About Sharon Krock
I grew up in Lancaster County and in this house! I moved away after college and getting married, but returned to the area after having children and spent a year restoring the farmhouse. My husband and I like to restore old homes and we are currently working on a historic inn in Churchtown, PA.
Sharon Krock purchased this Farmhouse in 2001
Why Sharon Krock chose Narvon
I grew up in this house and we bought it from my parents and restored it. We lived in it for a few years before deciding to rent it out as a vacation rental because we loved the property and house and didn't want to sell it. The only reason we moved out is because we bought another 200+ year old stone home just five minutes away that we are currently restoring. The area is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet of the countryside, strolling through local parks, watching horse and buggies go by, visiting the numerous historic districts, museums and various Amish and Pennsylvania Dutch attractions in Lancaster County. The property itself is the perfect getaway from hectic lives - you might not want to leave!
Please consider the following guidelines when booking this property:
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Great get away!
Amazing get away! Our family enjoyed every minute of our stay, will definitely return again. It was very peaceful, quiet and relaxing.
We really enjoyed the property and would love to stay there again!
Cute and cozy, lovely place to stay
We had a great time bringing in the new year with our loved ones at this property, we would recommend it again.
Looking for peace and nature, we found the perfect place to travel back in time. Unforgettable moments gazing at the stars and listening to birds...
So Peaceful and Kid-Friendly!
Peacefulness and kids don't always go hand in hand... at least, not with our boys? :)... but Sharon's wonderful farmhouse checked both boxes in a BIG way. My city kids loved having a swing set to play on, a sandbox to play in, a tree to climb, a basketball court for shooting hoops and riding their bicycle--and we ate all of our meals around the fire pit. For me... watching all that happen with a mug of hot coffee in hand... from the porch and wandering the front and side yards... was perfection. (The crib "just like home" said our very little one was such a bonus.) Sharon, THANK YOU! You were so kind to let us stay despite such last-minute notice and we also appreciated your September Farm Cheese recommendation. We loved the people at Town Hall Restaurant, too. Just one request: Would you please send us a photo of that magnificent magnolia tree in bloom? I just can't imagine how spectacular that must be.
Lovely, clean home
Thr house itself is very well taken care of, very clean, new furniture and towels, beds and linens were super comfy. It was wonderful to put our baby in a real crib rather than a pack n play, she slept like a log. Unfortunately the weather was very cold the weekend we were there so we were trapped indoors a bit, which was hard. I would definitely rent this place again but just in the warmer months to take advantage of the big yard and fire pit.
Rolling hills of farmland surround the area. You'll drive by pastures of cows, horses and enjoy the view on the way to the property, which is in the small town of Narvon, PA, where there are no traffic lights!
Just up the hill from the property is Money Rocks County park with a short walk to a gorgeous overlook. Also a great township park, Historic Poole Forge, 2 minutes from the house with a covered bridge, great playground and picnic areas along the Conestoga Creek.
30 minutes from Lancaster, 30 minutes from Reading, 1 hour from Hershey, 1 hour from Philadelphia, 1 hour from Harrisburg, 2 hours from Baltimore, 2.5 hours from New York City, 3 hours from Washington D.C. - we're in the center of everything!
