The David Stewart Farm is located in historic Gettysburg, PA. The farmhouse & barn were used as a civil war field hospital immediately after the Battle of Gettysburg. Located 4 miles from the center of town, it's an easy drive to the battlefields, local attractions and local restraurants. Baltimore is about 1 hour away and Washington, DC is 1 1/2 hours. You will be staying in a large sunny room with a queen-size bed and have your own private bathroom (shower, no tub). There is a second smaller bedroom (with 2 twin beds) that can be used if you have 3 or 4 people in your group. The kitchen and family room will be shared with me and my pets - currently 1 large dogs and 6 cats. They do have the run of the house so if you do not like pets or are allergic to or afraid of animals, this is probably not the best place for you. (There are many other great Airbnb places to stay in Gettysburg that are pet free.) There is a large deck and big backyard (100 acres) for you to hang out if the weather permits. WiFi is available. I will be your only "living" host, but there are many others who reside with me. They have lived at the farm for many many years, some for hundreds of years. Yes, the house is haunted, but they are all friendly! I have been here for 36 years and have lots of interesting stories that I'd be happy to share with you if you are interested. I own a fitness center so as my guest you will have a free pass to workout while staying with me.
“There isn’t a single thing I would change about our stay at this amazing home. Stephanie made us feel so comfortable and welcomed while also allowing the space to feel like a private hotel as well. The stories she shared about the history of the home were so fascinating to listen to. My friends and I had a wonderful time and would stay again in a heartbeat if we were in the area! We will all miss her cat mamma a little extra at night now lol I would recommend this place to my family,closest friends, and strangers alike. You will not be disappointed!”
Less than a mile from the Appalachian Trail, the dog-friendly Jewel Vinsota guesthouse is the perfect get away to explore nature or your artistic leanings. The house is full of original artwork, hand-crafted details, and books on art and architecture. Wander the grounds and find sculpture, ponds, and trails through the woods. Want to hike the entire 40-mile length of Maryland on the Appalachian Trail? Start and end at the Jewel Vinsota and we can drop you off and pick you up.
“This place is a wonderful, rural getaway close to great hiking, beautiful state parks, wineries, & farmstands. Sarah & David are welcoming but respectful of privacy. The house is much bigger than it looks in the pictures. And the amenities are the best I’ve ever seen (and we’ve stayed at a LOT of AIRBNB’s). Bring an eye mask if you like to sleep in... the beautiful windows let in a ton of light. Traveling with little kids? This place probably isn’t for kids under 5. Definitely not for infants & toddlers. Sound travels in the open floor plan and it’s very bright for nap time. Also, there’s a lot of amazing art/artifacts that the adults loved. However, we spent a lot of time trying to keep our kids away from all the cool/fragile/sharp/valuable stuff. Leave your kids with someone else and come for a getaway. That’s our plan for next time.”
Our guesthouse is in a rural setting, an easy 3 mile drive to the Gettysburg National Military Park and 5 miles to the center of town. It is a self-contained building, separate from the main house on the property.
“A+ Airbnb, would definitely stay here again. Cute place, nice location just a few miles outside of town, and clearly they are paying attention to Airbnb's COVID cleaning protocol. The property has a lovely little garden and lots of places to sit outside and watch the fireflies at night, which are plentiful. The best part: Delightful hosts who went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. We mentioned that we were looking forward to building a fire, and Bill set up kindling, newspapers, and logs for us so it was all ready to go when we arrived. We didn't cook, but could have, because the kitchen was well stocked with coffee, tea, homemade muffins, cereal, peanut butter, etc. Bill and Lisa had great food and activity recommendations for us in town, too.”
