Pennsylvania House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Beautiful mountain home on a secluded wooded lot. Excellent location for many activities. Screened in porch, stone fireplaces, newly remodeled and fully furnished. One mile from Appalachian Trail, Caledonia golf course and Totem Pole Playhouse. Ten min. from Chambersburg, Pa, 20 min from Gettysburg, 12 miles from Liberty Ski and Golf Resort. 10 miles to Penn National Golf Course, 90 min from Washington DC and Baltimore. Four hours from New York City.

Nice Location: We are located in a secluded mountain setting. It is very peaceful and you will enjoy spending time in the rocking chairs on the screened-in front porch. We are also one mile from the Appalachian Trail, the Totem Pole Playhouse(excellent theatre during the summer months) , Caledonia State park, a public swimming pool and The Caledonia Golf Club. A little farther afield, we have Gettysburg (15 mi), Penn National golf course (10 mi), Liberty Mountain Ski and Golf Resort, (12 mi) and Washington DC (90 mi).

Well Equipped: The house has everything you need, right down to the towels, bedding microwave and silverware. We're on 1.5 acres of land. There is plenty of room for the kids to run. Many Frisbee competitions have been played on our lawn.

We have a decent DVD collection. We have started to collect Film Movement independent movies that some of you should find interesting.

About Owner

We fell in love with this house when we first saw it but it was in disrepair. We spent the next five years remodeling and rebuilding it. We really like the peaceful feeling we get in the evening on the screened in porch or in front of the fireplace when it's cold out. Janet is a nurse practitioner and I am management consultant. We both work long hours and spend time volunteering at our church and we wish we had more time to spend at our Caledonia House but we have really enjoyed sharing it with others. The people who have come to our home through Homeaway have been excellent.

Comfortable home to relax

  • 4 of 5

We were a couple of friends who needed a comfortable place to gather, relax, & enjoy each other's company for a few days. We picked this location because it was close proximity to Shabath Mineral Wellness in Chambersburg where we wanted to enjoy a relaxing, therapeutic spa session in the salt cave. We found relaxing at the house to be quite comfortable & the visit to the salt cave is definitely something we would enjoy repeating & highly recommend other guests to check it out! We loved the character of the home! One morning we got to see 7 deer meandering past the house in the woods. The kitchen worked great for cooking all of our meals, but we can also highly recommend the Big Oak Cafe in Chambersburg. Great food & lovely cafe atmosphere. Overall, we found the house & location to be very accommodating! Thank you for opening your home to us!!

Returned for Another Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

You can't get much better than arriving to a well stocked, clean house, replete with full kitchen amenities, great CD collection, relaxing screened porch, beautifully updated bathrooms, plenty of yard for the dogs, and nothing planned but kicking back and forgetting the workweek. It isn't really a's a well loved home.

Comfortable and quirky - in a good way!

  • 5 of 5

Well maintained, clean, good quality linen. Fantastic location - easy to find with sat nav. Quirky - loved sitting on the covered veranda watching the fireflies. Lovely relaxing few days.

Another Relaxing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year staying at this true home away from home. I'm so blessed to have found a centrally located,comfortable and very well-maintained home 5minutes from extended family. I have to share an amazing experience I had this this stay. While sleeping in the upstairs bedroom with the night view, it was stormy one night and I was wakened by flashes of light several times in a row. Thinking it was lightening I finally kept my eyes open and waited to hear the thunder to know how far away the storm was. To my surprise it was lightening bugs, so bright the flashes woke me up! How wonderful.

Very cozy

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place to stay. It was very cozy and relaxing. My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our time here. It is a quick drive to Chambersburg and Gettysburg which was nice for shopping and eating out. We may come back this summer when there are more outside activities but it was definitely nice to just relax and refresh. I would recommend this to my friends and family.
