Be our guest at historic Wimer's Mill, in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania built in sections dating to 1777 and 1798. Unwind to the sound of a rushing waterfall and the clip-clop of Amish buggies in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch countryside.

The space
Be our guest at historic Wimer's Mill, in rural Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Amish are our neighbors, and buggies are a common sight on Stony Hill Road. Sit on the terrace on summer nights, and listen to bullfrogs call to each other, and watch fireflies twinkle from the grass to the treetops. A fire pit is available upon request and weather permitting.

We are within easy driving distance to all Lancaster County attractions, including historic Lancaster city, outlet malls, all Amish tourist attractions, Sight and Sound, American Music Theater, and more. Make this your base for day trips to Gettysburg, Harrisburg, Wilmington, Hershey Park, Baltimore, and Philadelphia. The Historic Brandywine River attractions are less than an hour away, including Winterthur, Longwood Gardens, and the Brandywine River Museum.

A favorite weekend pastime is treasure hunting at the famous antique malls in Adamstown (open only on Sunday). We are a ten minute drive to historic Strasburg. Area restaurants to suit all tastes. Spend a busy day touring, and return home to the relaxing setting of Wimer's Mill. Built in sections dating to 1777 and 1798, the mill spun hemp, wove linen and woolen cloth, pressed linseed cake and oil, and built Conestoga wagons.

There are many country roads for walking and biking. Access to the Low Grade Enola Line Rails-To-Trails is within a couple of miles. There are wooded paths on the property at Wimer's Mill for short hikes along Big Beaver Creek.

WiFi, small refrigerator, coffee maker, and a microwave are available for your use. If guests do not plan to eat breakfast out, rolls, fruit and juice will be set out for a continental breakfast. There is a small sitting area with a table between two our guest bedrooms, with shared, separate bathroom. The room is on the third floor of the mill.

Book your in door business conference, quilter, scrap-booking, or writers retreat for up to 20 participants.

A woodland chapel behind the mill pond is available to host small weddings and special gatherings.

Guest access
Guests have access to downstairs dining room and hall, two fireplaces, and sitting area. This is a beautiful 8+ acre property, complete with stream and waterfall, 3 ponds, garden, and wooded walking trails.

Other things to note
Wimer's Mill is home to 2 friendly cats, who are blocked off from all guest areas. However, this may not be the best listing for people who are highly allergic to cats. The room is on the third floor of the mill.

In 1990, my husband, Tim Kruger, and I bought the condemned Wimer's Mill. It was full of trash, with knocked out windows, and holes in the stonework. The property was an impassable thicket of muliflora rose and brambles. We gutted the ruined building, added structural support, and began the long process of putting it back together. I was a doll and collectibles designer for over 20 years, and we operated a doll factory in Lancaster County. I also did free-lance design work and special editions for numerous companies, and was a repeat guest on QVC and HSN shows. In 2004, our daughter and I started the brick tile company Inglenook Tile Design, which is still run from a home office. I'm a St. Olaf College alumna, with a Classics degree. I split my undergraduate studies equally between an Oxford University College and St. Olaf. I'm pleased to have recently finished an MDiv., and am an ordained Zen priest. I host a meditation group at Wimer's' Mill once a week. The property has a woodland chapel, which can accommodate up to 100 guests for weddings, and I can also officiate. Call or email with questions about the availability and fee schedule for weddings or other events. In the past, I often traveled for business and pleasure. Because the tile business now makes it difficult for me to leave, I am bringing the world to me at home, with my Airbnb. I love creating memorable experiences for friends and guests. In addition to running Wimer's Mill and Inglenook Tile Design, I enjoy sculpting, painting, reading, writing poetry, and playing the piano. I have been working on a book about my experiences and life lessons as an entrepreneur. Stay tuned! Wimer's Mill is my "dream house," and I love sharing our home and property.
