About the property

Newly Remodeled 5 Bedroom, 3 Full And Half Bath That Sleeps 11

Enjoy the luxury and charm of Paradise Country Manor. The remodeled Tudor home is full of character and gives guests a cozy warm feeling as soon as they drive down the long lane and see the brick home featuring gables and peaks. Enjoy the beautiful solid wood floors, elegant wool rugs, new furniture and modern amenities while also admiring the hand made wooden furniture, antiques, and country decorations that fill this home.

The newly renovated, fully stocked kitchen has granite counter tops and all new high end appliances to make your cooking and entertaining experience even more enjoyable. The layout is wonderful to cook in while you visit with the family. The sink and working space has beautiful views overlooking the lush green yard and trees. Guests can sit at the granite bar or kitchen table and visit while others work in the kitchen space.

From the dining area you can step down into the cozy den/living room which is also known as the 'man cave' that has a cozy new reclining sectional and sleeper bed that wraps around the 50' flat screen TV. This room is over flowing with character from its custom spiral wood handrail, steps, wood floors and wood cathedral ceiling that was made from the tongue and groove attic floor. A perfect man cave or movie room to cuddle, relax and unwind while enjoying family companionship.

Walk in the front door and turn right to enter the dining kitchen area, or go up the stairs straight ahead to the bedrooms and full baths or step down 2 steps to the left into main living room. The main living room has a tall ceiling with custom trim and recessed lighting, new leather couches and flat screen TV above the fireplace along with two cozy chairs to relax in. Seats 8 people with floor space for little ones to play. The living room also opens up into the sun room where you can enjoy your coffee or tea and read a book while feeling like you are surrounded by nature. The Sun room room seats 6 and with the antique secretary desk and chair a fifth person can be included in the conversation or enjoy the quiet relaxing atmosphere.

The master bedroom has a new king bed mattress, hard wood floors and has its own private bath. The bedroom has a large cedar closet great for storing your new purchases or hanging your clothes. Solid wood furniture gives you plenty of storage to unpack and king bed will provide plenty of room to stretch out and relax.The master bath has a heated marble floor that spoils you as you step out of the new tile and glass shower.

The second room which we call the star barn room( due to the beautiful art work in the room that captures the historic Lancaster 'star barn') was newly furnished with beautiful wood furniture, new carpeting and a new queen mattress for a restful night sleep. Views across the Amish farm fields and our private yard and drive. All bedrooms have cedar closets, beautiful art work, custom wood trim lining the ceilings and floors.

The third bedroom has views over the front yard, pasture side yard and parking area. In the distance you can see rte 30 from this room. This room has gorgeous antique furniture with a new full bed. All rooms include gorgeous soft comforters and new pillows that make the beds very inviting! You can bring your own bedding and towels or for a linen fee of $80.00 we will provide clean soft luxurious bedding and large soft fluffy towel sets ( which include towels, wash clothes and hand towels for 2 people per room)

We added a below ground Large King Bedroom with a memory foam mattress(and an adorable mini me toddler bed) and a small cozy bedroom with a twin bed(Guests can always move the toddler bed in with the twin to make it a kids room). The two bedrooms share the full bathroom on that floor. Great floor for a family to share! We also added a fold up twin cot that can be used for additional sleeping for children.

The house is equipped with a highchair, pack and play and a couple baby gates to make guests with little ones feel more at home. A toddler bed is in Lower level King bedroom.

We are constantly making improvements on the property. A new driveway and larger parking area to park 6 cars was added.

We plan to enlarge our patio for outside entertainment, grilling and dining. Currently there is a small patio for grilling with one small table and 2 chairs. Along with 6 stacking comfy chairs to move all around outside. A huge yard offers plenty of room for kids to play and run around. A cozy outside fire pit with sitting for 6 (also have stacking adirondack chairs that you can move around the yard) is in the huge yard to cook smores and relax by. Tucked under the trees is a kids sand box so you can relax in the shade and enjoy the country air and birds singing.

Why Deana Gebhard chose Gordonville

We fell in love with this house that is full of character and charm! My husband had a vision to restore it back to a traditional Tudor with modern amenities. He bought this house and started fixing it up in preparation to have a wonderful gorgeous home to raise a family one day. After we got married, I moved in and as a team we worked together to finish the house and create a beautiful home! This house is still our pride and joy!

And we continue to work on it and make improvements in hopes that others will love it and appreciate it like we do! We started our family there with dreams and visions of turning the house we love into a vacation home for others to enjoy while we moved further into the country with more acreage for our family and animals to play.

What makes this house unique

This house sets the tone and mood for a relaxing family gathering. The house is warm, inviting and so cozy. The private setting and large yard gives you a peaceful country setting while having convenient access to local attractions, restaurant's and stores. This property is the perfect house for your home away from home!

Amazing stay at Deana and Eric's beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at Deana and Eric's beautiful home. Deana from booking and even during our stay was great to communicate with. The house was as described though pics do little justice. Everything has been redone. The home is spotless with all the comforts of home. It seems Deana has thought of everything. The beds were amazingly comfortable and we all slept so well. We all had that to say when talking over breakfast. We had two children with us. Deana had provided some toys which they loved and also had a high chair and pack and play available for use. The location of the property couldn't be better, though off a busy highway its set back so you don't really notice all the traffic. Many stores and restaurants are nearby to the house. We really enjoyed Millers which is just down the road as well as enjoyed the closeness to Dutch Wonderland and many other of Lancaster's attraction. I am very particular about where I stay and I can say I highly recommend staying at Deana's beautiful house and for sure will be back!

Perfect for Our Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

Last week, my mother turned 90. Eight of us came from Illinois, Texas, New Jersey and New York to celebrate. We needed to find a home that could accommodate all eight adults comfortably. In addition, we needed a home with common spaces where we could eat together as well as rooms to simply talk and play games. This lovely country Tudor house met all these needs. In addition, the home was well appointed, very clean and had everything we needed to feel at home, while away from home. We don't have any more 90th birthdays on the horizon, but all eight of us would happily stay in this beautiful house again.

We love, love, love our time here!

  • 5 of 5

It's always such a delight to stay in this gorgeous home, in this amazing part of our country.

Deana & Eric have created an incredibly inviting, beautiful, warm and comfortable home which they kindly share w/ others. We, always, feel "at home" and thoroughly relaxed when we're here.

The location is ideal, with so much to see and do in the area. Every year, we explore more backroads, beautiful countryside and towns, and continue to find new favorite restaurants, shops and activities.

Longwood Gardens is always a stop for us in Kennett Square, as is Wilbur Chocolate in Lititz and the Strasburg Creamery in Strasburg. Some of our newer favorites include The Lampeter Café, The Oregon Dairy, Tomato Pie, Katie's Kitchen and JoBoy's for restaurants.

Covered Bridge hunting in Lancaster County has, also, been a fun time with friends when we're here. You see so much beauty and character along the way, and discover new fun favorite spots to go. Be sure to bring your camera!

Beautiful, as always!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed here for 3 years in a row and it is always perfect for our, rather large, group! There's plenty of space, but it is also comfortable. We can't wait to come back in 2018!

Nestled amongst big beautiful old trees that give you a private setting in the middle of Amish farms and rolling farm land. The property also gives you quick easy access to the highways.

A prime secluded lot centrally located with famous and historic attractions. Minutes from Historic Strasburg, Bird n Hand, Intercourse, Blue Ball, New Holland and Lancaster. A half mile from our driveway you can turn off Rte 30 and explore the rolling country roads and see real working Amish farms and experience the culture of the Dutch Country first hand.

Stop at local Amish produce stands and bakeries that are within a 1-4 mile radius.

Within 2-3 miles from the property are many miniature golf courses, scooter and bike rental places that will help you explore the country side and the surrounding quaint cozy towns. A variety of Horse drawn carriages, wagons and buggies are within minutes and waiting to take you on tours on the scenic roads.
