This 1860 house was moved and restored with added Baths, bedrooms and kitchen. The copper roof, wonderful architectural details plus lovely decorating make this a delight for our guests. We have rented for eight years, and guarantee you will be thrilled with your stay. This is a house for the discriminating traveler, who expects the best. We maintain the property at the highest level- you will not be disappointed. Although a log house, this is not a "rustic" property!!

The space

Great reunion house or business retreat. Small weddings possible- 25 guests or less- small fee (negotiable) for wedding set ups, etc. The house is large enough ( three levels) to spread out and enjoy quiet spaces. We have children's toys and a Pack- and Play, plus games for all. We feature an eclectic book collection for all tastes.
The house is a very old floor plan- you have to go through one BR to access the second BR on the lower floor and the upper floor- this doesn't present any problems for most groups. Beds are all fitted with high end mattresses which are covered in a sanitary wrap for your protection. We want you to feel as though you are in a very upper end accommodation. We have a fire pit for fun and a lovely deck on the rear of the house that is literally in the woods.

Guest access

Entire house (2300 sq. ft.) accessible, not handicap set-up. There are four steps from the parking area to the main level.

Interaction with guests

wer'e just 1500 feet away on the farm- we try to meet and greet all our guests and solve any problem that arises. This is a very important part of our retirement plan, and we are very serious about providing our guests with an enjoyable, private stay. My host picture is my granddaughter- much prettier than an old man!!

Other things to note

there are plenty of things to do in this area- Gettysburg, Pa., DC, skiing, golf, antiquing, Frederick Md. 15 miles- lovely town, great food. We have farm animals for the kids! The beautiful State and National Parks ( Catoctin) are minutes away- great hiking, swimming, waterfalls. A family oriented zoo is 4 minutes from the house and fun for the kids. We have recently (2016) placed asphalt on this property driveway, and kids have a perfect place for their big wheelers.

Beautiful, well-appointed house that is rich in history. Very clean and comfortable. Perfect for a group or family. We were in town for a farm wedding and this was a wonderful house to come home to after a chilly night outdoors. Excellent communal space with beautiful light. I highly recommend booking this house!

Lovely home with everything you need for a peaceful get away! The toys for the kids were very appreciative! The kids enjoyed a walk to say hi to the horses and goats! Bill was great about checking in, while respecting our privacy. The internet did not work, but the did have the provider out to repair. Thank you!

Williams house is a perfect example of a house that has been lovingly restored to its original state but with the additions of some lovely comforts. It has lovely bathrooms, the kitchen and dining areas are exactly as you would expect in this standard of holiday let. The bedroom configuration could be a problem for a group that were not family, especially the upstairs.

This is, quite frankly, an idyllic home and location for rest, relaxation and renewal. My family and I stayed here during a family reunion and it was a relaxing get away. We really enjoyed the fire pit and had the family over for a BBQ, which went off without a hitch, thanks to the well appointed kitchen and grill. The children really enjoyed visiting with the friendly goats, horses and sheep next door. It was truly wonderful.

The house is beautiful as well as the surrounding area. My group included 5 adults and we all slept comfortably in our own beds. The house has 4 Fulls and 2 singles along with 2 couches and 2 full bathrooms. The house is Very nice inside. We had about an hour and a half drive from Ronald Reagan International Airport to the Address, and about a 20 minute drive to Gettysburg. Our trip could not have been any better. From this address to how amazing the Battlefield was, just couldn't have gone any smoother. We met the owners on our last day and they were both very kind and offered us as much time as we needed to pack up. I fully plan on returning to the Gettysburg area again and 100% plan on contacting Bill again in hopes his Beautiful home is available.

Great house! So much charm and character! My group and I loved staying here. The living room with the gas fireplace was our favorite place to hang out. The kitchen was gorgeous and fully stocked. Beds were very comfortable with really nice sheets! Only issue was that it said it slept ten (4 double beds and two singles) and there was only the double beds and one single bed.

Response from William:
Thanks for your review. There are 4 queen size beds, one twin in the master BR and one twin in a Murphy bed in the lower BR (the brick room). You may have missed this bed- and we will mark it for future guests. (It looks like a cabinet) The house is exactly as described in the listing. We are readily available to answer any questions that may arise, since we live on the farm about 1000 ft from this house. Thanks again- come again!! Bill
