Description

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Gettysburg - **New Listing** Log Home

Be our guest in a beautiful piece of American history! Built in 1790, this log home exemplifies a page from our history books with original wood floors, walls and beams. Located just 5 minutes walk from downtown, Lincoln Square, the home was once owned by Thaddeus Stevens and sits with a front seat view of where the Confederates occupied West Middle Street during the Battle of Gettysburg. The home, while keeping it's historic character, also contains modern conveniences (central air conditioning, recessed lighting, fully updated kitchen and baths, etc.). The Thaddeus Steven's house has 3 cozy bedrooms (upstairs, 2queen, 1full) and 1 & 1/2 bathrooms. Perfect for a couple, family or group of friends! Join us in this gorgeous historical home as you explore Gettysburg! **Please keep in mind the home was built in a time, when people were smaller. Ceilings and doorways are low. The floors slant and creak. The closet space is limited. Appreciate where you are--transported to a special time--imagine yourself in another era! Enjoy Gettysburg!

Quaint & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

We loved our family history vacation at this amazing home. It was small which gave us lots of together time. Located in walking distance to shops, shops, and more shops. This home has thoughtful extras to make you feel welcome. We will always remember our vacation in the Thaddeus Stevens' Log home.

Charming Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The house was adorable and Sarah was a great host. Three couples stayed there for a weekend when we were back in town for our college reunion and we couldn't have asked for anything better. Perfect location!

Lovely, historical property a delight to call 'home' for four nights

  • 5 of 5

This home has a lot of character, and was a joy to stay in. Since it was built in 1790, it was complete with hardwood, slope-y floors, low ceilings and doorways...this is the character. Located in the heart of downtown historic Gettysburg, the front windows would have been a front row seat to the Confederate's approach to Gettysburg on July 1, 1863. If you're looking for something historical and fun, this place is for you, puts you right square in the middle of events occurring July 1 - July 3, 1863. It doesn't get much better than that.

It has modern amenities, of course...running hot and cold water, indoor plumbing, AC/Heat, dishwasher, refrigerator, cable TV, wi-fi, etc...things Mr. Stevens never would have dreamed of. ;-) But these don't detract from the ambiance of the house. However, if you're looking for a five-star hotel, this won't be for you.

John & Sarah were exceptional hosts, very helpful.

Unique and comfortable approach to Gettysburg stay

  • 4 of 5

Sarah is a lovely, efficient, responsible host, running a unique, interesting option for accommodations in Gettysburg. The cabin is well equipped with everything that you need and in an ideal location to tour Gettysburg and its surrounds.

Quaint and historical

  • 4 of 5

My family of four stayed for two nights while we toured the battlefields. House is great for its history and to get a sense of the times that we were studying and experiencing. It was a special moment to watch the movie Lincoln while staying in a home owned by one of the movie's intriguing historical figures.

The house itself is a bit musty from age, hot weather and poor circulation. It takes some getting used to. The owner is a great host and clearly enjoys the history of the place and sharing it. The required departure chores are a bit much and more than I have ever been asked to do at a VRBO. Other than that, the house is something to experience while visiting the historic town of Gettysburg.

This home has been lovingly restored and is well equipped. We loved the location and the fluffy towels. Sarah was very hospitable. Thaddeus Stevens would be proud!
