About Mark and Carole Watson

We are houseparents at Milton Hershey School and live with our elementary kids on campus most of the time. We love entertaining, so even though we won't be staying in our home when you are, we will be glad to try to make sure your stay is really pleasant!

Mark and Carole Watson purchased this house in 2013

Why Mark and Carole Watson chose Pennsylvania

We chose this property because of the big back yard for playing in. There is a 20 x 40 ft. in ground pool with a diving board to enjoy. There is a play set for younger kids and a sandbox :) We love sitting in the swing in the gazebo visiting with family and friends. There is a large deck and a lot of comfortable seating. The deck has afternoon shade and with the outdoor grill it is a fun place to share a meal.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy our home because if has a cozy family room with a gas fireplace. The downstairs area can easily have groups playing games or talking in different areas so everyone can do what they like. There is a ping pong table in the sun room and a pool table in the basement. So much to do! We like the 4 bedrooms so that there is plenty of sleeping space. We think it is an attractive place to come and relax.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is what I have. Let me know what you think:)

This home was perfect for our family vacation. It is central to Hershey Park, shopping, and restaurants. The pool is well landscaped and feels like a hidden retreat! My dad, brother, and husband enjoyed the pool table often. Even though we were able to spread out it was still comfortable enough to hang out in the same room. The home was also very cozy and spacious. Thank you Carole and Mark for sharing your wonderful home, many blessings to you!

Clean, Spacious Home Close to Hershey

  • 5 of 5

We were two families of four with teenagers and thoroughly enjoyed this home. Plenty of space to spread out. The pool was great and we loved relaxing in the gazebo. The ping pong table was fun for all. Just a short drive to Hershey. We also went to the PA Renaissance Faire which was also fairly close by. The house is on a main road but it is well landscaped so it feels private. Would definitely stay here again!

Beautiful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this property. It was central to everything we wanted to do. And to have our coffee in the morning in the gazebo was very relaxing. We also enjoyed the pool. Next year I plan on coming back and bringing my grandchildren so we may enjoy Hershey Park. Thank you Carole and Mark for sharing your home.

Great Place to Stay, Relax and Play after Days at Hershey!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed our time at this family-friendly home. It was about 10 minutes to Hershey Park in a cute neighborhood filled with ball fields and playgrounds. The pool was lovely and there was plenty of space to hang out. We will hopefully return!
