This is the way to visit Gettysburg. On arrival at the Newharts Farm you are greeted by Tom and Carol and your history experience begins. Recommend very highly.

Sublime Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived with mixed expectations as the photos do not do this lovely place justice. As soon as Tom toured us through the property, our expectations were exceeded by miles! The grounds are spectacular and the amenities those of a 4 star b&b! The owners, Carol and Tom have thought of everything and respond immediately to any request. Our visit was way to short but we can understand why families return time after time to stay at this beautiful place. You made me look good too, for selecting your farm for our family weekend. And for that, I thank you!

A wonderful place for a family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

My family (4 couples with 7 teen and 20-something kids) rented both of the houses on the property for a New Year's weekend reunion. We had a wonderful time. The Old Stone House has a dining room area that seats 25, and worked perfectly for our sit-down dinner. The Barn has a basement with a bar, pool table, and air hockey, and was a great site for our New Years Eve celebration. The kitchens in both houses are well-equipped, and the bedrooms and sitting areas are lovely. Each bedroom has its own bathroom. The owner was very accommodating and rightfully very proud of the property and of the area. We hope to return in the future.

Excellent Family Reunion Spot!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family (mom, dad, sisters, brother and spouses) rented both the house and barn. It was great! Big enough for us all to gather for dinner together, visit and talk. The owners, Tom and Carol, were great and provided a tour of the property which included a renovated caboose. You can tell they take a lot of pride in the property and providing great service to all of us while we were there. My daughter and I plan on going back later in the year.

Excellent Memorial Day Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 adults, 2 kids ages 11 and 8) stayed for a three day weekend at the farmhouse and enjoyed every minute of it! The owners were incredibly friendly, helpful, and just good people. We have stayed in numerous homes found on VRBO and Home Away and count this home a particular favorite. The entire compound is great for small events with pretty gardens and rolling hills all around. We loved the personal tour of the homes and restored caboose given to us and the attention to detail was enviable. Gettysburg is great for history buffs but also for family fun. The town was only a few minutes away with the tourist attractions and drug/grocery stores near by.

Women's Weekend

  • 5 of 5

For about 15+ years the women in my family get together for a weekend to celebrate the life of our mother/grandmother/aunt. We were delighted to find this beautiful farm house and barn so close to Gettysburg. Tom and Carol were fantastic hosts and the houses were perfect and beautifully decorated. We will definitely be back.
