This house was just perfect for our vacay to be near (but not bunking with) family. It was an hour or less away from everything we wanted to see and do. By the time we returned to our home church at the end of our vacation, we had already recommended this property to some friends!
We were impressed with the appearance of the house and everything in it. Very nicely decorated and has every convivence of home. The owners could not have made us feel more comfortable. Even when I left my tablet behind they called and sent it on. I have stayed in hotels that don't do that.... A great big FIVE STAR PLUS from us.. Very nice quiet location and close to anything we needed including some very nice REAL restaurant's with home cooking like I can't get in OHIO.... We are from the area and we moved to Ohio in 1995. We get back to see friends and family and usually use a Hotel. After renting this home I will stay away from the hotel and use this place... Gary & Rusty Mest
Rental experience was great! Good location, very nice home kept in good condition. Beats staying in a hotel any day. The owners were quick to respond to the rental request and accommodate us. Photos don’t really do this home justice. The photos are accurate and up to date but once stepping inside this home really shines! Would recommend this home to anyone needing or wanting to stay in the area. It’s close to Lancaster but just far enough away to stay out of Lancaster traffic.
Very clean, comfortable.
This was our second week long stay in two years. The location really suits our needs. It’s very quiet and well maintained. Having the kitchen, garage and washer dryer are great.
We use vacation rentals all over the world and this house rates as one of the absolute best. The quarters are clean and well maintained. The kitchen is very well equiped. The bed and bedding are soft amd comfortable. We stayed in late August and the air conditioning was a life saver. We highly recommend this convenient and well equipped rental.
The owner put a lot of efforts on this property from decor to bedding to...pretty much everything. You probably will not feel it by just looking at the pictures. But you will immediately appreciate how much the owner invested in this property when you first walk into it. It is way better than Residence Inn or Embassy Suite even NOT considering how much more space it can offer. We will certainly come back when possible.
Home was comfortably furnished with central air conditioning and nice backyard as well as very well stocked kitchen with plenty of dinnerware, pots, pans etc.
We really enjoyed our time in Akron my bride and I had some wonderful and very needed down time.
The property was very nice and clean! We enjoyed our stay
I stayed in the home from May 10th - 24th. I was in the Lancaster area awaiting the birth of my first grandchild. I found the home very comfortable, very clean and nicely decorated. The beds were quite comfortable and the kitchen had everything needed. When i arrived a dogwood tree was in bloom and so were the cherry trees. The second week the iris were blooming. I was pleasantly surprised to see Amish buggies clip-clopping right past the house. I would rent this home again and recommend it to others.
Home was very clean and comfortable. Kitchen was well equipped. It was much better than staying in a motel. It was nice to host our kids and grands for breakfast.
Great place to stay. Had everything we needed for the weekend!
We were very pleased with our stay at this house. The kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed. There was a large assortment of tea and coffee. The milk was waiting in the refrigerator. It was nice to have a garage to use. This was handy for my elderly father. There were safety bars in the shower, too. We will be happy to return to this quiet area.
This house made a great home base for us while traveling on business. The office space was especially useful. It's easy to get to and in a nice community with a park about a 1/2 mile away. The backyard was a pleasant place to relax when the weather was nice. The owners were helpful and responsive when I locked myself out. There were two things we wished were different: 1. More mirrors. There is one small mirror in the bathroom and one in the dining room. It would have been helpful to have mirrors in the bedrooms. 2. The linens and towels were a bit musty and could use a bit of freshening up. Everything was obviously clean, but they were kind of like towels and bedding get over time - just a little musty. We would definitely stay here again when our travels bring us back to Lancaster County.
As before a wonderful experience, definitely a go to place when we are in the area. So many great features at a great price.
This was truly a home away from home. It has everything you could ask for. The kitchen was as well stocked, if not better, than my own, the beds are so comfortable, the living room is cozy and the backyard is large, fenced in and has a nice deck with BBQ. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend it.
Quaint Home in Lancaster is just that! Quaint and perfect! Lovely home, stocked with all necessities, comfortable beds, a wonderful kitchen, dining room and living room. We had a lovely time, and even got to see the resident bunny outside in the yard! We hope to stay there next year.
The house was a true guest house. Very clean, AC was on when we arrived and they had all you need for cooking and cleaning. Spices, beautiful teas and coffees, sugar and more. The deck is great and so is the garden. Our little kids got to enjoy the outdoors safely, the fence is completely surrounding the backyard. Marlin was great to deal with. Highly recommend if you need a great location around Lancaster
Thank you so much for the wonderful stay. Everything was perfect for our get away and meeting up with family. So much better than staying in a hotel! We would definitely stay here again.
We enjoyed a 6 night stay in this lovely home. It was the perfect size for our home base while we travelled to see the local Amish Country areas, Hershey, and Gettysburg. It is well kept, in a safe location, and easy to get to. The fenced backyard made a great soccer practice field for my son, and my husband enjoyed the cool PA air while enjoying a nightcap. My kids enjoyed the 3 TVs so they could relax at night with their own shows. My daughter was excited to see a bunny munching in the front yard upon our arrival. We only used the kitchen for snacks and breakfast, but it is well appointed for those wishing to do more cooking. It was wonderful to be able to park our car in the garage, too (something we can't even do at home!)
I stayed here with my brother and his kids & the owners were extremely accommodating with our need for early arrival. We all felt so at home & had plenty of space for the little ones to run around. The fully fenced backyard was a great space for the kids to play and they really enjoyed watching some bunnies and chipmunks play out back. The Keurig was fully stocked with k-cups and the home had all the basics for cooking like spices and some pantry items too. Cleanliness is a high priority & we had zero concerns in that respect. The neighborhood felt very safe and quiet yet was within a few miles of grocery stores and freeway access. We loved our stay and would gladly stay again.
Enjoyed our time in this property. All the rooms were large and comfy. It was great to see all the spices and condiments, etc. in the pantry. Had fun "experimenting"! There were lots of towels, pillows and linens. All rooms were well appointed and attractive. We enjoyed the patio with lovely flowers and well maintained lawn. I went for many walks and felt safe. This property is very close to the Amish communities and fun shopping. Would definitely recommend this property to everyone, but especially families.
We spent the Memorial weekend at the house. I have little kids and am very picky when choosing a place to stay. The house was spot clean and fully equipped with everything one needs and even more. The linens and towels were very good quality. The kitchen had condiments, tea, coffee, sugar, all kind of special spreads and many more for us to use. I can't speak for how pleasantly surprised I was to find such a great and warming place! We will come back for some more vacations! Thank you for making our stay a wonderful experience!
We came here needing a "place-central" to stay with our children in order to cover a wide-spread field trip to Gettysburg, Independence Hall in Philadelphia and Pennsylvania Dutch country. We had been looking for something quaint to fit the mood and came across another of this owner's homes which was much too small for us. On his recommendation we ended up here and are glad we did. The location was great for us and the renovated home was just beautiful. It was cozy and very clean. The owners were so gracious as to allow our boys access to their own large property across the road which was great for some Civil War re-enactment after the Gettysburg trip! The beds were super comfortable and there were even extra sleeping bags. The kitchen pantry was well stocked - a Keurig with a variety of hot drinks was a welcome sight for us die-hard coffee drinkers and there were even cold drinks in the fridge. We will definitely return to this bright and welcoming home.
My wife and I stayed for a 4 day weekend, we come to Lancaster a few times a year and have always stayed in hotels but I love to cook, even on vacation so we looked into a home and found this place through the Home Away app. Everything about it was perfect. From the outside it doesn't look like much but it is a very nice home, beautiful updated kitchen fully stocked with everything you could possibly need to cook including spices and some other condiments and such. They have two very roomy bedrooms, a very large office, a very nice bathroom, table with six chairs in the dining room, patio doors leading out to a deck with a barbecue and a large backyard. There is also a garage for your car right off the kitchen so it's very convenient. We will be staying here from now on
