*NEW TO AIR B&B!* The home has a vintage-y, cabin-y feel to it and is easy to relax and feel comfortable in. The open concept of the kitchen and living room makes it so enjoyable to cook and hang out in the space. And we love our patio! We spend as much time on it as we can to relax, cook, stargaze, have a campfire, and listen to or play music. Whenever we can we are hiking and biking the nearby trails, kayaking on the river, and taking advantage of our proximity to nearby farm stands.

The space
We completely renovated our home within the last few years and we wanted it to feel immediately comfortable, cheerful, and fun. We love being out in the country with all of the roadside stands and VIEWS, yet so close to the river and the boat launches, the bicycle trails, hiking trails, and the downtowns of Lancaster and Columbia.

Guest access
Guests have access to all of the rooms on the main floor of the house as well as the porches and yard. As this is our home, we do have personal items in closets, cabinets, dressers. If guests need drawer or closet space for clothing we can accommodate those requests in advance of your arrival. We will have a binder on the kitchen island with everything you need to know about the home and the area (locations of first aid kit and fire extinguisher, closest hospital etc). We do our best to anticipate everything you might need, and so we ask that you respect our personal items and do not rummage through closets, cabinets, etc.

Other things to note
Bring your bicycles, stand up paddleboards, kayaks/canoe, or small power boat! We have ample parking and storage for these items during your stay and we have excellent trail heads and boat launches within a 10 minute drive of the house. If you don’t have a kayak or bicycle, Chiques Rock Outfitters in Columbia is within a ten minute drive from the house where you can rent! We will have a binder on the kitchen island with maps and information for many recreation opportunities in the area, as well as menus and information about our favorite restaurants.
Our next door neighbors sell free range brown eggs from their front porch. Feel free to stop by and pick up a carton-a steal at $2.75/dozen!
Also, although the house does not have central air conditioning, we do have enough window units to keep the entire house cool.
I also want to be clear that there are honey bees on the property, and as long as you stay at least 8 feet away from the hives you should have absolutely no problems, although you may see them collecting pollen from the flowers around the property during the day in the spring-fall! Finally, I want to note that our neighbors have roosters and you will hear them at various points during the morning and daytime but they are quiet at night. It’s all part of the charm of being out here in the country!

Location

Washington Boro, Pennsylvania, United States

Our home is set back off of a fairly busy road. We are situated very conveniently to downtown Lancaster, Columbia, Wrightsville, Millersville, Route 30, and the Susquehanna River. We feel lucky to be “away from it all” yet so close to so much. We have only one bordering neighbor, and the rest of our “neighborhood” is farmland! The fields surrounding us are used to grow corn and rye grass to feed dairy cows. If you’re lucky you will get a chance to watch the farmers work the fields on their tractors and other equipment—it is fascinating and mesmerizing to see the landscape change throughout the year!

I live in Washington Boro, PA with my fiance Clayton and our Boston Terrier Evil. We like to spend as much time as we can outside hiking, biking, kayaking, and riding motorcycles. We love to vacation in Maine (where I lived for 5 years), and visit friends all over the US. I am a real estate agent and I absolutely love being able to help people find a home they adore. Other hobbies of mine include cooking, gardening, beekeeping, canning, sewing, and seeing live music.
