I have operated a business in Gettysburg for 25 years, and currently own the Barclay House (vacation rental), four shops and an ice cream parlor, and I am the co-owner of The Brickhouse Inn B&B.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 1994

I bought the house with the intention of living in downtown Gettysburg, but moved into The Barclay House instead.

The house witnessed the Battle of Gettysburg. It has many charming period features. It has an ideal location.

GREAT HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This house is kept immaculately clean and has been recently refurbished so the kitchen/bath and entire house seems brand new. The fact that it's a civil war era house makes it so much fun to be in Gettysburg for three days. Everything is in walking distance, just pull into the parking spots out back and you are conveniently located. Great restaurants, ice cream spots, historic markers, and people watching galore. Only time we got in the car was for the auto tour of the battlefield and to drive to the visitor center (which we could have walked but we were doing auto tour right afterwards). Beds comfortable, kitchen fully stocked with cooking items if you bring your own groceries. AC was awesome. Back bedroom was perfect for being away from the street noise. Sleeps 6 comfortably, one bath with a tub/shower and washing machine and dryer. Perfect place to stay. Would highly recommend. Owner was very nice and accommodating about check in and out times and we were able to contact him easily.

COMFORTABLE, CONVENIENT, RELAXING

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for three nights while visiting Gettysburg on our way to Philadelphia. The owner is super laid back and easy to deal with. He even called me before I rented to answer some questions. Upon arrival, the house was immaculate and the A/C was appropriately cool. We used both bedrooms and the parlor bed (which my teen loved because he could close the doors off to the rest of us). We also used the washer and dryer, the kitchen, and the DVD player and TV. Even though it was a bit on the cool side while we were visiting, the A/C worked great and would keep you cool even when it's really hot. The house was also conveniently located on a main street with access to everything in town and the battlefield, and within walking distance of ice cream and several restaurants. It was awesome to be able to spread out a bit before we traveled on to Philly and had to confine ourselves to a regular hotel room. Would definitely recommend.

This property was excellent in all the ways that count. Photos and descriptions were absolutely accurate. The location was perfect for us. The house appears to have been recently renovated. The kitchen was pristine and the whole place was CLEAN. I would recommend this home to anyone.

BEAUTIFUL HISTORICAL HOUSE!

  • 5 of 5
I rented this house for the weekend that my daughter was getting married in Gettysburg. It's a beautiful house with lots of charm and our stay there made our special weekend even more memorial. It became like homebase for the whole weekend and everyone loved it! Renting this house was one of the best decisions I made for the weekend. The property was very clean and well maintained. The owner was wonderful! .

LOVELY WEEKEND RENTAL IN GETTYSBURG

  • 5 of 5
This historic home was perfect for our long weekend in Gettysburg. It has recently been renovated, so while it LOOKS like the civil war era home that it is, it FEELS brand new. (Thankfully the bathroom and kitchen appliance are all modern!) We enjoyed running and walking by the civil war battlefield sites. So many restaurants and other shops in easy walking distance. Not sure why anyone would want to stay in a hotel when they visit Gettysburg. Staying in this home allowed us to get the real Gettysburg experience. This is a very friendly town to visit, we'll be back! The owner was very easy to work with and ensured that someone greeted us when we checked in to show us around.
