Lancaster farmhouse description

Go to rates for 2 to 7 night stays. We are proud to offer you our circa 1850 stone farmhouse. This historic Pennsylvania home has a private setting in the heart of southern Lancaster County's Amish country. In fact, many of the neighboring farms belong to Amish families. It is situated on a immaculate 50 acre working horse farm which offers you the unique ability to experience the tranquility of the country without giving up any of the modern conveniences you rely on. Relax pool side while watching peacefully grazing horses at pasture or listening to the brisk cadence of Amish buggies rolling by. Enjoy the experience of a leisurely walk through the landscape of the farm where you can glean a true appreciation of authentic country living. This stunning farmhouse boasts many modern conveniences such as 4 large TVs, high-speed Internet, 2 huge master bedrooms with their own private baths, 18 foot shady, screened porch and comfortable furnishings that will assure your enjoyment while also satisfying your desire for the simplicities of country life. The kids (and adults) will love sitting around the fire pit roasting marshmallows. The experiences you enjoy here at Shallowbrook Farm home will be remembered for years to come. You won't want to leave!
