About Anita Housman
We are a busy family, active with baseball, our kids & life! Scrapbooking & crafting for over 20 years, we wanted to provide a place for folks to be able to sneak away to do the things that they enjoy We too are lovers of the Hershey area & attractions & spend free time visiting some of the area wineries & other antique malls & area attractions as a family.
Anita Housman purchased this House in 2014
Why Anita Housman chose Middletown
The house is a family property built in 1972 by my husband's father. Family being very important to him, he sought to create a warm, welcoming home for his children, family & visiting friends. Coming from a large family, there were many family gatherings & memories made in this house. Through the years, as families grew & some passed on, we continue to keep his legacy alive. We do everything we can to provide a warm, welcoming "home away from home" for our guests. As a hobbiest & crafter, the house was set up with crafters & quilters in mind. However, we maintained the flexibility of being able to turn the house quickly into a vacation tourist home for visiting guests.
What makes this House unique
The house is just off the Middletown Hummelstown exit of Route 283. It's convenient location gives quick access to the Pennsylvania Turnpike and the Harrisburg International Airport. Just minutes from Hershey, you'll be able to stay in an affordable location without having to drive great distances to enjoy the attractions.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Nice getaway close to the park
We were overly impressed with the property and with the hospitality that Anita showed us. From the Hershey kisses in every room, to the tips about the park and location, her overly friendly personality matched the charm of the property. She made several recommendations about local restaurants that we followed and were not disappointed.
The house it’s self is quaint, very clean, and extremely comfortable. You will feel like you are home when you stay there. Three good size bedrooms all with fresh linens, one and a half baths, and a very large enclosed back porch offers scenic views of the wildlife out back. Very nice kitchen with plenty of plate-ware and glasses should you need it.
Overall, we were very happy with the place and can see ourselves staying here again rather than going to an expensive Hershey Hotel that offer half as much as this place did.
We had a great time, wonderful place to stay!!
Great Scrapbooking Retreat
I and four of my girlfriends had a great weekend of scrapbooking and shopping. The house is very clean. Kitchen is spacious and well equipped for cooking, plenty of counter top space. The scrap area was set up with enough room for 5 of us plus all of our scrapbooking totes and supplies. There is still plenty of room for an additional person to scrap. A cricut is provided with a nice selection of cartridges for our use. The stamp supply available is fantastic - so many stamps to use. We also got much use out of the Big Shot and embossing folders that are available.
Location is great. The house is located on a quiet street but is only minutes from Hershey and Lancaster.
We loved our weekend and look forward to booking another one.
It was a pleasure hosting such a great group! I look forward to having you return back for your weekend away! :)
Perfect family getaway!
Our daughter and her family live in Middletown, and we wanted to spend the holidays together. We brought our three youngest kids - ages 20, 15, and 11 and everyone was comfortable and pleased with this lovely home. It is close to downtown, but not right in it. My little granddaughter enjoyed the books, puzzles, and the spacious yard. And the Hershey kisses were a huge hit! Anita is warm, welcoming, and available. My daugher cooked the turkey at her house, and we had everything we needed to prepare our half of Thanksgiving dinner. All 10 of us ate together by putting the folding table next to the dining table. My kids joked that no one was banished to a "children's" table apart from everyone else. My daughter plans on moving in the next year, but if I'm ever returning to the Hershey area with a group of friends, I know where I'll be staying!
This is a great house and the location to area attractions was perfect for our family. Anita is a wonderful hostess and very attentive to all of your needs. The little touches such as Hershey Chocolates on the beds was the cutest. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
The Luce Family
It was a pleasure hosting! Definite 5 star rental experience! Thanks for taking such great care of the house while you stayed there! We hope to see you again if you’re ever back in the area!
Just what we were looking for - Very family friendly!
We had a great experience here. The owners were very responsive to our needs and went above and beyond to ensure that we had a good stay. We have a family of 5 children and stayed here for a week. We went to Hershey Park and Gettysburg. This fit our needs well as the older kids were able to play outside while the younger ones napped. I would stay again if I were ever back in the area.
We could not have asked for a better rental experience! It was a pleasure meeting you & your family as you traveled to Hershey area. Your children are THE most well-mannered & polite children that we have ever met! You should be PROUD! No doubt you are awesome parents!
It was a joy hosting your stay and we hope that if you ever return back to the area that you'll be sure to visit again!
Close to all area attractions at Hershey, PA ; An easy drive to Lancaster, Harrisburg, Carlisle & Gettysburg
