Overview

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.

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.

Very clean, comfortable and thoughtfully supplied. Also very quiet and home-like. Definitely woould stay again and recommend to friends. Right in the midst of farmland, yet not far from the action.

Lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

What a great vacation home! Beautifully decorated and well appointed in a fabulous location. The Amish friendship bread that was left for us was delicious!! Our kids loved the sweet dog and kitty, as well as the hammock and swing set. Having the ability to do or laundry was a huge plus, as was the 11am checkout - that extra hour to get ready was helpful! All in all, a lovely place, in a beautiful setting. We will be back! Thanks for setting the stage for a wonderful family vacation.

Feels like home.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time these two days in Lancaster. We enjoy staying in the carriage house. Have to say it was spot less. Very Very clean. Bed was very comfortable as well.

Carl and Fan were very easy to communicate with. We enjoyed going to the gazebo, with the company of Cooper the sweetest dog ever. My daughter enjoy resting in the hammock after having a long day sight seeing. Thanks again for everything, we surely will return again. Will tell our friends about the cottage.

Thanks again, God bless

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.
