Our stay with Kieth and Brad was Great. Keith and Brad Told us to make their home, our home away from home. The cozy atmosphere with two fireplaces roaring, with cookies and scones and wine in the living room for all to enjoy. The squeaky staircase up to our room made you feel like you were at your Grandparents house. Our room and private bath was spotless and cozy. Great night sleep, only to be woken up in the morning by the aroma of fresh brewed coffee and scratch made pumpkin muffins winding up the staircase from the kitchen. We enjoyed our gourmet breakfast while having great conversation with Kieth & Brad and other guests of the Lancaster. Our experience ensured a return trip soon. Can't wait for the cooking classes that Brad & Kieth will be offering, soon we hope! Thanks Kieth & Brad for making us feel at home in yours,

Perfect weekend getaway. Our hosts were friendly and attentive. The gourmet breakfast was delicious. The room was comfortable and tastefully decorated. Keith and Brad make you feel at home. This is our second visite there and we look foward to returning many more times. There is plenty of shopping in the area as well as the Amish traditional local shops. Many nice restaurant in the area but too full from breakfast to think about food till evening. They have wifi and satellite tv. They have a very comfortable common area so sit and relax.

This B&B is absolutely fantastic. Brad and Keith couldn't be more welcoming and hospitable innkeepers. Our family had an incredible weekend filled with great food, great conversation, and a welcoming environment that made us feel like we were home with our best friends and family. My son told me that he felt we were treated like "royalty." You are missing out if you stay anywhere else during your trip to Lancaster. We could live there.

Room Tip: The Juniper and Chamomille Suites are ideal for a family of four.

Wow! What a kind and generous review! Thank you so much for YOUR hospitality as guests. It was a real joy having you stay with us. And BRAVO to "the dude" on winning the tournament! He's definitely royalty now! Again, thank you for returning to our take as new owners of the BnB. It would be a pleasure to have you stay with us in the future. Take great care, Keith and Brad

I stayed here for a weekend with my family, and absolutely loved it. The rooms are well done, cozy and spacious(we stayed in the cottage). Brad is an excellent chef and he whipped up a vegan breakfast for my parents, which they loved. The was also excellent conversation around breakfast with the hosts with brad giving us some great cooking tips(he runs a cooking school). The inn is located close to all key attractions in Lancaster and therefore by convenient too. Can't wait to go back!!

It was wonderful to meet you both and your parents! We loved talking with you. I sure hope all is well and back to normal after the hurricane. Please think of us again when you decide to head a little west for some R&R. Thank you so much for staying with us, Keith and Brad.

Again, we love Danes! How come you are all so fun and kind?! Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us, and EXTEND your stay too! Maybe that says something about us as innkeepers, but it sure says ALOT about you, who make it such a pleasant thing to care for our guests! Perhaps we'll see you this way again, or maybe on our first visit to Denmark?? Thank you again, and warm regards to you all, Keith and Brad

My partner and I just got back from a weekend stay today, and had a great time. We have stayed in other B&Bs, and this one was much better than the others. When we checked in, Keith was there to meet us, and took us on a 10 minute tour to acquaint us to the house. The Hawthorne Suite was a very nice size with a walk-in closet and sitting area. We really enjoyed the candy and cookies that were offered throughout the house as well as the little refrigerator stocked with snacks, bottled water, and soda. It was just like being at home when we wanted a quick snack. Each morning, we arrived to breakfast between 9:30 and 10:00, and was greeted by warm and friendly smiles from Keith and Brad. The breakfasts were wonderful!!! The homemade chicken sausage, the quiche, the casserole, and the stuffed french toast were better than you could ever imagine. Keith asked us about dietary restrictions and they remembered them when breakfast was served. Every morning, they took their time to make us feel welcomed by offering suggestions for activities and restaurants, lessons on Amish living, and just regular conversation. The house is located close to downtown (going right) and close to the outlet malls (going left). Some people may have complained about the location, but it is actually located in a great quiet neighborhood. Our suite was facing the major road, and we were never disturbed by the sounds of traffic.

Now that I've focused on all the good, it's time to focus on the not so good...we weren't there long enough...so we will definitely be going back (especially since Brad will be starting cooking classes).

Hi you guys! So sorry for the tardy response! It was a blast talking to you both after breakfasts. I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. We loved meeting you. And so glad you enjoyed the Christmas Museum; I have to get up there and check it out. (We can learn as much about Lancaster from our guests, as they can from us!) Here's to another visit with you in the future! Have a wonderful holiday season, Keith and Brad

We found the Lancaster Bed and Breakfast Inn online. Its current reviews with the new owners, Brad and Keith, seemed very positive. Over the years, we have stayed at quite a few B and B's, many of which were more expensive, and some more beautiful. But none was more enjoyable. The innkeepers' personalities truly enhance the visit. The hosts strive to make your stay very pleasant with their attention to detail. Having the coffee maker and large fresh cookies available in the evening is such a nice touch. The gourmet breakfast was done to a very high standard. At check in, we were asked about our dietary preferences. The inn is on the edge of downtown Lancaster. It is quiet, and only a few minute drive from the hubbub of Route 30. Although we prefer inns over hotels, we are most comfortable in inns that have private baths and a TV in the individual rooms. This inn has both. It was fun (and easy) to have an electric fireplace in our room. We will definitely visit this inn again!
