An historic townhouse reimagined as a modern, toxin-free retreat space. Centrally located in the historic district, 5 blocks from Central Market and a mile from F&M college. Enjoy a true chef's kitchen, modern design, whirlpool tub, marble-tiled bathrooms, and brand new furnishings in a space devoted to toxin-free materials and processes (Search for "Gimme the Good Stuff" for info on this project.) The home is kid-friendly, a block away from Musser Park, and a short drive to Dutch Wonderland.

The space
This property was recently remodeled, with renovations completed in 2017. All processes and materials throughout the remodel were chosen for their safety--natural floor finishes, zero VOC paints, 100% wool carpet, organic bedding, etc. (You can learn more about this project by searching: gimmethegoodstuff.)


Everything in this home is brand new, from furnishings to linens to appliances! Since we use the space only as an occasional weekend retreat, it's not full of our own stuff, so we hope our guests can truly feel at home during their stay.

We designed our home to be kid-friendly (since we have two ourselves!). One bedroom features an Oeuf bed with optional trundle bed, and many gender-neutral wooden toys, as well as some of our favorite children's books. We chose to put all-natural wool carpet on the stairs leading up to the kids' room to make ourselves and other parents less nervous about the tall staircases in this home! Most bookcases and cabinetry are anchored to the walls, and you'll even find a baby monitor, high chair, and crib mattress here for your use. We can provide contact info for several trustworthy sitters we've used ourselves.

Please note that there is no bathroom on the first floor, and that this townhome is 3 stories tall, and thus not a good option for guests who cannot comfortably climb stairs.

Guest access
You'll have access to the entire home, which you enter via an electronic lock.

Other things to note
The second floor bedroom in our home houses a small selection of products that we carry in our online store. Here you will find toxin-free essentials like laundry detergent, toothpaste, and deodorant, as well as items such as baby wipes and bottles. Should you choose to purchase anything during your stay, the cost can either be deducted from your security deposit, or you can send payment via PayPal.

Central Market is the oldest continuously operating farmer’s market in America, and is a must-see. We recommend going early morning on one of the three days it is open: Tuesday, Friday, or Saturday. Our favorite stands are The Rooster Street Butcher, Green Circle Organics, and Groff’s vegetables, where sweet Earl Groff will give you beautiful, pesticide-free vegetables for practically nothing. If you want to try a classic Lancaster County sub sandwich, get in line at S. Clyde Weaver’s!

On the first Friday of each month, the city hosts “First Friday” events, which includes art galleries serving snacks and many stores staying open later than usual.

A nonprofit organization, Music for Everyone, has placed pianos around the city, and they encourage you to take a seat and play your heart out!

Besides Lancaster's wonderful selection of farm-to-table restaurants, there are many wonderful activities for kids within walking distance of our home:
-The city library is right over on Duke Street.
-Musser Park is just steps away and has a nice playground, and a Farmer’s Market on Sundays.
-Bella Boo is the local toy store.
-The Science Factory (our kids love this!)
- Our kids love running around the F&M campus (which also has a nice track for jogging).

A bit farther afield, you could take a trip to Gettysburg, Hershey Park, or even a nearby town like Bird-in-Hand, which has beautiful Amish farms.

Hi! I'm Maia and I my parents live in Lancaster--it's one of my favorite places to visit, although my full-time home is in New York City.
During your stay
We don't live in Lancaster, so in some cases we won't meet our guests at all! Our parents live a few miles from this property, and are always available if a guest needs something!
