1840 PA FARMHOUSE/COTTAGE ON 83 ACRES W/ INGROUND POOL

Gettysburg Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse and Cottage - 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed - 2.5 Baths - (Sleeps 10-12

We invite you to stay in our comfortably and tastefully decorated 1840 four-bedroom farmhouse and cozy country cottage with fireplace and loft nestled in the middle of 83 acres of rolling Pennsylvania countryside. The Pennsylvania farmhouse is a simple log frame structure with white German siding with two front doors, typical architecture for the mid-1800's. The cottage has a large central stone fireplace (currently not functional) and was used as a smokehouse and summer kitchen in the late 19th & early 20th centuries.

Situated in beautiful Adams County, we are located approximately three miles from the historic colonial town of East Berlin, PA (population: 1,400), founded by Pennsylvania Germans in 1764 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.

Property Description and Location: The property has a beautiful in-ground pool, Pennsylvania bank barn, 3-car garage, lovely views, and privacy and is an excellent base for relaxation and exploration of nearby Gettysburg, Lancaster's PA Dutch Country, Hershey, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Washington DC, and New York. World-wide travelers will find many French and European touches. We also have lots of original art and handmade pottery in both the farmhouse and cottage.

Historical: Our farmhouse has two plaques indicating registration as a Civil War building (having been built prior to the Civil War of 1863) and has received recognition from Historic Gettysburg-Adams County, Inc. as a home restored to its original 1840's era.

Sleeping Accomodations: The rental of this property includes both the Farmhouse and the Cottage:

Farmhouse (sleeps up to 8): There are four bedrooms on the second floor of the farmhouse: three with a double bed and one with two single beds. All are furnished with antique dressers, desks, and lovely bed linens.

Cottage (sleeps 2-4): There is one loft-style bedroom with double bed on the second floor and a comfortable pull-out double sofa bed in the living room.

In addition, we also have a Writer's Studio with two single beds, which can be used, if needed, at a cost of $75/night.

AWESOME VACATION

  • 5 of 5
What a great place to spend a relaxing vacation. Seclusion from the hustle and bustle of the city and close enough that you can take awesome day trips. We went to D.C for two days, Monticello for a day, White river rafting at Harper's Ferry and a baseball game in Baltimore. All destinations were within 2 hours or so. And of course Gettysburg is only 15 minutes away. Barbara was awesome and contacted us several times to make sure all was well and gave us some local knowledge. The farm itself is unbelievable. The decor is very welcoming and you feel like you are back in the day. The pool is one of the best I have swam in, and I live in Arizona. We had 8 of us and there was more than a enough room for everyone. Thank you Barbara for making our small family reunion an enjoyable time. We will be back.

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
We stayed three nights for Gettysburg College graduation weekend with a party of nine, a group that could have expanded or contracted at any point. We love the idea of having a house full of friends and family versus all of us behind a myriad of hotel doors on a meal schedule and not really able to relax with each other in the down time.

The house and adjacent cottage worked incredibly well for our family, godparents and friends. The owners are very straightforward about expectations and how-to's and the property is immaculate and very welcoming for all ages. Our only regret is not being able to stay longer to really enjoy the property itself, as it was spectacular in this late spring season and has obviously created great memories for a number of visitors, as well as for the owners and their family.

PERFECT WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
If you rent this farm house, and/or the cottage, you will be overjoyed! The description and photos do not come close to showing the magnificence of this place.
There were fifteen people in our family group, ranging from 2 years old to 75 years old, including several teenagers, and nobody was bored for a minute. The place is very safe, so we were able to let the older kids pretty much go where ever they wanted, and let the younger kids have latitude (and we are a safety crazy family).
The house maintained the complete essence of being a 1840s farm house, with amenities which are all up to date and functioning perfectly. Everything is CLEAN, and extremely well maintained. They are plenty of electrical outlets, air-conditioners, kitchen appliances, tables, chairs, utensils….etc. We were able to prepare a complete pot-roast dinner, and two full breakfasts for 15 people in the kitchen.
There are flat screen TVs with Dish network, but there was so much to do (bicycles, sporting equipment, and the grounds on which to play…) they were not turned on for more than a few minutes.
The owners communicated all the conditions, and delivered on everything, as they stated. The owners made sure we were comfortable and having a great time.
I am very confident in saying that this was one of the best places we have ever stayed.

HOSPITALITY A+, LOCATION A+, RELAXATION A+

  • 5 of 5
There is not enough room in this review box to tell you all the wonderful things about our stay in this wonderful farmhouse and the hospitality of its wonderful owners. If you are looking for a relaxing family vacation with downtown Gettysburg close by, look no more, this is it!! Eleven reenactors from Florida planned our stay for July 2013 to coincide with the 150th Anniversary of the battles at Gettysburg. Staying in a home that stood during the battles, just seemed perfect...and it was! We were in the perfect location just minutes away from downtown Gettysburg, downtown East Berlin, and Hanover. After our first day at the farmhouse, it felt like home, and we started calling it that! We found the pool exceptionally inviting and refreshing after spending the day in our period clothing at the reenactment. The entire house including the bedrooms are tastefully decorated in keeping with the 1840s theme of the farmhouse. There is plenty of room to spread out, even with eleven of us. The landscape at the farm is beautiful and some chose to sneak out to the porch swing to have their morning coffee. I could also see some local fireworks from the back lawn on July 4. But this is just a house...what makes it a home is its wonderful owners. The owners take a lot of pride in their farmhouse, and love to have others experience it. They are great communicators before, during, and after your stay, and will go above and beyond to make your stay stress free. They will help you with everything and anything that you need, including telling you about their favorite local restaurants, one of which turned out to be the perfect little Italian place in downtown East Berlin. Again, I could go on and on about our stay at the Anthony Farm. Even the locals that found out we were staying there, were envious. Our stay at the Anthony Farm further highlighted our attendance at the 150th Anniversary of the battles at Gettysburg, and has definitely become one for our personal history book, and we look forward to future visits.

NORMAN ROCKWELL COULD NOT HAVE CONCEIVED OF A BETTER CHRISTMAS SETTING

  • 5 of 5
The farmhouse and the cottage are something out of a Norman Rockwell painting. They are authentic Americana. They both have all of the modern amenities, such as flat screen TVs and state of the art kitchen appliances, but they have a real, historic charm to them. The floors are beaufitul, dark hardwood. The rooms are all tastefully decorated and cheerful.

The accomodations were scrupulously clean. All of the dishes, pots, pans and utensils in the kitchen were spotless, as were all of the floors and countertops. The linens and towels were all fresh and clean.

We stayed there for four nights over Christmas. We were two families, with four children ranging in age from 15 to 7. There was plenty of room for all of us, and everyone had a great time. If you are a party of this size, we definitely recommend that you rent the cottage along with the farmhouse. It gives you quite a lot of extra space. The cottage, a converted old smokehouse, is fantastic. Perhaps the best part of the estate.

In addition, the owners are caring and super responsive. The communication was great, and they even called us to during our stay to check in to make sure everythig was okay. They even left a nice, welcome basket of local treats (Snyders of Hanover pretzels, UTZ potato chips and York Peppermint patties.

The estate is appromately a half hour drive from the Gettysburg battlefield.

We highly recommmend it and are sure we will back to try it out in a different season.

PERFECT SUMMER HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We planned a last minute weekend trip to this farmhouse and Barbara was so accomodating despite the short notice and planning. It was a pleasure to rent from her. The house, cottage, and grounds had beautiful detail and were well cared for. I was impressed not to find dust or see bugs in the house despite the rural location. The home and cottage were cozy. The pool was amazing - beautiful lush shrubbery with blooming yellow flowers which coordinated with the pool furniture located on a raised platform with yellow umbrellas.The pool was completely fenced which was important to us with little kids around. There was a lot of yard space for the kids to run around with the fireflies while we barbequed and ate on the picnic tables. The garage was stocked with outdoor games and bicycles. I wish we had more time.
