Why Suzanne Piper chose Chambersburg
In our search for a location near Gary's hometown, this property was irresistible to us as we looked for a property that was peaceful and scenic, had water, a few acres, historic value, mountain views and the convenience of downtown.
What makes this Farmhouse unique
The farmhouse has beautiful views of pasture land, ponds, and outside hardscape. The refinished 217 .year old floors add character as well as the 1 and 1/2 foot thick limestone walls. The original part of the house has the deep window sills, and the house has been furnished with antiques and modern day furniture. With the extensive remodeling, you will have all the conveniences of today, in a setting that brings to mind the history of the area.

A great home in a central location
For our annual weekend get-together, our little group found a lovely and cozy home in Chambersburg. Comfortable beds, full kitchen, easy entry, and Suzanne is nearby if needed. The house is very near a road, but none of us had any problem with noise and slept well. We spent a day in Gettysburg, a pleasant drive away. Several other destinations are not far away. They even gave us some "overflow" vegetables from their garden to take home!!
We enjoyed getting to know you and are so glad our home worked well for you. You took wonderful care of our home and we appreciate it. We hope you will come back again for your future get together. Thanks for choosing us!
It didn't take long to realize what a gem this home was. The location is very central to lots of amazing places. The home itself is extremely cozy. The beds are so comfy as well. I cannot think of any negatives. Thank you Suzanne and Gary! We will certainly come back when we are in the area!
We are so glad you chose us for your "last minute" getaway! Jen, your communication skills are so friendly, I felt like I knew you before you arrived. You took wonderful care of our home and we welcome you back anytime. Thanks for the kind review and we hope to see you again soon.
My friends and I were in the Chambersburg area to hike several days on the AT. Suzanne’s house could not have been more perfect.
It is conveniently located, well furnished and very clean. It was so nice to come back here at the end of the day and cook a great meal, hang out and enjoy the evening. Suzanne was available for any questions we had and she even shared vegetables from her garden.
We hope to be back in the spring!
Anne and her group were a delight! We enjoyed having them stay for their vacation. We would welcome them back anytime. Thanks Anne for taking such good care of our home.

We would welcome you back any time, and do hope you will return. It was our pleasure getting to know you. Thanks for choosing us for your stay. Suzanne and Gary
The property was impeccably kept and so sweet for our holiday getaway!
All the special touches from the Christmas decorations and tin of cookies to the extra cozy blankets on the beds were appreciated! The hardwood floors are gorgeous, the kitchen is very spacious for cooking and dining, and we soaked in the historic nature of the home. Our host Suzanne was warm and offered helpful restaurant suggestions and was available if we needed anything. We hope to stay at this property again. The outdoor pond area was also fun to explore! Great house and great area!
