An historic vacation getaway tailored for discriminating guests who desire an authentic Gettysburg experience while catering to all your 21st century comforts allowing you and your friends/family to enjoy exclusive and private occupancy of the entire house.
Our circa 1839 York Street Manor stood as a brick sentinel in the path of retreating Federal soldiers on July 1, 1863. Confederate troops camped in these very yards while General Ewell planned his repeated strategy to take Culp’s Hill only several houses east of here.
Owned by Cecilia Codori (of the prominent Codori’s of Gettysburg), she and her husband Joseph called this manor home from 1850 to 1865. In 1865, the house’s proud new owner was William F. Baker, an officer of the 87th Pennsylvania Volunteers. In 1870, ownership transferred to John and Catherine Culp, with the road to Culp’s Hill (East Confederate Avenue) just two blocks south.
Memoirs of a 16 year old girl who lived across the street (Liberty Hollinger) recalled her and her father yelling at the soldiers looting the unoccupied homes across from her's, and how General Robert E. Lee and his command paused before these houses on their mounts surveying their strength. A temporary Confederate grave was located in the backyard of Cecilia and Joseph’s property.
Nestled only two blocks from the heart of downtown Gettysburg’s Lincoln Square, enjoy the antebellum homes along York Street as you leisurely stroll to restaurants, pubs, eateries, retail shoppes and antique stores, including the nostalgic Majestic movie theater.
Each of our three bedrooms has its own private on-suite bath, and the house provides you with not one, but two master suites.
Master Suite 1: The first floor Lincoln Master Bedroom boasts a king size memory foam bed fit for a Presidential stay. Flanking the bedroom is the master bath, extending the length of the room, with lavish amenities which compliment the radiant heated floor to keep you cozy in cooler seasons.
Master Suite 2: The spacious 2nd floor Codori Master Suite offers you a queen size mattress, full parlor/sitting room and includes a separate dressing room attached to your on-suite private bath. Fronting York Street, you can almost see General Lee’s army proceeding past.
Bedroom 3: The John Culp room bears its namesake from an owner of the house and of the famous Culp family of Gettysburg. Take a step back in time and relax in you queen size bed and on-suite private bath with marble floor that transports you to days of old, with the original Civil War exposed brick wall set against a refinished cast iron claw foot bathtub and shower.
Antiquity meets modernity in each bedroom which is equipped with wall-mounted flat screen televisions, digital clocks equipped with usb ports (no more charging your phone from across the room) with soft towels and clean bedding upon arrival. Extra pillow top auto-inflate air bed for 7th guest in Codori parlor.
Relax on the 2nd floor screened in porch, or enjoy your favorite drink on the back yard porch. Bring your own wine and keep it that perfect temperature in our wine chiller located in the separate media room (complete with 46” TV and DVD player to watch your favorite Civil War movies). You can be chef for the day and prepare dinner in our modern kitchen, complete with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances, or treat yourself to grilling your favorite barbecue in the backyard (seasonal).
Off-street parking is extremely convenient in the three bay garage which sets on the same location of the original carriage barn along Race Horse Alley.
We want you to enjoy your stay at the Historic York Street Manor every time you visit Gettysburg.
