This B & B is all about an excellent guest experience. The place is very close to Gettysburg, just off a busy highway, but nestled back into a farm-like setting. As soon as we arrived, it felt like a resort. The place is spotless and the attention to detail in decorating is amazing. Each room has its own character. The rooms generally have a regular room plus a "Florida Room" type deck, very comfortable. It was nice to have a place to sit and relax after a day at the Memorial.
The owners are helped by the wife's parents and all four individuals seem committed to service. They were friendly, helpful and it's obvious that they are all hard-working. There's a common kitchen stocked with some basic necessities. You can make a meal there if you wish. We ate out, except for the breakfast which was eggs benedict, a fruit tray and sticky buns. Everything was fresh and the food was unique and delicious. Overall, the owners showed a perfect balance between making supplies and rooms available and getting out of your hair on the one hand, while serving and interacting with friendliness on the other.
An indoor pool is in a separate building. It's a great retreat decorated around the outside with plants and two fireplaces. A parlor, a billiards room and a movie room fill out the opportunities that exist for entertaining yourself.
We were looking for a place to go while exploring Gettysburg, but we will look to include this B&B in our future getaway plans.
