“Calling all closet history buffs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

As my review title suggests, we are closet history buffs and enjoy learning about our country's past which prompted our visit to Gettysburg. I booked a Presidential Lodge at The Lodges with the Galloping into History package for my family of 4, children ages 15 and 21. The view from our lodge was beautiful, and the lodge itself was rustic with modern convenience. Our lodge had plenty of breathing room as it had a bedroom/living room area, kitchenette, separate bedroom, and bathroom. The small patio was perfect for stargazing and wine sipping. Continental breakfast is included. The staff was knowledgable and friendly. For the galloping part of our package, we chose the 2 hour horseback ride. It was a fun way to learn about our country's history! We had one issue during this stay: On our first night, the shower was backed up. It took 2 phone calls to get somebody out to fix it, but I get the feeling that this is not the norm. I recommend this hotel
for history buffs who like to get away from it all. There is plenty of history to explore nearby. I also think this area is best for older kids because they will appreciate the stories that are told.

Just returned from a 6 person, 2 night stay at the Lodges. It was just the best experience ever. Having a Lieutenant Lodge was so much better than a regular motel room. We were not cramped or on top of each other. The views were amazing, the staff were very friendly and helpful, the lodge was very clean, the kitchen with the larger refrigerator was perfect. The front porch and chairs were great. I would definitely advise anyone going to Gettysburg to check out this amazing place. The grandkids fished twice. The pictures on the website are a perfect example of the Lodges. We have already recommended this to a friend for tonight & hope her family could get it. GREAT staff, great concept, great location - just a perfect get-away! We will be back,

Room Tip: We stayed at the New Hampshire Lodge and had a super view over the mountains - could see for miles.

We absolutely loved our stay. It is so nice and quiet but not to far from the restaurants and sites of Gettysburg. My husband and son enjoyed fishing on the property. The staff was very nice and friendly. When we got into our lodge I turned on bathroom light and blew a fuse. My husband contacted the front desk and within five minutes it was taken care of. We had a two bedroom two bath lodge. Loved it. FYI no DVD player in lodge. We assumed there would be.
The Lodges at Gettysburg is a great place when visiting Gettysburg. We are planning a return trip in October.

We had our wedding there and then stayed in the captains lodge for our honeymoon night... absolutely gorgeous!!! You will not be disappointed with your stay there, I know we most definitely were not disappointed. I would highly recommend this place if you're thinking about having a wedding reception there as well.

The Lodes have a rustic exterior and an up to date interior. If you really want the Hampton or Hilton, then stay at your preferred chain. This is a bit different. I stayed twice, and both times relished the quiet and peaceful atmosphere.

We had a "Captain's Qtrs," which is a large single room cabin with a spacious and modern bathroom and a small porch with a couple of Adirondack chairs and a great view over the valley to the Round Tops. For the Civil War tourist not wanting to get entrapped in the commercial bustle of downtown Gettysburg, this is a great location.

It also looks like it would be a great little wedding venue. There were a couple going on while we were there, and all the young people seemed very happy.

I'd also note that every staff member we met was friendly and accommodating. My only complaint: I want a bigger TV- spoiled aren't we.

Room Tip: Captains Quarters are the way to go unless traveling with a larger group.
