About Julie Enck

Tom and I were married in 1991, he has grown up here. I am from northern Pa. Tom comes from a wonderful family, just 14 brothers and sisters. We settled up the road a little to raise our family. We needed more space, so we purchased this property to build the pole barn on and the cottage was an added bonus. After long renting for many years, we decided it maybe better to try short term renting. As I am very particular with the cleanliness of this place. It is well sanitized after each use, you can rest assure of that.

Julie Enck purchased this cottage in 1995

Why Julie Enck chose Pennsylvania

This area is surrounded by many things that we value so much in our day to day life. Quite country living, with great neighbors, that are scattered around us and these beautiful breathtaking views. We are privileged to take in and we appreciate all around us everyday. But still not to far from all that Lancaster County has to offer. From theater, great schools, to great shopping, community activities, outdoor life , many churches, golfing, many restaurants over a 100 brewers and so much more. We love it here. and we're sure you will too! So come and see for yourself we'll leave the door open for you. :-)

What makes this cottage unique

In just a short 10 min. drive , you'll be in the town of Strasburg. Stop and enjoy your favorite flavor ice cream at the famous Creamery and watch the buggies go by. While in town you can walk to many unique shops . Then take a ride on the railroad , have dinner in the dining car and enjoy the beautiful scenery all around us. Maybe even see Thomas if he is in town.

From there go on up 5 miles to the outlets , see a show at sight and sound lots of shopping at the outlets, or travel a little bit further to unique shops in intercourse, check out the antiques, try one of the many Smorgashbords available, many restaurants. Go into market on Tuesday, Friday and Sat. Take the kids to Dutch wonderland , or Hershey Park is about 50 min. drive for a day of adventure. Maybe take in a baseball game at the Barnstormer stadium, check for what games they have fireworks. You can travel on up for a day in Gettysburg, a nice drive up route 30, or down to Washington DC.(2 1/2 hrs), or maybe Philadelphia(1 1/2). You won't be bored unless you want to be. Hope to see you soon.

Beautiful Country Cottage With Breathtaking Views!

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was absolutely charming and beautiful inside and out. Very clean and immaculate. We really enjoyed staying in the heart of Amish Country, surrounded by Amish farmland and neighbors. We also enjoyed being able to watch the buggies and school children pass by the house. Overall a great place to stay. The only negative we found was that the grill was too dirty to cook on and did not appear to work. We had a very enjoyable family vacation, and look forward to returning soon!

Owner's Response: David, thanks for your great review. Glad you all had a nice relaxing vacation. Always good to hear. So sorry about the grill, we would have definetly fixed up for you had we known. I usually check every few guests.There was a brush for cleaning on the side. It may have gotten lost, also forgot to mention the extra tank behind white fence. We will definetly make it appoint to check after each guest. Thanks for the heads up. Looking forward to hosting you and family on a return visit.Thanks again for choosing the Cottage for your stay.

White Oak Cottage ( Fabulous )

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our stay at the White Oak Cottage. The Owner Julie was great with all communications. The Home was so much more then we expected. It was decorated nicely and had everything you would need while away on vacation. The rooms were very comfortable and extremely clean. Must say we felt just like home.

My wife and I would highly recommend this rental. It is situated along The Amish farm lands but close to everything.

Wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect and the setting so relaxing. We came down to celebrate our son's 5th birthday at Hersheypark. We went off and did things during the day, then we're able to come "home", cook dinner, then sit outside and watch the buggies drive by. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation.

Private home, a gem surrounded by farmlands.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first VRBO vacation and also first trip to Lancaster. We will never rent a hotel room again, after this experience. Julie was always just an email away and made our trip smooth. It was a perfect place for us. A house is just a house, but Tom and Julie really went the extra mile to make this rental cozy and beautiful. It was very clean and well maintained. After a busy day of site seeing and attractions, walking into the rental house was like entering a home, not a hotel room. One day it rained and our kids were cold, so the extra throw blankets decoratively placed next to the couch was a nice touch, and came in handy to use. Also, Barbies food was delicious! Thank you Tom and Julie! Hope to be able to visit again soon!

We had a wonderful stay , the cottage is extremely comfortable, well equipped, clean and the surroundings are very peaceful. It was really nice to get away from the crowded touristy area and sit on the patio watching the birds and rabbits, not to mention the horse and buggies driving past. But all of the attractions and shopping are within easy reach for visitors to enjoy if they wish.

Julie is very easy to work with , she should be proud of the home that she has created for guests.

We will definitely return.
