Our apartment is off the beaten path, located on a quiet wooded hillside overlooking Amish farms. It is a peaceful relaxing place where vacationers may want to enjoy extended stays. The apartment door opens onto a terraced garden with paths, benches, fire pit, swing, and garden house. Guests may want to sit and enjoy a book or cup of coffee while listening to the call of birds, hearing water splashing in the pond, the croaking of pond frogs, or the clip-clop of Amish horses on the road below.
Enjoy a drive through the country side passing Amish and Mennonite farms. Drive through numerous covered bridges, go past old mills, church meeting houses, one room country schools and lovely old homes from the 1700's. Stop in at the Mennonite Information Center a mile from the apartment and visit with the older Mennonite gentlemen there.
We have five acres of wooded area. The apartment and outside space is for our guests.
Interaction with guests
I am always ready to provide any help a guest may want.
Other things to note
We are located between Philadelphia and Harrisburg and not far from the historic sights of Ephrata and Lititz. There are many places of interest within a 16 mile radius and beyond like Longwood Gardens, the Brandywine, and Hershey Park.

My husband and I are retired. Thirty-four years ago we designed and built our home on a wooded hillside over looking a lovely farming valley . The apartment in the lower level of our house has served many guests over the years.
We enjoy having guests and trust their experience here at Fern Wood will always be satisfying.
