    Relaxing weekend getaway with Bible Study group

    My friends and I wanted to find time to relax and get away for the weekend. We meet over Zoom each week for our Bible Study/ Life group so we wanted to plan something in person. It’s A Charmed Life Cottage was absolutely lovely for our stay! The rustic feel to the house only showed in the beautiful wood finishes- otherwise the cabin is quite modern feeling for cooking purposes. We stayed warm the whole trip (except when we stepped outside of course!). We had a blast playing games in the family room and eating dinners at the table. Overall, it’s a great place to spend quality time together. What was particularly pleasing was the surrounding neighborhood of old cottages, many of them Circa pre-1900s! Every house was unique- like a little hidden gingerbread town of cute houses. My friends and I loved walking around outside to see more or the village.

    Charming home

    The house was so nice and cozy. It was very clean. The hosts were very accommodating. I would definitely stay here again. Mount Gretna is such a charming area. This house fits right in.

    Great Experience!

    This is a must stay if you are in this area. The property is great. It’s in a wooded area, and it’s very quiet and serene. Along with being a great place to stay, the owners AND cleaning group are great people. My dad’s significant other accidentally left some rings and watch. The owners contacted us to let us know that the cleaning crew found them and would mail them to us. Great people!

    Perfect Getaway

    Cute community! Perfect for walking around. I would recommend arriving in the daylight as a little difficult to find your way around the streets in the dark. House was very clean and perfect accomondations for a small get together. Beds very comfortable. Dining room perfect for meals or game night! Host checked in with us on check in by text. Would definitely rent again if in the area! Thank you Joe for the conversations!

    3 night getaway in October

    We greatly enjoyed our stay in Mount Gretna. The house was great! Clean and comfortable, the updated interior suited our style while allowing us to still enjoy the timelessness of Mount Gretna. While you cannot park cars immediately in front of the house, this was not a big deal as we easily found parking within a 2 minute walk. Overall great place to stay!

    Joyous time at “ It’s A Charmed Life “

    Words come far short to describe the experience my wife and I had at “It’s a charmed life” cottage. August 7-9, 2021. From the moment we stepped into this charming welcoming place, we felt at home. The coziest of the enclosed front porch, dining room, sitting room and the marvelous new kitchen and modern bath and showers were so inviting! The beds were comfortable and HVAC and window aircondition units worked well to keep us comfy the whole time we were there! We are looking forward to make this a semi annual event each time The NCC Choir comes to sing. Thanks for all the host instructions and help us as we communicated with you from start to finish. Worth every dime!

    Amazing cottage experience with nearby access to fun activities!

    Once again "It's a Charmed Life Cottage" did not disappoint. Joseph's charming cottage was just as charming. Arrival is super easy and you use a code to get in. The area is so magical and the neighbors are all so friendly and helpful. We saw more people this year than last year and that was nice to see more people out and about vacationing. Joseph's cottage itself is clean and perfect for our family. The ac unit downstairs kept us cool through the warm weather and the fans plus ac in the bedrooms kept us cool at night. He has EVERYTHING!! If you forgot it, he probably has it lol. He supplies so much and that is not expected so it is such a sweet and kind gesture on their part. That extra step makes the stay just that much more special and shows you that him and his wife are just so kindhearted. When we stay we always go to Hershey Park, this year we went for 4 days. It is only about a 20 minute ride. Staying at a place in Hershey is so over priced and staying in a hotel right outside of Hershey is cramped and you have no personal space. This is why we love staying in Mt. Gretna. We have our own bedrooms, our own kitchen, a living room, two bathrooms, and a tv PLUS laundry which is the best perk especially if you have kids. We also spend a day or two at the Mt. Gretna lake which is a 3 minute drive away so we get the best of both worlds, Hershey and lake days. We took walks to the near by playground, we played minature gold across the street, and went to eat at the JIgger Shop. I just cant say enough positive things about staying there. You can also spend a day driving the Amish Country or going to the outlets in Hershey. Also there is a ice cream shop and farm 'Patches' nearby. I recommend staying here to everyone because you can spend a whole week and still not have enough time to do everything. We will be back again next year and years to come for sure. Thank you Joseph and your family for the hospitality you show mine. =)

    Very pleasant getaway!

    This was a short getaway for our family to decompress after a difficult month. The cottage was equipped with everything we needed, and we loved being in such a gorgeous cottage. Would love to come back!

    Girls weekend

    We have stayed at Mt. Gretna once before and decided to go back because we enjoyed it so much. Very quiet, quaint little village with a lot of history. The outdoor theater was amazing and there are so many good places to eat. We can’t wait to go back.
