“lovely victorian home”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

this is a lovely victorian home owned by 2 pleasant innkeepers, mike and marjorie. they are very accomodating and try to make your stay as comfortable as possible. my only complaint was that the heating pipes were banging loudly, in my room, the first night. the solution was to turn the heat off and use the very good (and quiet) portable heater that was in the room. when that was remedied, i slept well. it's a beautiful home and delicious breakfasts are served. they are located in a quiet part of town and are not far from the battlefield. there is also a chinese restaurant nearby, which is convenient if you like chinese food. the restaurant isn't fancy, but the food was pretty good.the keystone also has good parking, in a lot behind the house. i would definitely return!

Room Tip: some of the rooms have hand held showers, which i think are a real plus! unfortunately, mine didn...

My husband and I recently visited Gettysburg for the first time and we chose the Keystone Inn as our home base. This beautiful home is in a quiet part of town (about 5 blocks from the square) and the owners, Mike and Marj, are very personable and friendly. Mike does the cooking and joins Marj in the dining room after the last course is served to sit and chat with guests. The breakfasts are very good; if you leave the table hungry, it's your own fault!

We stayed in the Michael Bowers room, which was more than big enough for the two of us. Some might consider the bathroom a little snug, but it was functional and clean. I had two issues with the room. The first was that there was a bit of a mildew, almost septic smell when you entered the room (the bathroom is located immediately to the right). I mentioned the odor to Mike because it seemed to bother my allergies a bit (possibly because of mildew from a leak). He was very accommodating in trying to find something (room deodorizers) to help with the odor, but in the end we just dealt with it. My husband believes it was due to a cracked seal around the toilet outlet, so it sounds a like something that can be fixed fairly easily.

The other issue has to do more with personal preference. The Michael Bowers room is one of two rooms on the second floor that has access to the back balcony and stairs. Being a much older home, the door had a transom window above it. Unfortunately, this window isn't covered so if you are a person who likes a really dark room for sleeping, as I am, you might be bothered by the light that comes in from this window.

Overall, we had a very nice trip and would consider staying here again.

Room Tip: Rooms without access to the back balcony probably provide a darker environment for sleeping.

We have been to Gettysburg many times, however this was our first time at the Keystone Inn. This is one of the loveliest B&Bs that we have visited. No comfort was overlooked. This 100 year old Inn has gorgeous oak woodwork and staircase. There are king and queen spacious rooms, and suites. Our room and bathroom were spotless, and the bed was very comfortable. Two recliners in the room made for a nice sitting area.
Mike and Marj, the innkeepers, were wonderful, and took time to sit and chat with us while we enjoyed our delicious breakfast. Coffee, a huge selection of teas, and a variety of hot chocolate are available anytime.
There is a comfortable sitting room, a library, and for the warmer months a huge front porch and beautifully landscaped back yard to enjoy and relax.
We will be back.

Four retired military couples, who gather every year for a reunion, met in Gettysburg this October and stayed at the Keystone Inn. Wonderful experience - clean, spacious, comfortable, with outstanding breakfasts and attention to detail throughout (example: provided free Battlefield tour CDs and Civil War reading material in rooms). Plenty of off street parking and the Inn is not far from downtown or the Battlefield Park.

Room Tip: We stayed on the second floor center, but I don't think there is a bad room in the house.

This was the first B&B my wife and I ever went to. It was an amazing experience! We thought the breakfast was outstanding and it was nice to have the hot chocolate and coffee out at any time of the day.

Mike and Marj took were extremely nice and took some time to sit down at breakfast and talk with us. They seem to really love running the Keystone Inn. Mike also let us borrow his Gettysburg audio CDs to play in our car as we toured the battlefields.

The room was great, very comfortable. The house itself is beautiful and was nicely decorated for fall when we went in October. The neighborhood is very quiet and it was close to the center of town and the battlefields.

We want to go back again. This is the best way to experience Gettysburg!

Very pretty place. Clean and relaxing. Our room had a private entrance with a small sitting area(used when weather was good), a jetted tub, fireplace and a sitting room stocked with hot chocolate tea and coffee. The Innkeeper was very nice. He gave us a tour of our room before scooting off and giving us our privacy. The room was clean and quiet. The towels are the SOFTEST towels EVER! How do you get them so soft?! The grounds are very pretty with lots of places to sit and enjoy the garden. There is private parking in the back of the Inn. The only negative is that it is a bit of a long walk to the shops that I frequent. It's not far from the square. Very nice place to stay.

I can't the times I've stayed at the Keystone Inn. This year I brought a group of 10 men with me as I led the tour. Mike and Marj did a great job of taking care of us as they always do. The place is clean, relaxed, beautiful and the breakfasts are very good. Mike and Marj provided some special requested services I asked for without hesitation. I stayed for another 6 days after my tour left and enjoyed every day and night there. I can't recommend this place enough.
