vacation rental description

For those of you unfamiliar with Mt. Gretna, it is a storybook lake community near to Hershey, Pennsylvania. The town has a world-renown summer theater, an equally famous concert series, and is host to one of the best art shows of the summer.

The town is a tightly nestled group of Victorian homes located adjacent to a beautiful sand bottom lake. More than anything, the Mt. Gretna is a place to unwind, strolling the tree-lined streets, sitting on the beach by the lake, or taking advantage of the many benches built around the town and simply stopping. Next to the town is a state park, perfect for longer hiking adventures. As mentioned above, the house is also a short 15 minute ride to the town of Hershey, which hosts its own long list of attractions, from the chocolate factory, to the amusement park, to the quaint tree-lined streets of the town that Milton Hershey built for his employees.

Thistle Dew (named by the prior owner, apparently after much searching for just the right home, when she told her husband -- 'This Will Do') was built in the late 1800's but has been recently and very tastefully updated. The first floor features a beautiful screened-in porch (porches are THE thing in Mt. Gretna), a comfortable living room with fireplace, a dining area, a full kitchen with breakfast nook. The second floor has four bedrooms, and two beautiful full baths. Every space and detail in the house says the same thing -- stop, sit, and unwind.

traveler reviews for this hershey cottage rental

Charming cottage with modern ammenities

Review submitted: April 9, 2014   Date of arrival: April 4, 2014

We selected this property in part because of the great pictures and reviews online. The house was even better than we had expected. We came with a group of 6 adults and 1 infant, and there was plenty of space for us all. The kitchen had everything that we needed and we ended up cooking quite a bit. Also, we enjoyed the streaming radio players throughout the house, fireplace, and huge porch. We were a bit early in the season and so we did not find very much to do in the surrounding areas (Hershey was still closed for the season), but we were glad to just hang out at our lovely house. Also, management was very easy to work with and accommodating.

Can't wait to return!

Review submitted: November 3, 2013   Date of arrival: October 31, 2013

This cottage is a gem! Very clean, comfortable beds, enough hot water for several people to take back-to-back showers, well stocked with sundries...no having to run to convenience store for forgotten items. The rental process from start to finish was a breeze. Joann & Debbie were great in responding to any request. Thoughtful attention to details....all you have to do is show up & enjoy!

Amazing!

Review submitted: September 22, 2013   Date of arrival: August 16, 2013

I was a little concerned about fitting our family in ~ we had 3 adults and 5 adult-sized teens. The owner assured me we would all fit and we did. Both bedrooms with twin beds had trundles - one room had 2 twins and 1 trundle and the other had 1 twin with a trundle. It worked out beautifully.
Several evenings we had extended family with us and were able to cook for and serve 18 people without feeling crowded. We especially loved the porch. It was the best place to hang out and unwind after busy days.
The owner and property managers were easy to work with and everything was done so well ahead of time that we had no need to contact them during our stay!
We enjoyed our time sight-seeing ~ we went to Gettysburg, Philadelphia, Lititz, Hershey, Roots, the Jigger Shop and other places ~ but the best part was having a place to come home to at the end of the day. Thistle Dew was the perfect ending to every day.
We would definitely come back and would encourage anyone who is looking for a place to stay in this area to look no farther. It was the perfect blend of late 1800's charm and modern day convenience.
