About Jeffrey Edgerton

I am currently living in Baltimore. I started coming to Mt Gretna about 3 years ago and fell in love with the place. The pic above was the day I closed on the property. I am the guy on the left with the big smile. I was so excited to be able to call this cottage my own!:)

Jeffrey Edgerton purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Jeffrey Edgerton chose Mount Gretna

I had been looking for a place to purchase for over a year. I loved this place because it checked all of the "boxes". It has parking, a beautiful porch, and was in great condition and "move in ready". I was not looking for a reclamation project. It's also located on 2nd St which is one of my faves and has great views IMO. I hope anyone that decides to stay here enjoys all of the things that made me fall in love with it.

What makes this cottage unique

Large porch with swing and patio set.

Outdoor dining set for gatherings.

Downstairs bathroom.

High speed Comcast Infinity WIFI/Cable

Bar-B-Que grill

Great location.



Huge master bedroom.

Great views.

Mt. Gretna Escape

  • 5 of 5

I went to college near Mt. Gretna and always dreamed of owning a place there, well staying at Jeff's cottage was the next best thing. My family had a wonderful time hiking nearby trails, eating ice cream numerous nights at the Jigger Shop and exploring. The cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable visit. The master bedroom had a lot of space so the kids could be with us. The cottage was also very clean, has a washer and dryer, and it has off street parking! It was the perfect home base for day trips to Philadelphia, Lititz/ Bird in Hand, Hershey Park, and Indian Echo Caverns. I highly recommend this quaint cottage if you want the ambiance of Mt. Gretna and its campy feel.

Absolutely adorable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 2 night stay in this home. It was in a perfect location, easy walk to the Hide Away or Jiggershop! The home was clean and well appointed. The owner was very responsive during booking. I would definitely stay here the next time we come to Mt. Gretna!

Quiet, comfortable, welcoming cottage.

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice stay, we hated to leave. The cottage was clean, comfortable and exactly what we needed after long days at Hershey Park. Jeff is great to talk to and was even kind enough to stay on the phone with us when I got a little lost looking for the cottage. We will definitely be back!

Excellent experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time at this beautiful home in late June 2018! Communication with the owner was GREAT and he was very responsive to any questions we had both before and during our stay. The pictures we shared with friends have generated a lot of interest in both this wonderful home and Mt. Gretna itself. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the wonderful feedback and for taking such great care of the cottage. I’m so glad you took some photos and were able to share Mt Gretna and the cottage with people who have never been here. Mt Gretna is a little secret that lots of people don’t know about:). We hope to see you again in the future. Jeff

Lovely home with a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time staying in this lovely home. Everything was clean, well-stocked and beautifully maintained. TV and internet set-up all worked easily - Netflix access a HUGE bonus for rainy days with toddlers! Great and friendly communication with the owner. The location is perfect - walking distance to both playgrounds, Jigger Shop and Hideaway, easy drive to the lake. We will definitely be staying here with our family again!
