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!

Living in History!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous location with an easy walk to local restaurants, shopping, etc. Staying in such an historical home was something you just can't capture elsewhere. We all laughed when we were enjoying a movie inside the home and could hear a tour guide outside explaining the history of the home. Owners are wonderful to work with and are quick in answering any questions. The only thing I would recommend to improve the safety of the home would be to install some path lighting from the back of the home to the parking spaces. It gets quite dark at night back there and the walkway is uneven, resulting in us tripping now and again. Overall, an amazing weekend in historic Gettysburg!!

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is in a great location with most places within a quick walking distance. The beds were comfortable. While the cabin does have some modern feel (appliances, wi-fi, etc.), it still maintains its historical integrity. Owner was great to work with.
