  • Peaceful, spacious, relaxing, what more can I say.

    "We have stayed at numerous vacation rentals and Sylvan Retreat did not disappoint. This place is spacious, the room upstairs was wonderful for the kids to play in and the yard was marvelous. Plenty of room for all eight of us. We cancelled plans to stay home one night and grill, have a fire, and the kids caught fireflies. We played music and relaxed. The yard is truly a retreat. The kids loved the playset, I enjoyed the glider and the men loved the pool table and ping pong table in the garage. There was also a foosball game. It took me a bit to find the garage, but it is down the driveway. We took hikes on the trails and the kids and adults picked berries. I loved it that there was no TV in the living room, but in all the bedrooms. Phil had everything you need there and it was clean (which is my first priority.) No one was ready to leave and hope to be back."

  • Perfect "borrowed" home

    "We had an amazing time. The house was exactly as described, clean, perfect location, surrounded by Amish! We came here to get away from the city, and that is exactly what we did! The kids had a great time running outside straight of out bed to see if the bunnies were awake yet, and to see the cows. The house also came equipped with a basket full of cars for my son and a basket full of outdoor toys which they played with nearly every day. Edie also makes amazingly cute monster friends which we couldn't resist. We adopted 2 of them. My one and only critique is, if you are coming here with small kids, there is no bathroom on the second floor, so just make sure you bring a small potty for night time. Otherwise, they would have to go downstairs at night and all the way to the other side of the house. But this is a very small and easily fixed problem. Thank you Edie for a great vacation, we will be coming back for sure!"

  • We had a FABULOUS time, and Ruth is a Doll!!!

    "My two children and I were coming into Hershey for just one night and Ruth graciously allowed us to rent her apartment. She greeted us in the driveway with a big hug ( it was like we were family) and took us in to show us the lovely apartment. She has it decorated so quaint. We met her sweet doggy and she was sad that our puppy couldn't make it, do the fact that we didn't have room for him with all of our stuff!!! We asked her for a recommendation for dinner and it was FANTASTIC. When we got home the apartment was all cozy and we had a great sleep in our comfy down pillow and down comforter bed. It was like we were royalty. We just had a great time and can't wait to come back for a girls spa weekend. Thank you Ruth you are truly a gem!!!"

  • PERFECT

    "My husband and I frequent Lancaster often and love to try new places to stay. The Carriage House was on the top of our list of near perfect places. The decor was amazing. It was comfortable, relaxing and just what we were looking for. We cannot wait to visit again."
