Overview

Elizabethtown Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4-6

As the story goes, this cottage was once a distillery that crafted rye rum and corn whiskey for sale in Philadelphia. Located within a beautiful setting with natural and historical wonders to explore, we are a small family farm raising sheep, goats, alpacas, chickens...and cats. A rustic experience awaits!

- Relax on the front porch, enjoy your favorite beverage and listen to the sounds of the Conewago Creek.

- Help with barn chores. Or just view the animals grazing from your perch on the front porch.

- Receive a tour of this Historic Mill and property.

- Take a leisurely stroll through the woods & wetlands trail on the property.

-Walk or ride your bike from the Mill to Mt. Gretna (12 miles) on the Conewago Rail Trail located right across the creek. While there, visit the regionally famous 'Jigger Shop' for some ice cream (open seasonally), swim at the lake, attend the annual art festival in August.

-Great central location for sight seeing & history inspired tours. Guests have taken trips to Gettysburg, Hershey Park, Lancaster, Philadelphia, Washington DC, New York City.

-We are happy to offer suggestions of things to do. Pioneer Tunnel Coal Mine tour/steam train ride & a visit to nearby Centralia is one of those special unusual side trips that we love (approx 1hr 30 mins away)

Why K Neale chose Pennsylvania Dutch Country

From the 200+ year old farmhouses and mill to the peaceful creek flowing over huge boulders, we knew this was a special place to raise our family and animals.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Watching the sheep graze from the swing on the guest house's front porch.

Felt like home.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this cottage was the highlight of our trip. My husband, our two children and I stayed here because we were thrilled to go to Hershey Park, however, once we arrived to the cottage we didn't want to leave and we wished we had made time to stay there longer. I don't think there is enough room to list everything we loved about this property. It had everything you need to have a peaceful vacation. My 5 year old boy was in a wilderness wonderland and cried when we had to leave. I didn't cry because I'm too grown-up to do so, but the tears were welling up (wink). I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on this property. I wish we could have stayed longer. Our three girls loved the animals---especially the kitties. They still talk about the farm house three weeks later. The area is quiet. Driving around to different locations was easy to navigate. Thank you so much for the chocolate, wine, eggs, and honey. We tell friends and family about our experience and recommend this place. Hope to see you again one day! ---The Swope Family

Stop Looking! This is the place to stay.

Can't say enough good things about both this place and the owner, Katcha. The cottage is in excellent condition and very kid friendly. Very relaxing and perfectly located for the Hershey attractions and more. Cottage was more than amply stocked with everything needed and also has a wide selection of games and videos too. The front porch with a swing was a nice way to unwind at the end of the day. Katcha went above and beyond what we expected. Every morning she came and got my 3 grandkids and took them down to feed the farm animals. She also gave us all a tour of the farm and the kids got to meet and pet the animals. Also, one night when a storm knocked out the lights for an hour, Katcha was at the door with a flashlight in minutes for us to use. We would stay here again without hesitation and also recommend this cottage to everyone.

My great stay

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for a wonderful stay. My entire family had a great time. We loved it so much that we actually cut out what we went there for in the first place, Hershey park...I loved relaxing on the porch reading my book. My kids loved the animals and my husband loved the tour but we all loved the peace and quiet. Thank you so much for all your accommodations, we appreciated everything you did for us. We will be back soon and say hello to the kittens for us. They are missed. :)
