About the Owner

My husband and I have always dreamed of having a cottage in Mount Gretna. I consider myself fortunate in that I grew up within 30 minutes of Mount Gretna. My mother and I love to spend time together in Mount Gretna. We go numerous times each year to enjoy the magic, simplicity and relaxation that is Mount Gretna.

When my mother retired, the one gift she wanted was to rent a cottage in Mount Gretna for a week. I rented a cottage as a gift for her and at the end of the week, we didn't want to leave. The magic of Mount Gretna had touched us!

During our week stay, Apple Blossom Cottage went up for sale. My husband and I fell in love with its charm and simplicity. We decided to buy the 1920 cottage and share it with others in hopes that our guests will also feel the magic of Mount Gretna. We want to spread the charm and maybe even encourage others to purchase a historic cottage to love.

Apple Blossom was an absolute delight!

  • 5 of 5
This lovely little cottage was delightful in every way! Owners Katrina and Chris go above and beyond to create a warm and welcoming experience - from Hershey's chocolates sweetly and strategically placed, to a closet filled with old-fashioned board games, to a string of soft white lights lining the porch. Neat, clean, well-stocked - everything a traveler could want to feel at home. We would love to return and enjoy Apple Blossom in other seasons....highly recommended!!

For my first experience with renting a cottage, Katrina and Chris have been wonderful. They sent us information on the area and even some on a hobby (geocaching)! The house was very clean and well appointed (toys, DVDs, location, kitchen, everything) The water heater was excellent! 3 kids and 2 adults showered one evening with plenty of hot water.
The porch was very comfortable to sit and have an adult conversation while the children watched a movie.
For a girls weekend this cottage was PERFECT!
Highly recommend this cottage!

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5
My family and u couldn't of asked for a more peaceful vacation. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. My husband and I both have very stressful jobs and were looking for a getaway.I called around to a few places and left messages. Katrina got back with me very quickly, and was very helpful.When we arrived at the cottage I almost felt like I was taking back in time. The street sizes were similar to sidewalk size. We parked at the church. "Just feet away from the cottage". The cottage itself was perfect size. It was neither to big or too small. The one bedroom has three beds two twin and a double. The other bedroom has one double. It is perfectly decorated and reminded me of Hansel and Gretel. There is a putt putt golf just around the corner. It's just about a three minute walk. There is an amazing ice cream parlor called jiggers also less and a 5 minute walk. The night were very quiet and the residents all very friendly. I would recommend this cabin to anyone who wants to get away for some rest and relaxation. The icing on the cake is its very close to Hershey which we had a blast at! You couldn't find a better place to stay then Mt. Gretna it truly is heaven on earth!!!!!!

Location

From the Owner

We chose The Campmeeting section of Mount Gretna because it is a very distinctive section of Mt. Gretna. The original lots were sized for tents. So, two thirds of the cottages today, those nearest the Tabernacle, are very small and separated by no more than a foot or two. Many houses are raised on stone or cement pilings, the greater height marking more prestige among the otherwise modest early owners. No two houses are alike, but each has the obligatory and sociable porch and most have beaded wooden siding that serves in some cases as the entire thickness of the wall. The streets present a jumble of corbels, finials, gables, turrets, railings, and the ubiquitous wooden lattice hiding the pilings and dark underbellies of the houses. A few examples remain of 'spider web' lattice, made from tree branches stripped of bark and smoothed by a century of rain. The United Methodist Church and the adjacent Tabernacle are set right into the Camp meeting community of homes. At least a dozen residents can attend summer Tabernacle events and church services right from their quaint porches.

Amenities

From the Owner

Mount Gretna is very unique in that it is a Chautauqua community. Mt. Gretna was developed as a Chautauqua community, a lifestyle philosophy coming out of New York’ s Chautauqua in the late 1800’s through the early 1900’s. Communities, such as Mt. Gretna are designed to combine art, music, literature, and learned discussion with the beauty of nature. During the turn of the 20th Century, the railroad would bring people into Mt. Gretna to enjoy the healthy and educational activities it provided. Today the railroad that brought visitors at the turn of the 20th Century has been turned into a beautiful 'rails to trails' for biking and hiking. The historic buildings continue to be enjoyed by residents and visitors for art, music, literature and live theatre. Life in Mount Gretna is a lifestyle of tranquility, education and nature.
