Mechanicsburg Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6)

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.

The Yellow Breeches Creek is home to many waterfowl including ducks and geese which often float down the creek and graze nearby. You may see an Egret who likes to hang out on the banks to fish! Also, there are often white tailed deer seen foraging in the front and side yards of the cottage and walking along the wooded banks of the creek.

For your furry family members, there is a fenced in side yard with a shade tree so they can romp and play safely. If they are water loving dogs, they will love to swim and find rocks in the creek. And located just less than 1 miles away is a dog park and walking trails at Lower Allen Park.

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 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 as well as a propane gas fireplace. Verizon FIOS Wifi allows you to work on your laptop!

There is a large collection of dvds as well as games for entertainment and books for those lazy days.

So if you are in Central PA for business or pleasure, why stay in a hotel when you can have the amenities of home!

About Tracey Beinhaur

The Yellow Breeches Cottage is owned by Clark Frese and managed by Tracey Beinhaur. Both Clark and Tracey have dogs, 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.

He lives across the creek in a development on a hill and loves the location since it is close to home for managing purposes.

Tracey lives downstream along the creek, too. She is familiar with its charm and enjoys the nature and wildlife of being a "creeker". She is mother to one college age daughter, and owner of a rescue dog named Billy who cannot stay out of the creek no matter the season. She is an avid skier and active in Ski Roundtop activities. Tracey provides both the housekeeping and groundskeeping to the Cottage.

Tracey Beinhaur purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Tracey Beinhaur chose Pennsylvania

Although the cottage is tucked away, its not too far from local amenities such as restaurants, golf, movie theatre, skiing, shopping and more.

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 cottage's charm is its farm house sink and hand hewn wood floors.

The cottage has a central location to many communities in the Greater Harrisburg area such as Mechanicsburg, Camp Hill, Hershey, Carlisle, Dillsburg, New Cumberland, Shiremanstown and Boiling Springs. The Yellow Breeches Cottage is appealing to guests from other cities and states because it is centrally located to highways that intersect in the Central PA area; I81, I83, Route 15, and the PA turnpike.

BEAUTIFUL COTTAGE!! The pictures do not do it justice!! Yellow breeches cottage is a GREAT place to go to escape the city. You can take scenic ride by Yellow Breeches Creek and look at all the beautiful homes, it is not a far drive from Harrisburg and Hershey,and is a very nice to place to hide away for a while. Very spacious fenced in yard for our dog Lily and a beautiful sitting area right next to the creek in the backyard. The cottage was very clean and well mantained for being in the middle of winter and was so easy to find. Great place to stay if you have to go to Harrisburg for work and do not want to stay in the city and VERY affordable. I would always recommend this place to anyone who would want to stay in the area and would deffinently be returning myself!!!!!

Adorable, comfortable cottage

Our family enjoyed staying in this creekside cottage. The setting was very peaceful. The house was extremely clean and included all necessary amenities. It is close to everything, yet tucked away in a tranquil setting. We can't wait to return!

Cozy, Comfy Cottage that is pet and family friendly !

  • 5 of 5

We were evacuated due to Hurricane Irene and were lucky enough to find the Yellow Breeches Cottage.

The Cottage was very comfortable for our family which includes two teenage boys and a medium size dog. The fenced in dog yard and the flat screen TV and WiFi kept all content. The close distance to Hershey Park and Gettysburg made family adventures possible. Enjoyed sitting on the dock watching the creek flow by, unfortunately we didn't bring kayaks but will next time. The cottage has a full kitchen and a washer/dryer.

We enjoyed our stay and all of us recommend this cottage.

Why stay in a hotel when you can have the amenities of home on a beautiful creekside setting? Plus dogs are welcome too!
