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.

Perfection!

  • 5 of 5
Our family came up to Lititz to see our daughter at Linden Hall. It was just one walking-block away from us. We even had a front row seat to the Halloween Parade. This house has ample space for us all. I love old homes and it was thrilling to get to be inside of such history.(built in 1848) Since it is located on Main St., it is within walking distance of all local restaurants and shops. If anyone has a chance to experience this historic wonder, DO SO!

outstanding experience

  • 5 of 5
Clean, well maintained, welcoming and great house in the downtown of the "coolest city in America". 4 adults, 2 kids ages 3 and 8 plus an infant stayed at the house for almost the whole week. Such an amazing house, which has everything you need to enjoy your stay. Everything from quality of mattresses to the little candles around the house - simply perfection.

I highly recommend this property to anyone who even enjoys staying at the hotel or B&B. You will have an unforgettable experience.

Village Gem

  • 5 of 5
The house sits on the corner of Main Street in Lititz,PA a town that is frozen in time. The town is preserved immaculately you can walk up and down Main Street to see all the period homes. It also has great shopping & dining. The house is steps to it all. My kids loved that they could walk across the street to get ice cream! The house is comfortable and cozy. The owners tried to think of everything so we would have a enjoyable stay.

Adorable home in quaint Lititz

  • 5 of 5
This home was a perfect location for enjoying the quintessential American town of Lititz. It is within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and a park. Other local attractions such as Hershey Park and Amish country are within a short drive. We enjoyed the decor that kept within the time period of the home. The home is on Main street, so the front bedroom did have some occasional street noise. A white noise app made the street sounds disappear easily. The backyard was a perfect size for a nice evening outside. All of the amenities provided were in great condition and the home was very clean. We want to return yearly!

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.

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.
