Relax on our 9th-generation family farm in a charming 2-bedroom 1850s-era cottage with cornfield views. Feed treats to our friendly goats and explore the farm. Or just relax on the glider on the shady front porch. During the summer and fall months, it is nestled privately between cornfields and a field of Christmas trees. Perfect for a romantic getaway or a family vacation.
The two front doors are traditional German architecture of the 1800's time period. One door would have been for guests. The family would have used the other door to come and go. We no longer use both doors. The John Jacob House is one home that comfortably sleeps 6 people. The home is not shared with other guests.
The John Jacob House is situated on a farm but close to many tourist attractions, parks, and golf courses. The house is centrally located in the heart of all Lancaster County has to offer. It is minutes away from Lancaster City, Strasburg, Columbia, American Music Theatre, Sight & Sound, Millersville University, Franklin & Marshall, the outlets, and many more popular locations.
The eat-in kitchen is stocked with the essentials including tableware, cookware, and a microwave. We also provide coffee and tea to brew in the Keurig. The laundry room has a full-size washer and dryer.
The living room features a full-size sofa bed, plenty of comfortable seating, and a tv/dvd. We also provide games and reading material for family fun or down time. A sitting area with tv/dvd, two bedrooms (queen bed and two twin beds), and a bath with shower are located on the second floor.
We provide wifi, linens, pillows, and towels. We also provide snacks to feed the goats. You’re welcome to gather fresh eggs from our chickens.
And don’t worry if you forget something. You can find a variety of stores, restaurants, a movie theater, and Planet Fitness nearby.
