This is a unique experience in fabulous environment! My husband and I stayed at the Inn for three nights in October of this year. The Inn has only been open for three months so there were a couple of very minor issues that I am sure will resolved very soon. There are just 18 rooms in the Inn so it never has a feeling of a hotel. Our room was a very large corner room with a comfortable king bed. It was beautifully and appropriately decorated. The bathroom had both a tub and a shower and was quite large and well appointed with luxury soaps, shampoos etc. There was a small refrigerator and coffee maker in the room. If I remember correctly, there was coffee but no tea. We drink tea and since lots of places that have coffee makers have coffee but no tea, we carry our own so it is never an issue with us. There is no food service at the Inn but there is a handy cafe just across the parking lot and lots of places to eat in the town of Gettysburg and its surrounding areas. The couple of little things I brought to the attention of the receptionist were: 1) the large lovely desk in the corner of the room had a large lamp on it but there was no electrical outlet within reach of the desk so that corner did not have enough light to make the desk useful. 2) the room had only one outlet that was available for charging electronics unless you unplugged the coffee maker which gives a second outlet. We carry a power strip so we could make this work but I suggested that with everyone carrying cell phones, computers or ipads, cameras etc., it would be good to address this issue in the rooms. 3) we had no luggage racks the first night and only one the second and third nights. As most rooms are filled with two or more visitors I suggested that have two luggage rack per room would be reasonable. We were very careful covering the desk with towels on the desk for one suitcase but I would have been more comfortable with luggage racks. As I said these issues were very minor but I would hope that the Inn would address these as it would enhance visitors' stays. The staff was very helpful in assisting us with reservations and how, where and what to do and see. Our visit was mid October and if you plan to be in Gettysburg on a weekend in the fall you must make restaurant reservations at least a couple of days before arriving. Everything was booked when we arrived but Colleen did get us in Dobbin House the second night and it was wonderful. Staying in the school, now the Inn, was a special experience. The owner has contracted with an archivist and is going to be doing more to bring the school's history into the experience of staying in the Inn. That said, there are a few pictures in the downstairs common area of classes from way back that are not to be missed. I also want to point out that there are some issues regarding accessibility. Parking is close to the entrance and easy. There is a nice ramp up to the front door but there is no elevator so if stairs are an issue be sure to book on the first floor. Also the stairs to the second floor are more than the average number of steps and the ceilings on the first floor are very high. You pretty much have to do your own luggage so if that is an issue just be sure you are on the first floor. We managed the second floor just fine but I am writing this so if this is an issue for you, you can plan for it. We enjoyed our stay at the Inn and think that staying there added a wonderful plus to our fabulous experience in Gettysburg. If going to Gettysburg definitely plan a stay at the Federal Pointe Inn.
The upstairs corner rooms are lovely and well worth the little extra to stay in one of there rooms.
