PILGRIM'S PROGRESS RETREAT IN LANCASTER, PENNSYLVANIA

Lancaster Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

This former upstairs apartment, now newly renovated upstairs home, is the perfect stay for taking a break from life's worries as well as providing easy access to all the local hospitality that Lancaster County has to offer.

When you enter the Spring room, large bay windows surround the North and East sides allowing you to see the Amish buggy teams clopping-by. At night, the open windows allow you to hear the relaxing sounds of the stream that runs just behind it.

Next is a well lit, yellow-pine, log den-library. Here you can can relax in the setting of Native American memorabilia, Westward artwork, and well crafted natural beauty displays while enjoying lighthearted reading.

There is a quaint bathroom providing a shower tub, pedestal sink, toilet, and recessed shelves...very new, very nice.

Past the den-library is the dining room featuring a Pennsylvania German log chinked pattern with Americana motif. Wide beam wood flooring with forged nails. Enjoy eating on an 1800's beautiful dark oak trestle table. The simple lighting is especially calming at night and gives you a sense of early pioneering appreciation, spiritualness, and forging ahead towards good times.

Adjacent to the dining room lies a pleasant country kitchen which has a large counter-top kitchen sink, new stove, new fridge, and champagne glass lighting. There is plenty of cabinet space and a delightful hutch for all your basic kitchen needs.

Lastly, there is a spacious back bedroom with a soft decor and queen sized bed, windows that face to one of the last indigenous Conestoga tribe settlements ('Indian Hill'), and a view of the valley where Amish are often seen working in the fields and Amish children can be seen splashing in the stream.

While it is true at Pilgrim's Progress Retreat, we do not boast having lots of entertainments such as cable television, DVD movies, game systems, table games, a whirlpool, etc., there is a modest sound system for enjoying music.

That being said when you're tired of the quiet life, historic Lancaster City beckons you participate in its various attractions such as movie cinemas, live theatres, neighboring amusement parks (Hershey Park, Dutch Wonderland), day trips to Gettysburg and Philadelphia, an amazing very new in-the-country YMCA gym, golf courses galore, art galleries, fantastic museums, and a smorgasbord of restaurants to choose from.

My Julia and I have been married for 17 years. We are Mennonites with her family being descended from the Herrs of the early 1700's. I work as a physician assistant and my wife is a homemaker. We are into outdoor activities, farmette living, church functions, and enjoying our 3 children.

Owner/Manager purchased this apartment in 2005

It came with the property and thought it would be a fun fixer-upper to invest in.

Cost-effective, quiet, pleasant get-away with amazing centralization to branch out for fun.

My husband and I came up North to attend our Niece's wedding in Lancaster, PA. We were quite surprised to find this quite secret in the corner of Lancaster! What a beautiful place you have. You did a great job hosting us in this retreat of peace and comfort. Thank you from the bottom of our heart for allowing us to stay here. We pray for God to richly bless you all as you continue to serve Him.

LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5
It was so beautifully decorated, central to everything and extremely clean. The owners thought of everything. They even had a plate of freshly made cookies waiting for us. I never expected this to be so large and well appointed. Best of all it is close to everything. Highly recommend this home to anyone visiting the area.

SO PEACEFUL!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our week long stay at Pilgrim's Progress Retreat! The apartment is well kept and so nicely furnished throughout. Meeting the owner and all the family was a real joy! So very friendly and welcoming!After a long day of sightseeing, etc. - we enjoyed sitting outside - listening to the sound of rushing water in the creek that runs behind the apartment. We thought we were in the mountains with the very large hills and winding roads, but it was a nice change of scenery from our past stay in Bird-In-Hand. Thanks so much, Julie and Nathan, for sharing your place!

REFRESHING BREAK AND FABULOUS GLIMPSE INTO SIMPLER TIMES...

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved everything about our vacation to your lovely retreat. Thank you for sharing so much information about the area and traditions of the Amish and Mennonite community. The children especially enjoyed getting to spend time on your property and in the creek with your children! We adults enjoyed just driving the back roads in awe of God's beautiful creation!

Owner's Response: We were delighted to have you as guests. With school being out, it was a treat for our 3 young ones to have such other wonderful children so close in age to play with! Your words greatly encourage us to keep Pilgrim's Progress Retreat cost-effective, educational, and edifying to all those that visit. Appreciatively, Nate and Julie.

PERFECT LITTLE GETAWAY : )

  • 5 of 5
I set this getaway up for my parents' anniversary at the last minute. Nate and Julie responded immediately. When I read the description of the apartment, I knew my father would love it. The wide plank floors and the yellow pine log library were, of course, his favorite. They mentioned how peaceful and tranquil it was, and the awesome woodwork at the near by Amish shops. My mother wanted to purchase the same wooden chair that's in the apartment for her own home. They rode on the steam train and enjoyed watching the Amish farmers at work. When they arrived from their trip, they looked so relaxed.

Nate and Julie, thank you so much for helping my parents have a wonderful anniversary weekend.

Owner's Response: You are very welcome! It was so special to have your parents celebrate their anniversary at our rental. The example of your thoughtfulness towards them and this kind review are as Proverbs puts it..."honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones". You folks are welcome back anytime.

EXTRAORDINARILY THOUGHTFUL HOSTS, COMFORTABLE PROPERTY!

  • 5 of 5
The owners of this apartment in Amish Country are exceptionally friendly, welcoming, and accommodating, and their property is clearly managed with a lot of love and care. I spent one night here with two college friends, and we loved our stay -- the apartment is spacious and homey, filled with thoughtful details from milk and water in the fridge to extra towels in the bathroom to enhance guests' comfort. The property is well-situated for exploring Amish Country by car. Excellent value -- I would absolutely come back again!

Owner's Response: Nothing says good times like the fellowship of friends, good food, and relaxing fun to be experienced in Lancaster-Amish country. An affordable, single night retreat can be so hard to find. It pleases us tremendously to know that you and your friends could take time out of your busy college schedules to enjoy a spontaneous girls' get-away. Let us know if you would like to visit again, we'd welcome you back in a heart beat.
