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
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
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.
Our family greatly enjoyed our stay. The surroundings were beautiful, the home was spacious and the beds were very comfortable. It's a great location for those wanting to visit Lancaster and Hershey. The home sits on a quiet cul-de-sac with a great view from the hot tub! The owners made it very obvious that they take great care to make sure each guest feels welcomed and comfortable. We would definitely stay again!
We want to thank you for a great stay !! Our experience with Stephanie and Calvin was great. Great communication when we booked, greeted us when we arrived, and we enjoyed our serene stay with the waterfalls, pond, fishes and turtles ! And what a view of the country !! We took some great pictures ! There was a spa, but ended up not having enough time to try it. It is a walk out basement, and the hosts live upstairs, but they were so quiet with their Golden Retriever Rosie, we didn't even hear them at all during our stay ! We were stunned to see the size of the basement ! There was 2 bedrooms ( 1 Queen and one full size ) , nice decorated bathroom, good size kitchen with 2 tables and 4 chairs, and a huge living room with a futon full size bed, also we noticed a twin folding bed that could be used if needed. The sliding glass door in the living room lead to the patio with a couple tables and a BBQ grill. The house had everything we needed ; pots and pan, dishes, towels and linens, hair dryer, books, movies, stationary bicycle, we even had a piano on premises that my dad loved playing ! We were close to Lancaster, and about 18 miles from Hershey. We will definitely come back if we ever go to PA.
We met friends at this property and all of us were thrilled with the accommodations. And the close proximity to a great little country store was a special blessing.
We had a blast at their house..we we're a family with 3 kids,..they were waiting for us when we arrived and walk us throughout the apartment and welcoming us with so much love.....they have everything you could imagine in the house that u need for cooking, sleeping etc.... love the outside since he has a turtle collection and he was so nice to come and tell us everything about them even their names....definitely will stay again !!!!
This is the first time through Homeaway that we've rented an apartment. We usually rent a whole house. It was so wonderful to meet Stephanie and Calvin. They are wonderful hosts and have a lovely house. It was just my husband and I so we had lots of space to ourselves. We enjoyed eating our meals on the patio where we could hear the rippling water from the fish pond. We also enjoyed looking for and visiting the turtles. Spent two evenings in the hot tub as the sun went down. They thoughtfully provided robes and plenty of towels. The kitchen was well furnished. They even had an ironing board, which came in handy for us.
The location was convenient and in a quiet rural setting. There is a Farm Market/Grocery store just past the turn to their lane (they close at 4pm on Saturdays and not open Sundays). You could get pretty much anything you need there.
We just loved it there! It really became our home away from home. We would love to go back sometime.

Thank you for going out of your way to help us with our flat tire! We appreciated the clean and welcoming accommodations, and our children were fascinated by the turtles and fish. The hot tub was great too. We really enjoyed our stay. Thanks again!
