"I highly recommend this home for anyone traveling to the area. We came for a week with my dance competition team. There were plenty of beds to accommodate the girls (and the beds are very comfortable!) the kitchen is fully
stocked with pots and pans and other cooking utensils.
The neighbor stopped by regularly to check on the area. Cameras are surrounding the home for
Security. The pool is beautiful and clean! The only complaint we had was with the hot water. Back to back showers are
Not recommended... Hot water
Ran out quickly.
Overall, it was a beautiful place to stay."

"We rented this cottage for 4 days over Thanksgiving and had an excellent experience. The place was very spacious and well equipped, and the owners were extremely helpful and accommodating. When ther was a small electrical problem owners made sure it was fixed immediately. We can recommend this most highly. In summer this would be a wonderful place to stay."

Gorgeous house, but NO CELL SERVICE available at this location
"This house and property--is gorgeous! The biggest problem we had here--this house has NO CELL SERVICE! It must be too far back in the woods. It ended up being a very important glitch in our visit, as two families had emergency family issues come up and communication was a BIG problem. Some of us were able to send iMessages on our iPhones, but those people who had Android phones were even out of luck on being able to send text messages. The wifi/internet service in the house is very slow and the modem is outdated, which is what I believe caused the problem with the texting (there wasn't even enough bandwidth to FaceTime). The slow wifi also caused issues with our tablets and laptops working slowly. There was only ONE landline phone in the kitchen (for this huge house). Even though we were able to make and receive long distance calls on that landline, it was very inconvenient. While I realize a lot of people go on vacation to get away from it all and relax, in this day and age, we still depend on our cell phones and need communication and working, modern wifi.
Pros: lovely house set back in the woods; plenty of seating for meal time and pots, pans, and dinnerware; huge master bath with a beautiful huge tub; wrap around porch; all kinds of wildlife; fire pit and BBQ grill; most of the beds were comfortable and had nice linens; towels were thick and soft. Lots of comfy chairs, games and DVDs around.
Cons: upkeep on this property is lacking. The shower curtain in the master bath had mildew all over it (as did the one downstairs) and it was dirty in other spots in the bathroom (the maid service is not doing a good job of cleaning) and light bulbs were out in lamps. We didn't have enough towels to go around. There were only 2 TVs, and their satellite TV had minimal channels on it (again, if it's raining outside--you need to do something). There were minimal nightstands and bedroom furniture to store our clothes. Some of the chairs on the porch were broken in spots. The sprayer attachment on the kitchen sink didn't work, & we didn't have a clean dish rag or sponge to wash dishes with (only a very dirty sponge which we refused to use).
This is a nice play to stay--but the owners really need to do some upkeep. The lack of cell service was a dealbreaker for us; and, by the way, this place is a good 20 minutes outside of Gettysburg, not the 8 minutes we were told. Even though it was lovely, it was quite a drive out there. I'd stay somewhere else next time."

Spacious, comfortable house: great for extended families
"We rented this place for a vacation with our friends and their families. The house is very large, plenty of space for all of us. each family had a room to themselves with plenty of room to spare. the kids loved the bunk beds in one of the room. the open layout of a living room, dining room and kitchen meant all of us could hang out in a common space. the house is also an easy distance from dutch wonderland, which is where we spent most of our days. the amusement park is great for folks with little kids (3-8 year olds)
Rosene was extremely helpful with all the bookings and reservations and very prompt on all the questions. Would be a good place to stay on our next visit to this area."
