We traveled with friends, another couple, to visit the Gettysburg National Military Park. We spent 3 nights at the Barker House, and could not have been happier with the hosts and the B&B. The beds were very comfortable and the house interesting and charming. Elizabeth and Bob are as friendly as can be, and quick to make knowledgable recommendations about... More

Thank you Bob and Elizabeth for a great stay! Beautiful home and incredible breakfasts! It feels like you are staying at a friends home not just a hotel. The furnishing are very much from the period of the home.

Our first Bed and Breakfast experience and it was wonderful from the start. We came with our friends and the four of us never expected the warm and heartful welcome we received. From the moment we arrived two of the sweetest people greeted us and began telling the house history. Elizabeth and Bob as we know them now, are not... More

Thank you for the kind words. We really enjoyed having you as guest. It was especially nice for me as we had Orange County, NY ties. Lots of good memories. Meeting folks like you and making new friends is what Innkeeping is all about. We look forward to seeing you again. Elizabeth and Bob More

You can't beat New Oxford as an easy access point to Gettysburg, Adams County, and Hanover. The other reviewers are correct - Bob and Elizabeth are great hosts and fountains of knowledge about the area. You'll find there is a lot to do in the area; we spent three days there and didn't do everything we wanted to do. I... More

We wanted a bit of quiet as we began a frantic road trip vacation and we were not disappointed. Elizabeth and Bob were gracious hosts! And they were so attentive to our needs that we felt as though we were staying with friends. Breakfast each morning was a treat and so hearty that a two meal day would have been... More

We felt more like guests at a friends house than patrons. Elizabeth and Bob are delightful people and excellent innkeepers. The facilities are elegantly antiquated yet have fully modern conveniences. Sitting on the porch sipping wine and beer was sooooo relaxing. Breakfast was a treat. The cookies were good too. Bob and Janet

We spent some time here while antiquing - not only is it a great location for walking to the terrific antique shops in New Oxford, but Gettysburg is a short drive away. The hosts were so nice to talk to, and breakfast was special, so much so that we tried some of the specialty breakfast ideas at home. If you... More
