Lancaster farmhouse description

Welcome to The Landyshade Farm House,
we hope that you will enjoy your stay here with us.This timeless, grand farmhouse will be exclusively yours during your visit. The Landyshade Farm House offers a distinctive and spacious home for you to enjoy. We are located in the heart of the Pennsylvania Dutch Country, where there are so many wonderful attractions to keep you coming back to enjoy them all. We are able to accommodate small or large groups. Whether you are planning a romantic getaway, a family vacation, reunion, business meeting, church retreat, desire a farm experience, a country holiday, or a special place to stay near historic Lancaster, we can help. The Landyshade Farm House is open year-round and each group is given personal attention. The Landyshade Farm House is a lovely farmhouse that sleeps up to 12 people. Additional guests can be accommodated up to 18 people.  Our historic farmhouse dates back to the 1700's and which was deeded by William Penn's son,  has been recently remodeled and has 5 large and spacious bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths. With 2 large living room areas. The Landyshade Farm House is located on a modern working dairy farm. We offer scheduled tours of our farm. Watch the milking process and as the cows are being fed. See the calves on the farm and maybe get a chance to help feed one. If your lucky you might even get to see a calf being born. Learn about some of the modern ways we conserve our energy on the farm. While here you can sit on the front porch and watch the farmers in the field, or as we load and unload mulch in our mulch yard, or go for a relaxing stroll through the orchard area or sit and relax watching the kids play on the play ground or with our family dog, Sheba. There are many Amish farms in our area and the Amish tourist areas are close by, with quick access to Route 283. We are close to beautiful shopping malls, and outlets, grocery stores, and pleasing restaurants.

                  Year Purchased: 1975

                  About: John and Doris Landis started here after buying the family farm from John's father in the 70's. With the help of their son, John Jr. and several employees they have continued to maintain and grow their farm. In 1983 they began their mulch landscaping business that is now known as Landyshade Mulch. Their mulch business grew quickly and is known all over Lancaster County now.

                  Why Lancaster:
                  John and Doris have raised their family in this house and have recently moved off the farm. With the recent remodeling of their home they have opened it up to you. Our home is located with easy access to the Lancaster County Amish attractions.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                  While your here sit back and relax on the porch or balcony, or play with the kids in the playground. Take a walk through the orchard or just sit and enjoy the beautiful sunsets that we get to enjoy daily. We are centrally located to enjoy Hershey Park and the delicious chocolate attractions of Hershey PA and minutes away from Lancaster City and the Amish tourist attractions. While here you can have a scheduled tour of our farm. Enjoy learning about the milking process, maybe get a peek at us milking, see the calves on our farm and maybe get a chance to see a baby being born. Learn some of the modern ways we are conserving our energy and resources.
