Overview

About the property

Be our guest in a beautiful piece of American history! Built in 1790, this log home exemplifies a page from our history books with original wood floors, walls and beams. Located just 5 minutes walk from downtown, Lincoln Square, the home was once owned by Thaddeus Stevens and sits with a front seat view of where the Confederates occupied West Middle Street during the Battle of Gettysburg. The home, while keeping it's historic character, also contains modern conveniences (central air conditioning, recessed lighting, fully updated kitchen and baths, etc.). The Thaddeus Steven's house has 3 cozy bedrooms (upstairs, 2queen, 1full) and 1 & 1/2 bathrooms. Perfect for a couple, family or group of friends! Join us in this gorgeous historical home as you explore Gettysburg! **Please keep in mind the home was built in a time, when people were smaller. Ceilings and doorways are low. The floors slant and creak. The closet space is limited. Appreciate where you are--transported to a special time--imagine yourself in another era! Enjoy Gettysburg!

Loved Our Cabin Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying at the Log Cabin in Gettysburg. The place had everything we needed and had such a cozy feeling. I loved all the information she had on site about Thaddeus Stevens and the history of the cabin. My kids (3 and 1) really loved "our old cabin" for the time we were there. It was very nice that so many things to do were within walking distance from the cabin. We missed getting to meet Sarah in person and my only other regret is that we didn't make a plan to stay longer!

What a charming piece of local history

  • 5 of 5

We were in town for the Gettysburg Rocks weekend with our family. Sarah was a delightful home owner! The house is full of charm and history but also has modern amenities. We were all intrigued by the history and were hoping to experience something ghostly.

The house is close to town, within walking distance to everything. I would definitely recommend a stay here and we are hoping to come back again.
