Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My son, his wife and four children (7, 8, 10 and 11 years old) stayed in this cottage for a week. It was absolutely perfect for them. The kids loved having the Wii and the videos. The floor plan, the kitchen, the porch - everything was just right for them. The owners were easy to work with and very friendly.

Practically made of gingerbread

  • 5 of 5

A few friends and I were in town for a wedding and stayed at this charming three bedroom cottage for a couple nights. It was renovated beautifully, (modern in some details but still maintained its rustic appeal), spacious yet cozy, clean, and well located. Overall, we had a great time and would stay here again in a heartbeat!

Really cute

  • 5 of 5

This little house is a mix between old and new. Our family had a sweet early Christmas get together and enjoyed our stay in this home. The area is great we enjoyed the Christmas lights in the camp meeting area and walking through the little village, the houses are close but that is just part of the charm. It was beautiful on a cold December weekend and it has to be absolutely lovely in all the other seasons of the year. Would recommend this home and area to those who want to get away and relax.

This adorable cottage was absolutely perfect! We have two little ones so the simplistic & modern nature of the cottage was just what we were looking for. The house was clean and comfortable and the AC units worked great. The community is adorable and quiet but also has plenty to do close by... we visited the Mt Gretna Lake one day and had a fantastic time. Whether you are just looking for a relaxing vacation spot or you're looking for a house to rent that is close to Hersheypark.. we can't recommend this place enough! We look forward to coming back to this exact cottage and making this trip an annual tradition for our little family. LOVED IT!!

Wonderful cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a marvelous visit in Mt Gretna. The house was charming with a mixture of contemporary fixtures alongside antiques. Only thing missing was an ironing board. Hope to return in the future.
