NEARLY NEW Home - built' Green' in 2000. Our large (4424 sq. ft.) beautiful, comfortable home is great for your extended family to get together, the wedding party and out of town guests, scrapbooking groups, corporate or church retreats, or just a bunch of friends. We've just completed a 20' gazebo, w/picnic/campfire area. and level space for a 40'x 60' tent.
There are thousands of things to see and do within 30 minutes. The property is more than an acre, with lots of yard (soft grass) for children to run and play, and woods to explore. Many flowers are growing around the house, which is several hundred yards from the quiet street. The pool (150' from the house) is wonderful for refreshing relaxation.
There is a large living room (13'x 23'), dining room (12'x 16'), and family room (16'x 19').The kitchen (16' x 16') has lots of cabinet/counter space, including a breakfast bar. Included are all the appliances, dishes, glasses, pots & pans, and basic seasonings, sugar, flour, coffee, etc. you'll likly need. A large window over the sink acts as a pass thru to the screened porch(16'x 31') where you'll want to eat most meals during the summer/fall. The bedrooms are all spacious, with large windows that open (with screens) to let the fresh breezes thru. You can safely sleep with windows and doors open. The huge master suite has it all - 2 person whirlpool tub and 2 person shower, double sinks, 3 sided gas fireplace, and fantastic views. The 2nd bath on the 2nd floor also has a 6' WP tub. The ground floor bedroom (15'x 24')& bath has a 4'x 4' shower. In winter the floor is heated.
Some toys and games are provided.
We'll supply the ingredients for breakfast your 1st morning here.
There's a 24 hr. grocery store (WalMart) 2 miles away.
SO PACK YOUR CLOTHES and COME TO THE COUNTRY!

Family Reunion in the Pa Vacation Home
Family Reunion in the Pa Vacation Home
The spacious livingrooms, dining room and kitchen (with endless cabinet space) are most suitable for a family reunion or large gathering. The bedrooms are comfortable and most rooms have large window areas that offer abundant light and good views into the scenic valley. There is a well equipped utility room and a big extra refrigerator in the garage. The furnishings and the kitchen equipment in general are adequate but not fancy or well matched. The large diningroom was useful for our large group. The linen sets included plenty of towels. Because the house is built into a hill, the stairs inside and outside are somewhat steep, especially for elderly people. The pool house contains a combination bedroom, kitchen, shower and toilet and is available as an additional bedroom to the house if desired. The room rate charge is the same as the bedrooms in the main house, which is unjustified, as the room is small with only a sofa-bed and minimum comforts . Overall we would recommend this house for its amenities and its location in the middle of Amish country.

Owner response: I'm glad your family enjoyed your time in Pa. The outside stairs from the deck are steep, but don't need to be used. You can drive up to the main entrance & garage, with only a 3" step into the house. Inside, the second stairs to the rear bedroom are steep, but can be avoided by using the main stairs. Yes, the Pool House is small, and a bit rustic. It's also clean, safe, quiet, with a comfortable bed, your own bathroom, and heat or AC. You could have used 1 of the 2 living rooms as a bedroom, with a queen sofa bed, and bath nearby, but insisted on using the pool house to sleep in, even tho we did NOT charge you for it. We'll continue to work hard to provide a wonderful place for you to stay when away from home. Bonnie
We had our entire family including 4 grandchildren age 4 and under staying with us and the house worked perfectly for all of our needs. It was close to all the attractions for the children. The property was clean and the owner was very helpful. We might even return next year since there are so many attractions for the grandchildren nearby. We would recommend this place.

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: I am a semi-retired builder, and my husband is a plumbing supervisor. We built this house ourselves after marrying in 1999.
Why the Owner Chose Ephrata:
I've lived on this street since 1980, and can't find a nicer place to live. We're happy to share with others looking for a great vacation.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Peace - the loudest sounds are usually the birds singing in the trees. Convenience- near highways, shopping, theater, schools, hospital, town, tourist attractions, and yet secluded in the woods. We're surrounded by over 300 acres of forest - Boro owned, go hiking. Safety - You can go for a walk anytime, leave the car unlocked Comfort - the summer temperature is usually 5 degrees cooler here on the mountain top. The winter is usually a little warmer - winds are blocked by trees .
