QUIET HIDEAWAY JUST OUTSIDE THE VILLAGE OF INTERCOURSE, PA

Lancaster Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps up to 4

Tucked away from the noise and busyness of everyday life, is a quiet hideaway located just a few miles outside the quaint little Village of Intercourse, PA. Many Lancaster County attractions are nearby: Kitchen Kettle, Strasburg Railroad, Dutch Wonderland, Amish Quilt Shops, Rockvale and Tanger Outlet Malls, Sight and Sound Millenium Theatre, Shady Maple Restaurant/Smorgasboard and other Restaurants with Amish Cooking, Buggy Rides, Hot Air Balloon Rides.

The cozy apartment under the main level of the owner's home is warmly decorated and peaceful. It includes a comfortable featherbed, flat-screen TV/DVD, seating area with fireplace, dining table and kitchenette (small refrigerator/microwave/coffee maker.) A washer and dryer can be used for small loads of laundry. The spacious backyard features a large gazebo, perfect for picnics, and you are invited to stroll through perennial gardens bursting with color in the summer months or relax in the hammock under the trees.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: Although we live within a short distance of many activities, and are located within several hours of some of the largest cities in the Northeastern United States, our home is nestled in the quiet countryside of Lancaster County's Amish community. It truly is the best of both worlds!

About Fan Smucker

My husband and are have been married for over 30 years--28 of those years we have lived on this same property. When our children were teenagers we built an addition to the original house, and underneath that addition, we constructed a large room which was used by our kids and their friends. In 2009, we decided to finish that space as a guest area and the Hideaway was established! These guest quarters are unique in that, while the space is attached to our home, it is very private, with its own parking area and separate entrance. It is possible for guests to be on the property for a week at a time and we may never even meet each other. My husband and I like to be available if we are needed but give our guests space and privacy to enjoy their vacation stay.

Fan Smucker purchased this apartment in 2009

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time. So much fun that I'm actually looking at the availability calendar right now! The Hideaway is lovely. My girls loved it too. They're 5 & 3 and kept asking to go back to Fan's house while we were out and about. Cooper is super sweet too. Lovely home, well maintained, and they have everything you could possibly need. Extra linens and towels were provided as well as cups, plates, cutlery. I'm 38 and have been coming to Lancaster since I was a child. After staying here, I won't stay anywhere else when in the area!

What a blessing!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hideaway. So quaint and beautiful. We were greeted by the sweetest dog named Cooper and the grand landscaping of the back yard. So very peaceful and relaxing as we enjoyed sitting in the gazebo. And the clip clop of the Amish buggy's driving by was pure joy.
I would highly recommend staying off the beaten path at the Hideaway. My husband and I plan on returning at Christmas time.

Clean, comfortable, and professional accomodation. Great for families with young kids!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Carriage House for a week with our two young children, and we had an absolutely wonderful time. The suite was clean, beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable. The Smuckers were friendly and very professional. The grounds are beautifully maintained--our children loved playing on the playground, and we loved relaxing in the gazebo. There were toys and balls for the children in the suite, and riding toys outside. Fan provided excellent recommendations for family-friendly activities in the area and even gave our four-year-old daughter a ride on a four-wheeler one morning. I’d highly recommend the suites to young families (or anyone!) looking for a peaceful getaway.

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5
I cannot say enough great things about our stay at the Hideaway. It was perfect for me and my boys. The pictures are exactly what you see when you walk in. It was immaculate, nicely decorated, inviting, and quiet. There were so many nice touches. We cannot wait to come again! I would recommend the Hideaway to anyone!

Wonderful, clean and private getaway!

  • 5 of 5
The Hideaway was a great getaway! It was very clean and had everything we needed. The owners have taken the time to make sure the space is comfortable and felt like home and not a stuffy hotel. The location was conveniently located to everything we wanted to see but also feeling like you weren't in the middle of all the touristy stuff. We will most definitely stay here again in the future and recommend it to family and friends!

Unbelievable!!

  • 5 of 5
Wow. The Hideaway is just perfect. These pictures do not do it justice. The apartment was immaculate and very comfortable. Even though this is the lower level of the house and there was a foot of snow outside, it was very cozy, warm and inviting inside. The owners goes above and beyond to make sure your stay is perfect. Every detail was covered. There was even some pumpkin bread waiting for us!!! I cannot say enough great things about this place. I would highly recommend the Hideaway for a quiet getaway. But there are plenty of amenities should you decide to bring the kids along. And what a great location. In the heart of Dutch country but still close to shopping/dining. You can't go wrong!!
