About the property

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

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.

Since we only let scouts and church groups camp, there are usually no campers, so you typically get the whole place to yourself!

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.

We spent the weekend there for a girls' getaway. A nice place to get away from it all. Quiet, peaceful and relaxing.

The pictures on the website does this place no justice.

Was a great New Year's surprise to visit this wonderful home with my family. Very comfortable rooms, fully stock kitchen, and the loft deck was my favorite spot in the house. Even the surprise of snow made our last day great. My daughter can't wait to return. (Me either)

Amazing!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family got together over the holidays. We had a wonderful time. The weather cooperated enough to explore the area. What a gem! It is soooo quiet and hidden away, yet, less than 15 minutes to downtown Lancaster! We also looked around Lancaster County and visited many of the attractions! Wonderful time! Met the owners doing some updates on the buildings. We received a guided tour of the mill. What history in such a grand setting!

Great home and great owners

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd year we have stayed in this awesome home. The owners couldn't be nicer or more accommodating.

The house has everything you need. Kitchen is fully stocked. Plenty of fresh towels. BBQ on the deck. Games for the kids. Very clean bathrooms. Nice washer n dryer.

We love it and look forward to coming back next year.

Loved our Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed this A frame house. When we first pulled in we were very skeptical because we saw how busy the tubing business was, and the house was right along the road. They really didn't bother us and we had the evenings to enjoy the outdoors without customers. The road was not real busy either so that did not bother us either. We as a family already voted that we likes this home so much we hope to return sometime!

Thanks for providing families with at place to get away from it all! The Patches Family
