Everyday joy is a way of life at Amblebrook, the best new community in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

Last year was chock‑full of milestones. From the opening of our stunning new clubhouse to the groundbreaking of our state‑of‑the‑art fitness center—and a long list of high points in between—it’s easy to see why Amblebrook emerged as the most popular new community in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania in 2021. In fact, we had the opportunity to enrich our community by welcoming 80 new families to Amblebrook last year.  

Amblebrook Clubhouse

Rock Creek Clubhouse hit the ground running—in stunning style.

Momentum was built in 2021 with the opening of our 24,000 square foot clubhouse, now the scene of Mahjong games, happy hours, food demos, paint and sip evenings, yoga classes, spur‑of‑the‑moment Karaoke nights, and so much more. From foodies and fitness buffs to sports fans and art aficionados, anyone planning to retire in Gettysburg will find something to love at Rock Creek Clubhouse.

But wait … there’s more.

Rock Creek Club was only part of the story in 2021. We followed up on that expansive amenity by breaking ground on another 24,000 square feet of space exclusively devoted to fitness and well‑being. With plans to open late this year, Rock Creek Fitness Center will be filled with cutting‑edge features and wellness benefits, exemplifying the highest standards for a 55+ community in Gettysburg, PA. To round out our 2021 story, we expanded the walking and cycling trail system, enabling our residents to enhance their outdoor exercise routine while enjoying our scenic community.  

As we launched new amenities and welcomed new neighbors to the community, last year was the perfect opportunity to count our blessings and re‑energize our brand. We created a new logo, vibrant colors, and an engaging website, all inspired by the fulfilling Amblebrook lifestyle.
