These two lovely cottages are secluded and quiet in the countryside outside of Gettysburg. We chose Cushing cottage for the king bed, which was very comfortable. Furnished with antiques collected by the mother of owner Chris, this high-ceilinged and spacious cottage is clean and fresh and up to all modern standards, and she keeps it well stocked with all sorts of amenities, incuding a welcome bottle of wine, crackers and cheese, chips, pastries, juices, water bottles, and breakfast sausage and egg biscuits in the freezer ready to heat up in the microwave, as well as a coffee maker. The toiletries are high quality and a hair dryer provided. When I requested a toaster, she provided one for me. I told her we would get in very late at night and when we arrived at 2:00 am not only was the cottage heated and ready for us, with the lights on, providing a cheerful welcoming aspect for weary travelers, her charming husband Todd even came over to check that we had everything we needed. They both couldn't have been nicer throughout our stay. Truly warm, gracious and kind people. In the morning we were charmed to watch their beautiful chickens, wandering their wooded property, scratching for food and softly clucking in a sort of gentle murmur. Later we met their sweet dogs. We enjoyed having access to the bustle of Gettysburg and then retreating to this peaceful oasis again. I grew up around the corner from this property, which is why I chose it for my return visit decades after I moved to California, but we loved it so much that we plan to return more regularly and wouldn't stay anywhere else now. It will be our home away from home in Gettysburg from now on! It really is a bargain at the price and I would give it a sixth star if I could.
We can’t say enough about our stay at Meadowbrook Farm! The house is absolutely beautiful and has everything you need for a great stay away from home. The home is the perfect mix of hystoric charm and modern day comforts, a lot of care clearly went into the finishing of it. The location is great and very close to shopping and restaurants. We will definitely stay at Meadowbrook if we are in the Carlisle area again!! Thank you so much Mary and Mark for opening up your home for us!
