Rent's usually a bit higher than that in Harrisburg area especially with a yard, off-street parking, and 2 br. That budget might not support a true country setting unless you are way out of town, like Halifax or Pine Grove. Lot sizes tend to be smaller than in western and central NY - there is no way the no-overnight-parking laws common in NY villages and cities would work around Harrisburg. Linglestown, Lawnton, Rutherford, maybe Penbrook might be worth looking into for places that might not be too noisy and might have off street parking for not within but maybe closer to that budget than elsewhere.

Halifax is pretty far out there if the OP wants to be close to Colonial Park.

as long as I am at least an hour from colonial park area I am fine, if it means that we will have spacious, calm and quiet, and not so many neighbors than so be it. The more I am researching the more I am finding out this way there is pretty much just aparment complexes and town homes. I am really just looking to rent from a landlord on a private lot, not be in an apartment building with neighbors above or below me. Been there done that and just don't like it. Does anyone have an idea where to look for private landlords that are renting out houses or apartment? All I see is aprtmentfinder.com, pennlive, forrent.com, mynewplace.com, isn't there any other place to look that people post classifieds for places to rent? We here have what is called a Pennysaver and people post ads and there is just a spot for renters to look at ads? it just seems like there is no paper that has this.

Kapp Advertising - Merchandiser - Lebanon, Hanover, Reading is a free weekly newspaper with several editions.

Home | news.thesunontheweb.com | The Sun and Press and Journal and the Paxton Herald HOME are paid circulation weekly newspapers in the area. Further out but within an hour are http://www.sentinelnow.com/ and (this a daily) http://www.cumberlink.com/ might also be worth checking out.

But as I indicated before there simply is a different housing type mix in this area compared to western and central NY especially in your target area and price point.
