We enjoyed and relaxed in the beautiful garden getaway
Wonderful place in PA countryside
Our second visit to Fern Wood was even lovelier than the first. The truly marvelous hillside garden makes this an enchanting and beautiful spot. Dawn's hospitality and attention to detail make being here truly relaxing and refreshing. With games, books, and the enchantments of nature at your door, it is also an ideal place to stay with children. Whether you are there for a quiet getaway, a family vacation, or to explore Pennsylvania, Fern Wood is a gem.
Slice of Heaven
From the moment that we arrived, Dawn made us feel so welcome. Fresh flowers and a bowl of delicious fruit and snacks were awaiting us. The apartment was cozy and everything we could have asked for. Soothing music was playing on the stereo when we walked in the door, and I think I was more relaxed than I had been for a very long time. We strolled through their magnificent gardens and rocked the time away on the porch overlooking a serene valley. I have described our home away from home as a slice of heaven. We look forward to visiting Dawn and Herb again in the future.
Very Friendly and accommodating.
Very nice first floor private entrance. Clean and cozy rooms
The perfect getaway for some quiet time.
This place was amazing. It was just what I needed for a quiet weekend away. The scenary was beautiful and the apartment was so cozy. It was tidy and clean and it had everything I needed. Dawn was awesome! She was very kind and welcoming and put me at ease when I arrived. I felt right at home. I will definitely be going back, hopefully for a longer stay next time.
Charming property. Lovely location.
The small apartment came with everything we needed for a very enjoyable stay. The kitchen was small but well supplied with cookware and dishes, etc. The beds were comfortable. There were plenty of towels, blankets, etc. That shouldn’t be a big deal, but we have stayed in places that weren’t very well-supplied! There is also a great wood burning stove which we really enjoyed on cold mornings and evenings. The best thing about the property though is probably the view. It is in a prime location for looking out over the valley into charming Amish country. The near view is great as well! The garden is beautiful. Our hosts were so kind and thoughtful; we felt at home. This was a wonderfully relaxing stay for us. We just wish we had planned a longer stay!
This apartment is off of the beaten path and is located on a quiet wooded hillside with a view overlooking Amish farms in the valley below. The apartment doors open onto Fern Wood Gardens, a terraced display of flowers featured in regional garden tours. This is a perfect spot for married couples and young families to enjoy a peaceful vacation.
Nearby features include: Amish country, scenic drives in a pastoral corner of Lancaster County with the summer season offering views of lush farmlands dotted with produce stands selling seasonal produce and baked goods, and outlet shopping in Lancaster and Reading.
Make sure to see the world famous Longwood Gardens, the Brandywine Valley Chanticleer Gardens and Andrew Wyeth Museum. Also many antique shops, the Hershey and Wilbur chocolate factories, and local Amish and Mennonite food and handcraft shops. The city of Reading is just a twenty minute drive away.
