Photos and Description of this New Providence holiday farmhouse

4 bedrooms, 3 1/2 baths, huge screened porch, 2 FIREPLACES * 2 to 14 NIGHT STAYS

We are proud to offer you our circa 1850 stone farmhouse. This historic Pennsylvania home has a private setting in the heart of southern Lancaster County's Amish country. In fact, many of the neighboring farms belong to Amish families. It is situated on a immaculate 50 acre working horse farm which offers you the unique ability to experience the tranquility of the country without giving up any of the modern conveniences you rely on. Relax pool side while watching peacefully grazing horses at pasture or listening to the brisk cadence of Amish buggies rolling by. Enjoy the experience of a leisurely walk through the landscape of the farm where you can glean a true appreciation of authentic country living. This stunning farmhouse boasts many modern conveniences such as 4 large TVs, high-speed Internet, 2 huge master bedrooms with their own private baths, 18 foot shady, screened porch and comfortable furnishings that will assure your enjoyment while also satisfying your desire for the simplicities of country life. The kids (and adults) will love sitting around the fire pit roasting marshmallows. The experiences you enjoy here at Shallowbrook Farm home will be remembered for years to come. You won't want to leave!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here with our 4 kids and had a wonderful time.

The property was even nicer in person than in the posted pictures. It was clean and well-appointed. The fenced in porch with ceiling fan was nice for late dinners and just hanging out. We made s'mores on the outdoor fir pit with kindling and wood provided. Another couple stayed with us for part of the trip and the 2 master suites were great. The kids slept in the upstairs bedrooms and in the various fold-out couches. The pool was warm in the summer weather and the kids really enjoyed the pool toys. The pastures and horses with the Amish buggies on the otherwise quiet road provided an idyllic setting- but there are a few people who come and go the care for the horses daily.

Overall a great trip - we hope to return!

Wonderful Week

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on a very snowy and icy Saturday and were delighted to find that the driveway and walkway had been cleared. In fact the owners emiled us to see when we would be arriving so they could ensure that everything was clear and ready. It snowed throughout the night and the next morning when we woke up there was a very nice young man shoveling all the sidewalks again. We used the fireplaces multiple times and never ran out of wood. It seemed when we would use the wood from the covered area it would magically reappear. This is the second property that we have rented from these owners and both times had wonderful visits and look forward to trying another one of their properties next year.

Truly Home Away from Home Atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

Our first visit to PA and Amish Country. Absolutely loved discovering the farm land and the beautiful sites. The Stone Home was a real treat! We really felt "at home" and comfortable during out visit and the hospitality efforts were so appreciated. We would love to visit again. The Fall season and the decorations were beautiful.

Made many photos and have recommended to many folks.

Loved attending "Sight and Sound" Theater, Gettysburg, Delicious food at Shady Maple Buffet, and learning about the Mennonites and Amish.

Owners were wonderful to work with via e-mail and phone.

Beyond Awesome!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has gone on many vacations together, (this was for our 45th Anniversary)....but there was no question in any of our minds that this was THE BEST!!! The wonderful house itself, the pool with the incredible view, the pit for our evening smores, the perfectly kept grounds, the well stocked house, I can just go on and on. Perfection. My kids and grandkids just loved it. We hope to come back some day.

Awesome Home!

  • 5 of 5

My family had one of our best vacations here. The house was well maintained and stocked with everything we needed. The property was something you see in a magazine. My kids had so much fun playing outside. We were able to sit back and enjoy the view of horses and lay in a hammock and relax. We also enjoyed the fire pit on cool evenings. There was plenty of room in the house for all of our five children and 2 master bedrooms was nice for us and our newly wed son and his wife. There was a lot to do in the area as well. We enjoyed family dining at good and plenty and a show at sight and sound. The best thing was if we did not want to go anywhere there was plenty to do by just staying at the stone home. I especially loved the amount of shopping to do in this area. The owners were very friendly and answered all our questions promptly. We would definitely recommend the home and look forward to coming back.

Car: necessary

Come spend a week in the country! There are many activities for you to enjoy that are unique to Lancaster County. The Amish community is of great interest with tours to attend and shops to visit that display the Amish lifestyle. Also, there is an abundance of outlet shopping within a 15 minute drive (Pottery Barn, Ralph Lauren, Gap, J. Crew, Pfaltzgraf, Brooks Brothers, Aigner, local crafts people, and many more). We are only minutes from a large orchard where you can pick your own cherries, peaches or apples. Experience live theater at the American Music Theater, Sight and Sound, or The Fulton Opera House. We have theme parks too - Dutch Wonderland, for younger kids (15 min), & Hershey Park (45 min). Lancaster also boasts many quality restaurants for all dining preferences. You can tour local wineries or historic museums. Finally, The Philadelphia Zoo, Baltimore Inner Harbour and National Science Center are only 1 1/2 hours away. There is so much more to do, just ask.
