This stone house is larger than the typical stone farmhouse in the countryside. It has a unique and private setting away from the road near the quarry where the building stone was extracted. Most stone homes we surveyed were located on busy streets or in downtown areas. We like the private setting within an easy distance of Rt. 30, approximately one (1) mile away.

Sitting on the back porch at night with a glass of wine, listening to the crickets is just - relaxing. We enjoy wandering around the yard looking at the flower gardens which are interesting in all seasons.

WONDERFUL, RELAXING AND COMFORTABLE - JUST LIKE HOME!

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay at the Stone Farmhouse. Everything was as described, clean and ready for our arrival (in the middle of a downpour and flood). The owner met two of our guests who arrived early and showed them where everything was. He even texted us to let us know the road was closed and told us how to get around the closure.

We enjoyed breakfast each morning on the back porch and a fire in the fireplace one night. There is plenty to see around the property and we enjoyed just walking around and seeing the birds and a gray cat that showed up most evenings.

The grocery is close (within 2 miles) and there are some great places to eat and shop near the house. We tried the Hoss Steak and Sea one night and ate at Marino's Italian (pricey but good) when we didn't have dinner at the house. We explored Gettysburg (an hour away), downtown York and the Farmers Market and also spent a day in nearby Lancaster looking around the antique shops. The annual National Apple Harvest Festival was fun also. So much so that we went two days (in the rain too)!

We will recommend this property to our friends and we are already thinking about when we can get back to Pennsylvania and the Stone Farmhouse as we want to go to the Gettysburg Battlefield (which was closed). Thank you so much for your kind hospitality Gardner and Gale. Your house is lovely and as you continue the renovations we know it will only get better!

BEAUTIFUL HOME IN A PRIVATE SETTING.

  • 5 of 5
Loved this place. I visit York very frequently and it was nice to have a change from a hotel room.
This home has everything that you could need and the setting is great for relaxing with friends on the back porch, Someone posted below that this place is dirty. I have stayed in many VRBO homes and I found this place to be very clean. CLose to everything without being TOO close. Much better than the photos. I will stay again if I have the chance.

MEMORIAL DAY VISIT

  • 4 of 5
We rented this property while we were in the area for a family wedding. Although we hoped extended family would stay with us for the weekend that did not happen. It would have been a great place for that. I loved the large rooms and the decor. It was very clean. There were new towels in the bathrooms, and the kitchen. The kitchen had all the supplies most people would need to cook meals. The internet was very fast! There is a shade missing in one bathroom, but that is a small fix.

This is in a great location to explore both York County to the West and Lancaster County to the East. We went to the York Public Farmers Market which was really fun. We hiked in Rocky Ridge County Park which had beautiful Mountain Laurel. We attended a Lancaster Barnstormers Baseball Game in Lancaster. They are part of the Independent League. The stadium is new and very family friendly. The tickets are very reasonable. There are many shopping opportunities if you like that, and a wine trail in both York and Lancaster County. Both of these counties have great websites with information for visitors. It would be good to spend some time reviewing these sites before you arrive.

Gale was at the house working on the gardens when we arrived. As a gardener I understand the constant "Battle of the Weeds". We were able to look past those and enjoy the birds and the flowers that populated the gardens.

My only concern with the home is a musty smell The home is clean and updated, There are few rugs and curtains which can cause problems. I think the issue is from an old dirt floor basement. We opened windows to bring fresh air in , and if the central air was running that would probably help. I mention this as I am sensitve to this issue, and I wouldn't want someone who has a severe problem to be surprised.

This is a great place for a family reunion, or for a home base when visiting the area. You could easily spend many days here enjoying many activities. I wish all the best to the owners.

YORK FARM HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We loved the house. Our family felt right at home here. Waking up and having coffee or breakfast on the back porch was relaxing. We had a small family dinner with relatives one night. the kids played in the yard while the adults mingled throughout the downstairs rooms and back porch. We plan on returning for a longer stay.

This 4 bedroom stone farmhouse is located in the serene countryside of east York County near the Susquehanna River within an easy distance of York Fairgrounds or Lancaster county sightseeing and outlet shopping. Perfect for that weekend getaway or business travelers to Harley Davidson or other local businesses. 20 minutes to Dutch Wonderland, an hour to Hershey Park or Gettysburg, the farmhouse provides a convenient, yet private home base from which to enjoy the delights of the Amish country and York County countryside. The FarmHouse is also a place to just relax, on the back porch with your favorite beverage or take chair to one of the many private views and read a book while listening to nature around you. Many families enjoy bringing the extended family together in the comfort of a house large enough that you can always find a private spot.
