Steve was a fantastic host. We were a large group of 10, and found the entire house very comfortable and well equipped. The place is certainly family friendly, but since we were 10 adults, one person slept on the couch since the rollaway bed only accommodates one adult. Steve was a very responsive host and replied to any and all questions we had before our trip. When we arrived, he greeted us promptly and even provided charcoal for the grill. He had a very detailed list of stores and activities around the area, and we spent a lovely weekend at the house and kayaking on the Susquehana river. Would certainly recommend and we will definitely be coming back.

Thank you for being an amazing host especially in such short Notice! The whole was just perfect for my guest of 9. Would definitely come back again! Definitely come with some games or use Stephan's Netflix account. That came in so handy! Great place, amazing host! Loved the tour he gave.

Steve's mansion was everything we asked for our 8 family mini vacation! Steve's attention to detail was impeccable with all the furnishings in the house as well as the tour before going into the house itself. Would definitely rent this Airbnb again if we were in the area. We enjoyed the company of the cats as well!!

Response from Stephen:
Thanks, Jarred! Please come back anytime! Just as a clarification: there are no cats or other pets in the house. On occasion, a friendly neighborhood cat may pass through the yard.

Our family of 8 loved the place. It was close to the location of my son's wedding. We wanted a place that our family could relax and visit with each other before and after the wedding. We felt like we were at home! Everyone enjoyed themselves and Stephen was more than accommodating. The property is beautiful inside and out! I would recommend this getaway again!

Stephen was a great host. Really good communication and straight forward. Gave a very informative tour of the home and all of its amenities. The house is huge, clean, beautiful. Kitchen is awesome. Really close to all the essentials - Shopping, Grocery and Hershey. Would be an awesome place for a big family.

Our family of seven adults stayed at Ironmaster Mansion at Mt Pleasant for four nights while we were in PA for a family wedding. It was a wonderful experience. It is a beautiful home, well preserved and very clean and comfortable. Stephen's attention to detail in decorating and providing everything we needed was second to none. Upon arriving at the house we just walked around from room to room taking in and enjoying the beauty and historic ambiance of each room. We felt like we were staying in a museum. The kitchen was fantastic and well stocked with many spices and quality cookware and utensils. Stephen was very attentive and always available by phone to answer questions and make recommendations. An absolutely wonderful place to stay if you're ever in the area and we highly recommend it. Our only regret was that our stay was too short. We would have loved to stay longer to enjoy the wonderful ambiance and comfort this incredible home has to offer.
