A Slice of Heaven

After a stressful few months, my husband, adult son and I were looking for a place to relax and unwind. Genteel Farm was a balm for our souls! The setting was quiet, peaceful & absolutely beautiful. The house is elegant, yet comfortable, homey and charming. The attention to detail in the design - from the pantry doors and cabinet knobs to the chandeliers and knickknacks on the shelves - made for fun discoveries in every room.. Tamela was a wonderful hostess and we really appreciated the hospitality of a tasty snack awaiting us on arrival and an array of breakfast foods, tea & coffee in the pantry. We spent as much time as possible outdoors, visiting with Emmaline & Josephine, walking the grounds, eating on the back deck, walking up the lane to see the sunset, and watching the abundant wildlife, from deer frolicking in the stream, to playful groundhogs, to heron, eagles, hawks and dozens of other kinds of birds. As far as we are concerned, Genteel Farm is a slice of heaven.

Cindy, thank you for the kind words. I am so happy that you found The Genteel Farm to be the balm for your souls that you needed at the time. It is gratifying to hear you thoroughly enjoyed your stay. It was so nice meeting your family and I would love for you to visit us again. You have been the perfect guests!

From the moment the driver pulled onto the long & winding lane the anticipation & mystery stirred immediately with a sense & greeting of a perfect French countryside & French country manor. The extensive love & appointment to detail brought forth so much charm & delight throughout the home. The fields, rolling hills & pastures were serenaded by the sounds of the stream, the birds & nature’s beauty. You’re forced to shed all your stresses. You have no choice. And while you think you can merely wipe the smile off your face you can’t. Genteel Farm is an experience not just a place to stay. From the Precious Cows seemingly rising the sun on their very own & sharing their warm welcome with their “We’re so glad to have you” eyes. To bedtime where you literally sink into the lush & plush bedding that caresses you to prepare your best night sleep ever. The piano was a distinct & never before seen magical focal point. The closest’s have chandeliers. You knew there was great care, deliberation , love, intent & commitment on every piece chosen. You see I was a weary traveler. This “Wallace Nutting” setting invigorated my soul. My spirit was dusted & refreshed. Wow! You just can’t miss this. The owners through their compassion of others & excellence in hospitality created a Genteel Farm that will have lasting effects & memory’s for a lifetime. Merci, Theresa

Theresa, thank you for the kind words. I am grateful you enjoyed your stay and felt thoroughly refreshed! I look forward to hosting you again on your next trip to Pennsylvania. The Cows will be waiting for you! Fondly, Tamela

My wife and I stayed here on our way to Washington DC. What a beautiful piece of the country. Bob and Tammy are perfect hosts and made us feel right at home, we could have stayed longer but time was against us. We had dinner outside on the deck also coffee in the morning, With a stream that runs along the bottom of property what else could u ask for when u want relaxation. We will be staying again on our next trip. Thankyou Peter & Faye

Excellent, courteous guests. Thank you for making us part of your trip to the U.S. We hope you enjoyed your entire trip, and hope to see you here again. Tamela
