About the property

' Experience ' The History In Downtown Gettysburg

Imagine yourself back in those three famous days in 1863 when you take in the festivities of our 150th Anniversary! You will have fun exploring the area; the adventurous will enjoy touring the 40 miles of battlefield roads (by bicycle, horseback or vehicle), tour a civil war house, talk to the soldiers in encampments and reenactments, or take a haunted ghost tour by night.

At the end of the day you can relax and enjoy your stay at our newly renovated 2nd floor accommodations located on historic Baltimore Street in downtown Gettysburg. The property has 2 bedrooms with 2 queen beds and a single day bed and can sleep 5. There is 1 bathroom which consists of a tub/shower combo, a fully fitted eat in kitchen, a TV/sitting room with cable TV, and Wifi. We provide you with towels, linens, pots and pans, utensils, coffee maker, toaster, iron and board, hair dryer, everything that will make you feel right at home!

Great Location and Price

  • 5 of 5

Location of this house along historic Baltimore Street was exactly as advertised and as commented on in previous reviews. Virtually everything you need to see and do is within walking distance. We enjoyed our stay and would defnitely stay there again.

Great location but very noisy

  • 3 of 5

Property was clean and located in the middle of town. No wi-fi so had to spend money for roaming. Motorcycles and RVs are heard all day and night at house. Window a/c units were noisy Deck was nice. TV did not have many good stations

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't ask for a better location to feel like we were in the heart of historical events! Met neighbors as we walked around - everyone was friendly and told us something interesting. We were a small group of 3 generations so we appreciated that there were three beds and room to hang out together or separately. Rod, who was easy to get in touch with and quick to reply, met us at the door to welcome us and answer any questions. Unit was well stocked and we also took advantage of the laundry equipment so we left with suitcases of clean clothes. The only negative was that we couldn't stay longer!

History and comfort!

  • 5 of 5

We had a really lovely stay at this beautiful old home recently. Every detail was considered and we really appreciated the cool, comfortable bed after a long, hot day of sightseeing. The location was perfect, close or convenient to all Gettysburg areas, and the parking was easy and right on site. Communication with Rod and Jen prior to our stay made it even more welcoming. Highly recommended!

Excellent location!! Off street parking!

  • 5 of 5

The only less than great thing was that the second bedroom only had ceiling fan. A/C in living room and smaller bedroom. Sort of hot in July. But other that that, it was a great place. Would love to visit again!
