A private road leads to this beautiful country manor where peace and quiet abound. Located among a large Amish community, the house is nestled on 85 acres of woods and pasture with hiking trails, biking trails, fishing hole and wildlife viewing.
Perfect for a family, group, wedding or a retreat vacation. There are six bedrooms, three large full baths and loads of room in this 4200 square foot manor. There is an over-sized master bedroom with a king bed; a "great room" that has a king bed and a queen bed as well as two large sofa sets (that seat 8-10 people) and a TV- often used for the "kids room"; four bedrooms with queen beds; and two queen size convertible beds that are very comfortable. We also have a daybed/trundle bed which sleeps two and two queen size blow up mattresses available for large groups. There are 6 private bedrooms in the house, however, the "great room" is accessible only through another room.
New Haven is a nature lover's paradise. You can go bird watching (eagles, hawks, cardinals, etc), deer watching, bunnies galore, mushroom hunting, ginseng hunting, or just relax on the front porch listening to the frogs and Amish buggies in the distance. You could also pick your own apples off our private apple trees and bake a fresh apple pie in New Haven's extra large kitchen.
There's plenty of hiking and playing room too. You can play Bocce ball on the front lawn, hillbilly golf or have a picnic in the fields.
