Pennsylvania Adventures

Tyler and I are notorious for spur of the moment AirB&B trips. I mean, we’re talking book-now-and-figure-out-the-details-later kind of trips. This was one of those - and it did not disappoint.

I stumbled across this house on AirB&B one day when I was looking for a weekend home in Lancaster, PA. We both love the area and have been several times. The hills and winding roads are just breathtaking to witness and I’m always so intrigued to observe the Amish lifestyle. Tucked away in the heart of Honeybrook, PA, this amazing little home was like it was decorated just for me.

Chris and Claudia, (the owners of Chris & Claude Co.) are mennonite real estate agents/retro-styled interior designers. Once I found this house, I had to find the owners; so I began my research. I quickly was able to find the couple’s instagram account and was instantly in love.

I was brought up listening to my mom’s cassette tapes of bands like Bread, The Who, The Beatles, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, Journey, and Foreigner. This entire house gave me all those vibes. The details of this home were spectacular - from the old floral pattern couch, the crochet blankets, right down to the side table cassette tape players in several rooms. The time, effort, and attention to detail that this couple had are simply phenomenal. The 3 bedroom, one bathroom home was able to sleep our family of seven comfortably. It was SO clean, SO spacious, and was such a great opportunity to just unwind from the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives. The hosts were even kind enough to leave a basket of snacks and drinks on the kitchen counter as a “welcome” gift, too. HOW THOUGHTFUL!? The bathroom was stocked with toilet paper, the most amazing smelling shampoo, conditioner, and body wash, and the softest towels and washcloths ever. The beds were neatly made with fresh linens, puffy pillows, and adorable vintage throw blankets.

We were able to cook a delicious meal on the grill, sit at the table all together ( a rare occurrence), and the kids even enjoyed the patio chairs and table where they shared a macaroni dinner for two on the first night there. (The sweetest ever!) Saturday we spent the day at Hershey Park which was about an hour away but the commute was a breeze. Coming back from Hershey it was super late, but the home was well-lit with beautiful outdoor lights that illuminated the entire yard and made it easy to venture around in the dark with two very tired kiddos.

If you’re looking for a weekend getaway, look no further. Check out Chris & Claude’s website here. You won’t be disappointed!
