PERFECT LOCATION: HISTORIC DOWNTOWN GUESTHOUSE

Gettysburg House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 8

NO ORDINARY ADDRESS

Built in the 1840's and newly renovated, this 2-level, 4-bedroom Italianate-style townhome apartment reflects the Federal majesty of the mid-1800's, and the individualistic expressions of post-Civil war Gettysburg. Street-facing windows on the main level are accentuated with stained glass, creating a feel-good rainbow effect in the common area parlor and dining room.

Bedrooms on the first and second level pay tribute to the owners' family heritage. Take your pick from the Charles, Chastang, Earley or Hughes bedrooms. Like the people whose names they bear, each room has its own personality and ambiance.

A major upgrade is the amazing chandelier-adorned spa bath that lets you know this is no ordinary Gettysburg address... This is The LaVerne Guesthouse.

Located one-half block from Lincoln Square and three doors down from the historic Wills House, The LaVerne is within walking distance to dining, antiquing, shopping, and the theater. This guesthouse is appointed with all the basics you need to feel at home, including kitchenware, towels, linens and paper products.

The property will be cleaned and ready for your arrival; however, there is no daily housekeeping service. Therefore, we respectfully request that you maintain the home in a neat and orderly fashion, wash any dishes used in the kitchen and spot clean when necessary.

This is our second home in Gettysburg. We welcome only guests who are willing to respect our property as if it is their own. This is why we will rent only to families or couples. Please do not inquire if you intend to use our home as a “party pad.” We have a property manager who will respond immediately if you ever need assistance during your stay.

LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION

Your stay at The LaVerne Guesthouse puts you in the heart of everything Gettysburg is known for. Whether it's sightseeing, nightlife, performing or cultural arts, cinema, vintage or contemporary shopping, fine dining or artsy coffee houses...You can walk there from here!

Leave your car in your private parking space and take a walking tour of the pre and post-Civil War era architectural styles in the Gettysburg Historic District. And don't forget to check the schedule for nightly performances or frequent art shows right in the neighborhood. Or, catch the free trolley for a short ride to the battlefields and visit the Civil War Museum.

If you do decide to take a drive, visit the nearby Gettysburg Outlet Stores...or tour one of the close-by wineries. Whatever your itinerary, your stay will be in the perfect location. The LaVerne Guesthouse... a home of historic distinction.

WILL COME BACK...

  • 5 of 5
Stayed with a group of 10 (4 adults, 5 kids) and had plenty of room, hot water and a great time! When we had questions/needs, the owner was super responsive and very friendly! Perfect location and easy walks to my favorite "burg"! I've stayed just about everywhere in the vicinity and I'll be coming back to the LaVerne House!

AMAZING, COZY COTTAGE IN DOWNTOWN GETTYSBURG

  • 5 of 5
First off the cottage was clean, the kitchen was stocked with plates, cups, cookware, etc. The bathrooms were very clean and well maintained. The master bathroom was recently renovated and is exceptional. The kitchen has also recently been updated with new counters, cabinets, and appliances. The owner was very friendly and provided a list a things to do and local places as well as stocked the house with books, games, and the like.

The places looks rather small on the outside but it has 5 bedrooms and will comfortably fit and sleep a large group. It is located steps from downtown with walking access to restaurants, bars and attractions. It is short drive to Liberty Mountain for skiing and an even shorter drive to the Gettysburg battlefields (highly recommended).

The nightly rate was extremely reasonable and I will definitely be staying again and will always recommend this place to friends.
