A Sophisticated Retreat Right By Hershey Park!

Family-friendly vacation home with water park and spa tub
This charming, 19th century brick townhouse (fully renovated in the Spring of 2012) is the closest vacation rental property to Hershey Park, Botanical Gardens and Zoo America, while ideally located in the quiet surroundings of a small neighborhood. Just down the street is a park playground for children near the Swatara Creek, which also offers great fishing, swimming, and canoe/kayaking.

The Travelers’ Post is a two-storey home impeccably furnished with casual elegance and gracious hospitality in mind. It has the feel of a boutique hotel – that’s all yours! The first floor has a living area with a pull-out couch and TV/DVD entertainment, full gourmet kitchen with stainless appliances, granite countertops, everything you need to prepare your own meals, as well as a powder room and washer/dryer. Two upstairs bedrooms, one with a four-poster queen bed, the other with a pair of twin beds, have attached baths that are sleek and modern with glass-enclosed showers and tile floors. All spaces are designed to provide soothing havens for rest and gathering, tastefully appointed with world art, textiles and antiques. The private backyard terrace with dining area is perfect for family entertaining, framed by lush foliage and dotted with decorative planters and twinkling lights.

5/5 Excellent

Great Stay and Super Close to Hershey
Thank you so much for a wonderful stay! Brant was amazingly hospitable and responded right away anytime we reached out. The property is 5 minutes from the park and is a beautiful home. We had a great experience and highly recommend this property.

4/5 Good

Super close to Hershey Park
Place was very clean. Had a very old house feel with updated kitchen and bathrooms. Beautiful floors. Super close drive to Hershey. Easy communication with owner.

5/5 Excellent

Outstanding property!!!
Loved the house so much. It has an elegance and comfort that was amazing. The kitchen is so well appointed! Everything a family could possibly need to prep all meals. The beds are comfortable and the rooms cozy. The bathrooms reminded us of boutique hotels we’ve stayed. Great internet, TV, DVDs provided as well as an XBox. The back area is relaxing and welcoming. The furnishings are modern but they exposed brick and original hardwood floors are a nod to the original design. I felt like we were far away from the “tourist” areas. There is a very neighborhood feel, but in 5 mins you are at all the Hershey tourist locations as well as surrounded by all the food and stores you can think of. I highly recommend this house over the Hershey lodging choices!!! We will be returning!!

5/5 Excellent

Perfect location to reconnect with long-time friends
We had a fabulous stay at the Traveler's Post. The sauna was a hit with everyone. The owner lives in one half of the house, but we only saw him coming and going in the driveway. We had all the privacy we were expecting. The house is cozy with artistic decor. It is a prime location, and we were 10 minutes from everything! I highly recommend this rental, and I would definitely rent it again.

4/5 Good

Great weekend in Hershey
Very nice property. Extremely clean and close to the park and downtown. In a strange location but not an issue if you are comfortable driving everywhere.
