Location, location, location! In the heart of downtown, we could walk to central market in less then 10 minuets and are literally on top of super cool shops. The place it self is so well put together, the picture are true and it’s only better in person!

This apartment was very nicely decorated, homey, clean, and much larger than I expected! It has a lot of amenities, like a stereo in the kitchen, a TV in the living room with a DVD player, and a collection of CDs and DVDs. When I stayed, Dennis and Alicia had stocked the apartment with natural and fair trade products (like shampoo) and foods (such as tea, coffee, and bread to toast with butter, local peanut butter and jam). There was a nice selection of kitchen utensils, including vintage tableware, cast iron pans, a drip coffee maker, a moka pot, a tea kettle, and a French press. Dennis and Alicia provide a map of parking options and an extensive list of restaurants in the area. Checking out was easy and flexible. I very much appreciated the attention to detail in all aspects of the apartment; it was one of the best parts of the trip!

Dennis and Alicia's place was so homey and warm! Their love for Lancaster was evident by the "little" things from local businesses. We were so close to everything and I wish we had more time to check out all the shops. Even though it was in the center of Lancaster, we were pleasantly surprised how very quiet it was. The only downfall was the parking. However, since we came on the weekend, it was not too bad and Sundays are free parking. We would definitely come back again.

From the moment we stepped foot into the stairway, we knew that this place was just what we were looking for. Smelling sweet, and charmingly decorated, Dennis & Alicia's place is a retro lover's dream. Their place is centrally located to lots of local restaurants and small shops. We loved their thoughtful amenities and were thrilled at the provided snacks and refreshments. The place was clean as a whistle, it was quiet, and the bed was extremely comfortable. The secluded deck was a lovely too! Although Dennis & Alicia were away for a weekend trip, they were extremely fast at responding to any questions we had, they even let us peruse their hiking book to find a great place to go bird-watching. We will not hesitate to stay at their place again the next time we find ourselves in Lancaster! Thanks guys!

This is a really great place. Love the layout of the apartment and the whimsical decor is lovely. Beds were very comfortable and we appreciated the complimentary snacks provided for breakfast. Although there was a little hiccup with checking-in (we were given an old lockbox code) we would come again.

We loved staying here! Dennis and Alicia were incredibly accommodating: we had a late check in and check out. The apartment is roomy, comfortable, quiet and stocked with almost everything you'd need (shampoo, conditioner, cereal, milk, coffee, fresh bread, local apples etc.) The location is great with cute shops and restaurants right down the street. I couldn't recommend this spot more highly.

This home/vaca spot away offered everything friends or lovers or just you alone could ask of a downtown city spot. Want to return to the simplicity of years gone by???...focus on the decor that Alicia has created in this realm. So clean, subdued, warm, inviting and charming all wrapped up into the best 2 bedroom apartment I've ever encountered. Also includes a kitchen that is totally workable for creating happy meals. Great get away. Thank you Alicia & Dennis
