About the property

3 Bedroom Rental Located In The Main Square Of Unique Bavarian Village

The Handel Haus is located in the main plaza of Stoudtburg Village in Northern Lancaster County, PA. The charm and uniqueness you will find in this quaint little old world village will keep you coming back. The Handel Haus is surrounded by Bavarian style houses, knick knack shops, and some great local eatery's. Not to mention the abundance of antique shops throughout Adamstown, PA.

This Handal Haus is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom vacation rental. Most houses located in the Bavarian Village feature a shop on the lower level and living quarters on the 2nd and 3rd floor. As you enter our home you will be directed up the stairs to the main living quarters. The master bedroom has a king size bed and in suite bathroom with both bathtub and shower. The 2nd floor also features the living room with gas log fireplace and flat screen T.V. The dining room boasts a table for 4 with some extra boards in case more room is needed. The dining room also has a small standing balcony that looks out over the main plaza. The kitchen is equipped with all your cooking needs. Of course we have not planned for a gourmet meal to be cooked but would love to help stock our kitchen with any suggestions you would have. This is a great space for holiday getaway in beautiful Lancaster, Pa but a holiday wouldn't be complete without a great meal.

The third floor has two bedrooms, a bathroom and an additional sitting area with a flat screen T.V. The bedrooms on the third floor feature two twin beds and a queen size bed. This space is what makes is wonderful for families, the kids can camp out on the 3rd floor while the adults enjoy time together on the main floor.

Please note that these homes do have a bunch of stairs. The living quarters are located on the second and third floor, but the laundry room is located downstairs in the basement.

Beautiful village

  • 5 of 5

We simply loved our stay at the Handel House. Such a cute village and the surrounding houses and square so beautifully decorated for Christmas. The house had everything we needed for our 2 week stay. The beds were very comfortable lived the master bedroom with the larger walk in closet and large bathroom. The upstairs bedrooms and living area was very cozy too. We had a small plumbing problem and it was taken care of very fast even with the holidays so close.

Big bonus was having the garage because the weather turned very cold.

Beautiful peaceful place to base our vacation adventures!

The beds were very comfortable and the property met our needs perfectly. We visited Lancaster, Gettysburg, Philadelphia, and Hershey. This was a great central location.

Nice Home. Ideal getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, restful vacation in a peaceful Bavarian style village. The home was very clean, the beds were comfortable and it was well maintained. Cereal, juice, milk, tea and coffee were provided by the homeowner upon our arrival. There was a quaint restaurant located just steps away where we enjoyed dinner a couple nights. There is also a large supermarket a short distance from the home. This was the perfect location to shop for antiques and to take advantage of farmers markets. It is also only 30 minutes from all the Amish attractions in Lancaster and the Strasburg railroad.

We had a very enjoyable time and definitely recommend this property. We plan to return again next summer.

Very quiet little village

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay at the Handel Haus. There was plenty of room for the six of us. Communication with the host was not a problem, which made check-in and check-out easy.

The house was cozy and quaint!

  • 4 of 5

We had such a wonderful time. I do wish the village had more shops and that the house was decorated for the holidays was beautiful and immaculate. We ate and had drinks at the village haus which was very good and an adorable little cafe. We also stopped in the candy store and bought some chocolates too. We traveled to Lancaster which was only 30 mins away for a show and shopping and then in the evening we went to reading which was only 15-20 mins away. Perfect location!

Charming community, clean and well furnished house, in move in condition.

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay! The bed was extremely comfortable, kitchen well stocked (wished I could've taken more advantage of the kitchen), living room more than adequately furnished, liked the multiple TVs (which I only used at bedtime ). Can't comment on top floor as I didn't want to walk the extra steps!

Suggestion: include path maps with initial emails to allow easier location of property. We came in at night and spent time going in circles!

See you again!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much! We are happy to know you enjoyed your stay at the Handel Haus. Excellent tip for driving directions, it can be confusing with all the same style houses in the village :) We look forward to hosting you and your family in the future at the Handel Haus.
