Centrally Located

Lake Heritage is three minutes from the the Museum and Visitor Center at Gettysburg National Military Park, six minutes from shopping along Route 30, seven minutes from the Gettysburg Town Hall, twenty-five minutes from Hanover, PA, one hour and twenty-six minutes from Baltimore’s M&T Bank stadium  and a little over 90 minutes from Washington, D.C.

It’s centrally located with transportation links by highway, bus, railroad, and airplane (via Harrisburg, Baltimore, or Northern Virginia) to anywhere and everywhere. However, the pace of life is slower than in the urban centers and the lower population density suggests “country”.

Life in Gettysburg

Most Americans know that there was a battle fought in a town called Gettysburg but they don’t know that it’s a great place in which to live, work, raise a family or enjoy retirement.

For People of All Ages

Whatever circumstances bring you to the South Central Pennsylvania area, Gettysburg has something for everyone. A list of the “must sees” and “must dos” would be long but it might begin with the shopper’s dream come true, the Gettysburg Outlets which are right across the street from the gate house and end with the Majestic Theater, a fully restored movie theater, owned and operated by Gettysburg College that features movies for the “thinking public” as well as live performances and simulcasts from the world’s greatest stages.

There is a rhythm at the lake and in town. The busy season runs from April until November and the slow season lasts most of the winter. The farms which are literally in our backyard burst forth with color in May and settle into a somnambulant brown in December. The rhythm of life is reflected in the lake, when snow falls, ice forms and the whiff of wooden embers is in the air.
