Jan and Russ were such great hosts. Felt very welcomed upon arrival to a place just as described and more! Upon entry, the house smelled of deliciouschocolate cake, and I was greeted with a warm smile. Jan and Russ offered suggestions for local restaurants, which they provided a great recommendation to Harper's Tavern. The sleep number bed was extremely comfortable and easy to use. The chocolates around the house was a nice addition, especially for those with a sweet tooth. Waking up in the morning was also a very pleasant experience with a great filling breakfast all prepared for us. The omelettes and salsa were fantastic, and the bread was to die for. Thank you Jan and Russ for all your hospitality and graciousness.
Michael, you and your friend Erin were great guests. We enjoyed hearing about your professional work and your plans to experience the Hershey Park roller coasters. All of them! Michael you are so kind and gentle, we were amazed that you won over our rescue cat, Chili, who is afraid of everything. You will forever be our "cat whisperer"! We hope to see you again in the future. Thank you for your review.
My husband and I stayed at the Chocolate Cottage while we were in Hershey for a few days. Jan and Russ are fabulous and very accommodating. We were always asked if there was anything we needed. Jan had to leave to go out of town, but luckily we did get to chat with her when we first arrived, but for the rest of our stay we dealt with Russ and Linda. Desserts were always fabulous and breakfast was to die for. The house is gorgeous and very well decorated. The pool was a little cool for my taste, but they obviously take good care of their property and I love how secluded their property is. However, within a few miles is anything and everything you could want. We didn't have a set schedule, so Russ, Jan, and Linda had great recommendations for us that we enjoyed. Without a doubt we would want to stay at the Chocolate Cottage if remotely in the area again!
Excellent place to stay.. Jan and Russ have done great job in creating an atmosphere which is warm and welcoming. Love the decor! Really felt like we were visiting family. We slept comfortably and actually hoped we could stay another day ;-).
The evening treat was wonderful; delicious Lemon cake .. yummy!
Breakfast was great. Anyone who comes across this listing..should truly consider.
Jan and her husband Russ have a very special B&B. They really care about their guests and do their utmost to ensure that you have a wonderful stay. They are friendly, warm and welcoming. Their home is in an excellent location and the accommodations are comfortable & clean. We especially appreciated the lovely sheets. My boyfriend needed to leave early every morning to attend the Hershey Car Show and Jan was happy to serve a delicious homemade breakfast. She also offers a homemade dessert in the evening served with coffee, tea or wine. We had a great stay and have already made a reservation for the same time next year. I give Jan & Russ my highest recommendation! If you are traveling to Hershey, PA this is the place to stay.
I have a newly opened B&B just 10 minutes from Hershey PA and the Hollywood Casino & Racetrack. The Chocolate Cottage B&B, of course, with Hershey's chocolate so close by. I am Canadian/American and recently retired from the Public Education Assoc. for Pennsylvania. My B&B is on 5 acres of oak and pine trees along the historic Swatara Creek. It's very peaceful but close to all the entertainment in Central PA. Five things I can't live without: kayaking on my creek, traveling to other parts of the world, flip flops, my grandchildren, and chocolate! My husband and I have traveled extensively in Central America, St. John VI, and Canada. As guests, we have stayed in jungle huts in Belize, tree houses on the island of St. John, and B&B's and cottages in Canada. We are located within an hour of Lancaster County and Carlisle. We especially enjoy hosting car show participants and attendees. We have 2 rooms to rent, each with a private bath. And we would love to introduce you to all the unique and fun events and activities that Central PA has to offer it's visitors. We are laid-back hosts that will provide you with as much or as little assistance in planning your day as you may request. Did I mention that we always have homemade chocolate desserts available to our guests? Our life motto is a well-know one but it suits us perfectly - This life isn't a rehearsal!
