Welcome to the Rested Rooster! If you have ever wondered what it would be like to stay in a historic farmhouse but with modern amenities here is your chance. The Rested Rooster is the entire lower suite of The Farmhouse in Cashtown Pa just minutes outside of Gettysburg Pa. This charming extremely spacey three bedroom has been completely renovated inside and furnished with many luxuries.
The Rested Rooster is the entire downstairs of the Historic home that is over 100 years old. The loft is the Happy Hen. While we did a complete renovation in the spring of 2016 modernized what we could while still keeping the original charm. The floors are the original and with that come creeks here and there, we think of it as a reminder of the age.
Historic homes back then had minimal ways to sound proof between floors and ceilings due largely to the design. You will find that noise travels and we ask our guests to be respectful and understanding to the nature of the house. We would describe it as sound from an upstairs apartment that has their walk up stairwell by your back door. To aid with this we do offer earplugs for very light sleepers and a sound machine.
The Historic home sits one block back from a main intersection for orchard trucks and traffic going either to HWY 81 or HWY 15 with that means there will be road noise. The location also makes it extremely convenient to get around.
The farmhouse as with the majority of historic homes sits very close to the front road where apple trucks go by before stopping at the intersection one block away. We have a fence on the edge of the front yard however during apple harvest season road noise can be loud during working hours. We provide ear plugs and sound machines for extra comfort.
The kitchen is wonderfully large enough to host your family for indoor dining if you so choose to do so or bring home your leftovers from your local dining experiences. Enjoy a cup of joe from the Kurieg or tea from the stove. We also have the standard coffee maker.
The Rested Rooster is centrally located in Gettysburg's wine region and orchards. We are conveniently located close to historic Gettysburg, parks, Liberty ski resort and many other fun activities. Hosting couples, business travelers, families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets).
We do except dogs for a flat fee of $50 for the first dog and to add one more dog there is an additional flat $25 fee.
With that comes our Top Dog Package. Obviously while you're enjoying your vacation rental your pup should not have to Ruff it! We provide to use while you're at the rental a sanitized pet bed, dry shampoo, Paw wipes, pet waste bags, designer ood and water bowls, pet placemat, microfiber pet towels, and our signature endless treat jar.
The rental and property are treated for fleas and ticks.
A portion of the pet fee is donated to our local ASPCA
We do allow nightly rates however due to dates and booking capacity we reserve the right to block certain days. Weekends are a minimum of 2 nights.
You will hear guests upstairs as this is an old farmhouse and sound travels.
