About the Property

4 Bedrooms * 3 Baths, 2 big family rooms * HUGE screened porch 2 - 14 NIGHT STAY

The moment we first laid eyes on this circa 1750 sandstone farmhouse, we knew immediately what an incredibly special home it was. We are thrilled to share this beautiful piece of history with you. Your friends and family will cherish the vacation memories made here, and you'll love the private in-ground pool and 18' screened porch. It is privately situated in the peaceful village of Lampeter where you will have easy and quick access to all the attractions that define the Lancaster County experience. This home has been expertly renovated and tastefully appointed with high quality furnishings for maximum comfort and a mix of antiques that compliment its place in history as one of Lancaster’s seven original farmhouses. Not only will you be surrounded by an authentic piece of Lancaster’s past, but you will be enveloped by all the comforts of the modern world. This home boasts flat screen TVs, high speed Internet, top of the line appliances, and central air and a 9 foot dining room table big enough for the whole gang.


You will instantly feel right at home. The exterior of the home is equally as fabulous with a spectacular, private in-ground pool, a spacious screened porch right off the kitchen and family room, plus professional landscaping. You will not soon forget your vacation at The Carpenter House—you will not be disappointed!

FYI...This home is one of two historic gems we offer for vacation rentals, and both homes are large enough for your entire family. The Stone Home at Shallowbrook Farm (properrt #156751) is on a 50 acre horse farm, has Amish neighbors, and a private in-ground POOL.

We also have an adorable COTTAGE with 2 bedrooms, den with queen sleeper and 2 full baths. Sleeps 4 - 6 comfortably. Take a look at homeaway property # 3540938
