Interaction with Guests
We are a busy family, respecting the privacy of our guests. Becky typically turns in much sooner than Tom. We are open to chatting as our guests are interested. We do a lot of "people" work during the day, so we will tend to leave guests alone.
The West End of Lancaster City is known for a high degree of home ownership, numerous cafes and pubs and easy access to the train station, baseball stadium and parks. Not to mention the best security in the city, served by F&M Police and The Lancaster City Alliance.
We live in a wonderfully walkable neighborhood.
Buses pick up on our corner and taxis are plentiful.
Diagonal parking out front is plentiful, and we also have one off-street spot to offer in a pinch.
Other Things to Note
Breakfast: We do not offer any food, but feel free to bring in anything you need. If we are able, we will offer a cup of coffee or a night-time snack. Just can't make any promises!
Dogs: We have an "invisible" small terrier mix and a rather active Border Collie/Golden Retriever that stay on the first floor or in the back garden. They are friendly and well-trained.
Just leave the room as you found it. Report anything broken.
Feel free to lounge on our porch. The rest of the house is off-limits except for coming-and-going.
Great place, just as described. Tom and his family seem like genuinely nice people, always willing to lend a hand or hang out, but just as happy to let you be. Would definitely stay again.
It is an ideal place to stay if you are traveling alone to Lancaster. The room was cozy and quiet. The hosts are pleasant to communicate with and are very helpful. Parking was convenient. A very good first Airbnb experience overall.
I was absolutely delighted with my (brief) stay at the Beckers. Although I wasn't there much, it could not have felt more like home. The spare room was exactly as described, and I slept very well. Tom was a fabulous, easy-going host, and his Row House Ministry is something you should check out! The location is central to everything in beautiful, downtown Lancaster, and I highly recommend it to any young lady flying solo. Thank you guys for making my first Airbnb experience awesome. I would love to stay again if I am ever back in Lancaster.
The Row House was a great first Airbnb experience! Tom was welcoming, great to communicate with, and flexible when my arrival was delayed. The description of the space was accurate – such a colorful, comfy room. I enjoyed my stay immensely. I hope to return, and highly recommend it to women visiting F&M and Lancaster.
I needed to stay in the area while at F&M. I also didn't have my car with me so I was limited in my options. This house was quite, comfortable and convenient - and you can't beat the price!
Tom seemed like a legitimately good guy.
Great neighborhood, eateries within walking distance and the room was as advertised. I was in town for a conference and so did not have any interactions with my host. An earlier riser I did activate the dog alarms both mornings. Rue and Star are great watch dogs!
I had a wonderful first airbnb experience- Tom and Becky were great hosts! The room was exactly as shown in the pictures and the house is in a great central location. Definitely recommend!!
