“Thoughtful luxury with everything you might need”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

My family and I have stayed at Cricket House many times. It has the best location, amenities and charm of any Gettysburg location. Add to this the warmth and friendliness of Deb & Barney; the former always happy to help with restaurant ideas & area attractions, the latter a delightful Cavalier tolerate and sweet to children. Don't miss this treasure!

The house is located in a prime spot but completely private and safe. We are a family of four with two small children. We have stayed in all of the hotels and find them accomodating. But not the same or even comparable. The kids color in the garden, rest on the back porch and cool off inside before we take our walks. The feeling of comfort and being cared for is top notch. I can even see a business man staying there. It is truly a home away from home feeling. The owner, Deb, is a great host and a successful business woman. She understands how to meet her guests needs in every way. We really enjoy the home as if it were ours for the weekend. The trip is always simple and easy. Which is never the case with little kids. I didn't comment on the decor or beautiful style of the house because the photos show it well. I wanted to shared what it feels like to stay there. Our review would be A+

Room Tip: There are two large bedrooms that would make anyone comfortable. We have come to our little getaway...

You have to stay at Cricket House if you're in Gettysburg. Deb is a gracious host in manner and service. The B&B is beautiful, private, comforting, in walking distance of all the best places, and well networked for your best pampering while in town. Even if you have kids. Especially if you have kids. Cricket House is a must.

We just got back from a wonderful girlfriend weekend in Gettysburg Cricket House. We enjoyed all the great accommodation this B&B offers: a beautiful garden, cozy cottage with well stocked kitchen with large fridge for our wine and cheese and breakfast supplies, spectacular spa services which include mani-pedi, infrared sauna, and wonderful message. We were within walking distance of all the Gettysburg battlefield attractions, restaurants, and shops. We also hopped in our car for the 10 minute drive to the outlets when it rained. Best feature of Cricket House is the owner and the willingness to answer our questions, give us recommendations, and truly accommodate us. We had a great time!

My husband and I have stayed at the Cricket House multiple times now and it truly has become our home away from home. The owner Deb is so sweet and welcoming. The location is great, close to the center of town but also close to parts of the battlefield. The house itself is so cute and cozy and always very clean and well kept. The private fenced in backyard is great for cooking on the grill and relaxing. We can not wait for our next trip. I would recommend the Cricket House to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.

Staying at the Cricket House is like staying in your home. I went to Gettysburg College and have stayed at all the hotels in Gettysburg when I return to campus, and this blows them away.

It is a clean, well kept, beautiful home in a prime location in Historic Gettysburg. It is perfect for a family or couples looking to visit Gettysburg.

Easy walk into the center of town, bars, restaurants, campus and battlefields. Owner of the Cricket House is well known and respected in the community.

Highly recommend the Cricket House!

I've had the pleasure to stay at The Cricket House several times over the past few years and it just gets better and better. Not only is the house absolutely beautiful, but it is located blocks away from the Gettysburg Square. There is sooo much to do in the area. Between several of the historic battlefield attractions and the many downtown restaurants and boutiques, you are guaranteed to have a great time. Deb is a fabulous and knowledgeable host, and will be more than helpful in making your experience in Gettysburg one to remember!
