Mechanicsburg house description

Hershey, Gettysburg, and the Dutch Country at your fingertips, yet you'll enter your own private retreat in this comfortable home on a large corner lot with majestic oak, maple and dogwood trees in a peaceful neighborhood. The star attraction is the large back yard with in-ground pool with slide and fountains, screened gazebo with dining table, ceiling fans, and lighting, and convenient pool house with outdoor kitchen and bath. The pool opens April 1, and the water should be comfortable for swimming within a few weeks. Until then, enjoy the relaxing sound of the fountains as you lounge by the pool. The 5 bedroom home features a fully equipped kitchen with breakfast nook and top-of-the-line GE Profile stainless steel appliances, including convection double oven, dishwasher, convection microwave, refrigerator and trash compactor. Relax in the TV room with Pioneer Elite big screen TV and sound system, or play air hockey with the kids. The fireplaces are decorative, not operational.


Your Hosts: We take pride in providing our guests with a sparkling clean home that has been well cared for, and one that is furnished with many conveniences. You will find the house and grounds well maintained. We live in the area and will respond promptly to any need. We truly enjoy helping to make your vacation in central Pennsylvania a very special one to remember.
David and Janice Waltz

                                  The village of Mechanicsburg is 30 minutes from the Gettysburg battlefield and visitor center, less than 30 minutes from Hershey Park, 45 minutes from Lancaster County's Amish Country. These are all in different directions, so we are very centrally located. There is also a Civil War museum in Harrisburg, just across the river. Mechanicsburg got its name because that's where all the covered wagons stopped to be repaired and worked on after they crossed the Susquehanna River heading west. It has the distinction of being the point of northernmost penetration of the Confederate Army in the Civil War. Other area attractions include Indian Echo Caverns, Lake Tobias Wildlife Park (fabulous for children!), Dutch Wonderland, IMAX theater and Harsco Science Center, and outstanding outlet shopping in Lancaster and Hershey. Enjoy the Appalachian Trail and other great wilderness hiking/biking trails, fishing, kayaking and tubing on the Susquehanna River and Yellow Breeches Creek minutes away.
