About the property

Private, Well-Furnished 550 Square-Ft. Suite with Kitchenette and Outdoor Deck.

We are located at 1365 Herr's Ridge Rd., Gettysburg, PA, 17325.

Please note that, because we require sufficient lead time to prepare the suite for guests, we require all reservation requests to be made at least 48 hours in advance.

Please note too that we are inclusive. We welcome ALL guests!

Private, clean, comfortable, and newly renovated, this 550-square foot suite offers peace, quiet, and natural beauty in close proximity to the historic battlefields and monuments of Gettysburg. Guests enjoy the best of both worlds: we’re within walking distance of the Oak Ridge battlefield, National Park Service station, and Seminary Ridge, but we offer a secluded getaway when the day’s sightseeing is done.

A spacious deck with Adirondack chairs, patio table, and colorful flowers leads to a private entrance. Inside is an entryway with café table and chairs, perfect for coffee in the morning sun. A large mirrored closet provides storage space, while large wall maps display the action of all three days of the Battle of Gettysburg.

The self-contained kitchenette has a sink and ample cabinet space, along with all necessary appliances and conveniences—refrigerator with freezer, Keurig coffeemaker (with ingredients provided), microwave oven, bowls, plates, and silverware. (A hotplate is also provided, upon request, for a small additional fee.)

The living area features a comfortable leather loveseat, propane fireplace, and large television equipped with cable, and a ceiling fan for added comfort. The bookcase is stocked with Civil War books and literature of local interest, and has cabinets and drawers for clothes and other personal items. Nearby is a writing desk with lamp, and an MP3 player usable with iPhones, iPods, or disc players. The suite is also equipped with free wi-fi.

The full bathroom includes a combination tub and shower, a large vanity and mirror, and a new toilet. Towels are provided, with a discount given for guests who bring their own. There is also a hair dryer for guest use.

The bedroom, admitting morning light through east-facing windows, features French doors that may be closed or left open. The bed is a spacious and comfortable queen-size with a memory-foam mattress. There are matching nightstands and reading lamps, an alarm clock, and a bureau and mirror. (Linens are provided, with a discount given for those guests who bring their own.) The bedroom also contains a heating-cooling unit for personalized climate control. Inflatable mattresses of different sizes are available upon request for additional guests.

We have world-class cuisine within walking distance. At the end of our street is the impeccable menu of Herr Tavern & Publick House, and the first-rate American food of Sharpshooters Grille. Just beyond them is Sidney’s Willoughby Run, an unforgettable experience in fine dining. (To pamper yourself during your stay, stop in at the Gettysburg Day Spa, right next door to Sidney's.)

This suite comfortably accommodates individuals, couples, and families. It is available for stays of at least two (2) nights; total length of stay is negotiable. Stays of at least five (5) nights will be charged the discounted flat “weekly” rate.

We don't permit pets, smoking, or firearms of any kind on the premises.

Our preferred check-in time is 3 pm; preferred check-out is 12 pm. But we're flexible on both, depending on the needs of guests.

All reservations must be made at least 48 hours prior to the beginning of the stay. Rates are seasonal.

My husband and I wanted to tour Gettysburg and I found this place on line. We were not disappointed. The place was clean and very quiet and peaceful. Unfortunately, we did not get to stay the full week as we had planned. We only got to stay 2 nights. My mother took ill and passed the weekend we would have been away, so we left to be with her. Since we did not get to do everything we wanted to do, we would love to get back to Gettysburg someday and would not hesitate to stay at Five Horizons again. Thank you for the use of your house.

Very nice and quiet location.

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice stay, the memory foam mattress was very comfortable, everything was clean and inviting. We were greeted and showed around and then otherwise left to ourselves unless we needed something. It was made to be very private and that made for a great vacation. The location is very easy to find and had ample parking. The binder that tells you how to use the various items within the apartment was very helpful, as were the brochures for places around town. Very close to town but just far enough on the outskirts that you don't have the noise from the busy roads. Know that this does only have a kitchenette and the refrigerator is not very large. The only thing we didn't care for was that the loveseat was not very comfortable, so we normally sat on the bed or at the table. Overall we were happy with our stay and would definitely stay here again.

Five Star Accommodations at Five Horizons

  • 5 of 5

Devin and Kathy have provided a wonderful accommodation that puts every need of their guests first. The suite is laid out perfectly, including a guide book to help with everything, from the fireplace and TV controls to the location of items in the kitchen (including teas, coffee, etc., a nice touch!). We stayed over Remembrance Day weekend, which brought with it cold winds and sleet this year, so returning to our cozy home away from home to sit by the warm, gas fireplace was a real treat! And after a day of walking the battlefield, the memory foam bed was a joy to collapse into for the perfect night’s sleep! The property is so comfortable and inviting and it’s location off Herr’s Ridge can’t be beat – right at the battlefield’s first day action and still very convenient to the Borough of Gettysburg with all it’s shopping and restaurants! Devin’s customer service through the whole rental process was top notch as well! Thanks so much. We look forward to returning to Five Horizons for our future trips to Gettysburg whenever possible!
