From the amenities on-site to the activities happening locally, there are a few things to consider when planning your trip. Let's roll through a few things to keep in mind so that your perfect stay happens at the perfect time.

The Ideal Time of Year

What you're looking for from your vacation experience is highly dependent on what time of year you choose. Each season presents its own wealth of outdoor beauty and opportunity, and depending on your preference, we have what you need for whatever time of year suits you.

No matter what season you decide to take your getaway, with all the seasonal events, to outdoor activities options, there is something for everyone making sure your trip to Buttonwood is one for the memory books!

Calendar of Events

Throughout the year, the calendar is full of entertaining events. Whether spring, summer, or fall, there will always be something exciting happening. If the summer season is the time for you, then you are in luck, with the Country Memories Day at the end of May. If fall is more your vibe, then fully embrace the joys of autumn with Harvestfest and Reeds Gap Fall Festival. And don't forget, Buttonwood has a full Calendar of Events to keep your family happily occupied every week of the season!

Local Attractions

Day trips can be the best part of a getaway, and there are no shortage of these with adventures beckoning for you to discover. One of the best and most highly recommended would have to be a trip to Gettysburg-- a history so deeply rooted that you can feel it as you explore the memorials and welcoming shops in town. If your vacation timeline allows, driving through the battlefield deserves a full day to explore the historic lands sure to leave you in reverence. 

--Should you find yourself visiting in the fall, the excitement and camaraderie of football at one of the many Penn State home games is an experience you should not miss. There isn't much that matches the thrill, intensity and pure fun of a packed Beaver Stadium on a Saturday afternoon.

--Who doesn’t like chocolate? A trip to Central Pennsylvania would not complete without a visit to the Hershey Chocolate World. Chocolate and vacation go hand-in-hand and bring a smile to everyone's face!

--Don't forget about Knoebels Amusement Park and Resort, which isn't just fun for the kiddos-- the whole family will love this destination. From roller coasters to arcades, America's largest free-admission amusement park will be a highlight on your vacation calendar!


The possibilities are endless when it comes to planning your perfect Buttonwood getaway. With so many reasons to stay, the only difficulty will be in deciding what amazing adventures to take your family on while you're here. Hope to see you soon!
