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 Brandywine Valley

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!

Suburban retreat

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to West Chester was a fun family get together. The house was clean, comfortable and well laid out for an extended family get together. Travel to West Chester was a breeze, and our trip to down Philadelphia was easy. The hot tub was fun and TVs great for watching football. Had a wonderful experience!

Beautiful home, great for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Rented home for a family out of town wedding. Love the home. Beds were new and comfortable, kitchen and dining room are just gorgeous, and outside deck, bar area, and hot tub just added to the comfort and amenities. The only down side is the outside lighting on the front of house at night. It was a rainy weekend and several family members almost slipped on walk way due to no lighting, owner really needs to address this issue, otherwise no complaints and would recommend this house to family and friends. Loved the quiet street and large yard with fire pit.

This was the perfect house for our weekend.

  • 5 of 5

Several friends stayed the weekend for a music festival in Chester PA. This place was only half an hour drive from the venue. Great place to relax after an all day rock show. Loved it. Hot tub was perfect. Nice and private with plenty of space for everyone. Awesome kitchen. Just wonderful. Would definitely like to stay again.

Nice property with nature all around

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this home. Traveling from Kansas City with our entire family, we needed a place with 5 bedrooms and preferred not to stay in a hotel. This home was the perfect fit. We saw deer out the kitchen window one morning and enjoyed the deck. Unfortunately the hot tub water was scummy so we weren't able to use it so if that is important to you, I'd encourage you to let the home owner know that prior to your stay. It didn't limit our family so was not an issue. The kitchen was fully equipped, except for a coffee brewer. The option was a kuerig and bringing our own K-cups.

Lovely place to spend our Summer Months!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I live in Florida and spend our summer months in the West Chester area. We have family in the area and love spending time with our three grandkids. My wife also loves to cook, so we wanted to rent a home with a nice kitchen and many bedrooms. This home was absolutely perfect! The owner was wonderful and attentive to our needs. During the 9 week rental, we ran into a couple of minor issues. The owner was responsive and dealt with our issues quickly and without any disruption to our vacation. You do not get much better than this in most rentals.

This home has a wonderful deck area with a hot tub. It also has lots of wildlife in the back year, which is huge. My granddaughters absolutely loved the deer, the little fox and the many birds that frequent the area. We enjoyed spending time either in the wonderful kitchen or time spent out on the deck with two grills and that relaxing hot tub. Our 2016 summer was truly outstanding!

Comfortable and picturesque!!

  • 5 of 5

After browsing many house listings around the Philadelphia area, I chose this one because of it's spaciousness. We were a family of 10 converging for a graduation and this house accommodated us generously. We spent most of our time close to Philly but got to run around West Chester a bit too. It seems like a great little town with lots of little shops and eateries. We highly recommend the Split Rail Tavern as it was a great way to top off a day of travel.

The hot tub was a great bonus. The house was well equipped and it's layout was suitable even for my mother in law who doesn't get around as well as she used to. Our host communicated well with me before we arrived and responded to a couple of needs in a timely fashion. We loved the setting, listening to the birds and spotting some wildlife walking through the yard. We had a wonderful weekend!
