We had a wonderful time at EJ Bowman House hosted by Scott and Diane! They were gracious hosts, and we enjoyed chatting with them over delicious breakfasts (morning feasts!). We stayed in the suite on the top floor, which had everything we needed; we loved the gas fireplace, heated bathroom floors, and whirlpool tub. We had never been to the Lancaster area, and they gave us many ideas of places to go, including the best farms, breweries, and restaurants in the surrounding areas. We had planned a couple of places, but their suggestions made the trip so much easier and more fun! We are already planning on going back next year!

We stayed at the EJ Bowman House for one night prior to a visit to Amish Country. Debbie was there to welcome us and check in was very easy. The house was very clean and drinks/snacks were always available. The room was cozy and comfortable. Breakfast was AMAZING!! We very much enjoyed our visit and would definitely return!!

Diane and Scott are super friendly and make their guests welcome immediately upon arrival. Their old home is tastefully decorated with many lovely antiques. All the rooms are beautiful, and there is a common area sitting room and library for anyone to use. The Bowman Suite on the third floor is especially nice and includes a jacuzzi tub in the bathroom, a king bed, and a separate sitting room. Diane serves delicious breakfast meals and each day brings a new dish to the breakfast table. The location is close to many of the attractions in Lancaster and also to the shopping street in Lititz, PA, just a few minutes north. We stayed for five nights this trip and found interesting places to see every day. A special attraction to take in while in the area is the Sight and Sound theater, where the musicals showcase extremely talented actors and singers, and the productions are breathtaking. When you leave EJ Bowman House you feel like you are leaving old friends, and look forward to a return trip.

My husband and I just returned from a 5-night stay at the historic E. J. Bowman House. The owners, Diane and Scott, welcomed us into this stately 1860's home located just north of Lancaster and only a few miles south of Lititz. The rooms are spacious, quiet and very comfortable for anyone wanting the perfect experience staying in a B&B. The dining room seats 12 for the exceptional breakfast Diane prepares each morning. Every morning we would watch and be amazed as breakfast was served. The B&B offers a separate kitchenette for coffee, teas, and hot chocolate, as well as a mini-fridge, free snacks and homemade chocolate chip cookies for the taking. The parlor, with its 1890 pump organ, seats up to six comfortably, as does the library/TV room. There is a lovely garden out back with a water feature and patio furniture. Everything about this B&B met our expectations and more, honestly. Betty D from the Texas Hill Country

The owners obviously put a LOT of work into the rooms, grounds, and food to make it a truly special experience for their guests. Really make everyone feel welcome. The gardens in the back were a very nice place to relax, and the whole place is just immaculate. The location was also very well-placed with regard to local attractions.
