This is a wonderful area for walking in the quiet solitude & lush green surroundings.

THAT'S HOW CLOSE WE ARE!

At the end of the day, relax in your family gathering room. Chill out and enjoy our large cable TV or DVD player. If there is a chill in the air, enjoy the warmth of the beautiful brick fireplace while playing board games with the family. Or you may choose to sit around the fire outside, at the firepit.

About Ms. Ruth Carreno

Hello and I sure do hope you will join me in this lovely little village; as I call it 'spittin distance' to the fun and excitement of Hershey. Me?? a retired, die-hard customer service specialist. Restaurants, business dining, catering, you name it. I was side-lined a couple of years back by (2) major back surgeries, so I opened the apartment to folks wantin' to have a great time in our neck of the woods. Not only will you enjoy all that this area has to offer on a vacation, but, 'lucky you and the kidlet, will meet and play (and play, and play) with the rescue puppies. By the way, you like horses, we got a bunch of 'em. Just waitin for the kidlets to feed 'em carrots and apples, so bring the camera and you will remember forever the days your kidlets learned about horses; FreighTrain Willie, Lucky, Buddy and all the rest of 'em.

I sure hope you will join me for the 'best-rest' time of your life in the second Sweetest Place in Hershey. See you soon, and thanks for stopping.

Ms. Ruth Carreno purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Ms. Ruth Carreno chose Pennsylvania Dutch Country

Didn't plan on doin this so soon, however, when I had two ,major back surgeries, couldn't work, I thought about it for a long while. And, when I had some folks come and stay at the apartment at the beginning, met them, found out how nice they were, and how much fun we had sitting out front at the fire pit and glider, I jumped in. It's been a great adventure.

What makes this apartment unique

The absolute quiet surroundings, minus the doggie welcoming howl, of course.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Ruth, I will give stubby a kiss for you. He is a very special dog. You were very nice and friendly to all of us. Our stay down there was wonderful. We hope to see you again soon. And if we are ever in that area, we would love to come back. Thanks so much for letting us stay. You are a wonderful person..

We had a FABULOUS time, and Ruth is a Doll!!!

  • 5 of 5

My two children and I were coming into Hershey for just one night and Ruth graciously allowed us to rent her apartment. She greeted us in the driveway with a big hug ( it was like we were family) and took us in to show us the lovely apartment. She has it decorated so quaint. We met her sweet doggy and she was sad that our puppy couldn't make it, do the fact that we didn't have room for him with all of our stuff!!! We asked her for a recommendation for dinner and it was FANTASTIC. When we got home the apartment was all cozy and we had a great sleep in our comfy down pillow and down comforter bed. It was like we were royalty. We just had a great time and can't wait to come back for a girls spa weekend. Thank you Ruth you are truly a gem!!!

Greatest escape ever :)

  • 5 of 5

My three sons and I recently stayed with Ruth and we absolutely loved the place!!! It was peaceful, quiet, clean.. We don't a single bad thing to say about it. We got stuck in some holiday traffic, and our trip down ended up turning into an 11 hour ordeal. We were due to arrive around 5 and didn't get there until 10 pm. We were so nervous to bother Ruth at that time- she met us in the driveway with hugs and smiles and made us feel like family returning home as opposed to strangers coming into her home. She gave us a tour of the place and stayed up talking with us for a bit while we got settled. She is an amazing host and I am so happy to have found this place! We ended up having to leave a day early due to some family problem back north- and I received an email from her saying I was owed a free night.. No one does that!! She is the kindest, most hospitable person- her house is beautiful, and I absolutely can not wait to return. She's less than 10 minutes from all of the attractions of Hershey- and a short ride to other Pa attractions- Amish country, Indian caverns, lake Tobias..

Anyone considering renting here should absolutely take advantage of this gem!!! I know I'll be back!!!

My family and I, a 3 1/2 year old boy, 10 month old boy, my husband and two grandmas, stayed at Ruth's place for the weekend while we visited Hershey park. Ruth was so nice and made the stay so pleasant for all of us. She had toys there for my son, and EVERYTHING else that we needed to have a good stay and good time. I want to go back to Hershey just to stay at Ruth's Suitest Playce for a longer period of time! Beds were so comfy and everything was PERFECTLY homey.

Thank you Ruth!!

Great Stay!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I (and our dog Mylie) really enjoyed our stay at the "Suitest Playce" ! Ruth was so sweet and kind, even recommending a great place for a delicious dinner. The apartment was very comfortable and cozy, with everything we needed. It is also unbelievably close to all the Hershey attractions. We would definitely recommend this place and look forward to our next stay. Thank you Ruth for taking such good care of Mylie! Hope to see you next year! C.S.

Ruth is such a sweet lady and we had a wonderful stay. We were there for the Joyce Meyer Conference at Giant Center and we were so close to the venue. The apartment was cozy and quaint. The bed were very comfortable and when I go back next year I plan to stay there again. Thank you Ruth....Ann and Connie
