Memorable Romantic Getaway

4.8 on November 13, 2017

This house and grounds are very well kept, inviting and warm, but also elegant and luxurious. Tim and Anna put such obvious care into every part of their hospitality! Our room was gorgeous and very comfortable, the breakfast was amazing, and Tim and Anna were so delightful to chat with! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed this romantic getaway!

Feels Like Home

The Red Umbrella B & B is a great place to stay when in the Hershey area. Our room was pretty, our beds comfortable, and our hosts Tim and Anna were gracious and warm. Tim and Anna served us an amazing breakfast. The house is a beautifully restored home nearly 200 years old. Tim and Anna treated us like family and we had the run of the house during our stay. The house is located in a beautiful pastoral setting, yet is close to all attractions in Hershey. By the time you leave, you will feel as if you're leaving old friends and can't wait for your next visit home.

On our way to Florida, we found this wonderful spot for a quick stopover. The accommodations were terrific, but the highlight was the personalities of Anna and Tim: wonderful folks who make you feel like long lost friends (I wish we lived close enough so that we could be!). Both Anna and Tim slaved in the kitchen to make a remarkable breakfast, while providing us with many stories and laughs as a "side dish." We liked this B&B so much, that we make it a point to stop again on our way north. Thanks Anna and Tim for such a wonderful experience.

We just came back from the Red Umbrella. We were very happy with our room, the service and breakfast was delicious. We would love to return one day. Very close to Hershey and other attractions. Beautiful bathroom! Individual air conditioning which was a blessing in this heat wave. Warm and friendly hosts. Thanks Anna and Tim!

"Elegance" above Hershey

Combine the quaintness of an 1845 brick house with the amenities of the 21st. century and this becomes the winning combination called the RED UMBRELLA Bed & Breakfast in Grantville, PA. During our stay, my wife and I had the most pleasant experience. Our room was spacious and well-appointed with antiques, as well as individual room air-conditioning. We booked the largest room because of its master bath amenities. First, you had the use of two person, whirlpool jet bath which in and of itself would have been enough luxury. Added to that was a touch screen, computerized, two person shower giving you the options for internet radio or line-in personal music from your own device, multi-jetted shower heads, lighting and /or conversion to a steam shower. The breakfast menu and time was decided by us the night before. Our hostess, Anna and husband, Tim, prepared French toast with bacon accompanied by a fresh fruit serving and Anna's homemade bananas Foster syrup. It was extraordinary and since she gave us her syrup recipe we will probably not have regular syrup ever again! We had full use of a well-stocked refrigerator on the main floor, as well as the remote controlled, propane fireplace in the living room. The entire house was tastefully detailed to match its heritage. The outdoor space was comfortably arranged with brick and stone walkways and patios leading to a barbeque area or a gazebo. We would go back there anytime that our travels take us near. Carol & Jerry K.

A great place to stay...newly renovated, it has the old world charm with all the modern amenities. The rooms are beautiful. The hostess is amazing. This is a place we will go to again. A top rated experience!

O my -the bathroom is fabulous!

We stayed in the large room. The furnishings were nice and the bed was comfortable, but the big attraction was the bathroom! It was recently redone and had both a large bubble tub and a large 2 headed (with 4 jets on each side)computerized shower that also played music and could give a steam bath! It was awesome. Breakfast was excellent and cooked to order. A new patio was completed the day we arrived. The innkeepers were friendly and helpful. Location is good for those interested in either the Hershey attractions or the racetrack. It is quiet and peaceful there.

A great getaway!

I took my husband to the Red Umbrella to celebrate his birthday. It was the perfect getaway. We enjoyed the inn and had some fun at the casino. I would highly recommend this inn.

What a wonderful find... traveling on business and usually stay in a hotel but needed to find other accommodations in Grantville... Innkeeper Anna turned my business trip into a mini-vacation... leaving with a definite expectation for a return with my spouse... the country aesthetic is tastefully supported with high tech amenities... what fun
