Other things to note
● The apartment is very close to the center of town and thus central to almost everything.
● Please remember that you will be staying in a home and not a hotel. This is a more personalized, down-to-earth, 🗺️ local and unique experience while a hotel is much more cookie-cutter and less adventurous.
Please remember that you will be staying in a home and not a hotel. This is a more personalized, down-to-earth, 🗺️ local and unique experience while a hotel is much more cookie-cutter and less adventurous.
● Please know that the space is in a small city rich with culture, diversity and activity AND not in a tranquil, secluded and remote backwoods, or countryside.
● There is FREE PARKING on the street and usually space to park close by. PLUS there are a few parking garages 🅿️ within 0.3 miles (0.5 km).
● The walls are not 100% sound proof. We are mindful of the noise level and kindly ask our guests to do the same. Typically no big deal but something to be mindful of.
● The space is in an apartment building. We live in an adjoining apartment.
● The kitchen is fully equipped but it is compact. That means a mini fridge, small toaster oven, hot plate for cooking, etc.

Q: Is it near public transportation?
A: Yes there is Uber & Lyft as mentioned. Plus the city buses stop right at the front door. Besides you can walk to almost anything as Lancaster is an extremely walkable city.

Q: Do I need to bring linens, towels, or a hair dryer?
A: Nope! This is all provided.

Q: Is everything I need within walking distance?
A: Yes! There is a grocery store, a laundromat, a restaurant, a barber and much more within a 5 min walk.

Q: When can I check in or check out?
A: Standard checkin is between 3:00pm and 10:00pm and standard checkout before 11:00am.
► We kindly ask that you check in before 10:00pm in the rare case that you would have any glitches with the checkin process AND have it resolved before bedtime. We want you to have a great stay and would hate for a late night hang up to mess that up. 😉
► NONETHELESS we do make exceptions to standard checkin and checkout times. If you need an exception, please communicate and make the necessary arrangements beforehand.
► We are more than happy to accomodate early checkin and late checkout. We do ask you to cover the cost of rearranging schedules and expediting the cleaning. The cost is:

→ $20 for an additional 2 hours
→ $25 for an additional 3 hours
→ $$ for one night's accomodations over 3 hours
NOTE: Early checkin and late checkout is subject to approval and availability.

Q: Can I bring extra people not accounted for on the reservation?
A: Yes, but we require it to be arranged beforehand and reimbursement be made of ~$20 / guest / night or day. ( Note though that the listing price is set to change after a certain number of guests only. This will be honored with extra guests. But we still ask for the guest count to be accurate and payment to be made in accordance to the listing settings.) Even if it is for only a short visit and not for the night, each guest needs to be accounted for.

Q: Do you provide self-checkin?
A: Yes. Access instructions are emailed to you shortly after your booking is confirmed.

Q: Can I come and go as I please during my stay?
A: Yes! All you need is the access code and you can come and go at will.

Q: Can previous or future guests access the space while I am there?
A: No, not if you keep the door locked. The code is personalized and timed to each reservation. That means your code is unique to you and no other guest has it. That also means that a previous guest's code has been deactivated and a future guest's code has not yet been activated at the time of your stay. They will not be able to enter.

Q: Is the neighorhood safe?
A: Very much so. We live in an adjoining apartment and are quite comfortable with the neighborhood.

My wife and I love creating stellar spaces & experiences that you won’t “un-remember”. Yes I made that word up! :) One of the most rewarding guests we have hosted was Sariati who is originally from SE Asia. She says, “Elam and family’s place is immaculate and spotless. I feel home. Coincidently, he speaks my language so :-) Everything is charming and this Airbnb is a gem of Lancaster hospitality that anyone want to stay. Thanks Elam and Francesca !!!” This was rewarding because we had the opportunity to interact with a culture other than our own (Between my wife and I, we have been to ~30 countries). We also have a significant concentration of Linguistics and Culture in our college studies. This guest was also rewarding because she recognized our desire to be hospitable. My wife’s family is constantly serving others. They love it. I grew up Amish and hospitality is a strong cultural value. My wife and I are a team. She is an amazing business partner. She has taught me a lot about creating lasting memories. We both love creating these memories with people and in the context of people / cultures other than our own. Feel free to ask about our purpose for and experience in living abroad.
