GUESTHOUSE ON A PEACEFUL, ORGANIC FARM

Lancaster Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-6)

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.

We had a wonderful time on this beautiful farm. It was so relaxing and our boys really enjoyed the animals. Our hosts were warm and friendly. There was plenty of room for Grandma and Pop to come for a night too! Highly recommended. We are looking forward to a return visit in the fall!

I took my mom, daughter, and my two dogs on vacation. I couldn't have asked for more it was really relaxing and peaceful. A great place to reconnect with family. Next time I go back I have to check out Lena's shop. Thank you for everything!

Our stay in beautiful Amish country

We found this place online and absolutely loved it. It is on a peaceful Mennonite farm in a gorgeous farm setting surrounded by well kept farms and country life. The apartment was very clean, well maintained with kitchen amenities, two bathrooms and three bedrooms. The listing photos did reflect the apartments' appearance and amenities. The owner was most helpful and we will recommend it to friends and relatives. We loved driving around to see the beautiful farms, we liked the Amish shops and busineses and also really appreciated the Sight-Sound presentation on "Noah" in Lancaster.

We had such a nice time staying on Lena and her family's farm. We were looking to get out of the city and unplug for a few days. On a whim, we looked on VRBO for rentals in Dutch Country, PA...the stars must have aligned. The Stoltzfus' guest house was only available for the 3 days we were looking for! Our kids, 3 and 6 had a blast playing with the other children on the farm and learning how a dairy farm works. We got to feed baby calves and drink fresh organic cow's milk! Both Lena's family and the Amish family that works on the farm were friendly and welcoming. As mentioned in the other reviews, we had plenty of privacy in the guest house, even though it's attached to the main house. The farm is very centrally located and is only a 20 minute drive from many fun activities. I highly recommend a visit to Strasburg to ride the old steam engine pulled trained as well as the Choo Choo Barn. Lunch at Katie's is also a must as well as breakfast at Jenny's Diner. Our kids were in tears when we had to leave and were asking when we could come back. We are already planning another visit next summer. Thanks Stotlzfus' for your hospitality!

During a hectic trip we were able to get a last-minute reservation at the farm. Even though we only got to stay for one night, we left feeling refreshed and inspired. This is truly a special place with friendly people, lovely animals, and beautiful surroundings. The old farm dog acted as escort while we walked with our dog, making sure we knew our way and didn't chase the farm cat too much.
