Description of the Washington vacation home rental
Lovely split level home with four levels offers spacious living in a quiet location and provides a wonderful atmosphere for family and friends. And, it is only six miles from downtown Gettysburg. You'll be close to everything, but able to relax here in a secluded woods on 11 acres. And, the Metro into DC is a 75 min straight shot from here.

Home is approximately 2100+ square feet with a big yard, garage, and two decks, three bedrooms, finished basement and two bathrooms.

Enjoy your coffee on either the outside or enclosed deck. You may very well see a deer, fox, red tailed hawk or other wildlife.

Prepare meals in a fully equipped kitchen or cook dinner on the grill.

Spend some time on the Air Walker or recumbent bicycle.

Take a leisurely walk or a run on the lane and enjoy the outdoors.

Included are bed an bath linens, paper plates, paper towels, coffee maker filters, dish detergent, dishwasher detergent, dish cloths, dish towels, trash can liners, and basic first aid items.

Home is cleaned prior to arrival of guests.

Area Information
This home is a great place to stay if you are planning time in Washington DC. See details below.

Grocery store, Walmart, pharmacy, restaurants, gas stations and theaters are all within five miles of the house.

Hundreds of antique dealers and Gettysburg Village outlet stores within 5-7 miles.

The National Military Park and all of the historic attractions are just 10-15 min ride from here.

This location is great because there are so many things to do -- regardless of which direction you choose to travel.

Hop on the Metro just 75 min away and get off in Wash DC at the Smithsonian. Tour the museums or our country's Capitol building (hint - contact your state representative and you can probably get Capitol tour tickets in advance with predetermined tour time so you don't have to wait in line).

HersheyPark is 75 min drive.

20 golf courses within 20-30 min drive.

Ride horseback on the Battlefield - a lifetime memory maker.

The activities convenient to this location are almost endless!

This home provided a great location for myself and extended family to visit relatives over the holidays. We were very happy with the accommodations and the kindness and generosity of our hosts. On top of all that we saved money over a hotel and had the added convenience of a fully equipped kitchen to help our dining budget out. Nice quiet location but strategically situated for many tourist attractions.

I've been to Gettysburg six Novembers in a row and have stayed at three different hotels and even a B & B -- But this home easily beats them all. My friend and his wife, another friend and her son and I have stayed two years in a row and have already reserved for next year for a 4-day weekend at this beautiful home. We LIKE it! It is in a quiet area and yet not too far from all the sites a bunch of Civil War buffs enjoys to see. It feels just right, just like home. It allows "quality together time" for a small group of different friends/family that would not be available at a hotel. In addition to a nice gathering place for other friend in the area to come and join together. The owners go out of their way to ensure everything is perfect. We have many memories of Gettysburg and a lot of them come from staying at this home. I would give it my highest recommendation.

My wife and I have stayed at numerous bed and breakfast spots, but we,ve never found one better than Tall Oaks. Larry and Mary Anne knock themselves out to make sure you're comfortable, and the setting itself is absolutely beautiful. Also, they are starting a second business raising doves to rent at weddings and funerals, and it is worth staying there just to see these beautiful creatures and watch the two of them work with the birds. I cannot say enough good things about our stay there with them. It was fantastic and I would recommend as highly as possible for anyone looking for a great stay in a beautiful, peaceful environment.

Quiet Retreat at Tall Oaks

November 1, 2008

My wife and I stayed at Tall Oaks along with my sister and brother-in-law during the first week of Oct. 2008. Mary Anne met us at the house and was very nice, explaining sites and places to see in the area. We liked the literature about various sites to see which had been both assembled by Mary Anne and left by other house guests for us to see. The house was clean, spacious, and a wonderful place to call "home" during our vacation in Gettysburg. STAYING HERE BEATS STAYING IN MOTEL/HOTEL BY FAR. There are so many places within 90 minutes to see that this house makes a great home base (Washington DC -70 minutes, Baltimore-60 min., Hershey-45 min., York-30 min.). The house is roomy, (love the large kitchen) everyone had privacy (separate bathrooms). The washer and dryer came in handy, as it allowed us to pack lighter. Everything was clean, and well maintained. I would recommend staying here to everyone who wants to go to this area. We will go back. Thank-you Mary Anne.
