Overview

About the property

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms, 2 bathroom with farm land veiw, (Sleeps 2-8)

Churchtown Manor Farm Guesthouse is located 15 minutes from the village of Intercourse, in the heart of Amish Country. Staying at Churchtown Manor is an opportunity to experience a dairy farm were you can watch us milk out organic cows and help feed the baby calves if you like. We will make sure you have fresh organic milk. Come enjoy and relax .

Churchtown Manor was formerly an Amish farm which was purchased by the owners great-grandparents in 1937. The farmhouse was built in the 1800's and has been remodeled recently. The Guesthouse was originally built for the owners grandfather after his son got married and took over the farm. The apartment has since been occupied by the owners parents as well.

Among the Amish and Mennonites, attached apartments like the Guesthouse are commonly known as the 'Dawdy House'. ('Dawdy' is the word for 'Father' in the Pennsylvania Dutch language that the Amish speak.) Often when a son takes over the farm, the father 'Dawdy' will move into the apartment so that the son has room to raise his family and also so that the father can semi-retire.

These apartments are also sometimes occupied by a newly married son or daughter. When you stay with the Stoltzfus' in their 'Dawdy House', you are actually able to experience part of the Amish and Mennonite culture!

The Stoltzfus' would love to have you stay with them and enjoy their 100 acre, organic dairy farm which boasts beautiful views of the countryside. When you stay at Churchtown Manor and experience the peaceful setting, let your mind take you back to what this farm may have been like 100 years ago!

The Stoltzfus' own Lena's Victorian Luxuries in Bird-In-Hand, a gift shop that will also take you back 100 years! The Guesthouse is decorated with items from their shop. You will definitely want to take a trip to the store to purchase a gift for that friend you left at home or a treat for yourself.

This was a great place for me and my family to spend our vacation the views are outstanding the fresh raw milk was something I had never tried before but I liked it! We looked forward to being greeted morning and night by Rocky the dog as we came and went. next time we head to the area we will definitely try to stay here again.

Beautiful Farm Guesthouse!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this lovely farm. We had four adults and three children, and there was plenty of room. The guesthouse was comfortable and has amazing views of the countryside. The host, Lena, greeted us outside and was very friendly. The site is an operating dairy farm, so expect there to be some noise and activity. This wasn't bad for us, though. The new puppy Rocky became my son's best friend. He cried when we had to say goodbye, so we're looking forward to coming back. Thank you, Lena!

Very nice apartment. We had 6 adults and accommodations were very nice. I would not want to have more than 6 people. Small living room area. We loved the dog - Skittles.
