Hershey House Rental Photos and Description
5 Bedrooms, sleeps 11-12, 2 baths, sunroom, deck, dock, 4 kayaks provided
The perfect vacation getaway awaits you in our waterfront home so near all the attractions of central Pennsylvania, yet it feels so far away from the crowds. We are located just one half mile off Highway 322/22, within a 30 minute drive to Hershey and under an hour to Gettysburg or the Dutch country, but you enter your own private acre where Mother Nature beckons you through the stunning views of the many windows. Launch from your own private dock to a kayak adventure among the islands with the bald eagles and wild life that await, or soak in the beauty of the natural surroundings from the serenity of the porch swing on the riverbank.

My husband Dave is a Pennsylvanian, and I met him in 1982 when I came from Florida to work with the teenagers at his church for a summer. We married the next year, and have two children who are now grown. Dave is a Princeton University and Southern Seminary grad, and is currently the executive director of our state convention. I am a graduate of Jacksonville University and now have a career I am passionate about teaching students at our local community college. We both hope to retire in a few years and do more traveling, using HomeAway and VRBO to find our accommodations, of course!
Our daughter Lauren is a surgical Physician's Assistant in Alabama, and a graduate of Princeton and Emory Universities. She is an accomplished violinist and an outstanding rugby player at all of 110 pounds. Jonathan is a Business graduate of The College of New Jersey where he was a Bonner Scholar and a swimmer, and after working very successfully in business for a couple of years after graduation, he has taken a year off to travel abroad extensively.
My husband David and I purchased this home when our two children were small so that we could have a place to get away as a family on the weekends. The appeal of this property was that it felt remote with the natural surroundings, including the river, mountains and lots of wildlife, and yet it is so convenient to Harrisburg and Hershey and all the amenities of civilization. Our primary home is located just a 30 minute drive away.
