The Stoltzfus family has such a wonderful pair of rental offerings with the Cottage and Loft (our favorite). The wife and I enjoy being close to all our favorite farm and market stops, yet away from 340 or 30. I can't imaging staying in a chain hotel after staying here. A couple of our favorite farm stands to visit are... More

We learned of the Cottage and Loft through the owners mother on a visit last year. We stayed at the Cottage and amazing doesn't quite cover it. The cottage was clean and well stocked. If you need something the owners live about 200 feet away. Mornings we watched the sun rise over the corn fields from the chairs just outside... More

A "room with a view" staying in "rural off the main road"....near everything you want to see and buy! We were lucky to experience the famous Mud Sale and be able to stay alongside the Amish and rub shoulders with them.

Our stay in the Loft was fantastic. We loved having space to spread out compared to a standard motel room, plus everything was immaculate. Owners were very helpful with area attractions and anything we needed. This place is out of town but not far, so best of both worlds in that you feel less like a tourist but are still... More

We rented the "loft" Columbus Day weekend. We WILL be back! Been trying to use the small Inns and other non-chain lodging when we travel. Waited too late to make reservations for another Inn in the area. Found this on TA with 1 recent review. I think travelers have been keeping a secret! At the risk of letting a secret... More

My family and I recently stayed at the Loft located at the Stoltzfus family residence. The Loft is a separate building than the main house and is the loft of their garage. The pictures posted on their website are wonderful looking but when you actually arrive at the Loft, it is beyond what you expect. It is beautiful, comfortable and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The property is surrounded by Amish farmland and an Amish school house. You will see our Amish neighbors walking, pushing scooters or in their buggies using the farm lane directly beside the cottage. The grounds are also home to six children and two dogs so you may hear barking or bouncing basketballs. ... more   less

“The loft is bigger then the cottage but the cottage opens up right onto the garden”

“This is a family residence so there is no sign in front of the home to show you where the place is located and their house number was hard to find. Ask them for directions and don't try arriving at dark. There are no street lights on Church Road.”
