BOOKING SPECIALS FOR SUMMER 2017

JULY 4TH IS NOW AVAILABLE!!!!

Book this special home that offers one of the closest VRBO/HomeAway locations to the entrance of HersheyPark AND also offers your family or group the benefit of outdoor activities in a nature packed and very private area.

Guests who book at our advertised rate for Summer 2017 will be permitted free use of kayaks, float tubes, gas grill, fire pit (wood not included), and fishing poles (please make sure you have proper permit for fishing in PA).

Although this pricing special is for reservations with 8 or less total guests, the home can accommodate up to a total of 10 guests for an additional fee.

This property has all the privacy and natural habitat our guests desire with the convenience of being just five minutes from the Hershey attractions!! The home is a waterfront property with beautiful morning and evening scenery and the occasional deer or bald eagle sighting! Ducks, geese, squirrels, and many varieties of local birds make their home around Eagle Bend.

Welcome to Eagle Bend Estate near Hershey, PA. This beautiful waterfront property is private and is located just five (5) minutes from the best that Hershey has to offer (HersheyPark, Spa, Chocolate World, and Downtown Hershey). Spend an entire day at the house kayaking, floating on tubes, fishing, or simply capturing all that nature has to provide (ducks, geese, deer, squirrels, and many varieties of birds) at the ONLY waterfront guest house located in the Hershey area.

We have limited dates available at our home as we do not rent it out much, but those who get to rent this newly renovated home have a spectacular time. The dates we are staying at our home are already reserved on the calendar so any dates showing open are available.

The home has a modern kitchen with a very open floor plan (entire first floor living area is open). There is ample seating for guests and a double sided see-through fireplace that is the centerpiece of the open living arrangement. Three bedrooms and two large bathrooms provide for comfortable sleeping and room to get ready each day. The home is equipped with a tankless hot water heater so you won't run out of hot water like in many guest/vacation homes. We also provide you with use of our washer and dryer in case you have the need to do laundry.

Eagle Bend is a peaceful retreat and place of healing. Land that was once home to the Susquehannock Indians, explorers, trappers, and early settlers, this property just outside the Village of Union Deposit lives up to the unique setting and experience it provides.

Known as Eagle Bend Estate to signify the family of Bald Eagles that have nested near this unusual and unique bend in the Swatara Creek. The 'Swattie' and its tree lined banks frequently serve as a frame in capturing the intimidating and majestic view of one or more Bald Eagles flying up or down the creek. In addition, deer, waterfowl, squirrels, and various inland bird species frequent this tranquil setting.

Your stay at Eagle Bend Estate will afford you the convenience of location with privacy not found in most vacation rentals. Eagle Bend Estate is designed as a 'destination' vacation where guests can choose to take in all the recreational opportunities surrounding the property and utilize their visit to re-energize avoiding the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Guests may also choose to combine the excellent recreational offerings and tranquility of the property to complement trips to HersheyPark, Gettysburg, the AACA Antique Auto Meet, Penn National Race Track, Amish Country, or some of the many other great activities Central Pennsylvania offers.

Whatever extra activities our guests decide to add to their stay, relaxation and enjoyment is the goal at Eagle Bend Estate.

Eagle Bend Estate (main house) offers over 2,300 square feet of living space with a grand main living area containing living, dining, and custom kitchen all surrounding a beautiful floor to ceiling see-through fireplace and a covered deck with panoramic views.

From the living, dining and kitchen areas guests will be able to view wildlife and the creek through a wall of windows that are seven feet high and span the thirty-five foot length of the home. A large bathroom complements the main floor which contains a shower and tub combo.

On the second floor, guests will find spacious rooms with sleeping for eight to ten people.

The second floor bathroom is large with a double sink, linen closet, and also includes a separate shower and custom air tub.

We strive to make your experience at Eagle Bend Estate and your vacation to the Hershey area enjoyable and memorable. We will provide you with information on local attractions, restaurants, and possible some of the locals favorite spots that are off the beaten path.

In addition, Eagle Bend Estate staff provide guests with National Weather Service links (cell phone text plan necessary) to stay on top of local weather alerts in the Hershey area. No matter if you are at HersheyPark, in the theatre, or out on the water, these updates will keep you informed of any weather patterns that might help you plan alternate activities.

About The Owner

We welcome you to our home, Eagle Bend Estate. We are excited to offer you the opportunity to experience the best of Central PA while staying at one of the more unique Guest House locations.

Our property manager and caretaker will see that you are welcomed and that your stay is enjoyable.

Why The Owner chose Pennsylvania

We chose Eagle Bend as our home for it's unique location. It is within a few minutes to everything convenient and commercial, yet located in a setting that would make you think you are miles off the beaten path.

You will find that Hershey, Hershey Entities, and the surrounding Central PA area has some of the most friendly people. In addition to the people, you will have the opportunity to hear stories and gain experiences that will capture your heart and create memories you will hold for a lifetime.

What makes this house unique

We love our time at Eagle Bend because it has some of the best that nature, recreation, history, culture, and entertainment has to offer. The Hershey area has something for everyone.

What makes Eagle Bend a unique part of the Hershey experience for a visitor is that it provides a 'destination' experience. If you love nature, outdoor, and recreational activities, you wouldn't need to do anything else except spend time at Eagle Bend. From fishing to kayaking/tubing to bird watching to nature trails to sitting and relaxing without interruption, there is an experience waiting.

One of the best things we like about the home is the beautiful fireplace which is the focal point as you enter the home. With an ability to enjoy the see-through fireplace from both the living room and the kitchen, it is a perfect amenity.

We loved how big it was and the outside was beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

We loved how big it was and the outside was beautiful! We were able to canoe and we saw deer bathing in the water, geese and other types of birds. It was very spacious and had a good amount of seating. The shower upstairs was missing water pressure, the floors could have been vacuumed a little better and it would have been nice to have blinds over the curtains to keep the sun away and the shade in one of the rooms was broken. But we would stay here again and it was very peaceful!

Nicely kept and great location

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Eagles Bend. It is close to Hershey Park. The creek is relaxing. We didn't bring our kayaks this trip but it was still nice to look out over the water. We saw a bald eagle and various other birds and water creatures. The house has everything you need.

Warm and cozy in the woods.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation right next to the Hershey parks, but away from tourists secluded in this private cozy home. Very comfortable and homey. Very clean and had everything we needed. Perfectly located near town and Hershey. We even saw deer right outside the window.

Peaceful getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was a very roomy, yet cozy, getaway close to all the Hershey attractions. The home was very clean and property management communicated very well. This was a peaceful getaway for our family of four and I highly recommend it.

Highly recommend Eagle Bend Estate

  • 5 of 5

We spent 2 days in late September at Eagle Bend Estate with our cousins (4 adults, 2 toddlers, 2 infants). It was the perfect house for us, and we were all so happy we decided to book it! The house was very clean, the first floor had a perfect open floor plan for the kids to run around, and the babies to lay on the floor and play. We had a BBQ on the deck overlooking the beautiful river. The kitchen was modern and all of the utilities worked great.

The upper level had PLENTY of room for all of us. The kids had a blast with the bunk beds and enjoyed the huge tub off the master. It was also great to have the washer and dryer there.

The outside was beautiful. Large secluded land surrounded by trees and the river of course. At night, we enjoyed s'mores by the fire pit located on the property.The kids enjoyed running around and exploring.

The location was PERFECT. It was just 5 minutes to Hershey Park but tucked back in a secluded area, so no noise at all, just the sounds of nature. We wish we had stayed longer!

We would definitely recommend staying at Eagle Bend Estate!
