Your own private Hobbit Hut in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

OUTSTANDING!! If you are looking for a home away from home, in perfect location for Gettysburg, this is it. I jokingly called it a Hobbit Hut because it’s a a small quaint house with beautiful fully fenced in back yard and porch, with a lot of Ivy like vegetation around it.

Inside there is much more room than you will initially expect.

Exceptionally clean, organized, with a great welcome package waiting on the kitchen table when you first walk in. The upstairs is spacious and a great place to hang out with couches, a large flat screen TV, Down stairs has a nice lay out with a full bedroom ans kitchen.

The staff, host and hostess were over the top in their professionalism, accesability, politeness, and knowledge of all things Gettysburg! I would highly recommend the Cricket House to anyone.

Parking can be an issue in Gettysburg but you don’t have to worry as the “Cricket House” has its own three car wide driveway.

I can’t say enough good things about this little quiet house on the edge of town. We definitely plan on returning to see more of Gettysburg, you just cannot observe it all properly in three days. When we do it will be the “Cricket House for us!

A great place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

Super clean and awesome location. Great place to stay for 1 or 2 couples in downtown. The outside patio is a great for 3 or 4 people to hang out. Only reason it's not a 5 star rating is that the patio furniture needs a major upgrade. Overall we would definitely return if in Gettysburg again.

Cute place, good location

  • 3 of 5

On the positive side, the Cricket House was clean, comfortable and very cute. My husband and I stayed with my two 85-year-old parents so I thought it would be perfect for them to have the first floor and us the second. The second floor was lovely, with a nice little sitting area. However, the bedroom on the first floor had two steps down, which I felt was a falling hazard for elderly people so I would have liked to have known that ahead of time. Although it was nice to have an air conditioner on each level, both were very noisy. Location to walk into town and into the battleground was very good.

Great Place! Really Clean.

  • 4 of 5

This was a wonderful place for a two couple stay in downtown Gettysburg. Was clean and wonderful bathrooms, great outdoor patio to hangout. Only reason why I did not give a five star is the patio is awesome but the furniture for the patio needs a major upgrade. The plastic Adirondack chairs were really unstable & flimsy. Our group would definitely stay here again, loved it. Thank you Brickhouse in staff!

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!!!
