My husband and I recently stayed at the EJ Bowman house for two nights during our weekend getaway to Lancaster. I was a bit skeptical when I saw how great the reviews were for a B&B with such a reasonable price, but everything far exceeded my expectations. The location is central to several nearby towns so there is plenty to do. The hosts were incredibly welcoming and provided small touches (such as beverages and snacks) that made you feel right at home. We have stayed at several B&Bs during our travels, and the Bowman house was by far one of the best! In the few days that we have been home, I have already recommended it to several friends. We will be back for sure!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We really enjoyed meeting you both, and thoroughly enjoyed listening to your travels for such a young couple. It's always nice when guests of all ages come together for breakfast and talk as if they have been friends for years. Thanks again for the review!

My husband and I visit Lancaster on occasion and we like to try out new B&B's when we go. Well no more searching. When we go back next time we will definitely choose the EJ Bowman House again. The location is perfect, close to Amish country and close to downtown Lancaster. The B&B itself is beautiful; the pictures online don't do it justice. Our room was very comfortable and we enjoyed spending time in the common areas of the home as well. We had gourmet breakfasts both mornings we were there. And our hosts couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Spending time with Scott and Diane was a real treat. They take excellent care of their home and their guests and you leave feeling that have you have made new friends. We hope to be back soon!

Thank you for the review, and we look forward to seeing you again soon. We are glad that the house is more impressive in person than online and that you felt very comfortable with us. Also the gardens are beautiful in the summer, and a cool drink by the fish pond goes a long way....until then.

Comfortable room; tasty breakfast; and very nice hosts -- they were friendly and helpful, but not overbearing like you find at some B&Bs. Also, the place is convenient to both Lancaster (ask for the back way; it's a faster, easier drive) and also Lititz, one of the coolest small towns in America.

Our family of four from California Bay Area visited Lancaster county attracted by Amish way of life nearby. We chose this B&B based on the excellent review here. Scott gave us an interesting history of the house and then we are shown to the top floor Bowman suite. I was so delighted to see the suite looks even more elegant and romantic than the photos shown here, with the gas fireplace and heated floor in the master bath. The second day we were treated a lavish three course breakfast with locally produced olive oil carefully prepared by Diane. This is definitely a highlight of our entire trip. Even my 10 year old son wrote down "my best hotel stay ever!" in the guest journal. I really appreciate Scott and Diane taking great care of their guests, and we thoroughly enjoy the stay here. en I am sure we will be back next time.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us. It was wonderful to meet your family, and we are very happy that you chose to stay with us. One day is certainly not anywhere near enough to take in all that Lancaster county has to offer, so we will look forward to seeing you again in the future.

Scott and Diane are wonderful and the B & B is beautiful! I took my fiancé here for his birthday and everything was great. The fact that Diane and Scott utilize items from local businesses is an awesome idea, and a great way to keep the community thriving. The room was amazing and spacious with a beautiful bathroom, and breakfast was wonderful. Brent and I are so glad that we were able to find this Lancaster area gem. We almost want to keep it all to ourselves, but know that wouldn't be fair for business! We will be sure to recommend you guys to anyone heading to the Lititz area in the future. We will be back! *clink* Thanks for everything!
