Great stay for a rustic family farm experience
We loved the charm of the house and the overall farm. My girls loved the animals and the many cats on the property. Each morning the girls loved running out to see the animals grazing. We had everything we needed. Overall, we had a wonderful time.
A tranquil family farmhouse getaway
Well situated near Lancaster's sites, this gem of a historic mill certainly beckons to relax and just be together. Our family loved exploring the barn, hunting for eggs, meeting the animals and taking in the property's beauty. Katcha, thank you for the kindness that you extended to our daughters and for letting them help out! The farmhouse was comfortable, well-outfitted and thoughtfully decorated with unique and vintage farmhouse-style finds.
Winter was still thawing into spring during our stay. While our travel wish list is long, we'd like to come back in the warm weather, for bike riding, creek play, and s'mores around the fire pit.
I'm glad the girls enjoyed finding the eggs, even climbing up to the hay loft in their quest! Thank you for choosing to stay at our farm. It was a pleasure meeting you!
Historic, beautiful farm!
The owners were very helpful and informative. Katcha gave us a tour of the mill and farm grounds. She also helped us find eggs that the chickens had laid and told us about the various animals. We had a great time and recommend this beautiful place to families, couples, and anyone looking for an out-of-ordinary experience!
Wonderful Property, Wonderful Hosts
Beautiful historic property in a picturesque setting. When you vacation to get away from it all, this is a dream come true. Georgeous drives in every direction as you travel to Gettysburg or tour Pennsylvania Dutch Country. It is also nice just spending time on the farm playing in the creek, hiking, and getting a tour of the amazing mill. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
