Hershey cottage description

As the story goes, this cottage was once a distillery that crafted rye rum and corn whiskey for sale in Philadelphia. Located within a beautiful setting with natural and historical wonders to explore, we are a small family farm raising sheep, goats, alpacas, chickens...and cats. A rustic experience awaits!

- Relax on the front porch, enjoy your favorite beverage or book and listen to the sounds of the Conewago Creek.
- Help with barn chores. Or just view the animals grazing from your perch on the front porch.
- Receive a tour of this Historic Mill and property.
- Take a leisurely stroll through the woods & wetlands trail on the property.
-Walk or ride your bike from the Mill to Mt. Gretna (12 miles) on the Conewago Rail Trail located right across the creek. While there, visit the regionally famous 'Jigger Shop' for some ice cream (open seasonally), swim at the lake, attend the annual art festival in August.
-Great central location for sight seeing & history inspired tours. Guests have taken trips to Gettysburg, HersheyPark, Lancaster, Philadelphia, Washington DC, New York City.
-We are happy to offer suggestions of things to do. Pioneer Tunnel Coal Mine tour/steam train ride & a visit to nearby Centralia is one of those special unusual side trips that we love (approx 1hr 30 mins away) http://www.pioneertunnel.com/home.shtml
