Charming Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much. Great location. Had everything we needed. Lovely rear porch and yard. Private and relaxing for morning coffee outdoors. We called the office about a couple of things and received quick response. We'd most definitely return.

We so enjoyed our trip to Gettysburg. We were there 12 years ago with the kids. Gettysburg is as great as ever. The house was perfect. The house was close to everything. We were able to walk to dinner, walk to the store, walk to shops. The house is conveniently located. We found the house to be very clean. We would definitely stay there again. Perfect!!!

Quirky little house close to everything

  • 4 of 5

4 adults stayed here 4 nights for a Gettysburg adventure. This small house filled the bill. Blocks from Lincoln Square so we could walk everywhere. Shower on 2nd floor has to be seen to be believed. Only small complaint is the ac units don't cool the bedrooms. Two of the nights were very warm and the units cranked away but sleeping was still uncomfortable esp. the 2nd floor.

The property was clean, comfortable and convenient to everything.

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our week in Gettysburg. My husband and I were traveling with another couple and this house was exactly what the four of us needed. The property was adorable and had all the modern conveniences but didn't lose the quirkiness one expects in a home of this age. If you happen to stay here – check out the door off the back patio. If we are ever back in Gettysburg, we will stay at the Cricket House with no hesitation. We only wish the weather had been better so we could have enjoyed the beautiful back yard.
