About Mim Miller

We were high school sweethearts and married soon after graduation. The rental suite was actually our first apartment. We have enjoyed living on the farm ever since and it was a great place to raise our 3 children, all of whom are now married.

The farm's lineage has been traced to a deed signed in 1750 and we're passionate about the family farm as an integral part of the fabric of our nation. We really see ourselves as stewards. We have such a connection to the farmland, and that in turn translates into a God connection. We value where the land came from. There's no more being created, and we value it as a treasure. We have a responsibility to it.

As a family-owned and operated business, the Miller Homestead, up until 2012, was a dairy farm. We continue to raise heifers for a neighbor and grow corn, hay, soybeans and barley.

We enjoy traveling and often stay in vacation rentals in out of the way places. Many times through the years we have hosted out of town relatives and friends in our home and love to share in their lives. When the apartment was vacated, we decided it was the right time in our lives to make it available to travelers.

The Miller Homestead is located within easy highway access to Lancaster, York, Harrisburg or Philadelphia, providing many options for day trips. Children can enjoy playing in a large yard or watching the farmer at work. The owner is a Licensed Massage Therapist for those seeking the benefits of a therapeutic massage. Please contact owner prior to arriving to check availability.

What makes this apartment unique

Quiet location yet easy access to stores and attractions. Close to bicycle and walking trails. Queen sized bed with Sleep Number air mattress. Farm pond available for 'catch and release' fishing. Hang wash on an Amish wash line. One mile farm lane available for off road walks.

Truly an wonderful place!!!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Mim and Clair for making our time there such a delight! It was definitely a place to rest fully and we sure did...especially after several days of giving key note talks at the conference and leading workshops. It was one of our family's favorite vacation experiences. Loved the chickens and the fresh eggs and the lovely walk through your property. My daughter was so thrilled to watch your cows run around their pastures...we've never seen that especially being from Southern California! We are total hotel snobs because of our vast traveling and Mim's BnB was super!! Totally recommend it!! It was pleasure to get to know you and your family as well! I will be back very soon for my next business trip there in early 2015. Can't wait to spend a few days there!!

Beautiful, clean apt run by caring and friendly people!

  • 5 of 5
We rented the apartment for two nights at the end of December for a quick family getaway (Two adults and two kids). The apartment is so clean and cozy, it felt like home. The property is beautiful, the kids loved walking around the property and talking to the animals. Clair & Mim are very friendly, patient, warm people. I would HIGHLY recommend this place! The location is great, we were visiting Hershey. There are plenty of restaurants nearby (We ate at TJ Rockwell's).

Tranquil, Tasteful, Terrific!

  • 5 of 5
This tastefully decorated cozy apartment is the perfect choice if you want to be close to Hershey, Lancaster, Adamstown, etc., and yet feel like you've traveled to a distant tranquil farm in the country. From the moment you enter this more than accommodating abode you feel a calm, "at home" feeling of welcome. It's apparent Clair & Mim lovingly care for their home and farm and that feeling is conveyed to all who visit. Clean, classy and comfortable. Couldn't ask for a more relaxing getaway in the country. Thank you, Mim & Clair for a wonderful relaxing respite.

So Very Charming!

  • 5 of 5
Hubby and I stayed here for a week in October. What a lovely, charming place to stay. We worried when booking regarding the size but our worries were in vain! There is more than enough room in the apt. Mim and Clair have decorated it with just the right about of furniture, kitchen is well stocked with utensils, etc...everything you need! The bed was very comfortable. Did I mention it was clean? Very clean!! Scenery is just beautiful. Highly recommend!

Such a Great Place

  • 5 of 5
My 2 daughters and a friend of mine stayed in the farm apartment for just shy of a week. Accomodations were splendid - could not have been cleaner! Located clase to everything. We went to Hersey park and factory, Amish country, Gettysburg, and Philadelphia - all fantastic day trips - and got back to spend some time and wake up to a quiet, peaceful home away from home. The sunsets were beatiful across the corn fields. Would highly recommend!
