Average Rating for this Community

We moved into Hershey's Mill with the help of Stacie nearly 3 years ago and absolutely love this community! Everyone is so friendly and welcoming and the amount of activities and amenities was a pleasant surprise. We moved from our too large home in Malvern into our much more manageable home in "the Mill" which we both agree has everything that we could ever need or want.


We and several of our friends have found lovely well maintained homes to fit our differing needs at reasonable prices. But the reason Hershey's Mill is 5 stars is the activities. 6 tournament grade pickleball courts, 5 tennis courts, ping pong, biking, golf, wood shop, model train club, library, etc and the people. Within our first months in "The Mill" we were involved in more activities and knew (not met) more people than we had in our old neighborhood where we lived for 20+ years. If Hershey's Mill had an admission committee, they would get 5 stars for welcoming, friendly, helpful admissions.


I will be moving into Hershey's mill in April my agent Stacie Karolyn has been so professional and helpful I'm looking forward to my new abode Stacie s mom lives here so I'm sure it's fantastic


Stacie sold me my condo almost 10 years ago. I love it here. It's a terrific location and absolutely beautiful. There's plenty of activities (social club and boomers,computer,photography,tennis,pickleball etc) and trips (Delaware Park, Phillies, Penn's Peak, St. Michaels) but most of all the people are friendly. It's easy living and I'm glad I'm here.


Good mix of newer and older homes. Close to stores and Starbucks! Community has everything you'd want.
