The General's Hideaway is a newly renovated vacation rental opened in late May of 2017 in Gettysburg's wine country.

As you enter the General you will immediately feel welcomed by an expansive open floor plan spanning the living room with ample seating for your whole family along with a pool table for extra fun.

Walking further you will start to enter the original structure that has been around for over 100 years. The historic wood walls and flooring have stood the test of time since the original structure of the carriage house. Decorated with eclectic decor and comfortable furniture you'll instantly feel relaxed.

The kitchen has a wonderfully large kitchen island that up to six people can sit at. The General has a full size refrigerator, microwave, full size four burner oven, coffee pot for 10, Keurig, toaster, and fully stocked glasses, wine glasses, and dinnerware.

The dining room has seating for 5+ and you can add in the leaf for the table and seat more.

The bathroom (located on the first floor due to the historic value) has a small stall shower with plenty of Egyptian cotton towels, a hand towel, and washcloths to use during your stay.

From there you can start your journey upstairs via an all wood stairwell opening up to the second floor.

As you take in the original historic wood walls you will be lead into a sitting room that houses a daybed, two 4" memory foam fold away guest twin beds if needed, and alternate seating. Each of the two bedrooms on this floor have a queen comfortable bed with luxurious bedding. We take great pride in our bedding and offer only the finest sheets and comforters along with pillows.
Think of it as a five-star sleeping experience

Each bedroom has reading lights, mirrors, suitcase luggage racks, and places to hang up your clothing.

The entire upstairs has all wood walls and floors. This gives the ambiance of a less bright tranquil appearance. We do have ample lights however this will not be Bright lights against white walls and ceilings.

We love for our guests to pack as light as possible so we offer shampoo, body wash, spare toothbrushes, razors, toothpaste, shaving cream, make up wipes removers, hairdryers, and much more!

The general also has a full-size washer and dryer available to use with complementary detergent and fabric softener with dryer sheets.

To make it more convenient we offer the highest speed Wi-Fi in the area and outlets that your USB cables can be plugged into

The General's yard makes up 1 acre with plenty of parking. The rental does sit on the corner of two roads. Their is a wonderful six person dining table outside with umbrella. We also provide a fire pit and Charcoal grill for hanging out at night under the stars.

The General is located 7 miles from downtown Gettysburg in the wine country which takes approximately 10 to 15 minutes to get to town. Hauser winery, Adams County winery, and Reeds winery are just a short five minutes away.

We are located one block off of Route 30 which connects you with Highway 15 or Highway 81 getting you to Hershey in an hour, DC in an 1 hour and 15 minutes, or to Landcaster. This intersection serves as a main traffic area for local apple orchard trucks.

The rental is located in the countryside however as it is one block off of the main intersection and very close to the road due to it being a historic property. There will be traffic noise.

We welcome your stay and look forward to hosting you in Gettysburg's most unique rental!

We do except pets for a $75 flat pet fee. That is for the first pet and then each additional is $25. With that comes our Top Dog Package. Obviously while you're enjoying your vacation rental your pup should not have to Ruff it! We provide to use while your at the rental a sanitized pet bed, dry shampoo, Paw wipes, pet waste bags, food and water bowls, pet placemat, microfiber pet towels, and our signature endless treat jar.

The rental and property are treated for fleas and ticks. We also in between each guest have a crew that comes in with black lights to check over all carpet and floors for any pet accidents The day of checkout. Any areas are immediately sanitized and deodorized. We do not allow dogs on any furniture.

We are major supporters of the ASPCA and many of our rescue farm animals on the property are from them.

My 12 year old son will have fresh organic multicolored eggs from his hens ready to use if you like for $5. If you would like more than a dozen just let us know and he will be happy to oblige as he has been selling his eggs for 5 years. He has over 30 hens that are handled and loved daily which he feels makes the eggs taste even better. Eggs can be paid for by leaving cash in his mason jar in the rental.

Thank you!

Hi, I started using airbnb back in October of 2014 in the form of a host. We now have a 6 bedroom home with a heated in door pool, a cottage, a cabin, a farmhouse that sleeps 14 and our newest house that opened May 26 2017! I grew up in South Carolina on Hilton Head Island. I left at 17 and traveled extensively finally to spend a lot of time in South Beach and New York City. Being in the fashion industry for over 20 years I have stayed at amazing hotels and have been fortunate enough to meet and work with designers from all over the word. I have incorporated both a passion for real estate and hospitality to share with travelers from all over with our cabins. They might be rustic rentals in the country but they are loaded with any and every luxury one could want. I love interacting with all our guests and help any way I can to make their stay 100% enjoyable. My family and I live on a retired apple orchard ten miles out of Gettysburg. I have a love for healthy food and a healthy lifestyle. My work and family keep me extremely busy along with a ton of pets indoor and outdoor. We love to make the use of all 30 acres. Hopefully we will start using airbnb places in our upcoming travel!
