A Family Retreat Haven

  • 4 of 5

The house interior plan was excellent for a family reunion retreat. There was plenty of space for everyone to find their niche. Existing right in Amish country was a reality check for us.

Thank you David for providing a place for our family from Vermont, Washington, DC, Cleveland OH, and Wisconsin to gather. mk

Easy access to Lancaster and beyond

  • 4 of 5

Girls weekend in Amish country. Well appointed home with ample room for 3 women. Family style kitchen would easily accomodate 15 to dine overlooking the patio and pool. Owners even left regular and decaf coffee for guests. Great to awaken to the sound of horses hooves passing by ,part of the experience. Located on busy road but easily accessed.

We was very happy and pleased with your house. The house was very clean and tidy. And the location was good because the shopping outlets wasn't far. I would definitely recommend ours to rent your house. We really enjoyed our stay David

The house was very clean and the property was very inviting to relax at.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very clean, the grounds made you feel at home. The noise from Route 30 was not as bad as other reviewers made it seem but then again it may depend on where you live. The train tracks were far enough away that you didn't even notice they were there. We all felt at home in our home away from home.

1 small suggestion - put the backing on the area rugs near the front and back door. With the ceramic tile the rugs move and we all kept slipping when coming inside.

The experience was hone stay lacking and could have been avoided with more information provided.

  • 2 of 5

Okay, well the place is very nice looking and is big. The pool is a awesome with its water slide, diving board, and outside fridge. There was a netflix ready TV, toys for little kids, and the place is a poke stop if you play pokemon go.

It is extremely hard to sleep here, as it is literally on a main traffic road. The constant noise of the traffic passing by made it extremely difficult to sleep at all. There appears to be a rock quarr6 behind the train tracks behind the house adding to the noise disrupting sleep. The master bedroom has no ac vents in it, and no door on the master bathroom. This led to restless sleeping as well. It was extremely hot and humid during our stay and the only c9mfortable place to sleep was in the living room where it was cold. The bathroom situation led to a lack of privacy and with people trying to sleep in the living room and down stairs, there was no bathroom to go to open didn't wake up another person.

The owners were nice and tried to help with the heat, but little fans didn't help much.

Overall the location of the house is good and the price for being a last minute choice, in the house selection process was good. But as many positives the house has, we won't be staying again. Not being able to sleep comfortably is a major.minus for us. If you don't care about the noise or heat as much, this house is great for kids and everything. Just be careful as it's on a major road. If you value sleep highly, then stay away.

Owner's Response: We are glad that you did enjoy your stay. We certainly do not hide the fact that we are on a busy road and there is traffic noise. Many people don't consider it a bother but others certainly do. Our deepest apologies on the Warm weather. The temp during the three nights you were here were 100,95, and 93. The rooms all have vents but since it is a older house they are not as efficient as we would prefer. I am sure it was difficult to keep the house doors closed with your little kids and the pool, but this is very important when its this hot! I might suggest that in the future as you rent other homes that you would follow the house cleaning rules carefully at check out. Thanks for your business.

We are only 8 miles or less from all the fun kids things like Cherry Crest Farms and Dutch Wonderland. Route 30 is an easy drive , but all you need to do is turn on any north or south country road to be in the farm land,
