Gettysburg cottage description

This three bedroom ranch style cozy cottage is located only 11 miles from historic Gettysburg, 45 miles from Hershey Park and approximately 70 miles from Lancaster's amish country. It is fully furnished with beds for four (4) people. (The maximum occupancy, however, can be extended up to six (6) people for an additional fee and cots with mattresses and linens will be provided). The cottage has two newly renovated full baths with linens, dining area and kitchen with stove, oven, microwave, refrigerator, toaster, coffee maker, and all pots, pans, utensils and dishes needed to provide for all of your dining needs. A full size washer and dryer is also included right off the main dining area. A small working fireplace in the furnished living room will provide a cozy atmosphere and take the chill out of a cool autumn evening. During the warmer months, spring through autumn, a picnic table is located behind the house with a beautiful view of the farm and picturesque South Mountains.

                  Location

                  Located in a bucolic region of Adams County, just minutes from historic downtown Gettysburg, Willow Lodge is nestled in a wooded setting at the edge of a working farm, Primrose Dale. Close to Route 15, guests have easy access to other area attractions such as Adams County wineries, the Appalachian Trail, ski slopes, golf courses, antique and outlet shopping, Harrisburg museums, and Hershey Park just to name a few.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: Lawrence and Wendy Shrader are the owners of 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 stone driveway 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 or 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.
