A memorial day weekend that will be remembered.
The Carpenter Farmhouse is isolated enough so you do not bother neighbors, yet within 10 to 15 min of outlets, supermarkets, Costco warehouse, attractions, greenhouses...
the house is perfectly maintained, a pleasure for the eye, yet totally functional: the living area is huge, allowing several groups to form very comfortably. The decoration is rustic, reminiscent of another era, and you'll find engraved dates or names on the walls/doors attesting to the history of this home. The overall feel of the house is welcoming and warm, not "museum-like. The large screen porch became quickly our everything room; debates, board games, breakfast, late night drink, early morning coffee. the pool water was sparkling clean and well-cared for. There is sufficient grass area to play ball games. The kitchen was clean as was the rest of the house. Pans and pots were rudimentary, and I definitely would bring a couple of my "chef knifes" on our next stay. Strange, we like to cook on vacation! Cookies were waiting for us on arrival, that was a very nice touch.
Fun family Vacation for Children
Farm house has a fully stocked kitchen, large farm house dining table, 2 living rooms with TVs and the most spectacular setting. Was close to Dutch Wonderland and the Strasberg train. My 2 grandchildren, 4 and 2, had a ball. Would go back and recommend to others.
Thank you Andrew. Happy to hear everyone had a fun time. We would love to have you back!
The 2nd Stay As Excellent as the First
We spent a second family-vacation here, and it was really quite a pleasant experience as it had been the firs time around. The house is elegant, and you can't help but feel at peace here. And the location is great as well, with a lot of great attractions a short drive away. We will be looking to stay here for a third vacation in no time.
Fantastic, Loved it!
Thank you Wanda and Lyndsay. Your communication was excellent regarding our rental of the Carpenter House. We loved being greeted with the personal welcome sign and cookies. Thank you for the beautiful home. We had a wonderful stay.
The house is perfect for a large group. We had local relatives over for dinner several nights. We had fun cooking and eating together. The farm style dining table easily sat 12 people. The kitchen was well stocked with plenty of cooking utensils and silverware. One of our favorite things was to drink coffee in the screened back porch. Plenty of room for everyone.
The bedrooms were as described in the details. Each bedroom was beautifully decorated. After a long day exploring Pennsylvania with a large family, it was nice to retreat to our own bedroom, settle down in the comfy chairs, watch TV, and read a book. All of the beds were comfortable with NICE linens. The house was very clean (THANK YOU).
Wanda and Lindsay thought of everything to make this rental property one of the best "home away from home" Although the pool was closed for the season, we anticipate a summer vacation in the near future so we can enjoy the private gated pool.
Thanks again for everything.
Great house, great location, great hosts
We spent a week at the Carpenter house in August of 2018, and loved it. The house was spacious, clean, and well stocked with everything from pots and pans to toys for the pool. Wanda and Lyndsay were great with their communication leading up the the rental, and we didn't want or need anything during our stay. There is so much to do in the immediate area, you really need a few weeks just to make a dent in it. Our highlight has to be the wonderful swimming pool, though, which was kept sparkling clean by early morning visits from the maintenance guy. All in all a great vacation!
