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.

AN EXTREMELY PEACEFUL AND WELCOMING GETAWAY.

  • 5 of 5
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.

AWESOME!!

  • 5 of 5
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!

MEMORIES TO LAST A LIFETIME..

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I along with our two young daughters and my parents enjoyed a 4-day stay at the guesthouse. It was so peaceful and relaxing. The house had plenty of space for the 6 of us and our little dog. The owner and her family were so welcoming and even provided us milk from their farm. Can't wait to come back again someday. We love the ability to cook our own food and the kitchen was fully stocked with everything you would need. There is no cable TV but there is a DVD player and WI-FI. My kids were had so much on the farm to keep them busy that they didn't even miss TV. The guesthouse is far away from the hustle and bustle of the Lancaster tourist spots but a very convenient drive to all the attractions. I can't say enough about our wonderful stay at Churchtown Manor Guesthouse.

FUN AND RELAXING TRIP.

  • 5 of 5
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!

THE PERFECT SPOT FOR A FAMILY VACATION

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!
