  • 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."

  • The best summer vacation!

    "A few months back, I rented this house for a week with my two boys and their friends while we were on vacation. We all had an absolutely fabulous time. They enjoyed playing in the gaming area while I relaxed with a good book in the hot tub. The porch, swimming pool, and fire pit were also great hangout spots; on our last night there we roasted s'mores!"

  • Wonderful vacation

    "My husband and I enjoyed a week long stay at Lake Shore Escape 1. This was our second vacation spent there and we felt so blessed to enjoy the cottage again. The views from the bedroom French doors each morning of the lake is just amazing. We also enjoyed the lake view from the many windows in the living room and the French doors there. The deck was just the most relaxing place to sit and watch the lake, read, sip wine, and enjoy the landscape. We visited several wineries in the area and enjoyed sitting on the upper deck and watching the sunset with a glass of wine. I like to take pictures of the sunset and the ones I took at the cottage were just the best ever. We had a cook out and had our family visit for that. Our grandkids so enjoyed the fire pit and making s'mores and just running around the yard and playing. The cottage had everything we needed and was spotless. It was just so relaxing to be there. We did not want to leave! Our hosts gave us tickets to the North East garden tour and we were able to visit some of the most beautiful gardens in North East. We met some of the most gracious people while visiting the gardens on the tour. You can view the vineyards across the road and we enjoyed walking the property. Thank you, Leonidas for everything, we look forward to another stay!"
