Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: Ruthie was born in the Village of Intercourse. Her parents were both brought up in the Amish church but left the Amish church when she was two years old and joined a Mennonite church. Her family spoke Pennsylvania Dutch and her parents continued to speak 'Dutch' to each other throughout their life. Grandparents and some extended family members remained Amish and therefore, she was very comfortable in their homes and grew up understanding their customs. John was also brought up Amish in a family of nine, his dad was a farmer on a 140 acre dairy farm. John left the Amish church at age 21 and joined the same Mennonite church that Ruthie attended. We now attend Keystone Evangelical Free Church. We have two children and five beautiful grandchildren.
Why the Owner Chose Intercourse, PA, USA:
We bought this property to provide our guests with a clean, cozy 'home away from home.' Both homes have hand painted murals on the walls. The Vacation House offers a fully equipped kitchen, a laundry room with a washer and dryer, large dining room, large living room with a sofa bed and cable TV with a DVD and VHS player and free WIFI. Two bedrooms [both with a queen and single bed], one full bath and a powder room in the front bedroom and a pack and play. It also has a flag stone porch to sit and watch the horse and buggies go by. The Cottage [Dawdi Haus] is a great room with two queen beds and a full bathroom with a shower, sitting area with table and chairs, sofa bed, refrigerator, microwave, coffee pot, toaster oven, cable TV with a DVD and VHS player and free WIFI. It has a wonderful porch with a swing that is perfect for relaxing and watching the horse and buggies go by. For more Cottage information and calendar go to the Amish Guest House Cottage link Both facilities are air conditioned and provide telephones with free local calls, free WIFI and a light continental breakfast.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
What we hear a lot from our guests is their love of seeing and hearing the Amish horse and buggies going by as they sit on the porch. We have a double glider in the back yard to relax on and also flower gardens. There is a working old fashioned hand pump that the children enjoy playing with and that adults also enjoy as it brings back memories from their past. We have a fireplace in the back yard that you can charcoal grill on.
