Brand new to rentals! Downtown Civil War Home ~~~~ 2 Blocks From Lincoln Square
Lifetime Civil War enthusiasts that have been going to Gettysburg for over 30 years. For our vacation home, we wanted to provide our valued guests the same thing we look for in a home in this historic town---character, ambiance of everything Civil War, including the distinguished bronze plaque confirming this home stood at this exact location during the battle.
Why Frank chose Gettysburg
Two blocks from Lincoln Square in downtown Gettysburg. Original structure Civil War furnishings throughout Owned by famous families of Gettysburg Owned by a Pennsylvania soldier from the 87th Pa. Vols Old charm character throughout the house .
What makes this Estate unique
Pictured in a famous book of original photographs taken after the battle from a viewpoint on Cemetery Hill, this house can be seen as it stood during the cannon explosions and rifle fire during the 3-day battle. Over this terrain, the Louisiana Tigers pursued Federal Troops through town and eventually to Cemetery Hill. As Costner's men retreated, many Union soldiers hid in these homes to avoid capture.

Charming historic home within walking distance of Gettysburg town center
This house does not disappoint! Three sizable bedrooms/suites with individual bathrooms plus an additional downstairs bathroom means that no one has to wait for facilities; two gorgeous screen porches (one upstairs, one downstairs) provide plenty of lounging room; dining room, living room, sitting room, and media room give plenty of space to spread out; kitchen is new and well-equipped. Beds are comfortable, and linens, blankets, and towels provided in abundance. The house itself is thoughtfully decorated in keeping with the period. The owner is responsive, welcoming, and so very easy to deal with. We stayed here for a family get-together and are already looking forward to our stay next year.
House was restored accurately and beautifully. Hope to stay there again next year.
Great Historic Home
The York Street Home is located close to downtown Gettysburg shopping and restaurants. The house is decorated with period furnishings, but modern kitchen and bathrooms which are much appreciated. The home is a great base for your Gettysburg adventures.
We have used VRBO before and have NEVER had such incredible customer service from a homeowner! Frank was so kind and thoughtful! There is nothing he and his wife Donna did not think of from toiletries in all of the bathrooms (toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo), all paper products from toilet paper, kleenex and papertowels to even having coffee available to use along with bottled water in the fridge! There was not one thing that we needed! Access to this house was super simple and when we walked in we felt as if we were taken back in time. This historical house exceeded our expectations! Every chair we sat in made you think of who may have sat there before, the front sitting room was wonderful to enjoy a wine and conversation and the separate tv room was cozy and while still holding to historical standards. The bedrooms were AMAZING!!! Each with their own bathrooms and even had tvs in the room. The beds were super fresh and cozy too! The audio house tour was so fun and my twin and I enjoyed it as we sipped our morning coffee! We also enjoyed the enclosed sun room, which has an electric fireplace to warm it up on cooler days. We were also very grateful for the email with tips on the home and also the wonderful dinner recommendations! LaBella had delicious Italian food and so close to the house! ~ All in all, we couldn't have been more pleased! I would not hesitate to rent this house! Honestly, one of the sweetest, most historical houses in Gettysburg and within walking distance of so much! Thank you Frank and Donna for sharing your precious home with us!
Just perfect - and that is a huge statement since we had 6 ladies staying to enjoy the food, sites and shopping. The house was perfect and had everything we could want or need. Frank was terrific to work with. We would stay again to enjoy the back porch for morning coffee and afternoon drinks, we loved the sunroom for breakfast and enjoyed the house (we all loved the audio tour) with lots of amenities. You will not regret choosing this house for your stay.
Most amazing stay ever!
I have stayed in a lot of VRBO, home away, Airbnb homes and this by far was the best in ever with regard to attention to detail. Frank has thought of everything!!! From the authentic decor to toothbrushes in every room, you will not need anything. He even delivered graduation balloons to the house before our arrival when he found out we were visiting Gettysburg to celebrate our daughter’s graduation from Gettysburg College. It was an amazing stay thanks to Frank!!!
Just 2 blocks from the heart of Downtown Historic Lincoln Square, your leisurely stroll along historic York Street transports you to everything you desire from this Civil War getaway vacation gem.
A 4 minute drive to Gettysburg College!
