A great place for a great price!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends gathered here for a five day retreat. We had a wonderful time! The house is charming. The hosts were very attentive to responding to any questions we had. There are two different living room/gathering spaces in the house which is also a really great feature. All this comes at a very reasonable price too!

Great place for a big family!

The "Tree House" was a perfect fit for my family of 6. The location of the house allowed us to visit Hershey Park, Lancaster and the lake. The house was clean and fully stocked with everything we needed. I would definitely recommend staying their to anyone looking to visit the area.

good home

  • 4 of 5

Tree Tops was a good home for our Mt. Gretna stay. Glad to find a home that would accommodate the number in our family. Glad for a very workable kitchen, air conditioning, screened in porch, great room, multiple bathrooms, and parking. Helpful owner. We love Mt. Gretna! You made our stay comfortable. Thank you. We look forward to a return visit.
