Quaint home for a quick get away!
We loved our time in the house. It was quaint and perfect for the three of us. The porch was lovely and where we spent our "cocktail hour" each night and coffee in the morning. The house was well supplied, the only thing we really missed was the kitchen garbage. The rooms were fine and comfortable. We really enjoyed the tabernacle environment and the apparent closeness of the community. We spent Saturday at the Hershey spa (highly recommend it) so wish we had another day or so to see some more of the local sites. Had dinner at the Hideaway on Friday and breakfast and the Porch and Pantry. Missed the Jigger shop, so we will have to return.
We had a great time in this quaint Mt Gretna Home
We found the house perfect for our needs and number of people staying. It was well stocked..such a cute house. Loved the comfort of the front porch. Parking was a definite plus. Although we didnt need to contact owners they made themselves very available to us. We would definitely go back
It was nice. no headaches. I don't mind renting it again.
Wonderful getaway home!
Beautiful home, lovely family that owns it, super enjoyable stay!
Charming little town and house
This is a super cute little house! It's was comfy and clean. It is little, built before standards for construction for sure but it was easily able to accomodate our big family for the weekend. So that didn't bother us. The kitchen is very nicely redone, and the home had several touches reminisce of the time period back when it was truly lived in. The town is small on a similar scale- the roads are but large sidewalks! Most homes are tucked together very closely and have front porches and Tiffany lamps and it is very charming and beautiful tucked away in the woods in an almost unbelievable way. The heat is electric baseboard and the main floor unit needs repair fyi. Also, could use a new fry pan and the bedroom with the trundles could also use some shades since the street lamp shines quite brightly in there. John and Jacy were helpful and gave us advice on navigating with our big suburban and trailer! Thank you for a nice stay!
Clean, comfortable, & fun!
We stayed here for three nights for the Hershey Car show. The house is well appointed with lots of room to relax. The upstairs bathroom is updated as is the kitchen. Time and effort went into decorating this cottage with antique touches (I especially liked the old games on the walls upstairs) but with comfortable chairs in the living room. After being away all day it was nice to come home to. There is a regular coffee maker in the kitchen as well as a K-cup so you can bring either kind of coffee. We cooked breakfast here and had everything we needed to prepare it. There were plenty of sheets and towels for bed and bath. I'd love to stay again.
