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.
The second floor which has 2 bedrooms and a bath is your private area. If you are only using one bedroom the other will NOT be rented out to a separate party. The downstairs living area is shared with me, my pets and sometimes my family when they drop in to visit.
Interaction with guests
The room(s) you will be staying in are in my home so you will be sharing living space with me.
Other things to note
Price includes 5% local and tax.
There will be coffee and tea available in the morning but no breakfast. Sorry! I start most of my work days (including Saturdays!) at 7 am so I am not available to prepare breakfast. Plus I am NOT a good cook!! You really don't want me to cook for you!!
This is a NO Smoking property.
The bedrooms and bath are on the second floor accessible only by stairs, no elevator.
Television is available in a shared area.

There are dogs and cats in the house. I do my best to keep up with the "pet hair", but it is impossible to get it all! So if you have pet allergies (or do not like cats and dogs) it would be best if you stayed elsewhere.

I've lived in Adams County, PA all my life but have traveled to many exciting places on this great planet! I love meeting new people and finding out about their lives and cultures. But returning to my own little piece of paradise is a great ending to any day!
I'm an animal lover and have always had (rescued) pets. Currently I share my home with 2 dogs, 4 cats.
I am really looking forward to meeting you!
