Property description

This 4 bedroom, 3 full bath home comfortably sleeps 10, each in their own twin bed! Great for groups who wish to tour! 1 hr to Philadelphia, 3 hrs to NYC and Washington, DC and 2.5 hrs to Atlantic City! Large workroom with tables for crafters.

The Space

Welcome to Legacy Retreat House. This historic house in Reading, Pennsylvania was over the course of its lifetime: a tobacco shop, a speak- easy and the toll house for the trolley that ran to Carsonia Park- once known as the place to go in Berks County! In fact, one of the beams used in the ceiling during a recent renovation is from the old trolley tracks. You can see from our photos that this home has grown and been added onto several times in the last century. Now, you'll find this house is a wonderful place for groups to get together for pleasure or business.

We hope you will bring your friends and relax with us for a weekend. Whether you scrapbook, quilt, make jewelry, stamp, or study scripture, you can find a favorite spot in our house to do what you like to do best. Make your memories come to life -- come stay with us.

We are minutes away from Reading and Allentown and close to Amish Country and outlet shopping!
