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".

Enjoyable stay!

  • 5 of 5

Kathy was a wonderful host. Her home was beautiful and our area was extremely clean and cozy. It was better than a bed and breakfast, since she had the fridge stocked with english muffins, butter, yogurt, juices and a nice treat of chocolate. Her homemade strawberry jam was very good. We also enjoyed talking and relaxing with her in her beautiful garden. Our stay in Gettysburg couldn't have been better.

Beautiful, with all the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying with Kathy and Jeff. The apartment is very nicely furnished, spacious, and will sleep six comfortably. The linens are luxurious and the furniture is very comfortable. The pool table is an added bonus. With the refrigerator/freezer, toaster, and microwave we were able to have breakfast before we went out for the day, which saved us money. Kathy has thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable. We really enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and just sitting among the kiwi berry vines and hummingbirds while talking. It feels like our home away from home while in Gettysburg.

Great Lodging Option in Gettysburg

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kathy's Kiwi Berry Farmette from July 17-22 while vacationing in Gettysburg. The apartment is spacious and in excellent condition which we found to be an great alternative to motel/hotel lodging. Kathy is a welcoming, helpful and considerate host who has the space well stocked with the necessities and then extra's as well in the kitchen area. She also has lots of brochures, travel guides, etc. to help you plan your days in Gettysburg and the local area. The location is just outside of town in a very pretty country setting. We highly recommend staying at the Kiwi Berry Farmette when in Gettysburg!

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
