About the property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom with Queen Bed + Pull-out Sofa Bed, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2-4)

Tucked away from the noise and busyness of everyday life, is a quiet ''Carriage House'' apartment located just a few miles outside the quaint little Village of Intercourse, PA. Many Lancaster County attractions are nearby: Kitchen Kettle, Strasburg Railroad, Dutch Wonderland, Amish Quilt Shops, Rockvale and Tanger Outlet Malls, Sight and Sound Millenium Theatre, Shady Maple Restaurant/Smorgasboard and other Restaurants with Amish Cooking, Buggy Rides, Hot Air Balloon Rides.

Originally the Carriage House was an out-building which has been newly-transformed into a charming apartment with spacious high ceilings and cozy decor. It includes a flat-screen TV/DVD, an electric fireplace, comfortable seating area, dining table and kitchenette (sink/refrigerator/microwave/coffee maker.) A separate bedroom includes a painted armoire and a soft-as-a-cloud down comforter.

The spacious yard features a large gazebo, perfect for picnics, and you are invited to stroll through perennial gardens bursting with color in the summer, or relax in the hammock.

About Fan Smucker

We have lived at this location over 30 years, and for nearly 25 of those years, my husband's mother lived next door to us. After she became sick and was no longer able to live in her home, we bought the property and combined the two properties into one. Grandma's house has become a long-term rental: behind her house in an outbuilding is the Carriage House. The suite is very private, with accessible parking and easy access. It features large windows and a sunny quiet space to enjoy a vacation in this lovely part of the country.

What makes this apartment unique

The bustling little "tourist town" of Intercourse is located just a few minutes from our property, but while you are at the Carriage House, the world slows down, and you can simply enjoy a peaceful, rural spot in Lancaster County.

Home away from Home.

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot describe how comfortable, homey and wonderful this property is. If you truly want to an Amish experience- this carriage house is right in the middle of it all.

The furniture and décor are warm and welcoming. The bed was amazing. The down comforter and pillows were so comfortable. The Smuckers have put so much thought into every detail. Extra toiletries in the bathroom incase you forgot something, a warm blanket to wrap up in on the chair, and too many other things to list. The cottage is impeccably clean. Sadly we were there on some cold days so we did not get to enjoy the hammock while gazing out onto the beautiful fields and pastures. I will certainly come back to this beautiful home away from home and I will not be staying at a sterile, cold hotel room.

Cute, Clean, & Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two night stay at the Smucker's Carriage House. It was very comfortable, clean, well equipped, and convenient to all of the fun activities in Lancaster County PA. Fan added so many details and special touches that made our stay enjoyable. The coffee and friendship bread were a great way to start the day. Thanks and we will be back!!!

Very nice rental!

  • 4 of 5

The carriage house was nicely appointed and very close to everything, yet in a quiet setting. Nice touches were extra toothbrush, shampoo and sugar and sweetener for coffee. Much roomer than a similarly priced hotel room. Also had a nice full sized refrigerator. Would definitely stay again.

Delightful, Comfortable and Immaculate Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

A lot of thought and effort has gone into preparing this tasteful, comfortable suite. Everything is immaculate, and so inviting. All the furnishings are highest quality, and the bed and pillows are the most comfortable ever. The electric fireplace added a cozy touch to the winter evenings. We loved the complimentary friendship bread awaiting us. Communication and support were excellent, and the location is ideal. We will be back!

Back Again!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at this property, each time a different rental. The owners are great and there is nothing left to want. Close to everything yet a bit secluded when at home. We will be back many more times! Steve and Kathy Bear, DE

My husband and I stayed in the charming carriage house from October 4th through October 8th. I loved the property and the house had everything we needed and more, the decor was very nice and had such a warm feeling. The owner Fan left us a delicious loaf of friendship bread that we enjoyed. We also stopped by their coffee shop and had a delightful lunch and enjoyed browsing through the store. The next time we visit Lancaster, this will be the first place I will check for availability. I can't say enough of how much we enjoyed our stay at the carriage house. Jane

We are located in a rural area, surrounded by farmland and our property abuts acres of soccer fields that belong to our local public school. Yet we are within minutes of restauarants and shops, as well as activities for the whole family. The Village of Intercourse is approximately 3 miles away, and Lancaster City is less than a 30 minute drive. Strasburg Railroad, Cherry Crest Farm and Dutch Wonderland are located close by. Hershey Park is about an hour away.
