We had a wonderful time with Bobbie and Tom. The space was clean, the bed was comfortable and the people were lovely. Bobbies breakfast was amazing and both of them made us feel extremely welcome.
It was an absolute pleasure staying with Bobbi and Tom for two nights. The bedroom was a lot bigger than we expected and everything was extremely neat and clean. In the mornings we were pleasantly surprised to be serviced a hot breakfast with coffee and tea. We truly felt like we were staying with family for the weekend. I would highly recommend to anyone else in the future. The house is located on a quiet tree lined street and was very convenient to find parking and also visit local eateries and attractions. Staying with Bobbi and Tom truly gave us a great Lancaster experience.
Bobbie and Tom have such a wonderful home. We truly enjoyed our stay. Its very obvious they are well experienced in hosting. Breakfast was delicious!
We felt so welcome and comfortable on our first visit to Lancaster. Delicious breakfasts! and good advice on what to see and do in the area. The front porch was especially lovely with rocking chairs and plants.
My Dad and I stayed at Bobbie's for one night and it was lovely! A hot shower at the end of the day and AC at night was exactly what we needed. Thank you!
My stay with Bobbie and Tom was lovely! I only regret that I didn't get to spend more time at their lovely home, as I was out all day at a conference. The space was private and cozy and the perfect place to rest my head after a very, very long day! I highly recommend.
We had a wonderful stay with Bobbie and Tom in Lancaster. The suite was lovely - well-appointed, clean, airy. We loved exploring Lancaster - there are great restaurants and lots of beautiful, historic buildings. We enjoyed chatting with both Bobbie and Tom, and had a wonderful breakfast before we left. We were sorry we couldn't stay longer and will definitely be back the next time we are in the area!
