About the property

Spacious Guest Suite With All The Amenities! Sleeps Up To 6 In Comfort.

If you enjoy the beauty of rural Gettysburg but want to be conveniently located to the Historic Battlefield sites including Little Round Top our guest suite may be the perfect farm stay, getaway for you. With over 1,400 square feet, the nicely appointed guest suite offers comfortable sleeping accommodations for up to 6 people.

Most visitors enjoy the scenic views, walks through the gardens or taking in a leisurely stroll after a day full of touring. Others come less for the history and more for outdoor activities like biking through the park and quite farm roads that surround over 5,000 acres of the Gettysburg Military Park.

In 2017, we have added an additional bedroom in our guest suite to accommodate up to 6 people comfortably. The main bedroom (see photos) has an oversize queen (firm) bed, our latest bedroom has two twin beds and the Murphy bed in a semi-private area (see photo) is ideal for kids or the grand kids.

Owners, Jeff & Kathy Glahn live on site as they manage a kiwi vineyard and gardens. Visitors have a private entrance and outdoor sitting area to make your farm stay a perfect getaway.

About Kathy

Owners, Jeff and Kathy Glahn relocated to Gettysburg in 1998 and soon after Kathy started a hardy kiwi vineyard on the land. In 2012 we decided to 'simplify' our life and built a home on the site. We are hooked on this location for it's rural beauty and easy access to the park, downtown Gettysburg and other visitor attractions. Guests are welcome to tour the gardens (when in season) and perhaps get a few garden tips from the head gardener herself.

Kathy purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Kathy chose Dutch Country

This Hospital Road property was originally part of the George Bushman Farm which served as the Twelfth Corps Civil War Hospital. This area continues to remain somewhat rural with acres of gentle hills and less travel country roads perfect for biking.

To either start or end your day, enjoy relaxing outside and take in the view of Big and Little Roundtop.

What makes this apartment unique

Sunrise to sunset, our home overlooks both Big and Little Roundtop one of the most frequently visited historic sites in Gettysburg. Little Roundtop is just a mile walk from the property.

Our guests enjoy the relaxing spaciousness of our guest suite and as many say "this is a perfect location".

Great location, apartment and hosts

What a beautiful location! Loved their kiwi vineyard, garden, cats and dog. Apartment was perfect for our family. The owners were delightful. We will probably stay there again if we go to Gettysburg. Highly recommend!!

Great for families!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our three sons (ages 4, 8, and 11) stayed at Kiwi Berry Farmette for a week to visit Gettysburg, Hershey, and DC. I could not have asked for a better place! Kathy has thought of every detail to make your stay comfortable and convenient. The suite was extremely clean and the beds were super comfy (even the murphy bed!). Plenty of extra towels, toiletries in case your forget anything, a coffee machine and tons of K-Cups (tea, coffee, hot chocolate), the list goes on and on. The location is perfect, too... just a few minutes from everything Gettysburg has to offer and about an hour from DC and Hershey. Kathy even started a fire in the fire pit and gave us complimentary s'more fixin's! (My kids say that was their favorite part of the whole vacation!)

I always try to leave one suggestion for each review, so my only suggestion for this place would be that it would be awesome to have a DVD player and a selection of DVDs to choose from. After a long day out, it was nice to come "home" and have the TV to relax with, but we don't let our kids watch a lot of cable TV, so DVDs are usually our favorite.

Kiwi Berry Farmette gets an A+ from us... we'll certainly be back next time!

Thanks!

Owner's Response: Sarah, Thanks for taking the time to write such a nice review of our VRBO accommodations. We truly enjoyed having your family stay with us. The boys are great kids and we loved seeing them get so excited about this trip. I did make a note to show our guests where the DVD player is in the event they want to watch a movie after a big day of touring. Your comments are a great reminder for Jeff & I!!! We hope to see you again when you come this way. Enjoy your summer. Kathy & Jeff

Excellent accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

Kathy went above and beyond to make our stay in Gettysburg relaxing and comfortable. Lots of space. Beautiful location. The steps down to the suite was a little difficult for my husband because of his knee issue. Otherwise, we would definitely recommend it!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review and comments on our accommodations and best yet the beautiful location! Sorry about your husband's knee issue and the stairway into the suite. Hope it gets better!

Perfect Location.

  • 5 of 5

My son and I stayed for 4 nights at this pleasant roomy location. The rooms were clean and the beds comfortable. Kathy left the place stocked with snacks, juice, and coffee. The hosts were friendly while leaving us space to do our own thing. We were down for the Gettysburg National Park Seminar and the location was perfect. You are close to everything while being outside the traffic in town. We travel to Gettysburg often and I can recommend this as an ideal location for your stay to visit the surrounding area. We hope to stay here on our next trip down.

Perfect In Every Way

  • 5 of 5

We had a family wedding in the Gettysburg area and chose to stay at Kiwi Berry Farmette with our two adult children. It was the perfect choice. Kathy is a wonderful host - so helpful--and the guest suite had every amenity we could want and VERY comfortable beds. Book it. You will not be sorry.
