Farmhouse, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s ), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-2)
John and Doris Landis started here after buying the family farm from John's father in the 70's. With the help of their son, John Jr. and several employees they have continued to maintain and grow their farm. In 1983 they began their mulch landscaping business that is now known as Landyshade Mulch. Their mulch business grew quickly and is known all over Lancaster County now.
Marge purchased this Farmhouse in 1975

This was the perfect house for our stay.
The property is landscaped perfectly. The house has a huge front porch, were we spent our evenings and mornings. The bed rooms are large and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen table easily sat 12 people. The owners are very nice and accommodating. We are planning on staying there again next year.
Our Landyshade stay
Just a note. 4 days before we were supposed to be leaving to go to our Hershey Park vacation the first house that we had picked and booked in December had canceled on us. When we called VRBO they found this house within 5 minutes. If it wasn't for the property manager Marge I don't know what our family would have done. So first things first thank you Marge you are the best! When we arrived we met Marge and she went through the house with us the place is and was spotless I don't know if I've ever felt so comfortable in someone else's home before. Plenty of room for 8 adults and 5 children. My five grand daughter's age is 11 months to seven years old had a blast in the house and fell in love with The Farmhouse dog Hank! Again I can't thank Marge enough for being able to accommodate us in such short notice. If you're looking to go to Lancaster or Hershey Park and you have a large family this is the place to stay thanks again!
Drop Everything and Book!
I cannot say enough about this property! We stayed as a family of 12. The pictures do not do this farm justice! The house is immaculate. The updated amenities were wonderful, without taking away from the history or charm of the house. The rooms were spacious, bright and airy. We were all able to sit down for breakfast and enjoy each other's company in the massive kitchen.
Marge is a sweetheart! We felt so comfortable and Hank's welcome was an added bonus! My only regret is that we did not book more days at the house to truly enjoy everything the farm has to offer.
Do yourself a favor, book this property and make some wonderful memories with your family - we did!
The Lewis Clan
Our family (5 adults, 3 children, 1 baby) had a wonderful time at the Farmhouse. The house itself is very spacious and could easily accommodate all of us. The location was also great, as it was just a short drive to downtown Lancaster and various locations, such as Long's Park. The kids also had a fun time playing on the playground equipment in the back. Thanks for having us!
Good farm house
The farm house is good and spacious. The property manager was friendly.
