If minutes to downtown Harrisburg with lots of private space is what you need, look no further! The 2nd flr with 1 or 2 bdrms and full bath plus the first flr living rm is all yours! For the weary traveler that needs a quick place to stay for the night, home is just 1 mi off I-83. So convenient!

Great location that's just 20 mins to Hershey or Carlisle, 40 mins to Gettysburg and 15 mins to airport. Located in a quiet, friendly and super-safe neighborhood with plenty of nearby restaurants.

The space

The living room and the entire second floor are private for your use with a dedicated guest-only entrance (front door). The second floor is guest-only with two bedrooms and a private bath. One bedroom is available for 1-2 guests, both bedrooms are available for 2-4 guests.

The first bedroom (10x14) has a queen bed, super soft micro-fiber sheets, plenty of pillows and a small work space. The bedroom has a remote-controlled ceiling fan, flat screen smart TV with HBO and Showtime (and Netflix if you have an account), a mini-fridge with drinks, in-room K-cup coffee maker with coffee & tea, snack assortment and even instant oatmeal if you want to have something quick before you head out. The bedroom is equipped with an iron and ironing board and a small fan for those that like 'white noise' to sleep (all located in the bedroom closet).

The second bedroom (10x12) is super comfy with a queen bed with super soft sheets, 2" memory foam mattress cover and plenty of pillows. In-room snack assortment is provided and room has a ceiling fan for a cool and pleasant night's sleep. Please note that there is no TV, coffee maker or mini-fridge in this room.

Your private bathroom, which is also located on the second floor (outside of the bedrooms - not en suite), will surely have anything you might need or have forgotten. It's stocked with shampoo, conditioner, body wash, razors, shaving cream, hair dryer (and more!) along with plenty of fresh, clean, soft towels and washcloths.

On the first/main floor you will find your guest-only living room with plenty of seating on the large sectional sofa to sit back, relax and watch TV. Again, premium channels include HBO and Showtime (and Netflix if you have an account).

The "shared" dining room (which I actually never use when I have guests, but I do like to open the curtains each day) now includes a small cooking station with microwave, toaster/convection oven, plates and utensils.

Please note: I only rent the space(s) to one guest or group at a time. You would never be sharing any of the space with strangers... only others in your group.

The kitchen, family room and master bedroom (which are all located on the first floor in the back part of the house) are for homeowner use only. (If you book a longer stay and require kitchen use, please let me know when booking and I'm sure I can accommodate that).

Long term rental is possible. Please message me to discuss if you are in need of this option.

Guest access

The whole second floor is private and for your use. The second bedroom is only to be used if 2 or more guests book and require separate sleeping accommodations. The living room is for your private use as well. Dining room is a shared space, if needed.

Interaction with guests

I'm always available 24/7. If I am home when a guest arrives, I do like to meet guests and introduce myself, but after that I completely respect the guest's privacy and do not enter the guest's private space (living room and second floor) until after departure. I love interacting with my guests, but I prefer to leave that up to you!

Other things to note

I do have two small, non-shedding dogs and I make sure that they respect you and your space. They are never permitted in the living room or on the second floor, even when the space is vacant.

Guest(s) can feel free to park in the driveway. If 2 or more guests are booked and will be arriving in more than one vehicle, please let me know in advance of your arrival so we can coordinate the parking arrangements. Please note that the local township does not permit parking across the street from my home at any time.

If you book for 2 guests it's assumed that you will be sharing one bedroom. If your guest requires separate sleeping accommodations, just let me know in advance so that I can prepare the second bedroom. Thanks!

I have stayed at Judi's several times already, and as always, everything was great!

Judi has a super comfortable all inclusive stay for anyone who enjoys Comcast cable TV, fully stocked mini bar of drinks and snacks, great wifi, clean plush towels and bedding, and one of the few places that has a full length mirror. Judi is super nice and organized. I recommend her place.

The photos on the site are accurate. I had basically forgotten about them when I arrived so I was very nicely surprised when I arrived. The front of the house is for guest use which includes a lovely living room and dining area with toaster oven and mircrowave. I didn't recall there were two bedrooms, which are upstairs and they are just picture perfect. Right down to fluffy white bathrobes like some 4 start hotel resort. The decor is so tasteful and Judi's attention to detail is outstanding. Pretty much if you forgot anything she has it there for you from contact lens solution to a fresh razor, toothbrush, qtips, floss and more. There was a significant array of snacks as well which surprised me because I could see that getting costly to a host if someone can't say no to a basket of chocolate! I was doubly impressed by her shower accessories with a dispenser for soap, shampoo and conditioner! Wow. She really went all out in making this place a great airbnb. Kudos. It really is as pretty as in the photos!! This is a quiet neighborhood and while I didn't need most of what's offered at her place, I found it very generous. Would definitely stay here again! (minus the dogs -which I heard but did not see - barking non stop for the first 6, or 7 minutes of my arrival and then only once in a while after that until bedtime, this place was perfection) Wish I could post my own photos to show they really live up to the hosts photos. Nicest place I've stayed in so far! Even beats many hotels hands down.

Thank you AnneMarie for all of the kind words and I am so happy that you enjoyed your brief stay! Also, thank you for the comments about the dogs. I will definitely make sure they are super quiet when guests arrive and also during their stay. I definitely don't want guests disturbed by my little buddies and I am so sorry if they disturbed you at all. Please feel free to stay again if you ever find yourself back in the area! Thanks again!

Judi was all we could ask for: responsive before and during our stay; and respectful of our needs and privacy. Also helpful, as this was our first Air BNB stay! The house was in a quiet residential district; easy to get to; and close to: stores, restaurants, and a gym. Also the space was clean; obviously cared for; and well stocked. I will definitely stay there again!

Hi I'm Judi! I live in a great neighborhood and really enjoy sharing the extra space in my home with the AirBnB community! I enjoy meeting new and interesting people and love helping people feel like they're staying in a home away from home.

As you can probably tell from the photos of my home... I love color! I like each room of my home to have a different feel...and that starts with a unique color! I work in accounting full time and can occasionally be found working from home. In my spare time I really enjoy making specialty cakes. Everyone is happy when they get a cake!

I've traveled to England, Germany, The Netherlands, Switzerland, France and sailed the USVI/BVI, just to name a few. My next trip is in the Spring of 2018 to Italy... I've always wanted to see the Sistine Chapel, so I'm super excited for that trip.

Of course I love spending time with my 2 granddaughters and my 4 children... when they have time for me! Haha! I also have a lot of family nearby, since I was raised in the area.

I hope you enjoy your stay and welcome to my home!
