About the property

The Loft in Bird-In-Hand

The Loft is a small apartment (one large room) above our detached garage. We are surrounded by Amish farmland with an Amish school ­house across the road. You will see our Amish neighbors walking, pushing scooters or in their buggies using the farm lane directly beside our driveway. The grounds are also home to our six active children, two overly friendly dogs and a shy 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 loft holds a queen size bed (with an amazing mattress), and two sleeper sofas (one double, one single). The mini kitchenette contains refrigerator, microwave, toaster and coffee pot. The spacious bathroom in addition to a shower includes a whirlpool and double sink. The Loft is fully furnished with high thread count sheets and plush white towels. There is AC and wireless internet but no TV.

There are eight skylights in the unit creating a beautiful atmosphere of space and lighting. We have a back yard you are welcome and sit and relax in.

You may arrive anytime after 4 pm on the day of your arrival. There is no need to officially 'check in', the Loft 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 individual or couple, we have another accommodation called The Cottage on this same property with VRBO #667478.

Wonderful! Relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful gem! We live 5 minutes from The Loft and are so glad we found. We love to take staycation weekend's and this was perfect. Brought our TV and DVD player to watch movies. Kitchenette was awesome, mini fridge had a lot of space. Beautifully decorated. Sunken tub was so relaxing. Can't wait to book another stay towards fall.

Relaxing and scenic

  • 5 of 5

Excellent place to stay in Lancaster county. The Loft sleeps 5, so was perfect for 2 adults and 3 teens. There are many diversions including pets, swings and a play house outside to keep the younger set amused outside. Beautiful scenery if you go for a walk.

Lovely!!! Clean, spacious with homie vibe.

  • 5 of 5

I'm so glad I came to this wonderful place to get away from city life. This is a perfect location, you are away from it all but still close enough to the main roads. The pictures did not justice to the loft. The lovely skylights brought so much light to the house, everything about this loft said welcome!!!! I would definitely will be coming back here. The dogs where so sweet and the kitten was adorable.

photos are accurate per se but really don't do this place justice as an overall A experience

pros--beautiful grounds, Bernie Sanders-sized HUGE quarters, probably near 900 square feet. Bathroom whirlpool is great after a half marathon. AC packs a punch with a easy to use remote. SPOTLESS throughout, with 8 skylights and lovely sofas and chairs. Looks professionally decorated and built, I think the on-site owner is a builder and it shows. Kuerig was a nice touch as were the turndown-like candies.

cons--few and far between, but no place is perfect. Wifi was fair at best, but it did the trick most of the time. just slow and annoying with all the disconnects. but that's about it for negatives.

PS--Their black lab Razberri is just wonderful, a four-legged doorman extraordinaire!!!

Could not ask for a better place to stay, family owned and very CLEAN loft! The craftsmanship that went into building this loft is outstanding. Attention to detail with decor and extra windows make you feel like the space is much bigger than it is (although it is pretty roomy.) We had plenty of everything you would need to make your stay comfortable, did not have to ask for anything extra. The Jacuzzi tub was a lovely end to the day. Razberri will great you when you come home which makes you feel like you live there. We never felt like intruders, which is sometimes the case when you rent where the owners live.

Every picture I took in Lancaster county look like professional shots because the views are stunning! We always rent houses when we vacation and this definitely is one of the best.

One suggestion I would make and perhaps we overlooked it but it would have been a bit easier to come down the outside stairs at night if the light switch was at the top of the stairs. The light has a motion sensor which goes on when you get almost to the bottom of the stairs.
