Beautiful home in Gettysburg!

  • 4 of 5

The house was immaculate and was right in the heart of Gettysburg. I would definitely rent again. Only problem was one of the three couples had to cancel at the last minute because of an elderly sick parent. Contacted the owner/property manager and the best they could do was a downgrade to a smaller place with only one bathroom. Would have been nice if they'd given some sort of refund to the absent couple!

Awesome & Right in the Heart of it all!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this immaculate and well equipped townhouse for 3 adult couples for two nights. Every couple had their own bathroom which was huge! So nice to stay together instead of being in a hotel. Small backyard but darling, and very private. Would have liked a table and chairs out there so we could have our breakfast outdoors but other than that this place was perfect. Thank you for sharing this home!

The Barclay House was a beautiful and well maintained home located in a very ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at The Barclay House in March 2017! We arrived right after the area had received a significant snowfall. The sidewalks to the home were completely clear of snow and the owner had provided ice melt to use as needed. The house was exactly as advertised: a large Victorian with several rooms including a great kitchen and dining room, a family room, a games room and a formal living room with an electric fireplace. The wood work in the home was amazing! Very beautiful! The bedrooms were large and the mattresses were very comfortable. The owner had left amenities such as dish soap, bath soap, toilet paper, paper towels and coffee which was greatly appreciated. The linens and towels were clean and plentiful. The house was very clean and welcoming.

The location of the house was perfect to walk to Lincoln Square and to the Farnsworth House as well as to the cemetery. The house is located on Baltimore Street which can be a noisy street due to the amount of traffic.

Tess was very easy to deal with and was a concerned owner as she called while we were staying there to make sure that we had everything we needed and to make sure the house met our expectations. The house truly exceeded our expectations!

My family and I would recommend staying at The Barclay House and we would certainly stay at the house again!

Wonderful Family Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

Our family was looking for a house that would sleep 6 of us from out of town, yet be large enough to entertain the other 8 or so relatives from the area who were anxious to join us for meals and socializing. This home more than met our needs. First of all, it was spotless. Second, every thing we needed was there, and we had plenty of chairs for our guests and used the dining room table as a buffet area. The younger generation took advantage of the little nook in the front room, where they played cards and assembled puzzles, while the sports fans watched their games in the adjacent TV room. The rest enjoyed the living room, porch rockers (we had 60 degree weather all weekend!), as well as the outdoor furniture in the backyard. The kitchen was spacious and very easy to work in for several cooks, and the back porch was perfect for storing our coolers for extra drinks that couldn't fit in the fridge. A downstairs bathroom was perfect for the older generation who didn't enjoy the stairs, but with three full bathrooms upstairs it was no hardship for the 5 of us in the four bedrooms. This home is so well kept and historically interesting, and it is in the heart of town where all the shops, restaurants and entertainment is located. Parking was a bit tricky at times for our guests, but those of us staying at the home had space for two vehicles out back. You cannot beat this home for space, comfort and convenience, and we thank our hosts for providing our family with such a beautiful place to stay.

Amazing weekend!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our weekend at the Barclay house. And has a great location and a lot of character inside. There was plenty room for 10 of us. Everything was ready for us when we arrived in the checkout process was easy.
