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 newly 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 and now that the below ground rooms are completed we will focus on making improvements to the yard. 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. There is also a hammock hanging in the trees by the kids sand box so you can relax in the shad and enjoy the country air and birds singing.

Why Deana Gebhard chose Pennsylvania

We feel 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!

Home, Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We love spending time in this fabulous home! It is so relaxing & enjoyable. The homeowners are the sweetest! We keep finding more & more fun places to go in the area, and things to see, every time we visit. A number of our friends live not too far away. My parents & several previous generations were from PA. I've spent so many holidays & vacations w/ family & friends in PA, in addition to my four years of college there. It's, always, a treat to be back. I feel like I'm home. And what an amazing place to "hang our hats" when we're in the area! Thank you, to Deana & Eric! Your home is a delight! Thank you for sharing it w/ us! 💞D. & M.

Perfect weekend retreat!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely home! Very clean and well maintained, thoughtfully appointed with all modern amenities. Plenty of space for a large group but still had such a perfectly cozy feel. Quiet and secluded location with just a short drive to excellent restaurants and attractions. Highly recommend! Thank you Deana for a wonderful stay!

Lancaster Family Christmas

  • 5 of 5

10 of my family met at this home for Christmas. The photos are very accurate. Deana was very accomodating and easy to work with. Her instructions were accurate and helpful. She had already thought of and addressed every question or detail that we had about the home, check in and check out. Furnishings and appliances are in great shape. House was very clean. Finishes and furnishings were high end and well thought out. We found no broken or poorly maintained items. Deana's directions and notes were helpful and accurate. Make sure you compare the bed count to the people in your group to make sure everyone has appropriate bed space. 10 was tight, but we managed. There are steps between rooms on the first floor to consider for mobility issues. We cooked several meals and the kitchen worked wonderfully! We sat all 10 of us at the table, tightly, but we fit. TV room was great. Internet supported Netflix and streaming. We spent one afternoon / evening at the campfire. Road noise is moderate and the adjacent parking lot lights up the fire pit area, which was a bit annoying. The gas grill worked great. Most of our weekend we were content to hang out and cook in the home. The girls visited Luxe Spa in Lancaster and had a wonderful morning. Out entire group had a great dinner at Lancaster Brewing - GREAT food and beverages in a renovated downtown building about 10 minutes away. Everyone loved the house. It was decorated for Christmas and we all felt at home opening presents. Overall, not much could have been better. Beautiful house, great location for being close to town and near shopping and local attractions. We will definitely want to return, and are looking forward to staying here again!

The hosts were so accommodating and responsive, and the property and the decor and equipment were so homey but elegant. Highly recommended, and very close to all Lancaster and Amish country attractions.

A charming country home!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay in this charming country home. It is beautifully decorated, the kitchen is stocked with everything needed to prepare meals, and it is comfortable and convenient to Amish country attractions. We stayed there with two other couples for two nights. The highlight was the fire pit and we sat outside for hours each night in the cool fall air. Thank you to Deana, the perfect hostess!

Beautiful house tucked away with easy access to tourist areas!

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderful! Full of a lot of extras I wish I had in my house! We were 6 coworkers in the area for a trade show. I wanted my employees to be comfortable. We each had our own room for the most part! With 3 and 1/2 bathrooms, morning routines were easier! It was so nice, it was tough leaving it for the show or to explore Lancaster County. It was a vacation in itself. I highly recommend it!

Paradise Country Manor is a private lot down a long tree lined lane off of Rte 30. 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.

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.
