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!
