Leola Meadow View Guest House

Leola Meadow View Guest HouseThis comfortable guesthouse is located on a traditional Mennonite family farm in Leola, Lancaster County. We invite you to enjoy the beauty and peace & quiet of our Pennsylvania Dutch countryside.  You’ll see crops in the fields and cows, horses, pigs & kittens in the barn and surrounding meadows.  Depending on the time of year and the length of your stay, possible activities include a tour of the farm, bottle feeding a calf, petting the kittens and bouncing on the trampoline. The Leola Meadow View Guest House is located in a beautiful part of Lancaster County surrounded by Amish farms and near various Amish shops. We would be happy to arrange a dinner at a local Amish home during your stay.

Two popular Amish Quilt shops, Riehl’s Quilts & Crafts and Country Lane Quilts, are within walking distance (about 1 mile). The villages of Bird-in-Hand and Intercourse are a short 10 minute drive, and countless other Lancaster County attractions are within easy reach.Esther, Ed & family

“We walked into a charming cottage welcomed by beautiful music, lighting and Esther right next door! It was very relaxing and the accommodations were excellent. Her cookies are yummy! It was immaculate which is a blessing. Staying in their cottage was so much better than any local hotel. Delightful.” – Gabrielle from Prospect Park, PA · February 2017

“Esther is fantastic, her place is fantastic, if you want to feel like home outside of home, this is the place and host for you. Beautiful barn, well located. Snacks, juice,drinks provided. I would stay here again in a heartbeat! Thanks Esther!” – Sebastian from Greenville, SC · January 2017 

“Our time in Lancaster County was made so much more pleasurable in that we had a nice clean homey place to return to each evening. Although we arrive Thanksgiving Day, Esther took the time that evening to greet us with a hug and smile. The fresh baked cookies she had for us didn’t last long. Each morning we trotted off to a nearby destination and our 5 yr old was captivated by every horse and buggy he saw. We couldn’t have asked for a better location; it seemed every place we wanted to visit was just down the road. We want to come back soon.” – Jeff from Kearneysville, WV · November 2016

“We loved every moment of our stay with Esther & Ed! Their home was comfy, cozy, clean, and filled with tons of country charm and love! Esther was incredibly welcoming and sweet. She made us feel at home from our very first contact to our wonderful greeting in her driveway. Our 3 year son was instantly at home with the trucks, books, and homemade chocolate chip cookies left for us upon our arrival. We knew this was going to be a great family trip, but staying in this home, made it even better than we could have imagined. The farm was beautiful in its country setting and the sights and sounds of animals mesmerized our little one. We cannot wait to come back again.” – Nina from Bridgeton, NJ · November 2016

“Ed’s and Esther’s place is a true gem. It is located on a beautiful, well kept farm with few cows and horses and with two huge red barns. The house is very cozy, spotless and warm. Esther made sure we were settled in, and had everything we needed. She left delicious homemade cookies for us in the kitchen as well as milk and juice in the fridge. The whole family is very friendly, caring and generous. The location is great because it is off the main tourist roads. You truly feel at peace on the farm watching the horses play and the a occasional buggy go by in the distance, but Lancaster City is just 25 minutes away. There are many Amish craft and food shops very close to the house. This was our our favorite trip in a very long time!” – Sergey, 2016

We have stayed in motels, hotels, and resorts in Lancaster, so we wanted to try something different. What an unexpected pleasure. We met Esther and she showed us around. The cottage is perfect. We actually got a great cell signal, even out there. When they say your breakfast is self serve it is because your fridge is stocked with homemade yogurt, cinnamon rolls, eggs, milk, apple juice, butter, cereals, poptarts, keurig coffee and tea, and lots of love. The bed, couch, and recliner were all comfortable. It was so different not hearing a television, rather we heard roosters and the sound of nature every morning. We tried hard getting back to our room before dark because we didn't want to drive on those narrow, lightless roads at night. /which means we ate around 5 every night got back to Leola Meadow View around 7 every night. We sat at the dinner table and payed board games. Ed and Esther had a couple of games there as well. Thank you for such a great time and being wonderful hosts.

Thank you for your thoughtful review. We agree that the Leola Meadow View Guesthouse is a wonderful place to stay!

We loved staying at Esther's cottage with our 2 boys! The cottage is superclean and very nicely decorated. Esther is a wonderful and very helpful host. Our boys loved playing on the trampoline and playing soccer in the grass next to the house. My husband and I really enjoyed the great view over the fields and the sun set. Very relaxing stay! I can really recommend it!

Thank you for your review. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay at the Leola Meadow View Guesthouse!

Our stay

Ed & Esther’s place was absolutely amazing! Couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay. This was our first time ever staying at a BnB  and we couldn’t have been happier except to have been able to stay longer and enjoy the area more! The place was very clean and well kept! Esther was there to greet us and show us everything we needed ..... not to mention there was food in cabinet and fridge for us and fresh baked cookies!!!! I hope we can make it back again one day to have more time to look around and spend w the animals! Loved the area! What a beautiful place! Thanks so much again for having us!
