A private entrance leads to a spacious in-law apartment. Located beneath the main house this space is about 1,350 square feet. A studio kitchen with microwave, toaster oven coffee maker (coffee provided!). Large dining, spacious living room area with TV, well appointed master bedroom with two queen size beds, and a curtained off cove with another queen await you upon entry. A pull out sofa rounds out the sleeping arrangement. Also you will find ping-pong table and treadmill for your use.

The space
Under five minutes to Hershey attractions, The Hershey Company and Penn State Hershey. About 10 minutes to Penn State Harrisburg and Elizabethtown College and 25 minutes from Lancaster General, Franklin & Marshall, Millersville College. I quick 35 minuted to the famous outlets of Lancaster and Pennsylvania-Dutch Amish country

100% well lit private entrance, easy parking; everything you need to make your trip to Hershey a comfortable yet affordable stay.

We have the property professionally cleaned and sanitized between guests. We pride ourselves on the cleanliness of the apartment.

Sleeping Arrangements
- master bedroom with 2 queen beds (set up a bit like a hotel room)
- a cove that is being referred to a a bedroom but is actually separated from the living room by curtains (semi-private)
- a pull out couch that is moderately comfortable
- a converted wine cellar that has a twin bed (kids tend to like it)

NOTE: because this is an in-law suite below the main floor of my home you will hear me walking about from time to time. I live here alone with my dog Phlash most of the time but my children do visit so be aware that if you have a need for super quiet space this might not be the best for you. You will hear walking form time to time and while he is pretty well behaved Phalsh like to let people know he's home by barking when the doorbell rings or when the FedEx delivery truck visits.

Where you’ll be

Hershey, Pennsylvania, United States

The neighborhood is residential and very quiet with wooded surroundings. Behind the apartment there is a horse farm and to the side from which you enter is a 1/2 acre of green space where you can often spot some wildlife. You can certainly wander through the neighborhood to get some exercise if you want it is very safe - though at night it is a bit dark (you will find flash lights magnetically attached to the refrigerator).

We provide coffee for you and recommend that you arrive with beverages and basics. Steve's Country Market is about one mile away and we have directions and hours for you in the apartment unit.

One thing to note about that walk by the way is that there are some nice hills here that you could do a quick interval work out on if you wanted to.

Normal guy, normal life. I live upstairs with my dog Phlash and work from home. I'm around if you need me but way off in the background if you don't. I travel almost every week for my consulting work and stay at an Airbnb almost every week with one or two of my colleagues. I get it. Clean place, easy in, easy out...safety, comfort and proximity. I come home every week with a new idea to make the place better and work hard to make others comfy in the space.

During your stay

I'm a local with information on all types of places - fine dining, grocery markets and anything else you can think of (dive bars, public tennis courts, the best run). I also live upstairs so if you need anything while you are here that isn't in the apartment I can probably get it to you pretty quickly.
