From the Zillow listing:


Rustic charm in Adams County Apple Country, and only minutes to Gettysburg, for Civil War buffs. This vintage classic Craftsman cottage, with solid fir construction, is nestled in the woods of the Waldheim Club compound offering access to 23 acres of communal woodland property, including 500 ft of waterfront with dock- perfect for fishing, canoeing and kayaking on the Great Conewago Creek. Historic Dicks Dam once the site of a summer resort in the 30’s and 40’s, was then the epicenter of public seasonal recreation, adjoins the now Waldheim Property. The Commons area, comprised of 8.78 acres of the total acreage, serves as the hub of the property and is anchored by the 2 historic structures including the rustic Club House for your use to host group functions, and the Ice House, now used to store boating equipment. At the opposite end of the hub- each facing the commons- are the 6 individually member-owned cottages. Located in Historic New Oxford, mecca for antique shoppers, this unique 1922 Craftsman cottage offers 2 stories, wide plank wood floors, 1698 sqft with 4 bedrooms and 1+ bath. First floor boasts a generous, open concept including dining room with recently restored wood-burning fireplace, the adjoining galley kitchen and large fully-screened dining room for outdoor dining , perfect for taking in full views of the Waldheim Club Commons. Access through 2 sets of French doors leads to a second smaller side screen porch (aka sleeping porch), and finally, the large double front doors open to the spacious front porch inviting you to take a seat in a rocker and take a breath. The second floor opens to a spacious Great Room with open beams and cathedral ceiling from which there is access to each of the 4 ample bedrooms. Plenty of space for a board game or air hockey if you find yourself in the woods on a rainy afternoon. This cottage also includes a small shed. You have to see this one, and just in time for apple and pumpkin picking, or just watching the leaves turn. House cannot be financed as-is because there is no central heating system. Lender may allow with addition of baseboard heaters. A google search, a Youtube search and a search of the York Daily Record for “Dicks Dam and Conewago Creek ” will turn up history, info and videos of the area. No drive-by’s please! No one should enter Waldheim Club private property without an agent and an approved showing.
