Tremendous Property

  • 5 of 5

A group of my friends stayed at the property over the President's Day weekend and we had a wonderful time. The owner is very responsive and flexible in terms of check-in and check-out time and the place is clean and kid-friendly. The owner even mailed us back a bag that we had left behind! Slow and spotty wifi is the only negative I could think of. Overall I can't recommend this place enough for a large group who's looking to get away with lots of rooms and open space!

This is the third year our whole family share the weekend before Christmas here. It's a tradition.

  • 5 of 5

The. Farmhouse creates a wonderful atmosphere the weekend before Christmas. There is lots of space for everyone, young and old. Perfect island in the kitchen for grazing with all the supplies anyone would need. We all love it.

Great Vacation as Always!

  • 5 of 5

This was our group's 3rd consecutive year at the Farm House, and it becomes more fun every year! We went across the street to Spooky Nook Sports, and rented an indoor field one of the days which proved to be a lot of fun, and another day went to the Hershey Light show and Troegs brewery. We love that there is enough room for a large group like us to stay every year, and almost enough seats for us to sit around the table for dinners. The one improvement I think could be made is the TV in the main living room is quite old and we wanted to plug a laptop into it so that we could play a group game, but the TV was so old it didn't have the correct inputs (HDMI). Other than that, we really enjoyed our stay. Thanks again!

An Absolute Joy!

  • 5 of 5

After traveling to over 50 countries in the last 3 years and staying in rentals, we have to say hands- down this was the most beautiful, relaxing and comfortable place we've ever rented! Jillian and Kevin were so, so accommodating and answered questions and requests quickly. We had our wedding there so there was lots of coordination and they were always available and gave us so much flexibility. The hotel on the same property was close enough for guests to walk to bit fast enough away to give us our privacy. This was a huge benefit for our wedding. The surrounding properties were also beautiful and provided beautiful walking paths and wonderful picture back drops. The house has everything you might need and is clean and comfortable. Even our local wedding guests were blown away wits the paves and wanted details on rental. This place was just perfect!

The house and property are a classic farmhouse and grounds.

  • 5 of 5

We got what we expected. A great old very house, snicely modernized in many ways. The house was very comfortable, even thought the floor plan was broken up due to a history of expansions. The Kitchen and Dining areas were excellent for a large family gathering. Grounds are beautiful with a great view of the stream behind the property, beautiful old trees, including walnut. Great place for extended family stays. If you have toddlers bring at least two gates. Would definitely use this place again and recommend it.
