I believe Cherry Crest Farms is open Wednesday of Chol Hamoed, but no sukkah on premises.

Just wanted to say that this hotel is an amazing option for lancaster. The rooms are really big if you get the queen bed suite which is the majority of their rooms. The hotel was just built in April 2019 so everything is really nice and new. Full kitchen and fridge/freezer so great option for a family.
where did you Daven? Does local Chanda down the road have year round minyan?

thanks! Checked out their website and on the logo it has a cross, is this any way affiliated with Christians?
