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.
