4/5 Good

nice getaway
This home was as advertised, with additional touches like insect repellent, binoculars for bird watching, and flashlights by each bed. Owners were always quick to respond, both prior to arrival and while on site. We spent a lot of time on the deck, enjoying the water view ... but not the mosquitos :-). Also watched a storm roll in through the big windows in the dining room. Our group included elderly Seniors, so were unable to enjoy the grounds as a younger family would. If you're a light sleeper, traffic noise from the nearby highway and frequent freight trains (across the river) takes getting used to. Very good take out dinner from the nearby Stoney Creek Inn.

5/5 Excellent

Great property
Fantastic property on a beautiful river.

5/5 Excellent

Relaxing River stay
Our family enjoyed our time together in this beautiful and relaxing setting. The covered porch with the great view of the river was our favorite place to start the day, spend the day, and end the day.

5/5 Excellent

Best rental
Beautiful views, they thought of everything to make this a memorable stay with my family. A lot was included.

5/5 Excellent

Great House on the Susquehanna!
We loved our stay at this house! Great location from Hershey park and the outlets, because of high flows in the river we couldn’t use the kayaks, but we did sit out by the fire every night! The house is equipped with everything you could need, literally, the kids lived the loft space on both sides of the house they had their own space, this is a great rental for kids of all ages. We cooked meals in the kitchen which was fully stocked, we didn’t have to supply anything except food! We will most likely be returning next year! Pam and Mike thank you for doing a great job with this property!
