Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Wanner Family,

Where do we begin? Everything was wonderful. Our stay here was so relaxing and enjoyable. My son enjoyed running and playing outside. He named your cows. My daughter and niece would run to the pond every morning to catch the "big" fish. My inlaws came up for 2 days and they fell in love with your home just as we did. Everything was perfect and we look forward to coming back next year!

Totally amazing. It literally could not have been any better. The property was fantastic and on top of that the owners were some of the nicest and coolest people we have ever met.

Wonderful stay!

We had a wonderful time at the farmhouse for our family reunion! We enjoyed the goats and chickens as well as a tour of the farm. The Wanners were wonderful hosts!

Enjoyable and educational

  • 5 of 5

My family was in Lancaster to attend our nephews wedding. My wife along with four children, two spouses and five grandchildren spent 6 nights in the house, (although only five of us stayed the entire 6 nights), some were in and out. There were ample rooms, beds and baths. Every one had a great time. My wife said it was one of her favorite vacation rentals. When Jennifer found out that not everyone would be present each and every night, she refunded my overpayment.

The grand children loved seeing the heifers and chickens every morning. Everyone enjoyed the private tour of the dairy farm. I found it very fascinating. The swing set was a favorite of our two year old.

I would recommend this property of any family staying in the Lancaster area.

A dream get-a-way come true

  • 5 of 5

The charm of Wanner's Pride & Joy takes your breath away. As you drive along the winding road to the guest house your heart pounds as the sweet sheep, cuddling cows and stately horses turn to greet you. Not to mention the soothing sky and gentle winds of times long ago. As you enter the house you are reminded of childhood memories that make you smile inside and out. While the rooms are spacious your family will be drawn to the kitchen table because that is where all the magic begins. The living room is a great place for all to gather for movie night after a day of adventure in Lancaster county or just around the farm. Each bedroom has its' own personality and will pull you in to create a memory, while the stars that shine brightly through the cover of night send you to sleep with dreams of the day. After a good nights sleep a roosters' songs or the melodic trot of a horse drawn carriage will awaken you. Somewhere in the middle of the house you will stop and stare, wondering what took you so long to get there. While you see smiles on your family members faces you will see what I have seen and realize why the guest house is "Wanner's Pride & Joy." The house is so welcoming and peaceful, the grounds are stunning and silent before you leave you are ready to come back. I have been 4 times and have already planned my 5th visit. The Wanner family is just as sweet as the house. Always available (before ,during and after your visit) with a smile and never tire of questions on the tour of the dairy farm. A great place for families as it has a cute play area in the yard for the little ones and a beautiful deck on the back side of the house for those you want to sit and soak up the sun. A place great for adults to go & leave the laptops and emails behind. Close to shopping, restaurants and life styles with a nostalgic feel. Three spacious and airy bathrooms; 1 on the first floor, 2 on the second (one with a large soacker tub). Something for everyone in a place where time stands still. So go on make your reservation, grab you bags and head on out. The rolling dew of the morning, golden sunsets and place where your dream get-a-way will come true, warmly awaits you.

Great location for a Girl's Weekend

  • 5 of 5

This is the third time we have stayed at the Wanner's farm and have loved it every time. We had plenty of room for our Girl's Weeked. The pond out back was wonderful for fishing- numerous sunnies and big bass. We enjoyed walking in the area and saw hot air balloons. The house had everything that we needed- bedding, towels, toiletries and a well stocked kitchen. We will be returning in the future for another family weekend.
