Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

*** Summer 2018 *** We will not be running our tubing business this summer due to the bridge at the end of our property being replaced. We will probably try to book weddings, graduation parties and birthday parties in our barn, tent or grassy picnic area to recoup some of the lost tubing income.

Enjoy a relaxing stay at our A-Frame house located at Sickman's Mill. You will have access to the creek and campground for campfires (fire ring and firewood provided), fishing, creek swimming, kayaking, canoeing (equipment not provided) or enjoy a relaxing tube ride down the Pequea Creek from our on-site tubing business ($8 per person Memorial Day - Labor Day).

Our guests often see great blue herons, minks, hawks and the occasional bald eagle. History lovers will enjoy the view of our 4 story stone grist mill. We typically allow our guests to explore the inside of the mill to see our ongoing restoration effort.

Memorial Day through Labor Day there are tubers on-site during the day but they are typically gone by around 6:00 PM leaving a quiet, peaceful setting. This time can vary depending on the creek water levels; lower levels equal a longer float time.

Take a left out of our drive way and the Frogtown Cafe is two minutes away, a country pub that is family friendly. A right out of our drive way will take you to the Conestoga Wagon restaurant where they have great food, convenience store and gas station.

We are 20-30 minute drive, (through country back roads) to Rockvale Square Outlets, Sight and Sound Theater, and Dutch Wonderland. Hershey Park is about 1 hour away. Philadelphia 1.5 hours. Gettysburg 2 hours

No parties allowed, anyone throwing a party on the premises will be asked to leave. Any additional day or night guests must have prior approval.

Cable TV and wireless internet included.

Two large decks allow you to enjoy the view of the campground, historic grist mill and the Pequea creek.

For even more pictures and information see our website.

The first floor contains a large rec room containing a queen sleeper sofa and futon, a separate bedroom with queen size bed and TV, large laundry room, and a full bath (shower).

The second floor contains a living room with TV VCR and DVD, kitchen, full bath (tub and shower), and bedroom containing a twin bed and a full/twin bunk bed.

The third floor consists of a private bedroom with queen size bed and TV, and a loft overlooking the living room.

Loved it! It was just what we wanted and needed for a quiet weekend get away.

  • 5 of 5

Sickmans Mill was so much more than we expected. We loved the privacy and the quiet seclusion. The property is beautiful and we really enjoyed being able to explore inside the mill on Sunday. The house was very clean and the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook and grill our Father's Day steak dinner. Thank you very much. We hope to come back this fall.

Good even when the bridge is under construction

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this house during Memorial Day Weekend

We did hear them working on the bridge but it was not heavy drilling

it was like hearing someone hammering in a nail 300 + ft away

House was clean

organized (thing were labeled where it was example Light switch is behind the door)

They were up front and easy do deal with

we had an enjoyable week

Thanks
