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. It includes a flat-screen TV/DVD, an electric fireplace, comfortable seating area, dining table and kitchenette (sink/refrigerator/microwave/coffee maker.) 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.

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.

Owner's Response: We were surprised to see this post about the heat not working. The repairman had come out a half hour before the guests' arrival, and since we never heard anything to the contrary from them during their stay, we assumed everything was working fine. The technician came again as soon as we received this review, and confirmed that everything is working properly. I give my cell phone number to each guest so they can contact me directly if there are any problems. We really want our guests to be completely satisfied with their stay, and work hard to earn a five-star review.

Name says it all - "The Hideaway"

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I had a fantastic stay at the Hideaway celebrating our anniversary. We were looking for a quiet getaway for some R & R and this place ended up being perfect for us. Booking was easy, check-in was effortless with a key code access. The place was quiet, clean, and well furnished. The bed was comfortable and the coffee was delicious, so it was tempting to stay inside the whole time! Outside was great - they have a spacious gazebo with lounge furniture, hammock, and plenty of land to take a walk. My wife and I spent one day exploring local shopping and site seeing, but most of our stay was at the homestead which was peaceful and relaxing. We will be back for sure and we highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a quiet getaway.

Wow what a beautiful place in the Amish community

  • 5 of 5

We were blown away by this rental, it went way beyond our expectations. The place was so beautiful inside and out. The place was so clean and comfortable, it was home away from home. So relaxing, the couch and recliner was so comfortable, as well as the bed. Whenever we decide to visit the area this will be our choice to stay at and we will make reservations well ahead of time as not to miss out on this place. If you are looking for a place to stay in the area, do not miss this place.

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.
