HISTORIC HOME IN CHARMING LITITZ PENNSYLVANIA - THE CENTER OF AMISH COUNTY

Lancaster House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 baths, sleeps 6

Built in the 1800's, Basset House is a wonderful, restful place to experience Pennsylvania Dutch Country. You enter the house via a central hallway, seeing a beautiful living room to your left, the kitchen to the rear, and the staircase with original wooden bannister to your right. The living room has comfortable chairs and its old charm, but also modern amenities like a flat screen TV with cable, an Apple TV, and Netflix. Next to the living room is a full dining room, with built-in cabinets. The kitchen also has that older feel but is equipped with a new range and dishwasher. Behind the kitchen is an enclosed porch with more comfortable chairs and a small table, making it the perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or evening glass of wine.

The upstairs has four bedrooms, two with double beds, one with a twin bed, and one with a crib. All mattresses are Tempurpedic. The bathroom includes a tub/shower.

Suitability:
  • non smoking only
  • Low Allergen Environment
  • pets not allowed

TWO WORDS...SUPER DUPER

  • 5 of 5
This house really was the jewel of main street. Perfect distance from the "bustling" center of Lititz--far enough for peace and quiet, but close enough to casually walk through town. Classic old world look outside. And inside, it had the right mix of period antiques and modern amenities (like central air and state-of-the-art washer/dryer). Plenty big so a family could easily "spread out" and not get in each other's hair, but then congregate for a nice meal in the large dining room. What else can I say? The place was sweet. Just book it--you won't be disappointed.

PERFECT SETTING, ALL ATTRACTIONS WALKING DISTANCE

  • 5 of 5
We were 4 staying in this awesome 1800's home. The house was very comfortable, and family oriented. My two sisters and husband stayed here. The home was emaculate. The kitchen was well stocked for eating in, but we were more inclined to eat out, as the restaurants in the area were very good and a nice selection for the time we spent here. Who planned the snow storm, that made the ambience of the town pop, with the Christmas lights, of town, and when we opened the blinds in the living room we enjoyed watching all the street activity in the snow storm. Such a warm cozy feeling from inside, looking out. We enjoyed playing Chinese checkers on the handcrafted board in the living room. My sister used the dining room table to write her Christmas cards. We found the back porch enjoyable for morning coffee, conversation, newspapers and books. Slept so well on the temporpedic mattresses. The bedrooms were lovely. In fact the whole house was decorated in period design. We also felt if we needed to contact the property managers that they were easily accessible in a timely manner. I cannot say more about this very welcoming home.

CHARMING HOME IN A GREAT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Bassett House. The home is lovely and spacious and very child-proof. The town of Lititz is very charming, and this house is right in the middle of all the cute shops and restaurants-- we did a lot of shopping and eating. Great experience!

BEAUTIFUL HOUSE, FABULOUS LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay here. Comfortably slept 4 adults and 4 children under age 8! We enjoyed the beautiful decor, with crystal and fine china in Victorian style, but also kid-friendly baby gates, high chairs, and a crib. The location was superb - gorgeous town of Lititz, and the house is right at the heart of it. We had a very special experience, and we highly recommend this beautiful home as a great getaway into Lancaster county. We loved the nearby Sturgis Pretzel Factory, where our little ones learned how to roll a pretzel and got to try! - and the Wilbur's chocolate company - Both an easy walk from the house. We also enjoyed Dutch Wonderland, shopping in Intercourse and Bird in Hand, and picking pumpkins in Lancaster. Lots of great things to see and do in this area - wish we could have stayed longer!

BEST VACATION HOME EVER

  • 5 of 5
We had a WONDERFUL vacation at this home! My family and my sister's family both stayed here, and it was ideal. One room had a crib and bed, another had a twin, and two had queen beds...baby gates too to protect the little ones! The house was clean, well furnished, with an abundance of comfort items (soaps, dishwasher, washer/dryer with soaps, dryer sheets, cooking supplies and items, coffee makers...you name it)! It's in the center of downtown, so just walk to any location you'd like--famous pretzel factory, Wilbur chocolate factory...and of course a pub!!! Easy drive everywhere else too.

We were met by Michael who showed us all the ins and outs of the house and location...heck, the kids even loved playing in the fenced backyard...

We saved money staying in a house versus two hotel rooms, and we were SO MUCH MORE COMFORTABLE...if you want to visit Lititz and surrounding area, this is the house to stay in!!!

Downtown Lititz Pennsylvania takes you back to a simpler time. Lined with small shops, including an English Pub, and old fashioned ice-cream parlor, a candy story, the Wilbur Chocolate Factory, and numerous antique and craft shops, the town is a wonderful reprieve from the rigors of our every day lives. Get in your car and within minutes you are in the heart of Amish Country, where you can see the beautifully maintained farms. You can also travel to the City of Lancaster (5 miles away), and see a show at the country's oldest continuos running live theater (the Fulton), visit numerous art galleries, attend a minor league baseball game, and buy provisions at the nearly 200 year old Central Market.

Antiquing also abounds in the area, with numerous small shops in and around Lititz, and larger antique malls to the north in Adamstown.

For Civil War buffs, Gettysburg is about one hour to the west. On your way there, stop at the quaint old riverside towns of Columbia, Marietta and Wrightsville.

More modern amenities are also not far. The region boasts four amusement parks -- Dutch Wonderland for smaller kids, Hershey and Dorney Parks for older kids, and Knoebles Grove, an older-style park set in the woods with wooden coasters and fun houses.

You can also travel to Philadelphia by either train or car and experience the galleries, museums, restaurants and other attractions.

Once you arrive back home, you are walking distance to a number of restaurants, or you can cook for yourself in the fully equipped kitchen. Relax then on the enclosed back porch, or in the comfortable living room equipped with an Apple TV, Bose Music system, and an extensive music library. While the home was built in the 1800's and maintains many of its original features, it has the modern touches you want, including wireless access, Tempurpedic beds, a dishwasher, and first floor laundry.
