About Merv & Anna Mae Miller

This was our family home for 28 years raising 4 children. Our children loved the out of doors. Creek walking in the Hammer Creek that borders our property. Our 12 grandchildren also loved playing in the big yard, fishing, and hiking. We live adjacent to the vacation house and are now excited to share this home with many other people to enjoy. We love to travel and our family of 20 have stayed in a lot of rental homes by owner.

Merv & Anna Mae Miller purchased this house in 1983

Fantastic house and property within 15 minutes of the PA Renaissance Festival

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful, well provisioned house with amazing views and three spacious floors (allowing folk to spread out if needed.) The house came with games, toys, a fire-pit outside and a huge dining room table for entertaining. We look forward to returning and putting the volleyball court to use.

There is a nice sized television with satellite and HDMI in the basement (which has its own kitchen, bathroom and easy access outside) allowing guests to bring their computers or console systems for extra entertainment/steaming options.

Merv and Anna-Mae were very friendly and cooperative. Again, we can definitely see ourselves returning.

**Just a heads up though (not a criticism)**

If you all are coming with toddlers (or people with disabilities) the only staircase inside the house is a beautiful spiral staircase with bannister rungs that sit 12-18" apart. It should be easy enough to block off if you have wee ones, but worth mentioning.

Great big house for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the house very much. The grandchildren loved the big open field and the cattle, the pond, the barn and loved the fire pit in the evening. We loved the coziness of the house. It was clean and spacious. The view from the living room was spectacular. The kitchen had all the pots and pans and silverware and the walk-in closet had all the necessary cleaning material. The playroom on the lower level was stacked with toys and games. The town of Lititz had a lot to offer. Everyone wants to come back to this house!

Very dirty, and run down, unacceptable condition.

  • 1 of 5

The house was in a good location, and fit our large group, however, the condition of the house was not acceptable. It was very dirty. Cobwebs in almost every room. Carpet was dingy. The dishes had not been cleaned, the kitchen floors were filthy. So much so, that when we wiped up some ice that had fallen on the floor, the paper towel came up black. It was apparent that the floors hadn't been cleaned in a long time for them to be that dirty. We asked to have the cleaning fee refunded since it wasn't cleaned but we're told no since we didn't clean the entire house. The point wasn't that we only cleaned all of the dishes and the kitchen floors, the point was we shouldn't have had to clean at all.

Also, the pictures show an outdoor fireplace that was locked and is not available for us. This was disappointing since we were looking forward to using it. I think it's unfair to show a picture of an outdoor fireplace, only to have renters arrive and be told you aren't able to use it.

Lastly, there were two spots that had bare wires hanging out of the wall or electrical box. What? The place was in almost total disrepair.

Overall, the trip was fun, but the state of the house was not acceptable, and we would not return. I was disappointed very much in the response received from the renters as well when this lack of cleaning was brought to their attention.

Owner's Response: We do our best to provide a safe and clean house for our guests. There were no electrical wires exposed. These were speaker wires for an intercom system. We have very high ceiling and our house is in the woods so agree we do not catch all the cobwebs. We have a firepit for use by our renters. The fireplace is a bake oven and use of it is not listed on our website. The house is cleaned after every rental.

My family and I stayed here for a week. It was our first vacation in years. The pictures show a much different idea of the home than what we got. The furniture was all different in the pictures. The furniture here was very worn, holes in it, etc. The wall paper was peeling in every room, the house was dusty, and the rugs had sticky substances on them. We had children crawling all over them which wasn't the greatest. The showers had moldy rugs and bath mats which Weren't good for the children's wellbeing nor anyone else's.

The view and the deck were nice, but that's about it. We were quite disappointed overall.

Owner's Response: We are disappointed to hear that our home did not meet your expectations. Some of the furniture that was broken or worn in the two living rooms had been replaced recently giving us more seating area than shows on the pictures. We do our best to provide a clean and safe environment for our guests. It is our desire to have our guests enjoy our home.

Family Reunion

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for a family reunion and had a great experience. We found a lot to do in the area for our diverse group of 18 that ranged in age from 71 years to 6 months. The house was large, well equipped for our large group, and everything functional. We particularly enjoyed the large deck that looked out towards the hills and was a beautiful place to gather. The Miller's were gracious hosts and responsive to our occasional questions.

We brought our staff over for a conference in the area. The rental provided a great location for us and a good place to relax after a day of meetings! The home was comfortable and clean and the views were beautiful. Thanks for the hospitality!
