Owner's Response: Thank you Jo Ann. It was a pleasure meeting you and your wonderful friends! Many guests fine packing for a visit to Bull Valley Farm is easy because the farmhouse has many household items all ready provided. Sheets, bedding, also all kitchen accessories, and a refrigerator full of condiments are ready for use. The outdoor fireplace has dry firewood provided and the Smoker/BBQ has propane ready to smoke or grill your favorite dishes.

Ken Johnson Rural Farmhouse Gettysburg, Pa

  • 5 of 5

Totally enjoyed the stay at Mr. Johnson's home. House was clean and well stocked, setting and location were perfect for a family Thanksgiving Holiday getaway...so appreciate Ken's kind and conscientious customer service....Beds were most comfortable and despite the age of the house, kitchen and baths are lovely and up to date....great first experience with a VRBO... nothing like an early morning walk on this property to shake down any stress and connect with nature and history...Thanks Ken...

Owner's Response: Many families who have relatives or friends not living close to each other anymore, find the central location near Gettysburg in south central Pennsylvania a perfect spot to meet and enjoy a reunion and at the same time have a learning experience and fun. With attractions in the area such as Hershey, Lancaster, and Carlisle make a visit to this historic part of Pa. interesting and exciting for the whole family. Also, winter sports like skiing, snowboarding and ice skating are nearby. The beautiful , warm farmhouse is restored, modernized and very comfortable with 3 full bathrooms. The kitchen is fully stocked for all your cooking needs.

great weekend

  • 5 of 5

5 adults and 4 dogs just spent 4 days at BullValley, not far from Gettysburg, our destination for sightseeing. Finding the farm and arranging our stay was made very simple by Ken (our SUPER) host.

The farm was great and provided all we needed. Some of the furniture, tho, needs updating in the living room and one bedroom. The bathroom and kitchen facilities well furnished and laid out. We had a

wonderful weekend and loved the whole farm ambiance and planned to return.

Lovely house, lovely setting

  • 4 of 5

Our family of six had an easy stay here. We were in town for a family reunion and this house was terrific for our kids (ages 3-8). The kitchen is well equipped and Biglerville is close enough to get the food we needed during our stay.
