This cottage is perfect if you're going to Hershey but also want to be relax a bit away from the crowds. If you go to local restaurants by the cottage, there is no wait, unlike Hershey, and they are very good. It is a short ride to Hershey. The cottage is very clean and cozy - it was perfect for our family of 4. Love the porch swing in the mornings and evenings. The owners are very available. We locked the keys in cottage (should have grabbed the extra key), and Melissa was there within minutes to open the door. If you want a pool, you can use the Hershey or Palmyra public pools for a small fee for the day. This cottage is very convenient and comfortable. Great alternative to a hotel room!!!
