Overview

About the property

1st floor of historic building (2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, garden, parking)

This charming Civil War era house is located on historic Baltimore Street in downtown Gettysburg. The first floor has been restored, with two bedrooms (queen beds), and there is a queen pullout sofa bed in the TV room, so the house can sleep 4 + 2. The bathroom has a shower. In addition there is a fully fitted kitchen, dining room, reading room, and a parlor with a gas-log fire. There is central a/c throughout. At the rear of the house is a secluded garden and parking for 2 cars.

The house is ideal for 4-6 people. You can walk to most of the shops and restaurants. The National Military Park (Battlefield) is two minutes walk away. Paranormal investigators might enjoy their experience here as well!

Loved the house and the location!

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we chose to stay in this historic Civil War house instead of a hotel. The location is perfect as we much prefer walking. The house had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The deck and private back yard are a plus as we always prefer eating breakfast and having coffee outside. We were very pleased with the comfort of the beds and slept well! Anyone looking for a great house in a great location in Gettysburg should consider this home!

Convenient House Full of History

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week long stay here at this house! My parents have been to Gettysburg several times but it was my first. They usually rent a motel room but I found this house and I prefer renting houses on vacation so I can feel like I am home. This house provided just that; a home away from home. The house was clean and had all the necessities that we needed and the location is fantastic! We were able to walk to so many places which was so convenient. The house is gorgeous and you can feel the history of it. We have been telling everyone we know about this house and would definitely stay in the house again.

Perfect location, right in the heart of the town of Gettysburg...perfect spot for our family of 6.

  • 5 of 5

This quaint, Civil War era home, was perfect for our family of 6. Being located right in the midst of historical Gettysburg truly enhanced our first visit to the area. This property is very clean, quiet, and well maintained. The 2 separate bedrooms each had a comfortable queen/double bed and a large pullout couch in a semi private study area allowed plenty of room for our 4 teenagers and the 2 of us to spread out and relax at the end of each day. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and would highly reccommend this rental property for couples as well as families.

This beautiful historic home was just as described.

Gettysburg is a great area. We really enjoyed the national military park and the downtown. Great restaurants, beautiful scenery. We could have stayed in this home for a week or more.

Civil War era house, close to key sites of the battle.

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a great location near Cemetery Hill. There are two bedrooms and a third room with a pullout couch. The beds are very comfortable. There are several rooms in the house with comfortable chairs. There is also a back yard and convenient parking in back.
