Overview

About the property

Private, Well-Furnished 550 Square-Ft. Suite with Kitchenette and Outdoor Deck.

We are located at 1365 Herr's Ridge Rd., Gettysburg, PA, 17325.

Please note that, because we require sufficient lead time to prepare the suite for guests, we require all reservation requests to be made at least 48 hours in advance.

Please note too that we are inclusive. We welcome ALL guests!

Private, clean, comfortable, and newly renovated, this 550-square foot suite offers peace, quiet, and natural beauty in close proximity to the historic battlefields and monuments of Gettysburg. Guests enjoy the best of both worlds: we’re within walking distance of the Oak Ridge battlefield, National Park Service station, and Seminary Ridge, but we offer a secluded getaway when the day’s sightseeing is done.

A spacious deck with Adirondack chairs, patio table, and colorful flowers leads to a private entrance. Inside is an entryway with café table and chairs, perfect for coffee in the morning sun. A large mirrored closet provides storage space, while large wall maps display the action of all three days of the Battle of Gettysburg.

The self-contained kitchenette has a sink and ample cabinet space, along with all necessary appliances and conveniences—refrigerator with freezer, Keurig coffeemaker (with ingredients provided), microwave oven, bowls, plates, and silverware. (A hotplate is also provided, upon request, for a small additional fee.)

The living area features a comfortable leather loveseat, propane fireplace, and large television equipped with cable, and a ceiling fan for added comfort. The bookcase is stocked with Civil War books and literature of local interest, and has cabinets and drawers for clothes and other personal items. Nearby is a writing desk with lamp, and an MP3 player usable with iPhones, iPods, or disc players. The suite is also equipped with free wi-fi.

The full bathroom includes a combination tub and shower, a large vanity and mirror, and a new toilet. Towels are provided, with a discount given for guests who bring their own. There is also a hair dryer for guest use.

The bedroom, admitting morning light through east-facing windows, features French doors that may be closed or left open. The bed is a spacious and comfortable queen-size with a memory-foam mattress. There are matching nightstands and reading lamps, an alarm clock, and a bureau and mirror. (Linens are provided, with a discount given for those guests who bring their own.) The bedroom also contains a heating-cooling unit for personalized climate control. Inflatable mattresses of different sizes are available upon request for additional guests.

We have world-class cuisine within walking distance. At the end of our street is the impeccable menu of Herr Tavern & Publick House, and the first-rate American food of Sharpshooters Grille. Just beyond them is Sidney’s Willoughby Run, an unforgettable experience in fine dining. (To pamper yourself during your stay, stop in at the Gettysburg Day Spa, right next door to Sidney's.)

This suite comfortably accommodates individuals, couples, and families. It is available for stays of at least two (2) nights; total length of stay is negotiable. Stays of at least five (5) nights will be charged the discounted flat “weekly” rate.

We don't permit pets, smoking, or firearms of any kind on the premises.

Our preferred check-in time is 3 pm; preferred check-out is 12 pm. But we're flexible on both, depending on the needs of guests.

All reservations must be made at least 48 hours prior to the beginning of the stay. Rates are seasonal.

Quite location during bike week

  • 5 of 5

We had no idea when we booked our holiday that bike week was the same weekend. Our 1 bedroom suite was a nice getaway from all the traffic and noise. Devin was very accommodating when we showed up early and left work to let us in. He was also mailed several electronic items that we left behind. Highly recommend! Thanks Devin!

Close to battlefield and town. Nicely laid out guest apartment. Enjoyed sitting out on the adjoining patio some afternoons and evenings. Very clean and fresh, nicely decorated. Friendly hosts.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

The suite on Herr Ridge Road provides everything that you would need in a well-ordered environment with beautiful views from the backyard. It is a five minute drive to Gettysburg college where my workshop was. The hosts were helpful and unobtrusive, I am planning on staying there again next year.

Great getaway

My boyfriend and I rented this place for a long weekend and the place was beautiful. Owners are friendly and welcoming and leave you be the entire stay unless something is needed. I would highly recommend and return again!

Well appointed lodgings for visiting Gettysburg. Clean, quiet, convenient.

  • 5 of 5

My son and I visited the Gettysburg National Military Park for five days and nights and stayed at Five Horizons, the name of our rental. Our host greeted us and explained the pertinent details of the lodgings. The small kitchenette was perfect for our needs. I took the bedroom and my son used an air mattress in the main room (the host has one if needed as well). We appreciated the military maps framed on the wall for each day of the Battle of Gettysburg, as well as the various books pertaining to the battle and Civil War. Five Horizons, was clean and comfortable for us. We would recommend the accommodations without hesitancy.
