Beautiful, large home in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

I was truly impressed with this home and property right in the heart of Gettysburg. We have a large family, so it's not always easy for us to find places that accommodate all of us well, but The Barclay House was an amazing fit. With the 4 nicely sized bedrooms, and 3 full bathrooms upstairs, we really couldn't have asked for a better set-up. And the main floor layout was just perfect for us with a breakfast nook in the kitchen area, and a full sized dining room, and a powder room, in additional to all the living room space! Really, just perfect.

The large/deep garage was quite a welcomed surprise!! We have a large vehicle with a luggage rack on the back, and were able to fit into the garage entirely, which was very much appreciated since it was raining when we got there, so we did not have to unpack anything while withstanding the elements.

The background is adorable and was the perfect outlet for our younger kids to go play outside when we weren't in the midst of any organized outings.

We very much appreciated the binder the owners provide in the home that included the details on the local walking-distance restaurants, and contact information for the battlefield tours as well as many other local things to do. I think I consulted that binder multiple times per day during our stay!!

The town of Gettysburg is absolutely adorable with all the local shops to explore, and it was but a 2-block walk which was truly the perfect location for us as not only could we get out and explore the town, but our teenagers were able to come and go on their own timetables as well.

I really cannot say enough about this remarkable house and property. If we end up needing to plan another trip to Gettysburg in the future, I will absolutely pursue booking this property again.

Great family stay in the heart of Gettysburg

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five thoroughly enjoyed our two-night stay at this spacious home. We had enough room to spread out, and a large kitchen in which to cook meals. The home is a stone's throw from shops and restaurants as well as the battlefield. I am recommending this house to any family or friends who are looking to visit this great town. If you're traveling in a group, why stay in a hotel when you can stay here?!

Perfect for our family

Obviously, we liked it. This is our second year of a family gathering for the Christmas Wreath Program. We'll be back again next year for sure.
