This was our family home for 28 years raising 4 children. Our children loved the out of doors and caught lots of fish in the pond. Creek walking in the Hammer Creek that borders our property. Our 12 grandchildren also loved playing in the big yard, fishing, and hiking. We moved into a smaller property and are now excited to share this home with many other people to enjoy. We love to travel and our family of 20 have stayed in a lot of rental homes by owner.

We had a great couple of days during the holidays staying here at this wonderful home. Beds were comfy, house was perfect for our large group, and even equipped with a Christmas tree. We couldn't have asked for anything better:)

LOVELY SPOT TO GATHER WITH FRIENDS!

  • 5 of 5
Some friends were getting married nearby, so a group of us went in together and just loved staying at this property. The grounds were great for throwing a frisbee; the long table made our group meals a delight; and our youngest guest loved all the toys and picture books. The views out the two-story windows were stunning, and Anna Mae was a fantastic hostess, even providing us with breakfast and other local goodies. The house is stocked with everything you could possibly imagine needing. My only complaint is that I have nothing scheduled in the near future that would give me an excuse to come back to this fantastic house! Thank you for a wonderful weekend!

EARLY CHRISTMAS GATHERING WITH A FRESH BLANKET OF SNOW!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Merv and Anna Mae for sharing your home - and thanks for so many gestures of hospitality. We felt welcomed. The fresh blanket of snow on Sunday afternoon was beautiful. Also, we saw deer, cardinals, and lovely blue birds! We enjoyed the 'campfire' with roasted hot dogs and smores!

REHEARSAL DINNER IN THE MOUNTAINS

  • 5 of 5
On Labor Day weekend we rented this home because our son was being married at a local venue. We initially searched for a suitable restaurant to host the rehearsal dinner for a large group and nothing seemed quite right.

Then we checked VRBO and found this beautiful home with plenty of property and views of the local mountains. The outside decks, patio with cover welcomed an outside dinner setting where there was plenty of room for tables and chairs for all.

The evening was awesome. Two full kitchens supported easy food preparation, cover well lit patio made for a long enjoyable evening and the 40 acres of surrounding land and stream support music well into the night without fear of bothering neighbors.

We would definitely recommend this home for any occasion

BEAUTIFUL HOME, FANTASTIC VACATION

  • 5 of 5
This year we decided to vacation with my sister and her family. We initially were looking to stay closer to Gettysburg but when we looked for a house big enough to accommodate our two families, we came across this house. Having been to Lititz many times in the past I knew the area. In fact, it turned out that this was the perfect location.

Since we love visiting Gettysburg, as well as Hershey Park, this house made a perfect location. Both locations were easy rides through beautiful countryside.

Then there's Lititz and the surrounding area itself. Many beautiful and historic places to visit, some fantastic hiking nearby and so much more!

As for the house, well let me say that it's so much more than we expected. In all we had 13 people in all and never did we feel like we were crowded. There is a lot of space in this house. We also loved the LARGE dining table, where all of us were able to comfortably eat together. The barbeque area with the fire pit made for quiet evenings making S'Mores and relaxing with the kids.

The pond and stream just made the property, in my opinion. For the first time, our youngest got to fish and he just loved it. Sitting by the stream listening to the water move over the rocks was also a peaceful experience.

We also had a chance to chat with both Merv and Anna and what terrific people they are! They make you feel right at home from the moment you walk in the door.

If you are looking to rent in this area you really can't do better than renting this gorgeous house from Merv and Anna. We highly recommend it and know if we decide to vacation in this area again we will rent this house again.
