Great place

Mike and Lindy were very communicative and booking the room was easy. They were very welcoming when we arrived, and as it was on a holiday they had already called around to find out which places nearby were open for dinner. The room was clean and just as described, and I'd recommend it if you need somewhere to stay in the area.

We came to Common Grounds for our anniversary weekend and it was ideal. The farm is rustic and located in a beautiful part of Pennsylvania. Spent the afternoons driving around and exploring, hitting up flea markets and eating delicous farm to table meals.

I was very happy when Mike gave us the welcome to come on such short notice. We had to arrive late and leave very early for a charity event and needed to find a place where our dog would be welcome as well. The Rose room was perfect. And Mike and Lindy were very accommodating.

Mike and Lindy are absolutely wonderful hosts. Mike came walking out to greet us as we pulled up, tired and very late after being stuck in holiday traffic all afternoon. The room was cozy, clean, and just as pictured. The farm is situated along a beautiful country road but only a few miles from the highway. We enjoyed strolling around the pond for a bit of frog-spotting one evening, and hiking at Hawk Mountain early one morning. Breakfast was fantastic, and the weather was great so it was served out on their beautiful patio. Definitely recommend Common Ground for a peaceful, quiet stay off the beaten path.

I couldn't have picked a better place to get away from the city and spend New Year's Eve than at Common Grounds. We were greeted pleasantly by Mike immediately as we drove onto the farm. That evening, we sat by a bonfire with fascinating company (the hosts and five other guests) and in the morning, we all enjoyed a fresh farmers' breakfast in the main house together. On the grounds, you can visit the sheep, row a boat on a small pond, go for a hike at Hawk Mountain or the nearby section of the Appalachian Trail or just find R&R anywhere in the area. Mike and Lindy are intellectual, caring and philanthropic individuals... you are sure to receive genuine hospitality and interesting conversation from them. I will return in the future.

Common ground offers so much! Different types of comfortable rooms, beautiful rural atmosphere with so much to do. We loved exploring Hawk Mountain and Rodale Farms. The breakfast was absolutely delicious. You'll love this place and the sheep.

We are a happily married couple who have been together for 25 years, and raised three children who are all out of the house now. We have had the great blessing of living and working all over the world including places like India, Australia, China, Africa and here in the US. Lindy is a pediatric Occupational Therapists who loves kids and works tirelessly to help them overcome some of their developmental challenges. She loves to play in the dirt and grow things, including flowers, vegetables, berries, fruit and friendships. She grew up on a 12,000 acre sheep farm in Western Australia and though she's lived in this country for some time, she still speaks with a funny accent.

Mike is from the Midwest, and works in the nonprofit sector and higher education. Bitten by the travel bug early in life, he's lived and worked in Yosemite National Park, completed a 4,000 mile bicycle tour in the US and a 2,000 mile bicycle tour in Europe. His work in community service, missions, youth development and nonprofit management have allowed him to see the world and meet folks from all different cultures - loving every bit of it. He is a student of leadership and community building, and has a masters degree in Organizational Leadership from Eastern University.

Together we love to camp or stay at B&Bs when we travel. We love the outdoors and believe there is something spiritual about spending time in the woods without the noise that we've become so accustomed to. Our hope is to share our special little piece of creation with our guests - to help them unplug, unwind and discover some real peace - on the outside and inside!
