About Linda Fisher

Hi..My husband and family love living in Lancaster Co. It is a peaceful family friendly area to raise our kids. I love to garden, sew, decorate, and basically make things beautiful! We love to travel and meet new people! And are learning one of the sweetest things in life is being a grand parent!

Why Linda Fisher chose Blue Ball

Visiting Lancaster Co is delightful. We are surrounded by history from the 18th century and one will feel like they are living in history when watching the farmers plow w/ oxen and enjoy horse and buggies wandering by. The craftsmanship of our local families is admirable. Quilts, furniture, aprons, garden decorating, bakeries, and the overflow of fruits and vegetables!

What makes this apartment unique

We love our property for several reasons. It is close to local shopping and schools..a small town atomosphere. But at the same time the country. We enjoy a working farm behind the steer wander watching the farm grow corn or soy beans in the field next to our home. I love the quality of soil which allows for great gardening. We most love to watch the sun rise and set from March to Nov. The sunsets are glorious and no day could start better than sitting on the porch watching the sun rise.

Great lodging for your exploration of Lancaster County

  • 5 of 5

My family booked the apartment for a 3-day visit with extended family in the New Holland area. The apartment is conveniently located to see lots of the area within an hour. The lodging itself was perfectly spacious and furnished for our needs. We very much enjoyed our stay, and would recommend this spot! Linda was easy to communicate with and was a gracious host.

Spacious with a full kitchen.

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as advertised--clean, updated and spacious. My family enjoyed the convenience of a full kitchen and room for us to do what we each chose-- play cards, read, take a nap-- all in the same general space.

Linda was quick to answer questions, but afforded us privacy as well.

It is located on a busy street, but that was not an issue.

If you're looking for a family space to enjoy the Lancaster area, I recommend this apartment!

Our apartment is located in South Eastern Lancaster Co. There are many historical villages, antiquing, thrift shopping, outlet shopping, Pennsylvania Dutch eating and hand crafted shops spread throughout this part of the county. The Amish community and plain Mennonite surround us. It is common to hear the clip clop of buggies wandering by. Produce stands loaded with local produce reside within a few miles. There is no lack of great food, bakeries, and amish quilts or amish made furniture to enjoy.

We also are within an hours drive to Philadelphia, Valley Forge, and Harrisburg. Baltimore would be an 2 hr drive and Washington DC 3.
