Overview

Lancaster House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Enjoy a relaxing stay at our A-Frame house located at Sickman's Mill. You will have access to the creek and campground for campfires (fire ring and firewood provided), fishing, creek swimming, kayaking, canoeing (equipment not provided) or enjoy a relaxing tube ride down the Pequea Creek from our on-site tubing business ($8 per person June-Aug).

Our guests often see great blue herons, minks, hawks and the occasional bald eagle. History lovers will enjoy the view of our 4 story stone grist mill. We typically allow our guests to explore the inside of the mill to see our ongoing restoration effort.

Since we only let scouts and church groups camp, there are usually no campers, so you typically get the whole place to yourself!

During summer weekends, there are tubers during the day but they are gone by around 6:00 PM leaving a quiet peaceful setting.

Take a left out of our drive way and the Frogtown Cafe is two minutes away, a country pub that is family friendly. A right out of our drive way will take you to the Conestoga Wagon restaurant where they have great food, convenience store and gas station.

We are 20 minutes drive, (through country back roads) to Rockvale Square Outlets, Sight and Sound Theater, and Dutch Wonderland. Hershey Park is about 1 hour away. Philadelphia 1.5 hours. Gettysburg 2 hours

Cable TV and wireless internet included.

The first floor contains a large rec room containing a queen sleeper sofa and futon, a separate bedroom with queen size bed and TV, large laundry room, and a full bath (shower).

The second floor contains a living room with TV VCR and DVD, kitchen, full bath (tub and shower), and bedroom containing a twin bed and a full/twin bunk bed.

The third floor consists of a private bedroom with queen size bed and TV, and a loft overlooking the living room.

Two large decks allow you to enjoy the view of the campground, historic grist mill and the Pequea creek.

Great weekend!

  • of 5
This was our second stay at the A Frame and it was better than the first. The house had a few new updates (in kitchen and bathrooms) which were nice. The owner has always been a pleasure to work with. The location is peaceful with the creek adding a nice backdrop. The use of the firewood and fire rings were an added bonus. Looking forward to our next stay!

Great getwaway spot!

  • of 5
We enjoyed our stay at the A-frame at Sickman's Mill and it's many wonderful assets. The house provided more than enough space for our needs. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck to play cards while surrounded by beautiful scenery. A big plus was that the first floor was easily accessible by my mom who has some mobility issues. She and my dad were able to stay on the first floor because it had everything they needed - bedroom, bathroom and living room and we brought breakfast down to them and all ate at the table in the living room. It was well equipped not only with kitchen essentials and linens, but also had an interesting assortment of games, books, movies and plenty of information about nearby attractions. Cell phone reception was not great but there was a phone available for calls and the wifi worked well . I left a note with the owner regarding a few minor things we found and she responded immediately to say that they had taken care of those issues.
I would definitely stay there again if we were in that area - it's private but not too far away from restaurants and area attractions.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We were spending a few days in Dutch Wonderland and Lancaster. We were looking for a home big enough for our group. We had 6 adults and 4 kids. This home had more then ample space for us.

The welcoming package was a great touch with some pancake mix and breakfast needs. The house was very clean and there were plenty of towels in the bathrooms. The 2nd floor deck was a great place for us to enjoy some adult time after the kids were sleeping.

Trina was always available and suggested great places to visit during our stay.

Cant wait to come back!

Perfect Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5
This was the perfect vacation rental. The home was beatiful, clean, and spacious. We thoroughly enjoyed playing in the large creek. The Lancaster area countryside is beautiful. I am positive I will be returning at some point.
