House was nice and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

The house was well appointed and had a nice view out back. Plenty of room for our group. The hosts were very accommodating and replied to all inquiries promptly. We would recommend this house fully.

Very comfortable and scenic!

  • 5 of 5

There was plenty of room for five children two parents and two grandparents to relax and plan our days in Lancaster. Everything clean and comfortable. I would recommend installing a handrail for the 3 steps leading to the upper level bedrooms. There are no beds on the main level. It would make a big difference to the elderly and disabled.

Recommended for big groups!

We staid in this house 2 nights for New Year.

This house is very nice - 4 bedrooms located on 2 floors gave us a lot of space and privacy. Also, 2 living rooms located on to different floors were perfect for us and our kids, since the kids could play different games and listen to the music without bothering the adults, and vice versa. The kitchen on the main floor has a table for at least 10 people, which was awesome. Even though it was around 10F outside, inside was very warm. House was very clean and nicely decorated. Fast internet, if you care about that in Amish country :)

Overall, great experience!

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at the guesthouse with all of our children and grandchildren. 15 in all. Plenty of space for everyone to relax, eat and spread out. The children really enjoyed watching the horse and buggies going up and down the street. There were plenty of activities in the area to explore. Rosene was extremely responsive to all our questions.

A perfect place to meet with multiple families

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our Thanksgiving get together! With four bedrooms and three baths, everyone in our group of 9 had a bed to sleep in, and a bathroom was always available! We cooked a full Thanksgiving meal in the kitchen, and all of us were able to sit around the table with room to spare. I would definitely recommend this to others, and I will be visiting again!
