Gettysburg farmhouse description

The Alexander Currens Farmhouse (c.1799) is located on the southern end of the Gettysburg Battlefield. In July 1863, it sat in the crossfire between the Union and Confederate troops on the Second Day of the Gettysburg campaign.
The winner of the 2009 restoration award by Historic Gettysburg, Adams County, the house sits quietly today, a 5 minute bike ride from Little Round Top, Devil's Den, and the new Visitor's Center. The house is furnished with comfortable antiques. It has three bedrooms, two with queen size beds and the third with a full size bed. The house has a new kitchen, a quiet study and living room. Every room has its own fireplace, and gas-fired stove. (The house also has central air.) There are two full baths, one with a combined shower/tub, and the other with a deep antique soaking tub. The second floor porch, equipped with comfortable chairs, overlooks the National Park. A brick patio, surrounding the old well, provides a lovely outdoor dining space.


Hopefully a Truly Memorable Experience: We hope we have created a lovely environment for those coming to explore Gettysburg. Relying on our own experience in renting private homes, we have purposefully used very nice linens and mattresses. We have also equipped the house with a nice music, and an extensive video library. A gas light greets you on your arrival.

We also provide complete book with suggested day trips, good restaurants, and other things that will make your stay enjoyable. For those who sew (a family passion of ours) we have stocked the house with Ott lights, a nice sewing machine, and a number of other useful items. We also give you directions to some of the great local fabric stores, many of which sell reproduction civil war materials.

We want your stay to be memorable, so if there is anything else you would need, please -- just ask.

Also,if you are looking to explore Central Pennsylvania, we have a number of historic homes in the area and we offer combined stays among them. Please go to www.poohbiscuitfarm.com for more information on our other properties. We offer stays where you move from one house to another, or the other option is to reserve two houses and bounce back and forth. Call us or email us for more information.
