This charming and cozy second floor one bedroom apartment, which accommodates up to 3, is located in downtown Gettysburg within a five minute walk of major attractions, restaurants and the battlefield. We are located on a quiet residential street. Yet, within 5 minutes walk, you can be at the square where the action is or Baltimore St. where you can find ghost tours, carriage rides, and more....

The space

Newly renovated, spacious one-bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor of a private residential home. Still completing exterior finishing touches. The front is gray, but your side entrance is white. Apartment is fully furnished with its own private, full kitchen and bathroom with a tub and shower. The kitchen provides the option to prepare full meals. Kennie's Supermarket is within walking distance and the Giant Market - at the east edge of town - is a 2 min. drive.
A Keurig is available. Complimentary bottled water, house coffee and tea, plus individual creamers, sugar, and Splenda packets, and pastries are provided. Guests are invited to bring their own favorite Keurig compatible pods of coffees, teas, etc.
The apartment has a washer and dryer to be used at your disposal.
We have Wi-Fi available. We also have a Roku Stick. We pay for you to have Netflix.
Heating and cooling is from a newly installed central A/C unit and is controlled by you.

Guest access

Guests will have a separate entrance to the 2nd floor apartment. Yard is private, young kids at play, so the gates need to stay closed. That means you will have to walk around to access your apt. entrance from the front street, not through the yard. We do have a pet on property- a friendly gray cat named Marley.
A small, outdoor table and chairs near the apartment's entrance are available for guests to have breakfast or even cocktails.

The Top 'O the Stairs was probably the cleanest and most comfortable AirBnB residence I've stayed in. We really loved all the little touches Andrea had taken the trouble to put in place. Everything anyone could want was there and The place was very tastefully done up without going over the top, and it was also outstandingly clean! I especially loved the large, well equipped kitchen and comfortable bed. The location is also very convenient and close to everything (Gettysburg is a pretty small town) Andrea's communication was also very good. I arrived late at night and It was a bit tricky to find the house in the dark because I could not see house numbers on most of the homes on the street. Thankfully Andrea provides detailed directions and tips to locate the place as well as how to park in the back alleyway. I'm certain you will enjoy your stay at the Top O' the Stairs! I love Gettysburg and the rich history it is steeped in.

Andrea and Jesss’s spot was a great way to stay in Gettysburg. I’ll definitely stay here again if I return.

What an absolutely charming experience staying at "The Top of The Stairs." The location is excellent: close to 24-hour market, Walmart, restaurants, shops, museums, and the battlefield. The neighborhood is quiet, filled with lovely old homes. Parking available! The decor was wonderful, and everywhere were gorgeous oils painted by a family artist. The space is large and IMMACULATE!! Full size frig, stove, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, etc. Fully equipped kitchen with counter and bar stools. Great washer and dryer and lots of other amenities; too many to delineate here. The bed was King size and very comfortable. And, the couch was very comfy, too, which we find is somewhat rare in the B&B market. HBO, Netflix... We felt like we could move in! I was a little worried about the stairs with my arthritic feet, but they did not pose a problem. Rates were reasonable. Andrea provided clear instructions on parking and check-in very shortly after booking, so check-in/out was a cinch. We've stayed at many AirBNB and (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) properties in the U.S. and Europe, and this one is right up there with the best. Honestly, you can't go wrong with this outstanding rental! Highly recommended!!

We had an amazing stay at Andrea's place. We got in late Thursday night after some car issues, and I was so relieved to see how nice everything was and how easy it was to get to. Walking to everything was great, and all of the brochures in the house made making plans so easy. If its your first time to the area. I highly recommend doing the auto tour with the accompanying CD. We can't wait for our next trip back!

We had mixed feelings about this apartment. On the one hand it's a great location in Gettysburg - you can walk to a lot of restaurants, and the town's Halloween parade past very (very) close to this apartment on our first night there. On the other hand, this apartment is too small to accommodate four adults - it accommodates four people only if two of the four are small (and I stress small) children. Also, guests are not allowed to walk through the house's backyard to reach the parking space off the ally behind the house. Instead, guests must walk around the block. This would not be such a big deal except that: (1) the privacy signs posted at the entrances to the backyard might make you feel unwelcome (that's how they made me feel) and (2) this detour obliges you to walk past an extremely foul-smelling area that a nearby restaurant uses to dump its waste. Overall, if you don't mind holding you nose to reach your car, then this is a great place for two, and max three people for a short visit to Gettysburg.

Response from Andrea:
Sorry that these guests felt unwelcome. This is a private residence. We open our home to guests, but we do have small children and pets and have had difficulty with guests forgetting to close the gate which opens on an alley. This has generated some frightening moments for us. We use our backyard constantly and we enjoy our privacy as we give our guests complete privacy. Our posted photos of the apartment and dimensions of the sleeping arrangements should provide adequate information on whether our apartment will accommodate you. Personally, I agree it is too small for four adults, yet we have had many adult foursomes who report being very happy with these accommodations. We leave this decision to our guests who are traveling and trying to save money. We do not want to make that choice for our guests. We do want them to know that we will allow up to 4 people to stay. And again if guests read the dimensions given, there is enough information provided for guest to evaluate the suitability of our apt. Also, note, there is no extra charge for guests.

Enjoyed staying at Top of the Stairs apartment. Comfortable bed, bright lighting, nice kitchen, quiet location near east side of battlefield to Culps Hill. We walked all over Gettysburg.

Great location, great instructions and photos for our arrival after dark was flawless. Very walkable to restaurants. Very clean. The foldout bed/couch was a little too small so one of our kids ended up in the giant king bed with us. Would stay again without reservation with three people, but with 4 it is a bit tight..fold out was comfortable though. Again the place was super clean.
