About the property

3 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom, Newly renovated House in Beautiful Lancaster County

9/10/2017 UPDATE The Nest is currently providing a need for a family displaced from their home due to the recent storms that ravaged our nation. We are currently accepting reservation requests for summer 2018.

We hope to see you then! This newly remodeled Family Home will surprise you with it’s cleanliness, comfort and luxury. Three main suites with private baths will allow you personal space while the common areas will accommodate and encourage fellowship and relaxation. Not that you are interested in preparing meals (we are in Lancaster County, for goodness sake, home to some of the best eats ever!) but the kitchen is stocked and has an open dining area with seating for 10 at the main dining table. Guests will be able to enjoy two entertainment rooms, and a large private deck to the back of the home with a natural gas grill.

Beautiful Home!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for its proximity to Hershey Park. We had 12 people, adults and children, with us and we had so much space. This house has been beautifully done and is well taken care of. We would stay here again! The owners were very easy to contact and replied with in 24 hours. Thank you for allowing us to stay at Nest on the Run!

Perfect home for Spooky Nook weekends!

  • 5 of 5

The Nest on the Run was the perfect place for our three families to stay while in town for a field hockey tournament at Spooky Nook. With less than a ten minute drive, we were able to go back and forth and enjoy the comforts of the beautiful house in between games.

The home is immaculate, well furnished and perfect for a mixed group of people. With private baths in each bedroom, families were able to have some privacy, yet the open kitchen/dining area provided enough space for us to all be together. We used the front entertainment room as another bedroom which worked out just fine. The teenaged girls thought the bunk room with private bath was the greatest thing since sliced bread-- they had their own little apartment.

We will definetly be back next year!

Perfect home, centrally located

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay for three families of four during Christmas break. We've rented many houses for vacations and this was by far the nicest. Impeccably clean, tons of amenities, very homey. We spent a day in Hershey Park (20 min away) and a day in Amish country (30 min away). Enjoyed yummy pizza at Two Cousins Pizza in Mount Joy. The owners had great communication with us. I would highly recommend this property A++++
