Boiling Springs House Rental Photos and Description
House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9)
This is your opportunity to stay at a very special property which is only minutes from the delights of Hershey (25 minutes), the history of Gettysburg (40 minutes)/Harrisburg (15 minutes), and Lancaster (50 minutes), or the summer or winter fun of Ski Round Top (15 minutes).
The “Wright Retreat” is a home that was designed in 1963 by a student of Frank Lloyd Wright. The home is set on a beautiful 7 acre wooded lot at the end of a quarter mile long driveway. Relax on the large 2-level back patio, overlooking the treed acreage and pool, and enjoy only the sounds and sights of the wide variety of birds (including hawks and eagles), deer and an occasional fox, or, host an event (wedding, retreat) for family and friends.
The unique aspects of this one level, 4,200 square foot home include a large corner fireplace in the living room (one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s signature features), a smaller fireplace in the master bedroom suite and a wood burning stove in the family room; built-in couches and bookshelves in the large open living room and in the family room, adjacent to the kitchen; built in desks, planters and dressers abound throughout the home; and skylights in the kitchen and master bathroom enhance the warm of the home. A second large family room/library with a large screen TV and leather furniture is a short distance away from the kitchen area. This home contains over 125 different windows, making Frank Lloyd Wright’s vision of bringing nature into your living environment, a reality.
Whether you want to escape from your hectic life, take advantage of the many activities in the surrounding area, or host an event, do it in the “Wright Retreat”!

About The Owner
I acquired this unique property just a few years ago and have since come to appreciate not only the beauty and uniqueness of the property but also the vision and genius of Frank Lloyd Wright. It is truly a work of art which I hope others can enjoy and appreciate as well.
The Owner purchased this house in 2008
Why The Owner chose Boiling Springs
The great thing about this property, aside from the complete privacy, peace and quite, is the close proximity to so many things (Hershey Park, the history of Gettysburg, the Civil War Museum in Harrisburg, the minor league baseball park on City Island in Harrisburg, shopping and the Amish country in Lancaster, etc.). Because of the central location, you can visit a different area each day and not have far to travel.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We LOVED the house. Very warm, inviting and unique. It was also beautifully decorated for Christmas. We had our family in the area over for a large get together on New Year's Day and there was plenty of room very everyone. The house is well equipped and appointed. We look forward to coming back soon.
