The space
2000 Sq ft home available just 5 minutes from Whitetail Ski & Golf Resort and Mercersburg Academy. Plenty of room to have friends over while you enjoy the privacy of a home away from home. We cater to people interested in the rural living and eco-friendly practices and we welcome those that want to learn more. We have modern conveniences such as WiFi but we greatly appreciate hosting those who want to disconnect from their daily lives. Our primary business is the alpaca farm and specifically introducing interested persons to farming and learning about food and clothing production. We specialize in business planning for alpaca agriculture and livestock and we are eager to share our knowledge. We work to be good stewards of the land and the beauty of the natural surroundings is priceless.

Where you’ll be

Mercersburg, Pennsylvania, United States

We are located just 5 minutes from historical downtown Mercersburg, Whitetail Ski and Golf Resort, and Mercersburg Academy.

The Guest House is a two story brick home, located on a private setting on the farm. The original part of the farmhouse was built around 1900, with an addition soon after, and then a third section added in the 1960s, all total about 2,000 sq ft.   It has 1 1/2 baths total; the full bath is on the second floor and a half bath on the first. There are three bedrooms (a large master with a king bed, and the other two bedrooms both with a queen size bed).  Please note that the base rate of two persons is for one master bedroom where you can set up a crib/pack n play. The other bedrooms are not prepared if you book for two persons. Reservations for three or more persons include preparation of all bedrooms. The fully equipped kitchen includes some staples and there's as an outside propane grill.  There is a washer and dryer, and sheets, bath linens, various toiletries etc are all included.   The fenced yard is surrounded by alpacas.  There is DSL and the TV is antennae, for those that remember pre-cable and satellite!  Here’s what you can expect:

Private tour of the alpaca farm
Fully equipped kitchen stocked with breakfast foods from local sources
Luxurious organic and eco-friendly bedding and linens
Introductory fiber arts lessons (Spinning, Rigid Heddle Weaving, or Wet Felting) for additional fee per person are available.
 
A GPS will get you within a few hundred yards of our lane. Look for the “Long Acres Alpaca Farm” sign. Drive a half a mile to the bottom of the lane to The Guest House. Please text me when you are 30 minutes from arrival and someone will meet you! (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN).

I look forward to sharing our farm and lifestyle with you! If there’s anything you need, please let me know.

Best Regards

Sarah

The Guest House at LAAF is part of a second career for me. My first career was in medicine starting out as a "candy striper" (for those that remember) then a Critical Care Nurse and later Educator and eventually to a Nurse Practitioner in a busy health center for the underserved in our community. We bought a 160 acre farm in 2002 and started raising alpacas in 2005. I now manage the 120+ alpacas and farm and offer The Guest House for visitors to rent. None of which I consider work! We are a commercial alpaca farm with both a primary product (alpaca fiber) and a secondary product (alpaca meat) as well as alpaca sales to either breeding farms or fiber farms. Every day brings a new learning experience!
