Robert and Rose Martin, are a laid back and genuine couple from Adams County, PA. They purchased the 100-acre McConnellsburg property in 2019 from Mike and Linda Crampton. The Cramptons previously owned and operated the property as a bed and breakfast under the name Crampton Manor. Since purchasing the property in July 2019, the Martins have taken on the task of maintaining the property as a beautiful rental property, as well as a wedding venue and event space. The Hidden Pine Barn, formerly known as the Acorn Barn, can accommodate up to 125 guests. The property also offers multiple quaint lodging options for vacation getaways! When Robert and Rose aren’t working on projects at Sanlawr Haven, Robert holds a position as the executive maintenance manager for mobile home parks while Rose works for the Adams County tax office. They plan to retire in the next eight years and are elated to share their tranquil country home with you!
