Strasburg farmhouse description

Make your vacation or visit to Lancaster County a truly unique experience by staying in a restored 18th Century farmhouse!

The Homeplace at Trailcrest Farm is located on a quiet country road less than a mile from Strasburg's Historic District. This charming colonial farmhouse has been in our family for generations and is now available to you as your home away from home. It's like having your own exclusive house in the country for the weekend, half a week or longer for much less than the price of a fancy hotel!

Watch our cows graze in the meadow as you drink your morning coffee. Listen to the songbirds and watch the horse and buggies drive by as you relax in a rocking chair on the front porch. Bring your bicycles to explore our scenic country roads. Take an evening stroll and stop to chat with our friendly Amish neighbors. Safe neighborhood. Fenced in yard. Jungle gym. Clean and cozy. Continental breakfast provided for your first day.

Perfect for individuals, couples, families, business travel, and personal or Christian retreats.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: Hello and thank you for considering a stay at The Homeplace at Trailcrest Farm. My name is Edie Landis. I am a happily married, busy mother of 4 (center in pic) who loves to write and garden and raise a small flock of chickens in my backyard. Several years ago, my husband inherited the old farmstead he grew up. What do you do with a second home? We renovated and upgraded it and turned it into a home-away-from-home for visitors to Lancaster County, PA. The clean and quaint farmhouse has been welcoming travelers since 2003. Be sure to visit my website (link above) for more photos and information. I look forward to hearing from you.

              Why the Owner Chose Strasburg:
              We rent the farmhouse out to visitors for two reasons: First we want to bless our guests with a calming, refreshing visit and second, we're trying to preserve the farm for our children to inherit when they're grown. Your business helps support family farming.

              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
              + Bring young children back to a quiet, restful place for their afternoon nap. + No worrying about noisy neighbors (or that you or your children will disturb others.) + Amish neighbors. + Strasburg is right in the heart of a majority of Lancaster County attractions. + Quiet, safe neighborhood. (Some neighbors are family, the rest are Amish &/or long-time residents.) + Plenty of room for outdoor play. Fenced in yard. Jungle gym. + Some farming, depending on time of year. + From porch, sunroom, deck or fenced-in yard you can watch the cows graze, variety of birds, or Amish walking by or riding their horse and buggies. +Farm fresh eggs available upon request. *Gifts Certificates available. *Reduced Rates from Fall through Spring. See main page for actual rates. *Mastercard, Visa and Discover accepted.
