Description of the Hershey vacation home rental
Does the family need a place to retreat to run and explore the wonders of nature? Perhaps you are planning a women's weekend to forget about daily responsibilities and focus on nurturing relationships between friends, or maybe the men are interested in enjoying some time away in a peaceful environment where wildlife abounds. Whatever your interests and whatever the season, come let our house be your home away from home.
This four bedroom, two bath home is fully furnished for your comfort and enjoyment. Located directly on the glorious Susquehanna River, this is an ideal vacation spot. The convenient river access is perfect for the vacationer interested in water sports: fishing, boating, kayaking, or tubing. Available for your use are a boating dock, kayaks and inner tubes. Not the active type but love to be outdoors during hot summer days? Come soak up the sun on one of the two decks; upper and lower, both with full views of the glistening river down below. Enjoy the relaxation on the deck while still being able to witness the rest of the families' water endeavors. Also, the house provides a great opportunity to experience an unforgettable sunset or sunrise from the inside or out. The wildlife is likely to be scampering about during any time of the day. Geese, ducks, deer, turtles and numerous bird species are natural inhabitants of the Susquehanna River bank and are frequently seen from this location. In the evening remain outdoors without worrying about insects or other pests while spending time on the screened porch During the winter months, the snow covered mountain -view is astounding.
In close proximity are other forms of entertainment as well. The Capital City provides for an array of night life activities from elegant restaurants to jazz clubs and Martini bars to high-energy dance clubs. With the capital city being only ten minutes away the entertainment opportunities are endless. City Island, also located in the down town area, offers miniature golfing, batting cages, arcade games and horse and carriage rides. During the holiday seasons, City Island offers spectacular firework displays in addition to creating a festive environment of lights and decorations. The home field of the Harrisburg Senators Baseball team is also located on the island. Hershey Park and Chocolate World are less than 30 minutes away. With the property being located just off of Rt 22/322 travel is simple and convenient.

This home was large enough to accomodate 12 people, although the fold out beds in the couches left a lot to be desired. The river and mountain views were beautiful. Some of the furniture was fairly old, but it added to our experience. Enjoyed having a place large enough to meet for a family get together. Location worked out perfect for us.

The house was perfect for our family, consisting of 4 couples and 5 kids, ages 7-13. The kids used sleeping bags and took over the floor of the master bedroom. The rest of us were in individual rooms. The kitchen was large enough for meal preparation, while the 2 tv's allowed us to follow sports as well as kid's programs. Since the weather was great we took advantage of recreation on the Susquehanna, and snuck in a couple of long walks as well. The owners were ready and willing to assist us in any way they could. We've been doing our annual fall family gathering for about 10 years now, and this situation was without question the best we have encountered.
