Churchtown farmhouse description

Our vacation home is a true Lancaster County farmhouse with the original barn looming nearby.

The house is perfect for a family getaway, but also available for small group retreats. Weekly rentals are available throughout the year. For shorter stays call to check availability.

Bring a few friends or the whole family and enjoy a warm welcome to Lancaster County and a peaceful stay at the Goodville Vacation Home.

Located along the Scenic Byway in Eastern Lancaster County. Originally a Mennonite Farmhouse. The house has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (one with an old-fashioned claw-foot bathtub), living room, kitchen, and mudroom. There is a washer and dryer. Linens and towels are provided for you.

We are approximately one hour’s drive from Philadelphia and surrounding areas, but you will feel like you are in another world as you gaze out over the beautiful countryside and horse and buggies regularly pass by your vacation home.

We invite you to stay in our little town of Goodville, Pennsylvania on the eastern side of Lancaster County.

                              Year Purchased: 1996

                              About the owner: I enjoy taking care of the house, and preparing it for our guests. In addition to the vacation house, I have a flower business. Some of my gardens can be found on this property. My husband and I and our kids enjoy living in this area, and we are active in our church and in the community.

                              Why the Owner Chose Churchtown:
                              Our family lived in this house before we moved into the house next door. So we have many good memories of our own in this house. As for our interest in vacation houses, this is the way we enjoy traveling, and that has helped us to know how to prepare to make our guests as comfortable as possible.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                              The Amish and Mennonites who have called Lancaster County home for generations are certainly a big reason why many people choose to visit this area. When you realize that there are real people who choose to live with out electricity and cars (not to mention no computers or cell phones!) in this day and age, not only is it interesting, but what better backdrop for a vacation where you want to relax and slow down! But we don't want to under sell what this area has to offer: -Sight and Sound Auditorium -Shady Maple Smorgasboard -Gallery Row art district -Adamstown Antique district -Hour's drive to Philadelphia, Harrisburg and Hershey. - 2 hour's drive to Baltimore, Gettysburg and the beach
