Gettysburg house description

This lovely cabin is nestled off a private road on a wooded 3-acre lot. Sit on the screened-in porch and enjoy the peace and quiet of the woods. Relax inside and read or watch television. If the weather is cold, the new Amish electric stove will keep you warm and cozy.
Do you love the mountains? Do you like to bike, hike, swim, play golf, ski, snowboard? Are you interested in Civil War history?
Thousands of visitors each year come to the Gettysburg Battlefield to learn about our past and to remember those who gave 'the last full measure of devotion.' This cottage is only 20 minutes away from the unique town of Gettysburg.
Do you like winter sports? The Cozy Cottage is 25 min from Ski Liberty where guests can enjoy skiing, snowboarding and cross county skiing.
Situated in the middle of Adams County apple orchard country, the cottage is only minutes away from Michaux State Park and the Appalachian Trail. There is biking--both mountain and road biking, swimming and fishing at Fuller Lake and Laurel Lake. Like to golf? Drive 10 minutes to one course, 25 minutes to another.
The cabin is conveniently located 1 hour from Harrisburg, 2 hours from Washington DC and Baltimore, 1 1/2 hours from Amish Country in Lancaster County and 1 1/2 hours from Hershey Park.
A perfect spot for a couple get-away or family looking to enjoy all the fun activities the area has to offer.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1980

About the owner: Our family has owned this cabin for 30 years. Living in the DC area my wife and I discovered Adams county and fell in love with its beauty and the outdoor opportunities it provided. When our daughter was growing up we used this cabin and the one next door for all our vacations. We've hiked many of the mountain trails, swam and fished in the lakes, skied at Ski Liberty, and explored the rich history of Gettysburg. We love this cabin and take pride in providing a beautiful, peaceful retreat for our guests. We hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
