"We had such a nice time here! The house is nice. Plenty of room for the 6 adults and 4 small children in our group. The farm is beautiful. The Wanners were gracious welcoming hosts and the neighbors were lovely."

"We chose this property due to it's close proximity to all the attractions in Lancaster, and primarily, because we wanted a pool for the grandkids. The house was clean and the beds comfortable.
The home does have central air conditioning, which was very nice given how hot it was. Unfortunately, the a/c did not cool off the upstairs bedrooms as much as we would have liked and it was a little warm. As previous reviewers have stated, the traffic noise level outside the house is bad. There is a constant flow of traffic, both night and day, of cars and tracker trailers making it difficult to sleep at night. If you are a light sleeper, you may want to get ear plugs. The backyard is nice but if you are looking for quiet time to read a book, this is not the place with all the road noise. The pool was very refreshing but I would like to suggest to the owner that the hole at the top of the steps of the pool should be fixed because a small child could easy get their foot stuck in it and it could be a hazard to an adult, as well. I don't mean to be overly negative because the house was nice, but there is a very strong mildew odor when entering the home."

"We totally enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was very comfortable staying here. We ventured to Gettysburg several times taking in the sights along the way. Loved seeing the farms and the trees turning colors. We went at a perfect time while the colors were so brilliant. We live in the desert so this was very special for us. We made some very special memories as it was in celebration of our birthdays and we had this trip planned for a year.
We highly recommend this little cottage."

Gorgeous house, but NO CELL SERVICE available at this location
"This house and property--is gorgeous! The biggest problem we had here--this house has NO CELL SERVICE! It must be too far back in the woods. It ended up being a very important glitch in our visit, as two families had emergency family issues come up and communication was a BIG problem. Some of us were able to send iMessages on our iPhones, but those people who had Android phones were even out of luck on being able to send text messages. The wifi/internet service in the house is very slow and the modem is outdated, which is what I believe caused the problem with the texting (there wasn't even enough bandwidth to FaceTime). The slow wifi also caused issues with our tablets and laptops working slowly. There was only ONE landline phone in the kitchen (for this huge house). Even though we were able to make and receive long distance calls on that landline, it was very inconvenient. While I realize a lot of people go on vacation to get away from it all and relax, in this day and age, we still depend on our cell phones and need communication and working, modern wifi.
Pros: lovely house set back in the woods; plenty of seating for meal time and pots, pans, and dinnerware; huge master bath with a beautiful huge tub; wrap around porch; all kinds of wildlife; fire pit and BBQ grill; most of the beds were comfortable and had nice linens; towels were thick and soft. Lots of comfy chairs, games and DVDs around.
Cons: upkeep on this property is lacking. The shower curtain in the master bath had mildew all over it (as did the one downstairs) and it was dirty in other spots in the bathroom (the maid service is not doing a good job of cleaning) and light bulbs were out in lamps. We didn't have enough towels to go around. There were only 2 TVs, and their satellite TV had minimal channels on it (again, if it's raining outside--you need to do something). There were minimal nightstands and bedroom furniture to store our clothes. Some of the chairs on the porch were broken in spots. The sprayer attachment on the kitchen sink didn't work, & we didn't have a clean dish rag or sponge to wash dishes with (only a very dirty sponge which we refused to use).
This is a nice play to stay--but the owners really need to do some upkeep. The lack of cell service was a dealbreaker for us; and, by the way, this place is a good 20 minutes outside of Gettysburg, not the 8 minutes we were told. Even though it was lovely, it was quite a drive out there. I'd stay somewhere else next time."
