Holiday Rental House -
3 Bedrooms , 2 Bathrooms , Sleeps 20
Harrisburg, Pennsylvania
I'd describe it as originally a small 'Little House on the Prairie' country church. It was built before the Civil War.

It's been renovated for comfortable modern residential living. It's spacious, yet cozy and warm at the same time.

It's decorated in my own style and memorabilia, so please don't expect it to look like a Marriott Residence Inn :) The decor is sort of Elvis Presley style and retro. That's just what I personally enjoy, so hopefully you'd find it charming. (To be clear....this is my home, not a dedicated vacation rental; so all of my usual 'stuff' for day to day life is there)

It's clean of course and has all modern conveniences, including a top notch 65' TV, brand new theater sound system, and fully stocked bar....all of which you are more than welcome to enjoy. But...

Interaction with guests
I may or may not be able to greet you in person, depending on the time and your date of arrival. But I'd always be reachable by phone 24/7. You are welcome to arrive at any time after 3pm. You don't need me to be there when you arrive. I'll give you the codes to the locks ahead of time. So you can arrive whenever you like. The house/church is yours when you're there! All I ask is that you treat my home like you'd want yours treated.

Booking was cancelled 24 hours before arrival on Memorial Day weekend because it was double booked on another site. Absolutely pathetic, do not use under any circumstances.

It was very unfortunate that Tripadvisor allowed there to be a double-booking. I wish I had noticed it earlier. I did everything in my power to make things right, but my options as the host were quite limited.

About the neighbourhood
160 years ago when it was built as a small-town church this area was the country. Now it's the suburbs. It's fairly quiet in general. Three minutes from both I-81 and I-83. It's less than 5 minutes from the Farm Show Complex. About 25 minutes from Hershey and Hershey Park. Ten minutes from downtown Harrisburg. Half hour from Ski Roundtop. About 30 minutes from true 'Dutch Country'.
Getting around
Having a vehicle sure makes things easier! But Uber is certainly available.

How to get there
Airport: Harrisburg: 18.0 km
Railway: Amtrak: 10.0 km
It's pretty much a no-brainer with any type of GPS or online directions. You'll likely be coming from the highway, so it will be on the left. It's the white house right next to the cemetery. There's a pretty decent sized gravel parking lot.
