We really enjoyed our stay here. It was so clean and relaxing, we have a wonderful sleep. We usually stay with family in the area, but this was a wonderful option for us and we loved it. We will definitely be back. We met Doris and she was so warm and friendly, thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful home.

John and Doris Landis started here after buying the family farm from John's father in the 70's. With the help of their son, John Jr. and several employees they have continued to maintain and grow their farm. In 1983 they began their mulch landscaping business that is now known as Landyshade Mulch. Their mulch business grew quickly and is known all over Lancaster County now.

The Owner purchased this farmhouse in 1975

John and Doris have raised their family in this house and have recently moved off the farm. With the recent remodeling of their home they have opened it up to you. Our home is located with easy access to the Lancaster County Amish attractions.

While your here sit back and relax on the porch or balcony, or play with the kids in the playground. Take a walk through the orchard or just sit and enjoy the beautiful sunsets that we get to enjoy daily. We are centrally located to enjoy Hershey Park and the delicious chocolate attractions of Hershey PA and minutes away from Lancaster City and the Amish tourist attractions. While here you can have a scheduled tour of our farm. Enjoy learning about the milking process, maybe get a peek at us milking, see the calves on our farm and maybe get a chance to see a baby being born. Learn some of the modern ways we are conserving our energy and resources.

HOMEY AND CLEAN

  • 5 of 5
We had an amazing experience at the farmhouse! We were 2 families, a total of 12, and we had more than enough room. I am particular with cleanliness and this was the perfect clean and well put together house. Sue was really kind and there were such nice people around working at the farm. John took us around on an enjoyable tour and we even got to see a baby calf being born! The listing descriptions are accurate, and we weren't disappointed in any way. All in all it was an amazing stay. We'll be back.

WONDERFUL REUNION GATHERING PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
This farmhouse was a perfect fit for our family reunion! It was peaceful and had everything we needed for a family gathering. It is close to attractions and everything was clean and neat. Easy to rent and check in and the grounds were fabulous. The screened in gazebo had plenty of room for our 35+ people and the farm tour was very informational. The provisions for linens and towels was great as we did not have to worry about bringing all those items. You will not be dissatisfied!

A FABULOUS PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We had a family gathering here. The children are ages 1-6, and they really enjoyed it. There were eleven of us. We got to tour the dairy farm, which was extremely interesting. Sue and John were so very accommodating. The house is easy access to everything around Lancaster. One of the best places we have ever rented on Vrbo.

GREAT MULTI-FAMILY HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We just stayed here for the weekend with two others families, totaling 6 kids and 6 adults between us and we had more room/sleeping options than we needed! It is a beautiful, cozy, well-designed home with lots of great living space and central dining/family room area for us to gather, eat, talk, and watch the kids. The outdoor playground was a HUGE bonus, as was the outdoor eating gazebo for coffee and breakfast in the morning. The owner and family at the farm were very sweet and gave us a tour of the dairy farm. We didn't stay long enough to need to do laundry, etc. but it was all there, as was an outdoor grill, fully-stocked kitchen in terms of pots/pans, utensils, etc.and plenty of towels for 3 large families. We hope to be back one day!

We stayed here for a long weekend in June 2012. The reservation and check in process couldnt have been simpler. Sue was such a warm and helpful hostess and we enjoyed the farm tour so much. What an asset she is to this property! We got to see a calf just hours after her birth!

The house was beautiful and the accommodations couldn't have been better! We are so glad that we chose to spend our time here and look forward to returning again and again. Thanks, Sue, for all you did to make our weekend fun and special.
