My husband and I and another couple spent three days in Gettysburg, PA visiting the historic sights of this town. We booked a two night stay in The Gaslight Inn after viewing their website a few months ago. What a pleasant surprise to find this wonderful B and B right in town, within walking distance of Lincoln Square, wonderful restaurants, small museums, historic homes, and gift shops! Our hists, Mike and Betsy Hanson, suggested places we might like to visit as well as the trolley which would get us around town easily. It is a very efficient trolley system ($3 buys you a day's fare which can be used on all three of the trolley's lines). We took the trolley everywhere, thus freeing us up to wander the town, visit historic sites, go to the new Visitor's Center, and go out to dinner with absolutely no parking problems!
The Gaslight Inn is efficiently run by Mike and Becky Hanson, who are not only attentive to traveler's needs, but friendly, great cooks, and extremely helpful in choosing places to see and dine. Their Inn, with 9 beautiful rooms to choose from is clean and comfy, with three inside sitting areas as well as a large outdoor area surrounded by beautifully kept gardens. The breakfasts we were served were carefully thought out and beautifully presented. The social atmosphere at breakfast allowed us to meet people from all over the country and chat with them as we enjoyed our breakfast. This is a gem of a Bed and Breakfast not to be missed when visiting Gettysburg!
