“Connecting with the land”

Reviewed 26 Oct 2014

My girlfriend (Katherine) and I stayed here this past weekend to celebrate our anniversary and we couldn't have been happier. Mary and Russel are incredibly nice people, and so are their miniature horses and donkeys! The cabin is absolutely beautiful with a fascinating history. I'm pretty sure Katie's life was changed by this weekend, as she now wants to own a farm with donkeys. I've already recommended this place to many of my friends and will continue to do so. Awesome rates for what you get! We are definitely coming back next year, if not in the next few months. I would love to see what its like to stay there with a blanket of snow on the ground. Make your reservations now. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

“A perfect relaxation retreat!”

Reviewed 20 Aug 2014

My wife & I stayed for 2 nights - the location was perfect, complete contrast to hectic New York where we had stayed for previous 3 nights. Accommodation is historical homestead with all mod cons. Russell & Mary have done an amazing job restoring this cottage; they made us very welcome and organising the booking was easy on internet. We had a lovely relaxing time, watching local wildlife (firefly display was fantastic) and the resident farm animals (donkeys, horses), cooking for ourselves, reading on porch, visiting local farmers market - just chilling out. It was the perfect relaxation retreat before we set off on a 2 week road trip round Eastern USA. The Gruber Homestead was one of our holiday highlights, worth the flight from UK! We will be recommending to all our friends in UK & USA.

I scored big time on this vacation getaway for my wife ( 10th anniversary ). This place was the "Perfect 10". Guys, do yourself a big favor & take the chance on this trip site. The rolling hills, horses, donkeys, & yes jus chillin' on the porch rocking in those chairs. Russell & Mary have a "diamond in the rough" location just waiting for you...perfect hosts they are indeed. Local wineries, covered bridges, & the town of Robesonia, just minutes away as well.

Russell and Mary are the very special owners and restorers of this lovely cabin. You feel as if you're a homesteader --- without any of the work and all of the benefits...peace, quiet, emotional/spiritual restoration. Imagine Henrich Gruber setting out from Germany and building his cabin in this very spot -and now hundreds of years later, you are "living" here too! The authentic restoration is beautifully and artistically done and if you take the time to read the guest book, you'll see that everyone has an almost magical experience - returning to one's self, and for couples - toward one another. We used it as a base to tour the Lancaster area - including the Daniel Boone homestead which many people don't know is nearby. This cabin is furnished with period furniture built by Russell, has a stove, microwave, sink, small refrigerator, plates, cookware and utensils, full bathroom with a shower. We certainly used the air conditioning this week, and would look forward to a Fall/Winter retreat because the cabin is heated as well. They raise miniature horses and donkeys and you are free explore their beautifully maintained 200 acres. (Don't forget the frog pond in the garden). Give a gift to yourself and a loved one...simply...go!
