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!
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!
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!
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.
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
I was racing in a triathlon in the area, and Anna was wonderful about letting me have my breakfast late (after the conclusion of the race in the morning and a shower back at the Red Umbrella) and also about checking out (so I could have a few minutes to relax after breakfast). Everything was top notch! Thanks again to Anna and Ray for a wonderful stay.
We enjoyed a girls weekend away at this wonderful B&B within a short distance of all the Hershey attractions. The Inn was impeccably decorated and very comfortable, the food was delicious, and the Innkeeper attentive and hospitable. I highly recommend the Red Umbrella for an enjoyable, relaxing time away from the busyness of life.
My wife and I were hoping for a quiet retreat from our normal stress. Our expectations were exceeded when we saw the quality of Red Umbrella. Unassuming in its presence on a country road, the Red Umbrella greets with cozy modern conveniences coupled with the turn of the century charms. A must mention is the classy steam shower in the large suite complete with radio, steam and multi-head shower. Couples if you don't get this room you're missing out.
We stayed at this cozy and beautiful B&B for one night with my family in January and experienced a wonderful stay. Tim, Anna, Marisa, Ben and Ray were the most gracious of hosts in this stately house that dates from the 1840s. The place was sparkling clean and had amenities and decorations that provided a charm of both the past and the present. The breakfast was scrumptious and generous. Outside the spacious grounds in the back provide an ideal area to stroll and relax, and take in the beauty of the property. Looking forward to coming back soon!
We were first timers to the bed and breakfast experience and didnt know what to expect, but the hospitality at the Red Umbrella made everything so comfortable and inviting! We arrived in the late afternoon and immediately felt cozy and at home. We enjoyed snacks, a glass of wine, and an exciting scrabble game while talking with Anna and her daughter Marissa. They also gave us great advice of places to go for dinner and what to do in the area. That night, we enjoyed a relaxing night with their very fancy and high tech private bathroom which has a 2 headed full body shower and a extra large bathtub and bath salts. The bathroom is even fully stocked with everything you could ever need! The next morning, we were served an amazing breakfast with muffins, fruit, yogurt, and baked french toast. We loved it so much we were trying to figure out a way to stay one more night! Everyone must stay at the red umbrella whenever you are in the area!
My husband and I stayed at the Red Umbrella last night and were absolutely amazed at how incredible and seriously perfect everything was! We were greeted by a sign with our names on it, which was just one of the many awesome details that Anna puts into her establishment! We had a wonderful relaxing time, and can't wait to go back! Breakfast was SO delicious, and we really enjoyed the conversation with Anna and Ray. We HIGHLY recommend the Red Umbrella!
We recently had the pleasure of staying at The Red Umbrella and it was one of the best getaway weekends I can remember! This bed and breakfast has it all... the charm of history, a central location, and every modern convenience you can imagine, including brand new private bathrooms in each suite! We stayed in the largest suite which had its own steam shower! The owners went out of their way to make us feel at home and were really informative about the area's attractions. This really was the "sweetest" find in the Hershey area! Looking forward to returning again next year! -The Reilly's, Cranford,NJ
