Hershey farmhouse description

The millstream farmhouse estate, was designed by Thomas Jefferson, and built starting in 1803 by John and Anna Bachman, is comprised of 12 lavishly landscaped acres, open to your exploration and enjoyment. The millstream farmhouse allows you to take a step back in time or simply just steal some time away to enjoy some peace and create memories with family. As you begin your stay at the Millstream farm house, you will quickly realize why this home has catered to up to 26 weddings a year and hundreds of private vacations for countless families seeking the perfect spot to create and share lifelong memories.
¬
The Millstream farmhouse is bordered by The ‘Bachman Run’ creek, which runs the entire length of the property. The creek has 2 waterfalls to enjoy the calming sounds of water while sitting on the bridge or simply taking a nap by the creek. You will not be able to help yourself by getting swept into the timely character and history all around you during your stay.

Memories to be made for young and old, the Millstream farmhouse is just minutes from Mount Gretna, the playhouse, the Jigger shop, and all the mountain getaway has to offer. And venture a few miles down the road to the historic town of Hershey. Where you can get your fill of any sweet chocolate or candy your heart desires. Hershey also offers HersheyPark from spring to fall, as well as the Hershey Zoo, the Hershey Story Museum, Hershey’s Chocolate world, and so much more.

Don’t forget to visit the elegant Hershey Theater for a performance or venture to the Hershey Giant center for all of the top headlining artists of today and yesterday. All here for your enjoyment.

The farmhouse is only minutes from the world famous ‘Pennsylvania Renaissance Fair’ and only a short drive to explore the traditional Amish areas of Lancaster county.

The home is comprised of 5 bedrooms – easily sleeping up to 12 or more to entertain your family for years.

The home offers a formal dining area that can accommodate up to 20+ people, as you may have your own parties in the midst of an early 1800’s formal dining area. There is no wonder why this amazing property also served as a successful Bed and Breakfast hosting many who have enjoyed all the Millstream Farmhouse has to offer you.

The downstairs is calling out from the days of old with it’s own ‘pub’ where all your guests will mingle by one of the 2 original working fireplaces. Enjoy the history speckled throughout the house from the original kitchen fireplace where meals were prepared – now transformed to your own cooking paradise with dual ovens offering an opportunity to cook for a large function and to be able to gaze out the window at the turn of the 1800’s millhouse – exposing it’s beauty to you.

From the timely ‘kids forts’ in the woods, still standing to be enjoyed, to the bridge over the stream where you can gaze and spy upon heron, hawks, trout, rabbits, deer and all mother nature has to offer, The millstream farm house is an amazing property you and your family will want to come to for years to come. Once you stay here, you become a part of this amazing property’s history. You will never be the same.

              Owner info

              About the owner: I grew up in the area, and always wanted to own an older farm estate with character. When I first heard of the story behind this house, I was sold...and you will be too.

              Why the Owner Chose Hershey:
              This property was built in 1813, and the mill house on the property was built in 1803 (started at the turn of that century). The history & peace will overwhelm you. It's an amazing property with an amazing stream, bridge, lands, and more...not enough room here to share.

              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
              Character - Thomas Jefferson designed the home, and it has many features of his home in Monticello, VA. Timeless & unique...one of a kind.
