Our home is a restored 1830's log house, located on the historic Clear Springs Mill property, a National Historic Register site. Not to worry... you'll enjoy all modern amenities, including A/C and Wifi. The guest suite has a semi-private entrance and includes a large sitting area, small kitchenette space (coffee brewer, toaster, mic, fridge etc) and private bath. Fridge is stocked with juices, milk, etc. A second floor loft, accessed from the sitting room, provides sleeping space if you have an additional family member traveling with you.
The 6 acre property includes a restored 1880's grist mill, and 1809 sawmill - used for workshop and studio space. And a couple sheep that let us all know when they're hungry. We are definitely in the country. The small town of Dillsburg (grocery stores and restaurants) is about 5 miles up th road. We're a 20 minute drive to Gettysburg or Carlisle; about 30 minutes to Harrisburg.
We accept bookings of 2 nights or more. If there is a third family member traveling with you and you wish to use the single bed in the loft, there is a $7 added charge per night.
IF YOU HAVE NOT TAKEN TIME TO COMPLETE YOUR AIRBnB PROFILE PAGE, PLEASE TAKE A FEW MOMENTS TO DO THAT BEFORE REQUESTING A BOOKING. This is particularly important if you do not yet have any reviews from prior hosts. We really DO read those things - it's one of the things we appreciate about the ABnB system.
We do not take reservations more than 6 months in advance of the dates in question. We cannot accomodate pets.
Smoking is not permitted. Traveling pets are not permitted. Due to the nature of the space (upstairs loft), any accompanying child should be old enough to understand safety issues... we don't want anyone falling down the ladder in the guest suite in the middle of the night! The upstairs loft is not suitable for the elderly.
This is a quiet country setting. We value that, and assume our guests will value it also.
Another fabulous Airbnb experience! Hosts, art and donna were wonderful, the bed was great, the space much larger than expected. I had freedom to come and go at odd hours. The grocery store was 5 miles away. Planet Fitness was 10 miles away and open 24/7. It was 5 days of heaven! Hope to be back next year again for another conference. I highly recommend their place!
Very welcoming! Cozy, comfortable space and so peaceful. Felt right at home. Thank you for a wonderful stay!
My daughter and I had a wonderful time at Art and Donna's place. This was my first air bnb experience and I hope all the others are as easy and pleasant as this one. They were very responsive to my earliest inquiries about the space and welcoming of any questions during our stay. The space is beautiful with lots of personal touches throughout. Everything was well maintained and clean. The kitchenette was was stocked with a good bit of munchies including granola, yogurt, milk, OJ, coffee, fruit and some wonderful bread. We were in town visiting family, so we didn't spend a lot of time with Art and Donna, but Donna met us when we arrived with a warm welcome and tour of the space. We soon met Art and both of them made us feel that if we needed anything, they would be happy to accommodate us. Will plan to stay there again and recommend for everyone.
A Log Diamond! Easy to find, looked like the photos - the atmosphere of "good old days". Warm welcome, clean and tidy room, food for breakfast (delicious bred), good bed - nothing lacking.
Donna and Art gave us good advises on what to see and do; very interesting surroundings. The mill building is spesial!
A tip to history interested guests: read the little black book in the basket: "At Gettysburg - or what a girl saw and heard of the battle". The book gives an interesting view from a child's angle.
We adored the charming Colonial touches throughout our quarters: hand stenciling, peaceful colors, and homemade cinnamon peach bread. We woke up to robins building a nest. Donna and Art are cordial and kind people.
Art & Donna were wonderful hosts! My friend and I stayed at their cozy, country house to visit my son in nearby Hanover for nearly a week. This location is charming, clean, and convenient (close enough to the highway for easy access to Hanover and surrounding towns/cities yet rural enough to feel laid back for relaxing). Art & Donna themselves are very sweet and accommodating! When we arrived, interrupting their dinner (oops), Art & Donna were more than happy to show us around the grounds and to our separate space. The space itself was so charming and refined. The room was well stocked with appliances (thank goodness for the mini-fridge and coffee maker). We were also welcomed with a homemade loaf of bread, mints, and a stocked fridge with goodies including sodas, milk, yogurt, OJ, and butter. There were plenty of interesting books for those hoping to sit back and really enjoy the quiet of the space. The bathroom was very clean and inviting, the kitchen had plenty of storage, and the desk was comfortable to utilize. Plenty of parking and a separate entrance made this space feel private and comfortable which is great when you're far away from home. Art & Donna went above and beyond to make this space and the stay perfect.
Shhhh! The Log House guest suite has got to be one of airbnb's best kept secrets! Art and Donna do a wonderful job of making their guest feel welcome. We were in town for less than 48 hours so we didn't stay long this time but we plan to return. Traveling from Boston, we drove in terrible weather and didn't arrive until 1:00 am. Art was kind enough to wait up and let us in. Pastry and a fridge stocked with snacks were waiting for us on arrival. The room and loft are cozy, inviting and wonderfully decorated (even nicer than the pictures). The place is close to a small highway so it's easy to find but the neighborhood is quiet and quaint. We can't wait to go back.
Both semi-retired. Living in south central Pennsylvania. Donna continues to work part time in a local garden center, and in her gardens at home. Art continues to work part time in various aspects of historic restoration - carpentry.
