Leacock Home is less than a mile off Route 30 making it accessible and near to many attractions. We are less than 10 minutes to Rockvale Square Outlets, Tanger Outlets, and Dutch Wonderland. Also nearby are Strasburg Railroad and Sight and Sound Millennium Theatre. Cherry Crest Farms, a corn maze, is minutes away and Lititz is a quaint town you won't want to miss! All the attractions in Hershey, Pa are about an hour away. Drive only a few miles north or south and you will be in true Amish farmland.

Leacock Home is a fully renovated early 1900's brick house with gorgeous hardwood floors throughout. We've warmly decorated each room with our collection of auction finds and modern decor. The kitchen is adequately stocked for home cooking and baking. The counter island is central to the downstairs living areas and boasts 5 high bar stools. The dining room table seats 10 comfortably and holds extra chairs for crowding around! The living room has new furniture, side chairs, an area rug, and the TV. There is a bedroom and full bath on the first floor, perfect for those wanting to avoid stairs. The laundry, with it's washer and dryer, is open and you are welcome to use our detergent.

Upstairs are 4 more spacious bedrooms, each with quality mattresses and linens. The beds are made, ready to settle in for the night! Every room has lots of windows each of which is dressed in a privacy shade. There are 2 full baths upstairs. One is in the Master Suite and the other is off the hallway, made for sharing with Bedrooms 2 and 3. There's plenty of new towels/washcloths.

We finished renovations in the basement and now provide you with extra space for the kiddos to play or watch TV/movies. There's a sofa, love seat, chair, bed, and small table for playing cards, etc. It's a cozy go-to spot that grown-ups will enjoy, too! Bring your own FULL-SIZED SHEET SET if you plan on using the mattress in the basement.

This house is great for families! Whether you stay for a few nights or a week, you will be pleasantly comfortable in this clean, beautiful 'new' home. There's plenty of pillows, beautiful bedding, and cozy beds to ensure a good nights rest. Everyone loves the front porch for watching the Amish Country horse and buggies go by. The hot tub, gas grill, and more lounging furniture is on the patio out back. We hope you'll enjoy our Paradise, Pennsylvania!

WE HAVE WIFI - password provided during your stay.

About Lil Nissley

Dave and I (Lil) have been married 25 years and have 4 great kids! We as a family maintain our 2 vacation homes~ sharing the cleaning and other responsibilities.

Lil Nissley purchased this house in 2011

Why Lil Nissley chose Paradise

We bought this almost finished/newly renovated house as an investment and had fun working together to establish this vacation home. It is newly painted, furnished, etc. We have decorated with a collection of auction pieces, thrift shop finds, and just enough of new items to pull it all together. You will love the front porch and the few chairs to relax on or the very private back patio with cushioned furniture, grill, and hot tub. Our second home, which David manages, is a city block down the same country road. The listing number is 102489two

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a large, charming, impeccably clean home right in the heart of Amish country; beautifully furnished; kitchen well equipped. Lil was the perfect hostess. I highly recommend this property; very roomy for even large parties. (5 great big stars!)

Peaceful getaway

  • 5 of 5

The house was exactly like the pictures and the rooms were very spacious. Everything was really clean and the kitchen was well stocked. The best feature by far was the outdoor hot tub and being able to star gaze at night. I loved all the post-it notes around the house with friendly reminders. The host also had quick and thoughtful responses and was very accommodating about letting us check in early. This was a great location for a peaceful getaway.

The house was clean and lovely. The owner was extremely accommodating by allowing us to check in early and check out late! I would stay here again and recommend to friends!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our multi-generation family came and stayed at this beautiful home to kick off the Christmas season. It was close to the Amish markets and Dutch Wonderland, with plenty of space and bedrooms for everyone. The inside and outside of the home were beautifully maintained, with personal touches, and everything needed to feel at home. Lil was wonderful with quick responses, and available should we need anything. We would definitely recommend this home to others, and hope to return in December 2018 to continue the Christmas tradition!

Wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 9 staying at this home. There was ample room for everyone to be comfortable. It was clean and organized. We appreciated the separate thermostats for the 1st and 2nd floors, although the basement did not warm up. Since we stayed here in winter, we did not utilize the hot tub or fire pit as it was too cold and windy. The owners showed up 5 minutes after we arrived and 5 minutes before we left. They were very nice people and responsive when we had questions. We would stay here again.

Owner's Response: We are so glad to hear of families enjoying time together here in Paradise, and especially over the holiday season. Dave and I aim to be available to our guests but not intrusive to your vacations. We've had a cold winter so far here in Pennsylvania and being indoors is best. We added a portable heater to the basement and guests can choose to use it if necessary. Happy New Year!

Highly recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 3 nights (5 adults and 2 kids—4 & 6) in this wonderful rental in Paradise. It’s a really large home (perfect for many games of hide and seek!), well-appointed, spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. The layout (3 full bathrooms!) was perfect for a large family. It allowed privacy for the adults, along with a large living room that felt so cozy and homelike. The dining room was perfect for family dinners and even had a christmas a tree—a welcome plus since we had Christmas gifts for the kids. Lil was prompt to respond and easy to communicate with. There are so many nearby attractions to take kids. They had such a such great time at the Dutch Wonderland (FYI--dress was freezing the night we went!), and spent an entire day at the Science Factory in Lancaster—highly recommend! We also enjoyed riding the antique train in Strasburg. We had a great visit, and felt so fortunate to find such a wonderful place to stay, and would love to stay at this house again!!
