We were so looking forward to this vacation as we lost our 20 year old niece this year and it has been quite traumatic. Well, it definitely did not disappoint! Absolutely peaceful, the whole family played tennis at night and the pool was amazing. The owners were tremendous and there is everything imaginable here. I would highly recommend it and would love to stay again! We could have stayed here and gone nowhere else, felt like home away from home!

Beautiful Countryside Escape!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a really enjoyable time at this home! My children are ages 16, 14 and 11 and they loved the pool (as did I!). The tennis court was great and after reading an earlier review before our trip, my son decided to bring his penny board and was sailing around that smooth tennis court! This house is set in a beautiful countryside location surrounded by farm land. My daughter is a budding photographer and we found the property next to this one - the Donegal Mills Plantation - fascinating. She came away with tons of great pictures! The house is also just 10 minutes from town so we were able to run in to get ice cream after dinner! On our way back home a deer ran across the road back to the house. It's truly a place to get away and enjoy the beauty of your surroundings. Oh! I almost forgot - I really enjoyed watching all the different kinds of birds in all of the trees surrounding the house! This property is a gem!

Our Second Stay - this time, with the kids! :)

  • 5 of 5

Again this year, we had a wonderful vacation at this home! We started off our summer spending 2 full days at Hersheypark and then 6 hours at Chocolate World on the third day. Other ideas we had were visiting Indian Echo Caverns, visiting The Museum on Chocolate Ave, and driving about 1 hour to Lake Tobias, a wildlife animal park. I was also interested in The Turkey Hill Experience, also about an hour away, since we all love ice cream!! We stayed in Hershey the first 3 nights, and then we drove 40 minutes to this house in Mount Joy. Once we were at the house, we didn't want to leave -- so we did not do any of the other activities mentioned above! :) At the house, we loved playing tennis. We also threw the football around on the court, we played baseball on the court, we played rollerhockey and also just skated on the tennis court. I didn't know a tennis court was so comfortable to rollerblade on. It was perfect. No sticks, no rocks. There is a croquet set at the house, and we enjoyed playing. My boys loved the huge selection of movies. I enjoyed sunbathing on the deck, reading a book. My husband enjoyed sitting under the deck, relaxing. Our boys enjoyed the pool. We used the firepit and made Smores on our last night. (We brought our own roasting sticks -- and mountain pie makers would have been a good idea, too.) I found a box of Conversation Starters about Hershey above the stove, and because we had just been to Hersheypark, we had fun answering those questions. Like last year, I appreciated the conveniences of this house that allowed us to not have to pack -- and unpack -- quite as many things!! Nancy had toilet paper, paper towels, dish detergent, dish washer detergent, and Tide. She also had a frozen pizza in the freezer and pasta and sauce in the cupboard. We didn't use either, but in a pinch, especially on our first night, wouldn't those have been perfect? There are, literally, thousands of towels and blankets in this home. We had to use our own towels at the Water Park at Hersheypark, but after that, it was so convenient to use Nancy's towels while at the house. There is, truly, everything you could need in the kitchen. We bought skewers at the store and my husband made kabobs on the grill every night for dinner. The views at this house are simply gorgeous. The fields surrounding the house seem to stretch for miles. I definitely recommend this house as a clean place to get away from it all, be comfortable & enjoy nature!

I can't say enough for how excellent this rental is the listing and description was accurate very secluded by the corn field's .

The house is back off the main roads so we did not hear any traffic very peaceful and tranquil. The location is a great drive to Hershey park. The pool was fabulous the children really enjoyed it also plenty of choices for movies to watch the linens and towels just pour out of the cabinets do not bring any towels you do not need them. And the Kitchen has many items you don't usually find in a rental which really provides a lot of options and versatility in using the kitchen, rather than some that are pretty bare bones. There tennis court was a nice touch also. I would recommend this house rental to friend's and family, thank you Nancy & Bob for a memorable stay and we hope to stay again in the near future.

It was very beautiful we had everything we could think of nice location to get back into town only 7 to 8 minutes away. Next year we will have more activities that we will do in town as well. The place is welcoming but flood lights are very needful because it gets very dark.
