Willow Brook Vacation Home is located in Paradise, the heart of Lancaster County. Stay in our newly renovated, brick farmhouse that was built in1867. Willow Brook farm was started in the 1860's, and George and Ann Eshleman Groff were the first people to live in the house. In the 1920's, the Groff's had operated a girl's camp on the farm bringing girls from the city, out to the farm to experience life on the farm. They experienced riding horses and swimming in the stream. The farm consists of 49 acres. Willow Brook farm was owned by the Groff family of 4 generations. John R. Groff (1934-2010) was the last of his immediate family so he sold the farm to Dale & Martha Hershey and family in March 2007. The Hershey's have a dairy farm and have helped farm Willow Brook farm for over 50 years. They currently house their heifers on the farm and use the ground to grow corn, alfalfa and soybeans for their dairy cows.
