The cottage is fully furnished with three beds (one full size and two twins) that sleeps four (4) people and two cots (with mattresses) that sleeps two (2) people. Maximum Occupancy is six (6) people. [Please note that the $99/night rate is based on four people. Add an additional $10.00/night for each additional person above the four up to the maximum of six.

A full size washer and dryer is also included right off the main dining area. Truly a place to 'get away from it all', there is no WIFI available but access to the internet or your e-mail can be done easily with a smartphone. There is also no television. Books, board games, playing cards and wildlife sightings are the main forms of entertainment here on the farm. A small working fireplace in the living room provides guests with a cozy atmosphere while taking the chill out of a cool autumn evening. Spring through late fall, a picnic table is provided behind the house with a beautiful view of the farm and picturesque South Mountains.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Lawrence and Wendy Shrader are the owners of Willow Lodge and Primrose Dale Farm. It is a working farm that not only produces corn, soybeans and grass hay but is also home to a variety of livestock including purebred Kinder and Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Saxony Ducks, Berkshire Hogs, one Alpaca and one Llama. Lawrence was born and raised in Littlestown and Wendy in Gettysburg so they are both native to Adams County. Both have a family background in farming.

Why the Owner Chose Gettysburg:
Recently married in 2006, Lawrence and Wendy began their search for the farm of their dreams...one that was not too far off the beaten path but far enough to provide the tranquility and pastoral setting they were looking for. Their search ended in 2010 when a 52 acre farm with two houses went on the auction block. Lawrence and Wendy moved quickly and with one swift sound of a gavel, Primrose Dale was born. By offering Willow Lodge as a guest cottage here on their farm, they hope to share with others the peace and tranquil beauty they found here in upper Adams County.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Sitting back off the main road, the private gravel lane leads to a farm house and guest cottage. An abundance of wildlife can be spotted from Willow Lodge. It is not a rare occurrence to see a buck or a doe with her fawn grazing at the edge of the woods. The sound of a woodpecker, or a dove; an occasional 'hoot' of an owl is typical. The quiet beauty and the privacy of the location is unsurpassed….a serene place to rest, relax and renew.
