Part of the the charm of our 100+ year old house is the Third Floor Bedroom En Suite. This is a private third floor suite with a full bedroom, dressing room and spare bed. It's an all inclusive space with private bath, mini fridge, coffee maker, and microwave.

The space

The Third Floor Master Bedroom En Suite includes a large master bedroom with queen bed. A/C and radiator heat help cool in the summer and provide a cozy space in the winter. There is ample room for two in the master and an extra person in the tuck-away space. (Please, no children under 12).

Guests are welcome to relax on the 1st floor front porch. When available, there is also a 2nd floor porch overlooking a private garden and carriage house -- a great place to relax, read, or enjoy the birds in our back yard.

Guest access

Guests have use of the entire third floor.

Interaction with guests

We will answer questions about events, places to eat, and other questions about the area.

Other things to note

We are located in the city, about a mile from the downtown area and many great restaurants and shopping. Franklin & Marshall college is just a couple of blocks away as well as Buchanan Park.

What a gem! Bobbie and Tom were just the most gracious hosts. We loved staying in their 3rd floor suite. It was furnished with everything you would need - from area brochures, a coffee maker to even a little refrigerator that was stocked with water, yogurt and fruit cups. Best of all were the yummy breakfasts (waffles, yogurt, fruit, fritatta) Bobbie made. It was the perfect location within walking distance of town and parking was no problem at all. We took several day-trips to Hershey and some surrounding areas which were just 1 1/2 hours away. This is the place to stay in Lancaster.

Bobbie and her husband were wonderful hosts, informative, and gracious. The third floor suite was very private, clean, and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

If you're in town, this is a great place to stay and Central to all. Had a wonderful anniversary weekend. The 3rd floor suite was classic and beautifully kept. Not handicap accessible, but everything else is great. If you love old houses that are kept with original woodwork (as we do) this is one. :)

My husband David and I and our 15-year-old grandson were very pleased with our two-night stay at this Airbnb. The accommodations were clean and more than adequate and the two breakfasts were delicious. Not being fond of air conditioning, David and I were pleased that our second floor room had a little porch, and we were able to leave open the door to the porch throughout the night and thus enjoy the fresh air plus the ceiling fan. Following our second night, we had to leave by 7:00 a.m. Our hosts, Tom and Bobbie, cheerfully agreed to serve our breakfast at 6:15 a.m. We expressed concern that we might not wake up at 5:00 a.m., and Tom offered to knock on our door at that time. This enabled us to sleep soundly, which we really appreciated. We highly recommend this Airbnb and hope to have an opportunity to stay there again in the future.

I only stayed at Bobbie's for one night for a quick weekend getaway in Lancaster, but I could easily have imagined staying for longer. The third floor suite is extremely comfortable and private and the location is perfect - it's a quiet and residential street but very easy to walk downtown to enjoy the nightlife and dining. Everything about booking and checking in was easy and Bobbie was there to greet us the moment we walked onto the porch. Bobbie provided a lot of brochures and information about the area that I would have liked to have taken advantage of if I had been visiting longer. I highly recommend and would want to stay here again!

Great location for a wedding we attended in downtown Lancaster. Woke up the next morning and enjoyed brunch a half mile away. Place was clean, check in was easy. Bobbie was great to communicate with and we enjoyed the snacks and water in our room. Especially liked the private bathroom, a rare find for a private room. Thank you for a lovely experience! Willcisi definitely visit again if we're in the area.
