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!

Clean, Quiet and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We often use Home away for out travels and this home was one of the cleanest. We enjoyed the open green area, the gazebo was perfect for morning coffee and our girls loved the playground. Fan and Carl were both very nice and courteous. Cooper and Sunshine we're very sweet and nice to have around, as my girls love animals. The location is perfect for visiting key locations in the area. I highly recommend.

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!
