About Stephanie Greiner

My husband, Calvin, and I both grew up in Lancaster County and we have a deep love for the land. My husband was a farmer until his late 20's at which time he went into the ministry and we pursued missionary work in Nigeria. We have raised 5 children and have 8 grandchildren. My husband owns a hard wood flooring business and I am a licensed massage therapist, health coach and author. Our home is built on one of the family farms and we love to share our beautiful gardens with friends and visitors. The flower gardens and turtle resort are my husband's passion and it shows!

Stephanie Greiner purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Stephanie Greiner chose Pennsylvania

Our beautiful home is hidden away in the midst of the fertile Lancaster County farmland. We are only 5 minutes from the nearest town, but we live in a secluded, quiet neighborhood with only one other house nearby. Since we are now "Empty Nesters" we wanted to share our homey space with others who can appreciate being surrounded by nature and beauty

What makes this apartment unique

Whether we're sitting on the back deck watching the turtles bathing in the sun, listening to the gently waterfall, relaxing in the rejuvenating hot tub or gazing out over the fertile fields, our property is truly a haven of beauty and peace. Many people have commented on how peaceful they feel in our home and while wandering the grounds which are peppered with busy bird houses, flowers and bushes.

LOved the home! Very relaxing after touring the countryside. Ate at Kountry Kitchen 6 times out of the 8 meals. Turtles and fish were good touch and the gardens were beautiful.

Beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with a couple of friends during a weekend trip to Hershey Park and it was a wonderful place to stay. I only regret that we got to spend so little time here because we were out and about all weekend. I would definitely come back next time I'm in this area!
