About the property

One Bedroom Cottage In Heart Of Lancaster Amish County

The cottage is a tranquil getaway surrounded by Amish farmland with an Amish school­house across the road. You will see our Amish neighbors walking, pushing scooters or riding in their buggies using the farm lane directly beside the cottage. You look out over our garden and flower beds and a lovely back yard you are welcome and sit and relax in. The grounds are also home to our six active children, one overly friendly dog and a beautiful cat.

We are just minutes away from many local attractions. The town of Intercourse is famous for Kitchen Kettle Village and horse and buggy rides. Also close to Rockvale Square and Tanger Outlets along with Strasburg Railroad, Dutch Wonderland Amusement Park, Sight and Sound Theater and so much more. We are within a few miles of famous Amish cooking restaurants such as Bird In Hand Family Restaurant, Miller’s Smorgasbord, Dienner’s Country Restaurant and Katie’s Kitchen.

The Cottage holds a queen size bed (with an amazing mattress). The mini kitchenette contains dorm size refrigerator, microwave, and coffee pot. The bathroom in addition to a shower includes a whirlpool. The Cottage is fully furnished with high thread count sheets and plush white towels. It is also stocked with dishes and coffee. There is AC and wireless internet but no TV. There are several skylights in the cottage creating a beautiful atmosphere of space and lighting.

You may arrive anytime after 4 pm on the day of your arrival. There is no need to officially 'check in', the Cottage will be unlocked with key inside. We ask that you depart by 11 AM on your check-out day. If you desire earlier arrival or later check-out, please ask as depending on availability (cleaning time requirements between bookings) we will be happy to accommodate.

If your traveling with another couple, we have another accommodation called The Loft on this same property with VRBO #729114.

Please ask any questions you may have.

The cottage was very nice and clean, decorated beautifully. The owners were great and the dogs greeted us every time we arrived... Waiting for their treats!

Gorgeous, Quaint and Ideal for Couples seeking a piece of Serenity.

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I stayed at Sharon and Ammon's cottage for a weekend in November 2016 and we couldn't ask for a more perfect location. The property was just as beautiful as the pictures and was fully equipped with all the essentials. I appreciated that we were able to access the property without checking in and the owners made sure we knew they were just a phone call away if we needed anything. The place was extremely clean and in tip top shape and we literally did not have to ask for anything because it was already there! We were forewarned about Razberri but she was delightful and extremely gentle, warm and welcoming. We visited the area to see a play at the Sight and Sound Theatre and to checkout the Tanger Outlet Mall, however Sharon left a list of local eateries and attractions and we ended up venturing out even more than we expected. What I appreciated most about the The Cottage was it's proximity to everything and the love and care that went into each and every detail of the home. I highly recommend it!

Peaceful get away

  • 4 of 5

Lovely quaint cottage. Quiet peaceful setting. Woke to birds singing and sound of horses clip clopping down the road. Whirlpool tub was wonderful. Very clean. Only complaint is that cottage got a bit stuffy. Overhead fan made loud clicking noise.

Cozy cottage amist the farmlands

  • 5 of 5

the cottage was very comfortable and nestled among the farmlands and small farm stands. Cottage was centrally located near shops, tours and great restaurants. We took two different tours of the Amish houses and farms and rode in horse drawn buggy. Ben, our driver was very knowledgeable and even invited us back to his Amish home where Emma cooked us a home cooked meal using ingredients from their garden and orchards. You cannot miss Millers Buffet for lunch or dinner. The Waterside Restaurant located on the River was enjoyable and the food exceptional! Razzberry, the family pet at the Cozy Cabin always greeted us when we came home and is a very sweet dog. We purchased some home grown vegetables from the local farms and took home a pumpkin. Such an enjoyable time, quiet and relaxing but plenty to do if you want to keep busy. Would recommend a stay at the cottage.

What a lovely, tranquil place in the middle of my idea of heaven.

The pictures of the cottage are right on, very quaint, with special little touches. Lucky us, the morning glories on the side were in bloom.

So peaceful to sit outside and watch the Amish children as they g oup and down the lane to school and to check on their little farmstand at the end of the drive.

Lucky timing for us, the Mennonite Church on the corner was having a fundraiser weekend. We were able to experience an authentic down home auction and all the excitement that goes with it.

Close to Bird in Hand and Intercourse, although it feels as if you are in the middle of nowhere.

The only disappointments was the wifi (it worked, but not great) and there was no table/desk to sit at.

Would I go back? You betcha!
