Make your Gettysburg "encampment" three minutes west of the GNMP battlefield along the very road where Lee & Longstreet planned Day 2's attack & where Hood's & McLaws' Divisions started south to launch it. Your host, a GNMP volunteer, will provide the historical & logistical guidance you need for an unforgettable visit.
The guest bedroom and bathroom are private, located at the end of the main floor, while my bedroom and bath are upstairs. Your bedroom has a dresser, a double bed with new mattress (probably comfortable for just one person), and a Tempurpedic twin-size bed great for sleeping or sitting.
For breakfast I am glad to share coffee, fruit, juice, cereal, and milk that I usually have on hand. If you want a fancier way to start your day, there are several excellent breakfast spots within an easy one to two mile drive.
Interaction with guests
I look forward to helping you maximize your visit to Gettysburg by sharing my enjoyment of the town and my knowledge of the battle and the national military park.
Nothing unusual-- no smoking, no pets, no loud music, shoes off in the breezeway. Beyond that, just common courtesy!
I am an investment adviser, former teacher, and Civil War enthusiast. After growing up in Indiana and raising my family in Massachusetts, I moved to Gettysburg following many rewarding visits over the years. The place is magical--a small, charming college town with friendly people, a wide variety of great restaurants and shops, many cultural opportunities, and most important, a spectacular national park with unrivaled historic significance. If you have never visited here, you will be overwhelmed by the size and beauty of the park and awed by the hundreds of monuments that stand as silent sentinels to commemorate the brave men who fought on this hallowed ground. History is nowhere more alive than here, and I would love to help you get started along the rewarding path toward understanding and appreciating the many layers of our nation's greatest battle. I hope you will come and explore and catch the "Gettysburg bug."
