About the property

5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and a full mattress in the basement room. Sleeps 12

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 leather 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. 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 one night 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. 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 20+ years and have 4 great kids! We as a family maintain our 3 vacation homes, sharing the cleaning, and other responsibilities.

Lil Nissley purchased this house in 2011

Why Lil Nissley chose Pennsylvania Dutch Country

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.

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!!

Rental House in Paradise, PA

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 4 nights and had a wonderful stay. The house is the nicest we have rented. Everything is exactly as pictured and more. There were plenty of beds, plenty of towels, and nicely decorated. Plenty of room inside and out. Outdoor area was great to relax in the evenings. Kitchen was very well stocked and loved the open layout with the dining and living room. Amazing service!! I have rented many times before but this owner goes above and beyond. Would definitely stay again!! Close to all of the attractions!!. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend this house to anybody that needs the room. Could not get many TV channels, but we did not know how the TV and Receiver worked. Hot tub was great. Had outdoor grill and fire pit. Enjoyed sitting on the front porch and watching the Amish people and buggies.

What a great home and super location! Plenty of room for our group of 9 (3 a and 6c). Everything we needed was there. Short drive to many attractions: Hershey Park, tubing, Amish Country, Turkey Hill Ice Cream, Cherry Crest Farm, Miller's Rest. - we all had a fun week! Thank goodness for the AC! Owner very responsive and easy to work with.

Plenty of room inside and out. Outdoor area was great to relax in the evenings. Kitchen was very well stocked and loved the open layout with the dining and living room. We did run into a problem with our coffee pot but when I contacted Lil and she brought a replacement that evening!! Amazing service!! I have rented many times before but this owner goes above and beyond. Would definitely stay again!!

Fantastic house!

  • 5 of 5

My Family spent 4 nights in this house (there were 9 of us) this past November. This is such a great house, we had plenty of room and it was beautifully decorated. The house itself lacked nothing, very well stocked. We made a fire every night, utilized the hot tub, and drank our coffee on the porch every morning. It was close enough to everything, but away from the hustle of vacationers. The owners were very kind, my mom forgot her medication when we left, and they were kind enough to mail it to us. I can't wait to get back to this house for our annual trip!
