About Stephanie Greiner

My husband, Calvin, and I both grew up in Lancaster County and we have a deep love for the land. My husband was a farmer until his late 20's at which time he went into the ministry and we pursued missionary work in Nigeria. We have raised 5 children and have 8 grandchildren. My husband owns a hard wood flooring business and I am a licensed massage therapist, health coach and author. Our home is built on one of the family farms and we love to share our beautiful gardens with friends and visitors. The flower gardens and turtle resort are my husband's passion and it shows!

Stephanie Greiner purchased this apartment in 2003

Why Stephanie Greiner chose Manheim

Our beautiful home is hidden away in the midst of the fertile Lancaster County farmland. We are only 5 minutes from the nearest town, but we live in a secluded, quiet neighborhood with only one other house nearby. Since we are now "Empty Nesters" we wanted to share our homey space with others who can appreciate being surrounded by nature and beauty

What makes this apartment unique

Whether we're sitting on the back deck watching the turtles bathing in the sun, listening to the gently waterfall, relaxing in the rejuvenating hot tub or gazing out over the fertile fields, our property is truly a haven of beauty and peace. Many people have commented on how peaceful they feel in our home and while wandering the grounds which are peppered with busy bird houses, flowers and bushes.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This downstairs apartment was amazing! Stephanie was a wonderful hostess and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It’s very well-stocked and surprisingly quiet for being an apartment underneath their house. We would stay here again without reservation.

Awesome experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. This was a "girls' weekend". 4 ladies away from their families for the weekend. We just relaxed and hung out. Plenty of room to sleep. Nice kitchen. Great hot tub! Looking to stay there again.

Not accessible for anyone with any type of walking handicap!!

  • 3 of 5

Accessibility - the facility is in the basement with either 19 steps to get to, or a 10 yard path down a very steep hill or a 20+ yard walk down a not so steep hill - all to arrive on the basement level. The queen bed was very high to get into - not for the vertically challenged - approx 36" high. The other main bed has a board running down the middle making it a very uncomfortable way to sleep - thin mattress. The other main problem is the heat/cool situation. The thermostat is upstairs making it impossible to regulate the temp to your satisfaction. There are two small electric heaters to help warm the area but no way to cool if it gets too warm. However the area was clean, well lighted, well decorated and had very comfortable seating.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, the apartment was not constructed for handicap access. We do however allow guests to drive their vehicle to the edge of the patio which puts them straight into the apartment in 15 steps - no hills or stairs. The apartment is 80% underground and maintains a consistent temperature all year with little variation. The thermostat can be set to whatever is comfortable for each guest.

August wedding 2017

  • 5 of 5

The owners met us upon our arrival and they are extremely nice. Wish we had more time to talk with them and their dog. The home was lovely and very roomy. We had a 1 yr. old and just had to move a few items but overall it was perfect. It's located in a hidden location but yet close to a lot of places.

Glory Way - Manheim PA

  • 5 of 5

The unit was very comfortable and spacious. Loved that we were able to do laundry but did miss a dishwasher. The owners were so gracious and we loved their beautiful dog - Rosie :)

They allowed us to have our 2 small dogs and that was so appreciated. The grounds were just lovely and we had a wonderful peaceful visit.

We would highly recommend Glory Way !! Thank you Calvin and Stephanie - God bless you

dear folks.
