About this listing
We would love to share our spare bedroom with guests from all over the world! It's a 10' by 13' room, just steps away from a bathroom with tub and shower. The room has some closet and drawer space and internet access. Our kitchen and dining room are open and cheery. We also have a three season room off the side of the house which is a lovely space to relax and read. We have a fireplace in the living room that we can light for your winter pleasure! (We burn REAL wood!) Central AC keeps the house cool in the summer.
While here you can expect peace and quiet and beautiful sunsets out the front window of our living room. We offer coffee and tea in the morning.
Our neighborhood is a mix of farm fields and wooded lots. The Hershey Medical Center is 2 and a half miles away. Hershey town, with the attractions of the amusement park, gardens, outlet mall, the Giant Center, and many restaurants is just 3 miles away. To the west, on the way to Harrisburg, Indian Echo Caverns is a great place for family fun. Just 10 miles from Hershey there is the interesting capital city of Harrisburg including spots such as "City Island" in the middle of the Susquehanna River. To the east, at about 30 minutes drive are the Renaissance Fair, Lancaster attractions with the Sight and Sound theater and the lovely Amish community.
The Capital Area Transit bus makes many stops in Hershey. The nearest train stations are in Harrisburg or Elizabethtown. The Harrisburg International airport is 10 miles from our house.
Our "place" is unique in that my husband and I speak French, so we welcome French speakers! There are not too many French speakers in this "neck of the woods"!
Interaction with Guests
We enjoy interacting with our guests, but we are sensitive to their different personalities and we try not to be too talkative!
We like that our neighborhood is kind of out in the country, but just a block away, one can take a walk in a calm residential neighborhood on a less busy road than where our house is located.
We expect our guests to entertain themselves and take care of the premises.Try to be quiet after 10 PM, although they can go and come as they please.
About the Host, Debra
My husband and I have enjoyed having many different people stay with us over the 40 years of our marriage. For 25 years we lived and worked in Africa and our lives have been enriched by many different people from all over the world. We love learning about other cultures and hearing the stories of other peoples' lives.
One of our favorite countries is Switzerland where we lived for 18 months to learn French. Some of our favorite movies are "The Terminal", "Salt", "Argo", "Slumdog Millionaire, and "Les Miz". We enjoy different types of music and food...and playing with our grandchildren!
We love to laugh and try to see the bright side of every situation!
