Anita Housman purchased this house in 2014
The house is a family property built in 1972 by my husband's father. Family being very important to him, he sought to create a warm, welcoming home for his children, family & visiting friends. Coming from a large family, there were many family gatherings & memories made in this house. Through the years, as families grew & some passed on, we continue to keep his legacy alive. We do everything we can to provide a warm, welcoming "home away from home" for our guests.
As a hobbiest & crafter, the house was set up with crafters & quilters in mind. However, we maintained the flexibility of being able to turn the house quickly into a vacation tourist home for visiting guests.
The house is just off the Middletown Hummelstown exit of Route 283. It's convenient location gives quick access to the Pennsylvania Turnpike and the Harrisburg International Airport. Just minutes from Hershey, you'll be able to stay in an affordable location without having to drive great distances to enjoy the attractions.
We were in town for a mini vacation in Hershey. This house was perfect for what we were looking for. We have 5 children ages 6 months - 15 years old and it was perfect for every one of them. Anita's attention to detail is outstanding. She came to greet us and was so warm and welcoming. We felt as if she was a friend within moments of meeting her. The house was clean, comfortable, just wonderful - and the enclosed back porch was a nice bonus. The children loved going back there to look at the deer.
I really can't think of anything that we missed. It was very quiet, we felt very safe, just a beautiful home that I see many more stays in when we visit the Hershey area again.
The house was very clean and had enough kitchen utensils to prepare breakfast and snacks. A nice quiet location but close to the attractions and restaurants. It was a little difficult with just one TV and basic cable with the grandchildren but we made it work. The owner couldn't have been more helpful and courteous. Thank you.
Thanks Anita so much for opening your house to us. We had a wonderful time. It was nice to spend the day in Hershey and then come back to the house that was very accommodating. From meeting us at the house, showing us around, leaving Hershey chocolate's on each bed for us and seeing the birds fly each morning it was such a relaxing atmosphere.
My family will definitely be coming back soon....
I wanted to throw a surprise birthday get away to Hershey Park for my boyfriend and have our friends surprise him at the home. Anita's home could not have been more perfect! It is so close to the park and absolutely beautiful. I wish we stayed longer because the house was so relaxing! Anita is just as amazing as her home is! She had great recommendations for us for the weekend and helped me keep it a surprise. I definitely will be rebooking at this location again!
The house was perfect for what we needed! There were 7 of us staying in the house. It was spacious enough for all of us to be there. The house was very well kept up, and very clean. The family definitely went above and beyond my expectations. Anita gave me a ton of ideas on what to do at the Hershey factory, places to eat, and other fun things to do around town. This was my first vacation with my children and I couldn't have asked for a better to stay with them. THANK YOU SO MUCH!
We loved staying at Ridgeview Retreat. We had 5 adults and 2 small children (6 & 4) and we had more than enough room for everyone. My husband and I are early risers so we would fix our coffee and go sit on the enclosed back porch. It was very relaxing to watch the birds and deer out the back windows. The home is located on a quiet street with plenty of open space. Craft supplies were available (we did not use) and there were baskets of toys for the kids to play with. The kitchen had every type of gadget imaginable. My only recommendation would be to add a DVD/BlueRay player.
Close to all area attractions at Hershey, PA ; An easy drive to Lancaster, Harrisburg, Carlisle & Gettysburg
