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

Why Natasha Harmuth chose West Chester

Why stay anywhere else when you can have a large, private area with all the amenities of home in a picturesque setting? This comfortable home, with all NEW queen size beds, will invite you to a good nights sleep with all the day activities just minutes away.

What makes this house unique

If peace and quiet when away from the events that bring you to town is what you are looking for, then this is the home away from home you've been dreaming to find!

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.

Thanksgiving 3 generation Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We have found the perfect home for our family gathering at Thanksgiving! This 3 story 1970's contemporary is a tremendous find!

Located just outside West Chester, Pa., this house is tucked into a development just south of th WCU stadium. A cheap UBER ride to downtown nightlife for the younger generation makes it extra special. It is perfect for our 3 generation extended family's 3 day Thanksgiving sleepover! 5 bedrooms outfitted with fresh linens and bedding, plus large gathering spaces both indoors and outside including a hot tub/bar area give us plenty of room. There is a huge kitchen to prepare ongoing meals, large grill on the deck, a giant family table that seats about 16 for games and conversations. Additionally the house has a great living room with large screen TV. We love the place so much that our family has a standing reservation for our Thanksgiving Gathering indefinately!

The owner is extreemly kind and has been a pleasure to work with. She even added items that we needed for our second stay.

This is a wonderful home with a great location for visiting the Chester County Area or spending time enjoying family without ever leaving the property! A short drive gets you to The Branywine River Museum, Brandywine Battle Field, Wilmington, DEl., Lancaster County and Philly. Your choice of day trips could keep you busy for weeks!

I highly recommend this property, it is wonderful.

Wonderful Girls' Weekend Stay

  • 5 of 5

We were 7 ladies gathering for a reunion and were so pleased with our stay at Natasha's home. Plenty of room for us to spread out, come together and relax. Kitchen had everything we needed (should we have chosen to eat there....) and having 3 full bathrooms was great. Easy drive to QVC, Longwood Gardens, Kennicott and downtown West Chester. Found some great places to eat while we were there.

Thank you, Natasha!

Great host and house

  • 5 of 5

Natasha was a very accommodating host and the property is really beautiful. The house is in a suburban cul-de-sac, but it is very secluded and private. It feels like you're nestled in the woods. The outdoor deck is fantastic.

Owner's Response: So happy that you enjoyed your stay. I agree that the home is close to local attractions but makes you feel like you are in the mountains. Hope to have you visit again. Natasha
