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 twenty 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 Ephrata
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.

Character property with all the modern conveniences
Perfect location with the peace of the countryside but a short drive to shops, restaurants, markets and covered bridges.
Our hosts were wonderful and were happy to answer all our cultural questions. Beds were very comfortable with lovely quilts. We look forward to going back for a further visit.
Beautiful & Comfortable
We had a wonderful 2-night stopover in Ephrata. The accommodations were beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. Highly recommend!
You must stay here
The house was beautiful and the hosts were amazing! When we arrived they showed all the kids the working farm and garden. They took their time and talked with us and answered our questions about the area. The house was very clean and had everything you needed. Everything is very close and the house is so perfect you dont even want to leave property. We took a roadtrip from FL to Maine and we stopped here along the way and this by far was the best days we had. The beds were so comfortable and it was decorated so tastefully. I loved this house!!!!
Great property, great hosts
We had a wonderful stay. The property is as described - roomy, clean, comfortable. Beautiful quilts adorned the beds and the entire apartment had nice touches throughout. We loved the location. It was quiet, peaceful and beautiful.
Our hosts, were likewise terrific. Charlotte was very quick to respond to any questions we had. We were glad we got there early enough to be able to chat with Charlotte a bit and then on the morning we left, we had a wonderful talk with Elvin about their farm.
We had a wonderful weekend.
Country Quiet Stay
Our family enjoyed the blessing of a lovely place to stay for the weekend. The abode was clean, safe, sound and refreshing. We all slept well and enjoyed the country air/atmosphere. Char provided all that we did not bring and we appreciated the hospitality. We only gave it a (4) because of our late choice for our weekend outing, took us out of our way. But it was still worth it! Thank you Char and E!!
Such a beautiful home, great location, and very wonderful host
We completely enjoyed our stay with Charlotte and Elvin. The house is absolutely beautiful. We ha e stayed here twice now and love the addition of the kitchen and larger living area. Charlotte and Elvin truly make you feel at home and welcome. We loved sitting on the front porch and watching the Amish travel down the road. We even had the added surprise of three hot air balloons flying over. We truly felt like old friends returning for a visit and truly enjoyed seeing how much the grandkids have grown and watching them play. Such beautiful country and we will for sure return to visit with our dear friends again.
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.
