at Stone House Farm
This project is an initiative of The David and Libby Rosen Center for Healthy Families
We encourage our guests to disconnect and unwind while staying at our Inns. Once you check-in you’ll find that we make it very easy to relax. With no distractions such as televisions or internet access you’ll be able to truly enjoy the natural beauty of the smells, sounds, sights of rural farm life. Hear our rooster crow and watch them nest in trees at dusk. Watch the goats and sheep play in pastures. Collect free-range eggs. Cut flowers or stroll out to barn. See the occasional horse and buggy trot by. Live rather than text.
The staff that you will find cleaning the Inn, making up your room and setting out coffee and other treats are learning how to be inn-keepers. This is an active farm with people who have intellectual and developmental disabilities that work daily with our livestock, agriculture, and the Inn. They take great pride in making your stay as comfortable as possible. By staying at the Inn guests increase opportunity for inn-keepers to make interesting acquaintances, learn about new places, become more proficient at hospitality and housekeeping, and share their enthusiasm and knowledge about Stone House Farm & Inn.
STONE HOUSE FARM & INN HOUSE AND APARTMENT
This renovated farmhouse was built in 1813 by Phillip Fosselman who operated a tannery on a branch of Montour's Run until 1832. In 2021, Stone House Farm was reimagined to capitalize on the centuries-old beautiful stone building and the 12-acre lot that when acquired included a pond, stream, wetland area, stone barn, woods, and a large field.
SPECIAL NOTES FOR YOUR STAY AT THE STONE HOUSE FARM
Outside, during the warmer seasons, you can sit by our fire pit and roast a hot dog or marshmallows. You can enjoy lunch or dinner in our picnic area. Take a seat by the sculptures by the pond and reflect.
WE LOOK FORWARD TO YOUR STAY
This is a rare opportunity to stay at an operational farm, run by individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. Once you discover our hidden gem in Perry County we know you will love it. We enjoy the peaceful tranquility found on our farm and look forward to sharing it with you!
The Stone House Farm & Inn House can accommodate a large family or two smaller families with plenty of room to spread out with a large kitchen, living room, dining room, two sitting rooms, four bedrooms, and three full bathrooms. The outside area includes raised garden beds, a barn, a pond (not for swimming), a picnic pavilion, a wooded area, and sweeping pastures.
