Overview

Photos and Description of this Narvon holiday farmhouse

Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 8-9)

Beautiful country setting on 10 acres down a quarter mile lane with no visible neighbors! The property is surrounded by farm fields and forest. The house is a restored 200+ year old stone farmhouse with original random-width hardwood floors throughout. Master bedroom has a queen bed, second bedroom has a queen-size bed, third bedroom has a full/double-size bed and a full-size crib, and the fourth bedroom has twin-size bunk beds.

Perfect for a quiet romantic get away or a fun family vacation where the kids can run and play outside with no danger of passing cars. Enough space for a wedding or a family reunion out on the lawn!

Great location close to Lancaster County/Amish attractions, Dutch Wonderland, outlet shopping, 20+ museums, hot-air balloon rides, Strasburg Railroad and the list goes on.

Need a break from your busy life?: Find yourself listening to the birds and the crickets as you relax in a rocking chair on the front porch overlooking an expanse of green lawn and trees.

No neighbors, no buildings, no traffic - just peace and quiet for you to savor.

Lancaster County Amish Country: Perfect location to check out all the local Amish attractions and enjoy the drive through the rolling farmland to get there! The property is very private, yet is only 15 minutes from the Pennsylvania Turnpike. Shop local businesses selling quilts, antiques, hand-made furniture and countless farm stands to get all the fresh produce you can eat!

30 minutes to Dutch Wonderland, Lancaster Outlet Shopping, American Music Theatre, Sight & Sound Theatre, Strasburg Railroad, Reading Outlet Shopping and so much more.

1 hour, 15 minutes to Hershey Park and Chocolate World.

1 hour to Philadelphia.

Two parks within two minutes of the property: Historic Poole Forge is a township owned park with a great children's playground, pavilion and picnic benches for a cookout, and a 150 year old historic covered bridge that you can drive though and is great for photos with you and your family!

Just up the hill from our home is a county owned park called Money Rocks that has an easy 30-minute hike to the top of the mountain for a gorgeous view of the scenic countryside.

About Sharon Krock

I grew up in Lancaster County and in this house! I moved away after college and getting married, but returned to the area after having children and spent a year restoring the farmhouse. My husband and I like to restore old homes and we are currently working on a historic inn in Churchtown, PA.

Sharon Krock purchased this farmhouse in 2001

Why Sharon Krock chose Pennsylvania

I grew up in this house and we bought it from my parents and restored it. We lived in it for a few years before deciding to rent it out as a vacation rental because we loved the property and house and didn't want to sell it. The only reason we moved out is because we bought another 200+ year old stone home just five minutes away that we are currently restoring.

The area is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet of the countryside, strolling through local parks, watching horse and buggies go by, visiting the numerous historic districts, museums and various Amish and Pennsylvania Dutch attractions in Lancaster County. The property itself is the perfect getaway from hectic lives - you might not want to leave!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a nice, relaxing weekend. The house is beautiful; we hope to own one just like it someday (sooner rather than later!). Thanks and take care. Heather

Perfect countryside retreat

This house was exactly what our group was looking for, really quiet place. The house was lovely, great garden and fire pit, couldn't have asked for more.

All I can say is....wow. Our wedding was exactly what we wanted it to be. A trip back in time.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just got married here...we shall wait for the applause. Sharon, the house, and grounds were absolutely amazing. We rented the house from Thursday til Sunday and enjoyed every minute of it. My wife and I have the quintessential Brady Bunch family, and had the the opportunity for all of us to stay at the house. Not only was there enough room, it was like taking a trip back in time. We had our ceremony on the front steps and could not have asked for a more beautiful setting. Sharon had given us a suggestion for a tent vendor and they were awesome. The tent looked absolutely amazing. I cannot express enough how much fun we had, and how perfect the house and grounds were. We have actually thought about renting the house for our first anniversary. We would also like to thank Sharon and her family for the bottle of wine. Delicious. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us.

Slaínte,

Brendan & Tammi Power

Perfect place for families and just relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this quaint and quiet farmhouse. Very private yet close enough to groceries and amusement parks. It had everything we needed and was very clean. The grassy fields and playground were perfect for our small kids to run and play around in, and the fire pit was perfect for us big kids to enjoy an evening beverage around. Thank you so much for sharing your home with us!

Another wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Farmhouse four times now, most recently this past week. We love the house and property and think it is a great fit for our family. Our three boys love playing in the big yard and on the playset, as well as having campfires in the evening. The house is always clean and the beds comfortable. Even in very hot and humid conditions, the house feels nice and cool with the air conditioners. It is so great to come "home" after a day of sightseeing and relax on the porch. The character of the house and property are wonderful. Sharon even welcomed us with whoopie pies when we arrived!

Fieldstone farmhouse

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place for our family to stay for a long weekend. The large yard, fun play set and convenient hose made our 3 yo grandson from NYC blissful. We enjoyed a bonfire one evening. We hope to return when our larger family gathers again for a reunion. One bathroom for 7 of us (2 were still in diapers) was a challenge but we made it work. Thanks Sharon!
