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.

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!!

beautiful cottage in beautiful Mt Gretna

  • 5 of 5

Very pleased with all of the amenities that the cottage had. Pat was very kind and addressed a couple of minor issues that occurred during my stay. Wifi was great. The washer and dryer was a must for me and I was so glad that this cottage had this amenity.

Mt Gretna is beautiful and very nice to stroll around on the grounds. I enjoyed going to UMC and the tabernacle. The Hideaway was a great place to eat as well as the Mt Gretna Pizzaria. Post Office was very handy. Loved Porch and Pantry. I hope to be in this area again and will hopefully be able to stay in Mt Gretna.

Charming lake cottage

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with my husband and 3 small children for my sister's wedding weekend in July. This cottage is just adorable! Beautifully remodeled with modern amenities inside, but the porch helps it retain Gretna charm. Location is perfect. Though very hot weather, the inside remained cool and comfortable.

Owners were accessible and helpful. As we left for the wedding, our 4 year old accidentally locked the dead bolt on the front door. We did not discover this until we returned at 11pm, leaving us locked out of the cottage with 3 cranky and sleepy children. My husband called the owners, who were pleasant and able to help us remotely.

Overall, very pleased with our stay!

Great stay!

Great updated Cottage! Love the front porch and all the amenities. Nice that it had a front and back door and that we could park right out back behind the cottage. Already booked for next year.

Owner's Response: Glad you found the house cute and loved the front porch. As you can see from the picture of the back yard chairs the parking lot is right behind the house. I will clarify in the directions we send out that you can park anywhere in there. Thanks again for staying with us.
