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.

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!

It had a lot of great space for two families with kids!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the pool! There were some fun pool toys available also. The box of legos was a great find for the kids. The ping pong table was also very nice. There were towels, bedding, and pillows. There were not wash clothes but maybe that isn't in the listing? We will look closer next time.

The house was a great location for getting to Hershey. The owners met us when we arrived and they were very nice!

Stierle family reunion

  • 5 of 5

The house was just perfect for 6 adults and 2 grandkids...The yard is beautiful with a lovely pool that we all enjoyed..

Meet Carole & Mark when we arrived very lovely people..

We all loved the pool table and ping pong table...

Bedrooms were great sizes..

Really had a good time there..Didn't get to use the fire pit due to sprinkles at night..Real close to Hershey Park and some Brewery..

Thanks again.

The Stierle Family

Great vacation

We truly enjoyed our stay at this home. It was very warm and welcoming. The amenities were great, our young children loved the pool, ping pong table and pool table. It was also close to many of the area attractions. We definitely look forward to returning.

Family Fun House!

  • 5 of 5

The house in Palmyra was amazing! We had a great time! It was extremely clean, spacious and had everything we needed. The pool was perfect and kept the kids occupied for hours! The backyard was so big, perfect for the kids to run around during the day and catch fireflies at night. We loved roasting marshmallows in the fire pit. It was also just minutes from Hershey and all the attractions. We couldn't have asked for a better house! Thank you Carole!
