About Marge Wallace

John and Doris Landis started here after buying the family farm from John's father in the 70's. With the help of their son, John Jr. and several employees they have continued to maintain and grow their farm. In 1983 they began their mulch landscaping business that is now known as Landyshade Mulch. Their mulch business grew quickly and is known all over Lancaster County now.

Marge Wallace purchased this farmhouse in 1975

Why Marge Wallace chose Pennsylvania Dutch Country

John and Doris have raised their family in this house and have recently moved off the farm. With the recent remodeling of their home they have opened it up to you. Our home is located with easy access to the Lancaster County Amish attractions.

What makes this farmhouse unique

While your here sit back and relax on the porch or balcony, or play with the kids in the playground. Take a walk through the orchard or just sit and enjoy the beautiful sunsets that we get to enjoy daily. We are centrally located to enjoy Hershey Park and the delicious chocolate attractions of Hershey PA and minutes away from Lancaster City and the Amish tourist attractions. While here you can have a scheduled tour of our farm. Enjoy learning about the milking process, maybe get a peek at us milking, see the calves on our farm and maybe get a chance to see a baby being born. Learn some of the modern ways we are conserving our energy and resources.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We really enjoyed our stay here. It was so clean and relaxing, we have a wonderful sleep. We usually stay with family in the area, but this was a wonderful option for us and we loved it. We will definitely be back. We met Doris and she was so warm and friendly, thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful home.

Perfect for our small family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

The Landyshade Farmhouse was the perfect place for our family from around the US to gather for a weekend reunion! It was very clean and comfortable to stay in. The kitchen is very well equipped and we were able to cook/bake most of our meals there. We had 6 adults and 4 children, and plenty of extra room with ample space for our young children to play both inside and out!

A special thank you to Marge and Mr. Landis for being so friendly and for showing us around the dairy farm!

Fantastic place to bring in the New Year

  • 5 of 5

My friend set up a wonderful New Years party here, and this place was absolutely perfect for it. The owners were incredibly nice and the house is fantastic. The entire place comfortably housed all 9 of us, without it ever feeling cramped. I can't think of anything that would have made our stay there any better, I'd highly recommend this place to anyone.

Perfect Multi-Family House

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend in Lancaster for a family wedding, & this house was perfect! We had 10 adults & 2 children & there was plenty of room for everyone. Everything was so clean & comfortable, & we really enjoyed the large kitchen for everyone to gather. All of the cows was an extra bonus, especially for the kids. Thank you Sue for making the checkin & checkout so easy. We would definately love to stay here again, & will be sure to recommend The Landyshade Farmhouse to our friends!

homey and clean

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing experience at the farmhouse! We were 2 families, a total of 12, and we had more than enough room. I am particular with cleanliness and this was the perfect clean and well put together house. Sue was really kind and there were such nice people around working at the farm. John took us around on an enjoyable tour and we even got to see a baby calf being born! The listing descriptions are accurate, and we weren't disappointed in any way. All in all it was an amazing stay. We'll be back.

Wonderful Reunion gathering place!

  • 5 of 5

This farmhouse was a perfect fit for our family reunion! It was peaceful and had everything we needed for a family gathering. It is close to attractions and everything was clean and neat. Easy to rent and check in and the grounds were fabulous. The screened in gazebo had plenty of room for our 35+ people and the farm tour was very informational. The provisions for linens and towels was great as we did not have to worry about bringing all those items. You will not be dissatisfied!
