Property description

Nestled among the whispering trees in the 20th century Chautauqua retreat called, Mount Gretna, awaits your perfect vacation getaway! Come and refresh your body, mind, and soul while relaxing on one of the largest decks in Mount Gretna. Relax with family and friends over a late night evening meal as the last of the sun's rays shimmer through the trees or rise with the sun and take an invigorating walk on the many mountain trails that surround Mount Gretna.

Mount Gretna was discovered in the late 1800's as a great place to spend a summer day. Today, Mount Gretna has become a place to escape the stress of modern life. It is a place known for a first rate playhouse, a juried art show, resident artisans, and an unhurried life.

This home, described by some, as the 'best' in Mount Gretna captures the historic charm of the community, yet is fully modernized and furnished with two gas fireplaces, a bar, large deck, and central air. Our home has 4 bedrooms. The first floor master has a queen bed and private bathroom, with a tub/shower unit. There are three bedrooms on the second floor: 1 with a queen bed, another with 2 twin beds, and the third one with one twin bed. There is also a loft overlooking the library with a queen sleeper sofa. The second floor bathroom is equipped with a shower.

Enjoy a book from our library, or bring your own. Watch a movie or your favorite sports team on one of the 5 televisions within the home...or simply relax on the deck with Winston, our resident butler tortoise, and enjoy nature's peace and tranquility. From its location on a private cul-de-sac, you are only steps away from The famous Jigger Shop and Playhouse, and the town park. With the quiet streets through Mount Gretna, you and your children can easily and safely walk or bike throughout the historic town.

Spend a day on the sand 'Beach' at the beautiful Mount Gretna Lake and Beach complete with canoes, a dock with swings, a water slide, and kayaks.
