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.

Very impressed with the house and the amenities!!

  • 5 of 5

Seven of us spent 3 days at this beautiful house. We wish we could have stayed a couple more days. There were so many things for every one to do, whether outdoor or indoor. The amenities were impressive and really give you a sense of being at a fully equipped home. The pool was a really nice size pool, but we couldn't use it too much due to lots of rain. We were pleasantly surprised that we could use the provided HDMI cable to watch movies together at night. The neighborhood is beautiful and relaxing. There's a mall only a few minute drive away with a clean and well-stocked Wei's supermarket. We would definitely consider coming back again! Thank you Carole!

Amazing house!!

  • 5 of 5

Mark and Carole were spectacular hosts. All you need to bring is clothing and food! Easy process from start to finish and very responsive. House was immaculate and perfectly laid out for our group of three couples and three toddlers. Loved the huge yard, gazebo, grill and play area. Indoors we enjoyed the open layout and games (pool and ping pong). Quick drive to Hershey Park and craft breweries. We had a great time and are already talking about booking again when the pool is open!!

Friend-union Trip was a Success!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to stay with our good friends and their 3 children. A family friendly space for the 5 kids was a must and this place met that perfectly! The home was clean and well maintained. Enough space for 5 young kids and 4 adults to comfortably hang out in. It worked out great to have two dining spaces: the kids ate at the kitchen table and the adults ate at the dining room table and we could still keep an eye on them. Carole was very quick to answer all my questions. I only wish we had come later in the summer so we could have enjoyed the pool! We will keep this home in mind if we ever are traveling or staying in the area again. Thanks for a great stay!
