A-FRAME ON THE WATER AT HISTORIC SICKMAN'S MILL

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.

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.

Great place to stay for a family wedding whose reception was held at Sickman's Mill. House well supplied and the grounds great for the campers in our group. Trina and Eric were great.

I rented this place for a bridal shower and it was perfect! It had everything I needed. My favorite was the 2 big porches! Definitely recommend this place! The owners were great to work with as well, very accommodating to my time frame!

Our Weekend at the A-Frame

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the A-Frame this past weekend with our adult children, in-laws, and grandchildren. What a GREAT family get away...... Plenty of private sleeping space, room for the kids, and the most lovely setting. The only negative was that the next weekend we need to be in Lancaster County the house is booked ;(
Will definetly make this our home away from home whenever we can book it!!!!!!

Great time for New Year's Eve!

Great time for New Year's Eve!
  • 5 of 5
My family and I had a great time at the house for New Year's Eve! Plenty of room for those with kids, we had 3 little ones and they enjoyed running around the house! It was a three family affair and we had fun! The games that were there were a great touch! The fire pits got used once (because it was so cold!) but it was great to have a drink by the fire! The hosts were so gracious and accommodating and answered any question I had quickly!
