This is an exceptional home! It was everything I expected and much much more. My family from 4 different states stayed with us for my son's wedding in Elizabethtown and we were are delighted with the accommodations and wanted for nothing. Thank you Jillian and Kevin for the most memorable vacation ever! Well worth every cent! Only wish the wedding would have been held here!
Fantastic place. Our large family of 17 had plenty of room. Very clean. Well Maintained. Enjoyed!!
Owner was very responsive. Clean and suitable for all our needs. Small children really enjoyed themselves. We had a great time for our large family. Thanks. Jeff
Our 2nd time renting your beautiful home.
Your home does accommodate our family of 17. We enjoy the pool as a place to just hang out together. Although since you started doing weddings it seems that you have cut off space in the kitchen cabinets by putting so many dishes and pots and pans more so than last year. And the room next to the kitchen where the big closet is with the folding doors was locked and we used that to store our snacks and some other food and our ice chests. So we lost that and had to rearrange all the cabinets in the kitchen so we could have room for our food. With 17 people we needed more room for storage. The two refrigerators are a nice touch and a blessing. The grounds are beautiful and we enjoyed the fire pit although we enjoyed it more when it was closer to the house so we could put our s’mores food on the table outside the kitchen. The tent for the wedding was pretty but it took away from the grounds that we had before. We just felt we were a little more restricted than last year. Again, it’s a nice location and we liked the fact that we were 30 min away from Hershey Park, and Lancaster. We did enjoy the little room where the other refrigerator was because of the table. It was perfect for doing jigsaw puzzles. We had a few little problems but we called and they were taken care of. Thank you again for sharing your beautiful home. We enjoyed our stay.
Beautiful House in a Lovely Location
Our entire family enjoyed this property from July 8 to 11, 2018. The house is accommodating for parties of 17 to 20 people, with plenty of rooms to enjoy television, games, meals, and even a pool table. We all enjoyed the well kept swimming pool and hot tub. The owners were extremely accommodating and helped us with whatever was needed and came quickly when we called. I hope we can rent this property again for our family as all of us enjoyed our stay.
Love this place!
This was our 4th year renting Spooky Nook for our annual family vacation. We absolutely love it here. There is plenty of room for all of us which can be between 15-20 people. The kids love the pool, the yard, and the putting green. There is plenty of things to do in the area, and we do go out and do some of them. However, our favorite thing to do is hang out together by the pool.
We are already working on renting again for next year.
By far the best experience ever! Would love to stay here again in the future.
