About the property
- Half Baths1
- Minimum Stay2 - 3 nights
We would love to have you come and enjoy our home built off our family farm. We are in the heart of Amish country, making our house a perfect location for families visiting Lancaster County. With Country Housewares (locally called Amish Walmart) 200 ft down the road, the traffic on our back road consists of more buggies than cars. The quiet, peaceful setting will facilitate a relaxing stay. From our front lawn, we have a beautiful view overlooking our Amish neighbor's chicken and produce farm. We are only minutes from the popular Lancaster towns of Bird-in-Hand and Intercourse.
Our house includes four bedrooms and three bathrooms. Our large upstairs kitchen, with the small basement kitchen, provides place to accommodate a larger family or group. Our full size basement is a great place for family games, quilting bees, scrap-booking, etc.
With our parent's cornfield behind the house, our backyard is a quiet place to enjoy the night sky or sit around a small campfire.
Local produce, fresh eggs, and bake goods can be purchased a mile down the road at our Amish neighbor's roadside stand. Also, children will love the Hayloft Candle Barn's petting zoo and their creamy home made ice cream.

About Chris & Shannon Lapp
Shannon and I were born and raised in Lancaster County. I was raised on the 8th generation family farm that borders our house. As for Shannon, all her growing up years were spent on her parent's chicken farm only five miles down the road. So as high-school sweethearts, Lancaster County was all we ever knew until 2016 when God led us to teach at a Bible College in southern Indiana. Now with our seven children, we spend the school term in Indiana and come back "home" to Lancaster for the summer months. So when we're gone, our house is open for others to enjoy!!!
Chris & Shannon Lapp purchased this House in 2004
Why Chris & Shannon Lapp chose Leola
My grandparents built the house off the family farm as their retirement property. In the 90's, my older brother bought the house from our grandparents. Then in 2004, when my brother moved on the family farm, we had the opportunity to buy the home. So with the cornfield as our back property line, I never really moved off the farm. Being surrounded by both of our families, the picturesque setting, and the peaceful Lancaster county culture, there's no place we'd rather live. So because we've been so blessed, we'd be delighted to have you experience the setting we've been privileged to call home.
What makes this House unique
We'd love to have you stay at our home!!! With farmland in front and behind us, you'll love the peace and quiet. The great view from our front yard of the neighbor's produce farm will take you back it time. The idyllic setting is hard to beat and will make for a relaxing vacation!!! Bring your quilting, sewing, or scrapbooking group and spread out in our spacious basement. Be sure to visit our quilt/fabric (Family Farm Quilts 3511 West Newport Rd. Ronks, PA 1757) shop just 5 minutes away in the town of Intercourse. With the popular Amish towns of Intercourse and Bird-in-Hand only a few minutes away, our home is perfectly located for easy access to all the tourist attractions. Because Dutch Wonderland, Cherry Crest Farm, and Sight and Sound are so close by, our home is a great place to stay for a family vacation. With seven children of our own, our house is kid-friendly and perfect for a family of any size. So bring your family, experience real Lancaster county among the Amish, de-stress from the busy pace of life, and make family memories that will last forever!!!!

Very nice and comfortable rental.
We had a great time and enjoyed every minute of our stay. House was very nice and comfortable. Everything we needed was there for our convinience. We thank you for your hospitality.
Our trip was amazing, the house was exactly as distributed if not better. Shannon was awesome with giving us some recommendations for things to do in the area. The fresh milk and and homemade bread and jelly was such a nice treat.
Absolutely wonderful for our family of 6 adults and 5 children. Loads of space and well-equipped.
The location of the House is excellent for touring Lancaster County and the neighboring area. The amenities in the house were excellent with plenty of everything- linens, towels, utensils, tissue, etc. etc. Best of all is the space - five bedrooms with two huge common areas, one on each floor. The kids loved the garden too and we even did some cooking on the fire pit.
The outlook is restful and classically ‘Amish Country’. Leola and New Holland have great cafes (Gracie’s and Eli’s)ice cream parlor (Lockett Split), buffet restaurant (Yoder’s) quilt shops (Witmer’s and Riehl’s) and at the best prices in the area.
Everything in the house was spotless and we appreciated the loaf of bread and bottle of raw milk when we arrived.
Would we go again? Absolutely! As the kids said ‘Can’t we live here?’
Thank you for helping us make great family memories.
Great place to stay for the weekend
My family and I had a gender reveal party this weekend here and we couldn't have found a better home. We had plenty of room, a nice kitchen to make food, and a huge backyard to be able to hang out. I would highly recommend this to anyone the house was just perfect!
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! Thanks for taking good care of our property. We would love to have you come back!
Beautiful House and Great Area
I recently celebrated my 21st birthday here with a group of friends. This was our first getaway and we had a blast! All the bedrooms where comfy, we had so much room and the area was so much fun to explore! We had run of the whole house and I have to say this getaway was the reason I want to travel more! The home owner left us milk,bread and jelly! It was so thoughtful! I recommend this stay if you are looking to get away from the city life! Thank you so much! :)
We loved the stay!
This place is perfect for a small quilters retreat!
Very close to all those fabric shops! We really don't want to leave!!
