopping for everyone and theather experiences. Lynne and Bob directed us with ease to a terrific day! Breakfast was fantastic! Lynne added special touches that made us feel like we were so important. I would gladly go back, not only with my friends but with my husband for a romantic getaway or my family for a weekend trip!

Room Tip: All rooms are unique. Call to find out which one would fit your needs best.

My experience at the Australian Walkabout was wonderful, restful and relaxing. When we got to the Inn there were guests on the front porch swing which instantly made you feel welcome. The owners Bob and Lynne were very accommodating with everything from shopping suggestions to dinner suggestions. The breakfasts were amazing, so healthy, tasty and filling. Our girls time was made even more special by the time we spent talking in our beautiful and spacious rooms. The cleanliness of the rooms was amazing but to get a phone call within 30 minutes from Lynne that I left a gold ring in the room amazed me, she was already cleaning our rooms. Not only have we planned a return trip for next year but I hope to make a trip with my husband for a romantic getaway. Thank you

Room Tip: The Outback has a private entrance which would be very nice for honeymooners.

What a wonderful experience. Such a beautiful and comfortable place. I felt at home the moment I walked in the door. The smell of blueberries filled the air. The rooms and beds were very comfortable and the sheets were super soft! Breakfast was nothing less than superb! I spent quality time with dear friends and memories that will last a lifetime! Thank you! Thank you! I will be back to visit!

This was a perfect getaway for myself and four other very dear girlfriends! We wanted to relax and spend some time catching up and Lynne and Bob, the owners, made it wonderful for us. They made us feel so very welcome and attended to every detail. The suite we shared was beautiful and the breakfasts were amazing! We truly enjoyed everything and we hope to make it a yearly visit!

We stayed for a few nights recently while in the Lancaster area and thoroughly enjoyed this B&B and the friendly and helpful hosts. It was so pleasant to enjoy a wonderful breakfast each day and just sit and chat with Lynne about this and that. In spite of the fairly busy street, it was very quiet inside and sleeping was easy in our spacious room. We do hope the cat came back....sorry he got out on our watch!

Thank you for taking a few moments to share your experience at our Inn. So glad you found the place to be restful and that you enjoyed your time here. We hope to have you back soon.

No worries about the cat. He was back in a short time. We usually do not allow him out into the guest areas, but he happened to be in the right place at the right time to get past us. It rarely happens. He's a friendly fellow and enjoys the guests, but we prefer to keep him in our quarters so as not to disturb anyone who doesn't like cats.
