This charming, 19th century brick townhouse (fully renovated in the Spring of 2012) 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. Two upstairs bedrooms, one with a four-poster queen bed, the other with a pair of twin beds, have attached baths that are sleek and modern with glass-enclosed showers and tile floors. All spaces are designed to provide soothing havens for rest and gathering, tastefully appointed with world art, textiles and antiques. The private backyard terrace with dining area is perfect for family entertaining, framed by lush foliage and dotted with decorative planters and twinkling lights. When you’ve had a busy day of enjoying the local attractions, return to your personal retreat and relax in the hot tub or sauna!
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.
Brant Mackley purchased this house in 2008
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.
There were six of us total and there was plenty of room. Kitchen was fantastic, with a beautiful stove and wonderful dishwasher. Lots of plates and pans - didn't have to bring a thing but food to make great dinners. The house was so clean. There were three bathrooms, all very clean. The entire house has been updated and is very relaxing to stay in. It is also very close to the Hershey Spa!
Great location. Beautiful home. Friendly owner. Overall, a terrific experience!
This place is fabulous!!! It has an older, antique feel but has all the updates features you are looking for. Brand new appliances, large showers and bathrooms and the sauna and soaking tub out back are wonderful. A nice size living room with please of seating and a table large enough in the kitchen for everyone to sit together. Comfortable sleeping for 8 and within .5 miles to the front gate of Hershey Park. And Brant was great and very easy to deal with. No more hotels for me. My future Hershey visits will be planned around the availability of this property. A great experience for the whole family. Thanks Brant
We recently spent a girls weekend in Hershey and rented both The Traveler's Post and Cozy Corner guest house next door. Both properties are absolutely beautiful! They are newly remodeled, comfortable and so convenient to all of the Hershey attractions. The owner, Brant, is also a pleasure to work with! He made the booking and check-in process so simple and was quick to respond to all of our questions. I would highly recommend The Traveler's Post and/or Cozy Corner to anyone looking for the perfect weekend getaway in Hershey. We hope to be back soon. Thank you!
This quaint duplex is close to the Hershey attractions. There are plenty of nice extras which you would not expect in a rental property (spices in the kitchen, many paper products in the kitchen and bath). Also the beds are very comfortable.
We had a few issues with finalizing the house entry details. We were not contacted with the house code until a few hours before we were to arrive, although we had tried calling a number of times during the week before our trip.
Some of the pots and pans were dirty, and there was food left in the refrigerator.
Also we didn't realize that the hot tub and sauna were in a common backyard area.
Overall, we had a nice vacation, though, and were very thankful to be close to the Hershey Lodge, where we attended a Family Life Weekend to Remember event, and to a local church, where we met with fellow Christians.
This property is absolutely beautiful. It was homecoming weekend at my school and we wanted to be somewhere convenient and comfortable. There were 4 of us total. The Traveler's Post was the perfect place to stay. Close to everything, fully equipped, extremely clean, and best of all, Brant is great! I did not have any concerns, but he was available if I needed him. I honestly have nothing bad to say. We will definitely be returning to the traveler's post for our next stay.
