About the Property
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4-6)
Sit on the porch and watch the Amish buggies clip-clop down Main Street, listen to the bells chime from a nearby church, and enjoy flowers in shades of yellow, white and blue, which lend a French Country feeling to the outside of the cottage.
Amish and Mennonite farms provide plenty of fresh produce and there's lots of shopping in nearby Adamstown, known as the Antiques Capital of the USA. There are five local one-room school houses and covered bridges. Outlets in Reading and Lancaster are a short drive, as well as museums, Amish attractions and great hiking and biking.
Small Town USA: The Olde Stone Cottage is in a small town (1200 people) that has many activities. There's a Terre Hill Days celebration in July - great bands, outhouse races, fireworks, lots of food - a town-wide Yard Sale, Harvest Parade and Haunted Trail in the fall, Lunch in the Park every Friday late July into September, and lots more.
A Shopper's Paradise: Whether it is outlet shopping (Lancaster has Tanger and Rockville, and Reading has the big VF Outlet Center), antique shopping (ten minutes away at the Antiques Capital of the USA, Amish quilts and crafts, or Art galleries (downtown Lancaster), Terre HIll is in the center of the spoke for shopping of all kinds. We'll be glad to share our favorite places with you.
Lancaster County: Terre Hill is centrally located in Lancaster County - there are buggies that travel right past the cottage, one-room schoolhouses and covered bridges surround the town, rolling farmland, roadside stands at the farms, local craft, quilt and furniture shops. A huge antigue center is ten minutes north of town and Weaverland Auction is 1 mile from town - where the farmers and nurseries bring their produce and plants to be sold. It's a great area to cycle.
The Olde Stone Cottage was featured on Sweet Retreats....and won! We're proud to be inspected, licensed and legal. The cottage has passed all local safety and zoning regulations.

Lancaster, Dutch Country, Pennsylvania, USA (In quaint Terre Hill - the smallest of small towns!). Terre Hill is a perfect place to stay - a quiet, small town that boasts tennis courts, a wonderful park, two restaurants and a convenience store - all within walking distance of the cottage and surrounded by Amish farms. Nearby Shady Maple provides a great farm market and the largest smorgasbord in the county for great Pennsylvania Dutch food.
Other Activities: shopping, mini golf, biking, hot air ballooning, Art Gallery located at the inn
Golf: There are 5 golf courses within a 20-minute drive.
Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: My husband and I have been operating The Artist's Inn, a bed and breakfast just five houses from The Olde Stone Cottage for 20 years. We love meeting people from all over the world. But we only have three rooms at the inn and couldn't accommodate children or bigger groups. The Olde Stone Cottage is child friendly and our Carriage House can accommodate more if needed....including a bedroom and bath on the first floor.
Why the Owner Chose Terre Hill, PA, USA:
Our Inn was originally built by Sam Watts...actually he owned much of the land that is now Terre Hill. He donated land for the local church, school, was on the board of the local bank, and was generally quite a great guy. He also owned a cigar-making factory, one of many in town. The locally grown tobacco was used for the outer leaves of the cigars. His grandson owned the local store...which stood on the land now occupied by our cottage. We always admired this little house and when it came up for sale, we converted it to a vacation rental. To see the story of the remodel, check out The Artist's Inn website.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Terre Hill is a quiet town, but just minutes away from Adamstown - filled with antiques....or busy Intercourse with bustling shops and Kitchen Kettle Village. It's surrounded by farms so fresh produce can be had three seasons a year in any direction. And Shady Maple - whether you go to the farmer's market, gift shop, or smorgasbord is a treat unto itself. Folks also like to explore the area on bikes or by hiking.
