About Stephanie Greiner
My husband, Calvin, and I both grew up in Lancaster County and we have a deep love for the land. My husband was a farmer until his late 20's at which time he went into the ministry and we pursued missionary work in Nigeria. We have raised 5 children and have 8 grandchildren. My husband owns a hard wood flooring business and I am a licensed massage therapist, health coach and author. Our home is built on one of the family farms and we love to share our beautiful gardens with friends and visitors. The flower gardens and turtle resort are my husband's passion and it shows!
Stephanie Greiner purchased this Apartment in 2003
Why Stephanie Greiner chose Manheim
Our beautiful home is hidden away in the midst of the fertile Lancaster County farmland. We are only 5 minutes from the nearest town, but we live in a secluded, quiet neighborhood with only one other house nearby. Since we are now "Empty Nesters" we wanted to share our homey space with others who can appreciate being surrounded by nature and beauty
What makes this Apartment unique
Whether we're sitting on the back deck watching the turtles bathing in the sun, listening to the gently waterfall, relaxing in the rejuvenating hot tub or gazing out over the fertile fields, our property is truly a haven of beauty and peace. Many people have commented on how peaceful they feel in our home and while wandering the grounds which are peppered with busy bird houses, flowers and bushes.

Quaint and cozy. Beautiful countryside. Very inviting.
Stephanie and Calvin's apartment was the perfect place for the girls PA Renn Faire weekend getaway. Stephanie and Calvin were so nice and toured us through the apartment when we arrived. The apartment is neat and clean with comfortable bedrooms and is nicely decorated with farm house antiques throughout the apartment. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to make meals. After a long day at the Faire we enjoyed the hot tub that looked out onto beautiful landscaped acres and farms. The Koi and turtle ponds were also a nice addition to their property. If you're visiting beautiful Lancaster or attending the Faire or any event at the Mount Hope Estate and Winery I would definitely recommend staying at Glory Way Gardens. Thank you Stephanie and Calvin for such a pleasant stay. Linda, Missy, Regina and Cindy.
This place was truly special!
First off, the owners Stephanie & Calvin were a delight. Very kind & helpful. Stephanie met us when my husband & I, his aunt and our two dogs arrived to give us a brief tour of the place. The home is situated in a lovely, peaceful setting with plenty of space to walk our dogs. (It is located about 30-35 minutes from Bird-in Hand, Intercourse, etc but the ride goes very quickly. During rush hour on a Friday evening might take a bit longer.) The owners live upstairs but the it does not feel in the least intrusive. The grounds are beautiful with butterflies, turtles,& a koi fish pond. Gorgeous flowers!! Inside there is plenty of space to spread out. Beds were very comfortable. There is only one bathroom but it never seemed to be a problem. Living room has a big screen TV and comfy couches. Kitchen is on the small side but has more than everything you might need. Stephanie has a coffee system that is both a pot or a single brew which made it very convenient. All in all, one of the best places we have stayed on VRBO and would definitely stay there again if we get back up to Lancaster!!
We're so happy you were comfortable and pleased with your stay at Glory Way Gardens! We enjoyed having you!!
Great place for families! Comfortable and spacious
The hosts were very friendly and accommodating but also gave us privacy. The kitchen is well equipped and there are lots of places to sleep & plenty of bedding and towels. We had a great time!
Welcomed from the start!
Calvin and Stephanie were so gracious to our family. We enjoyed our visit in their beautiful home. Our daughter loved the gardens, turtles and koi pond and we liked the views from the hot tub. We especially appreciated the time they took to visit with us when we arrived and make us feel truly welcomed. We will definitely stay again when we make our next trip to the Lancaster area.
Very roomy and private. Perfect for my family.
Secluded but close to the Turnpike, Waltz Vineyard, Recreation areas, Renn Fest and Mt Gretna Art Show. Plenty of parking. The landscaping was beautiful.
Would recommend to everyone!! We will be coming back our next vacation😊
