The space
Please check out our Studio Apartment at Stone House Farm:
1813 Stone House Tannery Reimagined - Apartment

The house can accommodate a large family or two smaller families with plenty of room to spread out with a large kitchen, living room, dining room, two sitting rooms, four bedrooms, and three full bathrooms. The outside area includes raised garden beds, a barn (under renovations), a pond (not for swimming), a wooded area, and sweeping pastures.

As of spring 2022, we are a new farm and are still in the process of building our outside areas for gardens and animals. At this time we may not have raised garden beds for vegetables, herbs or flowers, or farm animals. We are currently renovating the barn. But rest assured, we are still a beautiful and relaxing stay!

The staff that you will find cleaning the Inn, making up your room, and setting out coffee and other treats are learning how to be inn-keepers. This is an active farm with people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities that work daily with our livestock, agriculture, and the Inn. They take great pride in making your stay as comfortable as possible. By staying at the Inn guests increase the opportunity for inn-keepers to make interesting acquaintances, learn about new places, become more proficient at hospitality and housekeeping, and share their enthusiasm and knowledge about Stone House Farm. Our farm staff and participants work around the property and inside the Inn during the week. If you support these efforts, we'd love to have you as a guest!

This renovated farmhouse was built in 1813 by Phillip Fosselman who operated a tannery on a branch of Montour's Run until 1832. In 2021, Stone House Farm was reimagined to capitalize on the centuries-old beautiful stone building and the 12-acre lot that when acquired included a pond, stream, wetland area, stone barn, woods, and a large field.

Red Tomato Farm & Inn and Stone Hosue Farm & Inn are projects I started to demonstrate the competencies of people with intellectual disabilities. The Inns at both farms provide training and employment and are an opportunity to meet new people, so every guest visit is important. We are not looking to be 5-star rated, but we are looking for your support. Our aim is to provide a pleasant stay.
