Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Wanner Family,

Where do we begin? Everything was wonderful. Our stay here was so relaxing and enjoyable. My son enjoyed running and playing outside. He named your cows. My daughter and niece would run to the pond every morning to catch the "big" fish. My inlaws came up for 2 days and they fell in love with your home just as we did. Everything was perfect and we look forward to coming back next year!

We only needed this beautiful home for a one night stay and were taken back by how beautiful it was and how well maintained. Our grandson loved the moo cows! It is in a gorgeous setting. The owners are wonderful people and very accommodating. We will definitely choose this home again when we are back in the area. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home.

How wonderful to stay away from the confined spaces of a hotel room. With small children to entertain I welcomed the large spaces and beautiful yard for them to play. They also enjoyed the swing set. Cookie is so kind, definitely the type of person that is a pleasure to work with when traveling! Thanks again!

Excellent Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
These words were heard from our 9-year-old grandson as we were packing to leave after spending a week at this wonderful farmhouse, "I hope we can come back again." The accommodations were superb--everything was clean; there were lots of local attractions available; helpful information was shared; generous supplies given (we were especially impressed with the number of towels and washcloths); well-stocked kitchen; various amenities such as high chair, laundry, swings and sliding board, doggie forks, wood for the fire pit, plenty of seating (both inside and outside), air conditioning, toys, books, wifi, a TV (not even turned on during our stay); and lots of room for our entire family of 14. We especially enjoyed the tour of the family farm, the stocked pond, the fire pit, the Amish homemade meal, and the Amish buggy ride. We would not only recommend this vacation site for others, we hope to go back ourselves to enjoy even more of the laid back environment, and convenience to local attractions. Many wonderful memories were made by each one of us during our week spent at the Wanner Family Guesthouse. Thank You.

EXCELLENT!

Our stay at the Farmhouse was absolutely wonderful. It was charming, immaculate, and the location was excellent to all places we wished to visit. Cookie and her family were the best hosts. She gave us great advice about where to eat and what to do. The four couples visited the dairy farm and enjoyed a very informative tour of the business. One of the husbands said this tour was his favorite part of the weekend. I highly recommend this farmhouse!! It was the perfect weekend away!

A perfect place for us

  • 5 of 5
Our stay here was such a treat! Our entire family, all twelve of us, gathered here to attend our grandson's/nephew's wedding in the nearby area, where we had lived for several years when our children were growing up. We had such a great time together enjoying the heifers and chickens, and being out in the country where we didn't have to worry about bothering anyone. The house was spacious with lots of room for all of us. Much of the time that we were there we spent sitting around the large kitchen table chatting. When our grandchildren who live in the area came over, there was still plenty of room for all uf us. Because we were busy with the wedding, we could not go on the farm tour or spend time sightseeing. We'll save that for next time. Everything was neat and tidy and just as described. We are ready to go back there again!

-We saw glow worms at night down at the pond!
-We saw and heard a variety of beautiful birds
-Beautiful nighttime sounds of crickets and other animals... very cool!
-We saw a ground hog right next to the house... soooo cute! (lots of cute squirrels too)
-Woke up in the morning to the peaceful & old fashioned sound of Amish buggies jingling and horses clip-clopping by the house
-Enjoyed a buggy ride from our Amish neighbor - so special!
-Loved quilt & antique shopping in the nearby towns!
-Adorable cows
