Stay here if you want to relax, seek walkable accessibility to downtown and an opportunity to swap stories of travels. You can make yourself at home in the kitchen and have the opportunity to hear advice on the city's best spots should you desire.

The Space

The home is across the street from Franklin & Marshall college, mere seconds from a gorgeous park and a brief walk to downtown (about 15 minutes). The guest room is on the second floor, right beside the shared bathroom.
The home is a beautifully renovated house build in 1898. I love my house, I hope you will too!
In addition to the home owner, there are two fun housemates who live on the third floor.

Guest Access

I'll make sure you have some delicious coffee each morning and will do whatever I can to make your stay a Lancaster a successful one. I love giving advice on the best places to eat, drink and see in town, so if you ask, I'll help you as much as I can.

Interaction with Guests

I will typically be around for questions you may have. I will also be quick to answer if you text or call me before or during your stay. I do this because I enjoy meeting the people who stay with me.

The Neighborhood

My house is in a beautiful neighborhood that is easy to get to all the places in Lancaster city that you want to be, but peaceful and quiet when you need a break.
It's perfect for getting out of town, for any F&M College related event or getting downtown effortlessly.

Getting around

There is a bus stop right outside my house. Also, you can get downtown with a 15-20 minute walk.
I also can lend one bike if you are interested.
The train station is also walkable and many guests come in by train or bus.

Other Things to Note

I host on airbnb because I genuinely love getting to know new people and helping you learn about my awesome little city.

  • Laura was a great hostess. She is kind, friendly and simply enjoys knowing the folks that come to her house and hearing their stories. The room and her house is lovely with hardwood floors and the bed was great.The city of Lancaster, Pa. is a very interesting place to visit in this country. All in all, I would highly recommend Laura's place for a truly great airbnb experience.

  • Laura has a really nice home in a quiet picturesque neighborhood within walking distance from the center of Lancaster City. She was a very nice hostess during my overnight stay. I really felt like I was staying with a relative. I told her I would be leaving at 7:45am the next morning and she offered to make me coffee. Fresh ground coffee beans in a French press. Just the way I like it.
    Thanks, Laura. See you next time.

  • Laura was great, she greeted us at the door, gave us a tour of the house, and showed us where to put our luggage. She had a special dinner plan an invited us to participate; we had the best time and I will bring her special dinner layout home to my family.

    We slept great and she had coffee ready for us before we left. I will definitely give her a great review to my friends.

    Thanks for being fun guests who willingly participated in an innocent April Fool's joke with me!

I am a traveler who appreciates the comfort of a cozy place to call home in the midst of wandering the globe. I am quick to smile, enjoy people's stories and love hearing people laugh. Depending on the time of the year, I may be responsible for the well-being of dozens of international teenagers. I love cities and want to travel to everywhere I haven't yet been and go back to every place I've already seen.
