Airbnb Lancaster, PA: Best Places to Stay
How could I not love this place? Located in the Historic Downtown area, this Airbnb has tons of history to match the location. It's a former merchant's home that's nearly 150 years old and boasts a lot of character in its period features.
As a lovely contrast to its historical credentials, this vacation rental has plenty of contemporary touches, with mid-century modern furniture, color-popping artworks, and all of the houseplants.
It's def an Instagrammable spot to be your home base in Lancaster.

Worlds away from Downtown Lancaster, you'll find this place: a farmstead that can trace its history all the way back to the 1700s. If that wasn't cool enough, this Airbnb itself is a beautiful little place to stay.
The clean interiors are a well-balanced mix of cool contemporary minimalism and homey, historical touches that help the property's charm shine through.
Though located on an actual farm (home to Aberdeen Angus cows), it still feels private and has some lovely outdoor space to make use of.
Up to 5 guests // 2 bedrooms // 3 beds // 1 baths. Prices from $136 per night. Check pricing and dates here
This smart and polished Airbnb has the best of both worlds—a great location and a cool sense of style. Set in the heart of Downtown Lancaster, it's just steps away from some big attractions in town, such as the historic Lancaster Central Market.
The spaces are minimalist, with a focus on design-led furnishings and white-washed walls, with pops of teal for extra unique appeal.
With a big, comfy double bed, full kitchen, and well-appointed bathroom, there's enough room here for a couple to stay very comfortably.
Up to 2 guests // Studio // 1 beds // 1 baths. Prices from $55 per night. Check pricing and dates here
Vacation rentals in Lancaster don't get much better than this place. Though it's set in a historic home, and period features like huge windows and a fireplace are still very much a part of it, this Airbnb is all about its modern chic aesthetic. Dark greys contrast with whites and neutral color tones for dynamic interiors.
But it's liveable, too: there are huge couches to lounge around on with fluffy cushions, a stylish minimalist kitchen with everything you need, and bright, cozy bedrooms.
Up to 7 guests // 3 bedrooms // 4 beds // 1.5 baths. Prices from $159 per night. Check pricing and dates here
The title says it all, really—this city home is beautiful. Think original (now decorative) fireplace, high ceilings, and hardwood floors.
Even without all the wonderfully restored period features of this 1880s property, it boasts a choice selection of modern furnishings that have turned it into a veritable location for a design magazine shoot.
Plus, this Airbnb is pretty much within walking distance of everything in Lancaster City that you'll want to see. It's a win-win sort of place!
Up to 2 guests // 1 bedrooms // 1 beds // 1 baths. Prices from $110 per night. Check pricing and dates here
One thing that I really love about this cool Airbnb in Lancaster is how the bedroom is such a private room of its own, thanks to the big sliding wooden door. Such a nice touch.
But there's more to it than that, obviously. It has plenty of original features and vintage details, like columns and big windows that let in plenty of light. It also has some beautifully polished modern furnishings.
Add in a very attractive per-night price, and I'm finding it hard not to book this place for myself right now!
Up to 4 guests // 1 bedrooms // 2 beds // 1 baths. Prices from $97 per night. Check pricing and dates here
This place could be my absolute favorite. Like, why even bother looking at hotels in Lancaster? You may not get the full run of an entire house here—it's a flat—but it's stunning enough just as it is.
It's all about vintage chic. The decor has been very carefully curated, with walls painted two different colors and a selection of eclectic and well thought out furnishings throughout. There's even a private bath to have a soak in.
As a bonus, the host is super friendly, too.
Up to 2 guests // 1 bedrooms // 1 beds // 1 baths. Prices from $109 per night. Check pricing and dates here
This place may not be the urban carriage house you were thinking of, but it's still a total charmer. From the outside, it looks like a historic, rustic sort of place, but inside, it's a whole other ball game.
The interiors are super chic, and it seems to have been put together with the utmost care. There are houseplants, wood floors, boutique furniture, color pops, and a laid-back sense of minimalism.
The double-story deck with a view is particularly awesome: one floor boasts a grill and seating area; on the other, you'll find a hot tub!
