About Frank and Ann Anthony

Ann and I have raised our children in this house they are all grown and we since downsized. My goal is to hand this home down to my children.

Why Frank and Ann Anthony chose Lebanon

Because we are centrally located 12 miles, 20 minutes from Hershey Pennsylvania and Dutch Country. But not only that we are only 90 minutes from Philadelphia and only 45 minutes from Valley Forge. Gettysburg is about a hour away in the other direction. So as you can see there are alot of things a family can do.

What makes this house unique

Centrally located between Hershey Pennsylvania and Lancaster Pennsylvania Dutch Country

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Our family reunion at the Anthony's beautiful home in Lebanon was wonderful. The bedrooms were comfortable and provided just the room we needed for our group of 8 adults and 9 children (some of whom slept in pack n plays or floor beds). My three suggestions for the Anthony's would be that 1) it would have been nice if the house had been stocked with toilet paper, dish soap, dishwasher soap, bath soap and trash bags. 2) they have an awful lot of large furniture pieces in the dining room and living room that make the house living spaces feel crowded. and 3) they need to trim their bushes at the end of the driveway - it is very difficult to see when you are pulling out on to a pretty busy road.

Clean, spacious & convenient to Hershey Park.

  • 5 of 5

The house was very accommodating. We were 5 adults with 5 children. Plenty of bedrooms & bathrooms. Kitchen is very functional. Wifi was great, loved the smart tv because we could access our Vudu account for kids movies. Easy drive to Hershey park and very close to grocery store. I would recommend this rental.

Relaxing Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. The house is spacious and lovely. The sleeping accommodations were fine. There was comfortable room for everyone. We were surprised that the house was located on a main street but it was relatively quiet. The kitchen was well appointed. We looked for a vacuum or broom to clean up indoors but could not locate one. Bathrooms need to be updated; the master bath toilet had a leak. Outdoors need some grooming. The glass table top in the living room needs to be secured; we were worried that it would tip over. The AC worked well in the hot weather. We were a little further from Hershey than we had anticipated. We are only making suggestions for some of these small things to make the stay even better.

A beautiful home in an idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

The house, referred to as the farmhouse, is spacious. All rooms are nicely appointed. The huge kitchen has been updated with many modern appliances. The bedrooms are large and comfortable. It has all the amenities one thinks of on vacation. In summary, we had 12 people in residence at the home and we were never in each other's way. The many bathrooms helped tremendously and the instant hot water was great. We had a great time and we would encourage others to stay here. It is very close to Hershey Park which we also enjoyed.

Great size and character with some minor issues.

  • 3 of 5

It was difficult for us to find a home in the area that could fit our larger group. The configuration of the home worked perfectly for this larger group. It has great character in being an older home. As mentioned the bathrooms are shared, except for the one room mentioned. The attic room is quite hot in the summer, with fans provided. Keep that in mind, depending on your group configuration.

The issues come up with a couple of items. Giving the benefit of the doubt, but communication was sparse with owners. Had a couple of questions leading up to our stay and did not get timely responses (had to ask several times over days or weeks). Did not get check in instructions until the day of, after following up myself. Which I believe can be automated via HomeAway but no information was included.

With the home itself, there was garbage (assuming from previous tenants) in the house, back patio, etc that we had to put in bins that were full. Sheets in several rooms had clearly not been washed.Towels were musty and either had not been washed or not used for some time. Which led to us having to do quite a bit of laundry for the first days.

The good thing is that all items correctable, and again may have just been due to other circumstances.

Owner's Response: We have a cleaning company clean the entire property from top to bottom . The house is 4200 square feet and all the sheets and towels are washed after ever guess. Our home accommodates 12 people easy but we noticed that more then 30 people were staying there.
