Love history?Love this house!

Looking for that in the past,but still all the conforts of home?Well you have found it! Wonderful size rooms,beautiful yard,great porch hard to decied were you want to be.Walk out and down the drive turn left or right you will see all the hills of history,small graveyard..who is buried there?a little further down the old war hospital and just up the road the tower so you will be able to witness what all of our heroes so many years ago saw.Look across the battlefields,here the men shouting?When you are ready go home walk the yard,if you are lucky you may find a piece of history yourself,many others have,maybe a nail,a small jar,or even an old tool all you have to do is look there is so much history right in your own back yard.Then how about dinner? Right around the corner and over the fielld a wonderful market,many prepared foods but also anything you can wish for,pick it up and go home and us the outside grill,the whole famile will love to sit at that long table in the dining room,I'm sure dinner will last well into the eveing with everyone speaking about all the things in the house that transforms them into the past.This home is where your family will once again come together as a unit that enjoys each other's company Everyone out to the battlefields,out for ice cream out for pictures,The town is just a short ride from the house,go by car or look into renting a horse,now there 's a way to go back in time,there are many tours all day long.At night go on one of the great ghost tours what fun they are.Our stay at this home went by so fast we were so sad to leave. I am sure that we missed many thing offered by the people of Gettesburg,all being so nice to interact with,from the food servers to the reinactment men and women.This is the way a vacation should be. A little bit of something for all members of the family.So next time you start planning your next vacation time with your entire family,a group of friends,or just a little getaway for just the two of you,think of this home,you will be sure to enjoy everything offered in town or the area of the battlefields,or just walking down the street,so much to see and do for all.When you return home,you will find yourself thinking of the wonderful quite the wild turkeys and all theshops you missed when you were in town,but most of all Ithink the house is the thing you will miss the most,We all talked about the house endlessly for weeks after we returned home,all swearing to return in the near future
