About Natasha Harmuth

I grew up near Chocolate-town, USA (Hershey is about 90 minutes drive). I moved to the West Chester area in 1982 to go to the university. I loved the area so much, I made it my home after graduation. I love the country fresh air and small town feeling, but excited to be so close to Philadelphia, Atlantic City, NJ, and Wilmington, DE.

Natasha Harmuth purchased this house in 2003

What makes this house unique

Everything was more than expected.

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased to arrive at Chalet Deerwood and find everything just as described! We were in the area for our son's wedding and used the house as our home base. Our son, his best man and two groomsmen stayed with us along with their wives. We had the best time catching up with everyone. We hosted a catered rehearsal dinner there and, with the mild temperatures, enjoyed the use of the outside patio area. (A shout out to L:imoncello Ristorante and Caterers, they were great!) If I ever have the need to return to the area, I would certainly look to this property again. If you need a thanksgiving or special event space this is it.

Well maintained, easy access, all as advertised, and pics don't do it justice.

  • 5 of 5

Brief stay with a group of my groomsmen and some significant others, 30s. Beautiful home secluded enough for privacy but close enough to anywhere in the area with car or cab. Didn't do much cooking but a great kitchen with island/bar setup if it rains. Cabiny feel downstairs and full on chalet on the top two. All the beds clean, big, comfortable, and plenty of towels provided. Not as big a deal since I grew up in the area but thought it was funny I actually did see deer in the neighborhood if that's your thing. Thanks again!

Beautiful home and a perfect backdrop to our bachelorette weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Natasha for sharing your beautiful chalet with us. We enjoyed the open space kitchen and dining area as well as the back deck. The landscape was gorgeous. A deer even came up to the kitchen window to greet us the first morning. We are looking forward to coming back next year!

Great place for a group gathering !

  • 5 of 5

We had opportunity to bring the extended family together for our sons wedding. The House was great , lots of room and great outdoor space . We had some plumbing problems first day , which host resolved right away. One watch out, the house is on a hill, so only way to get to main floor and deck is up a flight of stairs or up several cement steps. It was a bit of an issue for my 2 elderly parents, but they were able to make it. There was a lift chair in living room, which was a godsend for my dad. Wish we would have had some more down time to enjoy the hot tub and fire pit. If we ever come out to West Chester again , we would definitely stay again.

Cozy Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This house allowed my parents, four sisters, their spouses/children, extended family, and friends to have a place for quality time together. Five of us flew across oceans to celebrate one of my sisters weddings, and it was beneficial to be able to relax comfortably. The spacious outside area and kitchen were our favorite! I recommend this home to any family who likes to entertain!
