About Gordie Beittenmiller

Hi ! Welcome to Orchard Hill. I grew up in the area and served as a Park Ranger at the Gettysburg National Park in the 70s and 80s. Although very tempting, I chose not to make the Park Service a career and ended up in Texas. However, I am active in the Gettysburg Foundation which supports the Park, and which brings me back to Gettysburg regularly to see old friends, something I never grow tired of. I am now an investor and operating executive based in London, but get back to the States frequently. We have three great kids, two girls in college and a son finishing high school. One of my goals is to spend more time in Gettysburg on Orchard Hill, so stay with us while you can !

Gordie Beittenmiller purchased this house in 2014

Why Gordie Beittenmiller chose Pennsylvania

I actually rented this house in 2013 and fell in love with the spectacular views and the modern ambience of the place.

What makes this house unique

You won't find another house like this in Gettysburg. Breathtaking views of South Mountain, the front range of the Appalachians, and just minutes from Gettysburg and the Battlefield, Gettysburg College, the main Adams County wineries, fine dining, golf, Ski Liberty and fishing, all in a modern setting. We hope you enjoy Orchard Hill as much as we do !

Better than the photos!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home while we were attending our daughters' graduations, and could not have been happier with our accommodations! Let me just say, the 360 deg views of the area are simply amazing! Our host, Ron, was very personable and very helpful getting us settled in. Since he resides downstairs, I probably would not recommend this home for a boisterous group. The home was very comfortable and well stocked with everything we needed. I would love to come back sometime when I could just sit and enjoy this beautiful home!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect place to stay while enjoying all that Gettysburg has to offer. The setting was idyllic, with incredible views of South Mountain. The home had everything we needed to get a good start to the morning (well-equipped kitchen, lots of space) and a relaxing place to come back to after a day spent roaming the battlefield.

Great Views! Spacious home.

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing. The house had plenty of room to move around, the kitchen was well stocked, the views overlooking the orchards were amazing, etc. Great escape from the city. I have nothing but great things to say about this house. I found it on VRBO and my husband and I took our little kids and our in-laws. Already planning our trip back next year.

If you are in the Gettysburg area and want a place to stay - this is it! The home is beautiful and the area surrounding the home is lovely countryside with gently rolling hills. Working with and meeting the gentleman who manages the property was a pleasure.
