Property description

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!
