The SpaceThis apartment is a separate, non-shared part of our home in a friendly neighborhood. Enjoy the serenity of a quiet space inside and out! The bedroom has a full size bed and a twin bed. Our apartment is always cleaned after each guest with Melaleuca NONTOXIC cleaning supplies which may be helpful for those with allergies , and clean sheets are a must for each guest.
There is off street parking available.
Great for families visiting Messiah college, exploring Gettysburg, or relaxing at Williams Grove speedway.
NOTE: we have a cat on our premises. She is generally not in the apartment and she is not given access to the bedroom. When guests are here she is restricted to the upstairs. Guest AccessThis can be negotiable and discussed on a case by case basis. Ask for what you may need! Interaction with GuestsWill be available to answer questions!

Other Things to NoteWe are beekeepers and have two hives in the backyard. We enjoy sharing our knowledge of beekeeping so let us know your level of interest! Honeybees are not aggressive and will not sting unless they feel threatened so it is quite safe to take a peek at the hives and watch the bees come and go. But if you are allergic, please stay out of the backyard!
We also have TV/ DVD for your movie watching in the apartment.
