Location: 4515 Hill Church Road, Annville
Drive time: 90 minutes.
Amenities: Of the five individually themed guestrooms, the most spacious is the English Suite, with its three-sided fireplace, Jacuzzi, private porch and skylight facing the Big Dipper. Most fun is the Secret Room, with its mystery-movie-like hidden entrance. Innkeeper Rosalie George serves a full breakfast in the candlelit dining room, and keeps beverages and homemade treats available all day.
The scoop: More than your typical B&B, this private-residence-turned-posh-mini-resort is a surprisingly sumptuous Shangri-La 6 miles east of Hershey. Situated on three very private acres, it’s surrounded by preserved farmland and the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Don’t miss: Take in the stars through the telescope in the Garden Room. Watch a movie on the 64-inch high-definition screen in a home theater with stadium seating and popcorn. Enjoy some live music at Annville’s restored Art Deco Allen Theatre and MJ’s Coffeehouse.
