Jewel of a Cabin is a treasure and has been in our family for over 40 years. Located on five secluded wooded acres in the mountains outside of historic Gettysburg, Jewel of a Cabin is fully furnished with everything you need for a relaxing stay. The cabin is minutes away from two state parks, Micheaux State Forest, the Appalachian Trail, and three beautiful lakes. Experience history, adventure, and the beautiful outdoors in our comfortable and peaceful retreat.

The space
We love providing a peaceful retreat for our guests! We have owned this cabin for over 40 years and I spent all my childhood summers here. We love our cabin and take pride in offering a clean, serene space for our guests to enjoy. Jewel of a Cabin in located in the beautiful mountains of Adams County, PA, affectionately known as "apple country" because of the numerous apple orchards that dot the landscape.
Jewel of a Cabin is lovingly maintained and has two bedrooms (one with a smart TV), both with queen beds, and one bathroom. We hope you enjoy the vintage handmade quilts, art from nearby Amish country, and other vintage items that give our cabin a lovely, retro vibe. The eat in kitchen is fully equipped and open to the living room. There is a sleeper sofa and two super comfortable recliners for enjoying the beautiful view of the woods or watching a movie (we have another smart TV in the living room). There is also a large screened porch with plenty of seating and a picnic table. Outside is a grill and outdoor table and seating. In back of our cabin are acres of woods, nature trails, and apple orchards. It's very private and peaceful yet still a short drive into Gettysburg (20 minutes), Shippensburg (15 min), Ski Liberty (15 min).
Our guests enjoy hiking, swimming, fishing, skiing, bird watching, exploring local breweries, and learning about the history in Gettysburg and in the two nearby state parks--Pine Grove Furnace and Caledonia State Park (10 min). Both parks were the site of iron works and were built in the 1700s. Kayakers and fishermen will love Long Pine Reservoir (10 min), and families will love biking the Shippensburg Rail Trail (15 min) or biking on the Gettysburg battlefield. There are hundreds of miles of mountain bike trails in Micheaux State Forrest (5 min). Our guests also enjoy Liberty Mountain Resort (15 min) and Hershey Park (1 hour). Our guests also love the Apple Harvest Festival (5 min) during the first two weekends in October.
One unique aspect of our property is that not only does it sit on 5 beautiful acres with private wooded nature trails, it's located on a private one mile gravel road that loops to the main road. Across the main road is Pebble Lane, another quiet gravel road that loops around. This means that without getting in the car there are opportunities for walking or jogging. Road bikers will love all the biking possibilities on the quiet, low traffic roads in the area. We have two mountain bikes—one for men and one for women that guests may borrow. Please bring your own helmet!
Civil war enthusiasts appreciate the convenience of Gettysburg located 20 min from the cabin. In addition to the history, Gettysburg offers numerous shopping and dining opportunities. Check out the guidebook for some of our favorite spots.
There are also many wonderful local attractions for you to enjoy including numers vineyards and breweries, and antique shopping. South Mountain Fairground is 5 min away. Enjoy the summer carnival in early August or the fall Apple Harvest Festival the first two weekends in October. Yellow Hill Farm is 10 minutes away and is a wonderful place for picking blackberries, raspberries, and flowers. If you play golf, Piney Apple Golf Course is a 5 min drive. Ski Liberty is 20 min away.
