About Ms. Ruth Carreno ruthacarreno@comcast.net

Hello and I sure do hope you will join me in this lovely little village; as I call it 'spittin distance' to the fun and excitement of Hershey. Me?? a retired, die-hard customer service specialist. Restaurants, business dining, catering, you name it. I was side-lined a couple of years back by (2) major back surgeries, so I opened the apartment to folks wantin' to have a great time in our neck of the woods. Not only will you enjoy all that this area has to offer on a vacation, but, 'lucky you and the kidlet, will meet and play (and play, and play) with the rescue puppies. By the way, you like horses, we got a bunch of 'em. Just waitin for the kidlets to feed 'em carrots and apples, so bring the camera and you will remember forever the days your kidlets learned about horses; FreighTrain Willie, Lucky, Buddy and all the rest of 'em.

I sure hope you will join me for the 'best-rest' time of your life in the second Sweetest Place in Hershey. See you soon, and thanks for stopping.

Ms. Ruth Carreno ruthacarreno@comcast.net purchased this apartment in 1998

Why Ms. Ruth Carreno ruthacarreno@comcast.net chose Dutch Country

Didn't plan on doin this so soon, however, when I had two ,major back surgeries, couldn't work, I thought about it for a long while. And, when I had some folks come and stay at the apartment at the beginning, met them, found out how nice they were, and how much fun we had sitting out front at the fire pit and glider, I jumped in. It's been a great adventure. The folks visiting me are just so wonderful, and have made many new friends; thanks!

What makes this apartment unique

The absolute quiet surroundings, minus the doggie welcoming howl, of course.

....and of course, the wonderfully, comfy beds; Hmmmm!

We had a FABULOUS time, and Ruth is a Doll!!!

  • 5 of 5

My two children and I were coming into Hershey for just one night and Ruth graciously allowed us to rent her apartment. She greeted us in the driveway with a big hug ( it was like we were family) and took us in to show us the lovely apartment. She has it decorated so quaint. We met her sweet doggy and she was sad that our puppy couldn't make it, do the fact that we didn't have room for him with all of our stuff!!! We asked her for a recommendation for dinner and it was FANTASTIC. When we got home the apartment was all cozy and we had a great sleep in our comfy down pillow and down comforter bed. It was like we were royalty. We just had a great time and can't wait to come back for a girls spa weekend. Thank you Ruth you are truly a gem!!!

Comfortable basement unit.

  • 3 of 5

The space provided what we needed, but was not quite what we originally expected. The entry is through the garage, the lighting is dim, the kitchenette is very small (1 person wide), and there is a lot of decorative items set around. It was really nice in that we had multiple seating options (which is not always the case), and easy access to get around central Pennsylvania to the various attractions we were interested in visiting.

Ruth was a very cordial & accommodating hostess helping with things needed to ready our vehicles for showing. The location is very convenient to Chocolate World and Hershey Park. It's furnished with the essentials of home away from home.
