Easy quick trip into the battlefield area. Sorry our schedule only allows us to spend one night. Cookies are great!

The farmhouse made our trip to Gettysburg even better. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable and Eileen and her family were very helpful and friendly-it was a great meal in the morning-we would definitely stay again.
