Description from owner

This beautiful 4424 sq. ft. home was built in 2000, with the latest in "Green", energy efficient, materials and design. You'll enjoy relaxing by the fireplace in the living room, dining room, and master bedroom and bathroom, OR on the huge screened porch, OR by the pool, OR exploring the woods that surround the house, OR reconnecting with family and friends - talking, playing games, cooking, eating, toasting marshmallows at the camp fire.

All rooms are spacious, with large windows, and great views. The kitchen has a breakfast bar, all appliances, and is stocked with everything you'll need to prepare and serve meals. The dining room seats 16, or you can eat on the 16 'x 31' screened porch. The master suite has a king size bed, and the bath features a 2 person whirlpool tub and a 2 person walk in shower. The other 4 bedrooms have a queen bed, and 2 also have a double bed. With the sofa bed in the living room, crib, and cot, and the queen futon in the pool house, sleeps 20.

The house is about 450' from the quiet street, and 300' from the neighboring homes.

We have a VERY nice 20'x 20' gazebo (w/ rest room ) in the woods, next to a level yard for a LARGE tent, and the picnic area - PERFECT for outdoor weddings & receptions, reunions, etc. The photo shows it while under construction in Fall '12.

We have another similar house next door, w/5BR + 5 baths, at the same price & terms. All located within 1/2 hr. of Hershey, Lancaster, Reading, and many small towns.

Beds: 1 King Bed, 5 Queen Beds, 2 Double Beds, 1 Twin Bed, 1 Sofa Bed, 1 Crib

“family reunion in Ephrata”

Reviewed 9 Aug 2013

My siblings, their children and grandchildren stayed in this home (13 of them). It was comfy and nicely decorated. My family, children, spouses and grandchildren (17) stayed nearby in a companion home. We has a pool between us and a gazebo and fire pit for campfires and smores (yummy). The accommodations were lovely, and exceeded our expectations. It was near attractions in town and group-friendly restaurants. We were also able to cook half the nights in our rental as both homes have large screen porches with BBQ (gas) and room for all 30 of us. Hershey and Lancaster are a short 20-40 minute drive away. I would highly recommend both homes for a family reunion or group retreat. The owners were friendly and helpful. We were fortunate to have cool (for July) night temps and turned off the AC, but it was fully available if needed. The washer and dryer and all appliances were convenient. We enjoyed our stay and the family would consider returning when the Pennsylvania branch chooses where to locate our annual event. Another plus was the beautiful shrubs and flowering garden, the property is well cared for and made us feel at home.

Owner's reply: We glad you had good times here. It's always nice to see family & friends enjoying their time together. Lovely family. We'll be happy to see you again. Best wishes, Bonnie Martin
