Overview

About the property

Lovely 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with multiple decks perched on the Conestoga River

Discover Eagle's Branch River House, the perfect secluded riverfront perch to enjoy the sights and beauty of Lancaster farm country. Our three bedroom, two bath spacious home is ideally suited for a relaxing getaway with family or friends. It has a 'cabin' feel with modern amenities and is beautifully furnished. Three levels with master bedroom suite with its own private wraparound deck, modern kitchen, expansive rec room with river views, and multi-tier decks overlooking the river and surrounding Amish farms.

On a quiet gravel lane, you won't find a better place to unwind in the heart of Amish country! The Conestoga River is a designated water trail and popular for canoeing, kayaking, fishing and wildlife viewing. Our home provides convenient river access on a beautiful stretch of the Conestoga between the historic Bushong Mill and the famous Pinetown and Hunsecker's Mill Covered Bridges.

Most guests enjoy relaxing to the sound of the river rapids, but amenities include large-screen TVs, Wi-Fi and a Weber grill. Quiet and peaceful yet a quick 10 minutes to downtown Lancaster, farmers markets and all the sights and activities.

Also a short drive to many other attractions including Hersheypark, Dutch Wonderland, the historic Fulton Theatre, American Music Theatre, Sight & Sound, Cherry Crest Adventure Farm, Longwood Gardens, Strasburg Rail Road, historic Ephrata Cloister, Susquehanna River and much more.

For families: we have a crib in the den, extra pack-n-play, infant bath, high chair and stroller available for guest use. Older kids (and adults) will love the foosball table and large screen TVs in the rec room!

Take advantage of our one-of-a-kind setting: we have two bikes for guests to explore Lancaster's winding farm roads and rolling hills, a private rustic trail through the woods along the river to one of Lancaster County's famous covered bridges, or you can walk from the house across the Amish farm path to see cows and horses. Evenings are great for enjoying complimentary s'mores or relaxing in the hammock by our riverside fire pit.

Have kayaks or canoes to bring along? There's a wonderful 90-minute paddle route that leaves from the house, passing two covered bridges, an eagle's nest and beautiful farms and homes. We're happy to arrange transport from the take-out point at a local park with our boat trailer. More adventurous voyagers can paddle 30 miles to the Susquehanna River!

We hope you'll choose Eagles Branch River House as the base for your Lancaster County getaway. Please note that this home is rural and woodsy. If the occasional bug, farm smell or getting stuck behind an Amish buggy will bother you, this might not be your dream vacation! :) We ask that you also respect our Amish neighbors and do not take their photographs or enter their property.
