About Mark and Carole Watson

We are houseparents at Milton Hershey School and live with our elementary kids on campus most of the time. We love entertaining, so even though we won't be staying in our home when you are, we will be glad to try to make sure your stay is really pleasant!

Mark and Carole Watson purchased this house in 2013

Why Mark and Carole Watson chose Palmyra

We chose this property because of the big back yard for playing in. There is a 20 x 40 ft. in ground pool with a diving board to enjoy. There is a play set for younger kids and a sandbox :) We love sitting in the swing in the gazebo visiting with family and friends. There is a large deck and a lot of comfortable seating. The deck has afternoon shade and with the outdoor grill it is a fun place to share a meal.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy our home because if has a cozy family room with a gas fireplace. The downstairs area can easily have groups playing games or talking in different areas so everyone can do what they like. There is a ping pong table in the sun room and a pool table in the basement. So much to do! We like the 4 bedrooms so that there is plenty of sleeping space. We think it is an attractive place to come and relax.

nice house with swimming pool

The house is huge and easily accomodates 8-10 people. Has a nice backyard pool and utilities are orderly. Would definitely want to visit again if we get a chance.

awsome place

  • 5 of 5

we stayed here with my sons and daughter-in-laws and my grand children for a Halloween weekend at Hershey park. the house was perfect for us .. plenty of room very clean and well kept. the owners were super to us, they even went above and beyond when my grand daughter left her favorite blanket behind. Mark and Carole were so very kind to look for it and put it in the mail for us when they found it... we couldn't have asked for a better place to stay and nicer owners to deal with.

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is what I have. Let me know what you think:)

This home was perfect for our family vacation. It is central to Hershey Park, shopping, and restaurants. The pool is well landscaped and feels like a hidden retreat! My dad, brother, and husband enjoyed the pool table often. Even though we were able to spread out it was still comfortable enough to hang out in the same room. The home was also very cozy and spacious. Thank you Carole and Mark for sharing your wonderful home, many blessings to you!
