Property description

Beautiful country setting on 10 acres down a quarter mile lane with no visible neighbors! The property is surrounded by farm fields and forest. The house is a restored 200+ year old stone farmhouse with original random-width hardwood floors throughout. Master bedroom has a queen bed, second bedroom has a queen-size bed, third bedroom has a full/double-size bed and a full-size crib, and the fourth bedroom has twin-size bunk beds.
Perfect for a quiet romantic get away or a fun family vacation where the kids can run and play outside with no danger of passing cars. Enough space for a wedding or a family reunion out on the lawn!
Great location close to Lancaster County/Amish attractions, Dutch Wonderland, outlet shopping, 20+ museums, hot-air balloon rides, Strasburg Railroad and the list goes on.


Need a break from your busy life?: Find yourself listening to the birds and the crickets as you relax in a rocking chair on the front porch overlooking an expanse of green lawn and trees.
No neighbors, no buildings, no traffic - just peace and quiet for you to savor.

Lancaster County Amish Country: Perfect location to check out all the local Amish attractions and enjoy the drive through the rolling farmland to get there! The property is very private, yet is only 15 minutes from the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Shop local businesses selling quilts, antiques, hand-made furniture and countless farm stands to get all the fresh produce you can eat!
30 minutes to Dutch Wonderland, Lancaster Outlet Shopping, American Music Theatre, Sight & Sound Theatre, Strasburg Railroad, Reading Outlet Shopping and so much more.
1 hour, 15 minutes to Hershey Park and Chocolate World.
1 hour to Philadelphia.

Two parks within two minutes of the property: Historic Poole Forge is a township owned park with a great children's playground, pavilion and picnic benches for a cookout, and a 150 year old historic covered bridge that you can drive though and is great for photos with you and your family!
Just up the hill from our home is a county owned park called Money Rocks that has an easy 30-minute hike to the top of the mountain for a gorgeous view of the scenic countryside.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: I grew up in Lancaster County and in this house! I moved away after college and getting married, but returned to the area after having children and spent a year restoring the farmhouse. My husband and I like to restore old homes and we are currently working on a historic inn in Churchtown, PA.

Why the Owner Chose Lancaster:
I grew up in this house and we bought it from my parents and restored it. We lived in it for a few years before deciding to rent it out as a vacation rental because we loved the property and house and didn't want to sell it. The only reason we moved out is because we bought another 200+ year old stone home just five minutes away that we are currently restoring. The area is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet of the countryside, strolling through local parks, watching horse and buggies go by, visiting the numerous historic districts, museums and various Amish and Pennsylvania Dutch attractions in Lancaster County. The property itself is the perfect getaway from hectic lives - you might not want to leave!
