Overview

About the property

Spacious Guest Suite With All The Amenities! Sleeps Up To 6 In Comfort.

If you enjoy the beauty of rural Gettysburg but want to be conveniently located to the Historic Battlefield sites including Little Round Top our guest suite may be the perfect farm stay, getaway for you. With over 1,400 square feet, the nicely appointed guest suite offers comfortable sleeping accommodations for up to 6 people.

Most visitors enjoy the scenic views, walks through the gardens or taking in a leisurely stroll after a day full of touring. Others come less for the history and more for outdoor activities like biking through the park and quite farm roads that surround over 5,000 acres of the Gettysburg Military Park.

In 2017, we have added an additional bedroom in our guest suite to accommodate up to 6 people comfortably. The main bedroom (see photos) has an oversize queen (firm) bed, our latest bedroom has two twin beds and the Murphy bed in a semi-private area (see photo) is ideal for kids or the grand kids.

Owners, Jeff & Kathy Glahn live on site as they manage a kiwi vineyard and gardens. Visitors have a private entrance and outdoor sitting area to make your farm stay a perfect getaway.

About Kathy

Owners, Jeff and Kathy Glahn relocated to Gettysburg in 1998 and soon after Kathy started a hardy kiwi vineyard on the land. In 2012 we decided to 'simplify' our life and built a home on the site. We are hooked on this location for it's rural beauty and easy access to the park, downtown Gettysburg and other visitor attractions. Guests are welcome to tour the gardens (when in season) and perhaps get a few garden tips from the head gardener herself.

Kathy purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Kathy chose Gettysburg

This Hospital Road property was originally part of the George Bushman Farm which served as the Twelfth Corps Civil War Hospital. This area continues to remain somewhat rural with acres of gentle hills and less travel country roads perfect for biking.

To either start or end your day, enjoy relaxing outside and take in the view of Big and Little Roundtop.

What makes this apartment unique

Sunrise to sunset, our home overlooks both Big and Little Roundtop one of the most frequently visited historic sites in Gettysburg. Little Roundtop is just a mile walk from the property.

Our guests enjoy the relaxing spaciousness of our guest suite and as many say "this is a perfect location".

Wonderful, beautiful property near the Gettysburg National Battlefield yet away from the crowds

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and hope to come back again. It’s close enough to be at all the venues in Gettysburg in minutes but in a peaceful country setting away from the crowds and noises of uptown. Compared to the local hotels you cannot go wrong with the Wild Juniper Farm and Kathy is the most gracious and accommodating host. Truly a wonderful place to stay!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect location for Gettysburg. Only a few minutes to the visitors center and the center of town. The house is clean and has everything you could ever need. Kathy and her husband are just a delight and always available to answer questions and help with ANYTHING. They go above and beyond with having the fridge and freezer stocked with food and drinks for your stay. I highly recommend. Don't even bother looking at other Gettysburg properties.

Beautiful grounds. Hospitable host. Lots of special touches to make us feel welcomed.

  • 5 of 5

Thanks for all the information about Gettysburg. Loved the pool table and homemade jam. Couldn’t be better situated to Gettysburg battlefields and the town, yet still surrounded by farmland and beautiful greenery. Kathy thinks of all the little things you need to make it a home away from home. So enjoyed our stay here!

Very Accommadating!

  • 5 of 5

The place was clean and inviting. Kathy thought of everything and provided the little touches that you don't find in many rentals. They also provided a pass that gave you free access to several activities at the visitor's center. They even have a nice area with a fire pit to relax outside in the evenings. I would defiantly recommend the Kiwi Berry Farmette! Thanks!
