Union Deposit Stone Homestead

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Jul 21, 2016
Farmhouse, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 10-12)

The Union Deposit Homestead, built in the 1760's, is located in the quaint Village of Union Deposit, a 3 minute drive to Hershey Park,the Giant center and downtown Hershey.

Our Stone House was one of three original buildings in this historic community. It is nestled on a private park-like setting on the edge of the village with mature trees and a small stream. It is located adjacent to open fields.

At one time the house was known to have hidden stairways and a room to hide from the Indians that raided homesteads in the 1700's. Today it still has many interesting features including the large fireplace that was once the summer kitchen, two porches, a covered patio with a fenced and gated play area.

Enjoy the Home as you relax after a day at Hershey Park or from your tour of South Central Pennsylvania attractions, i.e. Pa Dutch county, Gettysburg Battlefield, numerous golf courses, Zoo America, Hershey Rose Garden, Chocolate World, Capitol attractions, or swimming at the Hershey pool and play area, and many more.

About the Owner

We always admired this home. When it came on the market, we rushed to see it and the love continues to today. We love older homes, the home and setting was so charming it spoke to our desire to part of it's history. These dwellings are masterpieces of the early settlers who used what was available to create beautiful and sustaining buildings. The saying, 'If Walls Could Talk'...can we really imagine all that must have been taken place here.. The best part is location. All the history and close to everything! We proudly welcome you to our home. Come, relax and ENJOY. Sincerely, Diane and Bob

This home was the perfect setting for our large family vacation. It was amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family. Everyone had plenty of personal space and even more space to gather together as a family. It was so close to Hershey park, supermarket and restaurants. The house was clean and had everything you could need to cook and enjoy yourself. I am looking forward to our next visit to the Hershey Stone house!! Thank you Diane and Bob!

This house is fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable time staying in Union Deposit. It really was a place that we could unwind with multiple families. The pictures do not do the inside of this house justice! Some of the furniture has been updated, including two great areas to hang out and watch TV. We loved the bedrooms too and is really suited for young families and people with walking disabilities. We will defintely stay again!

Beautiful family weekend in PA

  • 5 of 5

The home was very warm and inviting. The rooms were all clean and comfortable. The fenced in yard was dry pretty with plenty of room for children to play. Every convenience was available to us and the owners were very responsive and courteous. We had a great weekend and hope to come back some day.

THIS HOUSE IS BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5

I want to start by saying the pictures online do not due the house justice. The house is so spacious and beautifully decorated. It has a wonderful old school charm but all the bathrooms and the kitchen are totally updated and immaculate. All 5 bedrooms are a good size and the beds and linens are comfortable. The kitchen is so well stocked! We were able to cook there like we would at home - they had everything. The property is also amazing. The outdoor lighting is a wonderful touch and we enjoyed sitting outside in the evenings. This house is a renters dream - it is beautiful, comfortable and clean.

Ideal Hershey Rental

  • 5 of 5

Each year we try to choose a place and time where we can get together with our children, their spouses, and our granddaughter (8 total.) This year we selected Hershey as the location. I spent a lot of effort and time researching accommodations. This was the first time I used VRBO. As it turns out, I could not have made a better selection. The home was lovely with multiple interesting decorative touches. The home was historic which added to its charm. The large kitchen had been updated and was very well equipped. There was plenty of space for all of us. We were together, yet never felt as if we were crowded. We grilled out one evening and really enjoyed the beautiful backyard. The house was very welcoming. The owner, Diane was wonderful and responded quickly whenever I contacted her. She provided several helpful hints including information as to where we could purchase Hersheypark tickets at a discount. Her warmth and the home itself made us feel as if we were staying at a friend's house. I give this rental my highest recommendation. If we return to the area, we would certainly stay there again!! Thank you Diane!

Great Hershey Rental

  • 5 of 5

We spent a weekend this spring at the Union Deposit Homestead with another family. It is a very spacious home and keeps its wonderful old charm with nice updates. The bathrooms were all clean and nicely done. The kitchen is updated and well stocked. It is ideally located for a trip to hershey park and hershey world and the attractions. Also just 20 min from Harrisburg to enjoy some of the culture there as well. Backyard is very nice for kids to play. Nice TVs in Sitting areas and bedrooms. Definitely would return!
