We just spent a long weekend at Meadowbrook Farm and enjoyed our stay very much. The house is nicely decorated and furnished. It has the charm and style expected of an old house but has the modern conveniences you would also expect and want in the kitchen and bathrooms. The bedrooms were all nicely done and the beds were cozy and comfortable. There is a washer/dryer in the upstairs bathroom which was great to have. Also, the backyard/patio is very nice and we enjoyed sitting out there taking in the country atmosphere and fall foliage.
The owners left us a handwritten letter welcoming us to the house, as well as some fruit from a local orchard which was a nice touch. In addition, they provided a very detailed manual with instructions about the house, TVs, highlights/attractions in the area, restaurants, etc. which was very helpful and much appreciated. We were surprised to learn that there was limited access to live TV channels (I think we could access about 5 channels) due to, I believe, no cable/poor dish access for the area. Although we didn’t plan to watch TV all weekend, we did want to watch the baseball championship game which wasn’t on one of the channels available, so we were a bit disappointed at first. However, this quickly turned out to be a total non-issue. There is WiFi in the house and we were able to watch the baseball game live (and other sports events) that we couldn’t get on the house TVs by connecting to our service on our laptop. Also, to provide the best TV-viewing alternative, the owners have LG Smart TVs and we could access Hulu, Netflix, and many other online tv/video services along with the accessible live TV channels. So, when we wanted to watch TV, we were more than satisfied.
We found the location of the house to be very suitable for us. Our main destination for this trip was Gettysburg which was only about a ½ hour drive. Carlisle is about 10 minutes or so away and was a charming town and had several good restaurants to choose from.
All in all, the house is beautiful, inviting and well-maintained. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to others.
