    About this property

    Perfect Location: Historic Downtown Guesthouse

    Historic vacation home in Gettysburg
    NO ORDINARY ADDRESS Built in the 1840's and newly renovated, this 2-level, 4-bedroom Italianate-style townhome apartment reflects the Federal majesty of the mid-1800's, and the individualistic expressions of post-Civil war Gettysburg. Street-facing windows on the main level are accentuated with stained glass, creating a feel-good rainbow effect in the common area parlor and dining room. Bedrooms on the first and second level pay tribute to the owners' family heritage. Take your pick from the Charles, Chastang, Earley or Hughes bedrooms. Like the people whose names they bear, each room has its own personality and ambiance. A major upgrade is the amazing chandelier-adorned spa bath that lets you know this is no ordinary Gettysburg address... This is The LaVerne Guesthouse. Located one-half block from Lincoln Square and three doors down from the historic Wills House, The LaVerne is within walking distance to dining, antiquing, shopping, and the theater. This guesthouse is appointed with all the basics you need to feel at home, including kitchenware, towels, linens and paper products. The property will be cleaned and ready for your arrival; however, there is no daily housekeeping service. Therefore, we respectfully request that you maintain the home in a neat and orderly fashion, wash any dishes used in the kitchen and spot clean when necessary. This is our second home in Gettysburg. We welcome only guests who are willing to respect our property as if it is their own. This is why we will rent only to families or couples. Please do not inquire if you intend to use our home as a “party pad.” We have a property manager who will respond immediately if you ever need assistance during your stay. LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION Your stay at The LaVerne Guesthouse puts you in the heart of everything Gettysburg is known for. Whether it's sightseeing, nightlife, performing or cultural arts, cinema, vintage or contemporary shopping, fine dining or artsy coffee houses...You can walk there from here! Leave your car in your private parking space and take a walking tour of the pre and post-Civil War era architectural styles in the Gettysburg Historic District. And don't forget to check the schedule for nightly performances or frequent art shows right in the neighborhood. Or, catch the free trolley for a short ride to the battlefields and visit the Civil War Museum. If you do decide to take a drive, visit the nearby Gettysburg Outlet Stores...or tour one of the close-by wineries. Whatever your itinerary, your stay will be in the perfect location. The LaVerne Guesthouse... a home of historic distinction.

      Fantastic Gettysburg Experience

      What a wonderful property to stay while exploring Gettysburg. You can walk to almost everything. Very clean and quiet, this upper apartment had everything you need for your stay. Would not hesitate to rent again if ever in the area. Thank you for opening up your property to all.

          Hidden gem in downtown Gettysburg

          Beautiful guest house in a great location! Will definitely book again next time we visit. Thank you!

          5/5 Excellent

            Great historic downtown location which we were able to walk almost everything.

            Great location and property! Roomy enough for 6 adults and 2 children. Bathroom off of kitchen is small, but upstairs bathroom makes up for it! Susie was very nice to deal with. Would definitely stay here again!

            5/5 Excellent

              Family trip

              We stayed at the LaVerne house with our two daughters and sons-in-law and their daughters (6 adults, a 3-year old and a4-month old). It was everything we expected. Location was amazing and the amenities were great. There are some cosmetic things: the downstairs toilet seat was loose so I fixed it, but the shower door handle and the handrail at the top of the stairs need some attention. Overall a great place to stay in downtown Gettysburg
