About Cindy Fetty

My husband and I enjoy working on our home, hiking, biking, and hanging out. We grew up outside of Pennsylvania, but really love it here. We are houseparents at a local boarding school for low income children and bought our home as a project, somewhere to stay when we are not working and as a way to make as extra income to help pay for schooling, missions, and possibly adoption someday.

Cindy Fetty purchased this house in 2013

Why Cindy Fetty chose Pennsylvania

We loved this home the minute we walked in with all of it's old charm and wood everywhere. It had a lot of character!

What makes this house unique

We have a great front porch swing that might be fun to take the time to hang out on. There are lots of areas in the home to be by yourself even if you have a large group traveling with you. You will not feel crowded in on each other except maybe in the bathroom. It has a cozy feel and lots of character.

Our family absolutely enjoyed calling this home for 2 weeks!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 13 spent two weeks in this awesome home. We enjoyed so much about the home itself - spending time on the front porch on the swing or doing projects and games at the table, the back yard sections were perfect for collecting fireflies (lightning bugs), and the large table in the dining room was very adequate for everyone to sit at one time to eat or enjoy games and crafts. The large spacious kitchen was great with lots of counter space and plenty of cabinets. We made breakfast each morning and many times our lunch as well. Having the laundry room was a bonus. The living room at the front of the house had plenty of space for playing with toys or enjoying a show on the large screen television. Our daughter was able to continue teaching English to her students in China, thanks to the available wifi connection. There were some games and toys at the house for our young ones. Also, a pack n play for our youngest one to sleep in. Everyone had a comfortable bed in which to sleep. The a/c units worked great, so despite the heat and high humidity at times, we were very comfortable. We loved the doorbell tones. And, the fact that you could tell if the guest was at the back door or the front door, based on the sound of the doorbell. The location is perfect. Like the ad, it is definitely close to all things Hershey. Close enough to make a late night run to Chocolate World for a yummy cupcake or for yet another ride through Chocolate World. The home is also convenient for trips to Amish country, to Harrisburg, or many other locations. We enjoyed walking to church each Sunday. As well as walking to the square of Palmyra and checking out the fun shops along Main Street and some of the side streets. And, the post office is only two doors away if you need to mail post cards or send packages. Our experience with Cindy has been very rewarding. She is very prompt at replying to our communications. Also, her mother-in-law, Helen, was there to greet us and give us they keys upon arrival. If the opportunity presents itself for all of us to return to Pennsylvania in the future, we already know where we will be staying. Thank you, Cindy! And, thank you to your husband for all the projects he has done around the house that enhanced our stay.

Family trip to Hershey

Our family of 14 had a wonderful stay, including 7 kids from ages 3 to 14. The location was very close to Hershey. Cindy was very informative and helpful. She met us when we arrived. Everything was as we expected.

Great house and area!

  • 5 of 5

We were so thankful to have a house that could fit all our family members. We had 10 people one of which being an infant. We appreciated the highchair and toys/books. The value of having a house all together instead if separated hotel rooms was fantastic! The kitchen was perfect. The proximity to all the things we wanted to do in Hershey was wonderful as well. The house is older but definitely a charmer. The beds are a little hard but everyone had a bed which was the point. Overall, we would stay again. And Cindy was so so so nice! Thank you!

Hershey Park Bachelorette

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for letting us stay in your beautiful home. We had a blast... ESPECIALLY THE BRIDE TO BE! This house has so much character and all 8 of us ladies loved It! A great bachelorette weekend getaway. Minutes away from Hershey Park and there is a local Wine Tour company near by! Great house for all ages; even families. Would definitely visit again!

Thanks!

Great place and close to everything

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cute home. Cindy was a great host and answered any questions we had. There was more than enough room for our party of 10 and the location was great for getting to Hershey. It is definitely an older home so don't expect a luxury stay, but the oldness just added to it's charm. It was clean and comfortable. We didn't have to worry much about the kids breaking anything. We would definitely stay here again!

The only downside to the home is that because of it's oldness, the doors are all loud and creaky. So every time someone got up to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, I heard it. ☹️ Also, the cabinets and drawers in the kitchen were not easy to open. They really needed some knobs.

But other than that, we loved it and had a great time!
