Why Andy Scholl chose Mount Gretna Heights
The cottage was built around 1910 and bought by our parents in the 50s. My 6 siblings and I inherited from them. It is one of many historical cottages in the area where you will find the area to be laid back, relaxing and lots of friendly people.

Cute cottage in Campmeeting
The cottage brought back fond memories of my grandfather's creek bungalow. I loved the original woodwork and side porch. It got a bit warm but the window units and fans helped. It is convenient to Mt Gretna and parking was easy. We were able to bring our greyhound which was "greyt"!
Mt Gretna Jewel in the woods
This was a great property and perfect location to both Lancaster & Hershey. Right in the village of all the cottages and perfect 4 bedroom that accommodated our group. Remember this isn’t luxury resort and great cottage in the woods. We were able to use shuffleboard sticks and few of the board games. Cottage was clean and well laid out with a pottery barn styled wrap around porch could sit there all day. Thank you for renting this was a great memory for the kids. Jigger Shop ice cream parlour is a must ! MT. gretna theater seen Diamonds, miniature golf , fresh sticky buns on the porch, swimming in lake, played tennis, great coffee house in the morning can walk too!
Thank you so much for the kind words. We are very happy your family enjoyed their stay.

Relaxing Mt Gretna house
We rent a house too so we understand expectations and this house did exactly what it said on the tin - it was relaxing, had all the amenities it said and provided a happy space for us to enjoy.
Cute place in CampMeeting
Adorable cottage in CampMeeting but in need of a deep clean. Make sure to bring your own bed linens and towels. Wonderful location and responsive hosts.
Only take this if nothing else is available
Cottage is liveable with windows open and fans running. No a/c in 3 of 4 bedrooms and when you close windows for a/c (and when it has been closed up for a while) the mildew smell is overwhelming. Also furniture needs to be cleaned! Upholstery is filthy and surfaces not kept clean (Like cobwebs on the bedside table). You don't need white gloves to check this place, you can see it!
With some work and some love, this could be a stellar property....hope they find a buyer who will take care of it!!
Charming community, convenient location, but property is poorly maintained and minimally cleaned
Camp Meeting Grounds is a charming and welcoming community. The cottage was the only listing available in the community, and when we arrived, I understood why. The cottage is poorly maintained. The furniture is all very dated and dirty. The bedding and pillows were stained and worn. We removed the bedding and chose to use our own sheets, pillows and blankets and discovered that mattresses were also stained. There was a mildew covered blanket on the bed in the third floor bedroom. That blanket could not have been washed between guests or even on a regular basis. There was also food stuck to the ceiling in that same room. There were numerous items left in rooms from previous guests (sheets on the floor, shoes in the closet, shorts and hair ties). The rooms were all dusty. My husband had to remove a huge spider web from the closet in our bedroom. The kitchen also needed to be cleaned. There was still water in the teapot, so it obviously was not checked or cleaned between guests.
On a positive note, the owners did allow us to check in early, which was a blessing considering it took two hours to clean the cottage enough for us to be comfortable staying there. I did contact the owners about the cleanliness issues, no additional cleaning was offered. She informed me that she had cleaned the cottage herself and was surprised that we considered it dirty. I would strongly suggest that the owners invest in a cleaning service if this is indeed their standard of cleanliness for the property. Guests deserve better. I concur with other reviewers, the mattresses are ridiculously poor in quality. some were like sleeping on a board and others had no support at all. The lack of air conditioning can also be an issue. It was very hot and humid during our stay and the provided fans did very little to make the temperature in the rooms comfortable. I also agree with previous reviews, there is definitely a strong mildew smell throughout the cottage. Between the mildew and the dust, several of us had issues with coughing and irritated throats during our stay. The whole cottage needs a thorough cleaning. As compensation, for the cleanliness issues, the owners did grant our request for a late checkout so we could have a little time to enjoy the community before we left.
This property is in a very convenient location within the community and could be quite charming if it was properly cleaned and maintained. We will return to the community, but not this cottage.
You must provide your own towels and bed sheets. After notification of booking we will send combination to lockbox for the key to enter the cottage via email or mail about a week before your rental. Which ever is preferred. Also check in time is 3:00 p.m. Check out time is 12:00 p.m.
