There is a second floor sitting area as well as a full bath with washer and dryer. And, like all Gretna houses, Quietum boasts a lovely porch to sit, relax, and unwind.
The house is walking distance to all Mt. Gretna has to offer including the Jigger Shop, the Playhouse, the lake, the Community Library,miniature golf, and the myriad of benches placed throughout the community for whiling away the day.
Hershey Park is 15 minutes away. The beauty of Lancaster County Pennsylvania, with its lovely Amish farms, barns, and small towns can be found in every direction. If you have never been to Mt. Gretna, you will be amazed. If you are returning, you know why.

Keep Looking. Not a good value.
Look Elsewhere. Not a good value.
I simply cannot understand the high reviews of this house. There are better values in Mt. Gretna. We were very disappointed.
This house has many drawbacks. First and foremost, you can find many bigger, better houses with off street parking for the same prices with more amenities at Penn Realty. I wish we would've known that before leaving. We feel ripped off. We noticed houses that were similar in size were 1/3 cheaper in per week rental prices. Had this house been priced likewise, our review would be much higher. The price charged overvalues the condition of the house.
The house has about a 6" slant from one corner to another. Not exaggerating. You can feel it everywhere, even in bed. The beds are also in sore need of mattress replacement.
The stairs are polished wood with no treads and are about 7" in depth of run. Combined with the slant of the house and they are a lawsuit waiting to happen. Our 3 year old who has amazing balance literally fell 1/2 way down the stairs.
The kitchen was nice regarding appliances, but there are no toe kicks. If you actually use in the kitchen you will repeatedly hurt your feet.
The best part was the fact you're in Gretna, and the neighbor has a fish pond and he lets you feed the fish. Other than that - look elsewhere. You'll get more for less money.
Very Nice and Quiet!
I stayed here for 5 nights and hated to leave, absolutely loved the place and area! Breakfast, lunch, and dinner in walking distance (which I did everyday)! Nice place to stay for quiet and relaxation!
This cottage was above and beyond our expectations
This cottage was above and beyond our expectations or the description and pictures on the home away site. Everything about it was exceptional - the cleanliness, the service from the property manager, the amenities, and above all, the beuty of the surroundings and wonderful community here in Mt. Gretna. We had a wonderful, relaxing stay at the Quietum cottage.
A slice of heaven on earth!
I really didn't know what to expect. But my husband and I arrived late Friday and spent a long weekend in what I would call a 'village'. The beautiful cottage was the perfect location to everything you needed for a few days of fun, activities and even solace. The cottage was picturesque, like an image out of better homes and gardens! The amenities were all there, you really didn't need to bring anything but yourself and some food and drink if you felt like cooking. Debbie and Michael were perfect host, they made sure our trip was perfect. Everything was starting to bloom and the neighbors were so friendly, it felt more like home. There was a triatholon the weekend we were there, however we just opted for the most beautiful bike trail ever and spent a day on that path- it was more our speed. There were jump off points to get something to eat and explore. The lake wasn't open yet but we still had plenty to do and see. Deb gave us a run-down of all the activities in the summer and fall. For sure we will we will be coming back. Thank you for a great weekend.
What a beautiful cottage! My mother and I arrived and it was even more beautiful in person. The pictures do not do it justice. The cottage was very clean and Joanne was very nice to work with. If you are in search of some quiet time away enjoying some amazing scenery this is the cottage to stay at! We definitely will be staying here again and have already recommended it to our friends and family.
