Churchtown Manor Farm Guesthouse is located 15 minutes from the village of Intercourse, in the heart of Amish Country. Staying at Churchtown Manor is an opportunity to experience a farm . Come enjoy and relax .
Churchtown Manor was formerly an Amish farm which was purchased by the owners great-grandparents in 1937. The farmhouse was built in the 1800's and has been remodeled recently. The Guesthouse was originally built for the owners grandfather after his son got married and took over the farm. The apartment has since been occupied by the owners parents as well.
Among the Amish and Mennonites, attached apartments like the Guesthouse are commonly known as the 'Dawdy House'. ('Dawdy' is the word for 'Father' in the Pennsylvania Dutch language that the Amish speak.) Often when a son takes over the farm, the father 'Dawdy' will move into the apartment so that the son has room to raise his family and also so that the father can semi-retire.
These apartments are also sometimes occupied by a newly married son or daughter. When you stay with the Stoltzfus' in their 'Dawdy House', you are actually able to experience part of the Amish and Mennonite culture!
The Stoltzfus' would love to have you stay with them and enjoy their 100 acre, organic dairy farm which boasts beautiful views of the countryside. When you stay at Churchtown Manor and experience the peaceful setting, let your mind take you back to what this farm may have been like 100 years ago!
The Stoltzfus' own Lena's Victorian Luxuries in Bird-In-Hand, a gift shop that will also take you back 100 years! The Guesthouse is decorated with items from their shop. You will definitely want to take a trip to the store to purchase a gift for that friend you left at home or a treat for yourself.

Peaceful, beautiful and very quiet......
What a nice time we had at Lena's pretty getaway..... From the landscape and the farm setting to the beautifully decorated sleeping accommodations and the clean homey living space, Lena has made sure that your vacation stay will be a great experience. There were ample supplies in the kitchen and bathrooms to be quite at home. We will be back for sure.
This is our fifth trip to Amish country and this has been our favorite place to stay thus far. Lena was very responsive, kind and accommodating. We were able to watch the cows while they were being milked and we were given fresh, raw milk which was absolutely delicious!! They had really friendly dogs and adorable puppies that Lena was kind enough to let us play with for a bit. The house met our needs perfectly. Lena has it nicely decorated and gives you fresh beautiful flowers as a warm welcome. The view is beautiful and the location is very convenient to many of the areas in Amish Country. We highly recommend staying on their farm.
