Item Description

Gettysburg dinner/ Hotel Gettysburg/ Three Springs
This wonderful weekend is offered courtesy of one of our farmers, Ben Wenk of Three Springs Farm.  It includes two nights accommodation, for two, at the nearby Hotel Gettysburg. The hotel  

was established in 1797, is located in the heart of historic downtown Gettysburg, Pennsylvania and is walking distance to the battlefield, attractions, shops and restaurants. It offers superior service in a charming and ideal setting; rich in history and hospitable ambiance. Their tradition of hospitality dates to 1797, when James Scott first opened his tavern. In the summer of 1863, the hotel played witness to one of the seminal events in American history during a pivotal three-day Civil War battle. President Lincoln honed the immortal words of his Gettysburg Address at the Wills House, just steps away from the hotel. Nearly a century later, the hotel served as President Dwight Eisenhower's national operations center. After a careful and detailed restoration, the Historic Gettysburg Hotel once again welcomes guests to share in its rich legacy. 

Ben is including a $50 certificate to the Garryowen Irish Pub , where Ben plays in his band most Thursday nights. He wouldn't want you to leave his neighborhood without visiting the farm so this item also includes a late afternoon/evening Saturday farm tour!


Special Instructions

Please make arrangements for this item with Ben at Three Springs Fruit Farm. Date to be mutually agreed upon based on availability at the hotel. Transporation not included.
