“This place is a construction site. Misadvertised - be warned.”
Reviewed 3 October 2010

I wanted to have a surprise birthday treat for my husband and thought that these luxury cabins would be the perfect romantic getaway. Be warned - the website describes amenities that are not available yet. The place is basically, under construction - yet you still pay full price to stay. I believe whoever wrote the first raving review was hired to do so.

Although the inside of the cabin was clean and pretty - the outside was lacking in landscaping and lighting. There are construction and building materials stacked around in plain view. Piles of rubble and rock and wood. You feel isolated, not in a good relaxing way but more of a zombie apocolypse way. There was also a bad sewage smell coming out of the shower drain, and a few roach like insects that we had to kill. We never even got our breakfast basket. One of the bath towels was stained which was gross.

The place is also advertised as having a view of the battlefields...but in reality it is not- you are actually 10 miles away and you cannot see them at all.

All of that said, the place has potential, and I can see it being nice when it is finished - key word being "finished". Please be honest with your advertising and do not charge full price for something that you can not deliver. We are laid back people who have stayed at many places, cheap and expensive and we know what matters to a customer. Don't be surprised when you get an angry customer who refuses to pay!

I visited the Lodges at Gettysburg with 2 friends, both of whom are seasoned business travelers. Like me, they were enchanted with the idyllic setting and the rustic elegance of the individual lodges which sit on 63 country acres, half of which are pristine woods. There is a three-acre lake loaded with fish, and the Gloryridge Lodge/event center is stunning and huge. It has a lovely stone & wood exterior with views of the battlefield and Gloryridge Lake. The indivdual accommodations are spacious private cottages and are named after the states that fought in the Battle of Gettysburg. The cottages are furnished in Civil War period motif with decor evocative of each cottage's state. They feature kitchenettes, beamed ceilings, hard wood floors, outdoor porches, as well as the modern amenities one would expect iin an upscale lodging. All this and views of the battlefield, too!

The Lodges are only a few miles from the new $175 million Gettysburg Battlefield Visitor Center, the Eisenhower Farm, and the town. In addition, wildlife abounds. We saw deer, geese, red tail fox, hawks, and wild turkey during our stay.
