vacation rental description

The perfect vacation getaway awaits you in our waterfront home so near all the attractions of central Pennsylvania, yet it feels so far away from the crowds. We are located just one half mile off Highway 322/22, within a 30 minute drive to Hershey and under an hour to Gettysburg or the Dutch country, but you enter your own private acre where Mother Nature beckons you through the stunning views of the many windows. Launch from your own private dock to a kayak adventure among the islands with the bald eagles and wild life that await, or soak in the beauty of the natural surroundings from the serenity of the porch swing on the riverbank.

Perfect River Getaway :)

Review submitted: June 16, 2014   Date of arrival: June 2, 2014

We had a great time the four days and three nights we visited. The owners were more than helpful during our stay. They really went above and beyond our expectations. We had everything we needed to make smores on the counter when we arrived. Thank you Janice! The house was clean and just as described. There was more than enough space for our family, 2 adults and 7 children. The river views are amazing. This house truly has everything you will need on your stay. We over packed a lot of amenities that are already there! The only thing I could have used were some toddler toys, although with all of the new surroundings I am not sure he would've played with them anyway! The kids (ages 13 years-18 months) all had something to do. Puzzles, kayaks, watching the birds and playing on the pier were all favorites. We were lucky enough to have the owners staying next door so we were given a wealth of information about the area and even a boat ride to catch some fish! We visited a trout hatchery nearby which the kids really enjoyed. We also took a trip over to Hershey's Chocolate world which was about 20-30 minutes away. The house is near a highway and a train track, but neither bothered us on our stay. In fact we kind of liked hearing the trains go by since we do have many where we live. It was very peaceful, we only wished we could have stayed longer. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and family and if we return it will be for more than just a couple of days!

Beautiful Relaxing Family Friendly Atmosphere

Review submitted: November 8, 2013   Date of arrival: November 1, 2013

This property was perfect for our weekend visit to Hershey. The owners are so very kind and generous; they truly go out of their way to make you feel welcome and special. The house is spacious and warmed with charm and family friendliness, you can do so much together right in the back yard with the river, the kayaks, the yard games available and the fire pit. It just feels like a home away from home. Comfortable and well maintained, you will have a wonderful stay. The owners are very honest about the traffic noise with the highway being close, but it is an oasis and it didn't affect any of our party. The location is amazing when you find yourself close to so many amazing attractions with only a short pop back onto the highway; yet you get back to the house and are surrounded by nature. We had a deer walk right in front of our car pulling down the lane to the driveway. Truly a fantastic, charming place. We promise to return!

50th Anniversary Celebration On The River

Review submitted: October 28, 2013   Date of arrival: August 24, 2013

We rented the river house to celebrate my parents 50th anniversary. Right before arriving we stopped off at a local farm and picked the biggest fresh peaches and blackberries I have seen in years. Within the first few hours of pulling up to the house, we unpacked, got all our food situated in the kitchen for the week ahead, and then headed straight out to the river to go kayaking and tubing. That evening we had an amazing meal to begin the festivities. The large family table easily accommodating all twelve of us. This set the tone for the whole week. We woke up each morning to the beautiful river with mist rising gently from the surface. Saw bald eagles, egrets, and blue herons. Kayaked, swam and fished. Had gourmet meals almost every night, and most of all, simply enjoyed the time to be all together as a family. The house had a very cozy country decor with a large master bedroom and sun room that overlooked the river. The back porch was shaded with tall oaks and had a new gas grill. Also, the house was stocked with everything you would need to be out on the water: kayaks, tubes, life jackets, water shoes, fishing rods, and a boat. We had a fantastic stay and could not have thought of a better way to celebrate my parents anniversary!
