Farmhouse, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s ), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-2)
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 purchased this Farmhouse in 1975
Why Marge chose Lancaster

Family Time Was Great Time
The property is as advertised. The manager, Marge, is a sweetheart and takes care of any problems immediately. The house is amazing and very comfortable. There are many different things to do in Lancaster and the surrounding area so enjoy them all. We couldn't have asked for more during our stay and will definitely keep this one at or near the top of our list. This was our first time for all of us renting a house and, while we were all apprehensive about it, any fears we may have had were quickly calmed by Marge and the condition of the house as a whole. Thank you Marge for a wonderful experience.
I have been planning an August family reunion weekend for 6 yrs. and have used VRBO to find a property between the DC area and Pgh. This, by far, was my family's (15 of us this year) favorite. So much to do do, especially for younger kids--the property manager couldn't have been more accommodating. Landyshade met all of our needs and and expectations and then some!
Beautiful peaceful place
The Landyshade home was everything and more.My family and I had a fantastic time.The house was immaculate.Very spacious very comfortable.There were games and books.Stuff for baby's and children.The farm was awesome Hank the beautiful dog roamed around friendly.Marge was awesome greeted us with a lovely smile.Best place to stay will definitly going back.
Had a great time with my family. A lot of space. Great size bedrooms.
Great time except for the strong scent of manure.
We had a wonderful time!
Our stay at Landyshade was a wonderful part of our Lancaster vacation. The charming country home had ample bedroom and living space to keep our party of nine (five adults and four elementary school children) comfortable even on a stormy day in. Marge was quite welcoming and helpful in getting us settled. Between the large open kitchen and the outdoor grill, we had everything we needed to eat in and enjoy family meals together on the nights that we weren't site-seeing. The location was great -- not too far from Hershey Park and Strasburg, and the kids had a great time at the Laser Dome arcade/laser tag arena just down the road. Thank you for a great vacation, Landyshade!
What a wonderful review!!!Thank you all so very much for being a part of our family while you were here.
Loved seeing all your children playing outside and chatting with them after their visit to Hershey.
Hank the farm dog sends his regards to your Dad,I so wish he post that on Instagram!
A special thank you for taking such wonderful care of our farmhouse..
Please come back and visit us again.
This was the perfect house for our stay.
The property is landscaped perfectly. The house has a huge front porch, were we spent our evenings and mornings. The bed rooms are large and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen table easily sat 12 people. The owners are very nice and accommodating. We are planning on staying there again next year.
