Located in a bucolic region of Adams County, just minutes from historic downtown Gettysburg, Willow Lodge is nestled in a wooded setting at the edge of a working farm, Primrose Dale. Close to Route 15, guests have easy access to other area attractions such as Adams County wineries, the Appalachian Trail, ski slopes, golf courses, antique and outlet shopping, Harrisburg museums, and Hershey Park just to name a few.
Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: Lawrence and Wendy Shrader are the owners of Willow Lodge and Primrose Dale Farm. It is a working farm that not only produces corn, soybeans and grass hay but is also home to a variety of livestock including purebred Kinder goats, Berkshire Hogs, one Alpaca, one guard Llama, a flock of chickens and a bunch of waddling ducks. Lawrence was born and raised in Littlestown and Wendy in Gettysburg so they are both native to Adams County. Both have a family background in farming.
Why the Owner Chose York Springs, PA, USA:
In 2006 and newly married, Lawrence and Wendy began searching for the farm of their dreams...one that was not too far off the beaten path but far enough to provide the tranquility and pastoral setting they were looking for. Their search ended in 2010 when a 52 acre farm with two houses went on the auction block. Lawrence and Wendy moved quickly and with one swift sound of a gavel, Primrose Dale was born. By offering Willow Lodge as a guest cottage here on their farm, they hope to share with others the peace and tranquil beauty they found here in upper Adams County.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Sitting back off the main road, the private gravel lane leads to a farm house and guest cottage. An abundance of wildlife can be spotted from Willow Lodge. It is not a rare occurrence to see a buck or a doe with her fawn grazing at the edge of the woods. The sound of a woodpecker, or a dove; an occasional 'hoot' of an owl is typical. The quiet beauty and the privacy of the location is unsurpassed….a serene place to rest, relax and renew.
