About Roger & Jan Heller

We have lived on our farm for 44 years and have found it to be a wonderful place to raise our 4 children who are now grown. In 2014 we decided to restore this cottage and make it into a guest house and named it Hellers Hillside Hideaway. Our heart is to share our place with others who want to get away! Come and enjoy this quiet and peaceful setting nestled among the beautiful countryside. We will do our best to make your stay a memorable experience.

Roger & Jan Heller purchased this cottage in 1971

Charming country retreat

  • 5 of 5

The hillside hideaway is absolutely beautiful! The farmland, scenery and cute lodging were just perfect for a snowy weekend. Jan and Roger were so nice to us and met us after dark, since we got held up from the snow and bad roads. Lots of extra touches in the hideaway, to make your stay comfortable. We even had drinks and snack waiting on us in the kitchen; a very thoughtful gesture. The king size bed is so very comfortable, we slept without waking up each night, and the warm ,cozy, gas fireplace adds to the peaceful homey atmosphere. We highly recommend a visit to the hideaway, well worth the trip!

Cozy and Romantic

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Heller's Hillside Hideaway and it was the perfect place to celebrate our first anniversary! Roger and Jan were fantastic hosts and have prepared such a lovely, cozy, romantic place, surrounded by gorgeous fields and forest. They thought of every detail to make their guests' stay as comfortable as possible, complete with delicious homemade muffins and jam! We enjoyed playing games in the cottage, hiking at nearby Blue Marsh Lake, and visiting shops in West Reading. We highly recommend staying here and hope to come back again!

Thank you!

Lovely and relaxing...

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Heller's Hillside Hideaway this past weekend for our 30th wedding anniversary. The cottage is adorable and the hosts have the true gift of hospitality. The location is quiet and peaceful, however town is a quick trip away. If you are looking for a quiet respite from the hustle bustle of life - this is the place. We've stayed many places over the years but this place is at the top for sure.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at the Heller's. Roger and Jan are exceptionally great hosts. Their farm is very nice and peaceful. We enjoyed the property and trails. The guest house is very cozy and inviting and the Heller's thought of everything when furnishing their place. We had a great time hiking and enjoying a winery in the area. Highly recommend and would definitely return. Thank you!
