About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom with Queen Bed + Pull-out Sofa Bed, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

Tucked away from the noise and busyness of everyday life, is a quiet ''Carriage House'' apartment located just a few miles outside the quaint little Village of Intercourse, PA. Many Lancaster County attractions are nearby: Kitchen Kettle, Strasburg Railroad, Dutch Wonderland, Amish Quilt Shops, Rockvale and Tanger Outlet Malls, Sight and Sound Millenium Theatre, Shady Maple Restaurant/Smorgasboard and other Restaurants with Amish Cooking, Buggy Rides, Hot Air Balloon Rides.

Originally the Carriage House was an out-building which has been newly-transformed into a charming apartment with spacious high ceilings and cozy decor.

A separate bedroom includes a painted armoire and a soft-as-a-cloud down comforter.

The spacious yard features a large gazebo, perfect for picnics, and you are invited to stroll through perennial gardens bursting with color in the summer, or relax in the hammock.

About Fan Smucker

We have lived at this location over 30 years, and for nearly 25 of those years, my husband's mother lived next door to us. After she became sick and was no longer able to live in her home, we bought the property and combined the two properties into one. Grandma's house has become a long-term rental: behind her house in an outbuilding is the Carriage House. The suite is very private, with accessible parking and easy access. It features large windows and a sunny quiet space to enjoy a vacation in this lovely part of the country.

What makes this apartment unique

The bustling little "tourist town" of Intercourse is located just a few minutes from our property, but while you are at the Carriage House, the world slows down, and you can simply enjoy a peaceful, rural spot in Lancaster County.

The Carriage House at the Smuckers' is wonderful! Clean, stylish and very private.

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend the rental. If you are looking for a beautifully decorated, comfortable carriage house with any amenity you might want-look no further. The Smuckers also own and operate a wonderful breakfast cafe and home decor business in Intercourse. Check it out! Five stars!! Rosemary Rancourt

On our list of places to return!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. Kid friendly, peaceful, and comfortable. They had a play set the kids could play with, a super gentle and kind golden retriever, fire pit, gazebo and magnificent views. The sunsets....breathe taking! They provided dvd's that were family oriented and more than enough toiletries. And the decor.....detailed and beautiful. You can tell they take pride in this property.

This is definitely a home away from home and I hope to return soon!

Wonderful place for a getaway!

  • 5 of 5

No disappointment here. Everything in the guest house was exactly as described. It was clean, quiet, and afforded nice privacy. Furnishings were wonderful. Grounds and the gazebo were lovely.

Little touches like coffee for the first morning of our stay, and extra toothpaste/deodorant, etc., in case you forgot something, set this place apart in terms of the owners' thoughtfulness and regard for their guests.

For the two of us, it was perfect! Should we return to the area, it will be our go-to choice for loding.

Love, Love, Love The Carriage House - Return Visitor

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at The Carriage House several years in a row now (5 or 6?) and it never disappoints. The decor is inspiring, the landscape is serene, and the owners (Fan and Carl) are a template by which all VRBO providers should model themselves. And they have Cooper, the sweetest Golden Retriever you could ever hope to meet who makes friends with everyone who visits. We are already looking forward to coming back next year.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I frequently visit the Lancaster area to enjoy the shows at Sight and Sound the American Music Theatre. We have always been disappointed at other facilities that sleeping was difficult with the local traffic. The Carriage House was a pleasant surprise. We had a terrific night's sleep and truly enjoyed our stay. The suite is beautiful and exceptionally clean. It is located in a central area and very convenient to many attractions, restaurants, etc. We did have the opportunity to meet one of the owners. She was so kind and eager to make sure we had a terrific time. We are looking forward to going back.

We are located in a rural area, surrounded by farmland and our property abuts acres of soccer fields that belong to our local public school. Yet we are within minutes of restauarants and shops, as well as activities for the whole family. The Village of Intercourse is approximately 3 miles away, and Lancaster City is less than a 30 minute drive. Strasburg Railroad, Cherry Crest Farm and Dutch Wonderland are located close by. Hershey Park is about an hour away.
