Come to Pennsylvania Dutch Country, a picturesque area of covered bridges, neatly painted farmhouses and patchwork-quilt pastures. Sun Retreats Lancaster County is a great home base when exploring this restful countryside.
To get an overview of the area, we recommend taking a tour such as one offered by Brunswick. This company offers innovative tour packages that are perfectly suited to your needs. Tour options include self-guided, private guides, and groups on a coach bus. Explore a destination like Lancaster County, or take a themed tour around topics like agriculture and history.
An array of museums in Lancaster County provide a fascinating glimpse into the Amish way of life. One of our favorites is the Amish Village in nearby Strasburg. Here you can tour an 1840s farmhouse and the surrounding 12-acre grounds that include a historic one-room schoolhouse.
Don't leave the area without sampling authentic Amish cuisine, which is characterized by hearty, savory dishes and melt-in-your-mouth baked goods. Pennsylvania Dutch Country also boasts antique, flea and farmers' markets, along with attractions like Shartlesville's Roadside America, a miniature village depicting an idyllic small town in our nation.
This part of the country is rich in wonderful historical attractions. The Gettysburg Battlefield lies less than two hours from Lake in Wood, while Valley Forge National Historical Park is just an hour away, situated near the shopping hub of King of Prussia. After your time at Valley Forge, drive half an hour east to Philadelphia and witness American landmarks like the Liberty Bell.
The extensive grounds of Sun Retreats Lancaster County are a lovely setting for family fun. Our on-site lake is perfect for fishing and guests of all ages can rent rowboats and pedal boats for a day on the water. There are also facilities for sports activities that include basketball, softball, volleyball, shuffleboard, a miniature golf course, and quoits, a popular English game that's similar to horseshoes. If you're looking for wheels, try renting a bicycle, Fun Cycle, or Joy Rider, all of which offer an exciting way to explore our woodsy retreat.
If that's not enough, other options involve hiking along the fitness trail, playing billiards, and painting ceramics on the store patio. Try a delicious meal at the on-site Gnome Café or spend some time in the pool complex that features a large indoor/outdoor pool as well as interactive water features in the kiddie pools! Perhaps the cherry on top of this camping sundae is the packed schedule of planned events that includes Barbecue Weekend, Olympics Weekend, and Chili Cook-Off Weekend.
There are plenty of ways to stay, ranging from spacious RV spots to forested tent sites and a fantastic selection of cabins and cottages. Best of all are the unique vacation rentals. Stay in a tree house, yurt, or double decker bus during your stay! Our wide range of options ensures that every guest can find the perfect site.
