About Martha Swartzentruber

Tobie was raised on an Amish farm here in Ohio. He decided to leave the Amish and left home on his eighteenth birthday. Martha was raised Mennonite and while we appreciate alot of the good things we were taught we left the Mennonite church three years ago. We now attend a small home group in Sugarcreek. Tobie also owns his own business called Cornerstone Masonry. We love family and realize the importance of building lasting relationships.

Martha Swartzentruber purchased this cottage in 2012

Why Martha Swartzentruber chose Dundee

When we climbed the hill to see this property it was the view that took our breath away. Then Tobie spotted a dip in the pasture outback where he envisioned a pond. We fell in love with it right away because of the country and the wide open space. We still dream of putting a pond in the pasture and putting more stone cottages around it.

What makes this cottage unique

We planned and built our brick home in 2003. A few years later we purchased the cottage where Martha's sister lived till 2012. In 2005 Martha's mother moved out in a property next to ours. It was in 2012 that we built the big brick shop and decided to put a loft on top of it. Now we are so happy that we get to share this beautiful setting with guest who want to relax and get away from the pressures of life. Nothing relaxes you quite like taking in an awesome quiet country view or enjoying a majestic sunset on a warm summer evening.

Don't let this tiny appearance fool you. This cottage is three stories of adorableness... Very clean and comfortable. TV in two rooms and a hot breakfast delivered to the doorstep every morning. Owner is VERY accommodating. This VRBO Rental is the GOLD standard by which I judge all others. THEY do it RIGHT!!!!!

An absolutely perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We needed to just get away with each other, and this was the perfect cottage. Our son and his wife stayed here and told us about it. They raved about everything and, yet, we still think it was better than what they said! It was the perfect place to unwind after visiting Amish country. Very clean and extremely well kept. Loved the peace and quiet. It rained and stormed our second day there, but we didn't care! The breakfasts were wonderful and very thoughtful. We have been on many getaways, but this cottage is certainly one of our favorites! We highly recommend it!

restful quietness

  • 5 of 5

Beautifully decorated, fully equipped, neat and clean. We stayed 2 nights in Martha's cottage and loved it. The complete breakfast was just an added bonus. Charming location, with a great view of the neighboring farms. Martha was wonderfully accommodating!
