Overview

About the property

Experience a Peaceful, Authentic Farm in Lovely Lancaster County.

The Guesthouse is part of our large farm house. It is a private area on the second floor with two bedrooms, a sitting/dining area, and bathroom. We now have a small kitchen with stove/ oven, apt. size fridge, sink, microwave, coffee maker, toaster. We are located in the heart of Amish country in Lancaster County away from the hustle and bustle, where you will hear the sound of horse and buggies. A one room school house is next door and full of activity during school months with the neighborhood children. The towns of Intercourse and Bird-In-Hand are only 10-15 minutes away.

About Charlotte Wenger

As Mennonites, we have lived all but two years of our married life, and raised our four children here on the farm. My father-in-law Noah Wenger purchased the farm for my husband and I before we were married. We have enjoyed the beautiful view and wonderful farm life with our children, and now our eighteen grandchildren who love to come and play on the farm. My daughters and daughter in law still love to come and walk the lovely, low-traffic roads.

Charlotte Wenger purchased this farmhouse in 1980

Why Charlotte Wenger chose Dutch Country

We raise chickens and steers, and overlook beautiful farmland. If you want the true experience of Amish Country, it's here! You could spend the day just sitting on the front porch overlooking the meadows, and watching the Amish and Mennonite neighbors living life, and traveling the road. If you like to walk, jog, or ride bike, you'll enjoy the back roads with very little traffic.

Quiet, peaceful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, peacuful property that is actually nicer than shown by the pictures. There has been some rearranging done of the layout and there are 2 very good sized bedrooms with queen beds, a living area with loveseat, TV and eat in table, full bathroom and they are in the process of installing a kitchenette with a full sized oven/stove, good sized fridge, cabinets, countertops and sink. It is actually much nicer than the picture reflect!

Only piece of advice I would give to families with small children is bring a gate with you :) It says in their description on VRBO that it is on the 2nd floor but I guess I missed that part. We had to blockade the stairs with the bench from the kitchen seating area so our 15 month old didn't fall down the stairs.

It was a great experience and we would recommend it highly!

Wonderful stay at a farm!

  • 5 of 5

Me and my daughter had a wonderful time here! The apartment is so cozy and comfortable that we didn't want to leave. It is so wonderful to wake up listening to the birds, cows and the sound of horses!! Everything is great! From the comfortable beds, the comfy couch, and all the extra details like books, coffee, sugar and cream, disposable plates and cups, cutlery, napkins, etc. that you really feel at home. The most enjoyable part was meeting Charlotte and Elvin! Really nice, warm people! Thank you for your hospitality! I recommend this place to everyone!!

Enjoy the drive through beautiful farmland! We're located off the beaten path, and only fifteen minutes from the Amish country of Intercourse and Bird-In-Hand. Take a peek in the chicken house on our farm, and maybe even pet a steer. Relish the view of cattle grazing in the meadow, and the horse and buggy traffic traveling down the road. There is a one room school house located beside our home. During school months, watch Amish and Mennonite children at play as you sit in our back yard. You'll experience the culture as you travel the neighborhood and savor the view from the front porch.
