Welcome to the Rested Rooster Maisonette! If you have ever wondered what it would be like to stay in a historic farmhouse but with modern amenities here is your chance. The Rested Rooster is the LOWER suite of The Freckled Farmhouse in Cashtown, Pa just minutes outside of Gettysburg Pa. The entire loft, 4 bedroom is called The Happy Hen Loft, which is the upstairs half of the house.
The lower half of the house, The Rested Rooster is a charming extremely spacey three bedroom which has been completely renovated inside and furnished with many luxuries.
Experience Gettysburg’s Historic sites and wine country living and discover the joy of staying in an historic farmhouse with modern amenities just 10 minutes 7.4 miles from downtown Gettysburg.
Enjoy the inviting, relaxing, and warm ambience of our historic farmhouse suite, which we refer to as the Rested Rooster.
Located within minutes of Pennsylvania’s best wineries, we are centrally located for exploring wine country, hiking state parks, touring historic Gettysburg, and mountains in the near distance for skiing.
The Rooster is the entire downstairs suite of this 2 unit home. It has 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, with art, antiques and comfortable furniture, a well-equipped kitchen and all of the essentials for a home away from home. In addition to the house there is an outside area to sit around the fire pit or just gaze at the stars.
We do allow nightly rates however due to dates and booking capacity we reserve the right to block certain days. Weekends are a minimum of 2 nights.
The Rested Rooster is the entire downstairs suite of the Historic home that is over 100 years old. The entire upstairs loft is the Happy Hen. While we did a complete renovation in the spring of 2016 modernized what we could while still keeping the original charm. The floors are the original and with that come creeks here and there, we think of it as a reminder of the age.
Historic homes back then had minimal ways to sound proof between floors and ceilings due largely to the design. You will find that noise travels and will hear the upstairs guests entering and exiting and such. Most of our guests are respectful and understanding to the nature of the house. If you are looking to not hear the guests upstairs this is not the rental for you.
To aid with light sleepers we do offer earplugs for light sleepers and a sound machine.
The Historic home sits one block back from a main intersection for orchard trucks and traffic going either to HWY 81 or HWY 15 with that means there will be road noise at times. The location also makes it extremely convenient to get around.
The Farmhouse itself is located very close to the intersecting road as old farmhouses were built before the roads. There is a fence running along side of the road.
We do except pets for a $75 flat pet fee. No pets other then a dog, each additional is $25. With that comes our Top Dog Package. Obviously while you're enjoying your vacation rental your pup should not have to Ruff it!

We also in between each guest have a crew that comes in with black lights to check over all carpet and floors for any pet accidents The day of checkout.

Other things to note
This Farmhouse is over 100 years old and sits on .75 of land. As with all historic homes it sits very close to the road as the roads were built after the home. That means traffic noise! During the apple harvesting time there will be trucks.
Please keep in mind historic homes are not the best with soundproofing. We have done our best to modernize while keeping the original charm. We ask that you be respectful to the Upstairs unit during your stay. Its much like a hotel room with neighbor noise.
The farmhouse can be rented as one unit (The Freckled Farmhouse) or as two rentals. The Happy Hen has its own private entrance and is the entire upstairs. The Rested Rooster has its own private entrance and is the entire downstairs.
All guests must fill out and sign a rental agreement. Our homes are insured with vacation rental insurance which mandates this must be filled out and returned
