5/5 Excellent


We brought my 5 year old up from New York for his birthday to go to Hershey Park and we are so happy that we chose this rental. The opened loft upstairs made it fun for the kids to sleep and the private bedrooms downstairs were cozy enough for the adults. 2 Bathrooms were immaculate and the decor very modern with a touch of country. We were happy to be on the river, enjoyed the outdoor tree swing and use of kayaks. Would certainly consider returning with friends.

5/5 Excellent

We had a great time!

Everything was great. We spent almost the entire long weekend outside on the porch, patio, lawn, dock or in the water. The games and toys (kayaks) were great. And, we saw a bald eagle as we were packing up Monday. Mike was great (we didn't meet Pam) making sure we had everything we needed, as well as bringing over firewood. Really couldn't have had a better time.

5/5 Excellent

Such a beautiful and relaxing setting

We recently stayed here with our two children and our older parents. The accommodations were perfect for us, the older folks downstairs and us in the loft area. The rustic feel of the cabin was enjoyable and cozy. Everything was clean and well stocked. Sitting outside on the covered patio with a cup of coffee and watching the river roll by was such a pleasure. Having kayaks and a fire pit was also so perfect. The river is shallow and was not intimidating to hop in and go for a kayak trip upriver and back. Thank you so much!

Family Reunion on the River

We had a marvelous time staying at the River House this summer. We were a group of 10 sleeping in the house with extra guests coming and going for meals. It worked very well for a family group. We used the couch in the living room but we did not pull it out. We had three kids on one side of the loft and a father and daughter on the other, one couple in the master and one grandmother in the smaller main floor room as well as an adult on the couch or the recliner every night. We love the new dining room addition and it was wonderful to be able to seat 10 and have extras on the window bar. We kayaked, we swam, we waded in the river, we enjoyed the rope swing and the 'porch' swing. We cooked together, grilled a lot and enjoyed the river rolling by in all lights! If you are coming to the Central PA area, you can't beat this property, easy to get everywhere in the area yet peaceful and removed.
