Overview

About the property

This home has 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, generous living space and a pool (Sleeps 9)

Located in the heart of Amish country, just minutes from major tourist attractions, professionally landscaped Vintage House will not disappoint. Interested in taking the kids to Dutch Wonderland or Strasburg Railroad? Or visiting Sight & Sound Theaters, Kitchen Kettle Village or American Music Theater? Or getting some great shopping deals at Tanger or Rockvale Outlets or the quaint village of Intercourse? All these and more are just a short drive from our home! When you come home for the night, kick back with a cool dip in our in-ground pool (Memorial Day to Labor Day) and enjoy some outdoor grilling on our beautiful back patio with easy pool access.

Our home is perfect for families or small groups looking for a great place to connect in the heart of Amish country. Our two-story home is undergoing some major renovations to the entire first floor in February, 2018 including all new furniture, flooring and appliances. The upstairs was updated just a few years ago. Our family works hard to keep this home up to date and we are sure you will find the home to be very clean and comfortable for the duration of your stay.

Vintage House is fully furnished and has a full kitchen, a dining area, family room, and living room with additional sofas and a 51" smart TV that is Netflix ready. Free wi-fi is of course available throughout the home. There are some toys for the young kids, and a powder/laundry room on the first floor. Upstairs there are four neatly arranged bedrooms, one of which is a 'suite' with a queen-sized bed and full bath. The second bedroom has a queen bed. The third bedroom is behind the second one and also attached to the hallway bathroom. It has a full-sized bed. The fourth bedroom has a 'twin over full' bunk bed.

The pool is just off the patio and is private & very clean. The kids or kids at heart will enjoy the diving board and slide and various pool toys available. There is also a covered patio area in addition to open patio space at the pool so adults can have a comfortable place to watch the kids or breaks for snacks can happen easily.

Vintage House's location on historic Lincoln Highway means two things: first it means easy access to and from the best of what Lancaster County Amish country has to offer; second it means there is some traffic noise. The vast majority of our guests find this quite manageable, but please review other guests' comments to help you gauge this.

Our home has historically been booked every summer night so if you are interested in Vintage House and you see dates available, now is the time to reserve your spot at Vintage House! And did we mention the special bike-tour discount package available to all our guests? Just check in with us for details about how to get this great deal.

We look forward to hosting you at Vintage House!

About Tim & Jen Rogers

Tim & Jen Rogers are the owners and caretakers of this property. We live just a few miles east of the property and enjoy sharing Lancaster County with our guests each year. Our friends, Dave & Lil Nissley, previous owners, sold this property to us in 2017 and we are enjoying the chance to continue the great tradition of hospitality they've established over the last decade.

Our three children help us take care of our home and in the process are learning many helpful things about running a vacation rental like this. We want to provide a home to our guests that we are proud of and we hope you'll enjoy your chance to stay at Vintage House! We look forward to the opportunity to host you!

Why Tim & Jen Rogers chose Paradise

This property is located right in the heart of Amish Country and provides a great space for families to unwind and enjoy their stay. Our guests have really enjoyed coming "home" after a long day of exploring Lancaster county and cooling off in the pool, relaxing on the back patio, firing up the grill or relaxing inside in the air-conditioning.

What makes this house unique

Staying here will put you minutes away from meandering drives through bucolic Lancaster County. Travel north or south from this property will provide you with beautiful farm vistas which invite you to slow down and enjoy the simpler things of life.

For a change of pace, consider a 20 minute drive into Lancaster City for a wide range of dining and entertainment options. For the shoppers in the family, famous Rockvale Square & Tanger Outlets are just a few minutes away. We can help you find some great local attractions that fit your party's interests!

Finally, you should know that by staying at Vintage House you are helping two causes that are important to us as a family. First, a portion of Vintage House proceeds go to supporting a child growing up in poverty in the Dominican Republic. Odreily is her name and by staying at Vintage you are helping her get an education and gain access to basic medical care. Secondly at Vintage House we support the Factory Ministries, a faith-based social services organization committed to helping those in our local community develop the resources necessary to get out of poverty. Thank you for helping these causes that are close to our heart!

Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a sisters trip to Lancaster and stayed at the Vintage House! It is a nice size house with lots and lots of room, great for families! The beds were very comfy and the place was very clean! Tim and Jen were awesome hosts and I knew I could get a response from them immediately if anything had gone wrong! All of the sisters agreed that if we ever come back to Lancaster we would want to stay here! Thanks for a lovely home and making our trip great!

Beautiful home!

We had a wonderful visit. This home was perfect for our needs. We especially loved the kitchen and living room areas. They are spacious enough for a big family to visit together comfortably.

Awesome New Years Getaway with family!!!!! (7 people)

  • 5 of 5

We rented the place for New Years and will rent it again!!!! Lots of space and clean house. All the bedrooms are huge and bathrooms are spacious as well, the kitchen is big and very well equipped. We rented the place for 7 people but it can accommodate easily 3 more people sleeping comfortably ... The owner "Tim" is a great guy and consummate host. He responded quickly when we had questions. Also, we got some snow during the stay and Tim was there early morning to clean up the snow for us, he made sure we are safe and that everything is going well.

For the price, you could not ask for better locale!!!

Thank you and Happy New Year!

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Vintage House for a few days to attend a family wedding. It was great to have a place where we could stay together and enjoy family time. Tim and Jen were very helpful and available when we needed them. The house was near shopping and restaurants. It is an older house that has been updated with nice bathrooms and kitchen. We were very pleased

Gracious hosts and spacious home

  • 5 of 5

The house has so much room. The first floor is basically two large rooms with lots of seating and the backyard has even more places to congregate. Tim and Jen were such fantastic hosts, welcoming us with a local treat and accommodating our schedule. Thank you so much for providing a homebase for a wonderful weekend!
