Had a decent stay at the Lodges at Gettysburg. Traveled on a Living Social voucher ... reservations and check-in were a breeze and the clerk at the desk was cordial and efficient. Lodges are a scenic, 10-minute drive to the battlefield - don't worry about any perceived distance.
I was slightly surprised with the Captains Quarters. The website was somewhat confusing - one page showed that the cabin could sleep 2-4, but the reservation page shows 2. There is no way more than more than 2 humans can sleep in the cabin without a rollaway bed ... as the cabin only has one bed. There's nothing that converts to a bed - like a sofabed or sofachair. In fact, there's nowhere to sit - other than the bed. Well, there is a small desk. So if you planned to eat in the room - you'd likely eat on the bed. The bathroom was fine, as was the kitchenette, even if the bathroom floor sloped a bit and the drain drained slowly, and the toilet flushed slowly. AC, internet, and TV worked great ... even if the TV was mounted a great deal of distance from the bed. Had a good night's sleep ... the bed was comfy.
The thing here is ... this place could be GREAT, rather than average. Why not add some landscaping? Why not upgrade the lake area? Why not add some furnishings to the Captains Quarters? Why not add some amenities around the check-in area, like a small outdoor gameroom, patio, etc?
While the stay was enjoyable ... I left thinking that someone simply saw an opportunity to make some money by building some cabins near Gettysburg. While there's nothing wrong with that, I think this spot would be so much better with some personality and passion - which is lacking. Right now, it is a decent place to stay, but not much else.
