Holiday Rental House
OVERVIEW Located in the heart of Lancaster County, quietly nestled in the historic area of Ephrata and Lititz. The property features two separate rentals on 14 scenic acres, surrounded by Amish and Mennonite farms, with views of cornfields, farmland, pastoral grazing sheep, and a picturesque winding tree-lined creek complete with a covered bridge. All of this only yards from the property. The main house is a 1840’s restored farmhouse with 5 bedrooms, large great room with a brick fireplace and 16’ cathedral ceiling, newly renovated kitchen, living room, dining room, and 1 ½ bathrooms, surrounded by mature trees.

The property features two separate rentals on 14 scenic acres, surrounded by Amish and Mennonite farms, with views of cornfields, farmland, pastoral grazing sheep, and a picturesque winding tree-lined creek complete with a covered bridge. All of this only yards from the property. The main house is a 1840’s restored farmhouse with 5 bedrooms, large great room with a brick fireplace and 16’ cathedral ceiling, newly renovated kitchen, living room, dining room, and 1 ½ bathrooms, surrounded by mature trees. The front of the house was built on a stone wall with a brick patio overlooking the creek and covered bridge. There is a wraparound porch with a porch swing, an additional brick patio, a sunken patio with garden and bronze fountain, and a stone stamped concrete patio in back. All areas have seating. There are many opportunities to enjoy the beauty of the outside, while relaxing in the numerous outdoor seating areas. A quaint cottage with outdoor patio near the main house is also available to rent, if additional guest accommodations are required. WELCOME TO PROVENCE Envelope yourself in the French country charm of the house as you enter and are greeted by the larger than life French chef and surrounded in the warm, rich colors of Provence. Each room has elements of the French countryside from the French framed posters and wall hangings, carved armoires, pottery, parquet dining table, and light fixtures to the Pierre Deux lampshades, pillows, and custom made dust ruffles and pillow shams. Relax in the spacious family room with 16’ cathedral ceiling and large paned glass picture window with views of the beautiful fields. Off the family room is a bedroom with a single daybed dressed in Pierre Deux fabric and a ½ bath. The kitchen features granite counter tops and custom locally milled walnut cabinets with large counter, original wood floors, and iron French chandelier. Throughout the house, wood floors prevail. The large living room and dining room areas have tapestry valances and coordinating area rugs. As you enter this space, a collection of clay pots and a French oak china cabinet filled with French santons and decorative plates add to the French ambience of the rooms. Above the French oak dining room table hangs a beautiful antique French bronze chandelier. The living room has carved French sofa and side chairs and a beautiful carved oak sideboard with candlelight fixtures. Upstairs, there are 4 bedrooms, each with custom coordinating drapes and bed skirts and all featuring Pierre Deux fabrics. The full bath with tub and shower can also be found on this floor. More
