  • Hated to leave; can't wait to go back

    "When my husband and I were planning a weekend getaway for an early celebration of his birthday, I wanted a hotel with a pool, nightlife and restaurants. He was looking for something else and found the Little Stone Cottage. I am so grateful he did. Owners Roman and Lucy have designed this lovely cottage with couples in mind. The home is immaculate and when we arrived there were rose petals scattered up the stairs, leading to the bedroom and the four-poster king-sized bed. On the main floor is a spacious kitchen, small living room with a double recliner and a dining area. A hot tub awaits outside on the deck. In the basement we found a gas fireplace, a massage table and a comfy couch. What were those sturdy hooks in the ceiling for? To hold the hammock, of course! In the garage were two bicycles and a pool table. Wooden rocking chairs on the front porch were the perfect place to watch Amish families go by in their buggies. The refrigerator was stocked with home-made granola and grape nuts (these are not Post Grape Nuts, by which I mean they are not only edible but also delicious and they won't break your teeth), as well as eggs and milk from Roman and Lucy's farm. The milk was raw milk from grass-fed cows. I have never tasted milk like this. Can I go back to my store-bought fat-free milk? Not happily. Roman's manual for the Little Stone Cottage is very comprehensive and, like the house itself, is designed to promote and enhance intimacy. People who live in "the world" might find this off-putting (we did not) but should keep in mind that many of his visitors come from a much more sheltered and insular environment and have not attended schools where sex-ed was on the curriculum from the fourth grade on. The manual also lists suggestions for things to do, and we did almost all of them. We also were invited to watch as the farm's 200 cows were milked. Fascinating. The cottage is right in the middle of Lancaster County's 5,000 farms, half of them owned by the Amish. The views are breathtaking and the natural smells (yes, I mean manure) are not intolerable -- and not an issue at all inside the cottage. My husband and I have been married for 28 years and we feel closer after this weekend than we have in a long time. Because we are caring for my mother at our home, it's not easy to schedule time away but we are already looking at dates for our next visit."

  • Perfect.

    "This was a perfect spot to converge upon for Thanksgiving. The house is great - comfortable, well-stocked, and a really great design. The property manager is helpful and accommodating. We couldn't have asked for anything more."

  • Wonderful Weekend

    "My wife and I meet annually with two other couples , somewhere in the USA,for conversation, sightseeing, good food and comfortable accommodations. This year was my turn to nominate a site. I chose Gettysburg, a place I never get tired off, and the Seventh Heaven Lodge. The other two couples are world travelers and nothing about this trip disappointed them. The Lodge is ideally situated about 15 minutes out of Gettysburg in the beautiful Pennsylvania countryside.The pictures cannot do it justice as one cannot capture the beauty of sitting out on the spacious screened porch, at the end or a very active day, enjoying the serenity of the surrounding woods. The lodge itself is immaculate, well appointed, and user friendly, with lots of interesting spaces for "alone time". Indeed, I am in the process of trying to arrange a return trip with family member later this year, including several grandsons who have long held an interest in visiting this historic part of out country."
