About the property

Private, Well-furnished 550 Square-foot Suite With Kitchen And Outdoor Deck.

We are located at 1365 Herr's Ridge Rd., Gettysburg, PA, 17325.

Private, clean, comfortable, and newly renovated, this 550-square foot suite offers peace, quiet, and natural beauty in close proximity to the historic battlefields and monuments of Gettysburg. Guests enjoy the best of both worlds: we’re within walking distance of the Oak Ridge battlefield, National Park Service station, and Seminary Ridge, but we offer a secluded getaway when the day’s sightseeing is done.

A spacious deck with Adirondack chairs, patio table, and colorful flowers leads to a private entrance. Inside is an entryway with café table and chairs, perfect for coffee in the morning sun. A large mirrored closet provides storage space, while large wall maps display the action of all three days of the Battle of Gettysburg.

The self-contained kitchenette has a sink and ample cabinet space, along with all necessary appliances and conveniences—refrigerator with freezer, Keurig coffeemaker (with ingredients provided), microwave oven, bowls, plates, and silverware. (A hotplate is also provided, upon request, for a small additional fee.)

The living area features a comfortable leather loveseat, propane fireplace, and large television equipped with cable, and a ceiling fan for added comfort. The bookcase is stocked with Civil War books and literature of local interest, and has cabinets and drawers for clothes and other personal items. Nearby is a writing desk with lamp, and an MP3 player usable with iPhones, iPods, or disc players. The suite is also equipped with free wi-fi.

The full bathroom includes a combination tub and shower, a large vanity and mirror, and a new toilet. Towels are provided, with a discount given for guests who bring their own. There is also a hair dryer for guest use.

The bedroom, admitting morning light through east-facing windows, features French doors that may be closed or left open. The bed is a spacious and comfortable queen-size with a memory-foam mattress. There are matching nightstands and reading lamps, an alarm clock, and a bureau and mirror. (Linens are provided, with a discount given for those guests who bring their own.) The bedroom also contains a heating-cooling unit for personalized climate control. Inflatable mattresses of different sizes are available upon request for additional guests.

We have world-class cuisine within walking distance. At the end of our street is the impeccable menu of Herr Tavern & Publick House, and the first-rate American food of Sharpshooters Grille. Just beyond them is Sidney’s Willoughby Run, an unforgettable experience in fine dining. (To pamper yourself during your stay, stop in at the Gettysburg Day Spa, right next door to Sidney's.)

No pets are allowed, but this suite comfortably accommodates individuals, couples, and families. It is available for stays of at least two (2) nights; total length of stay is negotiable. Stays of at least five (5) nights will be charged the discounted flat “weekly” rate.

Our preferred check-in time is 3 pm; preferred check-out is 12 pm. But we're flexible on both, depending on the needs of guests.

All reservations must be made at least 48 hours prior to the beginning of the stay. Rates are seasonal.

Five Star Accommodations at Five Horizons

  • 5 of 5

Devin and Kathy have provided a wonderful accommodation that puts every need of their guests first. The suite is laid out perfectly, including a guide book to help with everything, from the fireplace and TV controls to the location of items in the kitchen (including teas, coffee, etc., a nice touch!). We stayed over Remembrance Day weekend, which brought with it cold winds and sleet this year, so returning to our cozy home away from home to sit by the warm, gas fireplace was a real treat! And after a day of walking the battlefield, the memory foam bed was a joy to collapse into for the perfect night’s sleep! The property is so comfortable and inviting and it’s location off Herr’s Ridge can’t be beat – right at the battlefield’s first day action and still very convenient to the Borough of Gettysburg with all it’s shopping and restaurants! Devin’s customer service through the whole rental process was top notch as well! Thanks so much. We look forward to returning to Five Horizons for our future trips to Gettysburg whenever possible!

Perfect weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

A quick weekend getaway for my husband and I for our 25th wedding anniversary and this suite was perfect. Suite was beautifully decorated, immaculate and clean, quiet and peaceful area, but so close to downtown Gettysburg made it just a perfect weekend for us.

A Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This cozy rental was just perfect for our weekend away. It's close to all the attractions in Gettysburg without being too close. It was a quiet location with a pretty view from the backyard and yet we could easily drive to all the sites to see in just a minute or two. It's on the back side of the owner's home, but it feels very separate and you actually forget they are even over there! The inside of the rental was very clean and neat and very tastefully decorated. We liked that there was a little kitchenette too so you're not entirely dependent on always having to eat out. We were so glad we opted for this rental instead of a hotel room. It was just right for the two of us.

Excellent Gettysburg accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Our 2 night stay at Five Horizons was perfect for our visit to Gettysburg. Our suite was immaculate and welcoming. Bed was very comfortable. Suite is attached to main house, but Devin and Kathy totally respected our privacy. Extremely close to downtown. Enjoyed the civil war books to browse which enhanced our experience. We would certainly request to stay again on a future trip.

Perfect Gettysburg stay for two

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as described. Close to everything. Quiet, peaceful, clean, well furnished. The owner met us on arrival with keys and a quick tour. Before leaving she explained our stay would be private but not hesitate to call if we needed anything.

The property was very clean and well-appointed. Only 5 minutes drive to town and an additional few minutes to get to Gettysburg visitor center.

A quiet place to rest and renew after busy days.

We'll definitely be back soon.
