A SOPHISTICATED RETREAT RIGHT BY HERSHEY PARK!

Hershey House Rental Photos and Description

Beautifully renovated historic home with hot tub in quiet neighborhood

This charming, 18th century brick townhouse (fully renovated in the Fall of 2011) is the closest vacation rental property to Hershey Park, Botanical Gardens and Zoo America, while ideally located in the quiet surroundings of a small neighborhood. Just down the street is a park playground for children near the Swatara Creek, which also offers great fishing, swimming, and canoe/kayaking.

The Travelers’ Post is a two-storey home impeccably furnished with casual elegance and gracious hospitality in mind. It has the feel of a boutique hotel – that’s all yours! The first floor has a living area with a pull-out couch and TV/DVD entertainment, full gourmet kitchen with stainless appliances, granite countertops, everything you need to prepare your own meals, as well as a powder room and washer/dryer. Two upstairs bedrooms, one with a four-poster queen bed, the other with a pair of twin beds, have attached baths that are sleek and modern with glass-enclosed showers and tile floors. All spaces are designed to provide soothing havens for rest and gathering, tastefully appointed with world art, textiles and antiques. The private backyard terrace with dining area is perfect for family entertaining, framed by lush foliage and dotted with decorative planters and twinkling lights. When you’ve had a busy day of enjoying the local attractions, return to your personal retreat and relax in the hot tub or sauna!

Growing up in Central Pennsylvania, Hershey Park was an annual event as a child. The park has grown and become a 'must-visit' attraction, along with many other points of interest in this bucolic setting. Unfortunately, there are very few well-appointed rental homes in this area and I felt I could offer visitors an upscale experience, such as can be found if you visit Santa Fe, the Adirondacks or the vineyards of the Pacific Northwest. I am pleased to be able to offer the charm and comforts of The Travelers' Post. Located next to my art gallery, the house has wonderful historic character and and I have personally selected antiques, artwork, textiles to complement the spaces and create inspiring world decor.

Brant Mackley purchased this house in 2008

This property has an outstanding location; it is the closest rental house available to Hershey Park and nearby attractions. Just a short walk down the road is the village park with swings and a slide for children and the Swatara Creek. You can swim or fish in the the 'Swatty' or rental kayaks or a canoe. The garden and terrace offer such a beautiful, private setting for family entertaining.

There were six of us total and there was plenty of room. Kitchen was fantastic, with a beautiful stove and wonderful dishwasher. Lots of plates and pans - didn't have to bring a thing but food to make great dinners. The house was so clean. There were three bathrooms, all very clean. The entire house has been updated and is very relaxing to stay in. It is also very close to the Hershey Spa!

Just left this house with my family and all I can say is excellent! Three minutes from Hershey Park, five minutes from the outlet and local Supermarkets. You won't be disappointed.

My friends and I get together every year, pick a new city, and rent a house, with a day at a local spa. This house was great, relaxing, beautiful. Far enough away from busy areas but close enough to get to where we wanted to go.

Recommend it to anyone, Brant was a great owner to work with as well.

Great location! Nice quiet area, so close to hershey. The house is very roomy and the decor is really nice. There were six of us plus a baby and there was plenty of room. The hot tub is a nice touch after a long day at the park. Will definately stay again next trip to hershey!!
