The space
The home is perfect for you to travel comfortably with many friends and family - especially your kids with doggy paws, but still have time to truly get away in your own space within the Waterfall Retreat. Each floor has a fully furnished 2 bedroom (each with queen bed), 1 full bath apartment with living areas and fully stocked kitchen. The first floor apartment features a separate summer kitchen that is unique to the 1860s Farmhouse architecture, an extra living space/dining room that overlooks the waterfall, & a living area with a wood stove perfect for taking the chill off in the winter months. The second floor apartment features an amazing full bath with clawfoot tub/shower combo, a washer/dryer & an even more amazing view of the waterfall from the living room & massive deck.

BRINGING A DOG? We love hosting families with pups - Contact us when you are booking and tell us about your pup(s). Please verify that the pup is up to date on shots and flea and tick preventative. If approved, it will be an additional 10/night per dog.

There is off street parking for 4 cars or vehicles that fit in normal parking spaces (please communicate in your inquiry if you plan on bringing a larger vehicle), as the parking area is limited.

The owner does not stay in the home while you are there, but will likely be present on the property.

Guest access
The guests have access to the entire home and all of its grounds. The owner does not stay in the home while you are there, but may be present on the property and may access the basement through the outside doors. Please contact the host if you would like to book the property for events or parties, as special permission is needed and other fees may apply to make your event great.

Other things to note
Message me to let me know what brings you town and how we can make your stay great in Lancaster! If you would like to bring your dog or dogs, please message to gain approval. Our booking process recently changed and we will add a nightly fee $15 per dog per night to cover our extra cleaning costs. If you are staying for a week or longer, there is a flat rate of $50/week/dog. Please verify in your message that the dog is up to date on shots and flea and tick preventative and that you will agree to limit any stress for your pet and any preventable negative impact on your dog and the home. If you happen to be planning an event or gathering that requires parking for more than 4 vehicles or requires other amenities, please be sure to let me know in advance so we can plan for those details. Thanks in advance for great communication and look forward to hosting your stay in Lancaster County! Given the current world issues, we are taking extra cleaning measures between stays to disinfect high touch areas and clean all surfaces.

I love treating others as I wish to be treated. I am lucky enough to travel the world with my work - umpiring international field hockey and hosting our old farmhouse on Airbnb is how I make my living when I'm not traveling. I love to exercise my dogs, hike, fish, tinker on my homes and recently became a volunteer firefighter. My favorite food is homecookin' PA Dutch food and diner foods. I believe "Happiness is only real when shared." I thank God to be able to share my blessings with others!

During your stay
I can chat for hours about pretty much anything, and I always enjoy spending time with guests that have chosen the Waterfall Retreat. As long as I am not traveling myself, I am willing to spend as much or as little time with you as your time and travel permits. I love meeting new people, sharing cool places to visit and in general just enjoying life and sharing my blessings and dream home with you.
