Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your cute cottage! The location was great and there was lots to do in this area. This was the perfect little house for our getaway trip. We had so much fun. See you possibly next year.

COZY & CLEAN COTTAGE

COZY & CLEAN COTTAGE
  • 5 of 5
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!!!

Beautiful, clean cottage in a PERFECT location!

  • 5 of 5
This cottage really did feel like a "home away from home"! There was plenty of room for all 6 of us (4 adults and 2 children) to relax and unwind from a busy day. The house was immaculately clean when we arrived, far better than most hotels. In the evenings, it was so peaceful to just sit on the front porch swing!

The location is absolutely unbeatable for all Hershey attractions. It literally took minutes to get to Hershey Park, and everything else was nearly as convenient. There are an abundance of amenities very close. Being up on a hill, the views at night were spectacular!!

Travis and Melissa were fantastic owner/hosts. Travis met us at the cottage exactly when he said he would, which was greatly appreciated. We had no issues at all with the cottage, so we never had to contact them again during our stay. They were very flexible with our dates, and were extremely responsive when we had questions. These are the kind of owners we always hope to encounter!

In short, the cottage is comfortable, clean, and well-placed for a Hershey visit. We cannot recommend it more highly. Thanks, Travis and Melissa!!!

Cute cottage close to all Hershey attractions

  • 5 of 5
I loved this place!! It is a cute cozy cottage tucked away just a few minutes drive to Hershey. FIrst let me say it is CLEAN, number one for me. Very well maintained and decorated and very cozy. It is perfect for families with children with the second bedroom with three bunk beds. Melissa was very helpful in welcoming us and giving us some travel advice for Hershey. It was nice to be able to spend time at Hershey attractions,come home for a rest and go back because of the close location. I will definitely stay here again.

This cottage was absolutely perfect for my solo vacation! The owners are amazingly accommodating and friendly. The cottage is so warm and beautifully decorated. There were days when I never even left the house! I am definitely planning a return visit and have saved this site in my favorites so I can return again and again.

Cute Country Cottage - just perfect for a Hershey Visit

  • 5 of 5
Just came back from a fall weekend at Hershey and our 'home away from home' cottage was just perfect. Nice place to come home and relax after a full day of fun. It is small, but perfectly suited to a couple - or a small family with 2-3 kids...and very clean. Located just 4 miles from Hershey Park - can't get much closer with the hotels in the area. Travis was very helpful with places to eat and how to get around Hershey. Will definitely consider this for future trips to Hershey.

Charming and cozy

  • 4 of 5
This is a very tastefully decorated home outfitted with everything you'll need for your trip. It's very clean and the kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, dishes, microwave, coffee maker, toaster and even sippy cups and plastic spoons and bowls for young children. It's very close to Hershey and all the attractions. I liked that there was a washer and dryer available since my 3 year old got chocolate on her clothes every day! I appreciated all the menus and brochures. We had a great meal at Funck's nearby in Palmyra. There is a grocery store (Weis) and Rite aid right down the street. I would stay here again if visiting the area. Thanks Melissa and Travis.
