Overview

About the property

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.

family weekend

  • 5 of 5

Clean,welcomimg,comfortable were our first impression.The location was outstanding! We thank the Laverne House folks for sharing this wonderful spot. A great time was had by all. Ages 9 through 64 we had no problems with the stairs and everyone complimented the mattresses. We are all looking forward to our next visit.

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location in the heart of Gettysburg a block from the square. Spent a few days with 3 other couples and had plenty of room. Large 4 bedroom with plenty of space for hanging out in the dining room and living room. Stairs are a little steep so not good for disabled or those with limited mobility. It was clean with good beds, plenty of towels etc. A great place!!

It was s great, very comfortable gathering place for our family reunion. Beds are very comfortable, because it is s historic building with thick walls, sound didn't carry.

Great Location!

  • 4 of 5

This property is exactly as depicted in the photos and description and is perfect for a larger family of around 8. Walking distance to the square for restaurants and cocktails! Very clean and tastefully decorated. Owner is super easy to deal with and very accommodating. Downstairs bathroom is a little small and water pressure is light, but the bathroom upstairs makes up for that. Everything in super working order including Internet and cable. Two parking spaces in the rear are a plus!
