"We loved our stay at Sylvan Retreat. It is a great place to get away from the craziness of life and enjoy the family. Our 1 year old LOVED exploring the grounds. Perfect Vacaction! And a big thank you to Phil for having the high chair, pack and play, and baby bath ready for us."

Perfect Accomodation; they thought of everything!!
"We have just returned from a week at the White Tail town home and our family of 5 - 2 adults and 3 teens had a fantastic time there. Upon arriving everything was as described. Check-in was very easy and the house was immaculately clean.
The house was a veritable home-from-home; the kitchen was fully stocked with appliances, utensils, dishes and pots and pans, we had brought napkins, paper towels etc. with us, but they were not needed. Bed linens and towels were abundant.
The house is equipped with tennis racquets, fishing gear, laundry and dish detergent (all items we brought with us but didn't need).
Everything was in order and little communication was necessary but when we did contact Mr. Fields he replied very promptly. Our only question was the location of the laundry facilities, which were in the Inn building beside the pool/hot tub area and we needed to get a key from the office.
One of the highlights of the trip was the frequent backyard visitors, deer, several fawn, birds and bunnies. We loved to sit out on the deck with our coffee, enjoying the peace and waiting for them to arrive.
Whilst there, we took day trips to Hershey Park (1 3/4 hours away), Gettysburg (60 minutes drive) and the Renaissance Faire in Manheim, about 2 hours.
We ate one night at Flannery's on the Square which was on the whole a decent meal (see my review here - http://www.yelp.com/biz/flannerys-tavern-on-the-square-mercersburg?utm_campaign=www_business_share_popup&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_source=(direct))
The house is only 20 minutes from Hagerstown over the MD state line where we found a mall and chain restaurants such as Buffalo Wild Wings and Outback.
The pool and spa were spotless and the tennis courts well kept just a few minutes walk from the house.
Definitely a place we would return to for the ski season when amenities and activities would be more closely located."

"My husband, my daughter and her wife, and our 21 month old granddaughter spent the weekend in this beautiful historical house. The house was very clean, quite comfortable, and so quiet. The kitchen was fully equipped for our needs. We loved the location of the house and its surroundings. The yard was large and included a small slide which my granddaughter really enjoyed. She also enjoyed seeing the cows that came very close to the fence surrounding the yard. It was fun being in Amish country and learning more about the Amish, especially by means of a buggy ride which was located close by. Although the house is in the country, it is not far from a number of small towns and restaurants. Overall, the house was a great choice for us!"
