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.

All spaces are designed to provide soothing havens for rest and gathering, tastefully appointed with world art, textiles and antiques.

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.
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.
