About the property

One Bedroom Cottage In Heart Of Lancaster Amish County

The cottage is a tranquil getaway surrounded by Amish farmland with a one room Amish school ­house directly across the road. You will see our Amish neighbors walking, pushing scooters or riding in their buggies using the farm lane right beside the cottage. You look out over our gardens and are welcome and sit and relax in the adirondack chairs. The grounds are also home to our six active children, two overly friendly dogs and a beautiful but shy cat.

We are just minutes away from many local attractions. The town of Intercourse is famous for Kitchen Kettle Village and horse and buggy rides. We are also close to Rockvale Square and Tanger Outlets along with Strasburg Railroad, Dutch Wonderland Amusement Park, Sight and Sound Theater and so much more. We are within a few miles of famous Amish cooking restaurants such as Bird In Hand Family Restaurant, Miller’s Smorgasbord, Dienner’s Country Restaurant and Katie’s Kitchen.

The Cottage holds a queen size bed (with an amazing mattress). The mini kitchenette contains dorm size refrigerator, microwave, and coffee pot. The bathroom in addition to a shower includes a whirlpool tub. The Cottage is fully furnished with high thread count sheets and plush white towels. It is also stocked with dishes and coffee. There is AC and wireless internet but no TV. There are several skylights and plentiful windows in the cottage creating a beautiful atmosphere of space and lighting.

You may arrive anytime after 4 pm on the day of your arrival. There is no need to officially 'check in', the Cottage will be unlocked with key inside. We ask that you depart by 11 AM on your check-out day. If you desire earlier arrival or later check-out, please ask as depending on availability (cleaning time requirements between bookings) we will be happy to accommodate.

If your traveling with another couple, we have another accommodation called The Loft on this same property with VRBO #729114.

Please ask any questions you may have.

Serene, clean and calms you down!

  • 5 of 5

We made a wonderful choice staying here. If you want to enjoy and experience the Amish area, I would select this place. Very clean, decorated beautifully, has everything you need. Calm, serene. Owner answers any questions. It is not too far from the common places, visitors go, but far enough away to experience the serene farmlands of the Amish. If you need to slow down and calm your pace, pick this place. Owner provides a nice list of things to do and places to go. Highly recommended.

Peaceful and relaxing I loved it

  • 5 of 5

It was super peaceful and relaxing! It is well maintained. Would have liked a toaster or toaster oven so I could have eaten more meals in.

Peaceful and Comforting

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay while in this area. The cottage is soo cute and a perfect reminder of a simpler life. I loved the decor, the sounds of the horse and buggies and the morning rooster. Time slowed down which was perfect this time of year.

Tucked away with the Amish

  • 5 of 5

It is a very lovely place. I, however, made the error expecting there to be a kitchenette when there was only a microwave and fridge. If that is ok with you, it is on a quiet street where one can chat with the Amish neighbors and although I am not comfortable with dogs, my travel companion always had treats for them and they preferred him to me. I did enjoy the black one posing for us on a stump as we were leaving one day. I would easily choose to stay there again!
