About the Property

Bittersweet Guest House Nestled In The Hills Of Pennsylvania Dutch Country

Enjoy your stay in a quaint farmhouse overlooking 12 acres of farmland. The guest house is just minutes off Interstate I-78 and is very easy to find. Our house sits back off the main road, Old Route 22, down a private, paved driveway. We are sure that you will feel at home because each room has a comfortable and cozy setting. The Berks, Lehigh County area has opportunities for many activities and sightseeing experiences such as wineries, hiking/bird watching at Hawk Mountain and bicycling at Rodale Park. Enjoy the areas festivals like Wheels of Time and Das Awkscht Fest both in Macungie, Allentown’s Mayfair, Kutztown’s Folk Festival and Bethlehem’s Musikfest. Renninger’s Farmers Market outside of Kutztown provides opportunities for shopping for local produce. The market is also the home of the Renninger’s Antique Market and Extravaganzas. Parents may like to visit their children attending Kutztown University, Cedar Crest College, Muhlenberg College, Lehigh University and Moravian College, which are all close by. After a day of exploring the area, you could enjoy cooking your own meal in a fully stocked kitchen or sit on the porch and enjoy a refreshing beverage. By chance you might see deer or foxes roaming through the property. So call and book your stay for any season.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: The Bittersweet Guest House is nestled in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania Dutch Country and is the boyhood home of the owner. This 12-acre farm has been in the family for over 60 years and the land is still being farmed today. After inheriting this property over 4 years ago, the owner and his wife have extensively remodeled and lovingly refurbished this guesthouse. As guests turn into the country lane, they will be greeted by a peaceful retreat in all seasons for folks seeking a quiet refuge from busy city life. Relaxation begins the moment a guest steps into the home. The day’s missed deadlines and snarled traffic become distant memories while sitting on the front porch having a relaxing beverage. The owner’s continual dedication to detail has fostered an environment that is comfortable and cozy. The Bittersweet Guest House is just minutes away from quaint villages, cycling events, professional baseball parks, wildlife sanctuaries, farmers markets, antique markets and the nearby cities of Allentown and Reading.
