|Minimum Stay||2 nights|
An historic vacation getaway tailored for discriminating guests who desire an authentic Gettysburg experience while catering to all your 21st century comforts allowing you and your friends/family to enjoy exclusive and private occupancy of the entire house.
Our circa 1839 York Street Manor stood as a brick sentinel in the path of retreating Federal soldiers on July 1, 1863. Confederate troops camped in these very yards while General Ewell planned his repeated strategy to take Culp’s Hill only several houses east of here.
Owned by Cecilia Codori (of the prominent Codori’s of Gettysburg), she and her husband Joseph called this manor home from 1850 to 1865. In 1865, the house’s proud new owner was William F. Baker, an officer of the 87th Pennsylvania Volunteers. In 1870, ownership transferred to John and Catherine Culp, with the road to Culp’s Hill (East Confederate Avenue) just two blocks south.
Memoirs of a 16 year old girl who lived across the street (Liberty Hollinger) recalled her and her father yelling at the soldiers looting the unoccupied homes across from her's, and how General Robert E. Lee and his command paused before these houses on their mounts surveying their strength. A temporary Confederate grave was located in the backyard of Cecilia and Joseph’s property.
Nestled only two blocks from the heart of downtown Gettysburg’s Lincoln Square, enjoy the antebellum homes along York Street as you leisurely stroll to restaurants, pubs, eateries, retail shoppes and antique stores, including the nostalgic Majestic movie theater.
Each of our three bedrooms has its own private on-suite bath, and the house provides you with not one, but two master suites.
Master Suite 1: The first floor Lincoln Master Bedroom boasts a king size memory foam bed fit for a Presidential stay. Flanking the bedroom is the master bath, extending the length of the room, with lavish amenities which compliment the radiant heated floor to keep you cozy in cooler seasons.
Master Suite 2: The spacious 2nd floor Codori Master Suite offers you a queen size mattress, full parlor/sitting room and includes a separate dressing room attached to your on-suite private bath. Fronting York Street, you can almost see General Lee’s army proceeding past.
Bedroom 3: The John Culp room bears its namesake from an owner of the house and of the famous Culp family of Gettysburg. Take a step back in time and relax in you queen size bed and on-suite private bath with marble floor that transports you to days of old, with the original Civil War exposed brick wall set against a refinished cast iron claw foot bathtub and shower.
Antiquity meets modernity in each bedroom which is equipped with wall-mounted flat screen televisions, digital clocks equipped with usb ports (no more charging your phone from across the room) with soft towels and clean bedding upon arrival. Extra pillow top auto-inflate air bed for 7th guest in Codori parlor.
Relax on the 2nd floor screened in porch, or enjoy your favorite drink on the back yard porch. Bring your own wine and keep it that perfect temperature in our wine chiller located in the separate media room (complete with 46” TV and DVD player to watch your favorite Civil War movies). You can be chef for the day and prepare dinner in our modern kitchen, complete with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances, or treat yourself to grilling your favorite barbecue in the backyard (seasonal).
Off-street parking is extremely convenient in the three bay garage which sets on the same location of the original carriage barn along Race Horse Alley.
We want you to enjoy your stay at the Historic York Street Manor every time you visit Gettysburg.
We enjoyed all the effort and time spent to provide the unique and special touches that make the Manor a very special place to enjoy family and friends!
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.
Two blocks from Lincoln Square in downtown Gettysburg.
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
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.
Gettysburg is a great place to visit, and this historic home is a destination of it's own. The space is warm, cozy and inviting. Civil War era appointments and items of interest are everywhere. We spent hours just exploring. The home is elegantly decorated in the Civil War period, but with all the comforts of the finest hotels. The main entrance is dramatic and inviting. The back entrance is convenient to ample parking. The dining room with its harvest table is a perfect gathering place. The bedroom suites are charming, spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed the virtual tour so much we did it twice. This is a wonderful place for a single family, a group of friends or corporate event. The owners are professional, pleasant, accommodating and thought of absolutely everything we could need to make our stay a special event. Thank you for making our Christmas holiday the best ever!
A group of 3 who wanted to experience Gettysburg in a different manner and found it here. You will not be disappointed. We found this home filled with history and comfort. The owner restored this property beyond description - from the Civil War period furniture to the audio tour of the house - it was perfect. The owners didn't miss a thing. If you forget something, they have it available for you. No need to pack towels, sheets, hair blowers - they had it all. From the moment you walk through the door, you actually feel as though you stepped back into time. All the beds were comfortable and the amenities were perfect. The bathrooms are all modernized for full comfort. We toured Gettysburg and the surrounding area and had a wonderful time! We found great restaurants and the people we encountered couldn't have been more helpful, friendly and accommodating. We all decided that we are going to make this an annual trip with hopefully a stay at the Manor.
The owner, Frank is so nice and even follows up with a phone call after your stay to make sure you were satisfied. Great guy who obviously takes pride in his "York Street Manor" for very obvious reasons. Trust me - you will want to return once you've stayed here.
My family and I were in town for a wedding and we were excited to fill our weekend with trips to the museums and the battlegrounds and really soak up history. I am so glad we decided to stay at the Historic York Street Manor, and I can't imagine experiencing this special town any other way. The home itself is a piece of history and it felt really special to stay there. We especially enjoyed the self guided audio tour.
The beds were very comfortable and the house is walking distance to the center of town and all the restaurants and shops. The home owners could not have been more friendly and accommodating. Frank really goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable and have a memorable visit. We will definitely visit Gettysburg again and plan to stay at the Historic York Street Manor!!!!!
The York Street Manor exceeded our expectations! It truly added to our Gettysburg experience making it feel as though we were living in history, yet still with the convenience of today's modern amenities that we are accustomed to. The home is gorgeous with superb attention to detail. The historical artifacts were a pleasure to look at, read, and enjoy! The audio tour of the home was extremely impressive just like one you would listen to in an actual museum. It was truly amazing to learn that the dining table was the actual table of the home circa 1839! We have stayed in a lot of VRBO homes and this home, unlike others we've stayed in, was fully stocked with little things that made us extra comfortable so we didn't have to go to the grocery store in order to stock up on coffee, creamer, sugar, bottled water, laundry detergent, toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, or extra toiletries to supplement our diminishing supply. It was also very clean and had more than enough linens. The location of the home is also fabulous! It's within walking distance to the town square where you'll find shopping, restaurants, and many local attractions. We would highly recommend this home to anyone planning a trip to Gettysburg! With the York Street Manor, you will not just visit history...you truly will be staying there!
The York Street Manor was perfect for our group vacation in Gettysburg. The 3 bedrooms and baths were very comfortable, and they were decorated with modern features that did not take away from it being an historic home. There were 3 porches/sunrooms in the house which made it easy to get together with our friends for wine and visit. The back porch was the best (less noisy).
The owner really thought of all the little details that made the stay special. I especially enjoyed listening to the audio history of the house and finding all the things in the house that made that history real. The location was wonderful for our group which likes to be able to walk to stores and restaurants. I'd definitely recommend this home.
This was the best home rental we have ever stayed. The home is a perfect balance of a step back in time to the 19th century with beautiful antiques throughout, but with the elegant appointments and comforts of today (with a special shoutout to that amazing mattress!). The layout of the home is perfect for 2-3 couples and has a variety of common areas to enjoy during the down time in between all of the Gettysburg activities available. The owners were communicative and truly cared about providing a wonderful vacation getaway. (Thank you!)
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!
