Meet The Host

My husband and I are huge history buffs and love walking the Gettysburg battlefield. When the opportunity to purchase the cottage came about we jumped on it. Now we have a place to retreat to in a town which is special to us.

We have a small driveway to the left of the cottage large enough for 2 vehicles. We regularly park an SUV and pickup truck in the driveway. Should you need more room you are welcome to park across the street in the grass.

Please stop at the top of the driveway, not over it in the grass or sidewalk. We have a septic holding tank in the backyard which will not hold the weight of a vehicle.

Notes
This 114-year-old home has low ceilings in some areas. If you’re super tall you may bump your head in the stairwell, and on the ceiling fan in the master bedroom.

The cottage sits between two farms, surrounded by fields and across the street from the very creek which General Robert E. Lee, and most of his fighting force, retreated over on July 4, 1863. Because our home is in the country you may see an occasional insect inside, especially if the back door is open for long periods of time. We do have regular pest control, but the longer the back door is open the greater chance there is of insects coming inside the cottage.

The home is equipped with 2 outdoor cameras pointed at entrances for your safety and to protect our property. We utilize these cameras during off times to ensure the home is secure since we use this property exclusively as a short-term vacation rental and do not live there. Arrival footage is reviewed to confirm occupancy limits are being respected, and no pets are brought.
