“Unmatched hospitality, convenience and cleanliness.”
Reviewed 13 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

My wife and our two teenage daughters stayed Sunday through Thursday night with another husband, wife and two teenagers - 8 of us total. The house was beautifully decorated, completely furnished, appointed and supplied, and roomy enough for all of us to eat together, play games together and also find quiet spots to be alone if needed. The two full bathrooms were a real plus, and when we prepared meals we found everything we needed in the kitchen -- skillets, pots, bowls, utensils, etc. A real plus was the cleanliness -- when we initially arrived, my wife walked through the entire house and repeatedly commented on how clean every room was. We were also very pleased to find an abundance of linens, blankets and pillows. Really, the house was completely turn-key and usable. I would also add as others have that the house is located in a most convenient part of town. We walked to restaurants, shops and museums. Parking was very convenient, too.
Finally, I would add that Sandee could not be more gracious -- I was responsible for breaking several of her very nice glasses, and when I contacted her to offer to arrange for payment, she graciously and generously told me that there was no need to pay her for the damage! It was a humbling and wonderful experience dealing with Sandee from beginning to end, and we certain intend to return to this house when we visit Gettysburg again.
Oh, one last thing -- the grocery store across the street is a full-service grocery store with high quality food and other merchandise, which was a real advantage when we spontaneously decided to eat in or discovered that we had forgotten a bottle of shampoo!

“A Welcome Retreat"”
Reviewed 15 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

people found this review helpful

My husband & I recently stayed at the Gettysburg Retreat for a reunion with two college roommates & their spouses. The Gettysburg Retreat is comfortable, very clean, and attractively decorated with rustic country items. It is spacious with three bedrooms and a bath upstairs plus a downstairs bedroom and bath. The kitchen is large and the dining table large enough to accommodate a group of 6-10 guests. The small porch attached to the house allows for a private setting with 2 benches and a small table -- perfect for pre-dinner drinks
and conversation. The Retreat is located near the historic downtown area, Kennie's Market, and the Segway Tour office. Sandee has supplied many Civil War books and videos to enhance the guests' stay. The six of us enjoyed the house and our stay in Gettysburg.

I really enjoyed our stay here - great location, cool/lovely house, very well-equipped and comfortable. I liked the "in house book store" idea, the patio and the 3-season room.

“Fabulous Vacation!!!!!!!”

We traveled with my daughter, son-in-law and 3 grandchildren, ages 10, 8, and 5. My husband and I have been to Gettysburg 7 times. We have stayed in all sorts of motels and hotels. This was, by far, the best place we stayed. The kitchen is well-equipped, the bedrooms are very comfortable, and the living room is spacious! This is definitely a "home away from home." TVs in all bedrooms and living room, WIFI, loads of towels, laundry room..... There is a supermarket across the street and the house is within walking distance of the square. Sandee the owner is very accomodating and has thought of EVERYTHING you could possibly need! This was the introduction to Gettysburg and its charms for our grandchildren. They are enchanted! We loved it and hope to return again!!!!!!1

We absolutely enjoyed our stay here. The house was extremely clean, beds were very comfortable, and the showers had great water pressure. When we first arrived we were greeted with goodies on the kitchen table, which my girls enjoyed. We all loved the decor especially the hardwood floors. The house is walking distance from the main circle with a supermarket right across the street. First floor has a bedroom and a full bath which is great for people who cannot do stairs. My family will definitely stay here again.
