Truly disappointed

  • 1 of 5
We came to this vacation home for a family reunion. We contracted with Lori and Bob based upon the pictures and two reviews of this property. After staying in their home, we are wondering if the previous reviewers stayed in the same property as we did. We were specifically interested in an historic property that also had a pool, which would entertain our three small grandchildren after a day touring and enjoying the beautiful countryside. What we were faced with was a lovely pool, with a deck that hadn't been treated in so many years that the deck had buckled and splintered. We were so worried about the children's safety walking on this old, warped wooden deck. Unfortunately, the condition of the deck carried over to the rest of the property ie: weeds not treated and pulled, peeling wallpaper, musty bathrooms with old, in some cases, rusty fixtures, and most troubling, roaches that were found in the house and in abundance, around the pool. Lori and Bob, at least contract with an exterminator! My children had a wonderful time, because they are children and grandchildren. My husband and I spent a lot of money on a property that is sorely in need of care and improvement and was not worth the money spent.

Owner's Response: It is disappointing to us to learn when a guest is not happy at our vacation home. I wish we were informed of any problems immediately rather than you leave and be disappointed and we never had the opportunity to correct a problem.
However, I want to start with assuring you that we have Ehrlich treating the property on a quarterly basis. Ehrlich was just there on 7-22-2014 (3 wks prior to your visit) and there was no report of any roaches. No guests reported roaches before or after your stay and we have never seen any.
I didn’t notice any wallpaper peeling but will check it out. As far as any faucets rusting, I’m not sure which bathroom you are referring to. Plumbing fixtures have been replaced and updated in the years we have owned the home. As the home is air conditioned, we have not noticed any musty odor in the bathrooms. The home was built in 1790 and it will not look like a home built in 2014. We are sorry it didn’t measure up to your expectations.

Wonderful Historical Weekend Getaway

  • 5 of 5
This historical home was absolutely perfect!

We had a small family gathering and had a great weekend getaway. This home is recommended for anyone coming to visit the "Amish country" area of Lancaster. Great location for sightseeing.

The excellent service provided by Lori the owner was very friendly and she made herself available for any needs we may have had (... which we had none). It began with my initial contact of questions, through until we were safely home. She's a good communicator, exhibiting a blend of courtesy and professionalism wrapped with the right amount of personal touch (this personal touch was evident throughout the home too). Lori, thanks for making us feel at home!

As for the house itself there were few downsides, being low shower pressure (especially when more than one water source being used ~ but the house is old), and that the main road at front prevented us from having any leisurely walks away from the property. There were MANY upsides, including: Everything was very clean and comfortable; all necessities were provided (including many non-necessities), the spa is very clean, the fireplaces cozy, there's a large dining room table and a wonderful porch for gathering together, and the modern kitchen came with all furnishings.

We'd recommend this to any couple (any age), couples, or families (especially with older children, having comfortable acommodations in each of the four bedrooms) looking for a sightseeing getaway, or location to just relax! Thanks again! Regards, Mark, Donna, John & SunOk

Amazing family time

  • 5 of 5
We spent Christmas week in the home, it was beautiful. Cozy, very nicely appointed, full kitchen all you could need. location was great to get to everything you could want., Shared time with college children and they enjoyed the extra space and their own bathrooms. Lori and Bob, innkeepers are very accomodating and helpful. Would definitely go back!!
