Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a pleasant stay. Clean and comfortable apartment. Kate, Dave and Bella doggy were helpful and friendly. Our two small children and doggy felt at home. We were only in town for two days, but there is so much more to come back for and check out in the surrounding areas. We found a terrific playground nearby by in Mt. Gretna too. Thank you again!

In The Woods = Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We are 2 adults with 2 dogs who required housing while visiting the Mt. Gretna area.

The bedrooms, small living/dining area, kitchenette, full bath were ideal for us.

Conveniently located to restaurants as stove/oven is not available.

The microwave and refrigerator were adequate for our needs.

Scenic views and many places to visit, hike, run, & bike surround the location.

We will definitely return when we are in the area in the future.

Comfortable,Well kept, Clean and Great location!

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a beautiful setting and convienient to Hershey, Lancaster and Gettysburg not to mention all the quaint towns in between. It's the perfect place to come back to after a day of outings and exploring. The owners were very kind and available if you needed anything. There is a nice back porch to relax on that overlooks a wooded area with comfy chairs. We would definitely stay there again.

Well kept, pleasant, convenient, and kind owners

  • 5 of 5

If you are visiting Mt. Gretna or the surrounding area I highly recommend this property. It is clean, comfortable, well-maintained, and very convenient if you are attending events in Mt. Gretna and the surrounding area (Lebanon, etc.) The owners are kind and pleasant. The bed in the large bedroom was very comfortable and the wifi is quick and consistent, as is the cable TV. Trail access is quick and easy. We've stayed at a couple of other rentals in the Mt. Gretna area and this was by far the best one.

Our girls get away weekend couldn't have been better. Our stay at Into the Woods included trips to the lake, late night bike rides via the rails to trails to the Hideaway, and relaxing drinking coffee on the patio. The location along the trail is perfect. Kate and a Dave are lovely hosts.

Best location ever!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. The apartment was located between Hershey and Lancaster and that was perfect. The owners were great and very hospitable. If we ever visit the area again I would stay no where else.
