Why Kristin Treadway chose East Prospect

This quaint boating community is one of the few navigable areas along the Susquehanna River. We purchased this secluded cabin because of its central location; only 35 minutes from Hershey, 20 minutes from Lancaster & York and less then an hour from Baltimore, with all the conveniences of shopping, dining and entertainment.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We came for a get-a-way from Phila!! It’s our 25th anniversary! Love the peace and tranquility. Nothing quite like getting back to the basics in life!! We rested and enjoyed the quiet in our life- did not go anywhere just vegetated. We brought our miniature dachshund along for the celebration- he enjoyed running around with no leash- no cars- no other dogs! Hope we can make it back again.

Cozy winter retreat, great spot for exploring

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful winter family vacation staying at Wanda and Tom's adorable Wrightsville cabin. We drove from Atlanta and arrived after midnight. What a treat to walk into the cabin with fires already alight in the fireplaces! It was indicative of the attention to detail and hospitality we enjoyed throughout the week. The location is secluded, on the forested banks of the lovely Canadochly Creek and a short walk to the banks of the Susquehannah. It was so scenic after a night of snow. We enjoyed doing puzzles, reading, and relaxing at the cabin and sleeping late in the comfy bed, but we spent a lot of time exploring. We enjoyed getting to know the locals at a pub and a micro-brewery nearby in Wrightsville and Columbia and taking photos of the scenic bridge over the Susquhannah. We had planned to hike the nearby Horse-Shoe Trail, which links with the Appalachian Trail, but the day was bitter cold so we opted for a warmer option. Thanks to some information Wanda and Tom had left at the cabin, we enjoyed a driving tour of Amish Country and took a buggy ride to an Amish farm. Skiing at Camelback, and day trips to Philadelphia and Gettysburg rounded out the trip. Thank you, Wanda and Tom, for a wonderful family road trip to Pennsylvania!

The perfect cabin experience!

  • 5 of 5

The seclusion you hope for when you seek out a cabin outing combined with the convenience of being located close to parks, stores and restaurants. Once you turn onto bank hill rd you leave the stress of everyday life behind. When the cabin was built it was meant to impress; from the cathedral ceiling to the massive fireplace; to the simple but beautiful lattice work of the stair railings; then Wendy and Tom took it to the next level; with a well appointed kitchen ; an elegant master bedroom and an over the top slate shower. Combine that with the fact that you can bring your dog for the fun and we could not have been more pleased.

What a cozy, relaxing cabin! Comfortable, had all the amenities we could need, and was the perfect serene getaway for us. And our two dogs were able to join us! We would love to return!

Lovely, relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Great time at the wrightsville cabin with my husband and two dogs. Cooking was a breeze with the spacious kitchen, standard sized stove and refrigerator. Loved the large screened in porch. Even on rainy days felt as if we were outside with the floor to ceiling screens. The dogs enjoyed the walks and nature trail across the street. Had long leads tied to tree so they were able to access the creek on their own. Great antique store across the river. Forget the name but it's the larger one at the end of the bridge. Would definitely stay again . Thank you, Wanda, for the tranquil stay at your cabin.

Excellent stay - beyond our hopes

  • 5 of 5

My fiance, two dogs and myself had the pleasure of staying in Wanda's beautiful cabin over Memorial Day weekend. We couldn't have been more pleased with the location, the cabin and the wonderful owner, Wanda. The cabin is secluded and with incredibly beautiful surroundings. The interior of the cabin makes you feel like you are in your own home, no detail left out. We ate breakfast in most days and used the grill on two different occasions. We really enjoyed the fire-pit and used it on two evenings.

We would highly recommend anyone that is looking for a wonderful getaway. While it is secluded, it is also very close to York and Lancaster.
