Harrisburg Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-7)
Located near Mechanicsburg and Camp Hill (suburbs of Harrisburg), Pennsylvania, the Yellow Breeches Cottage is a cozy vacation home sitting directly on the banks of the Yellow Breeches Creek, a nationally renowned location for fishing and popular for kayaking and canoeing. Its proximity to US Route 15 and Interstate 83 make it only a two hour drive outside of the District of Columbia area and Baltimore, 30 minutes to Hershey (Chocolatetown, USA and home to HersheyPark), 15 minutes to center city Harrisburg (the Capitol of PA) and 40 minutes to Gettysburg with its infamous Battlefield and outlets.
A stay in the Yellow Breeches Cottage offers year round activities. In the winter, take a 15 minute drive to Roundtop Mountain Resort (formerly Ski Roundtop) and spend the day on skis, snowboards or go tubing, day or night. Or you can drive 20-30 minutes to Hershey, PA and visit Chocolate World, Hershey Park or go shopping at the Outlets of Hershey.
Spring, Summer and Fall are wonderful times to stay at Yellow Breeches Cottage. The tranquil, scenic Yellow Breeches Creek is a perfect spot for kayaking, canoeing and tubing. Imagine having a cup of coffee on the deck and walking a few steps to the creek to cast your fishing rod while sitting on the private dock.
If you like to golf, you can almost walk to Liberty Forge, home of an 18 hole golf course as well as a miniature golf course and restaurant.
There is a full kitchen, including dishwasher as well as a separate laundry room with new washer & dryer. Each bedroom has a full size bed with comfy pillow top mattresses. The living room has a comfy Crate & Barrel sofa which converts to a queen size bed and a large 42' flat screen tv. Verizon FIOS Wifi allows you to work on your laptop!
There is a large collection of dvds as well as games for entertainment.
So if you are in Central PA for business or pleasure, why stay in a hotel when you can have the amenities of home!

Both Clark and Lisa have dogs, Labs who love the creek, and are glad to be able to accomodate guests who enjoy or need to bring along their dog family members.
Clark is an avid kayaker on the creek and likes to hunt for antiques. He is the father of 2 college age children and a Yellow Lab. Clark likes to invest in local real estate.
Lisa is married to Clark's younger brother, Kent, yes as in Superman, but no, their mom did not name them on purpose! Lisa is an avid skier and busy mom to 2 girls, ages 10 and 11, and she and Kent like to spend time relaxing on the Yellow Breeches Creek, listening to the sounds of nature. Kent likes to golf and likes the driving range at Liberty Forge golf nearby. They have 2 labs, 1 Chocolate and 1 Yellow who enjoy the creek too!
Lisa Frese purchased this cottage in 2010
Why Lisa Frese chose Harrisburg
Lisa is a former REALTOR with C-21 Realty Services in Camp Hill and found the property and together she and Clark have transformed it into a 'home away from home' for out of town visitors to Central PA! Both Clark and Lisa live across the creek in a development on a hill and love the location since it is close to their homes for managing purposes but more importantly can attest to the beauty and serenity of the Yellow Breeches Creek. It's tucked away but not too far and local amenities such as restaurants, golf, movie theatre, skiing, shopping and more add to the appeal.
What makes this cottage unique
There are most likely no other cottages for rent in the Central PA area which are on the water in a setting that is both serene yet close to major amenities.
The central location to many communities in the Greater Harrisburg area such as Mechanicsburg, Camp Hill, Hershey, Carlisle, Dillsburg and the Capitol City of Harrisburg make the Yellow Breeches Cottage appealing to guests visiting family from other cities and states.
