About the Property

3 bedroom along Yellow Breeches Creek

Located near Mechanicsburg and Camp Hill (suburbs of Harrisburg), Pennsylvania, the Yellow Breeches Cabin is a cozy 3 bedroom vacation home sitting directly on the banks of the Yellow Breeches Creek, a nationally renowned location for fishing and popular for kayaking and canoeing. Its proximity to US Route 15 and Interstate 83 make it only a two hour drive outside of the District of Columbia area and Baltimore, 30 minutes to Hershey (Chocolatetown, USA and home to HersheyPark), 15 minutes to center city Harrisburg (the Capitol of PA) and 40 minutes to Gettysburg with its infamous Battlefield and outlets.

A stay in the Yellow Breeches Cabin offers year round activities. In the winter, take a 15 minute drive to Roundtop Mountain Resort (formerly Ski Roundtop) and spend the day on skis, snowboards or go tubing, day or night. Or you can drive 20-30 minutes to Hershey, PA and visit Chocolate World, Hershey Park or go shopping at the Outlets of Hershey.

Spring, Summer and Fall are wonderful times to stay at Yellow Breeches Cabin. The tranquil, scenic Yellow Breeches Creek is a perfect spot for kayaking, canoeing and tubing. Imagine having a cup of coffee on the deck and walking a few steps to the creek to cast your fishing rod or wading in the creek with your dog!

The Yellow Breeches Creek is home to many waterfowl including ducks and geese which often float down the creek and graze nearby. You may see an Egret who likes to hang out on the banks to fish! Also, there are often white tailed deer seen foraging in the front and side yards of the cottage and walking along the wooded banks of the creek.

For your furry family members, there is a fenced in side yard with a shade tree so they can romp and play safely. If they are water loving dogs, they will love to swim and find rocks in the creek. And located just less than 1 miles away is a dog park and walking trails at Lower Allen Park.

If you like to golf, you can almost walk to Liberty Forge, home of an 18 hole golf course as well as a miniature golf course and restaurant.

There is a kitchen, stocked with pots, pans, cooking utensils and coffee pot and microwave, as well a laundry area with washer & dryer. Each bedroom has a full size bed with comfy pillow top mattresses. The living room has comfy oversized reclining sofa and chair, perfect for relaxing and watching movies, sports and high def channels on the large 55' flat screen tv. Keeping the cabin cozy and warm is a propane gas fireplace. Verizon FIOS Wifi allows you to work on your laptop !

There is a large collection of dvds and games for entertainment and books for those lazy days.

Also, if you need more space or the cottage is unavailable, check out the sister property next door, Yellow Breeches Cottage, Property Number VRBO #350526.

So if you are in Central PA for business or pleasure, why stay in a hotel when you can have the amenities of home!

The Yellow Breeches Cabin is conveniently located within 5 minutes of Route 15 and Interstate 83 and approximately 5 - 10 minutes to shopping malls and many restaurants. It serves as a nice 'home away from home' base for visitors to the Central PA area whether the visit is with family, friends, day trip to Hershey, Gettysburg, Carlisle, Harrisburg, York. Why stay in a hotel when you can have the amenities of home on a beautiful creekside setting? Plus dogs are welcome too!


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: The Yellow Breeches Cabin is owned by Clark Frese and managed by his sister in law, Lisa Frese. Both Clark and Lisa have dogs, Labs who love the creek, and are glad to be able to accomodate guests who enjoy or need to bring along their dog family members. Clark and Lisa both live near the cabin and are glad to provide info and suggestions on visiting Central PA!

Why Mechanicsburg, PA, USA:
4 years ago Clark and Lisa bought the property next door, the Yellow Breeches Cottage, which has become a popular and appealing home for guests to rent. When the property next door came available, they immediately bought it and are excited to offer a second property for guests visiting the area! Together Lisa and Clark have transformed the Yellow Breeches property rentals into a 'home away from home' for out of town visitors to Central PA! Both Clark and Lisa live across the creek in a development on a hill and love the location since it is close to their homes for managing purposes but more importantly can attest to the beauty and serenity of the Yellow Breeches Creek. It's tucked away but not too far and local amenities such as restaurants, golf, movie theatre, skiing, shopping and more add to the appeal.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
When you are looking for a place to stay, why visit a hotel where you can hear people talking, tvs through the thin walls, doors closing and people walking down the halls while cramped in a small area, maybe with a coffee maker? And then most likely you cannot bring your furry dog family member! Or maybe you are visiting family in the area but need or want your own space? There are most likely no other properties for rent in the Central PA area which are on the water in a setting that is both serene yet close to major amenities. You can relax in a home away from home setting and take in the beauty of the creek while being close to where you may need to be. The central location to many communities in the Greater Harrisburg area such as Mechanicsburg, Camp Hill, Hershey, Carlisle, Dillsburg and the Capitol City of Harrisburg make the Yellow Breeches Cottage appealing to guests visiting family from other cities and states.
