Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Pat-

I just wanted to let you know that we thoroughly enjoyed our time at your

beautiful cottage in Mt. Gretna. It was very clear that you paid attention

to every detail that would make us feel comfortable and at home from the

time we arrived until the time that we left. We quickly remembered all of

the things that we loved about Mt. Gretna and will definitely be booking

with you again.

Thank you for opening your beautiful home to us. We had a wonderful time!!

My sons are STILL talking about the loft area and begging their dad to

build them a "hideout."

We had a great stay at this restored cottage in the Camp Meeting development of Mount Gretna.

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was spacious, clean and combined both some modern updates while keeping a cozy, rustic feel. The gas wood stove in the living room / dining room was a nice touch. We were in town for an extended family event in the greater Hershey area and found this location pretty convenient, and worth a little drive time for the space, privacy and exposure to the beautiful PA countryside.

The Camp Meeting development was an interesting place with many clustered homes around what is predominantly pedestrian roads / paths. While mostly older home, the character and appeal of the area has been maintained. I would stay at this location again should a similar event or activity come about.

We've been occupying this VRBO property the same week for the past 5 years. It's always clean, comfortable, and convenient to Hershey Park where we attend the car show. It's unique setting adds to the fun of the week-end.

The Cozy Cottage was everything that you described. We had everything we needed for a fantastic time at Mt. Gretna.

We hope to come back again in a year or two and would certainly stay at the cottage again if it is available. Thanks!

Very comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was a girls week-end at this cozy cottage. There was four of us and we all had our own rooms. Pat supplied us with everything plus what we needed. We were in Mt. Gretna for the Joyce Myer Conference which was in Hershey. It was about 1/2 hour drive which we enjoyed driving it and seeing the countryside. We were very comfortable there and the neighbors were very friendly too. Would love to stay there next year when we come back to the conference again. Thank You Patty & Friends
