Hillside Farm Bed & Breakfast is a farm home in a peaceful rural setting featuring an old pre civil war farmhouse (an 1821 farmhouse), barn and other buildings. Once a dairy farm, Hillside Farm Bed and Breakfast is still surrounded by one of the largest areas of farmland left in Lancaster County which guarantees a healthy measure of rest and relaxation. Just a half mile down the road is one of the many Amish farms that dot the area and a one-room schoolhouse.
There are two guest rooms, each with their own private bath, in the Main house:
A full, country all-you-can-eat breakfast is served family-style every morning. Be sure to bring your appetite. Snacks are served all afternoon and evening.
Situated well off the main road, we are convenient, yet secluded enough for a "get away" retreat. The back of the house overlooks Chickies Creek with a view of the mill dam and an old generator house.
On warm evenings, you can sit on the porch under the trees and listen to the owls, bullfrogs, and cows. Enjoy a glass of lemonade and watch the rabbits, squirrels, and woodchucks play in the yard. Occasionally, if the wind is right, a train whistle will drift in from the distance. So rural, there's not even a phone in the bedroom to disturb the peace. Wake up to the songs of the birds with the creek for background music and decide which direction your day will go. Rest, just be lazy, or relax and do whatever you choose.
On the other hand, if "going and doing" are your relaxation, you will be close to it all. Lancaster County has many attractions: surely something for everyone. To name a few, there are touring opportunities at Amish and Pennsylvania Dutch attractions, biking on a local bike trail, hiking along the Susquehanna River or visiting local wineries that offer tasting tours. Some nearby points of interest you may visit are Hershey Chocolate World, the Hershey Amusement Park, the Strasburg Railroad, Harrisburg (the State Capitol), Gettysburg Battlefield, and Longwood Gardens.
These are just a sample of the vast selections of activities for those who are so inclined. Of course, you can indulge in old fashioned favorites from time to time like spinning yarns, swapping tales, shooting the breeze, or that all-time great - watching the grass grow.
