Lancaster cottage description

Go to rates for 2+ night rents. This adorable country cottage was totally refurbished in April, 2013 with new furnishings, new baths, fresh paint, and central air. We are delighted to have you experience this charming cottage nestled on our historic 50 acre farmstead. This fully restored Pennsylvania cottage enjoys 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 an immaculate 50 acre working horse farm and offers you the unique ability to experience the tranquility of the country without giving up any of the modern conveniences we all depend upon.

Enjoy your morning coffee or evening beverage in the private screened porch, with a distant view of peacefully grazing horses, while enjoying the subtle sounds of the country. Try your luck at fishing in the state stocked trout stream. Experience tranquility on a leisurely walk through the landscape of our farm where you can glean a true appreciation of authentic country living.

This cottage boasts of many modern conveniences such as 3 large screen plasma TV's, high-speed internet, open country kitchen with dinette, central air, 2 bedrooms, 2 full baths, an office so you can stay in touch with the real world, (if you want to), a 'loft' with queen sleeper sofa and very comfortable upscale furnishings that will assure your enjoyment while also satisfying your desire for the simplicities of country life.

Oh! Don't forget the patio with comfy, deep seating furniture and an awesome FIREPLACE to gather around. We'll supply the firewood and roasting forks - you bring along the hot dogs and marshmallows.

You will have such a wonderful experience, you'll wish you stayed longer!

While Lancaster County is world-renowned for its population of Amish people and it's gorgeous countryside, it also has many other attractions to occupy your time. You will love the wide variety of shopping available, whether it's Outlet stores, antiquing, malls or little roadside shops and craft stores. There's also self-guided tours of our famous covered bridges as well as so much beautiful farm land to drive through. You might enjoy the popular hot air balloon rides for a different perspective of the landscape or even a horse and buggy ride. For the kids, there are a couple much loved amusement parks within an easy drive of the home or would they love getting 'lost' in the corn maze. Try your hand at picking your own peaches, cherries or apples at the nearby orchards. So many things to see and do. Of course, you can stay right at home and enjoy the sights and peacefulness of Shallowbrook Farm.
