Our vision is that this would be place of blessing for couples. Our desire is to honor God's definition of marriage
Located just off the beaten path near the village of Gap, you'll find this cute getaway nestled in the quiet, among mostly Amish farms and businesses. This is a fully remodeled and tastefully decorated escape. It whispers romance, relaxation, and renewal.
You can eat on the back deck, relax in the hot tub and count the stars, or sit on the patio and enjoy the view of the tastefully landscaped backyard with a small pond and or watch the neighoring Amish children play.
In the stone basement an old original fireplace and comfy sofa beckons you to sit by the fire. The romantic bedroom suite features a comfortable king-size bed with a partial canopy. The fully equipped kitchen makes in house meal preparation easy. This is an ideal place for honeymoons and anniversaries, and truly a place you'll want to come back to. The vaulted bedroom ceiling with exposed beams and skylight is very distinctive.
This historic cottage is part of Spring Wood Organic Farm which is a 220 acre third generation Mennonite family farm operated by Roman and Lucy Stoltzfoos with the help of their eleven children. Most days you will see cattle and other animals peacefully grazing on well kept pastures nearby. All this is within 20 minutes of Lancaster's main tourist area, many good shopping malls, and excellent restaurants.

Roman and Lucy Stoltzfoos are operating Spring Wood farm for over 32 years which is a 3rd generation Mennonite family farm where Roman was born and raised. They were married on a bright sunny day in July 1978, near Iowa city, Iowa where most of Lucy's family still lives. After more than three years on a church mission near Charlottesville Va we were needed on the Home farm in Lancaster County Pa. So after working for dad one year we took over the dairy and were kept busy since raising our family in the Garden Spot. Eleven children and eight grandchildren later we are still kept busy on this 220 acre organic dairy and turkey farm. We also run 2500 layers that are free range grass fed happy hens. We enjoy sharing our slice of the country and some choice farm raised foods with cottage guests. Healthy children, Healthy food and Healthy marriages are the missions of Spring Wood Organic Farm. We want couples to be renewed as they pullback from busy schedules and take time to love up on each other and bask in the blessing and fulfillment of the true marriage covenant. It is a gift from God and one of His choice creations.
Roman or Lucy purchased this cottage in 2002
We enjoyed over the years of our marriage getting away as a couple to romantic little retreats and when we acquired this property with a small run down little house on it we thought of perhaps turning into a romantic getaway which would be a retreat for couples. It is refreshing to see the many that could benefit from their time here. We have enjoyed making romantic dreams come true for couples and love to host those interested in the blessing of romance.
You will be able to relax and really spend quality time together. There are books, tapes, romantic games, CDs, and DVDs here for your learning and enjoyment. There is something for everyone and you could spend several days or more here without becoming bored. Our desire is to honor the purpose for which God created marriage! Our goal is that you would be bonded in a new and refreshing way as you rest and relax at the cottage.
My husband n I stayed here for our 6th anniversary. We loved it!!!!! Very clean and private. The owners were helpful and he called and stopped up a bit to make sure we enjoyed our stay. The décor was nice the snacks were great! Had candles lit and a very cozy romantic atmosphere the minute we walked in the door!! The hot tub was AWESOME in 5* weather. Enjoyed the many good books on Marriage and the GOD focus!! Was a blessing for us to just get away and be focus on our marriage!! Left feeling very blest and refreshed!!! Would definitely recommend this wonderful place!! Already looking forward to coming back.
My husband and I stayed here for our 8th wedding anniversary and we fell in love! With this place and with each other. The attention to details really make the place, along with all of the activities just for couples. It is such a beautiful place. We came away refreshed and renewed and will be back again! <3
This is the place where Jim and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary. We were there this week and LOVED every minute! Off the beaten, tourist trail and smack dab in the middle of Amish country! BEAUTIFUL, PEACEFUL and WONDERFUL! We can't wait to go back!

My husband and I were looking for a romantic get-away and we couldn't have picked a more perfect rental. Roman and Lucy go out of their way to pay attention to every detail and it shows the moment you walk in the door. As soon as you step inside, the busyness of your life melts away and you have found a place of rest, relaxation, renewal, and romance.
We had a wonderful time and can't wait to have the chance to go back again.
Thank you Roman and Lucy for everything! God Bless You!
Our stay at the Little Stone Cottage really could not of been any better. The attention to detail and all that is offered to be able to experience a wonderful, romantic time of renewal with my husband was such a blessing. We have never stayed at a place that was so completely focused on the importance of romance in a marriage. Sometimes we get so caught up in just living life that we forget to take time to slow down and give our marriages the attention that they deserve. Our stay at the cottage helped to remind us of how important it is to nourish our relationship and just how precious the gift of marriage is. After 36 years of marriage the flame is still burning bright! The Little Stone Cottage is truly an extraordinary place. We are already looking forward to our next visit.
