Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

I’ll start with how wonderful the Smoker family is. Miriam is lovely, friendly, intelligent, giving, simply a human been that is rare to meet these days. She guided us to places where we could buy fresh produce and watched over the kids while they were playing with her daughter. We took her daughter for a bike ride and she turned out to be a very knowledgeable bike tour guide. The house itself is very clean and it has the rustic, typical Amish feel and smell of scented candles that we love. Beds are comfortable. The kitchen is stocked with all you need. My children enjoyed watching and playing with the farm animals. The surroundings are beautiful. In conclusion, highly recommended property!

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This property was even better than it appears in the listing! I cannot tell you how much my large family loved our time at Miriam's Guest House! Mim and her family made us feel like welcome friends. My children absolutely loved exploring the beautiful property, especially enjoying the farm animals and small playground. The surroundings are gorgeous, but the farmhouse is a jewel. Every detail made us feel more relaxed and inspired. So rustic and comfortable. Mim advised on area attractions according to our desires. Every place that she recommended for our sightseeing and enjoyment was perfect! It was truly sad to bid goodbye to this wonderful property. We hope to be able to visit again soon. We definitely recommend this property to everyone. Simply wonderful!

A wonderful and relaxing vacation home

  • 5 of 5

If you ever needed a description of a home away from home, this guest house is it. We came to visit family (my parents, myself, and my 6 year old daughter) and it could not have been more welcoming. The Smoker family is friendly and helpful. They were a joy to be around and spend time with. My daughter found a new friend while playing with their daughter. The house is beautiful and well maintained. The pool was welcoming after a long day of sightseeing and visiting. I would strongly recommend this property for any family looking for a "home" while on vacation.

Our AMAZING Experience

  • 5 of 5

I want to begin by thanking Miriam and her family for allowing us to stay at their beautiful guest house for the weekend. we came upon this house as we were seeking places to stay while exploring all the lovely activities Lancaster has to offer. We came with our two children and another couple and their three children. From the moment we pulled up the drive way, we were blown away. The property itself is beautifully maintained and is home to not only Miriam and her family but a family of sheep, horses, donkeys, chickens and some cows! Not only did my children go crazy with excitement to see all that, but the parents were too! The guest house, unbelievable. Beautifully decorated with warm, rustic touches, the house presents itself as very warm and welcoming. Our children frolicked on the property, playing on the playground and following sandy the pony around while we sat on the porch relaxing soaking up the fresh air. I would highly recommend this property to rent for any family looking to relax in a beautiful atmosphere. Miriam and her family were extremely accommodating and so sweet, we look forward to coming back in the near future!
