The scoop: This restored 18th-century mansion is tucked away in a valley on 120 acres between a lake and a park, just minutes from Pennsylvania Dutch Country attractions.
Amenities: Three rooms in the main house and two private cottages are furnished with family heirlooms and local Amish quilts. Most have fireplaces, whirlpool tubs and meticulously maintained hardwood floors; cottages have kitchenettes. Especially popular is the Paymaster’s Office, with its magnificent fireplace, vaulted wood ceiling and creek view.
Don’t miss: A weekend visit to the more than 40 rescued wolves residing in the adjacent 22-acre sanctuary.
