The Space The basement is a shared environment, but you do NOT share the sleeping quarters or bathroom. The house does have Central Air but I hardly use it. Since the area is in the basement, it stays mostly cool in the summer, but a fan is also provided. Guest Access Enjoy the great room with an overview of the deck and back yard. Great spot to birdwatch. Oh and we also have a beehive! There is also a front room/living room with a leather couch and bay window. Excellent for reading!
Chow down in our dining room at the simple, glass table. Interaction with Guests Happy to interact and be helpful, while respecting each other's privacy! The Neighborhood Very quiet and peaceful. Safe and friendly. Getting Around A great hideaway directly off Route 83 and PA Turnpike! Close to Harrisburg, York and Hershey. Only 1-2 hours from D.C. and Baltimore. NYC is about 3 hours. Other Things to Note Friendly warning: If you are barely tolerant of animals, you probably won't enjoy this environment!
We are located 5-7 minutes from downtown Harrisburg, PA, (the PA State Capitol) which is on the Susquehanna River. Harrisburg offers many dining options and I would be happy to make suggestions. We are 5 minutes from Ski Roundtop; 15 minutes from Messiah College in Grantham, PA; 30 minutes from Carlisle, famous for its car shows, the Army War College and Dickinson College; 40 minutes from Historic Gettysburg and the Civil War Battlefield; and 30 minutes from Hershey, PA with Chocolate World, Hershey Park, the Antique Auto Museum and its famous antique automobile show. The Amish community can be experienced in nearby Lancaster County which is a 45 minute drive. We are also not far from many points on the Appalachian Trail if you are feeling adventurous and outdoorsy. The nearby Yellow Breeches Creek offers tubing, kayaking and canoeing as well as fly fishing. Boiling Springs, a charming historic village located 20 minutes away has a trout catch and release area on the Yellow Breeches Creek and a great fly fishing shop. Harrisburg International Airport is 15 minutes away and BWI Airport is 1.5 hours away. ...
