CIRCA 1790 STONE FARMHOUSE ON 10 ACRES OF YOUR OWN PRIVATE GREEN SPACE

Lancaster Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8-9)

Beautiful country setting on 10 acres down a quarter mile lane with no visible neighbors! The property is surrounded by farm fields and forest. The house is a restored 200+ year old stone farmhouse with original random-width hardwood floors throughout. Master bedroom has a queen bed, second bedroom has a queen-size bed, third bedroom has a full/double-size bed and a full-size crib, and the fourth bedroom has twin-size bunk beds.

Perfect for a quiet romantic get away or a fun family vacation where the kids can run and play outside with no danger of passing cars. Enough space for a wedding or a family reunion out on the lawn!

Great location close to Lancaster County/Amish attractions, Dutch Wonderland, outlet shopping, 20+ museums, hot-air balloon rides, Strasburg Railroad and the list goes on.

Need a break from your busy life?: Find yourself listening to the birds and the crickets as you relax in a rocking chair on the front porch overlooking an expanse of green lawn and trees.

No neighbors, no buildings, no traffic - just peace and quiet for you to savor.

Lancaster County Amish Country: Perfect location to check out all the local Amish attractions and enjoy the drive through the rolling farmland to get there! The property is very private, yet is only 15 minutes from the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Shop local businesses selling quilts, antiques, hand-made furniture and countless farm stands to get all the fresh produce you can eat!

30 minutes to Dutch Wonderland, Lancaster Outlet Shopping, American Music Theatre, Sight & Sound Theatre, Strasburg Railroad, Reading Outlet Shopping and so much more.

1 hour, 15 minutes to Hershey Park and Chocolate World.

1 hour to Philadelphia.

Two parks within two minutes of the property: Historic Poole Forge is a township owned park with a great children's playground, pavilion and picnic benches for a cookout, and a 150 year old historic covered bridge that you can drive though and is great for photos with you and your family!

Just up the hill from our home is a county owned park called Money Rocks that has an easy 30-minute hike to the top of the mountain for a gorgeous view of the scenic countryside.

We had a nice, relaxing weekend. The house is beautiful; we hope to own one just like it someday (sooner rather than later!). Thanks and take care. Heather

I grew up in Lancaster County and in this house! I moved away after college and getting married, but returned to the area after having children and spent a year restoring the farmhouse. My husband and I like to restore old homes and we are currently working on a historic inn in Churchtown, PA.

Sharon Krock purchased this farmhouse in 2001

I grew up in this house and we bought it from my parents and restored it. We lived in it for a few years before deciding to rent it out as a vacation rental because we loved the property and house and didn't want to sell it. The only reason we moved out is because we bought another 200+ year old stone home just five minutes away that we are currently restoring.

The area is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet of the countryside, strolling through local parks, watching horse and buggies go by, visiting the numerous historic districts, museums and various Amish and Pennsylvania Dutch attractions in Lancaster County. The property itself is the perfect getaway from hectic lives - you might not want to leave!

RELAXING STAY

  • 5 of 5
This farmhouse was charming and accomodating. It had everything we needed for 4 adults and 3 small children. The kids had a blast on the HUGE swing swet and we all enjoyed roasting marshmallows by the campfire! It was close enough to the Strausburg railroad and Dutch Wonderland. Staying at this "hidden" house made us feel like we really escaped our everyday routines, and managed to relaxed even with the toddlers. We would highly recommend it and would definitely come again!

WONDERFUL VACATION HOME FOR ALL AGES

  • 5 of 5
After staying in this fabulous property last month, my only regret is that we could not stay longer. Our whole family,including 3 children under 8 and my parents, did not want to leave.
There was plenty of room inside the immaculate house for all of us and we enjoyed the rustic charm but also modern kitchen and bathroom. Linens were clean and comfortable and there were more than enough towels for all of us.
We were also happy to have air-conditioning throughout the whole house during 90* weather.
Sharon was very helpful and was always very quick to respond to any questions. She also provided us with a list of local shopping areas and attractions. The supermarket is nearby and had EVERYTHING. We had wonderful Bar-b-ques cooked on the grill and had so much fun lighting fires and toasting marshmallows.
We enjoyed the beautiful countryside and visiting Hersey and Amish farms & a trip on the Strasburg railroad, but we all would have been content just spending all our time enjoying the property. The children LOVED the wooden playground & sandbox underneath the tree, and just running around catching lightening bugs, while we relaxed on the porch, listening to the beautiful songs of the birds in nearby trees. We did not see or hear any cars on this enormous and well-kept property. No worrying about the children running into traffic was wonderful.
We loved the old stone house and have wonderful new memories of our visit and cannot wait to return!!!!!

MAGICAL PROPERTY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed with friends of ours who have two children the same ages as our two children (5 and 3) to celebrate our sons' third birthdays. The house is wonderful and very clean, but the best part is the property. It is absolutely gorgeous, with butterflies and fireflies everywhere. The playground is amazing, and our kids adored it, but there's also a basketball court, a fire pit, and a back patio equipped with a little fireplace and a nice grill. We would definitely recommend this house to families with children, and we hope to stay here again in the future.

We brought my family together to celebrate my mom's 70th birthday here. The grounds were quiet & beautiful. My kids (7 & 11) played endlessly on the playscape. All in all, we had a lovely time. I would definitely recommend the farmhouse to others.

WONDERFUL WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
Home and Property are beautiful! Sharon was a pleasure to work with also. The home had everything we needed and very clean. My 3 children had a FANTASTIC time running and playing all through the large property all to themselves. They actually did not want to leave into town so we can sightsee! I especially loved sitting there relaxing watching them enjoy themselves! The play set and basketball court were a plus. Thank you Sharon.

Rolling hills of farmland surround the area. You'll drive by pastures of cows, horses and enjoy the view on the way to the property, which is in the small town of Narvon, PA, where there are no traffic lights!

Just up the hill from the property is Money Rocks County park with a short walk to a gorgeous overlook. Also a great township park, Historic Poole Forge, 2 minutes from the house with a covered bridge, great playground and picnic areas along the Conestoga Creek.

30 minutes from Lancaster, 30 minutes from Reading, 1 hour from Hershey, 1 hour from Philadelphia, 1 hour from Harrisburg, 2 hours from Baltimore, 2.5 hours from New York City, 3 hours from Washington D.C. - we're in the center of everything!
