Gettysburg farmhouse description

We invite you to stay in our comfortably and tastefully decorated 1840 four-bedroom farmhouse and cozy country cottage nestled in the middle of 83 acres of rolling Pennsylvania countryside. The Pennsylvania farmhouse is a simple log frame structure with white German siding with two front doors, typical architecture for the mid-1800's. The cottage has a large central stone fireplace (currently not functional) and was used as a smokehouse and summer kitchen in the late 19th & early 20th centuries.
Situated in beautiful Adams County, we are located approximately two miles from the historic colonial town of East Berlin, PA (population: 1,400), founded by Pennsylvania Germans in 1764 and placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985.

Property Description and Location: The property has a beautiful in-ground pool, Pennsylvania bank barn, 3-car garage, lovely views, and privacy and is an excellent base for relaxation and exploration of nearby Gettysburg, Lancaster's PA Dutch Country, Hershey, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Washington DC, and New York. World-wide travelers will find many French and European touches. We also have lots of original art and handmade pottery in both the farmhouse and cottage.

Historical: Our farmhouse has two plaques indicating registration as a Civil War building (having been built prior to the Civil War of 1863) and has received recognition from Historic Gettysburg-Adams County, Inc. as a home restored to its original 1840's era.

Sleeping Accomodations: The rental of this property includes both the Farmhouse and the Cottage:
Farmhouse (sleeps up to 8): There are four bedrooms on the second floor of the farmhouse: three with a double bed and one with two single beds. All are furnished with antique dressers, desks, and lovely bed linens.
Cottage (sleeps 2-4): There is one loft-style bedroom with double bed on the second floor and a comfortable pull-out double sofa bed in the living room.
In addition, we also have a Writer's Studio with two single beds, which can be used, if needed, at a cost of $75/night.

We will consider pets with prior authorization and charge a one-time pet fee of $75/pet.

We have had several weddings at our farm which have been beautiful! We allow small weddings of about 100 guests or less. Please ask about our rates. We will be glad to give you recommendations for tent rental, caterers, photographers, etc.
