Keywords: Large, fully restored 1860s home near Gettysburg and Liberty ski resort withguest cottage for up to 7 people in back.
Dana Wilkie lives in the D.C. area and is an editor and journalist.
We looked at dozens of homes near ski resorts, but kept coming back to this singular property because there was nothing like it anywhere. It continues to enchant us, and we find some new feature every time we visit.
While we primarily chose the home because it is two minutes from the ski resort, we also wanted a property that would keep us interested during the off-season -- the spring, summer and fall. We found that nearby Gettysburg and the surrounding wine country offered tons of activities all year long, including antique shows featuring dealers from six states, wine festivals, great downtown shopping, horseback riding, Civil War museums, exhibits and reenactments, hiking in nature preserves and more.
