Shriver Farm! Today, the 215-acre farm appears much as it did during the battle, but now has a 3-bed, 2-bath vacation rental home with a heated, in-ground swimming pool and modern amenities for a comfortable stay.

The home is nestled on a farm which actively raises a few beef animals, along with 270 acres of corn, hay, wheat and soybeans. Look forward to sitting on the porch swing or chairs on the home’s front porch while watching the cattle grazing and crops growing during the summer months. Here, you can imagine what this farm was like during the Civil War when it served as shelter for the wounded. Step inside to make yourself at home in 2,000 square feet of comfortably appointed living space. Inviting, old-fashioned decor, along with historical information and pictures about the Shriver family invites you into every room. You’ll love having a spacious, fully equipped kitchen to prepare home-cooked meals, and you can easily serve your masterpieces the whole group at the dining table with seats for 6. After breakfast, lunch, or dinner, gather with loved ones in the living area, which features a decorative fireplace, piano, flat-screen satellite TV, and plenty of furniture for the whole group to get comfortable. Turn on the TV, record player or play a tune on the piano while making light conversation with your friends and family. In the other sitting area, white walls, a roll-top desk, and more comfortable furnishings set the perfect ambiance for reading a book. On sunny days, head outside to the spacious backyard, where there is a private, fenced-in, heated in-ground, 18-foot by 40-foot swimming pool. Splash around in the pool or lounge on the side while enjoying the serene country surroundings and peaceful sounds of nature. Afterwards, gather around the picnic table to enjoy a meal in the beautiful outdoors. When it’s time to call it a day, retreat back inside to take your pick of one of the cozy beds to rest your head. The master bedroom offers a queen-sized bed, the second bedroom has a full-sized bed and the third bedroom offers a queen-sized bed. For additional sleeping accommodations, an extra person can sleep on the living room’s couch or cuddle up on the air mattress. -- THE LOCATION -- Whenever you’re not relaxing at the country home, you’ll want to explore the unique surrounding areas! The home is just about 10 minutes south of Gettysburg, where history buffs will be ecstatic to learn all about America’s Civil War. From the Gettysburg National Military Park and the Gettysburg Museum, to the Gettysburg National Cemetery and licensed battlefield guided tours, there are plenty of places to visit in Gettysburg! Sign up for a ghost tour or segway tour to make it easier to learn about and get around the historic town. The shoppers of the group will be happy to be just a short drive from the Outlet Shoppes at Gettysburg, while any animal lover will jump on the opportunity to visit the local horseback riding stables, just minutes away from the home. Also, just a short drive away is Liberty Mountain Resort, which includes outdoor activities, such as golfing in the summertime and skiing during the winter! While the guys are golfing at the resort, the girls can wine and dine at the many nearby restaurants and wineries. -- THE EVOLVE DIFFERENCE -- Evolve Vacation Rental wants your vacation experience to be everything you hoped for and exactly what you needed.

We rented the house for a weekend visit to Gettysburg. The house is just outside town and easily accessible, yet in a quiet and scenic location. I was pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness and great upkeep of a historic house. There was plenty of room...More
