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 Clark Frese
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.
Clark Frese purchased this Cottage in 2010
Why Clark Frese chose Upper Allen
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.

Delivers what it promises, good value, nice place, kind responsive owners.
Very largely good, with only a few small negatives. Kitchen sink had almost no water pressure and maybe no hot water. Didn't leave it on long enough to find out. Clean, good water pressure in bath. Bed in one room very comfy. Bed in the other was less so -- very hard. Well equipped kitchen, would definitely stay again.
Excellent place to stay
This is our third time in Yellow Breeches and we have to say it is a very nice place to spend a few days. The manager is wonderful and they treat us as family, not as customers.
We love our repeat customers and hope you continue to use the cottage as your second home as you reconnect with your own family in the area. Come again soon!
Our family stayed at the cottage so we could be together while in the area for a family wedding. So much better than a hotel. The stream behind the cottage adds to it's beauty. Thank you.
So glad you chose the cottage for an important family event. I hope you enjoyed caching up with
other wedding guests in privacy and spaciousness that our location offers.

Great cottage I'm serene location. Clean and nicely appointed.
The Yellow Breeches Cottage is conveniently located within 5 minutes of Route 15 and Interstate 83 and approximately 10 minutes to shopping malls and many restaurants. It serves as a nice 'home away from home' base for visitors to the Central PA area whether the visit is with family, friends, day trip to Hershey, Gettysburg, Carlisle, Harrisburg, York. Why stay in a hotel when you can have the amenities of home on a beautiful creekside setting? Plus dogs are welcome too!
