Creek House in Penns Valley
average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews
Hershey, Pa

Beautiful secluded spot

  • 4 of 5

My family including grandchildren had a blast here. The setting is a picturesque rustic house right along a beautiful stream with plenty of yard for kids to romp and play beside the stream. The house is quite rustic but that adds to the charm. Cozy wood pellet stove on first floor is about the only heat source, but very nice and fun to sit next to for conversation or reading. Be aware that no bathroom exists on the first floor, but the floor plan lends itself to large gatherings with friends or family with a porch outside in the front and a few decks along the side of the house. The place is a few miles from charming Millheim, where there is a great microbrewery and pub along with a specialty coffee house. About 40 min drive from State College in beautiful country.
