York Haven House Rental Photos and Description

A Nature-lover's Paradise, Yet Centrally Located To Many Area Attractions.

Looking for a truly unique experience in beautiful south-central Pennsylvania, just 15 minutes from downtown York? Conveniently located approximately midway between Washington DC and New York City, a nature-lovers paradise awaits you at the Brewhouse Mountain Eco-Inn. Located on four acres of mixed hardwood forest in the Conewago Mountains, the Brewhouse Mountain Eco-Inn has a friendly, romantic, eccentric yet laid-back atmosphere in a relaxed, natural setting where your family or group of friends can really get away from it all. From mid-June to mid-July, our gardens are filled with over 400 varieties of daylilies; one of the largest daylily collections on the East Coast. Oaks, hemlocks, beeches, poplars, ferns, hostas, rhododendron, azaleas, raspberries, blueberries and perennial flowers abound. Your host, Jeff Lebo, has been a collector of antique and vintage brewery advertising for 35 years. Nearly every inch of wall space is filled with vintage beer cans from around the world, antique bottles, lithos, neons, porcelain signs and every imaginable type of breweriana from days gone by. The collection is the largest of its kind in the world, and has been featured in many magazines and television shows, including Playboy Magazine, the History Channel, the Travel Channel and the Home and Garden Channel.

Stroll through our grounds, curl up with a book or sip an ice-cold drink on the porch. Listen to the symphony of nature; pileated woodpeckers, hawks, songbirds, cicadas, tree frogs and owls. In the winter, warm yourself in front of the wood stove in our cozy, rustic lounge. We're just one hour north of Baltimore, 1 1/2 hours west of Philadelphia, and 3 hours southwest of New York City. We are located midway between Harrisburg and York, just one mile from Interstate 83 and 7 miles south of the Pennsylvania Turnpike (Route 76).

The 6,000 square foot inn has five bedrooms, each with a double or queen bed, and rents for $469 per night. Included in your rate is the use of our facilities: two bathrooms (one upstairs, one downstairs, each with a toilet, tub and shower), a large (16' x 50') upstairs lounge with board games, sofas and chairs, a large (18' x 36') downstairs common room with a small library, four sofas, wood stove and dining table that seats ten, and a large kitchen with a table that seats six, refrigerator, microwave, stove, oven and dishwasher. Outside we have a side porch with a glider and rocking chair, as well as a patio with a dining table that seats four. There is also an outdoor grill for your convenience. We use green, eco-friendly and locally-made products in our facility. There is plenty of free parking. Need a place for your event? Our upstairs lounge can accomodate groups of up to 25.

There are lots of things to do here! We are conveniently located just minutes from many local attractions:

We are just 12 minutes from Roundtop Mountain Resort where you'll enjoy great snowboarding and skiing in the winter. In the summer, the adventure continues, with ziplines, OGO balls, chairlift rides, bumper boats, the canopy crawl, paintball and more. Roundtop boasts the best variety of ziplines in the mid-Atlantic region.

We're also just 10 minutes from the beautiful Gifford Pinchot State Park, with miles of trails for birdwatching and hiking, and a large lake for fishing, swimming, canoeing and kayaking.

Speaking of fishing, canoeing and kayaking, we are within 10 minutes of five amazingly beautiful waterways: the Susquehanna River, Conewago Creek, Yellow Breeches Creek, Bennett Run and the Conodoguinet Creek. We have kayaks available. For the truly adventurous paddler, many other rivers and streams are nearby, including the incredible Muddy Creek Gorge, Swatara Creek, Bermudian Creek, Juniata River, Donegal Creek, Chickies Creek, Sherman Creek, Tuscarora Creek, Pequea Creek, Conestoga Creek, Mill Creek and Codorus Creek. On the Susquehanna River, just five minutes away, paddlers can explore many of the islands which were once inhabited by the Susquehanna indians including Little Stony Island, Sassafras Island, Hill Island, Poplar Island, Henry Island, Goosehorn Island, Kohr Island, Beech Island, Shelley Island and Bashore Island. The largest rookery on the Susquehanna is also nearby. Here you can often see thousands of nesting blue herons, egrets, green herons and cormorants.

Recreational boaters, waterskiers and jet-skiers will be happy to know that the marina and boat ramp at Goldsboro is just eight minutes away. We are also close to the world-famous Appalachian Trail, for those looking to get off the beaten path. Mountain bikers and cyclists will love our nearby rail-trails and scenic, back-country roads. For golfers, Valley Green Golf Course, an 18-hole public golf course, is just five minutes away. There are also several other excellent public golf courses within a 15 minute radius.

For motorsports fans, the Susquehanna Speedway dirt track is just two miles away. Susquehanna Speedway operates mostly in the summer months and depending on the wind, it can be quite loud here at Brewhouse Mountain. You may want to check their racing schedule before booking. There is also a Saturday and Sunday morning flea market and farmers market across the road from Susquehanna Speedway.

We are just 15 minutes from the city of York, which was the country's first capital. York also has good restaurants and a charming farmers market, which is open Thursdays and Saturdays. We're also just 12 minutes from Pennsylvania's capital city of Harrisburg, with wonderful nightlife, live music, a variety of great restaurants, its famous Capital rotunda and its world class Civil War Museum. Don't forget the dive bar tour of York Haven, as well as tours of local wineries.

We're just 30 minutes to Hershey and Hersheypark, 30 minutes to Carlisle with its famous auto show, 40 minutes to Lancaster County's Pennsylvania Dutch and Amish country, and 40 minutes to the Gettysburg Civil War Battlefield.

The Brewhouse Mountain Eco-Inn truly offers something for everyone. We look forward to seeing you soon!

About Jeff Lebo

Hello,

My name is Jeff Lebo. My wife Lauri and I love to travel and to meet new friends. We hope you will make Brewhouse Mountain your home away from home when you visit beautiful south-central Pennsylvania.

Jeff Lebo purchased this house in 1988

Why Jeff Lebo chose Pennsylvania

I believe south-central Pennsylvania is one of the most beautiful and welcoming places that I have been.

What makes this house unique

This is a very private place in the woods, but also so close to many attractions in the area. Harrisburg, Pennsylvania's state capital, is only 12 minutes away. York, America's first capital, is only 15 min. away. The natural beauty of the surrounding Conewago mountains is a highlight. Kayaking on some of the nearby lakes, creeks and rivers is wonderful.

A lot of fun! Clean! Unique!

  • 5 of 5

The owners did a wonderful job making this house feel like home. They were very accomodating and helpful during our stay. The house was clean, and there was ample room for all. One is never at a loss for seeing something new, no matter how long your stay will be. It is evident that this house was built out of love and passion. During our stay, we commented that it was so nice being disconnected from the 'outside' interferences (internet and cable) and allowed us all to get needed rest, and provided us with an opportunity to reconnect with the great pasttime of 'conversation.' Jeff and his wife were very kind and accomodating. We definitely recommend this house.
