“Last Minute visit turned out great in a wonderful B&B”
Reviewed 12 July 2012

We made last minute plans for visiting the Lancaster PA area. We had not really done 'our homework', but Keith and Brad gave us wonderful tips on where to go and what to see (and avoid!). We have stayed in B&B's many times and this was one of our best experiences. The breakfasts were terrific. We stayed in their smallest (and least expensive) room and it was just fine. We had wine each evening on the outside proch and were provided with 'real' wine glasses and fun chats with both Brad and Keith. Would highly recommend this place!

This was our first trip to Lancaster, we had the most wonderful time staying with Brad and Keith at their B&B, Brad's knowledge about the surrounding area and his story telling were so interesting and funny, and his gourmet cooking, was the most delicious breakfast I've had in a long time. Keith and his decorating skills for the common areas have made it a very cozy, comfortable and inviting environment. They are the most gracious hosts and we plan to visit them again, it being a 1st time for me staying in a B&B, the experience couldn't have been more wonderful!! Ximena from Bedford, New York

We have been visiting the O'Flaherty's Dingeldein House bed and breakfast for over seven years. Brad and Keith are our third owners for the property. They have the gift of hospitality needed to be bed and breakfast owners. Keith has used his decorator touch already in several of the common areas. Keith also it bringing the bed and breakfast into the techno age with new Wi-Fi, a blog, face book and twitter. (Sorry I’m not into anything but email but it will be great.) Now the breakfasts, they were incredible. The egg strata with fresh peas and asparagus was delicious accompanied by a fresh strawberry salad and the other surprise was a fruit smoothie that was perfect. The French toast the second day stuffed with cream cheese and raisins with berry compote was also wonderful. Brad makes his own fresh turkey sausage also.

Keith and Brad are new to the area from California but had already shared a few new restaurants we haven’t tried in the area. Also, if you enjoy theater, movies, decorating, cooking or television both Keith and Brad have wonderful stories to share. We are already checking out the Fulton theater’s season for another visit soon. Welcome to Lancaster Brad and Keith!!

Room Tip: We like the Foxglove room which is one the third floor. It is probably not the most quiet being on...

We stayed in October of '10, and had a fantastic time. We were celebrating our "babymoon" and Gerry and Dave were fantastic hosts. They had wonderful advice for the area and were very friendly. Room was great, breakfast was FANTASTIC. I would definitely recommend this to friends, family, or strangers. 5 stars all the way!

We stayed 4 nights at the B & B. Each day brought a delicious new gourmet breakfast from Gerry, new conversation with fellow guests, and plenty of Daves fabulous Colombian coffee.

Very clean and tidy environment with charming grounds

Dave and Gerry have worked hard to anticipate in advance what we travellers are looking for and to provide for these needs in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

I would recommend this B & B to any other travelling couples, small families, or solos without hesitation

My first stay at a B & B was a great experience.
The innkeepers Dave and Gerry are very friendly.
The house is well kept, clean and cozy.
I was solo, so I chose the Princess Room, it is on the third floor.
The room is decorated so beautiful, it was just so cute.
The breakfast was delicious.
I recommend this B & B to anyone visiting the Lancaster area.

I would recommend it to anybody! Our room was one of the smallest, (I believe it was the Princess room), but beautiful and cozy. Bathroom was spotless and fully loaded with towels, soaps, conditioner, washcloth etc. I was not so impressed with a breakfast, but their collection of teas, available for guest 24/4 is amazing! Host is willing to explore u the area and will even provide you the map of the Lancaster.
