The space

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"!

This was my second visit and was just as good as the first. Very comfortable room. Debra is very easy to talk with and makes you feel very welcome. It’s lovely to sit out on the porch and enjoy the countryside. I look forward to returning when in the area.

We had a wonderful stay! Debra is an amazing host, the bed was comfortable, and their sunroom was lovely to chill in for those early mornings we had to get going early.

Debra is a very kind and interesting person. The home is very clean, though replete with its long history of family life and memorabilia . The room we stayed in is on main floor down a hallway flanked by two other guest rooms and a shared bathroom. The bedroom is small, barely …

Response from Debra:
I'm so sorry you had a restless night, Santina, I would just like to respond by saying that 99.9 per cent of my guests HAVE appreciated the bed and have never complained about not having barely enough room to get dressed in the room. I realize that the curtains and blinds don't keep out the bright morning sun and I will now plan to do something different with the window treatments to keep the room darker. Thank you for your honesty, and also for mentioning the positives as well. I hope you had a great time with your daughter.

Debra was great! She gave a good dinner recommendation and had the Keurig ready for coffee in the morning. I had a wonderful time chatting with her until I left. She thought of everything, and was such a kind soul to speak with. I was glad our paths crossed!
