Just the right size, not to big but not to small, this one is just right
Built in the 1900's and remodeled in 2015 Storybook Cottage is located right in the heart of Historic Mount Gretna Camp Meeting.
It is within walking distance of interesting summer music and programs, an outdoor play house, good restaurants, a sweet playground, miniature golf, an old time roller rink and the fun filled Mount Gretna lake is only a mile away.
Mt. Gretna's location gives you access to all central Pennsylvania has to offer. So if you decide there is not enough to do in the area, Hershey is only a short 14 miles away, Lancaster is 45 mins away and Gettysburg no more than an 1hr and 15 minutes away. The area also host many other tourist attractions; there is bound to be something everyone in your group will enjoy.
It is the perfect get-away spot for a couple, two couples, a family or a group of 6 friends.
Porch sitting is a favorite pass time in Mount Gretna.
The large porch on this cottage is a pleasant place to hang out and enjoy the outdoors and the company of those with you and those passing by.
Mt. Gretna is a quaint cozy village located in the mountains between Hershey and Lancaster Pa. Come relax and hang out on the porch while making up your mind about what to do next and there is much to do!. You might want to walk to the Mt. Gretna Playhouse to take in a Musical, or listen to local talent featured in the Mt. Gretna Camp Meeting Tabernacle located just steps away from the cottage.
Take a stroll back in time to eat at the famous ice cream parlor called the 'Jigger Shop' or swim at the Mt. Gretna Lake where you can still swing on ropes and drop into the lake. Hike the trails at Governor Dick Park or Bike on the rails and trail, located across the road. Bring you skates or rent a pair and visit the Mt. Gretna Roller Rink where live organ music is played.

About the owner: My family has been coming to Mt Gretna for years to enjoy all it has to offer. My father and his family are from the Hershey area and tell wonderful stories of the "old days" in Mt Gretna
Why the Owner Chose Mount Gretna, PA, USA:
It has so much potential but was so neglected. We knew it had good bones and loved the porch, so we took on the project to remodel it and give it's charm back. It was a huge project but one we took on with gusto and love.
