Perfect for family getaways. Sleeps 12 with a bunk room for the kids! Only 10 miles from Hershey and a half hour to Lancaster County's Amish country.
Enjoy your family trip in a luxurious property in historic Mt Gretna - a family destination for over 125 years. After a day at HersheyPark, come in and unwind in your home-away-from-home. No need to go out every night - relax and enjoy a drink on the deck overlooking the woods or on the front porch in a rocking chair.

You can prepare a feast in the gourmet chef’s kitchen or vie for supremacy in pool, shuffleboard, poker, darts, foosball and air hockey in the huge game room.

WunderHaus is the ultimate luxury Mt Gretna vacation home with everything you need to accommodate your large group. It's a beautiful, professionally decorated five bedroom home with five and a half bathrooms. There’s also a blow-up queen size mattress and a pull-out sofa to allow your group to spread out and be comfortable.

A large front porch with six rocking chairs faces a mountain. In the back there is a deck with a gas grill and plenty of seating for outside dining and relaxing.

But the ultimate WunderHaus space is the large, fully-equipped game room. Your group will enjoy foosball, pool, darts, shuffleboard and air hockey while watching the game on the large TV. There is no other property in Mt Gretna with this much space to spread out and enjoy your guests.

You can walk to everything in Gretna including the Mt Gretna Lake & Beach (1/4 mile), the Jigger Shop (a 100 year old ice cream parlor), the playground and restaurants for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Stroll past the historic gingerbread homes and enjoy the variety of plays and musical events at the Mt Gretna Playhouse.

For bikers and runners there's an access to the Lebanon Valley Rail-Trail only a half-mile walk from the house. The trail is a 15 mile, crushed stone path through the woods that is gently sloped, making it perfect for pushing a stroller or for children riding their bikes.
Within a mile is the Mt Gretna Roller Rink and Miniature Golf. HersheyPark is a 25 minute drive and you're a half hour away from all the sites of Lancaster County and the Amish country.

Almost every weekend of the summer is special in Mt Gretna. There is an annual Tour of Homes, the Mt Gretna Art Show, the Cicada Music Festival, 5k road races and triathlons. The Timbers Restaurant & Dinner Theatre is one mile up the hill and it's famous as a location for high school reunions and rustic weddings.

There is a shopping plaza in Quentin (10 minute drive) with everything you may need including a grocery store, pharmacy, gas station, bank, beer and liquor stores and a variety of chain stores.
