Great location, and beautiful house

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived, we were greeted by the owner who was kind enough to give us 2 free tickets to Hershey Park! We had 5 couples stay for a 3 day rental, and when we first saw the place, we were quite scared we wouldn't all fit into this house. It is very deceiving when looking from the outside. Once you walk down into the basement, it's like a whole other house- very roomy and nicely put together. We visited both the Troegs Brewery and Hershey Park, and both took about 5 minutes to get to each. One couple even walked from the house straight to the park! The Giant is extremely close also and you can get discount Hershey Park Tickets.

The house is decorated in all things Hershey. There's vintage Chocolate and Reses all over the place, it's great! The fire-put in the back yard is great, and allows you to roast marshmallows to make Hershey Smores. The one downfall is that the driveway is kind of tight to fit 3 cars, but the owner told me that we are able to park cars across the street in the antique mall, so we did that and walked across the road.

We all had such an amazing time in Hershey, and the group wants to make it an annual trip!

Fantastic Stay at Sweet Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This is a newly remodeled home in the heart of downtown Hershey. The owners have completely updated all the appliances and furnishings. While the home may appear small from the outside, it is actually spacious inside. The basement included a large leather couch with flat screen TV and an adjacent gaming room complete with flat screen TV and Wii. This home would be ideal for families vacationing in Hershey as it is only minutes from all the local attractions. The owners are always available, responsive and friendly. They clearly want to make sure you enjoy you stay. The property is meticulously clean and maintained. The bedding, towels and linens are in new and plentiful. The glassware and dishes are all new and there is enough to accommodate a larger party. All the appliances are in excellent condition. I would absolutely recommend this home to friends interested in visiting the area.
