The SpaceA beautiful home in the perfect location! We offer a private guest suite in the attic with a kitchenette, comfy sitting area, and beautiful queen-sized bed. The kitchenette features a full-sized refrigerator, sink, microwave, and toaster and is stocked with some snacks, tea, and coffee for you to enjoy. The space is ideal for 2 people, but there is a small bedroom connected (part of the suite) with a twin sized bed that could be used for a 3rd person, and we have a second airbnb guest room downstairs that is also available (could accommodate up to 5 people, would require a second booking). We love living in this beautiful area, and are very familiar with the local attractions, restaurants, theatres, and events (we've worked for most of the theatres in the area!). We're happy to make recommendations! Guest AccessPrivate guest suite just for you! The guest bathroom is just down the stairs. It is only used for guests. We do have one other guest room also available on airbnb so depending on whether or not someone else is staying at the same time it could either be private or shared with another airbnb guest. You are also welcome to relax out on the front porch or in the yard. Interaction with GuestsEnjoy total privacy and independence, or any amount of interaction you would like. Please let us know what you would prefer. We encourage open communication. We both keep fairly busy schedules and will be in and out of the house, but we enjoy interacting with guests as time permits. We will always be home at night. The NeighborhoodThe perfect location! Strasburg is picturesque little town listed as a "historic district" by the National Register of Historic Places. Known as Train Town USA because of the many railroad attractions in and around town (including the Strasburg Rail Road and the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania to name just a few!) it is also surrounded by Amish farmland. It's a short walk down main street to reach the square with the Strasburg Creamery, Country Store, Pizza City, Bakeries and Coffee Shops. About a mile to the railroad attractions and a mile from Sight & Sound Theatre and Hershey Farms Restaurant. The Rockvale and Tanger Outlets, American Music Theatre, and Dutch Wonderland are all just around the corner from Strasburg, and charming Lancaster City is about a 15-minute drive. We are also about 15 to 20 minutes from the beautiful towns of Bird-in-Hand, Intercourse, and Lititz. Getting AroundThere is free on-street parking with plenty of room in front of the house. We also have room in our driveway for 1 extra vehicle. There's not much for public transit. We are about 20 minutes from the Amtrak Station in Lancaster. Other Things to NoteIf stairs are difficult for you, this is probably not the place for you, as this is on the 3rd floor. We do our best to keep our house warm in the Winter and cool in the Summer, but it is not always easy with an older house. In the Summer it can be warm, and in the Winter it generally stays about 60-65°F. If you are new to airbnb, please know that this is our home. We love it here and love opening it up to guests, but it is not a hotel. If you are looking to stay in a hotel or an actual bed & breakfast there are many great ones in this area. If you are looking to stay in a home with locals then we would welcome you here! Our rates are a suggested donation. Please feel free to discuss anything with us before booking.

The NeighborhoodNearly ALL of my neighbors are 'Old Order' Amish or Mennonite. Last Year, Tourism income in Lancaster County was $2.3 Billion - of that, 70+% of that income was directly related to the "Anabaptist" Culture. I'm sure you can understand why - after all, isn't that why YOU are coming to visit the area? The Plain People (the Amish and Mennonite) trace their origin back to the Protestant Reformation in Europe, where there was an emphasis on returning to the purity of the New Testament church. One group of reformers rejected the popular concept of infant baptism, and became known as Anabaptists. The Anabaptists believed that only adults who had confessed their faith should be baptized, and that they should remain separate from the larger society. In 1536, a young Catholic priest from Holland named Menno Simons joined the Anabaptist movement. His writings and leadership united many of the Anabaptist groups, who later became known as “Mennonites.” One of the teachings of the Amish faith is called the ban or shunning. This is based on the New Testament command not to associate with a church member who does not repent of his sinful conduct. The purpose of this discipline is to help the member realize the error of his ways and to encourage his repentance, after which he would be restored to church fellowship. This excommunication was at first only applied at the communion table. However, the followers of Jacob Amman felt the unrepentant individual should be completely shunned or avoided by all church members. This belief, along with other differences, led to Amman’s split with the Mennonites in 1693. His followers were later called Amish These Anabaptist groups were SEVERELY persecuted throughout Europe. Thousands were put to death as heretics by both Catholics and Protestants. To avoid this persecution many fled to the mountains of Switzerland and southern Germany. Here began the Amish tradition of farming and holding their worship services in homes rather than churches. Many Amish and Mennonites accepted William Penn’s offer of religious freedom as part of Penn’s “holy experiment” of religious tolerance. They settled in what later became known as Pennsylvania. The first sizable group of Amish arrived in Lancaster County in the 1720’s or 1730’s. Today, the Amish can be found in 23 states here and in one Canadian province. Their settlement in and around Lancaster County is their second largest. Because of their large families, the total Amish population has more than doubled since 1960 to over 85,000. Very few of their children leave the church. The Amish and Mennonite churches still share the same beliefs concerning baptism, non-resistance, and basic Bible doctrines. They differ in matters of dress, technology, language, form of worship, and interpretation of the Bible. The Mennonites hold many of the same beliefs as the Amish, although they tend to be less conservative than their Amish neighbors. Worship services are held weekly in their meeting houses. Most Mennonites have relaxed dress codes, and have gotten away from farm-related occupations. While Old Order Mennonites still drive their all-black carriages, most Mennonite groups do permit the use of cars and electricity. Getting AroundAlthough most people use their Horse and Buggy around here, you will PROBABLY want to have a car ;-D Bicycle Riding is also very Popular & a FANTASTIC way to get around the more than 2,700 miles of winding country roads that connect our small towns and villages - Quaint main streets, every type of Eatery you can think of plus charming boutiques and galleries are just waiting to be 'stumbled upon' - You can Lose yourself along these back roads among breathtakingly scenic farmlands, romantic covered bridges and PA Amish life. Other Things to Note*PLEASE NOTE* There IS a SECOND BEDROOM Available with a FULL SIZE Bed - There is the option of using the couch in the main Living Room, if need be: There is a modest increase in the Price per Night, if you have more a need for more than the 2 rooms and require the additional spaces. There is a full bath that is exclusively available for you. The experience you will have staying in my home gives you an experience that you could NEVER get by staying in some 'Tourist Trap' hotel - If you are a TRAVELER and not a TOURIST, you will appreciate the incredible experience of literally being 'Eye Level' with the local Amish Community!
