Description

Gettysburg House Rental Photos and Description

1st floor of historic building (2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, garden, parking)

This charming Civil War era house is located on historic Baltimore Street in downtown Gettysburg. The first floor has been restored, with two bedrooms (queen beds), and there is a queen pullout sofa bed in the TV room, so the house can sleep 4 + 2. The bathroom has a shower. In addition there is a fully fitted kitchen, dining room, reading room, and a parlor with a gas-log fire. There is central a/c throughout. At the rear of the house is a secluded garden and parking for 2 cars.

The house is ideal for 4-6 people. You can walk to most of the shops and restaurants. The National Military Park (Battlefield) is two minutes walk away. Paranormal investigators might enjoy their experience here as well!

Suitability:

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Pennsylvania Dutch Country

I bought the house with the intention of living in downtown Gettysburg, but moved into The Barclay House instead.

Charming historic house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 4 nights! It was great to have a parking space out back, off the busy street! Convenient walk or short drive to many Gettysburg attractions. The house was clean and roomy for the four of us. We hardly heard the tenant upstairs. Would recommend for anyone who would like to stay in a house that survived through the Battle of Gettysburg!!!

Great house, great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay. The house was clean and super charming. The yard and parking spot in the back were a bonus. We could walk to many things right in town. We would definitely recommend staying here!

Great location, very clean, comfortable

  • 4 of 5

Overall we all enjoyed our stay. The house is beautiful and seems well maintained. We had a few things occur: first, there were a few tiny ants on kitchen floor when we got in. Maybe they came in with us but we weren't sure. Second, disappointed pull out couch was not in tv room as listed. Third, the one house key was bent so a few of us were locked out until others came home. And finally, I got 2 terrible splinters from wood railing leading up to deck. I had to dig them out with a sewing needle! None of these would keep us from renting the property again. I do suggest keeping an eye on the possible ant problem in kitchen, taking a look at the keys to make sure they both work and maybe think about a friendlier railing to the deck. I had foot reconstruction and dual knee replacements so I had to rely on that short wood railing to do the few steps. Not complaining, merely making suggestions. We enjoyed our mini vacation at this property. And we really would come back. Even if I have to wear protective hand gear!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for staying with us and for your review. I just wanted to clarify that there is a queen-size, brand new, pull out couch with linen but it is not located in the TV room, it is located in the library. If you pull the doors shut it can be a whole additional bedroom on it's own. If you would have called to let us know about the ants when you arrived we would have had the opportunity to take care of that for you. Best Wishes, ~ Amy, Manager
