Churchtown Manor Guesthouse is located 15 minutes from the village of Intercourse, in the heart of Amish Country. Staying at Churchtown Manor is an opportunity to experience a peaceful Mennonite farm with Amish farms all around.
Churchtown Manor was formerly an Amish farm which was purchased by the owners great-grandparents in 1937. The farmhouse was built in the 1800's and has been remodeled recently. The Guesthouse was originally built for the owners grandfather after his son got married and took over the farm. The apartment has since been occupied by the owners parents as well.
Among the Amish and Mennonites, attached apartments like the Guesthouse are commonly known as the 'Dawdy House'. ('Dawdy' is the word for 'Father' in the Pennsylvania Dutch language that the Amish speak.) Often when a son takes over the farm, the father 'Dawdy' will move into the apartment so that the son has room to raise his family and also so that the father can semi-retire.
These apartments are also sometimes occupied by a newly married son or daughter. When you stay with the Stoltzfus' in their 'Dawdy House', you are actually able to experience part of the Amish and Mennonite culture!
The Stoltzfus' would love to have you stay with them and enjoy their 100 acre, organic dairy farm which boasts beautiful views of the countryside. When you stay at Churchtown Manor and experience the peaceful setting, let your mind take you back to what this farm may have been like 100 years ago!
The Stoltzfus' own Lena's Victorian Luxuries in Bird-In-Hand, a gift shop that will also take you back 100 years! The Guesthouse is decorated with items from their shop. You will definitely want to take a trip to the store to purchase a gift for that friend you left at home or a treat for yourself.

The home was great and we had a great time. The home is very large, has everything we could need andis in a great location. Lena was totaly wonderful and helpful in all respects.
One week is not enough to spend in this area. One day taking an Amish tour, buggy ride; a second day driving around seeing the beautiful countryside, appreciating all the animals, and the covered bridges - make sure to see the Pool Forge bridge and park, very close; one day shopping at all the local outlets; one day to Gettysburg, and one day to "railroad" at Strasburg (museum, train ride and model train museum). Endless fun to do for all.
And did i mention the food - shofly pie (Bird In Hand Bakery) and ice cream (Lapps Farm) and all the smorgesbords.....
A great vacation.
Simply amazing!!! No words
Very welcoming people. Beautiful view! Very relaxing place!
We had a wonderful time staying on the farm. The apartment/house was impeccable -- decorated so well with antique charm and comfort. Every year, I bring my mom and aunt up to shop and sightsee. We loved having our own plush bedrooms and space together versus staying in a hotel. The homeowner couldn't have been more gracious. The scenery was breathtaking and it was so peaceful only hearing crickets, the occasional moo, and the clip-clop of an Amish horse and buggy. Beautiful! We hated to leave and have already scheduled our return next year and will be adding days!
The home was wonderful. We arrived extremely late but everything was ready for us, fresh flowers and all. We would definately stay there again if in the area and would recommend it for others. The property was beautiful and the views were incredible. It was an extremely relaxing and welcoming home. The home was stocked with dishes, linens, etc. and they even had new toothbrushes, supplies, etc. in case you forgot anything. It was great for families or just adults.
What an awesome week staying on the Peaceful, Organic Farm. Everything on this listing was accurate. The apartment was clean plus the beds were great for a restful nights sleep. Lena was the best, such a beautiful person. My family repeatedly said this was the best weeks trip that we had been on. Really a peaceful, beautiful area to visit. We will return in the fall to see the harvesting of the crops.
This was a perfect location while we were in a Lancaster for our sons wedding. Quiet and peaceful. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The host family are friendly but non intrusive!
