  • Beautiful Amish home

    "The house is exactly as depicted in the pictures. We had a wonderful time with our dog in the big back yard and on the trails. It was a great place to stay while visiting Amish country! We will be back!"

  • Great Cabin!!

    "My girlfriend and I had a great time at this cabin over the 3-day weekend. This is a perfect place to stay if you just want a relaxing weekend. I was actually going to go snowboarding one day, but was so comfortable at the cabin I decided to stay. The pictures don't do the place justice--clean and cozy. Not mentioned anywhere from where I could see in the description is the fact that they have a Blu-ray player and a smart TV-- which means you can watch Netflix and other stuff right on the TV without messing around. Great spice rack made it nice to stay in and cook. Fireplace was great-- we brought some wood and replaced the stuff we used. There is a market very close by if you forget anything. Very welcoming and I would especially recommend it for any couple looking to get away and spend some time with each other. No problems getting in or out, some of the roads are hard to see, but follow the directions and slow down when you're close and you won't have any problems. At least from our experience, we had no problem with the road--even with the snow. I have a 4wd Subaru Sedan and had no problems, although helpful I never felt like the 4wd was absolutely necessary (it all depends on conditions though). Definitely interested in coming back!"

  • Peaceful Relaxation

    "If you want a peaceful getaway, this is the place. While we were staying here, a fisherman asked us if he could fish from our dock, and told us we were living in paradise. If you like quiet country living, this is the place. The rear of the cottage is situated on the bank of the Yellow Breeches Creek and the front looks out upon a green meadow and a quiet country lane. The setting is totally peaceful. You can have your morning coffee on the little dock, sitting in the backyard swing or lounging on the deck--take your pick. The kitchen and living room are comfortable and bright, there's a nice flat screen TV, and even a pool table. The master bedroom and bath are of a good size. The other bedrooms are small but comfortable. We would stay here again. Not fancy, but very comfy."

  • Look no further!

    "This house is fantastic! Super close to lots of things to do in Hershey, as well as some excellent restaurants. We just stayed here last week with our 3 kids, ages 16, 13, and 10. The 3rd floor loft area was a great getaway for them. It's a little more geared toward younger kids up there, but my kids didn't mind that at all. You are maybe a half block from the Hershey museum, a great place to start your trip to learn about all things Hershey. We drove to HersheyPark, simply because temps were forecasted to be in the 90's and it's close to a mile if you walk it (it's only a mile). The house is well stocked with everything you might need and decor ties in with the Hershey theme. All in all a wonderful place to stay."
