Welcome to Little House, a beautifully restored original one and a half story colonial in the heart of historic downtown Lancaster. Fine art, antiques, vintage finds and cutting-edge design make a stay at Little House very special. Comfort and small scale luxury abound. The garden, second floor deck and covered patio add additional charm and outdoor living space. The owner has the soul an Irish dreamer and the cleaning standards of a German house-vrouw!

The space
Please remember that Lancaster is a real city. A certain amount of urban adventure is to be expected. Guests will need to make allowances for parking and street noise. During your stay, basic, common sense security measures are strongly recommended. That being said, Little House is centrally located in one of the city's most pleasant, historic neighborhoods. Please note! The house has no television. A large screen TV with a nice selection of DVDS is available. At Little House, we are bit old school! Also, a very large, fluffy white cat lives in a separate house (laundry room off the back patio) and the garden. He is enchanting. And a bit of a weirdo. He is a cat, after all. He won't bother you, unless you want him to! And I'll take care of his daily needs at a time convenient to you!

Guest access
The whole house and garden will be at your disposal.

Other things to note
Hello!

My name is Pussycat and I reside at Little House with my dedicated personal assistant. Her name is Lisa.

For the duration of your visit, I will be staying in
my weekend residence on the back porch. The old summer kitchen at Little House has been converted into a laundry room complete with a velvet chair and cushion for my warm-weather enjoyment. My food, water and litter box will also be housed in this space! All my needs will be taken care of by Lisa, but you are welcome to give me treats whenever you wish.

My personal assistant will make sure that the bed linens are clean and cat-fluff free. She actually maintains a separate set of sheets and coverlets for guests, since I frequently spend 14 hours a day lounging in the oh-so-comfortable second floor bedroom! The house will be extremely clean when you arrive. Lisa can be a little overly fastidious, at times. Bless her hard-working little heart……

As to my demeanor and preferences……..

I’m reasonably friendly and quite charming, in my own way. I do not like to be picked-up, but will make myself available for respectful petting when it suites me, of course.

I am de-clawed (I was a rescue cat, my Lisa is not responsible for my declawing)

It is probably a good idea to keep me out on the porch. I may bug you a bit about this, but pay no attention. I am horribly spoiled and can just “deal with it” for a day or two.

I do the usual cat things like throwing-up, getting under-foot and meowing for no reason. If you let me upstaters during the night I will walk on your face at 3AM and sit on you whenever the mood strikes me.

Don’t say you weren’t warned.

That being said, do as you please. Text my assistant should any issues arise. She loves to clean up cat vomit and vacuum.

Thank you for your attention.
