This romantic apartment is on the second floor of a home built in the 1890's. Relax on the front porch at the entrance or enjoy the private deck on the second floor. Light abounds with quaint little coves for reading. In the fall the foliage of the trees is visible from all windows, the winter brings sparkle when the snowflakes fall and the wavy glass glistens as the street light provides illumination. Truly a beautiful sight. Summertime you can open the windows and listen to the bustle of Hanover Street as springtime blossoms everywhere. If you're looking for a place to get away and at the same time have the amenities such as restaurants and shopping this is a gem.
The flat is only 5 blocks from the square of Carlisle. On the square May through November, Wednesdays the farmers bring their produce and the community comes together. The square consists of Carlisle's old and new Courthouses and 2 historical churches that both George Washington and Benjamin Franklin were present at one time or another. There are bakeries, gift shops, theater and many more attractions all year around.
My husband and I have a love for the architecture of older structures including old Victorian properties. We acquired both 558 (Glass Gable North) and 560 (Glass Gable South) south Hanover Street in the spring of 2000. At the time my husband was serving on active duty in the Navy and he had been assigned to work at the Naval Support Activity, Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. We first discovered 560 South Hanover Street when we were looking to purchase a home. We immediately saw a lot of potential for 560. After getting 560 under contract for purchase, the owner of 560 also offered to sell us the adjoining property, 558 South Hanover Street. Within a 30 day period we had acquired both properties and we starting working on remodeling both properties. We lived in 560 until 2004 when we moved into the Carriage House which we had just completely remodeled on the rear of the 560 property. We still live in the Carriage House today. We started renting out 560 in 2008 and by that time we had starting referring to the property as the Glass Gable. Based on the glass that was installed on the front gable that adorns both 558 and 560 South Hanover Street. We have met some very interesting and outstanding people since we started offering the Glass Gable s a short term rental.

We enjoy old Victorians! We invite you to experience the feel and ambiance of staying in a Victorian that has been updated to provide those amenities such as running water that we have all come to except as a given for any home. This property is located less than 30 miles from Gettysburg, 180 miles from New York City, 120 miles from Washington DC, less than 80 miles from Baltimore and its inner harbor, and 30 to 35 miles away from Hershey, Pennsylvania the home of Hershey Chocolate and of course, Hershey Park. The Glass Gable is convenient to many areas of interest within a two to three hour drive.
As mentioned above, the Glass Gable has a great central location to many areas of interest.
We really enjoyed staying here during our Thanksgiving vacation! It is a beautiful home and the owners are very nice- even opened the door on Thanksgiving evening for us when we locked ourselves out! Highly recommended!
We loved staying here during our recent trip to Carlisle, PA! The owners are very friendly and helpful. We were so delighted to see it beautifully decorated for Christmas. This home is highly recommended!
We stayed at glass gable north for two weeks and really had a great time. The property is well kept and comfy and the accessibility to downtown carlisle is excellent.
Housekeeper was very hospitable. House was very clean, beautiful backyard, deck, and grill, and the city is great. There is much history here and an awesome place to get away! We had a very comfortable and joyful stay and would recommend to anyone.
We love the Glass Gable! We have stayed there 3 years in a row and while we normally stay in the house, we found the apartment to be equally well equipped and cozy. The owner is very friendly and helpful. You can't go wrong with this rental.
