Imagine waking up to the sunrise over Old Mill Creek waterfall with coffee/tea in hand and a view of colorful reflections as the wildlife play in the water. In the winter months, cuddle up on the couch in front of the cozy wood stove or grab a mug of cocoa and watch your kids sled down the Flory Park hill. In the warmer months, stroll out the backdoor with your family to play in the backyard (historic ping pong table that promotes picnicking as well, horseshoes, & croquet available), paddle up the creek or take a walk in the park that connects to the property via the private footbridge over the babbling brook...A campfire is always a great way to enjoy time together, but ample space in the historic 1860s farmhouse has 2 full apartments within that allow the introverts a place to call home...Imagine waking up to the sunrise over Old Mill Creek waterfall with coffee/tea in hand and a view of colorful reflections as the wildlife play in the water.

We have hosted many families and love seeing the pure joy of running in the rain, playing games in the living rooms, bird watching and pups playing and we have been overwhelmed by the respect that people have shown the 1860s Waterfall Retreat, as she requires gentle treatment in her older age.More

This property is amazing! Lovely little cottage split into two. Great yard and waterfall in the back. Owners were attentive and had more than what I needed. You can certainly tell the they care and love the place as much as we do our own...More

About the neighbourhood
Lancaster is known for its PA Dutch Country and Amish communities, but it is also enduring a fun transition in the city that blends modern, trendy culture for younger folks with the rich history and beauty of an old city. You can antique shop, go to Sight & Sound, visit Strasburg Railroad, visit the Wolf Sanctuary, go for a Hot Air Balloon Ride, go to Root's Farm and Flea Market, visit the oldest Lancaster Central Market, eat whoopie pies, shoefly pie, and other PA Dutch foods at one of the many smorgasboards in the area - Discover Lancaster, as our tourist information center promotes!
Getting around
A car is preferable, Uber is readily available if you arrive by train or plane and Lyft is also just coming into the area. Bicycling and kayaking or canoeing are fun ways to explore around the house if you wanted!
