Remarkable discovery!

  • 5 of 5
Cozy, convenient, clean - a perfect home for a short stay. A very convenient drive from NYC, plus it's only 2 minutes from Hershey! Why spend a fortune on amusement park food when you have an amazingly large and modern kitchen with all the amenities to prepare well cooked meals at home! Breakfast every morning at home, and BBQ at night! Plus, nothing is more relaxing than kicking your feet up on the porch rocking chairs after a long day. What a perfect summer treat! The house is in perfect condition: comfy beds and well stocked linens and towels. A perfect, Dutch Country setting for any occasion/vacation!

Amazing find!

  • 5 of 5
We can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our stay here. A stone's throw to the park, but somehow still feels in a beautiful and rural setting - also only 25 minutes (or less) to Mt. Gretna and other trails and parks. The house is amazing - very well kept, updated and well-working appliances, well-stocked kitchen and linens. Yet it still retains a rustic feel with a clear attention to artistic detail that achieves a beautiful charm. The yard is beautifully maintained, and the neighborhood is quaint and quiet. We will definitely stay here again when we are in the area.

Awesome Home!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I absolutely loved this home! It was beautiful and spacious inside and out which made it very comfortable for my family of 9 during our stay! It was located right around the coner from resturants, outlets, and Hershey's theme parks which saved us gas and made everything easy to find! My family and I would definitely stay here again!
