Visit Chocolate World and Hersheypark

Visit the Zoo

ZooAmerica is an 11-acre zoo in Hershey. You can go to the zoo year round, and discover many interesting things about their over 200 animals. Those who visit Hersheypark can visit ZooAmerica for free if they go on the same day. However, others may choose to go on a separate day since Hersheypark can take a full day to explore. If you go on another day, there is a nominal charge that is very worthwhile. The walk through zoo has tree-lined paths, and it a pleasant place to spend a few hours learning about animals.

Go to a Concert or Show

It is located in a nice, quiet, residential community (about 15 minutes to the park) and it outfitted with everything you would need and more. The kitchen is stocked with everything you need to prepare a meal at home and the gas grill was great. The owners were very gracious and welcoming. The pool was beyond beautiful and the backyard was inviting. Our kids made great use of the pool and we spent the majority of our time outside relaxing. Overall, this home was perfect for a large family and we will definitely stay there again on our next trip to Hershey.

The property is just BEAUTIFUL and the accommodations PERFECT. Beautiful views of the river and mountains from the deck, sun porch, living room, dining room and bedrooms. Always felt like we were in a magical setting. The bedrooms on the main floor and the suite on the second floor worked perfectly and were very comfortable. The grounds are beautifully maintained, with gorgeous old trees providing shade on the deck and near the river. Our 7 month old granddaughter does not like her baths or water, but she loved the wooden double swing hooked between two large trees near the river, and so did I. She loved swinging in it and watching everyone in the water. Kayaks were provided with the rental, and everyone used them. Even took the 2 and 4 year old grandchildren out for a very calming, leisurely ride. The river was low and very calm. The little ones splashed around each day and the adults went out further or ventured out in the kayaks to the islands nearby. Each morning we were greeted by the beautiful Egrets, and in the evening, the two grandchildren would go down to the docks with my son-in-law and a flashlight to see the frogs and snappers. A few nights we sat around the fire pit near the river and roasted marshmallows. What a wonderful experience and fun time for all of us. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect setting. We would definitely return to this magical place. The owners were very nice and always available for any questions. We really needed nothing. Everything we could want was within our reach. What more could anyone ask for???? A 5+ star vacation.

The beds were sooo comfortable and the house had everything we needed . The guys raved about the grill. We would highly recommend this home to anyone wanting their own private oasis. We left feeling very relaxed !! Thank you David and Janice for hosting us.
