The Space

**Only renting single days Dec-Feb Months**
Lancaster county is beautiful and many people come to see the amish, but why would you want to spend a night in a small hotel when you can have a house to yourself? You will have WIFI, cable, kitchen, dining, living. One bath and three bedrooms with 4 beds total. There is also a cot. You will have the whole house to yourself while you stay. The house is private and not attached to any other.

I charge $76 for weekday nights and $99 for weekend nights. I charge $20 per person per night over 2 people. These are the current rates but might be lowered during the winter. I get a lot of questions about pricing from people using the mobile app so that is why I have the pricing in the description.

The neighborhood is nice and safe. The house is about a mile from the shopping outlets and also bigger stores like walmart and target. Its located 40 minutes from Hershey Park and an hour from Philadelphia. Dutch Wonderland is about a mile away.

The house has a hair dryer, iron, washer, dryer, dish washer, TV. There is also disposable razors, shampoo, conditioner, and clean towels.

You will have two keys to the front door during your stay.

There is public transit in Lancaster. I see the buses go by the house but never used them. In the city there is a train that will take you to Philadelphia or Harrisburg.

I have 4 beds and 3 bedrooms. I have 3 Queens, a full. They are tempurpedic foam mattresses.

There is a treadmill and I have some dumbbells but not many.

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is safe and friendly. The road out front is busy during the day. My neighbors are friendly and will say hi if you acknowledge them.

Getting around

There is public transit in this area but I have not used it.

  • Shane (email hidden) -- very responsive from our initial inquiry to any follow-up questions we had! He made the entire process seamless and easy.

    The house is very spacious and comfortable, with ample sleeping spaces and a large well-stocked kitchen -- as well as welcomed air conditioning for when the temperature climbs. Our dogs loved the big backyard and we spent quite a bit of time relaxing under the shade of beautiful maple tree.

    As for the location, it couldn't have been any more convenient! A great overall value. Thanks again!

  • Trying out airbnb for the first time and was not dissapointed. I only wish we had been able to share the rental with more family and friends. It was huge! The green room has the softest bed ever and it was amazing. Shane had the AC going ready for us after a hot day at Dutch wonderland. Although we never met, Shane was always available and (email hidden) to deliver when we spend an hour calling all over hah. Very close to lots of attractions. There was a nice washer and dryer so we didnt have to go home to lots of laundry on top of the unpacking, just put away the cleaning cloths. Nice big yard and lots of fire flies.

  • Comparing to the very reasonable price, Shane house is the spot. The best part is the kitchen. He has a big beautiful kitchen with all cookware and utensils you need. Shane is always responding on time. I Spent good time there!

  • Shane had a lot of space available for a small group. We enjoyed being able to stay together, and he provided all the linens and coffee for the group. The house had plenty of A/C units, but because it wasn't central air, window units were noisy in the summer. That was the only reason for the 4 stars. Shane was very responsive and easy to work with. He made it convenient to access the house when he wasn't home and provided everything you'd need for your stay.

  • The house was great! Although we didn't get to meet Shane, helpful instructions were left for us. The house was clean and comfortable, and as we expected from the photos. If in the Lancaster area again, we would be keen to stay there again!
    I would also recommend this house to anybody planning to visit this area.

  • I had the recent good fortune to stay at Shane's home in Lancaster, PA. My trip was not for pleasure, but to visit an ill relative.

    Shane could not have been more accommodating. A rogue heatwave was forecast for the two days I had booked and, although it was still springtime, Shane immediately made sure that I had air conditioning.

    The small frontage shot of this home belies the square footage behind it! I was pleasantly surprised to find three large bedrooms and especially unexpected (email hidden) kitchen. Shane is much too modest in his description. The location of this home is within minutes of a major supermarket, pharmacy, restaurants, etc. I could not have found a more perfect place to stay nor a more gracious host. For this price, you could not do better in Lancaster County!

    I would highly recommend this house for anyone or large family (four double beds were available!) for a visit to Lancaster.

  • The house was much better than our expectations before our arrival. Shane met us at the house and gave us a walk thru orientation and was very helpful and responded promptly to all calls. We were there for a month and the house was awesome.

  • Shane's house has become almost a 2nd home... A very comfortable and welcoming space. right in the middle of everything but still quiet and peaceful.

I like to travel and drink coffee. I hope I meet some cool people on airbnb, but the main purpose is to give someone a place to stay. I am very casual as long as you aren't trashing my place. A study showed Lancaster was the happiest county in the U.S. for the year 2012. I have yet to look up the details on this study but I don't doubt it.
