About Lisa Pecora

My French husband and myself decided to move into this neighborhood after becoming pregnant with twin boys in 2010. I grew up in northeastern Pennsylvania and relocated to Lancaster for work 16 years ago. I met my husband in St. Martin seven years ago and after one year he decided to join me here. We got married in Toledo, Spain alongside family and friends. We love the activity of Lancaster because there is room for both all the activity you could hope to enjoy or the solitude of quiet neighborhoods.

Lisa Pecora purchased this house in 2010

Why Lisa Pecora chose Pennsylvania Dutch Country

We decided to move to this home because we absolutely loved the style and care the previous owners put into building this property. We enjoy the large space that the home is situated on and also our well established neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with this home because of the quaintness and also the spaciousness that it offers. The three fireplaces throughout the house really caught our eye as well as the back decks and gorgeous in-ground pool. The vegetation, and large trees as well make us feel like we are surrounded by nature at all times. It is the perfect choice for us to raise twin boys.

Second time back (so far!)

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my sister and I have used this nice little guest cottage for a long crafting weekend - and this time, we invited my brother-in-law! While we crafted non-stop, he built fires in the lovely fireplace and ran errands for us. We went to an event at the American Music Theater in Lancaster for New Year's Eve and were safely back at the cottage within 15 minutes. The cottage is comfy and cozy with plenty of room for three grown-ups to stay out of each other's way when the togetherness becomes too much! The upgrade to the kitchen this year was really helpful. Still a small kitchen but you could cook a gourmet meal in there without much trouble. Everything was very clean and nicely appointed. I don't think there was anything we thought we needed that wasn't already there. Next time, we plan to come back when the pool is open! Thanks, Lisa and Francoise for another great trip!

The host family set up Christmas lights, a tree, and decorations that made my daughters and I Feel the true spirit of Christmas. We sipped hot chocolate by the fireplace, slept in warm, comfortable beds, and baked cookies in the well-equipped kitchen. Everything about this lovely place is welcoming.

Excellent stay- one of the best VRBO we have experienced

  • 5 of 5

We were in Lancaster for a family wedding that was held downtown. The location was excellent - a country setting yet only 10-15 minutes from downtown. Very spacious grounds. We arrived later in the day and our host directed us to a fine restaurant near by. Next door to the restaurant was a grocery store so we did our shopping for the next day. The guest house was well laid out, lots of room, well decorated, clean, and it felt like home right away. The WiFi worked great. Parking was right in front of the guest house. Would certainly recommend and look forward to visiting again.

Beautiful and private Lancaster guest house

  • 5 of 5

The guest house was perfect for our Lancaster visit. It had all of the advantages of home: a comfortable living and dining room, a well-supplied kitchen and great bedrooms. We especially enjoyed relaxing on the private back porch looking out at the in-ground pool. Lisa was extremely helpful, offering suggestions on shopping, restaurants, and directions to various sights. The house is very convenient to many of the Lancaster places we wanted to visit. We look forward to returning to Lancaster and this well-appointed guest house.

Amazing vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5

Our large family had a great time staying in Lisa's beautiful guesthouse. The pool was one of the biggest reasons we rented and we weren't disappointed! Lisa and her family gave us our privacy and were extremely gracious and accommodating to our young children. We would DEFINITELY love to come back!! Our stay at the guesthouse enhanced our trip.
