The Tate House vacation rental and lodging. Located in the 2nd block West of the historic square in Gettysburg, PA, this home was built by Dr. Theodore Thompson Tate in 1867. This double gable, board and batten cottage is a rare example of the Carpenter Gothic Style popularized by the noted Landscape Architect Andrew Jackson Downing. Dr. Tate, a prominent local surgeon, served with distinction during the Gettysburg Campaign as Assistant Surgeon of the 3rd Pennsylvania Cavalry. The first floor of this cottage is now a 1 bedroom apartment while the second floor boasts a 1 bedroom suite. Both are rentable from Sunday to a Sunday. Will rent partial weeks when available. 2 night minimum. Enjoy the ambiance of staying in a historic home while enjoying mansuite with living room/kitchen combo. Or if you have a larger group, rent them both!
Coming this Fall our guests will be able to enjoy a new private backyard garden for cookouts and relaxing outdoors.
Not a hotel person? What a great way to see Gettysburg like a local and get away from the tourist crowd. We prefer to rent by the week but will consider last minute weekends or extended weeks if available. This property rents from Sun-Sun. I am an artist and can help you with any of your artsy needs. My husband is a local historian and can offer advice on your historical quest. We would love to help you map out the ultimate Gettysburg vacation so please do not hesitate to ask any questions to make your experience the best.
