About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

Quaint does not begin to describe this 2 bedroom, 1 bath house can sleep 4 or 6 if you use the sleeper sofa. Historic Mount Gretna is centrally located to Hershey, Lancaster, Philly, Gettysburg and much more all are only a 15 min-1 hour drive. You can enjoy them from the comfort of this cute, totally updated cottage. After a day of exploring come home and enjoy a glass of wine or a cool beer on the front porch. Porch sitting and visiting is a key pastime to be enjoyed in Mt. Gretna. You actually never have to leave Mt. Gretna to have a super vacation. There is the large lake to swim in, miniature golf, an old fashioned skating rink, the fairy garden, an amazing outdoor theater, to name just a few of the great things you can do while visiting. Visit this site to learn more about Mt. Gretna. .

Timber Shadows was totally remodeled in 2017. You will be surprised how much space you have to enjoy the indoors and the outdoors all in a neat little package. We will provide sheets and towels for an additional 50 dollar fee. We charge for these as we have to pay to get them cleaned and provide them as an option to keep the price down for those who want to bring their own. There is a queen bed, a queen sofa sleeper and twin bunks.

Relaxing stay

Relaxing stay in a beautiful town for our family of four. Walking distance to area restaurants. 30 minutes from Hershey, PA. Nice hiking trails close by.

Very impressive and cute

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in mid June. The house is exactly as pictured. Mt. Gretna is a bit difficult to navigate initially, but once we figured it out, it was no problem. There is easy parking for this unit in the church parking lot directly behind the house. All the amenitites in town are great too. We got to try The Hideway, The Jigger shop and Porch and Pantry. All were great. The house was immaculate. The kitchen was the perfect size, and well equipped. So cute and quaint on the outside, and very modern and updated on the inside. We had some initial confusion, but Pat was wonderful and responded and solved all our problems. If we come back to to this area, we would definetly stay in this exact house again.

very clean and updated

  • 5 of 5

We really had a good time staying here. The streets were a little hard to negotiate but we got the hang of it. It was nice to come back each night to a home and not a hotel room.

Charming little cottage

Cottage was set in a beautiful setting. House was completely remodeled, had everything you’d need for any type of stay....long or short. Would absolutely recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay near Hershey or Philadelphia.

Cute, cozy and clean!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here, its so clean, really updated, and decorated so nicely. The village is adorable, my son called it an elf village. Its not that far from Hershey at all, where we spent most of our time. The Mt Gretna Craft Brewery was very fun, great beer and good food. Would love to come back when its a little warmer to enjoy that front porch, very hygge!!
