Dennis and Karen Stoner and their four children milked about 100 cows until 2008. Dennie continues to farm corn, soybeans, alfalfa and barley. Karen was born and raised in the house and is the fourth generation to live on the farm.
The Owner purchased this house in 1996
The Old Summer House offers serenity and beauty in the country. As our only guests you, will not need to share space with other guests.
Quiet and restful get away in beautiful Lancaster County.
We were delighted to have you and your family stay in The Old Summer House. We are glad to see kids enjoy the out of doors, by the pond, riding the pedal carts or running barefoot in the yard. You are right, the firepit is only a request away. It was slow in coming out of storage due to the cool, rainy weather this spring.
Hope to see you all again.
This is our second stay here and we love the setting for its authenticity and tucked away feeling. The clip clip of horse and buggies passing by is lovely and the hosts are so friendly yet not intrusive. Our kids love the pedal carts, swing and playhouse!
This location allowed us to explore several areas (Strasburg, Intercourse, Hershey, etc) from a good base.
Be sure to visit Lapp's Dairy down the road in New Holland, super fun for the kids and if you go about 4-530 range you can watch the milking.
Thanks for everything, Mr. & Mrs. Stoner!
My family loved it! It was very quiet and the owner's Karen and Dennis were extremely pleasant and accommodating. The home was clean and we had everything that we needed for our stay. We all felt very comfortable and would love to come back and stay again in the near future.
House was charming and quaint. Very comfortable!
The Old Summer House is a very nice place to stay. It was clean and comfortable, perhaps a little cozy for 7, but for families looking to save money, it's so nice to be able to stay here than to have to pay more money a larger place. Our kids loved the tractor bikes. Karen was very accommodating, and it's a great central location to visit area attractions.
We loved this area....so peaceful and quiet! Can't beat country living! Guest house is close to Shady Maple Smorgasbord which is delicious and highly recommended but you will be full when you leave! The Stoner's were very friendly and helpful and even let us stay an extra night even though they had vacation plans themselves. The only drawback to this wonderful place is the bathroom is upstairs with the bedroom and you have to climb steep stairs to get there so it would not be conducive for the handicapped, elderly or little children. But for the young and young at heart you will surely enjoy it!
Very pleased with our stay at the Old Summer House. Clean, warm and friendly atmosphere. Our children loved playing on the swing set and swimming in the pond! We would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it for anyone else looking for a place to stay.
peddle carts, private pond with sandy beach, dock and gazebo
