About the property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Located in the heart of the Chataqua section of Mount Gretna at the end of a cul-de-sac sits this fully furnished cottage built in 1895. Sitting on the porch will leave you feeling like you’re sitting in a tree house, with a beautiful view of the trees and the rooftops of the surrounding cottages. Step out onto the porch on a summers eve and enjoy the music from the theater which is only a few blocks away!

Inside, sunlight dances through the leaves and makes it's way through the many windows and sky lights. Curl up with a book or relax while watching television. For those who like to cook, the kitchen is fully furnished with a nice eat in kitchen. There are three bedrooms, two of which have queen beds while the other has a set of twin beds. The family room includes a twin pull out chair. The cottage is decorated simply and tastefully meant to encourage a tranquil and relaxing environment.

Mount Gretna is a great place to just sit and relax or take part in the local activities. Miniature golf, playground, ice cream at the Jigger Shop, and shows at the playhouse are all within walking distance. Hiking, roller skating, and the lake are just on the other side of town.

Check us out on Facebook for community events and memories from the cottage.

This home is exactly what you expect to find at Mt. Gretna......the theme....the style.....THE PORCH

  • 5 of 5

The home is quite beautiful....very cozy and inviting. The Pink House is tricked out with comfortable furnishing......lots of glorious natural light.....and lovely surroundings. The owners have extras included, if you wish, such as towels and sheets, a washer and dryer for your convenience...and a kitchen with all you would need...... Our bed was very comfortable, and provided a wonderful night sleep......I would be remiss if I didn't mention the my opinion, the star of the home.....where we had our coffee in the morning.....our cocktails in the evening...and where we sat for hours on end...enjoying Mt. Gretna and all it has to offer.....of course we also give high praise to the Lake...and The Jigger Shop.....If we're in Gretna, we're going to hit both of these's a no-brainer...... Thank you for allowing us to stay in you lovely was everything we were hoping for.......Barry and Jo Habalar

This property has a great location in central Mt. Gretna with parking!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented several cottages throughout Mt. Gretna for our wedding. This specific cottage was rented for my parents, sister, bother-in-law, niece and nephew (a total of 6 guests). The size and rooms were perfect for my family, my sister and brother-in-law in one room, parents in one and my niece and nephew took the room with the two twin beds. This cottage is accommodating enough with seating (two dining tables, two sofas, rocking chair, wide chair for two inside. Outside there are two separate seating areas on the large front porch, probably around 6 or so chairs).

My parents were also able to host a breakfast for all of the bridesmaids and groomsmen and their families. The kitchen is fully stocked where we were cooking or grilling nearly every night without needing to buy anything outside of food. The owners were very easy to communicate with. The playhouse is a short 2 min walk around the path from the cottage, along with the Jigger Shop. You can actually hear the concerts and plays from the playhouse while enjoying conversation (or wine) on the front porch.

The only complaint they had was the second bathroom is actually in the basement. In order to access it, you have to go outside, down the stairs and below the house. It is still a huge benefit as most homes in the area only have one bathroom. We just wish we would have known prior to booking so we could have expected it. There is no restroom on the main level of the house, so you have to use stairs, either up or down, each time. Again, this is still a huge benefit, it is just not ideal for individuals with a little difficulty getting around.

Overall, the stay was wonderful, fun and we would gladly rent this cottage again!

Authentic cottage experience

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean and quaint. We brought four children with us and there was plenty of space for everyone. There were toys and games to play with for our four year old. We spent an entire rainy day chilling at the house and the kids were perfectly content. The owner was responsive and helpful. You can spend your evenings on the porch listening to live music happening at the theatre. The cottage is walking distance from dining and activities. The community was friendly and there are numerous activities planned throughout the week. Staying in Mount Gretna is camping meets resort. It was a short drive to Hershey and all it has to offer. Highly recommend as a vacation experience for anyone.

Best Place I Have Ever Stayed

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to stay when you need a little getaway! The house was very clean and they were very professional. It is right in the center of town with a lot of things to do, especially going to the lake.. It's not very expensive and it will keep you busy for the whole day. I highly recommend this house if you are looking for somewhere to stay in Mt. Gretna.

cottage stay at Mt.GRETNA 338195

  • 3 of 5

The cottage is a perfect location for a stay at Mt. Gretna. The house needs to provide more bath towels as we had 6 adults and only 4 towels and no wash cloths . The house was not clean and food was left in both refrig. and freezer from previous tenants. The bathroom located outside the house was a bit inconvenient as it was 45 degrees last weekend! otherwise the place was fine
