Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: Tom and I were married in 1991, he has grown up here. I am from northern Pa. Tom comes from a wonderful family, just 14 brothers and sisters. We settled up the road a little to raise our family. We needed more space, so we purchased this property to build the pole barn on and the cottage was an added bonus. After long renting for many years, we decided it maybe better to try short term renting. As I am very particular with the cleanliness of this place. It is well sanitized after each use, you can rest assure of that.

Why the Owner Chose Quarryville, PA, USA:
This area is surrounded by many things that we value so much in our day to day life. Quite country living, with great neighbors, that are scattered around us and these beautiful breathtaking views. We are privileged to take in and we appreciate all around us everyday. But still not to far from all that Lancaster County has to offer. From theater, great schools, to great shopping, community activities, outdoor life , many churches, golfing, many restaurants over a 100 brewers and so much more. We love it here. and we're sure you will too! So come and see for yourself we'll leave the door open for you. :-)

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
In just a short 10 min. drive , you'll be in the town of Strasburg. Stop and enjoy your favorite flavor ice cream at the famous Creamery and watch the buggies go by. While in town you can walk to many unique shops . Then take a ride on the railroad , have dinner in the dining car and enjoy the beautiful scenery all around us. Maybe even see Thomas if he is in town. From there go on up 5 miles to the outlets , see a show at sight and sound lots of shopping at the outlets, or travel a little bit further to unique shops in intercourse, check out the antiques, try one of the many Smorgashbords available, many restaurants. Go into market on Tuesday, Friday and Sat. Take the kids to Dutch wonderland , or Hershey Park is about 50 min. drive for a day of adventure. Maybe take in a baseball game at the Barnstormer stadium, check for what games they have fireworks. You can travel on up for a day in Gettysburg, a nice drive up route 30, or down to Washington DC.(2 1/2 hrs), or maybe Philadelphia(1 1/2). You won't be bored unless you want to be. Hope to see you soon.
