vacation rental description

Hershey, Gettysburg, and the Dutch Country at your fingertips, yet you'll enter your own private retreat in this comfortable home on a large corner lot with majestic oak, maple and dogwood trees in a peaceful neighborhood. The star attraction is the large back yard with in-ground pool with slide and fountains, screened gazebo with dining table, ceiling fans, and lighting, and convenient pool house with outdoor kitchen and bath. The pool opens April 1, and the water should be comfortable for swimming within a few weeks. Until then, enjoy the relaxing sound of the fountains as you lounge by the pool. The 5 bedroom home features a fully equipped kitchen with breakfast nook and top-of-the-line GE Profile stainless steel appliances, including convection double oven, dishwasher, convection microwave, refrigerator and trash compactor. Relax in the TV room with Pioneer Elite big screen TV and sound system, or play air hockey with the kids. The fireplaces are decorative, not operational.

Your Hosts: We take pride in providing our guests with a sparkling clean home that has been well cared for, and one that is furnished with many conveniences. You will find the house and grounds well maintained. We live in the area and will respond promptly to any need. We truly enjoy helping to make your vacation in central Pennsylvania a very special one to remember.

traveler reviews for this hershey house rental

Paradise in Pennsylvaniz

Review submitted: August 10, 2014   Date of arrival: August 1, 2014

5 Stars on the property, house, gazebo and pool. One of the best vacations we shared with our children and grandchildren. We love to be active and want to share a list of all the attractions we went to while vacationing at the house. It took between 1/2 - 1 hour to travel to some, but it was always worth the trip! A dip in the pool before and after added to the pleasure.

Amish Farm and House
Strasburg Railroad
Indian Echo Caverns'
Dutch Wonderland
Hershey Park
Hershey Chocolate World
Lake Tobias Wildlife Park
Sickmans Mill and Tubing

Thank you Janice and David

The Pennsylvania Oasis

Review submitted: June 28, 2014   Date of arrival: June 14, 2014

My wife and I took our five grand daughters to spend a few days at Hershey Park. Hotels just weren't be practical. We had such great luck with HomeAway in the past and thought maybe there was a property in the hershey area that would make sense. It didn't take long to find the right one. The drive from Hershey Park to this house was a comfortable 20-25 minutes. The girls loved the number of bedrooms and claimed each with no conflicts. The house is spacious, very well appointed and has wonderful character and charm. All loved the outdoor amenities! The pool is a winner and so convenient when the girls wanted to take a dip. The gazebo offered the two older girls a private getaway for relaxing and chatting. The downtown area of Mechanicsburg (about four blocks away) has quaint stores and shops along Main Street. Nearby (within ten minutes) are major stores and restaurants. If we planned a similar trip with family to the area, we'd definitely check the calendar to see if this property was available.

A mini resort!

Review submitted: September 4, 2013   Date of arrival: August 29, 2013

A wonderful place to celebrate a 60th birthday! We had 4 generations there ranging in ages 3 months to 88 years and there was something for everyone!!! The pool was a huge hit, as was the entire fenced-in backyard with gazebo, bathhouse, and outdoor kitchen. The house and grounds were very-well maintained, equipped, and clean. We really appreciated not having to take any linens nor bathroom/kitchen supplies from home. David and Janice were gracious hosts in welcoming us to their vacation home. We WILL most definitely visit again. Truly a relaxing and restful getaway site!
