Clean cozy relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely time in a beautiful home away from home. The guest house is filled with everything you need and want in a getaway. It was cozy, clean and perfect for a family or two. They had toys for the kids to enjoy, a playset and so much fun to explore. They've thought of everything to make your visit enjoyable. We'd love to come back in the future!

Pictures don’t do this property justice!

  • 5 of 5

Miriam was so wonderful and her guest house was beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, and smelled so homey! This home is so much more beautiful in person. It is also perfect for children! Miriam had toys, a high chair, a pack n play, veggie tales videos, a playground, and animals on their farm to see. My family greatly enjoyed our stay!

Fabulous Farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

We greatly enjoyed staying in this classic farmhouse, lovingly and skillfully restored and updated with every modern convenience and very tastefully decorated.

Our hosts were incredibly hospitable and attentive, living in another house on the property. They even got out trikes and scooters for the kids to ride around.

Our kids greatly enjoyed the playground and petting the farm animals. Indoors they enjoyed playing with the farm animal toys and reading the children's books.

We adults loved the porch-- in both hot and cool weather, the large modern kitchen and having a bathroom on each floor. It was great to have a small bedroom to ourselves and a large bedroom for the kids (with a loft if we had needed extra space).The vaulted ceilings in the bedrooms were also a lovely touch.

We highly recommend this home and would gladly stay there again if we have the chance.

Country Charm and then some!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the drive to this house was beautiful. Approaching the driveway we couldn't help but admire the perfectly manicured lawn, the blooming flower beds, the various animals roaming around, the comfy furniture on the porch and the fenced-in pool. (Way too early for us to take a dip but I'm sure it'll will be great for visitors in the summer months.)

Upon entering the house it immediately felt very comfortable, spacious and homey, filled with everything you need for a home away from home.

Mim was very accommodating, attentive and friendly. She stopped by to see if we needed anything, answered all our questions and immediately returned texts or calls but was not imposing at all.

If my girlfriends and I get the opportunity, we will definitely come back. We will also recommend Mim and her property to our friends and family. Thanks Mim!

Wonderful Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for a quiet, comfortable place to stay while visiting relatives nearby and we were fortunate to find the listing for Mim and Omar's beautiful Farmhouse. Everything was perfect! The beds were comfy, the living room warm and inviting, the outside grounds meticulously maintained. And we loved all of Mim's special touches throughout the house. We felt right at home. The kitchen came stocked with some great coffee to start the day and a surprise of fresh baked bread and homemade jam. What a treat! We look forward to returning to this Pennsylvania Gem soon.
