I chose this lodge based on reviews that I read and requested a lieutenant's lodge. We arrived in the middle of the week and found The Lodges to be quiet, private, and peaceful. When we opened up our door, I found that the a/c had already been turned on which was great because it was sunny and hot that day. The cabin was clean (and I like things clean) and the queen beds were super comfortable. It was quiet at night; we did not have neighbors next to us in the corporal's quarters. Our deck did not have chairs and I noticed other cabins did, if I came back I would bring chairs or request them because the deck area backed up to woods and was shaded. I loved the location of this place because it was in the country and not in town; driving to Gettysburg Battle locations took no time at all. For dinner we drove a few miles and found a KFC, McDonalds and Friendly's not in town so it made getting dinner easy. I suggest walking around the property and checking out the pond. We brought our dinner down there and ate at a picnic table. I do wish The Lodges had a sort of gift shop, I would have bought a coffee mug, towel, tote bag, etc. as a momento from this lovely place.
