The moment we first laid eyes on this circa 1750 sandstone farmhouse, we knew immediately what an incredibly special home it is. We are thrilled to share this beautiful piece of history with you. Your friends and family will cherish the vacation memories made here, and you'll love the private in-ground pool and 18' screened porch. It is privately situated in the peaceful village of Lampeter where you will have easy and quick access to all the attractions that define the Lancaster County experience. This home has been expertly renovated and tastefully appointed with high quality furnishings for maximum comfort and a mix of antiques that compliment its place in history as one of Lancaster’s seven original farmhouses. Not only will you be surrounded by an authentic piece of Lancaster’s past, but you will be enveloped by all the comforts of the modern world. This home boasts flat screen TVs, high speed Internet, top of the line appliances, and central air and a 9 foot dining room table big enough for the whole gang.
You will instantly feel right at home. The exterior of the home is equally as fabulous with a spectacular, private in-ground pool, a spacious screened porch right off the kitchen and family room, plus professional landscaping. You will not soon forget your vacation at The Carpenter House—you will not be disappointed!
FYI...This home is one of two historic gems we offer for vacation rentals, and both homes are large enough for your entire family. The Stone Home at Shallowbrook Farm (property #156751) is on a 50 acre horse farm, has Amish neighbors, and a private in-ground POOL.

Great place to relax in!
We were in Lancaster for a family event so didn't have a lot of time to spend at the farmhouse, but wish we would have had more! There was plenty of room to spread out, the beds were comfy, the kitchen wonderful to use, and lots of room at the huge dining table. The farmhouse is wonderfully decorated but still feels homey. There are some antiques so young children need to be watched, but we had no problem. It wasn't the right time of year for us to enjoy the wonderful, large screened in porch and pool, but we hope to come back for another family gathering in the warm weather! Thanks Lyndsay and Wanda for the welcoming home baked cookies!
-Great house for our multi-generational family get-together. Everything was as described on the website and our hosts were very helpful and responsive. The location is good for local attractions, but quiet, and a welcome break from the busy US highway 30. The house was very clean, the kitchen well stocked, the bathrooms spacious and the beds very comfortable. We enjoyed the screened porch and there was plenty of room for everyone in the living rooms. With an infant and a two year old in our party, we ate most of our meals in the house, either cooking them ourselves or bringing food in from local restaurants. Our two year old granddaughter loved the nearby sights - Dutch Wonderland, the Strasburg Rail Road, and the playground at the school next door. The adults loved the Lancaster Central Market. We would highly recommend this house to anyone who wants a comfortable place to stay to explore Lancaster County.
Awesome and well kept house
The house was clean and beautifully decorated. Very comfortable. Kids had plenty to do. Truly a relaxing place ideally located near Amish farms/ Hershey/ Strasburg/ Sight and Sound Theater. Very good place to have a vacation. We were very impressed.
Perfect Family Christmas Gathering
This is the second time we rented a home from the Pooles, celebrating our sibling Christmas. Their homes always are beautifully decorated for the holidays. The space, furniture and amenities served us all perfectly. We've never been disappointed.
The home away from home.
The area and house was wonderful. Many sights and stores near to house made it convent to travel to. Also, their were many place to eat out if you wish. The house was equally wonderful, the owners made sure all areas were ready for our stay. Their were many activities for the children and adults to be active in or they could just relaxes. The house was comfortable and very well setup, it was warm and inviting to stay there.
Absolutely perfect home
We just returned from our stay at the Carpenter House 12/17/15 - 01/03/16 and it was an experience I am glad I had.
First of all, Wanda and Lindsay were so helpful prior to our trip by answering my e-mails promptly, which I greatly appreciated.
This home is so clean, beautifully decorated and you just feel "at home". No matter what I say in this review it can not compare with one's own experience, just know that this property is one you can not pass up. There were days that we chose to just "stay home" and relax during our stay and it was quite pleasant.
Thank you so much Wanda and Lindsay for the Christmas gifts, you are so kind.
