Circa 1860. Known locally as the "big yellow house," this award-winning Italianate Victorian is in the heart of Amish Country in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Exquisite murals are showcased in the foyer and formal staircase depicting Lancaster County's late 1800s seasonal life. Watch the big screen TV in the library, sit in the fireside parlor, and enjoy tea and treats in the music room. Comfortably luxurious guest rooms are decorated with soft hues and boast antiques, stove fireplaces, CD players, VCRs, data ports and heated tile floors in the bath. The Bowman Suite also features adjoining third-floor rooms with many family heirlooms, a whirlpool, exposed beam ceiling and impressive views. A hearty gourmet breakfast is served in the dining room. Relax on porches or the second-floor balcony. Walk pathways that lead to lush perennial and herb gardens, a dollhouse pond and places to reflect on nature's beauty.
