Mt. Gretna

Brownstone Real Estate Sponsors the Mt. Gretna Tour of Homes

Beautiful cottage home tucked among treesMany who live in our area know summer is synonymous with the Mt. Gretna Tour of Homes and Gardens. Once again, Brownstone Real Estate is the proud sponsor of this popular event. Held Saturday, August 1, 2015 from 10AM to 5PM, the self-guided walking tour offers an intriguing glimpse into the fabulous architectural styles that comprise Mt. Gretna’s beautiful homes and cottages.

Brownstone’s own Emi Snavely, acting as Chef du Tour, has selected nine homes and three historic buildings, in addition to the Mt. Gretna Inn, to include on this year’s tour. Each summer, Emi ensures attendees are treated to a captivating collection of homes that proudly reflect the tastes and enchanting home styles of Mt. Gretna.

A Home with an Observatory

In-home observatory with gleaming knotty pine paneling and large windowsHomes are loaded with unique features today, but sometimes it takes an older home with the character of bygone days to make an unusual statement. Take for example, this home located in the Mt. Gretna area. It’s loaded with all the charm you’d expect from the cottage and bungalow type houses that reflect the area’s quaint appeal. But what makes this property especially unique is a light-drenched observatory which soars above the roof. Yes, an observatory.

Summer is for Music in Mt Gretna

Amusic notes and the word music hanging on a wooden backdrops I put my pen to paper [so to speak], we are in the heart of the summer season at Gretna. August is without a doubt, the busiest month of activities at Mt Gretna. From the fabled Mt Gretna Art Show [the 40th this year], to the stage for theatre and music of all types, I don’t believe there is an evening when some type of performance is not available either at the Theatre, the Tabernacle, or the Timbers.
