Description from owner

Located near Mechanicsburg and Camp Hill (suburbs of Harrisburg), Pennsylvania, the Yellow Breeches Cabin is a cozy 3 bedroom vacation home sitting directly on the banks of the Yellow Breeches Creek, a nationally renowned location for fishing and popular for kayaking and canoeing. Its proximity to US Route 15 and Interstate 83 make it only a two hour drive outside of the District of Columbia area and Baltimore, 30 minutes to Hershey (Chocolatetown, USA and home to HersheyPark), 15 minutes to center city Harrisburg (the Capitol of PA) and 40 minutes to Gettysburg with its infamous Battlefield and outlets.

A stay in the Yellow Breeches Cabin offers year round activities. In the winter, take a 15 minute drive to Roundtop Mountain Resort (formerly Ski Roundtop) and spend the day on skis, snowboards or go tubing, day or night. Or you can drive 20-30 minutes to Hershey, PA and visit Chocolate World, Hershey Park or go shopping at the Outlets of Hershey.

Spring, Summer and Fall are wonderful times to stay at Yellow Breeches Cabin. The tranquil, scenic Yellow Breeches Creek is a perfect spot for kayaking, canoeing and tubing. Imagine having a cup of coffee on the deck and walking a few steps to the creek to cast your fishing rod or wading in the creek with your dog!

The Yellow Breeches Creek is home to many waterfowl including ducks and geese which often float down the creek and graze nearby. You may see an Egret who likes to hang out on the banks to fish! Also, there are often white tailed deer seen foraging in the front and side yards of the cottage and walking along the wooded banks of the creek.

For your furry family members, there is a fenced in side yard with a shade tree so they can romp and play safely. If they are water loving dogs, they will love to swim and find rocks in the creek. And located just less than 1 miles away is a dog park and walking trails at Lower Allen Park.

If you like to golf, you can almost walk to Liberty Forge, home of an 18 hole golf course as well as a miniature golf course and restaurant.

There is a kitchen, stocked with pots, pans, cooking utensils and coffee pot and microwave, as well a laundry area with washer & dryer. Each bedroom has a full size bed with comfy pillow top mattresses. The living room has comfy oversized reclining sofa and chair, perfect for relaxing and watching movies, sports and high def channels on the large 55' flat screen tv. Keeping the cabin cozy and warm is a propane gas fireplace. Verizon FIOS Wifi allows you to work on your laptop !

There is a large collection of dvds and games for entertainment and books for those lazy days.

Also, if you need more space or the cabin is unavailable, check out the sister property next door, Yellow Breeches Cabin, Property Number 53338.

So if you are in Central PA for business or pleasure, why stay in a hotel when you can have the amenities of home!

“My daughter's wedding”

Reviewed 4 Oct 2016

We stayed here to attend my daughter's wedding. The accommodations were perfect and the setting on the creek was gorgeous. We will definitely be back again! Tracey was phenomenal and a pleasure to work with. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful cabin with us! Sincerely, Randy and Ginger Groff (New Bern, NC)

Owner's reply: So glad we could provide you a wide open space for everyone. Wedding weekends are such great fun when there is plenty of room for everyone to spread out and things to do outside with the kids. Glad it was a success!

“Relaxing Escape”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2016

This house is wonderful and in a great location. Hershey 30 minutes, Gettysburg 40 minutes very close to Lancaster and Carlisle. The owner Tracey is wonderful, house sits directly on the stream, the back deck was so nice and relaxing to sit out on. It is an open floor plan so Kitchen, dining room and living room are all together, so we could all be together when preparing meals and lounging. Our family of four plus our Chocolate Lab had a great time.

Owner's reply: So glad we could make your vacation one to remember, including the dog.

“A great getaway!”

Reviewed 11 Nov 2015

Perfect for a couples stay or a group. Creek is a few steps away. The deck is spacious and will make everyone glad they came. Fire pit for anytime of the day fun. Furniture is very comfortable and a big 60" TV for football or movies! Not the sort of place you have to take your shoes off to go in... But was clean and comfortable stay. They also have a smaller rental on same property (no privacy issues), looked like a newer building and a lot smaller. Have to list at least one con..... Booking the rental was not the smoothest transaction, but at no point did I feel the owner was not trying their hardest to get it done. May be my inexperience in the whole process? No doubt, all of us agreed we would stay again!
