Overview

Lancaster Cottage Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath (Sleeps 6-8)

Wander the grounds of our 10 acres that overlook the Conestoga Valley and beautiful Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. This early 1700's stone farmhouse has been beautifully restored and is nestled in the woods just outside Churchtown, PA. Once the home of the foreman at the historic Pool Forge, this wonderful cottage is open for use year round.

This is an ideal romantic get-away for two, a fantastic retreat for four or a great place for a family visiting Amish country. Set several hundred yards back from the road, you will have a beautiful view of the valley below from the edge of hundreds of acres of woodlands.

Make your own breakfast or order hot sticky buns from the Amish family across the road. Read a book on our wisteria covered patio which overlooks the valley or cozy up next to the wood stove on a cool evening. Enjoy some of Lancaster's best family dining, or prepare a quiet meal in our fully stocked kitchen. Go outlet shopping or search for the perfect hand-made quilt.

Upstairs: The two bedrooms are upstairs and are furnished as follows: Room 1 - large room with a queen size bed and a double bed. Room 2 - small room with a queen size bed. There are two twin mattresses stored in the closet which can be used on the floor of the large bedroom or in the downstairs living room. Both rooms have access to the one large bathroom which is complete with an antique clawfoot tub and shower.

Downstairs: The kitchen has an eat-in area and there is an additional drop-leaf table if needed. Basic dishes and kitchen utensils are provided. The living room has a TV, satellite service and DVD player as well as wireless internet throughout the house. Use the electric heat, or enjoy the wood stove in the winter. Air conditioning is provided in the summer. Feel free to make reservations to eat with a neighboring Amish family or have Lydia make you her famous sticky buns for breakfast (except Sundays).

Outside: The back porch is the most peaceful place to sit and enjoy a beautiful view of the valley. It is equipped with a charcoal grill and picnic table. Take time to explore the ten acres of woodlands with a great variety of birds. The front of the house includes a carport and small stone well. Two bikes are also provided for your use.

Cozy countryside cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful short stay at the cottage. The house was spacious and well maintained. We loved having the opportunity to rent a home built in the 1700s. The property is quiet and secluded yet allowed easy access to the Amish country, Hershey, Lititz, and the Sight and Sound Theater! We hope to come back and enjoy the cottage in the late spring or summer.

Great Cozy Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

We took a girls weekend to Morgantown, PA as a convenient middle point between DC and NY. The cottage was a great retreat for five girls and a dog - plenty of space to relax and enjoy the weekend. It is well-equipped with all one would need. Definitely recommend!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. One of the things I love about the Cottage is that it's relaxing and private yet you're so close to a variety of attractions and cities.

Wonderful Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific time at this cottage. When we arrived, it was in great shape and all set up with milk, eggs and fruit! There were also lots of games, toys for our kids and even coloring crayons - the owners really thought of everything. Even though the weather was cold, the cottage was cozy. Our girls went sledding in the backyard, and our dog loved playing in the yard. We will definitely be back!

Great getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Great last minute getaway from Philly. Convenient access to groceries, antiques, etc... but we loved feeling secluded in this beautiful house for a few days. The fireplace was perfect for the few snowy days we were there. Our dog loved the property as well, able to run through the woods and play in the yard. We can't wait to visit again!
