About Emily Towers
Emily, Dave and our 3 kids reside here. Dave works in men's ministry to help churches sharpen their men and strengthen their church. We are listing our house for some additional income!
Emily Towers purchased this House in 2012
Why Emily Towers chose Lancaster
It is reasonably priced and perfect for a family or two to stay in and take in the local attractions.
What makes this House unique
It is child-proofed and ready for families! Lots of room to play and have fun. It is clean and well kept but not "pristine" and it doesn't have very many valuable, breakable items to be concerned about. It is also located by many Lancaster County attractions, but also a short drive away from Hershey, PA, the Susquehanna River, and much more.
Additional, reasonable pet fee would be required
Minimum age of primary renter:25
Max guests:9 (sleeps up to 9 adults)
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
Good for families
Good for families, lots of space, hosts were very nice to work with.
Excellent family friendly HOME!
My family, 6 adults and 4 children, ages 5 and under, spent a great week at this very family friendly home. Emily was extremely quick to answer my many questions and helpful with recommendations for excellent restaurants nearby. Close to Dutch Wonderland, Hershey Park, a splash pad, swimming pool and Daniel's Dan (fantastic playground for kids). Our grandchildren loved the toys in basement, running in the large yard and using the swing - the adults enjoyed relaxing on the deck in the evenings . The house had 2 child gates, booster chairs in dining room and well-equipped kitchen. We found the subtle reminders of God's love and grace in this rental to be uplifting. It felt like a HOME, not just a house. We had everything we needed for a wonderful vacation and would definitely recommend this rental home.
Cleanliness is not Godliness
Decent home, convenient location for what we needed which was a visit to Hershey and a wedding. Home is lived in this families main home with many don’t do this and don’t touch that. Owner requires large security deposit and mandatory insurance for just an eh house. No control of AC unit on one of the hottest days of the year. No pillow cases on pillows which I thought was very strange and unsanitary. Instructed to bring own towels as definitely do so, towels provided had feces and holes in them. We found living roaches and bugs by play room area and garage entry then noticed the traps in the kitchen. No cable and very Christian themed in your face in practically every room and songs when you turn on TV that only provides Netflix. Mold in bathroom tub upstairs. We’ve stayed in many share homes just think owners don’t realize what they are offering or what is out there. I would shop around. Motel sanitary level. Owners were friendly but was grossed out and Jesus attacked left and right. We’re not religious or Jewish but feels over the board. Would recommend shopping around. Thanks for the short stay but not worth the Anxiety of bacteria/disease
My sincere apologies that our house did not meet your expectations. We aim to provide a place for people call "home" while they are renting our house and we clearly did not meet your expectations. You are the first guess that has not been satisfied, so in addition to apologizing, I'd like to address a few of your concerns:
* It is our home that we only rent when we are not there and we ask renters to treat it with care.
* The towels that you reference were for a dog guest. I'm sorry that you mistook it as a bath towel!
* You are correct that we only have a satellite that provides a few basic cable channels and we have Netflix. My apologies that we do not offer a wide array of TV channels.
* We will certainly check for any evidence of roaches and bugs in playroom (basement) and exterminate them. We spray regularly and have never seen roaches or any type of bug infestation so I'm quite curious as to your claim.
* We will be sure to check closely for mildew in the upstairs tub.
* Some of your comments dealt with linens and towels. We do not provide them, I'm sorry it was not clear that pillowcases were not provided.
Lastly, we are Christ followers and we do have several signs around the house for personal decor. My apologies that these signs offended you.
We make ourselves available to our guests and wish you had contacted us with any of these issues. We would have been happy to have them quickly resolved.
Thank you, you did a great job taking care of our home.
All our best,
Great place for families.
Wonderful, responsive hosts. Thank you for letting us stay here.
Great location and plenty of room.
Stayed here for a family vacation 7/20-7/23. Close proximity to Green Dragon, Lititz, Adamstown, etc. and easy to find. Owners were very responsive when we had a question about one of the TV remotes. Would stay here again.
Paula and her family were great guests and left the house in excellent shape. We would be happy to host them again.
Great for families
We really enjoyed our stay in the Lancaster area. The house was great for our families and the yard and play room were wonderful for the kids.
The location was within 15-30 of most attractions and there are shops/restaurants within 5 min of the house which is very convenient.
