“Complete Perfection!”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

Just can't say enough about this gem! We had unexpected traffic issues that brought us to the red umbrella. Anna was more than accommodating to our spur of the moment arrival. We instantly felt right at home. It could not have been more perfect! From the personalized welcome sign to the
wine to the Hershey kisses and note left on our bed. Very warm and inviting in every way. Tastefully decorated with all the special touches to make u feel at home. We especailly enjoyed the luxurious sheets!!! Top notch establishment that makes any 5 star hotel pale in comparison. Hats off to Anna & Tim for a job well done!

My husband and I spent our anniversary at this wonderfully, quaint, charming bed and breakfast. This was very relaxing. It was like a home away from home. The decor was warm and inviting. The breakfast was delicious. We absolutely loved the bubble tub!! Sitting on the patio in the evening surrounded by the lighting was very romantic. We will definitely be back!!

Room Tip: Ask for the large room; you won't be disappointed!!

My husband and I stayed here with 2 friends to celebrate my birthday. We took some appetizers and libations and sat in one of the 3 outdoor areas for our picnic lunch and invited Anna, the innkeeper and her daughter, Marissa to join us - they were both so friendly and accommodating - what a refreshing mother/daughter team. The entire B&B is very tastefully decorated. We had the queen bed room which is a nice size and its bathroom is absolutely state-of-the-art - like none I've seen in my travels. We went to a local restaurant for dinner and when we got home sat in another outdoor area with lights strung around it - it made for a magical night. There's a "help yourself" Keurig coffee machine set up in the dining room. Breakfast the next morning started with fresh fruit salad, gourmet muffins from a local bakery, eggs served in individual (antique) colored glass chicken dishes and bacon. If you somehow managed to save room, there were chocolate covered strawberries to finish off the breakfast. We will be spreading the word about this jewel of a B&B and wish Anna, Tim and Marissa the best of luck with their endeavor.

I had a wonderful experience with Innkeeper Anna... on a recent business trip I couldn't get into a nearby hotel and decided to check out a BnB...indeed a treasure. This BnB is a great combination of country aesthetic and modern technology surrounded with welcoming and personal service ... I stayed for 2 nights and wanted to stay longer... certainly a return destination

You sometimes come across a place or people that are just that spectacular that they etch a lasting memory. Anna, Ray, and the Red Umbrella B&B each fit that mold. From our arrival on Friday afternoon until our checkout after breakfast the following morning, we felt not at home, but better.

The home itself is beautiful, especially when you see the pre-restoration pictures (carefully displayed in a flipbook in the den). The common area is lavishly painted, furnished, and kept without being overly brazen. Upstairs, our room (the suite) followed suit, with a bed that only rivaled our hosts in terms of comfort. We also had a bubble-jet tub and an electronic steam/shower that only added to the relaxation.

In terms of location, the Red Umbrella is very near Hershey Park and Hollywood Casino (if that's your cup of tea), but we went to dinner & a movie at one of the best theaters in the US (Annville Theater), which was a mere 15 minute drive.

The following morning our hosts were awake and prepared whatever breakfast we liked, and the food was great but the company was even better. They sat down and ate breakfast with us, and we were delighted to have their company.

It's amazing that we stumbled across this B&B thanks to Groupon, but we know we'll joyously frolic in our return at the next point we need to get away from it all.

Room Tip: Anna will give you the best room!

I just spent 2 fun filled nights and days with an old friend of 30 years at the RED UMBRELLA! Everything about our stay was just perfect!...from the welcome with our names on an old fashion chalkboard at arrival to breakfast on our last day which included baked oatmeal with berries, fresh fruit with yogurt & a great cup of coffee!!!! We enjoyed superb meals at local restaurants, 2 fun nights at the Hollywood Casino (which is only a mile away), shopping at the hershey outlets, some antiquing, a few local spa services, good conversation & laughter with the Inn Keepers, great wine and plenty of R&R. We felt so rested and ready to get back to our busy lives after this weekend retreat! It is a new B&B that is sure to catch on fast and fill quickly because of the attention to detail and warm hospitality.

Room Tip: all 3 rooms are great!
