PEACFUL WINTER HIDEAWAY

  • 5 of 5
What a perfect weekend. We have 9 children and 7 grandchildren and were looking for an escape to a quiet place of peace for our 32nd anniversary, and that is exactly what we found. It snowed some each day we were there, deer came right up to the cabin and meandered across the snow. We stayed in , read, looked out at the snow and took catnaps off and on. Oh how restful, just what we needed. We are looking to return in the summer when all the white will be green.Thanks so much for this great place.- The Wilsons, South Jersey Shore

PERFECT WINTER RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Our family (4 adults) chose the Carriage Barn for a unique, memorable Christmas in a year when we all needed a restful change of pace. The online photos and descriptions were completely accurate, and we felt right at home from the moment we pulled up. John's warm friendly welcome made us feel like friends and Becky's tasteful Christmas decorations added a special touch. Everything was right at hand for a fully restful, peaceful, enjoyable winter retreat. The deer, rabbits, owls, birds, and "perfect Christmas morning snow" added to the memorable time. We are eager to return in other seasons to enjoy this beautiful barn, our new friends, and its lovely surroundings.

WONDERFUL, RELAXING SETTING!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a great time staying in this beautifully renovated barn! We had a long stay (11 nights) and enjoyed every minute of it! The barn is equipped with everything you might need. It is quiet and private, and is in a lovely country setting, yet close to all the sights you may want to visit in the area. We spent lazy mornings there and then headed out to lunch and to explore. We recommend
this location for those wanting to visit pa dutch country or those just wanting to escape to a beautiful and serene spot!

THE PERFECT ESCAPE FROM NYC

  • 5 of 5
The Blue Heron cabin was the perfect getaway for me and my honey. It was serene and gorgeous, even when it rained. It felt as if time slowed down and for once, we were able to take in life's beauties. If you've never had a chance to sleep outside on a hammock, well here's your chance. You will not be disappointed.

Becky and John were welcoming and they kept things so simple for booking our trip that it was hard to believe there wasn't more to it.

If you're searching for peace, this is your place :)
