About the property

Our home is located in the heart of Amish country in Lancaster County; short one hour train ride from Philadelphia, and close to many other south central Pennsylvania attractions. Spend the day exploring and then return to the multi-level deck over-looking an Amish farm for a relaxing evening. From the deck watch horse and buggies travel up and down the stone lane directly behind our property. Our home is comfortable and nicely decorated. It sleeps 8, has 4 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths including a master suite with a large, heated soaking tub. Prepare home cooked meals in the large kitchen which is fully equipped with everything you would need including upgraded appliances. There is also a gas grill on the outdoor deck.

Enjoy a casual meal at the large island or kitchen table which are open to the family room where you can enjoy your favorite movie on the flat screen TV, or eat on the deck and enjoy the view. If you prefer a more formal atmosphere, gather in the dining room for a more elegant meal.

This property is conveniently located within a few miles of numerous Lancaster attractions, including outlet shopping at Rockvale Square and Tanger Outlets, American Music Theater, Sight & Sound Theater, Dutch Wonderland, Historic Strasburg, the Strasburg Railroad, great restaurants, and more. Only a 40 minute drive to Hershey Park. Bring your bikes or enjoy a leisurely stroll along the Lancaster County Amish farmlands.

Key Residence Features:

- Amenities include a fully equipped kitchen, wireless internet access, central A/C, flat screen SMART TV, gas grill, deck, spacious yard, and more

- Outstanding location! Walking distance from Amish Farms and covered bridges, as well as easy driving distance from a variety of other local attractions !

Although we are listed as not accepting dogs, we do sometimes allow house trained, non-shedding dogs. We had to make the setting "no dogs" because we were getting many requests from guests with dogs that shed.

Why Tracy Habacivch chose Pennsylvania

This is a great location because within minutes you can be shopping at the outlets or riding bikes on back country roads.

What makes this house unique

The deck overlooks a working Amish farm. Our children have grown up with buggies travelling down the lane behind the yard. The sound of hooves and buggies is very relaxing.

Clean and Spacious Property!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect and Tracy was very helpful and responsive! Our plans changed at the last minute and we needed to secure a house for 8 adults rather quickly. Within a few hours of inquiring about this property, I had all of the information I needed from Tracy and was able to book. The house itself worked out perfectly for our family...plenty of sleeping space and space for us to gather and spend time together. It was also an easy drive to get into Lancaster from the house. Tracy made sure we had everything we needed to enjoy our weekend there; I definitely recommend this property!

The home was spacious and basically had everything you would want and it's located close to several attractions. The owner was very accessible and helpful if you needed anything during the stay.

Habby House was the perfect place for us to stay. Our immediate family lives in several surrounding states and we wanted to meet in the middle. We chose Habby House after looking at many properties and we are so glad that we did. Tracy, the owner, was fantastic - she was super accessible and she responded immediately to every question we sent her way. The house is absolutely beautiful, with an enormous kitchen, a gorgeous master suite, a cozy family room, and a fully finished basement. It's also easy to find - not far from several main roads in the area, which makes it conveniently located to everything you would want to do in and around Lancaster. The Good and Plenty Restaurant is right around the corner (easy walking distance), and many other great places to eat are also nearby. The Amish farm immediately behind the house is a nice bonus - so picturesque. We can't recommend Habby House highly enough and we look forward to staying again for our next mini family reunion.
