Louita was very friendly from the start. We were met at cottage by Louita mother and walked around cottage. Fresh milk and a large punnet of strawberries were also provided. Basis provisions were also available. Good location with nice views in the heart of Amish Country in Lancaster County. Cottage was spacious, comfortable and vert clean.

My family and I came with our 5 children and we had a wonderful stay! They were extremely hospitable! They told us about some great places to visit and were very accommodating. They had a game and cars and a dolly and mini crib for our small kids to play with. They helped us make sure we were very comfortable. Their communication was great, as they responded very quickly when we had questions. The location was really great - a short car drive to many Amish shops and horse and buggy rides! They have a wonderful window in the living room with a rocking chair to view the many horse and buggies and it was very enjoyable to watch. Our children had fun running around the very spacious backyard (beautiful views of the countryside) and sitting on the deck on the swinging bench and relaxing with a book. The beds were very comfortable and everything was neat and clean. We would definitely recommend and we will be telling our friends of this wonderful vacation house!

Loved this homey place. It was amazingly clean and welcoming. It was such a treat to have local milk, eggs, cider, and shoefly pie ready for us upon arrival. We enjoyed the living space and slept very well in the beds. It was so fun seeing all the buggies pass by quite regularly as well as the local Amish farmer harvest the corn field right behind us. It was a great location. Surrounded by a ton of fun, local stops. We thoroughly recommend the Red Barn Market close by, where we bought homemade ice cream and fresh cider donuts. This is worth your money, especially if you love Lancaster County.

A beautiful cottage in the middle of Amish community. A very gracious host who left eggs, fruits, fresh farm milk and yummy pie. It's a pleasure to know Daniel in person and I know we will be coming back.

Everything about our stay at Paradise Cottage was wonderful! We met Louita's father upon check in and he greeted us and gave some quick instructions. The house was the perfect size for our family of five and we so appreciated the milk, bread, eggs, pie, and other snacks that were left for us. The cottage is in a small, quiet village with cornfields out back and a street out front where you can watch the Amish buggies go by from the big picture window in the living room. The location was great to getting to all the attractions of Lancaster County while also being in the heart of the peaceful farm community. I'd love to come back for a longer trip!
