About this listing
Our home is a restored 1830's log house, located on the historic Clear Springs Mill property, a National Historic Register site. Not to worry... you'll enjoy all modern amenities, including A/C and Wifi. The guest suite has a semi-private entrance and includes a large sitting area, small kitchenette space (coffee brewer, toaster, mic, fridge etc) and private bath. Fridge is stocked with juices, milk, etc. A second floor loft, accessed from the sitting room, provides sleeping space if you have an additional family member traveling with you.
The 6 acre property includes a restored 1880's grist mill, and 1809 sawmill - used for workshop and studio space. And a couple sheep that let us all know when they're hungry. We are definitely in the country. The small town of Dillsburg (grocery stores and restaurants) is about 5 miles up th road. We're a 20 minute drive to Gettysburg or Carlisle; about 30 minutes to Harrisburg.
We accept bookings of 2 nights or more. If there is a third family member traveling with you and you wish to use the single bed in the loft, there is a $7 added charge per night.
IF YOU HAVE NOT TAKEN TIME TO COMPLETE YOUR AIRBnB PROFILE PAGE, PLEASE TAKE A FEW MOMENTS TO DO THAT BEFORE REQUESTING A BOOKING. This is particularly important if you do not yet have any reviews from prior hosts. We really DO read those things - it's one of the things we appreciate about the ABnB system.
We do not take reservations more than 6 months in advance of the dates in question. We cannot accomodate pets.
Smoking is not permitted. Traveling pets are not permitted. Due to the nature of the space (upstairs loft), any accompanying child should be old enough to understand safety issues... we don't want anyone falling down the ladder in the guest suite in the middle of the night! The upstairs loft is not suitable for the elderly.
This is a quiet country setting. We value that, and assume our guests will value it also.
