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.
What a lovely, restful stay! Art & Donna have created a beautifully appointed place with handsome furnishings. The fridge stocked with juice, milk and yogurt along with fresh fruit, tea coffee, granola and muffins were an unexpected bonus. The whole place is clearly a reflection of the welcoming, kind people they are. I'd highly recommend this as a destination for anyone just wanting to get away even though I was there for a nearby business trip.
This was our first experience with AirBNB. Art and Donna were the perfect hosts. They greeted us and and welcomed us to their log cabin. After a long drive the cookies and milk were a welcome treat! The cabin was warm,cozy and spacious. It was nicely appointed with antiques. Art and Donna's was the perfect base for exploring Adams counties. We were very pleased with our first AirBNB experience. We look forward to visiting in warmer weather when we can take advantage of the grounds.

Art & Donna were lovely hosts and made it very comfortable and safe. The unit was outfitted in antiques that were usable and fit the setting perfectly. I took several pictures of a few of the design elements for my future reference!
I was attending a weaving workshop in the area and will look forward to returning when I attend another workshop in the future.
I stayed at The Log House over the Thanksgiving holiday, as I was in town to visit my mother. I felt immediately at home in this cozy, historic cabin. The guest suite is simply charming and Art and Donna thought of everything a traveler could need (the milk and cookies sure were nice after a day of visiting with family and friends!). I would recommend this lovely room to anyone visiting the area.
We absolutely loved our stay at The Log House. (We were in the area for Dickinson College events and just couldn't bring ourselves to stay in the Days Inn.) Art & Donna are phenomenal hosts - warm and welcoming, and also completely respectful of our privacy. The house is so beautifully rebuilt (with modern conveniences like forced air heat) and extremely elegantly/tastefully decorated. I wish we could have stayed longer.
Art and Donna were incredibly friendly and gracious hosts--it's a very unique, very clean rustic guest-house, with plenty of privacy.
The fridge was stocked with some breakfast essentials, and the bathroom even had a spare toothbrush for us.
Dillsburg is a neat location in PA--close to some great hiking, fishing, and beautiful country.
Art and Donna greeted me with a warm welcome upon my weary arrival after a long day of action! The charming guest apartment (much bigger than any hotel room!) was just amazing! Thoughtful touches such as homemade pumpkin bread and York Peppermint patties, really good coffee, milk, yogurt and granola! A super comfortable bed and waking up to such pretty surroundings, inside and out! The room, kitchen and bathroom were all spotless and they thought of anything you might need, down to band-aids and an extra toothbrush! Just a wonderful experience! I will certainly return (this time w/my daughter or a friend to share it with!).
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.
