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.

Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our week at Charlotte and Elvin"s farm. They are very friendly and perfect hosts. The rental is very clean and comfortable. The countryside is so beautiful and quiet. It was relaxing to sit on the porch and watch the world go by. We enjoyed all the animals on the farm, especially the baby chicks.

We would absolutely stay again if we are in the area.

If there is a better place, I have not found it...

  • 5 of 5

Great farm, quiet yet convenient location, but the real charm is Elvin and Charlotte - two of the nicest, most genuine people you are likely to meet. Our kids had a blast running around, playing with the chicks and catching fire flies...My favorite part was sitting on the porch, talking.

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.
