“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

The Brierfield II Country Guest Cottages are two cottages located about 3 miles outside of downtown Gettysburg. We stayed in the Salt Box. It's an easy drive through the battlefield and then down the road a bit. The salt box was very comfy and cozy complete with a little kitchen area, nice bathroom, ceiling-fan and queen-bed. You can't beat the price. Nancy is a very sweet woman who cooked us breakfast whatever time we wanted. She has put an addition to the back of her house and so you overlook the woods while eating. The room is gorgeous with tall glass windows. The breakfast was great; waffles, biscuits, fruit, omelets, ham. I highly recommend this place. The ONLY reason I could see someone NOT wanting to stay here is the location - you can't just fall out the front door and be in town. But, if you don't mind an 8 minute drive to your own personal cabin - go for it. It was great!

Brierfield Cottages is where we go to escape the crazy world. It it peaceful and quiet. No main street Gettysburg noise. Located about 2 miles from the Eternal Peace Light it is a haven. Owner Nancy is gracious in every respect....true southern hospitality. We stayed in the Pool House Cottage which is large and spacious and meets our even need. Our wonderful breakfasts are served in Nancy's wonderful sunroom....absolutely delicious and elegant. You will not be disappointed!!

We stayed here while we were on our honeymoon in May 2012. We stayed in the Pool House cottage and it was AMAZING! Nancy was wonderful, she let us borrow the audio tour of the battlefield, and told us of places that we should visit. Breakfast was wonderful both days that we were there. We had never stayed at a B&B before, but when we go back to Gettysburg, we will be staying here again!

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad room there!

My wife and I stayed at Salt Box cottage on June 2012. I'm sure there are few people like Nancy- the owner- left in this world. Her hospitality was unmatched!!! The rooms were super clean with no problems whatsoever. Breakfast was amazing and very comfortable! We enjoyed our short visit with Nancy as much as the cottage. We will be looking no further in the future when staying in Gettysburg!

The Salt Box Cottage was the perfect retreat for me and my husband, who were visiting Gettysburg for the first time. We typically don't enjoy B&B's since we like a little more privacy, and Brierfield Guest Cottages fit us perfectly. The cottage itself was very clean, nicely decorated, and well appointed. It was only a short drive downtown but felt a world away from the rest of the tourists. Nancy was a fantastic host-- warm and knowledgeable, and the breakfast was killer. Be advised that payment is cash only.

We stayed at the Salt Box cottage over July 16-17th and loved every minute of our time there. The cottage was carefully and thoughtfully appointed and very clean. Nancy provides an ample breakfast and has a wonderful sense of humor which is coupled with her "farm girl" charm and sensibility. She is a wealth of information on a variety of subjects, and very easy to talk with.
The property is a short drive from the battlefield (closer to the Eternal Light and Seminary ridge than other areas) but not too far away. For those that enjoy getting out of the tourist areas and long for quiet nights and a little added privacy this is the place.
We loved it and hope to return soon.

Room Tip: Both cottages are beautiful!!!
