Our cozy yet spacious guest house is located in the heart of Downtown Lancaster's popular destinations. We are a lovely stroll from Central Market, Fulton Opera House, F&M College, the Ware Center, plus many eclectic shops & restaurants.
Come share with us in Lancaster's exciting renaissance!
Our guest house is a recently renovated private apartment located on the second floor of a wonderful 130 year-old brick building. We have preserved the high ceilings and original light fixtures while adding innovative additions. We love our building and hope to share it with you.
We are conveniently located near the local bus station, as well as the Amtrak Station and Greyhound Bus Station. Lancaster City is also nestled among many rolling acres of Amish farm country.

Dennis and Alicia are wonderful, and this apartment is amazing. it is decorated in the most interesting way with antique/vintage furniture and art. Every detail in every room is considered, which made for an interesting and enjoyable stay. I highly recommend this apartment to anyone who is staying in the area.
My husband and I LOVED staying at Dennis & Alicia's charming guest apartment. It was warm, and cute, and comfortable. We'll definitely be staying there again, next time we're in Lancaster.
A very comfortable home-base for an event at the conversion center three blocks away. Dennis and Alicia have a great place and their care for it shows. We will look to repeat this trip in the future to take in more of the great shops and restaurants in the area. All within walking distance.
Wow! This apartment was perfect in every way. Dennis and Alicia are great, thoughtful hosts. Communication was clear and easy, something I always appreciate. I hope to make a standing reservation every year at this time. And Downtown Lancaster was cool and hip. We could walk everywhere, food was great, shopping was fun. Perfect location, perfect apartment and gracious hosts.
Oh gosh, where to start? Alicia and Dennis' Downtown Guest House is more than charming. It's perfect! My Mom and I stayed there while attending the AQS Quilt Show at the Convention Center. We could not have had a better location just 5 short blocks to the show. Alicia is clearly an artist with an artist's eye because the apartment is decorated in perfect retro style and there are little visual surprises everywhere. It's very clean, very comfortable and has every modern necessity. This is one of those places that you don't want to tell people about because it might not be available the next time you want to visit.
Dennis and Alicia were wonderful hosts! They were so nice and thoughtful that you felt welcomed in every way at their house. The charming guesthouse is more than charming. It is very beautiful!!! In general, it was a perfect stay, and Lancaster was a nice little city. I would love to come to visit again!!!
Very pleasant stay and a beautifully designed apartment.
Our host even left us fruit and chocolates to enjoy during our stay! The apartment was clean and tidy, with great access to lots of nearby coffee shops and restaurants.
We love: our family, good food, cats, great movies, wine, books, vintage & antiques everything, traveling, the arts, music, Lancaster, chocolate, romance, coffee, meals on the patio, cooking, baking, dinner parties with friends & campfires.
Welcome to our world!
