Overview
Cottage -
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 2
Gettysburg, Pennsylvania
This hand-made earth-sheltered cottage is a cozy creative energy-efficient getaway - surrounded by woods, and a rural landscape - some have likened it to a hobbit house. Most of our guest over the past year have been couples - many celebrating anniversaries, many just having a retreat to the countryside.
The cottage is located 15 miles south-east of Gettysburg on a 100 acre farm where the property managers live in an1848 brick farm house. Guests are welcomed to hike trails that follow two creeks, pass through woods and around farm fields. Or just sit in the gazebo and enjoy the private view of Bear Branch creek - often the attraction for wildlife. There is a fire pit next o the cottage for a romantic outside evening before retiring to your handmade chestnut/walnut bed. Be sure and read the reviews! Hope to see you soon.

This was our second time staying at the LRH, and we just loved it. Melissa and Chris are the consummate hosts, there when you need them, and not when you dont. The LRH is very private and you feel like your in your own little...More

About the neighbourhood
The Little Round House is in the rolling countryside of north-central Maryland about 15 miles southeast of Gettysburg. The quaint little town of Taneytown is one mile away, therefore shopping and restaurants are very convenient despite the very rural feel of the property. Some of the local attractions our guests enjoy include the Civil War battlefields of Gettysburg, Antietam, Harpers Ferry and Manassas. Other attractions include Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Many sites in and around Washington D.C., historic cities of Westminster & Frederick, MD, hiking trails including the Appalachian Trail and Lancaster, PA (Amish country). Right next door to the site is the Adventures Paint Ball Park for those who like to participate in a non-lethal battle.
