5-Bedroom Georgian Stone Farmhouse On 3+ Private Acres
Jim and I manage the Family Friendly Farmhouse for our sister-in-law, Gale, who owns the home. We are both York County natives and I grew up on a dairy farm about two miles east of this home. In fact, I babysat the children who lived here in the 1970s! We live in the suburbs of York and began hosting an Airbnb apartment in our home two years ago. We now manage the Farmhouse and a third Airbnb apartment in Downtown York. Jim is a "jack of all trades" who can fix most of the basic problems that an old house has. My love is decorating and gardening. Our goal is to make you vacation as stress free as possible.
Kathryn purchased this Farmhouse in 1999
Why Kathryn chose York
(From Gale, the owner) This stone house is larger than the typical farmhouse in the Pennsylvania countryside. It has a unique & private setting away from the road. The quarry, from which stone was extracted for the home's construction, borders the property. Most stone homes we surveyed were located on busy streets or in downtown areas. We like the private setting within an easy distance of Rt. 30, approximately one (1) mile away.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
(From Gale, the owner) Sitting on the back porch at night with a glass of wine, listening to the crickets is just - relaxing. We enjoy wandering around the yard looking at the flower gardens which are interesting in all seasons.

Comfortable, beautiful setting.
The house was very well stocked, and was very comfortable for our group of 6. It is a beautiful setting!
We really enjoyed staying here. Very quiet. The one thing I was disappointed about was I was hoping to use the suite over the garage for our son and his girlfriend. But I called and was told we couldn’t use it as it was separate listing but it made the 6th bedroom listed so I was confused about that. So I put my son and his girlfriend in bedroom downstairs but they said it squeaked horribly and made loud noises every time they moved. The other issue is that the house needed good cleaning, mainly the floors, there was dirt and cobwebs on some places on the floor and one in the kitchen ceiling. Microwave had spill on the plate. Cleaners had obviously missed those couple things. We did not cook anything in the house. We spent most of the time sightseeing so weren’t there much except to sleep and shower. Loved the flowers they left in the kitchen and dining room they smelled wonderful. We enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. It is a beautiful house with so much room!!
Beautiful Country Estate
Perfect place for our needs, well maintained for being such an old home. We had a couple of little issues, but the property manager was incredible at communication and on top of taking care of any issues. It was perfect for our group, rooms were nice, plenty of space and privacy for all. It looks as though they are continuing to update this beautiful home and I would highly recommend this property for a family or group coming to stay to see the sights in the area. Great location a few miles off from the highway and local stores within a mile. Thank you for allowing us to stay at your property. I wish it wasn't raining almost the entire week, but you can't help mother nature! Thank you again!
Good location for my job. Big place, so plenty of room for a family. Had to provide our own water which was a surprise however.
Loved the historic beauty of this stay
Peaceful and historic. Plenty of room!
I'm sorry to have missed you on Sunday, but your booking got me out to the dog show on Saturday and it was wonderful to be surrounded by all the dogs. Remember us for next year. Kathryn
The stay was a nice alternative to standard hotels.
This 5 bedroom stone farmhouse is located in the serene countryside of east York County near the Susquehanna River & within an easy distance of Downtown York or Lancaster county sightseeing and outlet shopping. Perfect for that weekend getaway or business travelers to Harley Davidson or other local businesses. 20 minutes to Dutch Wonderland, an hour to Hershey Park or Gettysburg, the farmhouse provides a convenient, yet private home base from which to enjoy the delights of the Amish country and York County countryside. The FarmHouse is also a place to just relax, on the back porch with your favorite beverage or take a chair to one of the many private views and read a book while listening to nature around you. Many families enjoy bringing the extended family together in the comfort of a house large enough that you can always find a private spot.
