About Fan Smucker

Our family has lived on this same property for over 30 years and we raised our four children here. It is in a rural location, surrounded by Amish neighbors and acres of lawn, as our property sets adjacent to soccer fields which belong to our local school. Some years ago we added a new addition to our Cape Cod house and left an unfinished lower-level to be renovated in the future. In the Spring of 2010, the dream was realized and the little guest apartment hideaway was completed!

Fan Smucker purchased this apartment in 2010

What makes this apartment unique

Although we live within a short distance of many activities, and are located within several hours of some of the largest cities in the Northeastern United States, our home is nestled in the quiet countryside of Lancaster County's Amish community. It truly is the best of both worlds!

Beautiful and cozy! Clean and refreshing!

  • 4 of 5

A nice little getaway, close to Bird/in-Hand. Very quiet country setting with nice big yard and gazebo. Coffee and Amish bread was waiting for our arrival, a very nice touch.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect! The Hideaway was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed for a quiet weekend away. The grounds are also very well maintained. The pictures

do not do this rental justice, we hope to be back in the fall. Thank you Fan, Carl and Cooper!

The Perfect Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I needed a weekend away and the Hideaway was the perfect spot. The suite is beautifully decorated, clean and spacious. It literally has everything that you need. As previous reviewers mentioned, Cooper was definitely one of the many highlights of our trip. He was our friendly watch dog and greeted us when we arrived near 7:30pm. It was truly a pleasure exploring Lancaster, and then returning to the warmth of the Hideaway. Oh and I can't forget to mention the amazing customer service from Fan. She is friendly, professional and caring. I have already recommended the Hideaway to family and friends.

Perfect place for a weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

I swear by AirBnB rental type places at this point, prefer them over hotels. This was by far the most well kept and finely furnished rental I have stayed in. Check in/out was easy. Bed suuuuper comfortable. Owners easy to communicate with. For the price a wonderful place anniversary getaway, compared to the fancy B&Bs in the nearby village. We're dog people so having a dog-away-from-home in Cooper was also fun. If we plan a Lancaster trip again this will be the first accommodation we check.

Hideaway Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the most wonderful stay at the Hideaway! The decor was warm and inviting and made us feel right at home. Furnishings were so comfy and the fireplace an extra special touch. The bed was just as luxurious as the pictures show. Even had a washer and dryer. Bathroom well stocked with plenty of luxurious towels. Coffee and Amish Bread were delicious first thing in the morning. This is a must place to stay. Loved waking up and stepping outside to see the beautiful sunrise over the fields and to listen to the sound of the horses pulling the Amish buggies along the road by the Hideaway. An idyllic place to stay! Wonderful hosts!
