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.

Could not have asked for better!!

  • 5 of 5
The owners could not have been more gracious or welcoming. The property is fantastic with plenty of room to stretch out. We hiked, we biked, we swam, we BBQed...every night we rocked on the porch while the kids chased fireflies...it was the perfect vacation spot and if we ever go to that area again we wouldn't hesitate to stay here.

FAMILY VACATION 2014

  • 5 of 5
Our semi-annual Family Vacation was held here this year, and it was superb. All
conditions and amenities were 1st rate. Clean. Beautiful. Beautiful views. Much to
do in the area - even Baltimore Harbor was not too far away. But days spent on
the property and in the area were entertaining and restful. Return to quiet & simple
values and entertainment. But far from rustic, even though an historic 1840 property.
Also, I don't want to limit it to the above - there was plenty more to do and see in
the area that we did not get to. It is just that these were the things we looked forward
to doing, and which we pleasantly found there. And, the owners were so nice and
thoughtful, and concerned with our enjoyment. Can't say enough.
All in all, a great time was had by all, children and adults.

perfect family/friend vacation spot

  • 5 of 5
I agree with the other glowing reviews. The place is spotless, the farmhouse so comfortable that I felt like it was home after a day, the pool wonderful, the kitchen very user friendly, even for a LOT of cooking, plenty of room for everybody to spread out throughout the property, plenty of sports equipment to play with, a wonderful big field for baseball or anything else, and lots of privacy. There is a fire pit that we used a couple of nights, two grills, a wonderful front porch that we sat on in the morning on the rockers or porch swing to watch our 2 year old grandson run around. The pool is just wonderful-plenty big, beautifully landscaped, plenty of chairs, a table, and umbrellas. The grounds are expansive and would be really fun for older kids to explore. Our 30 year old daughter said that it was our best family vacation ever. Our other daughter and her husband have been here with friends and they also loved it. It is an easy, maybe 20 minute drive to Gettysburg, a 5-10 minute drive to East Berlin, where there is a grocery store and beer distributorship if needed, and also antique shops and pretty architecture-a nice afternoon visit.
We came last fall to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday, and we all loved it so much that we pretty much booked for this summer right after we came back. We range in age from 60 to 2, and everybody loved it. I couldn't recommend the place more. And Barbara checked in with us just to make sure that everything was going ok. Barbara and Forry are super nice folks and we really enjoyed renting from them. We will be back again!

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.
