This was my first time staying the night on an actual working farm, and I couldn't have been happier! My girlfriend and I booked our room last minute, and Angie was very friendly and accommodating. Our room was very nice, and spacious. Way more than we needed. The price was unbeatable for what we felt we got. Angie and her family were very welcoming, even offering to have us join them that evening to watch the Olympics. We were a bit tired, and declined, but the gesture was appreciated.

The highlight of the stay is in the morning. We woke up early so we had time to wander around the farm a bit. We got to see the chickens, and pet the goats, one of which was the cutest baby ever (Manny!). Then we joined the rest of the guests in the dining room for breakfast, which was amazing. They brought out fruit and juice to start, followed by blueberry, and chocolate chip pancakes. Then, some of the tastiest over easy eggs I've ever had. There was sausage too, but we didn't eat any. It was a delicious breakfast with great food, and some nice conversation with our hosts and fellow guests. Afterwards, we followed Angie's daughter, Katrina, to gather eggs from the chicken coop, and play with the goats a bit more. She also brought us into the barn, so we could try out the rope swing. Definitely do that if you go. It's fun!

It is worth mentioning that you have to realize that this is a little less private than some may be used to. The bathroom is shared, and you will be encountering other guests, and the host family during your stay. We were fine with the shared bathroom, and we enjoyed the interactions with everyone. That was part of the experience! I'm only stating it here because some people might not consider this beforehand. Also, they do not take credit cards, so be prepared to pay cash for your room.

We were sad to leave, but we had a great time, and would definitely recommend this B&B to others. It was definitely a great experience, and for the price, could not be beat.

We had the pleasure of visiting the Stone Haus for our first trip to the Amish Country and it was the hilight of our trip. I spoke with Angie on the phone who reminded us that courtesy, manners, and kindness are not out of style. She was so generous with her time, friendly and welcoming. Our favorite part of the whole trip was the rope swing in the barn-do not miss!
My boys 9, and 4 would have done nothing else but swin on this swin, and dive into the big hay bales on the floor of the barn. There were kittens roaming, and a fresh honor system farm stand selling the delicious celery hearts they grow there.
I am so happy to support Angie in her business-she is so kind and helpful.

My wife and I have had the pleasure of lodging at the Stone Haus Farm Bed and Breakfast more times than we can keep track of, beginning in 2003 and continuing with a recent stay in early June, 2012.
We have returned again and again, driving right by a major hotel and going out of our way a bit to stay with Angie and Merv.
The accomodations are comfortable and welcoming, and the AM breakfasts never leave us hungry, and are served up farm-fresh and delicious every time.
An added bonus is getting to meet so many interesting folks as we enjoy our stay. Conversations flourish there, and we truly feel "at home" while staying.
Who could ask for more?!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are beautiful, comfortable, and reasonably private. Try the "loft" rooms...

We were only going to stay for a day between Independence Hall and Gettysburg. My daughter begged to stay another day and cut out a little of the history lesson. She loved the chickens and the goats. Not to mention learning how to swing in the barn. The family is not only kind but very helpful. Breakfast was great. We look forward to staying again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Merv and Angie (proprietors) are very friendly and welcoming. Our kids loved the hay ride and enjoyed feeding the goats and chickens. Our 4 children did not want to leave! We stayed 3 nights and loved waking up each morning and eating the delicious breakfast. It was very peaceful and the stay was a blessing to our entire family.

Our recent stay at the Stone Haus Farm B&B turned out to be a great time! Angie was very personable and welcoming. My husband and I took our 5 year old granddaughter who loved being there especially because of the 2 little kittens they had just taken in. Our granddaughter also enjoyed collecting eggs from the chickens, feeding the goats and the swinging rope in the barn (and so did I)! After we swung on the rope our granddaughter decided that Angie's daughter, Katrina, who did a fabulous job with the rope demo and instructions, was her friend (Katrina was so attentive)! Our granddaughter enjoyed the stay so much and so did my husband and I. We've stayed at many B&B's but never at a working farm B&B so this was our first. The Stone Haus B&B is great especially if you're travelling with children (many B&B's don't allow children), it's clean, very affordable and a very good value!

Room Tip: Our room shared a hall bath but you can get a room with private bath.
