Property description

Welcome to Eagle Bend Estate near Hershey, PA.

We have a few dates available for you to stay at our home while we are not staying there this summer. Our calendar reflects the dates we have blocked off and open dates are available for guests.

It is a peaceful retreat and place of healing. Land that was once home to the Susquehannock Indians, explorers, trappers, and early settlers, this property just outside the Village of Union Deposit lives up to the unique setting and experience it provides.

Known as Eagle Bend Estate to signify the family of Bald Eagles that have nested near this unusual and unique bend in the Swatara Creek. The 'Swattie' and its tree lined banks frequently serve as a frame in capturing the intimidating and majestic view of one or more Bald Eagles flying up or down the creek. In addition, deer, waterfowl, squirrels, and various inland bird species frequent this tranquil setting.

Your stay at Eagle Bend Estate will afford you the convenience of location with privacy not found in most vacation rentals. Eagle Bend Estate is designed as a 'destination' vacation where guests can choose to take in all the recreational opportunities surrounding the property and utilize their visit to re-energize avoiding the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Guests may also choose to combine the excellent recreational offerings and tranquility of the property to complement trips to HersheyPark, Gettysburg, the AACA Antique Auto Meet, Penn National Race Track, Amish Country, or some of the many other great activities Central Pennsylvania offers.

Whatever extra activities our guests decide to add to their stay, relaxation and enjoyment is the goal at Eagle Bend Estate.

Eagle Bend Estate (main house) offers over 2,300 square feet of living space with a grand main living area containing living, dining, and custom kitchen all surrounding a beautiful floor to ceiling see-through fireplace and a covered deck with panoramic views.

From the living, dining and kitchen areas guests will be able to view wildlife and the creek through a wall of windows that are seven feet high and span the thirty-five foot length of the home. A large bathroom complements the main floor which contains a shower and tub combo.

On the second floor, guests will find spacious rooms with sleeping for eight to ten people.

The second floor bathroom is large with a double sink, linen closet, and also includes a separate shower and custom air tub.

We strive to make your experience at Eagle Bend Estate and your vacation to the Hershey area enjoyable and memorable. We will provide you with information on local attractions, restaurants, and possible some of the locals favorite spots that are off the beaten path.

In addition, Eagle Bend Estate staff provide guests with National Weather Service links (cell phone text plan necessary) to stay on top of local weather alerts in the Hershey area. No matter if you are at HersheyPark, in the theatre, or out on the water, these updates will keep you informed of any weather patterns that might help you plan alternate activities.

Manager info

About: We welcome you to our home, Eagle Bend Estate. We are excited to offer you the opportunity to experience the best of Central PA while staying at one of the more unique Guest House locations. Our property manager and caretaker will see that you are welcomed and that your stay is enjoyable.

Why Hershey:
We chose Eagle Bend as our home for it's unique location. It is within a few minutes to everything convenient and commercial, yet located in a setting that would make you think you are miles off the beaten path. You will find that Hershey, Hershey Entities, and the surrounding Central PA area has some of the most friendly people. In addition to the people, you will have the opportunity to hear stories and gain experiences that will capture your heart and create memories you will hold for a lifetime.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love our time at Eagle Bend because it has some of the best that nature, recreation, history, culture, and entertainment has to offer. The Hershey area has something for everyone. What makes Eagle Bend a unique part of the Hershey experience for a visitor is that it provides a 'destination' experience. If you love nature, outdoor, and recreational activities, you wouldn't need to do anything else except spend time at Eagle Bend. From fishing to kayaking/tubing to bird watching to nature trails to sitting and relaxing without interruption, there is an experience waiting. One of the best things we like about the home is the beautiful fireplace which is the focal point as you enter the home. With an abilty to enjoy the see-through fireplace from both the living room and the kitchen, it is a perfect amenity.
