Imagine staying in a real 1809 Civil War farmhouse on a beautiful 30 acre nature preserve on the Gettysburg Battlefield behind Big Round Top. You will be 5 minutes from the restaurant and tourist district (3 1/2 miles). 

After you have had your fill of the tourist hustle and bustle, you will retreat to a beautiful country setting where you really can relax and refresh yourself. In the morning, you can spend an hour with one of our history presenters, enjoy a filling delicious breakfast, and be ready for a new day.

While Florence and her staff attend to home and hearth in 19th century fashion you can enjoy historic Gettysburg and the other sights of the area, knowing everything is well in hand for your return.
