Pros and Cons

  • 3 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 27, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
Having just returned from a recent stay at the Vintage Garden Home I would like to give my opinion. The pros to this home are: it is very spacious, there is more than enough room for everyone to spread out. There is lots of new and modern furniture for seating we loved the lazy boy type chairs in the kitchen area. With two large dining tables there is room for everyone to eat at the same time. We always had plenty of hot water and the beds were very comfortable. When we were there the pool was closed but there is a very nice area out there to sit and enjoy it. It is very easy to find and close to shopping, attractions and one of our favourite past times is just to drive around the beautiful countryside. Although I wasn't the one that made the booking the girl that did found Dave very easy to deal with, answering all emails very promptly. When we arrived a day early, he had no problem with us staying in the home that night.

And now the cons, as many people have mentioned it is directly on the very busy Route 30 with a constant parade of tractor trailers going by at all hours of the day and night. The first night we were there at 2am the State Police had a road block set up in front of the house and this went on for about an hour or more. The next night the neighbours had a very noisy party and the third night the police were back again with the radar set up close by so that they would be pulled over directly in front of the home again. Also, there are train tracks close by and the train goes by at night. I understand that this is not something that Dave can control, but I just wanted to mention it. Although the house is "surface clean" it really needs to have a cleaning service come in and go from top to bottom. There has also been some crack filling and things of that nature done that need to be painted. In the room with the bunks the smoke does not have a cover on it and there are no batteries in it. Also in that room and the master bedroom there are portable fans, that you would never turn on due to the dirt build up. The night we arrived there was a bad odor to the home almost musty smelling, we left the windows open that night and the next day and it seemed to go away. However it was still in the air as my allergies bothered me the whole time I was there. I understand that some people might find this review a bit harsh but I just felt that these items needed to be pointed especially for those paying the $300+ rate in the summer.
Owner's Response: Thank you for this review and I do appreciate the time you spent to detail some issues. You are correct that we cant control the noise from the road and I am sorry that the police had randomly selected the parking lot across the road that weekend. I am glad to know of the details inside the house because since we don't have the opportunity to stay ourselves sometimes these things are never noticed if they are not pointed out by our guests. We really do try to have the house as clean and perfect as our own home and we want your stay to be worth your time and investment. We have just spent a large amount of money updating the heating and cooling system in Sept and this also has exposed some areas that need our attention and TLC. Regards Dave Nissley

Lancaster home with pool

  • Submitted: Aug 16, 2013

If the house could be picked up and moved it would have been great. The house was spotless but it was like sleeping on the truck side of the highway. EXTREMELY noisy both day and night. We enjoyed the backyard and the kids loved the pool. The only thing that annoyed me a little was that after paying $300 a night, I still had to pay a "cleaning" fee and the little notes around the house are not just how to use the air conditioning but your instructions for the cleaning, laundry and taking out of the trash that you're expected to do. I thought I was the one on vacation. If you're not noise sensitive, day or night, I recommend this house for a large group.

Great week away

We just sent a week at this great house. There were 6 adult women ranging in ages and all of us enjoyed our stay. This house has a lot of room for everything. Lots of seating at tables and in living room. Beds were comfortable and linens were a nice quality. The bunkbed room is on the smaller side but was fine for one adult or kids. Bathtubs were amazing and a nice evening treat. The pool is great, bigger then we expected and clean. The patio was also really well done. We had one little issue getting the internet to work and Dave came over immediately and took care of it. This house is on a very busy road but we did not have any issues with that lots of room for parking and turning around. We rent a house every year and we would definitely rent this house again.

Everything was excellent about this property. Location, convenience, and a landlord who cares about making your stay the best it can be..We enjoyed the Amish Country and shopping , and buggy ride . The pool and backyard setup was a big hit with everyone. We did day trips to Hershey Park and Dutch wonderland both of which were a reasonable drive away. We were able to spend quality family time together at the house and enjoy time in the pool and bbq . there was a long front porch where you can sit in the rocking chairs and watch the Amish gallop by in their buggies. the kids had so much fun . We didn't want to leave when our vacation was over and hope that we can return again one day!! Thank you so much for a memorable vacation
